Nico & Zoe Toys
Nico & Zoe is two experienced moms, with retail and internet experience, selling uncommon and artisan made high quality toys for the urban kid, age birth to six. Our inspiration is our children. As parents, we are always on the lookout for quality, locally made, funky toys. And, we don’t want them to cost too much. Most European wood toys we find are just too expensive. Handmade toys are difficult to find, no one store specializes. At Nico & Zoe, our aim is to select toys that are both uncommon and a good value. We also specifically support local, small businesses like us by finding toys that are designed, if not made, in the US. Our goal is simple: Offer high quality, small production, toys, all at one location.
