What’s not to love about a day devoted to local toy stores? One of our favorite shops, Rainbow Toys in Falmouth, is hosting a daylong event this Saturday to celebrate! The lovely staff promises all kinds of free fun for kids. There will be arts and crafts, face painting, and a giant outdoor game of chess.
The store is also raffling off a Rainbow Loom and bands (which are popular in the CP household these days), a Star Wars Lego set, books, stuffed animals, and craft kits from Alex Toys.
If you’re not near to Rainbow Toys, there are many independent toy shops throughout Maine: Island Treasure Toys, Poofberry’s, Planet Toys, Stone Soup, Out on a Whimsey, Percy’s Burrow, Bella Luna Toys, Treehouse Toys, and more. To find a toy store near your town, try this handy link.
We’re so excited about Neighborhood Toy Store Day, we’ve decided to do a giveaway just for you! Enter to win this beautiful Herve Tullet Coloring Book and wooden toy truck crayon holder from Daytrip Jr. All you need to do is tell us what you love most about your local toy store. Contest ends Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013 at midnight EST. We’ll pick a winner at random. Good luck and have fun on Toy Store Day!
