ASTRA's Neighborhood Toy Store Month: Celebrating Local Toy Shops
ASTRA's Neighborhood Toy Store Month is a celebration of local specialty toy stores that offer unique, high-quality toys, emphasizing creativity, education, and joy. The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association recognizes the essential role these stores play in our communities. Local toy shops provide personalized assistance, promote developmentally appropriate play, and contribute to the local economy. ASTRA's Certified Play Expert program enhances staff knowledge about child development and the importance of play. Kazoodles, an active ASTRA member, proudly supports this initiative. This holiday season, support your local toy store, spread the word, attend special events, and experience the joy of giving while celebrating the essence of community and the wonder of local toy shops.
