Why supply your kids with the usual fare from Toys “R” Us when you live in a city with the Lincoln Square neighborhood’s Timeless Toys? Open since 1993, in toy industry terms, Timeless offers a selection that is more “home cooking” than most other Chicago stores’ McDonald’s-variety approach, with a solid selection of educational and wooden toys, including staff picks from the American Specialty Toy Retailers Association selections. Cozy, welcoming, and constantly jam-packed full of kids of all ages, they occasionally have events scheduled such as game demos and face painting.
