Bean Head Toys

With a focus on educational books, games, and kits from companies like Playmobil and Thomas & Friends, the aisles of this Sandy Springs store (and its Buckhead sister) are strewn with building sets and dolls. Play areas, like the low-lying “tree house,” invite children to engage while Mom and Dad shop. There are party rooms to rent, and staff members are helpful but respectful of playtime. The only downside is trying to get your kid to leave.
