About Us

Blue Turtle Toys has been providing fun to the the Dayton, Ohio area since 1999.  It was started by long-time toy expert Carolyn Meyer in a small space on the corner of Far Hills and Triangle Avenues and quickly became known for its wonderful selection of toys, games and books.

The store grew in popularity with the Dayton area and Blue Turtle Toys moved to a larger space just a block north at 2314 Far Hills Avenue in 2005.  When Carolyn retired in 2017, Cathy Tapogna bought the store to continue its reputation as providing unique, educational and fun products while mixing in new products from around the world.  

The size and scope of the store does not overwhelm and allows you the time to really see the products. The staff is at the ready to help answer any questions and to assist you in selecting the perfect gift. There are products for every age and price range. We hope you'll stop in and browse, but more importantly, have fun when you're here.
