Disclosure: We were invited to the Grand Opening as media! We received gift bags for attending.

Oh what a site it was! Toys here. Toys there. Toys everywhere! We were invited to have an amazing time at the grand opening of the new Mary Arnold Toy store here in NYC. As soon as you walk in, you could sense the love and friendliness in the store. Would you believe it is considered NYC’s Oldest Continuously running Toy Store? 

The store, which opened originally in 1931, had been on Lexington between 72nd and 73rd for 19 years before the new move to Lexington Avenue between 80th and 81st Streets. Ezra and Judy Ishayik are the owners of this small in size, but Big in fun shop. The Father-Daughter duo greeted everyone like family and made our first experience at the Mary Arnold Toy Store truly wonderful.

When I told my friend about it, she got really excited since she grew up going to that toy store! She now has her own sone and was excited to introduce him to a piece of her childhood.

Everything you buy at the Mary Arnolds Toy store is Gift wrapped and free delivery is provided within a 20 block radius. I can only imagine how children must feel when they receive a hand wrapped gift personally delivered to their door. 

Their new location is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. It’s only right that you stop by if you’re ever on the Upper East Side!

What are your favorite Childhood Toy Store memories?

  1. I love toys stores like this. It is so much fun for the kids to shop and they usually have toys that not everyone has. I especially like that they usually aren't full of plastic made in china toys. This one will be on my list the next time I am in NYC.

  2. How fun! My sister and I used to love playing in toy stores. I have so many awesome memories bonding with her! It reminds me of Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. πŸ™‚

  3. Your post reminds me of the good old days when shop owners cared about their customers and even treated them like neighbors and friends…

  4. This is amazing! It looks like a fabulous and super fun place. I can only imagine how my little guy would be if I take him there!

  5. Wow this is incredible! I can only imagine how my little guy is going to be if I take him there. Sounds like a really great storeπŸ’•
