Shananigans Toy Shop

Wyndhurst Village, 5004-B Lawndale Ave., (410) 532-8384,

So much toy shopping these days entails a trip to a suburban big-box for a quick troll through the sad, unbought licensed figures (Prince of Persia, anyone?) and endless ranks of paramilitary plastic. Not that Roland Park’s Shananigans doesn’t sell a lot of the same mass-market toys the big boxes do, but its intimate space, homey vibe, and curatorial feel does give you the sense that someone took the time to pick each particular toy (many of them boutique items you won’t find elsewhere) just so your kid can, in turn, pick it special to take home. That’s an increasingly rare thing.
