The visit we took to Lainie's Way, a great toys and game store, was absolutely splendid. We saw numerous fun and educational games. The staff there, Lainie and Katie, were very kind and explained the games and things they sell. What makes them different from many other game stores is that they explain and demonstrate the games before they are bought. This is a special store to buy games and toys, also because they have things for kids of all ages and interests.

Lainie says customer feedback and what people learn from their games influence what they sell in the store.

Two of our favorite games were Stomple, a marble game, and Laser Maze, a logic game. Lainie told us about how she wanted to help people in this sort of fun way with her business. Overall, the visit was a great experience for us.
