So, you’ve got a birthday (or any gift giving occasion) coming up and you want something more unique for the kids in your life and you’re on the hunt for the very Best Toy Store in Asheville!? Friend, you’re in luck! Not only am I a native of WNC but I’m also mama to a 7 year old, toy obsessed, little boy, sooooo I’m basically an expert on this subject!

Baby celebrates his first birthday with a Cake Smash Photoshoot in Asheville and gifts from the Best Toy Store in Asheville.

Not only is Dancing Bear Toys a beloved Asheville Landmark, a cornerstone of the Best Of WNC Hall of Fame and one of the oldest toy stores in Asheville but it also happens to be my personal favorite and in my humble opinion, the Best Toy Store in Asheville!

But — how about these adorable cookie monster themed cake smash photos!?

Baby celebrates his first birthday with a Cake Smash Photoshoot in Asheville and gifts from the Best Toy Store in Asheville.

Dancing Bear has always been more than just a store. It’s a space for kids and adults to play. It’s a gathering place for locals and a place for tourists to experience our region’s wacky side. Not only that, they are committed to giving back to our community through free events, donations, and a free lending library of toys for teachers. 

The owners and staff at Dancing Bear work really hard to bring WNC the best, weirdest, most unique toys on the market! Dancing Bear has hundreds of demos available and they’re always ready to play with you! As an added bonus, if you’ve been invited to a birthday party or simply need a gift for a child in your life, they have complimentary gift wrapping on site & I don’t know an Asheville kid alive who doesn’t get ultra jacked when they see that signature jungle gift wrap arrive!

Visit Dancing Bear Toys Monday – Saturday from 10am – 6pm at 518 Kenilworth Rd in Asheville NC 28805. Or, give them a call for curbside pickup at (828)255-8697.

If you came for the Toy Store reveal but stayed for these adorable Cookie Monster themed Cake Smash Photos shot in our Asheville Portrait Studio, I would love to invite you to the studio to celebrate the little people in your life with a Milestone Portrait Session and / or Cake Smash Photoshoot in Asheville!

Each of the Milestone and Cake Smash Sessions at my studio are completely custom based upon parents’ preferences for theme and / or color pallet! After booking, we’ll schedule a pre-session phone consultation where we’ll discuss your ideas and preferences for theme and / or color pallet for the sessiom! From there, I will procure all prop items needed for the session and design the set! On the day of your Milestone Portraits, Birthday or Cake Smash Portrait Session, you just show up, ready to party!
