There’s nothing more stressful than receiving an invite to a kid’s birthday party and realizing you need to figure out a gift. If you don’t know what to get, it’s a quick way to go from excited to overwhelmed in the Target aisle, Googling is Barbie still relevant?? (the answer is yes, by the way). This is why I think the best thing you can do for your kids is to find a great local toy store.

If you’re trying to find a spot that will win you that coveted Mom/Dad/Aunt/Uncle/Cousin/Whatever of the Year award, let me tell you about a few of the best Kansas City toy stores
