The Learning Tree

Readers' Pick

Forget Tickle Me Elmo. Forget Barbie. Forget all that trashy junk advertised along with Count Chocula cereal and Chuck E. Cheese’s during whatever passes for Saturday morning cartoons nowadays. The Learning Tree offers a refreshingly classic approach to heartfelt, well-made and lasting toys that parents are actually excited to buy for their children. And that doesn’t mean boring-check out almost anything made by Melissa & Doug, or just plop down in the plush toys section, and you’re sure to find the next perfect gift. The Learning Tree: Southgate Mall; 543-0101;
