Kate, August 17, 2018

Great service!

Bethany, August 9, 2018

The staff had no problem receiving and processing the Nift Gift, which was appreciated.

Laura, July 31, 2018

Great advice for age-appropriate toys & books. Courteous clerks went extra mile finding a chair for this disabled customer so I could sit while winnowing through a selection of books. Both items gift-wrapped and be-ribboned - for free! - and price-tags thoughtfully removed prior to wrapping. Prepare to spend more time than planned, as your inner child will be tempted to try out their puppets! or trains! before alighting back to earth and focussing once more on the actual kid you're shopping for.

Lynn, July 30, 2018

Mostly for very young kids.

Larry, July 22, 2018

The folks at Boing were very helpful and they made it easy to use my Nift card!

Zoe, July 11, 2018

Lots of cute stuff to choose from. A little pricey to pay full price - I was very happy to have my Nift.

Eileen, June 24, 2018

I visit boing often with my grandchildren , they love it and it is part of our routine when they come to visit .

Veronica, June 22, 2018

Boing has the most wonderful toys- everything of very high quality, many learning toys. The staff there are very helpful with recommendations- taking time and care to ask about the child's age and interests before suggesting items. Boing carries items of a wide price range, so I've always been able to find something just right for the child as well as my budget. It's a small shop, but so well organized and filled with an excellent variety. I hope Boing stays in our neighborhood for a long time!!

Allison, June 21, 2018

I love this gift. I enjoyed putting it towards an extra special gift for my son. Plus it got me in the store where I bought presents for a few upcoming parties!
