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 toy boxes with handmade and classic toys, many of them designed exclusively for us and inspired by our ocean home. Visiting Nantucket Island?

We are a small independent toy store that got our start close to 30 years ago, on the docks of Nantucket Island, nestled between the busy harbor and a wind-blown fairy garden. We love the ocean, creative play and kids of all ages. We have been known to entertain pirates, fairies, mermaids, puppeteers, jugglers, even a fire eater or two. We remember a time when toys did less, so that kids imaginations did more. We believe in hand-made, creative toys and take great pride in our collection of whimsical, well built playthings. Come along for the ride and play for a while.
