about Magic Beans:
For expectant parents looking to start a registry or get a complete introduction to the wide world of baby gear, make an appointment for best service.
In the toy department, as might be expected, Magic Beans has a very strong Infant/Toddler/Preschool section, but surprisingly, they also have a lot to offer for older children as well. There's a comprehensive arts and crafts department, a spygear section, a vast selection of puppets and stuffed animals ranging from Beanie Babies to Steiff, a healthy dose of dolls, dollhouses and dress-up, and a full range of Lego, Playmobil, Brio, Thomas and Erector. Magic Beans is also a flagship dealer for Bruder trucks, so they are always well stocked with an excellent selection.
The store also features a spacious play area complete with nursing chairs, two train tables and tons of other toys to sample. There is a regular schedule of programs in this space, including fitness classes, a weekly new moms' group, storytime, a kids' knitting circle and much more. We've highlighted some of these activities in our calendar, and be sure to visit the store's website for a complete schedule of events.
There is always complimentary gift wrap on all purchases and a very good frequent buyer program.
