Visitors to Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands will simultaneously be visiting the gorgeous Cape Hatteras National Seashore. One of the largest preserved parcels of the Outer Banks, the National Seashore stretches across 70 miles of shoreline, encompassing seven villages on Hatteras Island, and providing visitors with miles of undisturbed, scenic beaches as well as some of the prettiest natural drives on the East Coast.
Interactive toys for the beach and the beach house can be found at this sherbet green and pink building located at Whalebone Junction. Most of the toys, games, books and crafts sold here are classics that have stood the test of time, maybe with updated materials and a modern twist. For instance, hula hoops are iridescent. Popular brands are in stock, including Melissa and Doug, Playmobil, Usborne & Kane, Miller Books and Manhattan Toy. You can find Frisbees and throwing rings, geyser football, Pirate Poppers and The Spooner Fun Board, not to mention stuffed toys (how about a big dolphin or dragon?), pirate dolls, horse models, jump ropes, fish-y toys, sand toys, a “chef’s center” kitchen, and good ol’ fashioned skipper ball.
