This is a toy, book, and game store focusing on natural and Waldorf-inspired products encouraging children's natural creativity and imagination.

As of August 2007, this store has closed its doors. No note on the door sheds any light as to its closing, but the room is empty of all inventory. The space has been the site of at least three games/toy stores in the past: The Game Preserve (Derrick Bang), The End Zone (run by Vincent—or Ian?) where kids/adults could buy and play card games like Magic, and now Aesop's. Sad.

Recently I went in to buy a gift for my nephew and ended up with an awesome set of Anker architecture blocks as well as some interesting logic puzzles. I noticed a cool collection of math and science toys happening. — DavidPonce

2007-08-06 12:44:40   I was sad to see Aesop's closed last week...is this now a departed business? —ScottLay


2007-08-21 21:36:45   Aesop's Room was having hard times due to a slow economy, and the owners couldn't keep it going as a storefront business. It is still open as an internet-based toy store, [WWW]http://www.aesopsroom.com . Sad to see it go. Remember—if you value your downtown shops, make sure you buy stuff from them! —TedBuehler


2009-08-26 21:36:45   I was the original creator and owner of Aesop's Room. Having began, grown and operated it for about seven years at that point, I was ready to move on. After approximately a year under new ownership, it was disheartening to see Aesop's close. This was the second business I have sold, the first still alive and thriving. I now dedicate myself to helping others grow their business and meet their goals through [WWW]Coaching and [WWW]Business Consultation. —Cisais


2009-08-28 21:39:49   I only worked here a short time before they closed, but loved it. Carmen was great. Very sad to see the new owners couldn't hack it. —EricaMacGregor
