For picky chil­dren and even pick­ier adults, try­ing out toys be­fore buy­ing them is a great idea. Es­pe­cially if it is at a store that of­fers a unique space of dis­cov­ery, says Su­san Tay, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of The Bet­ter Toy Store. “There is no greater joy for us than be­ing able to light up a child’s face by en­ter­tain­ing them with a pup­pet or two. Or to place a Steiff plush toy into the hands of cu­ri­ous browsers, so that they may feel for them­selves crafts­man­ship that took 137 years to perfect.

“It’s about that feel­ing many peo­ple take with them long after they’ve stepped out of our doors.” And it’s the same feel­ing that keeps them com­ing back, she adds.
