A unique specialty toy store – BrainyZoo Toys – has opened a second Folsom store in the Sutter Street community of Old Folsom. The toy store was founded in 1982 and operated as Toys That Teach, at the Nimbus Winery by Spaghetti Factory for 25 years.
Two years ago, they moved from the Spaghetti Factory location to the Folsom Premium Outlets (in 2018).
Marc Gabris, son of BrainyZoo’s owners Marlene and Charles Gabris says the business is “super proud” to join the special community in downtown Folsom. The Gabris family who own BrainyZoo Toys have been frequent visitors to Sutter Street for years.
Gabris said “Historic Folsom is where we love to go to spend time with friends and family and celebrate special occasions. It also has our favorite Farmers Market and boutique shops.”
Marlene Gabris, BrainyZoo Toys founder is very excited to be a part of the Sutter Street community.
Marlene Gabris says “Every day visitors to our new location on Sutter Street tell us they grew up shopping at our Nimbus Winery store and are so happy to see us again. We love to hear how that store impacted their lives and it is rewarding to see them bring in their children and grandchildren to both our new Sutter Street store and our existing store at the Folsom Premium Outlets.”
