The Curious Bear Toy and Book Shop is a locally-owned modern children's toy and book shop located in the tiny but mighty Tacoma suburb of Fircrest, Washington.

Our mission is to provide children and parents alike a delightful and enjoyable place to explore. You'll find toys, puzzles, books, and gifts of all kinds and price ranges for all ages.

We take great care and pride at The Curious Bear in choosing the products we carry. You'll find high quality books that excite, puzzles that challenge, games that inspire, STEM and Montessori inspired toys and...all the latest trends including squishy poop and rocket launchers. 

The Curious Bear Toy & Book Shop is the sister shop to next door neighbor, Paper Luxe. Both stores are run by mother-daughter duo Jennifer Luna and Laurie Hicks.
