Disclosure: We were invited to the Grand Opening as media! We received gift bags for attending.
The store, which opened originally in 1931, had been on Lexington between 72nd and 73rd for 19 years before the new move to Lexington Avenue between 80th and 81st Streets. Ezra and Judy Ishayik are the owners of this small in size, but Big in fun shop. The Father-Daughter duo greeted everyone like family and made our first experience at the Mary Arnold Toy Store truly wonderful.
Everything you buy at the Mary Arnolds Toy store is Gift wrapped and free delivery is provided within a 20 block radius. I can only imagine how children must feel when they receive a hand wrapped gift personally delivered to their door.
Their new location is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. It's only right that you stop by if you're ever on the Upper East Side!
