Toys with love opened in Far Hills, NJ in March, 1986. We occupied 1000 square feet in The Mall at Far Hills. Six months later we expanded to 3000 square feet. In 1997 we opened a second store in Chester, NJ, nine miles away.In 2004 we closed the Far Hills store to concentrate exclusively on Chester. Chester is located in a growing area of affluent young families. The potential here has enabled us to reach many more customers. They come primarily from Morris, Somerset and Hunterdon counties. We have been successful because we have chosen only the best the toy market has to offer. We also look to the gift, educational and apparel markets to find those special items that are so important to set us apart.
We are here to help you find just the right gift. Give us a try, I promise you won’t be
disappointed. ~ Gail and Stacey
