These items are a throwback to the innocence and tech-free life that used to be an inherent part of childhood. The shop is also well-stocked with the kissing cousin of toys — candy. So take the kids/grandkids/cousins out for a nostalgia-rich afternoon filled with the same presents and treats you enjoyed as a child before walking home, uphill, in the snow.
