Store Statement 3/27/20 - (updated 11/20/20)

Brookside Toy & Science has built this website in response to the COVID-19 stay at home order.

We know it is not the same as coming in and seeing us and all the cool stuff,

but we are working to make it as current as possible.  We will continue to add products and information regularly. 

We have carefully curated this collection of our favorite educational toys, games, crafts and puzzles with the

current situation in mind.  Please note certain brands that we DO have in the store will not appear on our website

due to inventory levels and pricing (Lego & Calico Critters). Feel free to call us for the latest on what's in stock.


If there is something you know we usually have and would like to see here,

please email us at [email protected] and we will work to get it up as soon as possible.

Thank you for supporting a Kansas City local business!

Stay home & healthy ♥
