The Black Toy Store

I remember strolling through KB Toystore and Toys R Us as a kid, pointing at all of the toys and games I wanted. That feeling of leaving the story with not a dayum thing but waking up on Christmas morning and seeing everything I wanted was EPIC. You can share that same experience with the children in your life by letting them scroll through The Black Toy Store and watch their faces light up as they point out curated books, games, and toys with characters who look like them.


Children as young as Pre-K can entertain themselves for hours with fun and interactive STEAM (that’s Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities and toys with them in mind. Check out these gift ideas from Mekamon, Innovant Tech, and Teni and Tayo by the creator of African Fairy and Superhero, Feyi Fay who you can learn more about when you click here.


With a new inanimate friend, a doll can help a little girl get lost in a world she creates that's all her own. With Beautiful Curly Me confidence-building dolls, rag dolls from Stepstiches, and custom crochet dolls from Tammy B Creations these toys will become your baby girl's bestie.
