Licensed Merchandise from Ty’s Toy Box

Years ago, Ty’s Toy Box was an idea that sprang out of a need to find character products for the founders daughter that did not exist in the United States.  As we roll into the holiday season, we are reminded of our humble beginnings.  If you are looking for something special for your little on this holiday and they have a favorite character – like Thomas and Friends, Yo Gabba Gabba, Olivia or Super Why – we are working hard to locate and stock products for these characters that we represent on our site.  If you are having trouble finding what you seek, we would appreciate if you would contact customer service – either using our live chat, toll free number or email – and let us know what you seek.  If we do not have it now, we will look for it and see what can be done to locate the hard to find items.

Many of our items are specialty items that we create using print on demand technologies.  These items include hats, t-shirts, sweathshirts and any of the personalized items we offer on our site.  Even if you do not personalize the item, it is still printed on demand and will take a few more days to produce before we can ship you the item.  Please be aware that, as we enter the busy season, we are doing our best to print your items on the same day we receive the order.  If there is any question about our being able to deliver on your deadline, again, contact customer service and they can assist you with your purchase.  As we have more than one warehouse location, it is also possible that your order may be received in more than one shipment from us so if you get the book or dvd you ordered but have not seen the t-shirt yet, don’t panic, it is also on its way!

Thanks for your interest, your business – we appreciate your product and experience feedback!

Sesame Street still going strong, going green!

sesame-street-40-yearsIt’s hard to believe that Sesame Street turned 40 this past year, but it’s true. For forty years, kids across the country have been learning how to count, spell, and remember what they were supposed to buy at the grocery store. (A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter. I’m nearly as old as Sesame Street and I still remember!)

Of course, our furry pals on that famous street have been concerned about the environment for a long time, but even moreso now that things like global warming are on everyone’s minds. (Check out TreeHugger’s round-up of Sesame Street’s environmental videos for some fun.) But don’t worry—a recent National Geographic article stressed that issues are always presented in a “let’s take care of our planet” kind of way, not in a “hey kids, we’re destroying the earth!” manner. Heh.

As parents, we can feel like we’re doing some small part along with Sesame Street now by checking out the personalized Sesame Street shirts now available at Ty’s Toy Box—they’re all printed on organic cotton! Your kids get all of the friendly characters they love, and you get the all-natural fabric you want. Everyone wins!

Of course, there’s plenty of other goodies in the Sesame Street Store, just in case you need a giant Grover, or something. I don’t judge. (In fact, I kind of want one of those for my room. I suspect my husband will not agree, however.)

Congratulations on 40 awesome years, Sesame Street! Here’s to the next 40!

It’s a very Care Bears time of the year

care-bears-collageEverything old is new again, and the Care Bears are no exception. Yes, I remember them from my childhood—back in the Paleolithic Era, natch—and recently they’ve made a huge comeback. And why not? What’s not to like about colorful, cuddly teddy bears bringing a message and sharing and caring with friends? Nothing, that’s what. All of these “retro” toy lines coming back have staying power because kids love ‘em, and as a parent, it’s hard to argue with a cartoon promoting such great messages.

Did you happen to catch the Care Bears in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year? Yep, they were there! They did a bit of ice skating while Carly Simon sang. Not too shabby.

Psssst… there’s still time to order for Christmas! Visit the Ty’s Toy Box Care Bears Store for all of those hard-to-find Care Bears items you can’t get anywhere else. May I suggest the Bear Buddies DVD? It’s got eight never-before-seen episodes from the Adventures in Care-a-Lot Saturday morning show, and is a must-have for any Care Bears fan. And—of course—as you face down the days of holiday vacation, you may find the Official Care Bears Site has a few things to keep your little one busy. Just an idea.

‘Tis the season for all things Care Bears, and for all good things. Happy holidays from all of us here at Ty’s Toy Box!

The Veggie Tales gang has arrived at Ty’s!

Veggie TalesBroccoli… celery… gotta be…

… Veggie Tales!

Sorry, did I get that song stuck in your head? It is pretty catchy.

I’ve been a huge fan of Veggie Tales ever since Big Idea began—perhaps it’s something about talking, singing produce… or maybe it’s the great ideals behind the stories… but mostly I think it’s the Silly Songs. If you’re unfamiliar with Veggie Tales, perhaps you’ll enjoy one of our favorites:

(Usta!)

Anyway, I kind of have a thing for Veggie Tales, is my point. And now Ty’s does, too—check out the new Veggie Tales Store here at Ty’s Toy Box! Not only do we have a wide assortment of Veggie goodness, for a limited time you can use coupon code Veggie10 to take 10% off your $25+ order of Veggie Tales merchandise. I think Larry the Cucumber would approve.

Welcome to Ty’s, Veggie Tales! Now, about that water buffalo….
