All the best things in the world are not electronic, though it often seems that way. There is still a place on our shelves and in our hearts for thought-provoking, brain-challenging, hand-eye-coordination-requiring items. Think jigsaw puzzles, puppets, books and science toys. The truth is, children and adults still delight in those objects they can touch and manipulate not on a screen but in here-and-now multi-dimensional reality. The Wizard's Chest in Denver's Cherry Creek North neighborhood is the place to find those objects, including wind-up toys and a vast assortment of magic tricks. Originally inspired by the fantastical world of J.R.R. Tolkien, the store keeps fantasy and whimsy very much alive. There's a sizable costume, makeup and accessories collection, too, so if the holidays include dress-up, this is your place.
- Christmas Shopping: "The shop does an entire weekend of board gaming to celebrate National Game & Puzzle Week, starting the Friday after Thanksgiving."
- Best for Christmas Shopping Because: It's the place in Denver to find games, puzzles and cool toys, and it's just plain fun.
