About Us

Hi! I'm Allison, a life-long New Yorker, mother, and toy store proprietress.

In 2014, when my son was 3 years old, I opened Teich Toys & Books on Hudson St in the West Village, NYC. As a parent and an experienced retailer, I felt my neighborhood could use a curated children's toy store. For 6 years we enjoyed being the go-to shop for the best games, toys, puzzles and more. Not only did we serve the families of our community, but we enjoyed visitors from all over the world. 

In the summer of 2020, like so many other small businesses around New York City, we were forced to permanently close our doors. It was a heartbreaking experience, but I am grateful for the time we had there, and humbled by the outpouring of support I have received from our wonderful customers and community members. 

I have decided to continue Teich Toys online and draw upon my many years helping people finding truly special gifts for the children in their lives.

I hope you'll take a look through our website and get inspired to send someone a special gift. We offer a flat rate $10 shipping throughout the Continental US. 

Thanks for supporting small business!
