A2Z Science & Learning Store
57 King St.
In deciding what to carry at the store, the folks at A2Z look “for things that are educational in a traditional sense but are also open-ended” and that will hold kids’ interest for the long haul, says co-owner Jack Finn. Hot this year: “skill toys” like kendama (think of the classic wooden cup and ball-catching toy), all manner of radio-controlled toys and, of course,
A2Z’s signature item, the yo-yo (Finn carries his own on his belt, so he never misses a chance to squeeze in some impromptu yo-yoing).
