We want kids to come into our store, touch and play with toys everywhere, and make memories! We believe what we’re hearing – that Susan’s Toy Shop is the best toy shop in Nebraska! Educational activities, crafts, science and building projects, and toys you won’t find very many places. Quality. Educational. And, of course, fun!!!
We also invite you to come visit our used bookstore. History, Biographies, fiction, children, mysteries, westerns, cookbooks, sports, religious books, and more. Join Susan’s Used Bookstore Club for $50/year per family. You can use the used bookstore as your personal library. We also have a desire to get books into as many homes throughout our area as possible. We believe that a book given in the daytime may change a life when read at midnight.

You’ll have to pick some favorite candy while you’re here – packaged into fun bags and candy jars. Gummi dinosaurs, butterflies, centipedes, bookworms, flowers, airplanes.
