Melissa and Doug Sale

25% OFF Melissa and Doug

25%M&DYep, it’s that time again. All Melissa and Doug products are 25% off for the entire month of September. Get a jump start on the holidays with this awesome sale and don’t forget to take advantage of our free gift wrapping!

I wonder if there was ever a debate on making the name Doug and Melissa? I guess that doesn’t sound as good. Then again, maybe I think it doesn’t sound as good because I’m so used to hearing Melissa and Doug. Either way, you’re still getting the 25% OFF. :)


Janod Toys

official-janod-logoOne of our newest (and best) vendors of 2014 is a French company called Janod. We tested a few of their products and immediately  knew they were for us. These classic style toys are sleek, elegant and fun.  The Janod range is filled with delightful wooden, eco-friendly and educational toys for babies, toddlers and older kids. From puzzles and blocks to trains, and magnetic playsets, you’ll find everything you need to make playtime stylish, unique and fun for your little ones.


One of my favorite toys from Janod is the magnetic rocket ship.  For little ones 18 months and up, this rocket made from wood, and comes apart into 5 pieces, so not only is it a fun toy rocket ship, but it’s a great 3D toddler puzzle.

Janod Princess Wall Stickers
Another fantastic toy that will give your child hours of playtime is the princess magnetic wall castle. The castle sticks to the wall and adds a great accent to the room. It comes with 30 reusable stickers to inspire storybook creativity.

Magnetibooks are probably one of the coolest lines from Janod. There’s a wide range of themes for boys and girls. Not only do kid get to be creative, but toys like the Alphabet Magnetibook allow kids to have fun with letters. The Magnetibooks are self contained for easy storage. Check out the video below of Magnetibooks, and hurry in to Learning Express to check out this great line of toys!

Falls Pointe Frozen Event

Today our Falls Pointe location was visited by none other than Elsa and Anna from Frozen. It was so much fun for us and I hope everyone who came had a blast. We had people from all over the triangle area and even from longer distances like Baltimore! There were many of our regular Falls Pointe customers, but also many new faces. Hopefully you enjoyed your experience with us.

Elsa AnnaSeveral people asked me why we did the event. That’s easy. We didn’t do it to make money. We did it because it was fun. We did it because we love making children happy. We loved seeing the looks on their faces when they saw the princesses. There were moments when we were actually concerned for Elsa’s makeup because she was tearing up at seeing their excitement. We loved seeing everybody in costumes running around the store and singing “Let it Go!” (I even caught several staff members chiming in). We loved being part of the experience.

Thank you to our staff, not just in Falls Pointe, but in all of our stores for helping us pull off the event. Thank you to “Elsa” and “Anna” for doing such an amazing job. Thank you to our owner who supported us and let us have whatever we asked for to make this happen. Most of all, a very sincere thank you to all the wonderful people who came out to the event today. You’re the reason we’re here. Thank you for letting us be a part of your family’s life. I’m looking forward to hearing stories and seeing pictures of everybody!


See you soon!

PS, The princesses told me they had a great time, and that they would definitely be back soon!
