Richard Scarry Week Continues!

Events, ToysMegan PeronaComment

Hello again! First, a big thank you to our friends over at Ladybird and Fellow blog!  Today they have a special post about our store and Richard Scarry Day!  Check out the post here.  Their blog is full of the loveliest eye candy.  It's the perfect companion during a teatime break or when you just need something to look at while you take a few deep breaths.

Going along with yesterday's review of Cars and Trucks and Things That Go, we thought we'd share a few of our top Cars and Trucks and Things That Go.

First up, for your little guys (ages 1+) the Funtime Tractor is guaranteed fun!  This self-propelled tractor trailer includes a herd of farm critters and a farmer for imaginative fun!  And, when the animals are matched to the correct footprint they make noise!

For those a little older, like 3+, pick up one of the ever popular Airport Playsets. These die cast sets come with everything you need to play airport; plane, shuttle bus, luggage truck, signs, orange cones and even a stair truck!  Available in major airlines, UPS delivery service or Air Force One.

Like your feet to stay on the ground, even in your imagination?  Check out Hape's selection of bamboo cars, motorcycles and helicopters.  This eco-designed toy is made of bamboo, painted with water based color, coated with beeswax, then packaged in a recycled cardboard box.  And, it's so pretty it practically doubles as a piece of art.

And, in case your calendar isn't marked yet, this Saturday from 11am-1pm is Richard Scarry Day (note: the author will not be present, but characters from NW Childrens Theater's Busytown will be)!  Storytime with Lowly Worm is at 11:30, followed by free photos with the Busytown guys and a coloring activity!  All Ages.  Free.

Have an awesome day!
