Dancing Bear is Door County's old fashioned, small town, toy store.  In 1994, we opened Dancing Bear on Sturgeon Bay's Historic Third Avenue, becoming Door County's first year round toy store.  We purchased this historic 1880s storefront just a couple of years before deciding it was the perfect spot for a children’s toy store combined with a room full of special “Little Luxuries” for all ages.  We're located just three blocks from the waterfront, close to other charming shops, art galleries and restaurants.  We’re also within walking distance of the boat docks along Sturgeon Bay's waterfront, and two blocks from White Lace Inn, our Historic Inn with 18 quest rooms and suites, opened in 1982.

We've created a whimsical atmosphere with cozy little rooms full of colorful wooden toys, creative games and puzzles, wonderful books for young children, an adorable area for baby gifts, engaging crafts and science kits, a great selection of children's greeting cards, and oodles and oodles of classic and silly stuffed animals, AND, our room of “Little Luxuries” for grownups.

Fun is our mantra. Come and join in the fun!
