The idea behind Brenda’s Blumenladen’s sister store, Kinderladen, started when owner Brenda Siegenthaler began selling children’s items at Blumenladen. As the demand for these items grew, so did the selection. Brenda found that her customers had a large interest in fun, quality toys as many of her customers had children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of their own to shop for! Wanting to devote more space to children’s games, books, puzzles and gifts, Brenda decided to open up a shop to specialize in these children’s items that both she and her customers love so much.

Kinderladen takes pride in its products, so you will find only the most unique, best educational and highest quality selection of children’s items inside! We have a wonderful assortment of classic wooden toys, luscious plush, mind-challenging games, dress-up clothes, entertaining books, activity sets and more from leading brands like KLUTZ, Melissa & Doug, Thinkfun, Magna-Tiles, Jellycat, HABA, Janod, Dover and House of Marbles. 

In need of a gift? We can help you find the perfect item at any price point, for a boy or girl of any age. Kinderladen also offers FREE gift wrapping! Choose from our fun selection of cards and Voila! Your gift shopping is complete.

Our philosophy at Kinderladen is the same as it is as our parent store Brenda’s Blumenladen; we will always keep the store fresh and filled with new products and lend open ears to our customers’ desires and suggestions.
