This children's toy store is a true gem on the UES.  Tucked away on 91st Street just east of 92nd Street Y, the small store is run by a lovely couple who can find the perfect toy for anyone. Just tell them the age and what they like, they'll point you in the right direction of a truly unique toy that you wouldn't find at any large box store.  They will even wrap it for you! This store has saved me many times when I have forgot to get a gift for a kid's party and the gift is always a hit!  Don't go looking for any crazy electronic gifts, but they'll have classic toys that are educational and fun!  Check it out!
