I love Learning Express! They encourage us to actually play with the toys before we invest in them. The staff knows the top toys for each age group so when I am looking for a birthday gift for my out of town niece, they direct me to several choices. Ellie has loved all of her gifts and her parents tell me that when she sees a box coming from me, she is super excited to see what is inside! Not to mention, they also offer free gift wrapping!
