About Us

Welcome to the Toy Professor

The Toy Professor opened its doors in Summit, NJ in 2003 and now we are very excited to be able to bring our toy expertise to the cyber universe.  We quickly developed a reputation for having the best toys and the best service and we have done everything we can to bring the in store experience online. That's why ToyProfessor.com is your neighborhood toy store online.
  • You have access to the same hand picked and expertly chosen selection of awarding winning toys and really cool stuff.  This unique inventory is one of the key factors setting The Toy Professor apart.
  • Our age recommendations truly reflect our toy expertise.  We know the kids and we know the toys so we often alter manufacturers recommendations to what be believe is a better fit.
  • Our on line gift finder will help you narrow choices by age, gender and toy category.  And while all of our inventory is hand picked, the gift finder narrows this choice further to only the best of the best.  This includes what the Toy Professor thinks are the best gifts plus some of our fastest selling toys because we think sometimes our customers know what's best too.
  • We will gift wrap your items free of charge just like in the Summit store.  Who else does this online?
  • Have a question?  We are here to help just like in the Summit store.  Give us a call and we will do our best to answer questions about the toys we have or a toy you are looking for.  Our hours vary slightly but you can pretty much count on us being open 10am-5:30pm EST Mon-Sat.  The phone # is 908-918-1888.  If we are not there leave a message and someone will call you back as soon as possible.
And if your ever in the neighborhood we would love for you to stop by and find out first hand why The Toy Professor is such a special place.  It is bright and cheery, with lots of demonstration toys throughout but especially appreciated is a large play area in the back with kitchens, tents, dolls, vehicles and lots more where the kids can play.   That's why at The Toy Professor we never say "Don't Touch", we say "Play, Learn  & Explore"

The Toy Professor is lots of fun but we believe play is "serious business"  That is why we try to ensure a customer never leaves with a toy that is not appropriate for their intended recipient.  And to begin with we won't stock a toy that doesn't pass our play value evaluation.  That means a toy will perform as intended, is of fair quality and is reasonably priced for what it is and most importantly that the toy is engaging so that most kids won't abandon it minutes, hours, days or hopefully even months after receiving it.
