Kids Ink has been one of the go-to children’s books and toy stores in Indianapolis for nearly 35 years. This adorable shop is perfectly situated in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood area. Kids Ink is home to the famous Where’s Waldo challenge every summer, special story times, author book signings and even more special activities.
Don’t wait for Neighborhood Toy Store Day to support this local business, there’s a lot to buy in here.
Inside the store you’ll find the perfect trinkets for stocking stuffers and rewards. There’s also a very large book collection for children and young adult readers. At the back of the store you’ll see a small selection of books for parents and other adults.
There are toys perfect for gifts from the typical brands carried by independent toy stores: Playmobil, Brio and others. Your kids will be begging for quarters when they hit the dinosaur section. This is where they’ll stumble across a gum-ball machine full of beautiful, colorful polished rocks.
While you’re in the area, your whole family will love a filling meal from the Illinois Street Food Emporium. Kids eat free on Fridays at Illinois Street Food Emporium. If you’re celebrating something, you can get one of the best cupcakes in Indy right next door. Everyone loves ice cream from Graeter’s.
