BEST toy shop in the City!!! You can find just about everything in this store and the prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We bought just a little bit of everything and our 4... year old especially loved the Little Red Riding Hood Game which was recommended to us! We will definitely be back soon. See More

We love Building Blocks! The owner and staff really care about their customers and finding quality toys. The customer service is just fantastic. I've been able to sit outside in my car and buy birthda...y gifts so I didn't have to bring my kids in when my time was short. But we also love coming here for the fun events the owner organizes (I always try to buy something when we come to support her store as much as I can! Which is easy- so many awesome choices! #buyallthetoys ) The owner is also a fantastic community supporter! Thank you! See More

Thank you Katherine and the Building Blocks staff!! I can never decide what to get my friends' kids for the holidays and birthdays but every time I call or go to the store, I always get excellent cust...omer service and gifts (at all different prices) that their kids love. I have had wrapped gifts delivered to me, mailed, and/or waiting for me at the store. Basically, I say I need gifts for 4 kids ranging from 4 to 9 years old and I get tons of suggestions for toys. THANK YOU for all that you do, especially during this time of year! Happy Holidays! See More

My 8 year old daughter's favorite place! The employees are very pleasant and helpful. A wonderful experience. The only problem is, she wants to spend all day there (kind of like her mom in a book stor...e �)! Which reminds me, they also carry a quality selection of books. See More

I wholeheartedly agree. I love Building Blocks! Actually, I have a hole in my heart now that my son has outgrown the place. He and I spent a lot of time there. Good Times!

I live in another state (and had my item shipped) but was thrilled with the instant service and a customized product for my daughter which arrived in just a few short days, even in December!

It may be St Patrick's Day today but we're too excited for Easter. Check out the EggMazing. It's a fun and mess-free way to decorate eggs. Plus, it's really mesmerizing to watch the colorful egg spin around 😍
It's finally here!!!! It's a Magical Sequins day!!!
