He's a Twin Cities-based writer with a BA in English and a MFA in creative writing, a Minnesota Master Naturalist, and the proud father of two adult children. With more than a decade of freelance writing experience under his belt, Trent is often out exploring his favorite topics: Minnesota's woods, lakes, and trails. Rhubarb pie is his weakness, so discovering new diners is also a passion.
It seems that the toy stores of yesteryear have largely fallen by the wayside as folks have shifted their shopping patterns to large retailers and online outlets. But there’s one independent toy store in Minnesota that is not only going strong, it’s a destination unto itself. That’s right, I’m talking about the inimitable LARK Toys in charming Kellogg, Minnesota.
There’s is so much to do and see and LARK Toys that I can’t really fully describe what it means to experience this toy store in Minnesota. Suffice it to say, there’s enough to see and do that you could easily spend a whole day there. While you’re in the area, be sure to save time to visit one of my favorite Bluff Country hiking spots: The Zumbro Bottoms Management Unit of the Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest is just minutes away from LARK Toys.
