Fun practically sells itself from this teensy, tidy boutique of toys. – In Short
As the name suggests, Why Be Board deals in games first. Traditional diversions Miles Bornes, the Price is Right, jacks and dreidels share space with hot tickets Spy Alley, The Kevin Bacon Game, Mensa-awarded Apples-to-Apples and Cranium. Other highlights include custom-made backgammon, chess and Mah Jong, Philly-made Bozart marionettes, giant coloring books, Colorforms, kites and Woodkins, paper dolls made of wood and fabric.

Too much fun – I love Why Be Board! I go there for every gift I every need- for kids or adults. The owners, Sharon & Keith Williams, along with their helpers are very helpful & know a lot about all of the games in the store. You won't find that at a KB or Toys R Us, although YOU CAN FIND SCRABBLE at those places.You can also find Scrabble in a Rite Aid or CVS, so why in the world would a store w/ this much variety, this much class carry a game that you could buy when you're picking up your medicine at the drug store??? If you haven't been there, I suggest you plan a trip. It's a lot of fun in that store!!
