Laugh’N’Learn toy store opened in July 2000. From day one we set ourselves very high standards of aiming to be one of the best toy stores in Canada. By the best we mean the best selection in the specialty toy market with the best service at competitive price. So far, according to our customers, we are accomplishing our goal with a great success.
As parents, we always felt that there wasn’t enough selection in the big department toy stores for quality educational toys. George has been teaching business for a long time and Veesha just finished working for a toy manufacturer when we made the decision to open our own specialty toy store.
Since we opened, we have been featured on Global Television several times as a destination store for unique and quality toys. Lorraine Mansbridge, Global reporter, quoted us as “a store with integrity.” We don’t sell any toy guns or any other toys that promote violence. We also don’t select any electronic games as we believe that, to a great degree, even if not violent they limit child’s imagination. For that reason you will find here a lot of manipulatives, board games, outdoor/activity toys, crafts, and toys that stimulate creativity, imagination, and logical thinking skills.
At Laugh’N’Learn you will find the biggest wooden toy selection in Alberta and one of the biggest in Canada. Some of the most beautiful wooden toy lines come from Greece (KOUVALIAS), Germany (LORENZ), and from Thailand (VOILA). These toys have unique designs, beautiful colors and amazing finish which qualifies them to become heirloom pieces. All toys brought to our store are carefully selected to deliver quality entertainment, fun and educational value. Our toys come from all over the world including Europe, Asia and Australia. Among over 12,000 items we carry, many represent worldly recognized brands such as: BRIO, LAMAZE, CHICCO, THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE, GROOVY GIRLS, MADELINE, ROKENBOK, REVELL MODELS, TY, and many, many more.
We are very grateful to our customers for their continuous support and loyalty which makes us successful. We feel that through our continuous support of many local events and charities, we are able to give back and to show our appreciation. We also provide 10% discount for schools, hospitals, daycares, playschools, and early intervention programs. We are also involved in helping on-going charities such as WIN HOUSE and the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.
