Meet the Hershmans:

After spending six years in the human services field in Massachusetts, Lori and her husband Mickey came back to Connecticut, to their roots, to try their luck in retail. That was in 1986 and they never looked back. They raised 3 boys and opened 3 toy stores all while working together as a family. They are a true mom and pop old fashioned run business that has stood the test of time. They have a team of energetic staff, unrivaled customer service, offer free gift wrapping and have gift certificates for those who can't make up their mind. The Hershmans deliver on the customer experience promise every time. It is their dedication to our community and always choosing the "best in toys" that makes their customers come back time and time again.
