BuddingScholars - Burlington's educational toy store

Welcome to BuddingScholars.

We are an elementary school teacher owned and operated toy store with a strong educational focus. Since opening doors for business in Burlington, Ontario (that's in Canada), we have experienced steady growth with increasing number of customers and product selection.

We feature well known product lines such as Thomas & Friends (both wooden and take along or "die cast" as some folks like to call it), Lamaze, an extensive Schleich (pronounced 'sh-lae-ck') collection (including Knights series, animal series, dinosaur series, sea creature series and smurfs; told you we had a lot), LEGO and Playmobil.

Our other product categories include plush dolls, puppets, books, multimedia (still growing), infant toys, toddler toys, bath toys (very popular), arts & crafts, outdoor toys, imaginative play (e.g., costumes, pretend foods, dish sets, tools, etc...), construction toys, science toys and games and puzzles.

We are constantly evolving based on our customers' "I really really want this" list (both children and ...-ahem- parents).

If you are nearby in Burlington, Oakville, Milton or even as far as Hamilton, come by for a visit. We have multiple play areas in the store to occupy your children so that you can take a breather and look around. If you would like to make a purchase, that's even better. But either way, you're always welcome here at BuddingScholars.

As we are always looking to change for the better, we value your feedback and comments. Questions are welcome too. To give us your feedback or question, click here (a new window will open).

After completing the short form, you will be asked to join our electronic magazine list called Promo&News. Through it, you will receive valuable parenting tips, summaries of important and relevant articles and before-the-public-finds-out notices for promotions, sales and events.

To sign up for Promo&News without giving us a feedback, click here (a new window will open).

If you are not in Burling, Oakville, Milton or Hamilton area, promotions and sales will have little use, right?

Not for long, because we are expanding our store on the Internet. We are currently working on setting up our Internet store and once it's completed, the notice will go out through... you got it, Promo&News.

So sign up now either right away or after leaving us a feedback. You don't want to miss the chance of being able to shop for quality educational toys from the comfort of your home.

As you browse through this site, you will notice that it is filled with content. Unlike other stores just trying to sell you something, we want you to be informed and feel comfortable with us. That's why we strive to bring you great content that matters. And that's what we do partly through Promo&News.

Take a load of your shoulders (taking care of your children is hard enough, we know) and let us do some of the research and let you know what you need to know.

Hope to see you on the next issue of Promo&News (and at the store if you're nearby).

Just because you hear it online does make it true. In fact, what you read online could actually be complete opposite of the truth. In the case of SiteSell, competitors invented "facts" to make it appear to be a scam. Using Google's algorithm, their accusations have yet to fade away.
