Constantly looking for something to help keep the kids entertained while physically distancing? You’re certainly not alone there. Thankfully, the opening of Sunny Toys & Gifts on the northern end of Harding Avenue and 95th Street is one of Surfside’s sunniest 2020 stories. The many offerings at this quaint boutique toy store are sure to put a smile on any kid, and even a few adults.
The store is set to become one of Harding’s shopping hot spots for this coming holiday season. Step inside and you’ll find carefully organized toys of all shapes and sizes lining the walls anywhere you look. From plush toys and Disney princesses to the Avengers and Star Wars collections, this small store packs a major punch when it comes to selection. Merchandise is meticulously placed by category; and help, should you have any questions, is always nearby.
For owner and long-time toy fanatic Alon, opening in Surfside was a no brainer. The area is bustling with children and families. “I was trying to think of what is missing in the area…You have the schools here, so I think a toy store is a nice addition, and a place to create some memories.” A dad of two boys ages five and seven, Alon knows the importance of finding joy in a year of unprecedented circumstances all too well. “Now more than ever, consumers are really just looking to make the kids happy and give them that enjoyment.”
What kids and parents are looking for these days of course, varies greatly. Some opt for educational, do-it-yourself toys that emphasize problem solving and building knowledge, or books with cultural significance. For others, it’s all about the escapism and good ol’ fashioned fun. No matter the preference, the store caters to kids of all ages, so you’ll find toys and books for preschoolers all the way up to teens. Sunny also carries inflatables and pool items, Lego, and even an awesome selection of face masks.
One thing is for certain, as we approach a unique holiday season, the Town is grateful to have a new store like Sunny Toys & Gifts take up residence in Downtown Surfside. This mom & pop shop exemplifies what it means to be dedicated to your business and your community and even in 2020, that spirit shines brighter than ever.
