Treat October Like December

WHY SHOP EARLY?

Everybody Wants TOYS!

During the holiday season there is a high demand for toy favorites that make their way on to kids’ wish-lists. Our 2020 Holiday Catalog is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and showing up this month!

We are over-ordering to make sure that our shelves are stocked with the best in toys, books and games.

But we’ve found some manufacturers are running at one half their usual capacity and reordering a popular item isn’t always possible. Shipping has been unreliable too.

WHY SHOP EARLY?

Local Businesses Need Your Help!

Small businesses are still trying to catch up from spring closures and the drop in business that we experienced.

This year we are hoping to spread out holiday shopping to make things safe and more pleasant for YOU AND our staff. And shopping this month makes the holidays WAY less stressful for you already-busy moms!

Giving you the individual attention and service you expect, when you visit the Learning Tree, is at the top of our list!

WHY SHOP EARLY?

Stress-Less Holidays!

We’ve already started offering holiday wrapping! Besides safe in-store shopping, we are happy to shop with you via video chat and of course you can shop online 24/7.

Curbside pick-up and local delivery are available. Shipping is an option too!

Watch for email and Facebook and Instagram posts that announce special window shopping, scheduling private shopping appointments, Stocking Bundles, and more to make your holiday shopping go smoothly!



Want to receive the really BIG Holiday Catalog in your mailbox? Click here to add your name to our ever-so-safe, private mailing list or call 913 385-1234 and we’ll help you.

Our Holiday Catalog issue is our flagship piece! The Holiday Catalog represents our collective best choices for toys, books and gifts. It will start wish lists, get dog-eared and have kids dreaming of a magical season.

Pssst, it also has coupons to stretch your holiday shopping dollars!

 

Please contact us if you have a special request or need. Unique birthday gifts, party favors, classroom goodies, travel toys, family games and puzzles are our specialty!

Dear Learning Tree Friends,

We want our everyone to stay healthy and well – Learning Tree Friends, our staff and our families.

The Learning Tree is making changes to continue serving our customers and to keep our local neighborhood toy store business going. We need each other!

Like everyone, we are cleaning and then cleaning again. We’ve put away all play tables and demos. All in-store activities are suspended.

We have amazing products to help keep the whole family busy. We have a wonderful assortment of games, puzzles, books, workbooks, craft and science kits. And outdoor toys to help release some of that pent-up energy once the sun comes out!

Birthdays are still on the calendar. Easter will be here before we know it. With all the stress out there, we hope we can help keep the special times special!

We want to remain your resource for our community in a safe way so please read our plan (as of today) below. We are here to help in any way we can. If you have a special request, we’ll do our best. We appreciate your patience while we settle into and tweak these new services. We’re open to thoughts and suggestions.

Stay healthy and well. We miss you and thank you for supporting the Learning Tree, your neighborhood toy store!

The 11th Annual Learning Tree Kid’s Flea Market
Corinth Square Shopping Center
Saturday, May 25th
$10/Kid’s Flea Market Ticket

Calling all young entrepreneurs! It’s time to register for your space at the Learning Tree Kid’s Flea Market.

Here’s your chance to run your own business for a few hours and to do a little spring cleaning in the playroom. Families work together to plan, decorate and set up their reserved area on Flea Market morning – creating fun, kid decorated “booths.”

Kid-trepreneurs sell their outgrown and gently used toys, books and games. Some sell their handmade crafts. They price their merchandise, offer bargains and handle the money!

It’s a family neighborhood event whether you are selling or buying. Best part? When the flea market closes, any unwanted items will be loaded on to the Operation Breakthrough truck and donated to other kids in need.

Your $10 registration ticket provides:

  • A reserved “booth” spot (approx. 6′ x 6′ of space)

  • Promotion for the event to get lots of customers to your “booth”!

  • A $10 coupon to be used in the store on Saturday, the 25th!

  • A chance to make some spending money, to raise funds for a charity, or to put a little something away for a rainy day!

  • The opportunity to leave unsold items as a donation to Operation Breakthrough!

We love being your local, neighborhood toy store. That’s why this family-friendly, community happening has become our favorite event of the year!

We reserved our space for the flea market...now what?
