Wishes Toy Store Owner Marti Hurd loves her job.

Hurd, a burnt-out ski instructor ready to move from the valley, found her calling when she went to work for the store 10 years ago.

“It’s great when you find a fit in your life,” Hurd said. “You get to buy all kinds of cool stuff and you can play with some of it. I feel very lucky.”

Around the holidays, they couldn’t keep enough Groovy Girls in stock. Papo figurines, highly detailed and highly durable, are another hot seller among the kids. Dragons, knights and princesses inspire loads of imagination. The little ones can’t get enough of Thomas the Train, either.

They don’t lack in dress-up clothes, stuffed animals or games.

They do a lot of birthday party presents and they wrap everything for free.
