Kaboodles Toy Store Giveaway

Comments 145 by Rebecca Bollwitt

There’s something incredibly charming about a neighbourhood toy store and since 1980, Kaboodles Toy Store has been the local toy experts in Metro Vancouver, carrying anything from “traditional toys to the downright zany!”

Lee Richmond, who owns a chain of four neighborhood toy stores, Kaboodles, has been a Vancouver institution for over 30 years. A toy enthusiast at heart, she visits Toy Fairs from Toronto to New York each year to source the most fun and exciting new toys for the holiday season. This year, Lee says, even Santa will be inspired with some of the amazing new toys to enter the toy scene.

Kaboodles has four locations, Point Grey Village, Granville Island, Cambie Street, and Victoria and they have been busy this season stocking baby toys, arts and craft kits, outdoor activity items, science and nature kits, stickers, building toys, and much more.

    Whether I win or not I just want to say that we should all support local stores like Kaboodles. My kids both love Lego and have for years, and in fact, Santa’s gift to my youngest son was the Lego mining set bought at a local toy store. Now we have so much Lego that they build ‘free style’ and are working on some very cool stop motion animation.

  143. NellieSaturday, December 28th, 2013 — 5:32pm PST
