With Christmas coming up, you should consider shopping for toys at Mildred & Dildred. Mildred & Dildred is a local, entirely woman owned and operated business. Their employees always help you with anything you need, check in on you, and they are very kind and friendly as well.

Mildred & Dildred has been serving the children of our community for the past 14 years. Mildred & Dildred has every type of toy, from Pop It to mini baking.

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was a beautiful breath-taking tree. There were also beautiful fairy lights hanging from the wall and ceiling. Both my mom and I thought it was a beautiful place, and even though she is older than me she still had fun looking at the wide variety of toys and books. Mildred & Dildred is owned by Autumn Ruhe, and luckily I got to interview her.

Christmas is without a doubt the busiest time of year for toy shops. This year, it might be a bit challenging for people to get what they want due to the supply chain issues that are currently going on. I asked Ruhe for her input on the issue. “It’s definitely been tough this past year, and we think that this might be our busiest Christmas yet. In order to deal with this, whenever I order something instead of ordering four I order 12 or a bigger amount than I usually do. Right now the back is full of items that we have for when things run out of stock.” she says. Ruhe adds, “If you need something or want something this holiday season, whether it’s toys or not, plan ahead. Getting what you need or want this Christmas is going to be a challenge so always plan ahead.”

I loved being able to interview Ruhe and see the beautiful toy store. If you’re looking to go toy shopping, Mildred & Dildred is the place to go.
