Arvada, CO 80004

Jake’s Toy Box is another wonderful educational toy store with a truly touching story. The current owners purchased an already existing toy store in 2010 and renamed it Jake’s Toy Box in memory of their son whose life was cut short by a genetic disease. To honor him, Jake’s Toy Box was born as a place where children of all ages and all capabilities could come and play. Game nights, play time and fun special events make Jake’s Toy Box the city’s most beloved toy store.
