The Barnhill House Toys & Books


About Us

This old-fashioned toy store is filled floor to ceiling with hard-to-find classic toys and books, puzzles and pedal cars. You'll feel like you've stepped back into your childhood as you search for nostalgic toys and discover those storybooks your grandmother used to read to you.

A delightful collection of children's toys, books, and dress-up clothes. Old timey pedal cars, Gund plush animals, Radio Flyer wagons and tricycles fill the rooms of this charming old house. Betsy Newman, the owner, was a Kindergarten teacher before opening this toy and book store. Now she just plays all day.
