Educational Toys For Kids


PLAY IS NOT JUST THE OPPOSITE OF WORK. IT is a creative process that fosters learning and personal growth for children and adults.


At Fair Day's Play, we believe that toys and games are learning tools that enhance the quality of life for children as well as adults. Fair Day's Play owner Lisa Ripkin applies her background in child psychology, child care, and motherhood to pick out toys with exceptional educational value for all ages.  She works with customers to find toys that match their interests and values, and can special order toys for you if you cannot find what you need in the store.

We sell toys, board games, jigsaw puzzles, science kits, building sets, arts and crafts kits and more!
