About the Toy Boat

The Toy Boat brings together the very best that childhood has to offer, beautiful toys that inspire creative play, imagination and a sense of wonder. We support local artists and toy designers, filling our lives with handmade and classic toys, many of them designed exclusively for us and by us.

For 31 years we were a small independent toy store on the docks of Nantucket Island.  In 2019 we launched a new life and now sell our  treasures at speciality craft fairs, and school fundraisers.   Our 25 year website thetoyboat.com continues to thrive with many new handmade items.   We remember a time when toys did less, an imaginations did more.  Join in the fun!


Loren Brock is the sole creator, designer and operator of The Toy Boat and the toyboat.com
