We stumbled upon this place. It is wonderful! The staff was very nice and engaging. We did have time to take advantage of the upstairs playroom because we were short on time, but it sounded great. They are a non-profit store and filled with interactive toys. These are great well made toys not cheap wal-mart toys. There is something for... More

This is a BEAUTIFUL interactive toy store and play area for kids of all ages. The kids can throw "magic stones" in the koi pond, play in the outside playground, write on the chalkboards, play in sand area, or play upstairs with a Lego wall. There are so many creative areas for them to explore. My kids, 12 and 13,... More

We were there for Texas spring break 2017. We were walking around old town square and went one street off the beaten path and saw this place. They have lots of toys and neat finds, BUT THEN we saw a door way leading outside. THERE IS A FREE Playground there attached! They have an oversized chair so cute for pictures.... More

Twirl is a landmark for anyone in Taos with children. Although many of the toys are not made in Taos, we felt it important to add to our list. To say it is a toy store is understating it. They are a non profit that really focuses on improving the lives of children. Twirl hosts camps in the summer, after... More

I definitely recommend visiting Twirl in Taos, NM. It is a wonderful store full of games and toys for children and they have a play ground out back and a playroom upstairs. The prices are awesome and the employees are so kind and courteous and just all around wonderful.

This is the best hidden gem! We were shopping in the plaza and walked into a toy store with our one year old son. They have a great selection of toys and games. In their back yard is the coolest play ground I have ever seen. It has a sand pit, hobbit jungle gym, sensory boxes, a big jungle gym,... More

My wife and I really, really enjoyed shopping here and enjoying the impressive outdoor garden and play area in the late afternoon of Monday, 13 Jun 2016, while we were walking around Taos Plaza and surrounding areas.

We loved visiting this place two years ago and enjoyed it yesterday as well. We got to the location early and they opened their doors around 956am because they saw us outside :) our two 3 year olds loved the playground and played there for 35 minutes. Our nine year old enjoyed looking at the books and playing playground too!... More
