Welcome to Sandys Gifts and Toys. We are a family ran gift store operated by me, Sandy and my son. I am a Diamond Paw Gund retailer and also specialize in Melissa and Doug toys. Before opening my store over 15 years ago I owned and operated two child care centers and have a B.A. in developmental child psychology from Indiana University and still my passion is child development which is why I carry these high quality and high educational items. I have over 1300 items listed and all the items listed are in stock and ship out immediately after payment has been made. We like to keep it fairly simple and honest to the buyer by always combining shipping and shipping anywhere in the world. I believe that just because you are selling an item on the internet does not mean you cannot give that internet customer the same great service as though they were walking into my store here in Hobart, In. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to earning your business for years to come.
