YOU GET THE THRILL OF DISCOVERY
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.
