Neighborhood Toy Store Day


I love this event held every year all over the country!!

Not only is it a fun time to experience local neighborhood Toy Stores - but you can help the 'little guys' and give our economy a nice boost too!!

The American Specialty Toy and Retailing Association (ASTRA) established Neighborhood Toy Store Day to introduce families to the fun of shopping at local toystores and to celebrate each retailer’s commitment to the community. Participating stores will host local in-store events for families, such as face painting, craft projects, live performances or special discounts.

Be sure to check out their Best Toys for 2012 of the season and find something great to pick up this Saturday at your favorite LOCAL toy store.

Here are a couple of toys we found on the list that we LOVE!!
