WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT
Quite simply. we LOVE toys! Remember that favorite toy store from your childhood (most of us have one or two - mine was "Mr. Big's Toyland" and "Irving's Toys and Cards" in the Boston area) and how you felt visiting it with your parents or grandparents? Well, our goal is to help you recreate those memories and help your child create memories of their own! With this basic premise, we strive to reboot the retail toy business by actually mixing the best of the toy stores of yesteryear with the service, convenience and cool selection of toys we know you're looking for!
So, please come, browse either of our stores (online and in West Chester) and find cool, unique toys with cool, unique people helping you find them!
Although the name "Monkey Fish Toys" was born in 2013, the team behind the name has been in the toy business for over 15 years! Here's a brief company history:
Ok, so before we move-on, let's answer the question of how we came up with the name "Monkey Fish Toys" - I asked my daughter, four-years-old at the time, what would be a cool name or mascot for the toy store - she, for some reason, blurted out "monkey fish" (perhaps they talked about monkey fish in school that day!)... The name stuck because whenever anyone hears it they can't help but smile or giggle... the rest is history!
