Mention "Mrs. Tiggy Winkles" to many parents around town, and you'll hear a great deal of chagrin and sentimentality for the toy store which closed in June 2011. That chagrin and sentimentality is for good reason: Mrs. Tiggy Winkles had nearly everything you could possibly want, making it nearly impossible to take a kid into the store without leaving with something. Kid's Center, which has been located on Swan Road for seemingly ages, is somewhat less magical, but it's still a great place to get something child-pleasing that's slightly more educational than the stuff the big boxes offer. You probably have missed this storefront a few times while driving by, but great contents are inside.
