Ridge Road Station is a sensory delight for children of all ages. A place where children from 1 to 101 enjoy the most wonderful trains, toys, gifts, and everything Christmas. With 30,000-square-feet of space, it is the largest independent toy and Christmas store in New York State. Many locals say there is something to please even the most discriminating individual and that is an understatement!
First off…driving by the store, the first thing you notice is a large US flag in celebration of our nation’s independence. So large that I understand the flag pole is 130 feet tall, weighs 10,000 pounds, and is secured with 60,000 pounds of concrete 13 feet in the ground. So large, it is the largest flag (measuring 30 x 60 feet and weighs 100 pounds) on the tallest pole outside of Texas!
There’s toys such as Thomas the Tank Engine, Playmobil, and hundreds of other exciting, entertaining, and educational toys to spark the imagination of children and grandchildren (parents and grandparents too). In the Train Room, you’ll find the Ridge Road & Rochester Railway, which is built on 2000 square feet of beautiful landscape and runs on 3000 feet of track on four levels through 14 tunnels and across 11 bridges.
Then there’s Christmas. It’s not just one day a year. In fact, it;s every day of the year with a wondrous array of decorations, ornaments, trees, lights, candles, gifts, and everything beautiful, sweet, and silly to make every day so very special.
For the hobbyist, there’s collectibles such as Brittain, Corgi and Franklin Mint as well as craft supplies, hobby items such as Estes rockets and slot cars, Second Nature figures, Heritage Lace, local homemade chocolates, hot-air balloons and flying machines, dragons and oil lamps, wind chimes, gift cards, T-shirts, sweatshirts, socks and hats, and so much more. Even videos, books, magazines, Christmas cards, postcards, signs, whistles, T-shirts and, of course, hats.
Gifts arrive every week, on the web (http://www.ridgeroadstation.com/), and in the store.
