    The Dragon's Nest is a specialty toy store. We are located in downtown Newburyport, and serve the Massachusetts North Shore as well as the New Hampshire Seacoast.


    We carry the very best quality products - items that stimulate the mind, challenge the imagination and promote creativity and fun - items that enrich a childhood no matter the age.


    Our friendly Toyologists provide a positive shopping experience to all who enter. Our's is a creative place that welcomes children and their parents and grandparents and friends and uncles and aunts.


    The store was founded by Martin and Donna Seim in 1982. Until recently, the store was operated by their daughter Kristin. It is now owned and operated by Sally Owen.


    Come and visit us - on Market Square in historic Newburyport - where we recently celebrated our 34th Christmas season.
