We decided to come here based on the reviews previously posted and we were not disappointed. The store is amazing! They have the largest selection of board games I have ever seen, and they seem to know about each one of them. They even have open boxes you can try playing before you purchase. The staff will even recommend a... More

You can buy toys anywhere, but you can't get the toy matched to the child the way the owner of Goody Goody does it. He has been selling toys for so long that he's almost like the woman in the movie Chocolat: he knows what you need. You'll find things here you won't find anywhere else.

We were in the area canoeing and passed the toy store. My boys wanted to go in, as always and we have never been happier with taking a little side trip! Dan is the best toy store owner ever- he took my boys outside to try the toys and had them play with things inside the store too! We played... More

We went to Goody Goodys because we read that they had extensive board game selections. Well it's all that and more! Everything from Legos to Magic the Gathering cards, kids toys, infant toys and more! Dan, the owner is not afraid to take some of his time to show you how to play the board game you are interested in... More

We always try to stop in this game and toy store when in town, especially if we have visitors with us. The owner is usually there. He is knowledgeable, friendly, witty, and helpful. He gladly shows how any of the games are played by actually playing them with you. This is sooo much better than trying to figure it out... More
