Ian Filippini Santa Barbara is no stranger to toy stores. He has four nieces, one nephew and another one on the way, so many months of the year come with buying birthday or holiday presents for these lucky kids. Ian Filippini Santa Barbara is a great uncle and has definitely searched for the best Santa Barbara area toy stores over the years. Unfortunately, the choices are not plentiful, but some have some real quality and unique gift items.
One of Ian Filippini Santa Barbara’s favorite toy stores in the area is Toy Crazy in Montecito (www.gotoycrazy.com). Though it is a small store, they have a variety of toy and art options for infants to ten year olds. If you are looking for something unique that you won’t find at Target, Toy Crazy is your place. Toy Crazy is located in the Montecito Country Mart.
Another fun Santa Barbara area toy store is Chicken Little (www.chickenlittlekids.com). Chicken Little is geared more towards young kids and also has a variety of baby necessities as well such as cribs, rocking chairs and high chairs They also have very unique gifts that are fun for baby showers. Chicken Little is located in downtown Santa Barbara on State Street.
Of course a list of toy stores would not be complete without mentioning the ever popular Toys R Us. Santa Barbara has a “mini” Toys R Us located in the La Cumbre Mall. It is a small space, but it is packed from floor to ceiling with toys that any aged child would love to have (just ask Ian Filippini Santa Barbara). One of the cool things about having a Toys R Us is that you can order and pay for something online and go pick it up in store as long as they have it in stock. (www.toysrus.com).
