What a Great Little Store

Instead of going to 100 different stores to find the perfect gift for my granddaughter, I decided to go to the toy store downtown. What a great little store! Quaint and it’s like I remember toy stores when I was little. I got an incredible stuffed bear, so soft and cuddly, a Lambchop puppet, and two wonderful wooden toys. The prices were great too. Love this store.

Run By Folks Who Love What They Do

Reminds me of the toy stores of my youth. Packed floor to ceiling with wonderful things and run by folks who love what they do.

We Were Blown Away By the Selection

I’ve lived in South Lyon for almost 15 years now, and I’ve always enjoyed the beautiful window displays at Diane’s. How I never managed to stop in until now, I don’t know.

This Christmas my boyfriend and I were shopping for a unique gift for his grandaughter and decided to stop in. We were blown away by the selection of cool and unusual toys, especially their selection of learning based toys. They have stuff that neither of us had ever seen before. Kits that teach you electronics, building, spatial reasoning, music, and of course, plenty of dolls.

For such a small town, this is truly a great toy store. Diane was very kind and helpful too, even when we stayed at least an hour past closing.

We greatly enjoyed our shopping experience here, and highly recommend Diane’s Doll House!

Absolutely love this place

Pricing is nice, and I can usually even catch discounts. There are tons of products and different types of toys and collectables. The building is well kept, clean, and has a great atmosphere.

Delighted to Find THIS Toy Store

We moved recently to South Lyon and were delighted to find this toy store downtown. The owner, Diane, is so friendly, and her store is stocked with a great variety of toys, dolls and a huge stock of jigsaw puzzles for the parents and grandparents, too. I’m sure we’ll be frequenting this shop on a regular basis.

Dolls Galore

This is a wonderful little toy store in downtown South Lyon! Diane’s Doll House carries dolls galore, including brandslike Madame Alexander,Adora, Corolle, and many more! She also carries Playmobil,Calico Critters, Melissa and Doug, and many other top names in toys. If you are like me and want to steer your children clear of all the noise making, light flashing, highly commercialized toys at Toys R Us, this is the toy store for you!

Definitely a Place To Frequent

Definitely a place I frequent! So much to offer in there! They have something for just about every age, and the owner is so helpful and kind. It truly does remind you of a toy store from back in the day. Definitely something you don’t come across every day. Inside an old bank building too, so gives it a really neat feel. 😉

My Girls Love This Place

My girls (3 & 11) love this place, Diane is so helpful and patient with the kids and after overhearing it was my daughters birthday she even offered her a discount at the register despite not having a coupon in hand (new to the area).

Lots of unique items at reasonable prices I love supporting local small businesses like this!

A Toy Store From the Yesterdays

Is so much like the toy store’s of yesterdays! When you walk in, you will surprised how fast you turn into a child again! Charming place that either has or can get you, any doll that your little princess may desire. Friendly staff, seems to be family owned. May not be!! But, either way.. you feel like family the first time you walk through the door!!

Side Note!!! More parking in the back behind the store than in front!

Hometown and Friendly

This is a nice place to go if you are looking for some great toys for your kids. From classic dolls to the newest trend (like webkins!) they have what your kids are bugging you to get.
