About Us

We are NL's Iocal family-owned toy and children's store since 2009!

Gingersnap opened in 2009 in the historic downtown district of St. John's, and passed from its founders into the hands of a new family at the end of 2020. We're excited about what's to come, but dedicated to the high standard of personal customer service, the welcoming kid-friendly atmosphere, and the carefully curated selection that Gingersnap's wonderful customers have supported for more than a decade.

We sell fun and unique gifts from around the world, sourcing from as far as Morocco while buying Canadian whenever possible. Canadian made nursery furniture, music boxes from France, Canadian cloth diapers, imagination toys from Germany and Malta, Canadian sunscreen and Canadian curriculum workbooks, and lots lots more.

We are located at 803 Water Street (at the start of Waterford Bridge Road) with parking for our customers on our side lot.

We focus on quality, play value, and creativity.

At this time, all sales are final sale. Exchange or store credit available!
