Visit your local friendly pop-up toy shop!

Color Wheel Toys is a pop-up toy store, opening seasonally -we also stock art and craft supplies for all ages of creative people wanting to learn and try new projects.

This year we’re located in the heart of Nob Hill at

3418 Central Ave SE, just west of Carlisle.  

Color Wheel Toys is back for the second year, open from September 1 to December 31 with returning favorites and lots of new and interesting surprises. We have lots of toys that require imagination (and a few that require batteries, free on request with purchase!). Let us wrap up that creative birthday gift in complimentary gift map wrap, and take your time filling a $1 or $5 bag of collage items at our craft bar or choose the perfect LEGO, sold by the pound!
