ABOUT OUR STORE
The Dragon's Nest is a specialty toy store. We are located in historic downtown Newburyport, and have been serving the Massachusetts North Shore as well as the New Hampshire Seacoast and beyond since 1982.
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. We also carry fun novelties, games and puzzles for kids and adults.
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. After retiring, Martin and Donna passed control and ownership to their daughter Kristin, who operated the store until January of 2014. It is now owned and operated by Sally Owen.
