The museum gift shop has a wide selections of children's toys.  We think it is important that children be able to pick out a special treat to remember their visit, without straining the wallet of the adult who is accompanying them or wiping out their own savings.  Therefore we carry lots of items under $5 or $10.  We also have some more expensive gifts, to mark more special occasions like Birthdays or Christmas.  We suggest:

  • Old fashioned candy
  • Nostalgic toys  such as wooden tops & vehicles, harmonicas, potatoe guns or diving submarines
  • Dover activity books and paper dolls
  • Stuffed animals and zipper pulls representing local wildlife
  • Folkmanis finger and hand puppets
  • Craft kits and toys that inspire creative play
  • Tumbled gemstones, fossils, break-your-own geodes or stamp packs for the young collector 
  • Picture books and chapter books for young readers
