BEST TOY STORE - 2010
Wonderment is a local business run by three women—Lisa MacMartin, Zuzanne Fenner, and Joyce Olson-Kapell—who met while volunteering at their children's Waldorf School, an educational program that stresses creativity as a crucial factor in child development. You can see this influence throughout Wonderment, which is loaded with toys, games, and crafts that stress imagination and social interaction over video games and tweeting. Here you will find magic, chemistry, and knitting kits; wooden toys; adorable knitted animals; and other things to engage your child. The store also doubles as a classroom; be sure to check out the workshops throughout the year.
