About Kaplan Toys

The Kaplan story began in 1951 when Leon and Renee Kaplan opened a toy store in Greensboro, North Carolina. Over time they expanded to several locations, and, in 1968, a new business emerged with a focus on providing quality toys and educational products for early childcare providers and schools. This new enterprise became known as Kaplan Early Learning Company.

An offshoot of Kaplan Early Learning Company, Kaplan Toys grew out of this desire to offer affordable, quality toys that enhance children’s learning. Since we believe that children are the future, we strive to offer products that provide children with opportunities to learn while playing. We specialize in non-violent products that encourage creative thinking and independence as well as mastery in core educational subjects. With a knowledgeable warehouse and customer service staff located in Lewisville, North Carolina, we are here to answer any questions you might have.

Kaplan Toys offers items both familiar and unique for children birth to 12 years. You will recognize many of our name brands like Little Tikes®, Melissa and Doug®, LEGO®, Crayola®, Learning Resources®, and Corolle® while discovering new favorites exclusive to Kaplan Toys.
