This Saturday, Nov. 8, toy stores all across the nation will celebrate the joy of play with Neighborhood Toy Store Day. Created to launch the holiday shopping season, Neighborhood Toy Store Day praises local toy stores as a not just a small business, but as a vital part of the community.
While manufacturers gear up to capture the attention of shoppers, community toy stores focus on being involved in their local communities. Similar to HABA USA’s recent Take Time to Play campaign, Toy Store Day promotes family time.
The Take Time to Play campaign encourages families to get together and get the most of the holiday season, which is a great time to unplug and rediscover the power of play. Recent cultural shifts have seen an increase in “screen time” which is often a solo and un-educational activity.
This holiday season, HABA USA is urging families to put away distracting mobile devices and electronics in favor of getting back to basics with toys that are fun for the whole family. We invite you to support your local toy store this holiday season. Visit our store locator to find a HABA retailer nearest you!
