“Until recently, I never took much interest in toy stores,” says mom Jackie Howard.

“For me, I only entered when an obligation sent me through the front doors. I didn’t discern between stores nor did I pay much attention to product lines. All this changes after I had kids.

“Suddenly, I wanted to know where my toys were built, what they were built with and who built them. I wanted help when choosing a toy—someone to advise if it is age appropriate or demonstrate the many attributes it held. I get all this at Granville Island Toy Company.”
