Really nice smaller toy type store for kids. They feature a higher quality product than you see at many toy stores and put some thought into the educational sides if things too. It is a bit more expensive than a large toy store, but they send coupons regularly if you get in mailing list. Staff and service is excellent and really helpful. And they offer free gift wrapping year round making it the only spot to go for birthday gifts.

Places like this might not be long for this world. Get here while you can and support local toy stores. Kids can’t play with toys online. Wonderful to have a place like this where kids can be kids. Staff are so nice it will make you reevaluate yourself as to how good a person you are. Great diversity in toys. Great location. Best in the whole triangle. To all that work there, thank you!

I can't help but love these stores. Really great place for educational and fun gifts for kids of all ages. They have some decent STEM sets as well. Really unique and hard-to-find board games including several that teach kids basic programming skills. I'm a huge supporter of educational play and this is a great resource.

We had another great experience at the Learning Express! Brought the kiddos in to pick out birthday gifts! They were wrapped free of charge, discretely and they always have such great options for a multitude of age ranges!! Thank you Cam for your great customer service!!

It's a fun store and they let you try out the toys before you buy them.

I ran in at ten minutes before closing to grab a gift for my niece. Both the ladies working were so nice! They helped me find what I was looking for and told me to take my time looking around. Their selection is great and their prices were reasonable.

Filled with quality toys. Helpful staff. Complimentary gift wrap. Lots of play stations with toys available for testing and lots of children enjoying them. One missing item is the colored wooden building blocks that I was searching for, but I did find some toys I was equally happy with. Worrisome to see so many blank storefronts nearby. This whole area is getting way overbuilt for retail while Amazon and other giants are killing local retail.

I shopped here today for the first time, searching for board games for a friend's children and for my family. The store had an excellent selection of high quality toys and games, and it was easy for me to find what I was looking for. The outstanding customer service is what prompted me to write this review. I stood in the checkout line for less than a minute, and several staff members apologized for my wait time and greeted me with a smile. While I waited for the gift wrap of my purchases (again, very short wait) another staff member approached me to ask if I needed any assistance. A few days before Christmas I had expected long lines and tired and cranky staff members. I found just the opposite! I will be back and will certainly recommend this store to others. Wishing all of the staff members a very happy holiday and kudos!
