Back in 1979, Brian opened a toy store in Cabin John Mall, with a special group of friends. The store thrived, and ten years later Carlos joined the staff as General Manager. Another eighteen years passed, and in 2007, Brian and his wife, Claire, decided to retire and sold the store to Tree Top Kids. After this flirtation with retirement, they found they missed the store, the customers and their friends. When the opportunity arose, they jumped at the chance to go back into business.
Again in July 2010, Brian and Carlos teamed up, this time as partners. They opened Toy Castle in the original toys...etc space, their aim was to recreate the exceptional selection of toys, games, crafts and books that made toys...etc so popular. Many of the wonderful staff from toys...etc returned to help with Toy Castle, that's why we say, "New Name....Familiar Faces"
