We expanded our book section! Check out our handsome shelf...

We also expanded our plush selection! Instead of having Douglas spill out all over our store we now have it contained in two towers.

Douglas Racks

We've got a bunch of new Board Games, and many of the old ones are severely discount. We have two shelves at 33% Off and another two shelves at 50% Off.

Board Games

We expanded our Cap Guns section! We've had plastic novelty cap guns for a while, but we just brought in some diecast ones. The beautiful rifle on the bottom left is diecast & wood.

The past two holiday seasons we ran out of Lava Lamps before Christmas. This year we stocked up. They came out with a ton of beautiful varieties this year.

Screwball Scramble 1 & 2 are out on display. The goal is to guide your marble through the obstacle course using the buttons and levers at the bottom. It can be a bit frustrating at times, but it's also very very fun and addicting. Once you master the course, the goal is to do it as fast as possible. I didn't take a picture, but we also have the brand new Screwball Scramble Level Up in stock.

We brought in four new STEM companies this year and our shelves are STOCKED. We've got several DIY car kits, Galileo and Fitzroy barometers, a couple of new electronics kits, and a bunch of other stuff. Ages range from 3 to 14+.

Science Technology Engineering Math

Also on the engineering side we brought in 3 sizes of Star Coaster Marble Rollercoasters. We carried Version 2 last year and Version 3 the previous. Now we have 2, 3, and 5; which looks super deluxe. These are for older kids, but we also have a rollercoaster building kit that's appropriate for ages 7+ (you can see it on the right side of the new bookshelf picture).

Star Coasters

Jean Curvey brought in a bunch of new ceramic figurines and Christmas tree ornaments. There are some super cute designs in this wave.

Ceramic Cuties

In the Yellow Playcade this month we have an Engineering Floating Bathblocks set. I built a small boat on Small Business Saturday and kids have been adding onto since then.

In the Red Playcade we have Magnetic Blocks and a Fantacolor Peg Drawing Board.

Fantacolor and Magnetic Blocks

This week we're getting more blind box figurines and Paradox Rift Pokemon Cards (and some oldies too). I'll make another post in a couple of weeks.

Apparently an indoor amusement park named "Funky Planet" opened in a mall somewhere in Kazakhstan. A recent visitor graciously uploaded photos of the park to our Google Maps page yesterday. Hopefully Google removes the pictures soon, because I already got a call from someone. Maybe someday we'll be a Toy Store/Amusement Park/Toddler Playroom/Bookstore/Arcade/Pinball Gallery/Mahjong Parlor/Fun Land, but not yet 😀
