Rainbow Loomers We Need Your Help

Moms and Dads and all our Rainbow Loomers.

We need your help.

We have a close family friend who is battling Brain Cancer right now and her daughter who is 9 wants to make a difference and do something for her mom and raise money for a cancer charity. She has been making and selling Rainbow Loom Bracelets in our community. Her first night in her neighborhood she raised over $210.

How you can help

It’s easy! If your children have any bracelets in drawers sitting around (they tend to make more than we can wear, don’t they?), would you be kind enough to please donate them so our friend’s daughter can sell them to raise more money for charity?

Tag Along Toys will be accepting donations of bracelets over the next month and is inviting kids in to Loom on Thursday and Friday nights to also help her make bracelets. We are setting up mini factory in store to help her with the bracelet making!

Feel free to stop by the store anytime and drop off any of your wonderful creations.

Your support is greatly appreciated.image

Tegu Magnetic Wooden Blocks

Tegu Magnetic Wooden Blocks
I personally feel that I have found one of my favourite Wooden Blocks.
Tegu blocks are wooden blocks with magnets built inside the block,therefore making it safe for children as young as 3 months old.
There are many different sizes of Tegu sets available and colours available. There are Tegu cars with wheels that can be built over and over.
We just started carrying them this spring and they have been well received by customers. Some feel the price is high but we explain to them the safety aspect and the Tegu Philosophy and they are sold.
I love any Toy that is open ended and let’s children be creative and explore. This product is a must see.
We have one on display in store so come try it out anytime.
I think you will find Tegu to be a fabulous product too.image
