Picking out toys for your children can be a daunting task at time. There are so many to choose from, you often wonder if the toy will last and you want to know if your child is going to play with it more than just an hour after they open it. A new resource launched this September for parents·interested in learning more about the best toys on the market and where to find them, YourNeighborhoodToyStore.org. They even sent me this really cool toy made out of plants- natural rubber and wheat plastic. I never would have found a toy like that on my own.
The new website is a one-stop resource that connects you with local toy stores, specialty toy makers and industry experts so you can find the joy and excitement in today’s best toys. WooHoo, you will discover the “woohoo” in toys! I just looked up all of the local stores in my areas and they are some really great toy stores that I already love to visit.
