Our History in a Nutshell

Toy Chest Name TrainsThe Toy Chest at The Nutshell is an amazing addition to an already fabulous store!

In 2007, our very own customers who had enjoyed shopping at The Nutshell in Milton for over 30 years kept saying…. ”we want more and we need more – We want one stop shopping.”

We thought about this for a while and it ended up making a lot of sense. Educational and Specialty toys became a natural offshoot of our existing business of fine specialty clothing.  When the space became available to open a real toy store, rather than just have a few shelves of toys in our existing store – we created The Toy Chest at The Nutshell. 

We are one store conveniently located in the Milton Marketplace in East Milton Square. We have lots of free parking and plenty of knowledgeable staff to help you in any way.
