The Broken Toy Life

Obviously, every time you come into open play, sign up for memberships, attend our special events or spend any of your hard earned money at our door you help our business. It means one step closer to helping us bridge the gap between debt and profit. We are extremely grateful for all the support and we love seeing all your faces when you come in. We wish we could know all of you as well as we know some of you.

The other obvious is that being a play space we have challenges. Our biggest every day challenge is what we call the broken toy life. How are these mini us strong enough to be ripping off hinges on doors? And how do they manage to find things that fit in holes they don’t belong in? Or why do they keep decapitating the dolls? And why are there always balls missing? We are in shock. Like the emoji shock face.

We try to replace or fix the toys as quickly as possible, but the kids have us out numbered.

Broken Toy Life

Here’s how you can help.

Donate your gently used toys to us – Many of you have asked, but it has never been formally answered by us. YES, we will take your gently used toys. Bring them in and we’ll clean and put out on the floor what we can use. However, please be aware what we are unable to use will either be donated, trashed or re-sold (mostly so we can generate funds to replace toys).

Replace a toy for under $25 – Want to help us one step further? Check out our amazon replacement toy list. For under $25 you can help us replace a toy that your child and many other children will enjoy. We have many other high priced items on our wish list and if you can knock out some of these lower priced items it will bring us one step closer to buying those really unique toys for your children to enjoy.
