Lift-Off Rocket is Toy Of The Week!

When kids come into our store, we notice that they gravitate towards certain toys and the Lift-Off Rocket by Early Learning Centre is a toddler magnet! This is a great gift for any pre-schooler.

Lift Off Rocket They love the little astronauts and their faithful astro dog. The moon buggy keep them busy rolling around on the floor. The rocket comes with a lot of interesting pieces and parts for them to play with for hours. There’s even an alien to discover and befriend. Toddlers love noises and they can press the button to hear the lift off sequence, realistic rocket sounds and see the boosters light up.

The Lift Off Rocket is a big 17 inches tall, with a cockpit area that lets little ones imagine the thrill of blasting into space. The living area has all the comfort and security of home with sleeping and kitchen areas. The space buggy fits into the cargo hold and they can use the ramp to drive it up into the rocket to await the count-down.

Three doors keep everything secure during space travel – or a car trip to grandma’s house. There’s even a handle for take-along fun. This rocket uses 2 AA batteries, which are included.

We know that this toy from Early Learning Centre is safe and durable and it lets toddlers use their wonderful imaginations. This is so much fun for your toddler it’s like a whole toy box full of toys!

This one gets our Toy Experts’ stamp of approval!

AND this week it’s 20% off! Get it here…

Let’s Pajaggle! It’s 20% Off This Week

We’ve got a great new Toy Of The Week this week.


Pajaggle Board Game

Pajaggle is a board game with small plastic pieces (NOT for kids under 3!) that you fit into the board. You can play more than 10 different games with it. It requires lots of concentration to match the pieces to the socket openings in the board.

Each piece matches only 1 socket. There are also “doublers” which are pieces that fit inside of other pieces. But most of all, don’t pajiggle! That’s when you put the wrong piece in a socket.

We have the game set up in our store and we can’t stop playing it! Our customers have had a lot of fun with it too.

You can play by yourself or with friends because you can race against the clock or each other.

Another great thing about it…it’s made in the USA.

Here’s How To Play…

1. Lay out the pieces.

2. Select a piece and place it into the matching socket

3. Place the center Pajaggle piece as the last piece into the board.

4. Yell “Pajaggle” and you win!

But that’s just one way to play. The game set includes different games including Block-n-Bridge and Triad.
