The Toy Jungle is as invigorating for adults as it is for children. Situated inside a quaint shipping container at The Krate at The Grove in Wesley Chapel, The Toy Jungle is brimming with an excellent selection of interactive gems to stimulate the mind and expand one’s creativity.
The Toy Jungle is a family-owned business 25 years in the making, originally located in Holiday, Florida. Owner Adam Smyk spent over 20 years in the US Navy; spending much of that time away from his family while on deployment. Upon returning from his numerous deployments, Adam needed to find a way to reconnect with his children. And Lego® sets were the answer.
A different king of play at The Toy Jungle
According to The Toy Jungle’s website, Adam would spend many hours upon his return helping his sons Daniel, James, and Andrew put together their building-block sets. It was a project that the boys could do independently, until they needed help from their father. So, each time, Adam slowly earned the trust of his children again.
The Toy Jungle is a unique, locally-owned toy store that strives to provide building block sets, Lego® related products, STEM toys, and electronic-free parties and events to local families in a way that will help families spend time together while also encouraging them to discover their creativity.
Here you’ll find architectural building sets, car sets, cool mini figures, STEM toys, and so much more. It’s a portal to discover, and it’s totally screen-free. Follow the Toy Jungle on Instagram to keep up with the latest products, or visit their website.
