Nice selection of toys but small and limited. More laser etched signs and that seemed the focus of store. Cute wooden toys but small store. Looked bigger in pictures. Overall it was nice

You probably won't see this store from the street--the shop is down a shaded hallway. Even if you're not in the market for toys, taking 10 minutes to appreciate Tim's creativity is fun. To be direct, Helen is kitschy. But we can presume that when...More

Buy local. Owner was nice. But what puzzled me was a puppet behind counter. We were looking for one for my daughter in Germany but didn’t see one. I asked on price and he said he bought it and was to high to resale. What...More

It was so nice for me and my family to go to a store with solid toys, and get to see Tim himself. We cannot leave Helen, GA without visiting his store at least once.

Everyone was very friendly while we were in the store. They had a decent amount of things for sale but I especially liked the cabin signs and children's toys. They had lots of things available for customization. I purchased a door hanger and they made...More

My son and I visited this store while shopping in Helen. Everything is made of wood by the owner. They have a lot of unique things. I loved the old fashioned wooded duck push toy. So cute!
