Just in time for us to start thinking of the gift-giving holiday season, a new website that connect parents to stores, specialty toy makers and industry experts YourNeighborhoodToyStore.org has launched! It is a website in a mission “to help parents discover the woohoo factor – or the delight, the joy and the excitement – of finding and playing with today’s best toys!”
No more searching around for information on the best toys on the market. The website even have up-to-date news on toy trends. With an easy to use built-in store locator, you can now visit and support your neighborhood and community stores.
Here in Chicagonista we are very proud in finding local businesses to support. So it is with great pleasure that the YourNeighborhoodToyStore.org builder, ASTRA – American Specialty Toy Retailing Association asked me to become an ambassador. Astra is a company “that bring members of the independent toy industry together to help each other succeed”.
