Toy store reopens in heart of Oakwood

Oakwood’s iconic Blue Turtle Toy Store celebrated its grand reopening under new ownership in the Shops of Oakwood.

Original owner Carolyn Meyer, who opened the store in 1999, announced months ago that she planned to close the store in May and retire. She sold the store to local resident Cathy Tapogna, who will continue selling toys, games, books and puzzles.

The store has remained open the past two months while undergoing a few minor cosmetic changes and updating and replenishing the inventory, but the store celebrated the reopening on Saturday with a special event.

Blue Turtle is located at 2314 Far Hills Ave. between Triangle and Peach Orchard Avenues in Oakwood.
