Dancing Bear Toys, a dedicated HABA retailer is featured on the cover of the August 2015 Issue of EdPlay Magazine!
Family owned and operated for more than 20 years, Dancing Bear Toy Stores in North Carolina has gained quite a reputation, with the Hendersonville location earning the "Best Toy Store In The Area" title 8 years in a row.
When the local Hooters restaurant closed and became the town eye-store, the owners saw the building as an opportunity to grow their Asheville location, so they packed up and relocated. But not before completely gutting the old defunct restaurant to make it all their own. The coolest feature is the re purposed bar into what they now call the "Game Bar". Since relocating to the new building, their sales have increased significantly. The owners attribute their success to having more space which allows them to hold community programs such as a Fun Fest, Screen-Free Week, Birthday Club, Cuteness Showdown, Teacher Lending Library, as well as regular events that coincide with current pop culture (ex Dino Week to celebrate the opening of Jurassic World). Customers have come to love their unique, comfortable atmosphere, and pProducts are organized by category, then my company and age, not by gender. The stores even carry toys, games and puzzles that appeal to adults.
HABA is proud that Dancing Bear carries our family of brands and if you're ever in the Hendersonville or Asheville area in North Carolina you have to stop in!
