This Saturday, November 10th is Neighborhood Toy Store Day!

In conjunction with the American Speciality Toy Retailing Association, Neighborhood Toy Store Day celebrates stores commitment to the local community as well as introducing families to shopping locally!

My family and I believe in the importance of shopping locally.  It’s a great way to support local businesses and allow dollars to stay within your own community. Other benefits include –

  • Economic stability
  • Community Development
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • A diverse selection of products

Independent toy stores carry a wide variety of high-quality toys that are typically hard to find at big-box stores.  Check out these great toys we received…

Puppet on a Stick Toy

The Puppet on a Stick toy allows children to use their imaginations and create personalities for this fun-looking creatures.  Kai, Lex and Fez are perfect for little ones to create their own puppet show!

My First Super Science Kit Toy

The My First Super Science Kit offers more than 70 activities for the little science lover in your house.  Whether you’re learning about electricity or using the gigantic magnified glass – this is a fantastic way to introduce children to learning… while having fun!

Brio Classic Toy Train Set

The Brio Toy Train set is a toy that I remember from my childhood!  It’s a classic toy that is perfect for train lovers and creating a railway in many different directions.  I have a lot of great memories from playing with Brio trains when I was a little girl!

    I like the cute Puppet on a stick toy. Will have to check our local “The Chalkboard” store to see if any specials they may have had.. it is our favorite place to go, when we need a gift. The kids like playing with all the toys that are on display, we can actually see what each toy looks like outside of the packaging.. it is also a favorite for teachers to shop for visual aids and toys they need for their classrooms… I love browsing all the selections they have, you can spend a afternoon inside and the kids don’t get bored!
