Children’s Gift Shop has been in Northfield 27 years, 17 of them in the current location, which was recently remodeled and expanded. As a former teacher, owner Markie Carlson carries only well-designed and safe toys that she has hand-selected from trusted sources. Markie is committed to providing children with learning through play with a focus on what the child can do, rather than what the toy can do.
Unlike online warehouses or big box stores, Children’s Gift Shop customizes inventory to fit our specific community needs. They are seasoned toy experts with real hands-on experience and knowledge to share about their toys, games, science kits, books, arts, crafts, and more.
Children’s Gift Shop offers classic as well as the newest toys for children of all ages, from birth to teens. They source products from both big-brand manufacturers and small entrepreneurial companies, which provides the opportunity to introduce children to a world of toys that often can’t be found elsewhere.
Children’s Gift Shop is a family-owned, community friendly business that has built a reputation as honest, trustworthy, and responsive. As a local business they make holiday toy and gift shopping easier, by offering a personalized approach and outstanding customer service that includes shipping and free gift wrapping! Visit them in the Northfield Village Center (behind Subway) at 310 Happ Road or give them a call at (847) 441-5975.
