Martha and Harry Burrows opened Timeless Toys in 1994, after scoping out many other neighborhoods for the perfect place to settle. Why Lincoln Square? Martha replies, "We live here, and we know that people are always looking for classic toys—especially people in the city, whose children are bombarded with so much."
A paradise for the young-at-heart, Timeless Toys offers opportunities to browse, play and lose track of time. You'll stumble upon gifts you can’t find elsewhere: handcrafted rocking horses and dollhouses, international toys and stocking stuffers, and one-of-a-kind handmade dolls. It also carries puppets, games and puzzles, blocks for toddlers, toys for infants and even items for teens. Add to that fantasy figurines, model kits, castle sets, science toys and art and crafts, and you've got something for every under-18er on your list…and then some, according to Martha, who says it's not unusual to find people shopping for adults.
Expect above-par customer service; the staff can always lead customers to age-appropriate items.
