The Learning Tree toy stores 913-385-1234

The Learning Tree crew was out in full force at the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association Marketplace & Academy in Denver, Colorado last week. We found fantastic NEW toy ideas to bring to you!

What else did we do besides hit the marketplace to find the NEWEST in toys? This four-day trade show and conference was packed with learning, hands-on exploration, and most of all, lots of FUN – because wherever you find toy people, you find FUN!

We learned about the latest trends in play and education from industry leaders during break out sessions. Lots of buzz about STEM and products designed for children with special needs.

Our afternoon of hands-on crafting and building with sequins, silk, blocks and circuits, was provided by manufacturers introducing their new-to-market kits. It’s easy to see why kids can spend hours of out-of the-box fun with kits!

Toy store owners are passionate about play and that was obvious when we got together for Game Night. This popular, round-robin evening had us hopping from table to table for quick play demonstrations to experience the great new game stars for the holidays, straight from the creators.

Our Favorite Finds from ASTRA Marketplace:

Frozen Science from Be Amazing!Toys, Splashlings, the new mini-mermaid collectable,

Pop Sockets


Pop Sockets, a snazzy phone accessory for gripping, propping, cord management and looking good,


Paddle Bubble




Spinballs, a set of yo-yo-like light up balls that create an amazing visual effect,






Paddle Bubble, an “ohhhh” inspiring game played with fabric covered paddles and a real soap bubble!
