About Us

Who & What is Becky & Me Toys


Becky & Me Toys was founded in 2002 by Peggy Sebert and her daughter, Becky. Peggy is a former teacher with 15 years classroom experience in pre-school to 3rd grade. Becky graduated in the Spring, 2005 from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, with a major in Early Childhood Education.  She is currently a kindergarten teacher.  

It has been said that “play is the work of children.” Through play children acquire knowledge and develop skills. They satisfy emotional and social needs. They learn about themselves and their relationship to the immediate environment and to the wider world. Quality play is stimulated and enhanced by quality toys and materials. In an electronics-oriented society, Becky & Me Toys is committed to encouraging play that is real (not virtual), that is active and creative, and that is focused on the concerns, ideas and interests of children.

Becky & Me Toys provides:

Great products

We try out the toys, play the games, and read the books before we bring them into the store. We are constantly looking for new companies and products that have value for children.



Great presentation

We take care to display our merchandise in attractive ways that help customers see the products and find what they need.



Great service

We are here to help when you want help. We can be your personal guide to our products and we can assist you in selecting developmentally appropriate toys.
