Looking to outfit a play room or area for your child? We offer everything you need, from play room accessories to arts and craft supplies.

At Kaplan Toys, our goal is to bring you a wealth of educational toys that make a child want to learn more, with products that help kids develop manual dexterity and hand-eye coordination. We have a great selection of classic toys that you may remember from your own childhood, toys that will never go out of style.

In the first few months of life, a baby will begin to be aware of it's surroundings. Nearby sights and sounds are interesting and a baby will reach out and grasp anything it can. Bright colors, unusual textures and different sounds will stimulate any baby and so these are the key features of toys. As time passes the baby will start moving around and enjoy playing and experimenting with toys. Pressing buttons and toys which can be pushed will help them to focus, develop coordination and begin to balance. Activity centers and push-along toys help the transition from the baby to toddler. Toddlers are curious and inquistive and will begin to explore their surrounding and are also learning to speak. They have increased control over hand and finger movement and the hand to eye coordination will have developed. Soft books with pop-out or pull-out will help increase dexterity while allowing them to identify objects and characters, the first step to reading.

Kids will start to take note of adults around them - watching what they do and want to be like them. Everyday tasks which might prove ordinary to an adult can provide hours of fun to a child, so cookers, keys, musical equipment and vehicles are the name of the game. Our children's toys have been carefully chosen and organized by age groups so it's easy to choose a developmentally appropriate product. We offer products for pretend play and dress-up adventures, cuddly toys that kids love to snuggle, a woodshop section, ride-on and riding toys, blocks, outdoor toys, art and craft supplies, toys geared toward infants, play room and play area accesories, and other educational toys that help kids build their brain power.

The Kaplan story began in 1951 when Leon and Renee Kaplan (Mr. and Mrs. K) opened a toy store in Greensboro, North Carolina. They expanded the business in 1952 by opening a second store in Winston Salem, North Carolina and then multiple locations in late 1950 and early 1960. In 1968, Kaplan School Supply was founded which affirmed their commitment to children by introducing toys that teach.

For over 35 years the Kaplan name has been synonymous with children and providing products that promote learning while playing. The company has continued to be a strong leader in the field of early care and education. We know that children are our future and we provide products that enhance creativity, explore learning, and encourage independence.
