54There’s a new toy store in town, kickin’ Madison Park’s charm factor up another notch. Red Wagon Toys recently opened up shop in the heart of it all (right next to Cactus). Stroller-pushing parents on their way home from the park or beach can just pop in to stock up on gifts for those upcoming birthday parties. Red Wagon’s owner, who has been a Madison Park merchant for over 11 years (he also owns Cookin’ two doors down), noticed an opportunity in the area and a collective desire to shop locally.

The well-organized shop is arranged by category (baby gifts, books, games, dinosaurs, etc) making it easy to find exactly what you need. With everything from stickers to big-ticket items, such as Kettler trikes, the wide price range ensures something for everyone. We spotted adorable non-piggy animal banks (owls, frogs & turtles), a fab dress-up area with equally cool stuff for boys and girls, and even a small party section complete with invitations, wrapping paper, candles, and a re-usable felt birthday banner . Don’t forget the balloons-you can order a “bunch” in advance or just get one or two anytime. Join the birthday club for a special gift certificate and keep an eye out (by joining their store mailing list) for special events coming down the road such as story times and handprint days.

From one “Red” to another, welcome to the neighborhood!
