LA's Oldest Toy Store

It was October 1945.  Irvin “Kip” Kipper had just returned from WWII and after being a prisoner of war, he wanted a happier existence.  Kip’s Toyland was founded and has remained a favorite destination for generations of local families.  Located in the Original Farmers Market, Kip’s has also enjoyed visitors from around the globe.


At Kip’s, we don't carry toys that "plug in". We believe in the joy of play and interaction with others and being a kid no matter your age.  You’ll find a great selection of classic and retro toys; some that will make you think and others that will make you giggle. A trip down memory lane to revisit your childhood is a safe bet!


Kip’s is currently owned and operated by Don Kipper, Kip’s son.  Lily Kipper, Kip’s granddaughter, is the store Manager and Buyer.  We love what we do.  We’re guided by the same desire to provide the customer service and quality toys and games that has made Kip’s Toyland LA’s oldest toy store.
