Amy Rutherford’s elves have thankfully opened Pippin Toy Co. just in time. This fantastic new addition to the city is the answer to your holiday shopping prayers!

A sister store to Penny Post and Red Barn Mercantile, Pippin Toy Co. shares that special sauce that Amy’s known for. The store features a candy wall, a STEM section, a building block room, and arts and crafts. Sweet stuffies and nostalgic toys are sprinkled throughout — it seriously feels like Santa’s best work.

You can find the perfect gifts for a child’s head, hands, and heart!

The shop is located in the 1300 block of King Street and is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

We’re so happy to see this addition to the city! Happy shopping and happy holidays!
