About Us

     "Once upon a time, there was a most unusual store..."
     The Toy Chest was opened in Hope, New Jersey… a small town with a rich history.  We opened the doors just about a year after the birth of our third child.  "Oh what a place it will be," we thought.  "A place that people will certainly come to see..."
     We’ll have toys of all kinds for all people, young and old.  We’ll buy, sell and barter them for fun.  We'll bring you back in time… a time when things were simpler, our days seemed longer, and the world was like a dream. 
     We’ll laugh and share joyous cheers when we are reunited with our old toys...  those we once carried in our arms on our way to the playground and in our coat pockets at school.
     It is our promise to you, our customers, that we’ll have what you thought you lost forever... because The Toy Chest is where your memories are.
