Teich Toys & Books is the second venture of husband and wife team Allison Teich McGowan and JJ McGowan, inspired by their four year old son, Leo.
Founded in 2014 and located in the heart of New York City’s West Village on Abingdon Square, the toy store showcases a unique selection of eco-friendly, handmade, and classic toy items. Eye-catching window displays attract locals and visitors alike, while an interior life-sized wooden toy train allows children an imaginative and interactive experience.
A train depot houses the store’s extensive book selection and reading area, where weekly story hour brings together neighborhood kids and caretakers. Teich Toys & Books serves as a community hub of creativity, where adults can consciously shop for all of their baby and children’s gifting needs.
We also have a gift store just two blocks away! Go to Teich for more info.
