Small business spotlight: pick up some wacky toys at Archie McPhee

May 16 2020, 12:28 pm

Get the kids off the iPad and into some offline toys from Archie McPhee.

If your kids have been behaving well during homeschooling or haven’t complained too much about not being able to see their friends in the past few weeks, surprise them with a gift from one of Seattle’s most iconic toy stores.

The store began in 1983, when Mark McPhee, Archie’s great-nephew-in-law, started supplying gifts and toys to Seattlites. The shop began out of McPhee’s garage, where he sold knick-knacks and other random items. Those in his neighborhood couldn’t get enough of his wacky shop, which prompted him to open up a real storefront in the big city of Seattle.

Even if you don’t know what kind of toy you’re searching for, you’re sure to find something. From strange pins to racing possums and other knickknacks, Archie McPhee truly has it all.
