About Us

For generations, Kansas City children have called Brookside Toy & Science “the best toy store ever.”  Staffed by the most fun and helpful toy experts in town, this family favorite is stocked to the ceiling with classic toys, books and games that never grow old – plus today’s newest, most creative toys, dolls, games and craft kits.

We are your science headquarters.  Visit the store to see our amazing inventory: science kits, beakers, test tubes, chemicals, bug and butterfly collecting supplies, rocks, skeletons, skulls, alligator heads, and items you’ve never imagined!

Come in and see why the “best toy store ever” keeps getting better and better.
