Grandma's Toy Box, open since April, 2008, invites you to have a pleasant shopping experience when buying gifts for the children in your life. This unique store specializes in educational toys, games and puzzles for all ages, but especially for young children.
Grandma's Toy Box is owned and operated by Kathy Holperin, a retired Occupational Therapist and a life-long resident of Eagle River. Kathy chooses high quality items which have an educational and play value for children. She is able to offer child development advice and assure that your gift will be age-appropriate AND appreciated.
Challenging games, educational toys, puzzles, craft & art kits, construction toys, books, stuffed animals & puppets, novelties and outdoor toys are the primary offerings at the store, but you'll also find those one-of-a-kind items that will become your family's heirloom. Some small furniture, such as stools, table and chair sets, clothing racks and room decor add to the classic toys and games. Many of these items are made by local craftspeople.
Grandma's Toy Box also features the best little rock and mineral shop in Northern Wisconsin. Together with her brother, Dave Bauer and her sister, Kris Brill who also live in the Eagle River area, Kathy has moved "The Rock Shop" downtown to her store. "The Rock Shop" was just east of Eagle River and was owned by their parents, Dick & Rose Bauer, since 1950. Now customers can again browse through and select beautiful natural wonders such as amethyst, geodes, Brazilian agates, petrified wood, fossils, Lake Superior agates, fool's gold and much more.
