They have a good collection of books, toys, accessories (such as backpacks) and small items. It's all "sophisticated" brands, You won't find Disney here or Mattel here. Which also means that it's not cheap - most things are a little pricier then Amazon. But than again, it's a local store that's a neighborhood feature, not a faceless conglomerate with unchecked power. There offer story time during weekends in various languages, mostly held by people from the neighborhood that wish to share their culture and find a community for their children. There's a kids' play room that's fantastic and is very popular especially over the winter, and it's absolutely OK to spend the afternoon reading books without making a purchase. The staff is knowledgeable and patient and most of the time seems unbothered. It is not, sadly, wheelchair accessible. There was also conflict with the employer about two years ago when employees organized into a Union. The neighborhood got on their hind legs and it seems to have resolved, but keep an eye for labor justice.
