Tennessee Kids

Kids city
Nashville Public Library
615 Church St., Downtown
Here, there's storytelling on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, and marionette shows on Fridays and Saturdays. Stories are presented by a cast of wacky characters including “The Professor” who not only reads but gets sing-alongs, and lots of rainbow drawings going too. The professionally crafted marionettes at the library are something special, made by a master puppeteer named Tom Tichenor. GP's kids got to see “The Princess and the Frog” but the shows change often and throughout the year.
Phillip’s Toy Mart
5207 Harding Rd., Belle Meade
Tim and Faith’s girls, Gracie, Maggie, and Audrey McGraw, recommended this store to us—it’s a kid’s dream come to life: there are toys crammed in every nook and cranny of this shop. You will find no big-brand toys in here—it’s been there forever, full of costumes, books, and wooden toys. Reese Witherspoon used to go there with her grandparents. GP's kids could have spent an entire day in there and would get excited at the very mention of the word, “Phillip’s.”
