Children's Corner

We carry a variety of children's items, including books, toys, craft kits, teethers and more. Our children's book selection is particularly good, with books on different cultures (with a focus on cultures represented by minority communities in the area), California History appropriate for varying age groups, and what life was like for children in different eras. Toys represent animals found in the region, and toys and games children of decades past would have played with. Our baby items are Made in the USA of all natural, kid-friendly materials.
