It is almost time for Neighborhood Toy Store Day 2018! We are gearing up and getting ready with lots of new products for kids of all ages. While we are preparing, you might be wondering what Neighborhood Toy Store Day is really all about. We join together with other retailers from all around the country to kick of the holiday season on this day, the second Saturday in November. It a chance for us to celebrate our community, promote the value of shopping local and spread the joy of play.
This year we are celebrating Neighborhood Toy Store Day for two day, November 10th and 11th. Both of our stores will be offering a 20% discount store wide and free season gift wrap (with bells)!
ASTRA (American Specialty Toy Retailer Association) views this event as a chance for locally owned toy stores to support keeping communities unique and vital. Many of their members support this day in lots of different ways. This year we teamed up with our friends at Green Toys to create this darling dough label. This dough is made with organic flour and is super fun to play with. You can find out more about the product on their website at Green Toys then come in and get it from us!
We are really excited about the dough play sets. These are two of our favorites.
The Tools Essentials Dough Set is awesome. This 11-piece set is the perfect starter kit for the youngest dough molder: 1 star extruder, 1 spaghetti extruder, 1 scraper, 1 knife, 1 roller, 1 rolling cutter, 1 scissors, 1 two-sided activity card, 3 dough tubs.
The Race Car Maker Dough Set is really dynamic too. This 12-piece set includes everything needed to create endless custom car designs: 2 race car chassis, 2 race car tops, 1 cone maker, 2 arrow molds, 1 rolling cutter, 1 knife, 3 dough tubs.
If you visit us this year and want to contribute to the cause on social media, use the hashtag #NTSD18 and #NeighborhoodToyStoreDay to share your love for your neighborhood toy store, Beyond the Blackboard!
Cheers From The Team and Beyond the Blackboard
