Every year at about this time, we make a trip to our favourite local toy store in Chinook Centre. In fact, we rarely make a family trip to the mall without stopping in at Discovery Hut, even if it’s just to browse. And it is almost never just to browse.

For younger kids, even the outside of the store is fun. There is a vibe at this place that draws you down the length of the mall. “Mom, we will meet you at Discovery Hut!”

Our kids (and us) have always loved Discovery Hut. You can always find a great selection of unique items and different variations of the toys kids love. I enjoy looking at the stuffies, novelty items and science toys you might not find in other stores. And even as our kids get older, they still like to check out the extensive games section for new release board and card games.

The staff are always amazing! Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They are happy to let you browse, and have thoughtful answers when you ask a question. And they have recently added online shopping, which is awesome!

For toy shopping, spending Christmas or birthday money, or finding cute gifts for kids and adults, Discovery Hut is the place to go!
