Established in 1991, and located in an uptown center of Houston's Galleria area, this is a high-end, one-of-a-kind specialty toy store with a committed and loyal customer base. There is a general manager and a supervisor in place to run the operations leaving the new owner to concentrate on learning the business and planning for the future.

The seller has been in the toy business for many years and bought the store in 2008. She decided to sell it so she can become more involved with her very active children. The buyer, a CPA, started her career in public accounting. She recently had a baby, which requires more flexibility. The seller will continue to work in the store for six months to help mentor the new owner. She will also attend toy markets in other cities with her to introduce her around the toy industry and to otherwise show her the ropes. Both the seller and buyer are excited about working together in the transition. SBA financing for the deal was provided by Allegiance Bank.

Peggy Tate listed and sold the business.
