Kaleidoscope Toys is seeking a new owner.

The owners of Third Avenue mainstay Kaleidoscope are looking for a new buyer of the almost 20-year-old toy store.

Inna and Paul Trinidad, proprietors of the business since 2009, announced on Wednesday, March 7 that they are seeking a buyer who will carry on the legacy of the specialty toy store. The pair hopes to secure a purchaser “who will continue to serve the neighborhood with a unique selection of toys, games and gifts,” according to a press release.

The beloved Bay Ridge toy store first opened in 1999 with Inna serving as an employee during her college years. When the opportunity arose, she and her husband, Paul, took ownership of the community staple. Kaleidoscope is known for its appealing education and STEM-oriented toys and frequent support of local charities like Bay Ridge Cares and the Guild for Exceptional Children, as well as its events, such as Friday Movie Night — a drop-off service for kids that allows parents some free time — and its free gift-wrapping.

“After nine amazing years in business, it was a long and hard decision to part with Kaleidoscope,” said Inna. “The Bay Ridge community has been so supportive. It’s our strong desire for the store to remain an iconic staple in the neighborhood – one where shoppers know they can find just the right toy for a curious child.”

“We have invested our time and effort to maintain the business to be as successful as it’s always been,” added Paul. “We’re looking to pass the torch to another community-minded owner.”

Anyone interested in buying is urged to contact Dina Homsi at Ben Bay Realty of Bay Ridge at 347-809-0906.

Kaleidoscope is located at 8722 Third Avenue.
