Duck Duck Goose has it's good and bad points. They do have a nice selection of toys and games for kids and really promote things that will stimulate the imagination. On the downside, I found them to be a little pricey and because of that, not the first place I'd go if I was looking for a gift. They advertise home "Build a Bear" parties that are a great idea, but the cost is more than going to the retail store itself. The staff person I spoke to was very nice but didn't have answers to my questions, and I left without a positive impression of the store.
