About Us

Skeeter's Toybox is a new specialty toy retailer located in downtown Putnam, Connecticut.  We are located in the old Montgomery Ward building in the former location of Arts & Framing / Socher Art Gallery.  We opened in mid-October of 2018, with a vision of bringing unplugged toys to Main Street.  Only a few of our toys need batteries and even fewer come with lights and sounds.  We encourage creative, unstructured, open-ended play, where children are encouraged to use their imaginations without relying on the latest licensed characters. 

Our lower level contains most of our 0-3 year old toys and includes a modest selection of classic hardcover children's books.  Our upper level loft has activities for children ages 5 and up, including games, puzzles, craft kits, science kits, Breyer horses, and handpainted figurines by Papo.  Come on down and see what we have!  If there is something you need that you can't find, let us know.

Our web store contains a good sampling of the many more items to be found at our Brick and Mortar store.  We can also ship many items as needed.
