I am a huge proponent of age-appropriate toys and toys that develop creativity and imagination in a child.Â In my opinion, a four-year old child shouldnâ€™t be getting the daily drill session on flashcards, forced to play an instrument because the parent wants a prodigy in the family, or have the goal of being bilingual by the age of six.Â Kids have a lifetime of learning but only a short window of opportunity to be kids when they can learn to socialize, play and use those amazing imaginations.
The Treehouse in the Glen is a wonderful toy store in Willow Glen that specializes in woodenÂ and natural toys responsibly made in the USA, Europe and around the world.Â The Treehouse is Silicon Valleyâ€™s first and only GREEN certified toy store.
The Treehouse is delightfully different from most toy stores; you will see the most glorious selection of princess and fairy dress-up clothes with silk capes, and animal play clothes like the jellyfish, turtle, unicorn and butterflies.Â Kids LOVE to build things!Â The Treehouse is a paradise of blocks naturally made of wood; your youngster can build cities and skyscrapers until their heartâ€™s content.Â Organically made plush dolls and rocking horses; yarns made of hemp and beginning sewing/knitting kits.Â Beautiful cook sets and butterfly tea sets, wonderfully illustrated books and colorful puzzles are just a few of the unique toys that can be found inside the Treehouse.
The Treehouse in the Glen just expanded their store and added an art studio; they have a very creative gallery of classes for kids and adults, and open studio times where you can pop-in and create art and crafts without instruction.
It is a great store to have on the Avenue!Â Letâ€™s help build brighter imaginations and more creative kids â€¦ one toy at a time.
