The Downtown Toy Company in the Cotton Exchange is your one stop this holiday season to get great gifts that kids of all ages as well as adults will enjoy!  Specializing in classic old fashioned style toys, educational toys and more the Downtown Toy Company is a family owned and operated business that “gets back to the basics” with toys that are simple yet incredibly fun.  The Downtown Toy Company fits right in with the nostalgic setting of the Cotton Exchange.  Those who have visited before will notice that the Downtown Toy Company has moved locations within the Cotton Exchange to a larger space that could accommodate their ever growing selection of toys.
The Downtown Toy Company is the place to take your kids this holiday season to show them how wonderful an actual toy shop can be, rather than just shelves stocked with video games.  You will watch their eyes light up with amazement at all of the toys which surround them.  Classic favorites that have stood the test of time and are still as entertaining as ever such as slinkies, silly putty, sidewalk chalk, rubber band shooters, cap guns, yo-yos and more await children and adults alike!  The selection includes old fashioned wooden toys like cars, trains, blocks, puzzles, and piggy banks.  They even have a bunch of old fashioned toys made right here in North Carolina.  They have classic toys that have been revamped like the new take on paper dolls which hold together magnetically.  The Downtown Toy Company has one of if not the largest selection of the very popular Melissa and Doug Toys in the Wilmington area.  Bring out the creativity in your kids with art supplies from the Downtown Toy Company.  They have tons of kid friendly art supplies like jumbo coloring pads, modeling clay, stamps and more so your kids can let their imagination run wild and express themselves with crafts, paintings and drawings which you will cherish for a lifetime! 
They also have an awesome line of “Green Toys” made in the USA out of recycled materials.  These eco friendly toys are well made and more durable than most toys made from new materials!  They have trucks, buses, planes, blocks and all kinds of fun “Green Toys” your kids will love.  
At the Downtown Toy Company they know that learning is easier when it’s fun which is why they offer a large selection of educational toys and games.  They have science project kits like building your own volcano or solar energy device, a lightening lab, and even a mini space theater that can turn your child’s ceiling into an accurate planetarium!
