Founded in Ely, Minnesota, we were super excited to learn that Legacy Toys had migrated south to the Twin Cities. Specifically, it has stores in three Twin Cities locations:
Of course, you can also shop online. Legacy explains that it is "devoted to helping kids and their families ignite their imagination through exploration and play," and therefore, they encourage interactive play while shopping. Bring along the kids to help decide what toys to bring home, or just go by yourselves and play.
What We Love About Legacy Toys:
We love this quote from their website and think it sums up everything we love about local businesses in general:
"Our Legacy is not defined by financial success or possessions. We want to invest our time and energy into something priceless.
Our mission is to help nurture our future leaders, inventors and creative thinkers. We want to inspire the next generation to lead meaningful, happy and productive lives, because we know that making the world a better place for our children is the greatest legacy we can leave."
Local businesses, like Legacy Toys, are made up of our neighbors who want to make our area their home.
