The Toy Tree is a great place to go if you are tired of the plastic jungle of places like Toys R Us. The toys here are terrific - lots of crafty kits - scrapbooks, jewelry, paint your own umbrella. They have Thomas the Tank Engine toys and accessories. They even have some of the old-fashioned toys that I played with as a child...do you remember that pull-toy rotary phone that had eyes that wiggle when you roll it?
You can park along Church Hill Road or go behind the Toy Tree for more parking - if that's full, go to the large lot around the corner past Mocha coffee shop, it's a short pleasant walk through Sandy Hook Center to get over to the Toy Tree.
