One of the joys of shopping in antique stores is finding some of those simpler toys where children play without electronics. Many love listening to a child playing “make-believe,” using their imaginations as they create their stories.
Although it’s been a while since we last posted, we have a wonderful assortment of books, games, and toys that encourage a child’s creativity while foregoing the screens and electronics! Many believe that a bit of boredom is actually good for a child’s development.
Here’s a gallery of some of the interesting children’s ideas available:
We encourage you to stop in and see if a book, game, or simple toy might be just what a youngster in your life might truly enjoy this summer!
And yes, we’re here and we’re ALWAYS watchin’ for ya! Stop by and we’ll help you find the items mentioned here! Happy Summer!
Whether you loved the Bobbsey Twins or the Hardy Boys, we’ve probably got a number of your favs. Want to pass them on to your kids? We also have a couple Bunny Brown and Sister Sue books, Walt Disney’s “Annette”, “The Outdoor Girls on a Hike”, and several Donna Parker mystery books!
Rainy Days and Monday!
Yes, we know the weather is unpredictable. Is it going to rain all day or just be a rumbling of thunder, 15 minutes of rain, and back to beautiful? If you carry a favorite read with you, you’ll never be bored or have your day ruined.
Stop in today, while it’s pleasant weather, and grab a book or two (or three) to enjoy on a less than perfect day. We have wonderful coffee shops and restaurants to enjoy refreshments while making a perfect day of the rain! Yep, we’ll be watchin’ for ya (even on a rainy day)!!!
