It’s the day after Christmas and the weather outside is frightful. We hope you are snug inside where it’s so delightful! This season has been so much fun for us and it’s all because of our wonderful customers. Thank you so much for choosing to shop with us. We hope you had a great Holiday season and a great 2012.

We hope you enjoyed your shopping experiences with us this year and that we put a smile on the face of your children. Get ready, 2013 is going to be a BIG YEAR for Learning Express (Trust me).
To our staff,
You guys rocked it this year! Thank you for your dedication and hard work. Those long nights were much appreciated. From the late night restocking to the Saturday before Christmas when our power was completely out and we were running off generators and handing customers flashlights, you made it happen. Enjoy this time with your families and get ready for a fantastic New Year.
Making the next generation better…one gift at a time.

Make this Christmas season a crafty one with some of our favorite holiday Shrinky Dinks! Learning Express employees love a good Shrinky Dink kit and it’s understandable why. This classic toy is easy AND fun. Just color the pieces and watch them shrink in the oven (with parental guidance, of course) before your eyes! Learning Express stocks multiple varieties, but we’re the most excited about these holiday editions:
- Elf on the Shelf: Based on the popular book, this kit features 50+ Shrinky Dinks and a two sided pop up playscape to play in. It includes everything to make spirits bright, including a 3D tree to decorate with glitter and stickers. It’s also a Learning Express exclusive, so they won’t be around for long!
- Holiday Tree: Decorate your own miniature Christmas tree with this kit. With an array of tinsel and trappings, you can make a fun craft today that will last in your family for generations. This kit includes a tree skirt, ornaments and star to make sure your Christmas tree is in tip top shape.
- Santa’s Workshop: Take a trip to the North Pole! Watch Mrs. Claus bake cookies and the elves test out the toys in this 3D playscape. This set includes a cardboard tree AND sleigh with reindeer for maximum Christmas fun!
Feeling sleepy? Goodnight North Pole is the perfect holiday bedtime story! Soothe your little ones to sleep with visions of sugarplums with this soon-t0-be cute classic.

…Blast off! Are you ready to soar to space? Well, we don’t have any spaceships, but Learning Express can help get you close with these awesome Flash Rockets. This super cool gift is easy to assemble and includes sticker decals for decoration. Designed for kids 10+, we’re currently stocking a variety of models, as well as their accessories.
Ted, the manager of our Durham location, had this to say about this sweet product:
“When we first received these in the store, I knew right away I was going to buy one for my 11 yr old son. I have also seen other dads come in and buy them for their sons, but I think they might actually be getting it as much for themselves as the kids. What better way to get some awesome father/son time than launching something hundreds of feet in the air and watching it parachute back down? And then doing it again and again?”
Soar on in today!
