Our Story

For 20 years Learning Express Toys has been your locally owned and operated toy store in the Triangle area. We  love being a part of such great North Carolina communities. It has been an honor to see families grow over the years and continue to come back. We’ve grown from 1 location to 4  and it’s all because of our great customers.

What makes us different? Our people. Yes, we have great customer service, complimentary personalization, and complimentary gift wrapping year round, but really it’s the people that make our store fun. From our team members to our customers, we encourage active learning through hands on play and in store experience. It’s not everyday you can go into a store and shoot a compound bow and arrows, throw light up footballs, play with magic sand, and ride around on scooters! Stop by and hang out with us. We’re here to make sure you have a great time and find an excellent gift for your next birthday party.

    My grandchild is going to be one year old, soon. What do you have available for her in your store?

    • lexpblogger on May 15, 2019 at 2:12 pm

      Hi Mike, congratulations! We have many great gift ideas for one year olds. The Fun Time Tractor encourages mobility through play, uses animal sounds and helps to increase fine motor skills. Children love picking up the animals and seeing it drive forward! The Takealong Shape Sorter features a soft, colorful case. One side has colorful cloth pictures that kids can flip, while the other side is a shape sorter for the plastic shapes that are included. This toy is great for fine motor skills! We hope you will stop by soon. Our wonderful staff would love to help you pick the perfect gift!

    Hi: Do you sell Playmobil people and Schleich animals? Thanks.

    • lexpblogger on July 8, 2012 at 8:56 pm

      Hey Susan, we do carry different series of the Playmobil mini figures. They come in blind packaging so you don’t know exactly which one you’re getting, but they are separated by boys and girls. They are really cool and the kids love to collect them. We also have several sets with cool characters in them.

      We don’t carry Schleich animals, but we do have a few toob sets from Safari.

      Thanks so much for your comment!

    Do you carry any Haba or Plan Toys? Also, do you carry Schleich Amimals, specifically the farm animals? Thanks.

    • lexpblogger on April 11, 2012 at 11:05 am

      Thanks for your comment! Unfortunately we don’t carry those items. We carry some wooden vehicles made by Hape that have been really popular. They’re made from bamboo. 🙂

    Do you have magnetic words?

    • lexpblogger on March 3, 2012 at 4:39 pm

      Hi, unfortunately we do not carry magnetic words but we do have magnetic wooden alphabet and magnetic wooden numbers kits from Melissa & Doug. Also, we have a great magnetic chalk & dry erase board set. This set comes with 36 magnetic pieces (letters and numbers), colored chalk, an eraser, and a dry erase pen. Thanks for your comment and we hope this helps!
