About Us

We are glad that you are taking the time to learn about us. In short, Live And Learn is a Maryland, USA based retailer of better children's products. We have been in business since 1988. Although we are a family run business, we are a S Corporation. As with all Maryland based businesses, our company records are available to the public. And finally, we are proud to have the distinction of being the oldest online toy store.

That's right, we are the oldest operating online toy store. In fact, when we first started Live And Learn, people in the toy industry thought we were crazy to think we could sell toys on the Internet! Well, who is laughing now?

Since we began, the "big boys" have come and gone, but lo and behold, we have been here since the dawn of the web...and will be here tomorrow because we know what we are doing, we know our customers, and we have a thorough knowledge of the products we sell.

We are still here because we are real "toy people". We know our products, we limit our stock to the best toys available, we maintain proper inventories, we sell our toys at fair prices, and most of all...we treat our customers as people, not invoice numbers, and we offer real personalized customer service.

You can actually call us on the phone, and speak directly with the person handling your order. We would like to see you try that at the mega stores which are online!

Yes, you can purchase with confidence at Live And Learn, and get a personalized shopping experience if you need it.

Our customer base is world wide. Current customers include public and private schools, day care centers, home day care providers, teachers, concerned parents, and celebrities.

We also do business with companies needing products for presentations, television and video producers seeking props, and institutions needing toys, games and play equipment in waiting areas.


The Live And Learn web site is actually two sites in one. We have The Learning Pages, which has information and resources for teachers, daycare providers and concerned parents. And we have the Live And Learn Online Catalog, which features high quality educational and specialty toys at discounted prices.

At Live And Learn you will encounter some of the best customer service representatives on the web. Whether you are asking about an article, link or game on our Learning Pages, or a product, price or shipping option on our Online Catalog...you will get a quick, courteous and helpful response. We pride ourselves in the efforts we take to help you. As one of the first businesses on the web, we remember when the web meant helping each other, not selling to each other. Selling was an after thought!
