The second Saturday in November is Neighborhood Toy Store Day!

On Nov. 12, 2011, local toy stores around the country will be celebrating the joy of play with special events.

Q:  What is a “neighborhood” toy store?

A:  It’s the independently owned toy store offering specialty toys and unique customer service.

Q:  Why should I shop at a neighborhood toy store?

A:  When you buy from locally-owned businesses like toy stores, more of your dollar stays in the community.  It creates a multiplier effect when it goes back into the local economy.

Q:  How can I find a neighborhood toy store?

A:  Go to the ASTRA (American Specialty Toy Retailing Association) website and look for “Find a Store” or click here to find a neighborhood, specialty toy store in your area.

Here are some of the great toys chosen by ASTRA as Best Toys for Kids 2011.
