What’s not to love about a day devoted to local toy stores? One of our favorite shops, Rainbow Toys in Falmouth, is hosting a daylong event this Saturday to celebrate! The lovely staff promises all kinds of free fun for kids. There will be arts and crafts, face painting, and a giant outdoor game of chess.
The store is also raffling off a Rainbow Loom and bands (which are popular in the CP household these days), a Star Wars Lego set, books, stuffed animals, and craft kits from Alex Toys.
If you’re not near to Rainbow Toys, there are many independent toy shops throughout Maine: Island Treasure Toys, Planet Toys, Stone Soup, Out on a Whimsey, Percy’s Burrow, Bella Luna Toys, Treehouse Toys, and more. To find a toy store near your town, try this handy link.

My favorite things about Rainbow Toys is the helpful staff, convenient Falmouth location, and wide selection of toys for kids of all ages!
I love supporting our locals! Rainbow toys offers a unique, high quality selection you won’t find at big box stores…. And they offer gift wrapping to boot!
I love both Rainbow Toys and Island Treasure Toys for their unique selection of high quality toys in many different price ranges.
I love the advice you can get about what to buy.
Ok, so I have to admit up front – I am new here. I have yet to discover “my local toy store”! I am off to try the link you provided to do just that. I DO however have a love of 2 other stores, one from my own childhood, one from my older child’s. What I loved in each, the history and knowledge and the pure enjoyment that the owners had. They LOVED what they did! They shared in the joy when that “perfect” treasure was purchased and given to the child. They became part of our families, watching our kids grow up. Anything that was sold in their store was tried and true, it was not about money, but about sharing the joy of it all 🙂
I love all the wooden toys and unique games.
I love that my son has a chance to try out different toys on display while we are visiting!
We love that our local toy store is not overwhelming like the big box stores are!
I love the unique selection of quality toys!
My favorite part of my local toy store is the wide selection of Melissa and Doug products!
I love that they have a wide variety of educational toys at Rainbow Toys. It’s so easy to find something that kids and their parents will love. AND they gift wrap for free!
they always have educational toys and the knowledge about them.
I wish I saw this post yesterday – sounds like such a fun event! I live near Percy’s Burrow and one of my favorite things about them is that they do fun events like story hour and exotic animal shows.
