La Tienda Gift Shop hasn't forgotten the littlest visitors to the museum!  Mom and Dad will find books and toys for children of all ages.  Our holiday section also carries great items perfect for stuffing your holiday stockings.  Below  you will find a sampling of the items we carry for children.

Historic Toys

La Tienda carries a variety of historic toys.  Children can choose from old fashioned games like Tiddlywinks or learn the campfire games of the past.  We also carry figurines and soft toys like these historic rubber duckies that let your child take a trip to the past when they play.

Gardening and Kitchen Play

Your child is invited to poke around in our garden and kitchen sections to see the unique and adorable toys we carry.  From vinyl bugs that can last even the toughest of play to dainty flower fairies, whatever  your child's interest, we have a toy they can enjoy.

Plush Animals

For the littlest tyke in your family (or the biggest kid at heart!), we carry plush animals that are the right size for small hands.  You will find horses, dogs, cats, and even marine plushies in our gift shop that just beg to be taken home and loved!

Bilingual Books

The BHA is located right here on the U.S.-Mexico border and to celebrate the bi-cultural world we are set in, La Tienda carries several bi-lingual books for children. In addition to the fairy tales, we also have several bilingual children's books in our kitchen section.

Civil War

For older kids, La Tienda carries a line of goods inspired by the Civil War.  Pens, pencils, and this secret marker kit are just a few of the items we carry that make the perfect gift for the history lover in your family.


The Stillman House is a Victorian era house and we have Victorian era items that your children will adore, including this dainty tea set.  We also carry metal banks, paper dolls, and more!
