I always go to Child's Play with my kids (3 and 5) to pick out birthday gifts for parties. They have a great selection of unusual items and can usually make suggestions if we are stumped. The staff does an excellent job wrapping the gifts (at no charge) and we can browse (play) while we wait. We went this Sunday, for our usual pre-party shopping trip and they didn't open until the time the party was supposed to start. Oh No! Fortunately, there was someone in the store. I pled my case and they let us in early, let us purchase our gifts and wrapped them for us before the store was even open! How great is that!?!? I'll certainly be more careful about checking hours of operation in the future, but we'll definitely continue to do all of our toy shopping at Child's Play. Oh, and by the way. Santa shops and has his gifts wrapped here too. The elves at the store use special holiday wrapping paper that we don't have at home!
