The Toy Box began in Asheville IN 1987 with current owner Gary Green becoming “toy-maker” in residence in 1993. If you grew up in Asheville, you played at the Toy Box and when you bring your kids, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find not much has changed! The Toy Box is childhood as you remember it. Unplugged.

The Toy Box carries the toys you love like Playmobil, Melissa and Doug, Ravensburger, Corolle and Thomas the Tank Engine. We carry toys for infants to age 12, including puzzles, games, books, outdoor toys, imaginative play toys, educational toys, bath toys and much more.


“WHHHEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! I went ricocheting around the store looking at all the fun things.  Things to make, things to play, things to cuddle, things to explore…  Super friendly, honestly happy folks working there, and they clearly care about the store and their customers”. YELP! Online Review
