Kids’ Ketch has been a constant fixture in historic downtown Lewes since 1990 when it was founded by Teresa Ford. Our store was first located in a 450 sq ft space and after discovering she was on to something, Mrs. Ford relocated to a new location and doubled in size. In 1998, Kids’ Ketch moved to its current space, once again expanding it’s unique toy line and childrens’ clothing offerings. Sandy and Lori Smyth purchased the store in January 2019 and added it to their family of Tidepool Toys & Games stores in Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island. Kids’ Ketch continues to provide over 3700 sq ft of fun to our community and in addition to toys, books and games for all ages, our store carries a broad selection of children’s clothing for newborn to size 6x (winter season) and to size 14 (summer season.)
Here at Kids’ Ketch, we pride ourselves in our customer service and we have a great team of employees who are ready to help you find what you are looking for. So, to all of our devoted Kids’ Ketch shoppers, thank you for your continuing patronage and support. If you haven’t met us yet, we hope you will stop in and say hi; there’s always something new and fun going on here for kids of all ages.
Kid’s Ketch is located… 132 2nd Street, Lewes, DE 19958
Tidepool Toys & Games
We carry a wide variety of toys, games, puzzles, LEGO, kites, crafts, dress-up and more! We are open year-round.
Tidepool Toys and Games opened its doors for business on May 21, 2011. Located oceanfront on the boardwalk in beautiful Bethany Beach, Delaware, Tidepool Toys is just a few steps away from the Atlantic Ocean. We carry kites and beach toys as you would expect to find in a boardwalk store, but also carry a wide variety of specialty toys, games, plush, puzzles and crafts. We are a neighborhood toy store that just happens to be located right on the beach.
The motto, “Toys with a Porpoise”, reflects our goal to have quality toys that have strong play value and bring a smile to children’s faces. We use our experience as parents to pick toys that we would want for our own children, and many of our products were tested in our own home by our son and daughter over the last 9 years.
We get asked about our name sometimes. Tide pools form when the waves are big and water rushes over the beach to get trapped behind higher sand. They are a safe place for kids to play away from the pounding surf, and always a favorite of our kids.
We stay open year-round to serve both visitors and our local customers. We enjoy meeting new families who are vacationing in the Bethany area, and we also get to see our local friends and neighbors who are enjoying the beach or a walk on the boardwalk. We sponsor several events at our store throughout the year.
In April 2014, we are opening our second location down the beach in Fenwick Island to serve both of Delaware’s “quiet resort” towns.
Whether you shop at our store or buy on-line, we want you to have a pleasant shopping experience. We stand behind our products and service. If you are dissatisfied in any way, let us know and we will personally do our best to make things right. – Owners Sandy and Lori Smyth
