Fat Brain Toys - Details

  • Top of Page

    About Fat Brain Toys

    There are two types of toys in this world. Those that make a child think, and those that don't. Our philosophy is simple - so simple in fact that we made it our company tag line: Smarter Toys = Smarter Kids.

    Lincoln Logs don't have a single computer chip embedded inside them. They have no flashing lights. Heck, they don't even make noise! But the same Lincoln Logs that inspired children back in 1916 encourage children to think freely and build creatively nearly a century later. Lincoln Logs is but one example of a toy that fits the Fat Brain Toys criteria for being a "smarter toy". In our store you will find over 700 unique toys, games, and gifts that will challenge a child's imagination - and many that will challenge an adult's too!

    In addition to our website, we offer these toys in print catalog, advise you over the phone or email of the best choices for a particular child, and then get it out the door and into your hands faster than you would expect. Each order is carefully packed and shipped from our offices in the heartland of America - Elkhorn, Nebraska. We're a small, family owned and operated business - so we take great pride in our ability to offer exceptional service to each and every customer. We hope to count you among our customers soon!
