      Ami, owner


      Meet the owner, Ami:

      KOA: What inspired you to open your shop?
      AMI: An opportunity presented itself to continue to provide Lakeshore and surrounding neighborhoods with a toystore, and we wanted to continue to keep an old school toystore in Oakland.

      KOA: What made you want to sell toys and books?
      AMI: We actually bought the old Toyshouse 22 years ago and continued to provide Lakeshore as a go-to destination for toys and books.

      KOA: What do you love about Oakland?
      AMI: The small town feel in a big city. There's no street quite like Lakeshore, it's a very unique environment. There’s a little something for everyone.

      KOA: What does your store say about Oakland?
      AMI: Something we hear from customers a lot is "I never knew you were here" and they’re shocked to learn we've been here for so long. It's nice being a hidden gem that brings people instant joy. On the flip side, we have very loyal customers and are not ready to cave to big box stores.

      KOA: What are some other local shops you love?
      AMI: Bay-Made (hello neighbor!), Colonial Donuts, and Aunt Mary's.

      KOA: What's your favorite product in the shop?
      AMI: I love art, so these pencils are magic. Colored pencils AND watercolors at the same time?
