Piccolo Mondo is a great new toy store in the Bethany area. It's actually located in the Bethany Village Shopping Center near QFC. This is a wonderful independent toy store with a big selection of toys. They have a big selection of BRIO and other train toys. There is also a very nice selection of science kits and toys from which to choose. This store has a lot of charm and personality. This is not the place to go to find Fisher Price or Lego toys. Piccolo Mondo focuses more on the toys you can't get at the big toy stores and mass merchandisers.
The book section wasn't too big, but there were a few classics to choose from and hopefully that area will be expanding.
Browsing this store is a treat for parents as well as children and I had a hard time leaving when it was time to go. There were so many great, well made toys for kids of all ages.
Prices are fine, but this is not a discount-type store. The toys they carry are nice quality and the prices refelct that quality.
I am glad to have this wonderful toy store in my neighborhood.
