What inspired you to open your store?
Cindy's son LOVED Thomas Wooden Railway, which at the time was only available in the UK. International shipping costs were very high so to make it worth the freight, she bought multiple quantities and sold the rest at her first kiosk!
What was the inspiration behind your store name?
We began selling only Thomas the Tank Engine product, hence the name Totally Thomas. A few years later, as our store kept growing, we expanded to a full-line specialty store and renamed it to Totally Thomas' Toy Depot.
How do you pick products that you know will succeed in your store?
We have to love them. If we're excited, our enthusiasm will pass to our customers.
What is the key to your store’s success?
Our unique selection of toys, and our customer service. We know our stuff!
What is your favorite ZoLi product?
We love the Chubby Gummy! Nothing beats a teether that WORKS! And sized perfectly to reach molars!
