• After more than 40 years, it's still the place children run to.

    The importance of play, on display at the Gingerbread House. Come say hi, and see what's new.

  • The more you play,
    the more you grow.

    Visit us at the Gingerbread House to find hundreds of toys that help
    children develop and to explore the importance of play.

12 Days of Giving Program

On the 12 Days of Giving, the Gingerbread House gave to me… a way to give as easy as can be! 

On select dates in November we will be donating 10% of our sales to one of 12 local non-profit organizations that support children. Stop by the Gingerbread House on your charity's day and a portion of your purchase will help support our community!

The Purpose of Play

Toys are the tools of learning for kids; they are a way to help develop creativity.
Toys and play help children become the person they are going to be.
