About

BRIEF HISTORY:

The Toy Soldier is one of the original shops of Olde Mistick Village, located in Mystic, CT. We have been in business since 1973 and are still family owned and operated.

WHAT MATTERS MOST TO US:

Customer service comes first and we want to help make your shopping experience stress free and one to remember. ¬†More importantly, we value the connections we’ve made with our customers over the years. Your family becomes our Toy Soldier family. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions. We’re here to help you and we take pride in knowing how to select the right gift for every individual. Themes are our specialty, whether animal or vehicle related, or anything else you have in mind.

Before you step into The Toy Soldier, you are greeted by Big Bear, who loves to pose for pictures with our customers. Once inside, you will find wooden floors; toys reminiscent of your childhood; and a multiple of themed areas to explore at your leisure.

As an old-fashioned (now hard to come by) toy store, we embrace quality toys and books that explore the imagination; encourage creativity and curiosity; and challenge the mind. Outdoor play, as well as family games and activities, are also top on our list.

Whether you connect with us over the phone, via e-mail, or in person, we look forward to serving you, and having you join our family of friends.
