About Us

We’re all grown up!

We’ve been the Neighbourhood Toy Store since 1980, and owner Lee Richmond has been here since the beginning. She’s watched those first young Kaboodles customers grow and now they’re bringing their little ones to shop!

We’ve grown over the years, adding three locations in Vancouver — Granville Island, Cambie Village, and West Broadway – and one in Downtown Victoria, which has now grown to be its own entity owned and operated by Teri Hustins. Although we’ve greatly expanded our toy selection, Kaboodles is still at heart all about kids and community!

Our Philosophy

At Kaboodles, we know that play is not only fun and important, but it’s also how children learn and grow.

We select our toys, games and puzzles with care, based on quality, play value, and “fun-quotient.” Our buyers are notorious at toy fairs and trade shows for behaving like 8 year olds… bouncing, jumping, squeezing, even flinging the toys about! A toy has to pass our Fun Test to be on Kaboodles’ shelves!

To be sure that Kaboodles caters to little people, you will find low, kid-friendly cash desks, fun displays, plenty of toys to try out, and kids washrooms too! Our awesome personal service and whimsical atmosphere make Kaboodles Toy Store a welcome place for kids and silly adults!

Our Community

Owner Lee Richmond is the past President of the Cambie Village BIA and a Director of the Point Grey Village BIA. We’re also members of the Canadian Toy Association and Retail BC.

In Vancouver we are proud to support…
