The Lowdown: LARK Toys is as much a toy store as it is a wholesome alternative to Chuck E. Cheese’s, and it’s worth every minute of the almost two-hour drive from downtown Minneapolis. Yes, there are plenty of toys for sale, including retro handcrafted wooden ones made onsite in the LARK woodshop. But there’s also a carousel (hand-carved from local basswood), a bookstore, an antique-toy display, and an 18-hole mini-golf course. Since you’re going to be there for a while, it’s a good thing there’s also a cafe offering sandwiches, salads, and snacks, plus homemade fudge. Oh, there are also mini llamas that kids can get up close and personal with ⏤ their names are Francis, Irving, and George.
