In May, Age of Reason closed.
Fans of the unique toy store mourned. Founded in 1983, it became a Westport favorite for items hand-picked to deliver creative, developmental and educational encouragement and enjoyment.
With no sign — and no message on its answering machine — it seemed Age of Reason was one more victim of the Toys R Us/Amazon one-two punch.
But this is even better than Toy Story.
The shop was merely closed for 5 months. Now it’s reopened at 9 Post Road West — 4 doors down from its previous location. It’s between Winfield Deli and Stephen Kempson custom tailor.
Age of Reason has swapped spots with a bridal shop. The brides needed more space; the kids, a bit less.
Sounds “reason”able — and wonderful — to me!
