"What are the best toy stores online?" is a question we've been asked quite a few times. Now, coming up with the 'best' store is always difficult, especially when we don't always agree as to what exactly is expected.

Nevertheless, we simplified things a bit and came up with 6 online stores which we consider the best.

Best Toy Stores Online #1

Amazon.com

OK, Amazon is not strictly a dedicated online toy store, but it definitely has an enormous selection of educational toys. What we particularly like about this online store is the ease with which you can search and find almost anything you want.  Worldwide Amazon is probably best known for the suggested related items you may also find interesting.

2 Interesting features of Amazon which makes this one of our top online toy stores are:

  1. the recommendations by other users of the same product. You clearly do get the odd negative user, but generally, reading one or more of the comments give you a pretty good idea of the product features
  2. suggested frequently bought together items... even if you don't buy all of these, it's usually time well spent just to check out these suggested items.

Toys R Us

Considered the king of toy stores, their online shopping website is every bit in keeping with their real world image. The site is conveniently broken up into sections like boy toys, girl toys, learning toys, outdoor toys, games and puzzles, coolest rides around, etc.

You can further narrow your search by criteria such as age, gender, category and even price. It gets even better since you are able to buy these toys at a discounted rate and have them shipped straight to your doorstep and that too free of cost. And if you like to work with a certain brand, the site gives you the option of seeing all the products of that particular manufacturer.

If you are a stranger then the 'what's new' tab will also make life much simpler. In short the site takes away all the problems of buying toys from a real world store and all the while retaining the charm of shopping for the kids.

Fat Brain Toys

This one is another popular online toy store and carries toys of almost all the big names in the toy arena. Right from Insect Lore to Thames & Kosmos, the site has it all. The site boasts of 'thousands of quality toys that entertain and educate' and serves this motto well.

There are several toy categories that one can choose from and this does help to narrow down your search. Some of the sections you can choose from are active toys, imaginative play, outdoor toys, plush, puzzles, travel toys and much more.

Of course there is also the option of shopping by age and this does help make things easier, especially for those who are looking for toys without choking hazards.

The site offers several payment options and you can even use your PayPal account if you like. It definitely seems like the wise and safe way to shop as opposed to real time stores.

All Aboard Toys

Some of the most hard to find toys are available here and herein lies the Unique Selling Proposition (USP) of this site. The site is divided according to characters and right from Thomas Engine to Spiderman, you will find it all here.

You can choose to buy according to category too and here you will find the toys sorted out in an easy to follow alphabetical format. Right from clothing, costumes, DVD, party supplies to even toys under the $10 mark, you can search it all. The site also offers free shipping in cases where the order exceeds $69.

The Red Tag sale offered by a site is a must see, since it allows you a discount of up to 75% on some leading toy brands. The site does come across as a great way to save money and yet avoid the hassle of running from store to store comparing prices.

Kazoo Toys

Rated as the number 1 toy store in USA, the site does have its fair share of goodies to offer to the online shopper. One can choose to go through the toys on offer by either selecting the toys according to age, or brand or even category.

All the toys come with a picture and this does allow one the ease of checking out the toy fully before purchasing it. This is a huge advantage since in real time toy stores one cannot open the sealed box to see how the toy looks like.

The site also has holiday specials and Halloween costumes to offer. There is a 20% discount offered on 'spooky sales' and there are some 'special toy offers' that can save you some money too. The site also provides you with an option to track your order so that you know exactly what its status is.

Back to Basics

The site is a Scholastic toys venture and therefore a delight for those looking to buy toys that help the kids in their learning process too. You can shop according to an age selection as well as a category choice.

There are toys that are known for their awards and one could look into this section specifically if one so desired. There is a digital catalogue, a gift finder, deals for the day and even a 'now on sale' section for those who are working with a budget in mind.

There is free shipping for orders above $99, but do keep in mind that the size of the toy will come into play here. The site also offers options in the field of gift finders; wish list and gift certificates, which makes shopping on the site a delightful experience.


Nowadays finding any specific product is almost a no-brainer. Regardless of where you stay, the internet makes finding and buying the best almost child's play. In our minds, what we've listed above are probably the best toy stores online which would make that buying experience real easy.
