“The Brain Shoppe is the best collection of beautiful toys and gadgets for kids and adults in Ithaca NY. For that matter, it is the best such shop I have come upon anywhere in the world. There is no better way to spend an hour on the Ithaca Commons than playing your way through its wonderful museum-like collection.” — N. David Mermin, Professor Emeritus, Cornell University

“This store is awesome. We came in here on a Thursday afternoon during COVID times (September), and they had plenty of hand sanitizers and sprays around to cleanse your hands while there. There are so many different puzzles, science kits and IQ games for people of all ages. We got gifts for all of my nieces and nephews here, and there were plenty of games suitable for adults. Even if you’re just walking around the area, it’s a cool place to check out and mess around with some of the many puzzles/brain teasers they have out on display!” — Julia Macchione, Satisfied Customer
