This past Saturday, November 6, we had our first round of Playmobil National Day of Play! Be Beep was chosen by the Head of Sales at Playmobil to participate in this special day and we were EXTREMELY honored to be chosen! In our excitement, we got the date wrong! Hard to imagine we would make a mistake right?? Not! Therefore, we decided we would just have TWO Playmobil days. The official date is Saturday November 20 and our first "dry-run" was this past weekend! It was so much fun! We had Zesto's corndogs (delicious) and Baskin Robbins ice cream (always a hit!). Here are a few of the photos we took:
This weekend, Saturday November 13, we are celebrating Neighborhood Toy Store Day hosted by ASTRA (American Specialty Toy Retailing Association). This nation-wide event highlights the importance of local independent toy stores on children, families, and the communities in which they are located.
According to ASTRA's website: "Shopping at neighborhood and independent retailers not only increases consumer choice, it also preserves jobs and local character. According to the 3/50 Project, for every ...$100 spent in local, independently-owned stores, $68 returns to the community in the form of taxes, salaries, charitable contributions and more–in contrast with only $43 dollars when consumers spend their money at a national chain."
This day not only celebrates the importance of local toy stores, but also YOU as the customer! We appreciate each and every customer that walks through our door and this day is just as much for you as it is for us as a store! So come celebrate the joy of play with us! We will be serving complimentary Baskin Robbins ice cream and Zesto's corndogs again and will also have some great door prizes! We will also have a special email coupon. Not on our e-mail list?
