Local Toy Stores and Book Stores Offering Curbside Pick-Up and Delivery in Houston

In the absence of, well, everything during the Covid-19 pandemic, parents have tapped into all of their creative resources to keep kids entertained. Social media has been flooded with car parades, daily charts and schedules, online tours from around the world, fun art projects, and at-home science experiments in an effort to stifle the monotony of being at home all day every day, and it's been awesome! But sometimes you just need a new book to get lost in or a new toy to spark joy, which is why we've rounded up several local Houston book stores and toy stores that are offering curbside pick-up or delivery options to their customers. 

The next time you find yourself in need of something new for the kids, consider placing an online order or shopping over the phone or via FaceTime at one of these stores; not only will you be able to gift your child with something new, but you'll also be supporting a small business in the process.
