Like many visitors to Sturgeon Bay, the Dancing Bear is a must do stop no matter what our schedule. The owner and staff are always incredibly friendly and make it a point to ask if we need help. This year the clerk searched her inventory to see if she had a hand cream we like. When my son liked a stuffed animal, the clerk helped him search for one the right size. All three of us READ the sign out front and put our masks on to comply with the owner's wishes. The Dancing Bear is packed full of unique toys you don't find in any other shops. Don't get me wrong, it's selection is limited but whether you buy something or not you are guaranteed to leave with a smile on your face.

Admittedly, we missed the sign outside about wearing a mask. (we were on vacation and no other stores had this policy in the area!) We were shrilly reminded to put them on so we did so obediently. Spent a good amount of time in the shop and the clerk (owner?) didn't even look up at us, or ask if we needed help. Most quaint shops and businesses in Door County engage with their customers. Too bad as they had many nice toys and books worth purchasing. However, I won't buy anything from someone who has already prejudged us as "anti-maskers" or are too dumb to read. At least that was the way we were made to feel.

This is a wonderful shop with an awesome assortment of toys for all ages. It is a regular stop for us every time we are in town. Saying hello to Jean Louise ( the store kitty) is a highlight.

I have shopped here for baby gifts and for teens. Great variety of high quality items. My favorite toy shop on the whole Peninsula.

We love to stop here and see the newest books and toys they have. Something is always different and new each time! And the people who work here are always friendly and helpful. Be sure and get your picture taken with the bears outside...they're very friendly! :)

Lotions, soaps, socks, puzzles, books, stuffed toys (big and small and in-between), games, wall hangings, Aaron's Thinking Putty, the list goes on and is ever changing. Jean Louis, shop cat extraordinaire is usually sleeping in her basket and sometimes Wizard the shop dog is in. Free/simple wrapping of presents. Always a friendly smile and a chat whenever we stop in.

Yes this place has a lot of children's toys, but it also has homemade soaps and shampoos and candles. Lots to see and the hospitality is wonderful. Make sure to stay at the White Lace Inn B&B to get a discount at this store. Every bit worth both places!!!!

I always try to get to Dancing Bear because if the unique and interesting toys and books they offer. I can always find my grandson something different, like "play-doh" that changes colors from the warmth of your hands! They are always friendly and helpful. A perfect stop for the little ones in your life. And don't forget to take your picture with the bear out front! :)
