It’s no secret that your neighborhood toy store gives back to the community, especially to local schools. Grandrabbit’s Toy Shoppe in Denver, Colorado is no exception, giving an estimated $25,000 annually to area schools through their Bunny Bucks for Schools program.

Toy stores are a major part of any small community. They create a place in this big grown-up world where kids rule and can learn freely through play.

I was a lucky kid....when I was younger, my father was manager of a locally owned independent toy store in upstate New York.  I loved coming to see Dad at work and try out all the different toys.   I wandered the store for hours, looking at every doll, musical instrument, book, and game--the place was a wonderland of fantasy and imagination!   The store was interactive, so children were allowed to try out puzzles, games, cars, and building blocks.  There was even a small tent in the book section, where children could go inside and read their just-purchased books. Many a Nancy Drew and Bobbsey Twins book was read in that tent!
