We are preparing for the first big weekend in 2018!
Don't miss the 28th Annual Patriots Day Celebration weekend in Ogunquit. The activities include parades, concerts, shopping, treasure hunts and more. For more information visit the Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce
We invite you to our Melissa & Doug Toy Tester (Pet Play) Experience! Come join us for a special, interactive experience sure to launch kids’ imaginations and provide parents with new perspectives on the power of play!
On April 14th and April 15th we’re transforming our store into a Toy Testing Lab, where kids ages 3+ become official Melissa & Doug Toy Testers for the day, using the power of their imaginations to test out four Melissa & Doug toys, share their feedback, and discover the joy of coming up with new ways to play! Plus, they will go home with Inspiration Kits full of ideas and activities to keep the fun going!
Melissa & Doug believe that toys should be a launch pad for imagination and wonder. And we are so excited to join them on their mission to Take Back Childhood and give kids more unstructured time and space to imagine, create, explore, and think!
SPECIAL SPRING SURPRISE
Enjoy 20% off all Melissa and Doug items in stock.
