Stellabella Toys

Toys that don’t require multiple batteries or power cords took a hit after the advent of the Xbox. But Stellabella has brought them back in the form of high-quality educational games and perennial favorites by Playmobil and Lego. Check out the back room for play groups where the staff leads community sing-alongs in the spirit of old-school, er, preschool, fun.
