One of my favourite local shops is Pedagogy Toys. As a graduate of the Small Business program at Douglas College, owner Karen Smecher loves what she does and is committed to providing high quality toys and other kid items. She recently went on the hunt for a harmonica just for me and we are still toot-tooting our way around the house with our awesome green harmonica.
I was really impressed with her new exclusive to Pedagogy line of reusable lunch and snack bags lined with Tyvek! Ingenious! She’s also designed play items such as reversible felt belts that double as a super hero and a utility belt.
Karen is committed to sourcing locally as much as she can and her dedication shows. Her shop features a lovely play area for kids, toys of all sorts for ages ranging in newborn to 12+. Her prices are also great. I try hard to shop local as much as I can, and sometimes I find that retailers can make it hard to shop! Karen, however, makes it easy for me to support her.
