We humbly thank the people of Galveston for voting us Best Downtown Store 2019!
EDUCATION MEETS INSPIRATION
Not every toy is made equal, and as much fun as we have, we take our choice of toys very seriously. At Play on the Strand you’ll find a classic meets modern selection of only the best in fun and engaging toys. Many of our toys are award winning standouts in the industry that promise to entertain, encourage and educate. There’s nothing wrong with a child building their imagination by playing pretend with a doll or action figure, and even the occasional video game can be a great way to pass the time, but when you see your child open a Hoberman sphere for the first time, or desperately try to catch a ball with a kendama, you see the difference a truly great toy can make! Come to Play on the Strand to find all of the best and most unique toys available.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Play of the Strand is a very fun place for kids and adults to look at and play with toys. The owner and staff are amazingly hospitable. Such a level of customer attention so refreshing. I’m very happy that we stopped in and we absolutely love the purchases we made. Our family would recommend this store to all kids 0 – 99 years old!
What a fun little store on the Strand! Most of the shopping down there is all about the same with shells and cheap t-shirts, but not this store. It had unique toys and the staff was so fun. They encourage our kids to try everything and even played with them. In the back they have old arcade games and a place to sit and rest.
The owner of this store is so nice and personable. Had a great time looking around as well as playing with some of the toys. They have cool arcade games in the back that you can play too! Such a great place to buy gifts and explore. Also great for teachers needing sensory items and fidget toys. Would highly recommend!!!
