The Toy Nest ‘Hatching Soon’ in Falls Church

A new toyshop that allows customers to buy, sell and borrow lightly used toys is coming to Falls Church

The Toy Nest (98 N. Washington Street) is a self-proclaimed “toy library” and will offer second-hand toys, a play space and event venue, according to the Facebook page.

“We see a future where kids borrow toys just like books at a library,” according to the website.

There will be drop-in and membership fees associated with the store’s toy borrowing services and play area, according to the location’s owner Lisa Bourven, who added that she wants to keep the fees affordable for community members of all income levels.

As the location prepares to open, staff members are collecting unusual toys for toddlers, kids’ gardening tools, non-electric musical instruments and pretend adult toys like money or cash registers, along with dry erase boards, according to the website.

Bourven said the shop won’t open until February or later because the toyshop is awaiting permits from the City of Falls Church.

People who want to sell a toy can email the store and make an appointment to meet with the owners.
