Best Toy Store
Cooley Katz

Picture Holder
CooleyKatz Toys is all fun and games. The specialty and educational toy store owned and operated by Livermore residents Pat and Nita Cooley offers a variety of toys that are just a little bit different and a whole lot appealing to kids and those adults buying the toys for the kids. The Cooleys opened the store in downtown Livermore on July 1, 2006. They had always wished for a local store with something different and with a little educational value when they were raising their own kids so decided to open one of their own. One fun feature is the Birthday Bucket Brigade. Kids can come in the store and choose toys they’d like to receive for their birthday. The wish list they create makes it super easy for family and friends to come in later to purchase the items at a 10 percent discount. Yes, the name is a little unusual, but if you had a bright orange cat with white stripes named Cooleykat, you’d want to name a toy store after him too!
