"Yes! We will bring the coveted Kidoodles' little door with us to our new location!"

About 40 Years Ago...

Kidoodles was opened by realtor Jan Nelson in Brookhaven Village at 3700 W. Robinson Street in November of 1985. It was known for having the special little door for young customers, offering “birthday wish” wagons, the bubble gum scent in the store and having eclectic and unique toys!

In October of 2004, Linda Angel bought Kidoodles and moved it to Normandy Creek Center on Main Street, where she operated for 5 years. Ed and Lin Copelin purchased the store from Linda in 2009 and moved it to downtown Main Street, where they also had Copelin’s, a teaching tool and office supply business. Lin, a former teacher, managed the store for many years. Ed and Lin announced their retirement in early 2023.

Jump Forward to 2023!

In spring of 2023, Kidoodles was purchased by us – Dirk and Stephanie O’Hara. The store will move approximately one mile to Carriage Plaza, which is on Main Street. And, yes! We will bring the coveted little door with us and will still use the popular Kidoodles star gift wrap. We are excited to share that the longtime Kidoodles manager, Jennifer Brooks will be coming with us to the new location!

We are expanding the toy lines we will carry, offering things that are unique. Whether it is an item that is not available on Amazon, a brand that is women-owned, products made in the USA, quality European brands not found in local stores – we will have something for every budget.

Kidoodles is also proud to announce that we will be featuring clothing and accessories for children and teens sizes 4 to 16!

We appreciate you shopping local – supporting THE AMERICAN DREAM. When profits stay local, it increases our community’s wealth, tax revenue and standard of living.
