Our Company

History

Photo Nov 14, 1 58 13 PMThis year we are celebrating 32 wonderful years as a small, locally owned business! Melissa Cairns began Cairns Collectibles in 1983 in the large backroom of her home in Tipp City. Originally an antiques and collectibles store specializing in vintage teddy bears and other stuffed animals, the demand for other toys became so great that Cairns Collectibles began to transition into the full-time toy business in 1993. The name was officially changed to Cairns Toys in 2007. Cairns Toys has been in its present location on Main Street in historic downtown Tipp City since 1998.
