Meet the Team

 

Sam Rickenbaugh

Owner

Sam grew up here in Bozeman and remembers going to the toy store as a child to pick out legos. (The lego obsession has yet to fade) So, the toy store is a great fit for him!
He's a kind-hearted guy, who is willing to help anyone. When he's not at the store, Sam enjoys hunting, skiing or spending time with his black lab, Ronnie.

Ryan Cassavaugh 

Manager & Assistant Buyer

Ryan has been a downtown staple for nearly fifteen years as the manager of a Cactus Records before turning his retail experience to the world of toys.
In his spare time Ryan is a successful playwright, stand up comedian, and host; or he was, until all the theaters shut down. While waiting for the world to reopen he spends most evenings reading with his wife, daughter, and three dogs.
