Founded in 2006 by a lawyer and mother of three, kiddywampus is an interactive toy store that aims to provide a selection of the most unique toys, books, and accessories for arty, curious kids. This is a really fun store to explore, but you just want to buy everything. I don't think I've ever walked out empty-handed. The store is located just down the block from Stages Theatre and is fun to visit before or after a matinee. In fact, Hopkins Mainstreet is just fun to walk, so I try to plan extra time for a walk whenever we get there.
Birthday Parties at Kiddywampus
Starting at $329 for 10 kids, the store hosts fully-staffed birthday parties in its large party room. The store personnel help with everything from unloading and setup, projects & activities, to food service and pack up. Party themes and additional information can be found here.
Maker Space at Kiddywampus - Closed
The maker space was closed in 2017 to make room for a growing toy and game selection. You can still participate in staff-led projects at birthday parties and special events, which we try to add to our calendar.
