Although she was inspired by her background in elementary education, Manning said she strives to provide something for everyone in her stores. Got Toys features hard-to-find, unique items for children and adults, including products from lines that only sell to specialty stores, she said.
“A lot of people bring their kids in because their kids have never been in a neighborhood toy store,” Manning said, noting that the experience also takes parents and grandparents to a nostalgic place. “We have classic toys that they remember, plus the new, funky things kids like as well.”
According to Manning, each location of Got Toys has a different appeal to serve its unique audience. In New Braunfels guests are greeted by a bright and colorful environment that includes some larger items not found in the other two stores, which cater largely to tourists.
