If you call Northern Virginia you’re home, you should get to know some of the amazing small businesses in Falls Church. The Toy Nest is one of of our favorite local shops, and they’re about to turn one!


We see a future where kids borrow toys just like books at a library. Where families only buy their very favorites. Where kids of all income levels have access to the best play opportunities. And where we feed discovery, not waste.

The Toy Nest is a toy library, pre-loved toy store, indoor play space, and private event venue in Falls Church, Virginia.  

We invite children of all ages to play with and borrow from our ever-changing selection of toys, games and puzzles. With affordable drop-in and membership options, sales and buy-backs of pre-loved toys, baby gear rental, and gift cards, we’ve got something for everyone. And our private event space is perfect for your child’s next birthday party.

As a mom of four, I love the way that The Toy Nest is rethinking how we approach buying. We all know what a bummer it is to buy a great new toy for your little one and then they only play with it once! The Toy Nest pretty much eliminates that issue, and reduces waste! We’re super excited to be one of the small business they’re teaming up with to celebrate their Birthday! Plus we love supporting small businesses in falls church rather than those big box stores!

Celebrate with Us & Support Small Businesses in Falls Church!

Join us starting this Saturday, June 12th, for a giant scavenger hunt celebrating The Toy Nest’s first birthday!
The toy nest will be hiding five golden tickets inside of five golden eggs, hidden throughout Falls Church and Arlington. Four lucky finders will win a month of Toy Nest membership, and one grand prize winner will take home a year long membership! If you’re out shopping in one of the stores below, share your hunt photos with the hashtag #PricelessDiscovery for your chance to win prizes! Support small businesses in Falls Church and Arlington by taking part in our celebration!

Don’t forget to pop by the shop to visit us at our Boutique in Falls Church City! We are open in our NEW location. We’re right next to Panera and our Main Entrance is located on Pennsylvania Avenue! There’s even free parking in the garage right next door, so be sure to come by and say Hello!
