About Us

Toy Sense started in 2002 when Darryl Boyer told his son Mateyko he was opening a new store.  It was going to be an Auto/Tool store but out of the mouth of a 5 year old was “Is it going to be a Toy Store?”  Not to disappoint his son, he brought in a few toys.  At the same time the local toy store closed and there was a demand for quality toys.  A few toys turned into a row.  A row of toys turned into 2.  Now our toy store has grown to 4,500 sq. feet with a warehouse of 7,000 sq. feet.  The building is called Auto/Tool/Toy Sense and we sell a full line of auto parts, hand and air tools as well as a great selection of Toys.

Our goal is to provide our customers with a fun place to shop for quality educational toys.  We strive for excellent customer service and are always looking for ways to improve.  We consider ourselves Thunder Bay's local toy experts.

We are proud members of the Good Toy Group and The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA)
