Attention All Adults! Put your kid shoes on (Pro Keds, perhaps?) and pretend you are Jim Hawkins slogging through unchartered lands, on a quest to find buried treasures. Let your imagination go wild as you step inside a giant 3-D, treasure chest filled with all the toys you knew and loved as a child! The only map you’ll need is one of historic downtown Durango, as the booty is right on Main Avenue!
Betty Heuss, self-proclaimed “Instigator of Fun,” the pulse and owner of Durango Toy Depot, invites all grown-ups to experience a nostalgic walk down memory lane and for kids of all ages to come in and “be a kid.” Kids, you may even test-drive your newly-purchased puppet in the puppet theatre! It will be a pleasure to watch your child explore the wonders of pretend play with their new, old-school, kid-powered toy. There’s a strong possibility that the favorite electronic gadget may find its way under the bed, replaced by one that takes them to another world, as imaginative play takes over.
Featuring GREEN, eco-friendly, sustainable play toys, and specializing in toys NOT Seen on TV, Durango Toy Depot does its part to ensure that humans and nature can exist in productive harmony. For example, on the shelves, you may come across wooden toys made from sawdust leftover from the creation of new toys. Check out our suppliers of toys that come from recycled milk jugs, discarded wood, and overall sustainable toys then come in and see for yourself what green really means.
