The Wooden Horse
In many ways, The Wooden Horse is exactly the same as it was when it opened in 1971: a homespun, neighborhood toy store packed with all the latest gadgets, games, and boredom-trumping trinkets. But some might call the Los Gatos shop old-fashioned—and that's just fine. Visitors step back in time when they step into The Wooden Horse, even if the inventory reflects the interests of modern-day kids. The award-winning store's products run the gamut from brain-bending puzzles and science toys to arts, crafts, and building materials for do-it-yourselfers. There are toys for toddlers, pre-schoolers, and even older kids, plus products the entire family can enjoy so they don't have to tie their shoelaces together just to remain close.
