A Toy Store Story
Two things strike me the minute I step into Jack and Maddy Toy Store in Blue Mountain Village. First, my credit card loves the fact that they never had this toy store here when we used to bring our kids up to ski. Second, I'm wondering, why wasn’t this around when I was a kid?
This family-run establishment is stocked with a variety of kid-pleasers: board games dominate one wall, Lego products another. Art products and brain-teasers are a given, which should be no surprise at all.
“We all had kids,” says co-owner Tracey Lindberg. “And we had a solid mission statement.”
Products you find in this Village institution have to be well-made and they have to be educational. As a person who used to be a kid I am firmly convinced they’ve achieved their goal.
