Adventures with Strawberry Shortcake

You won’t find a better place to prepare for Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Bitty Adventures than with Ty’s Toy Box!  We offer a vast selection of Strawberry Shortcake items.  We have both old and new styles, from the classic vintage Strawberry Shortcake cloth doll with blue eyes and red yarn hair, to the more modern sleek and sophisticated Strawberry Shortcake complete with accessories.  You can style her hair or decorate her outfits with ladybug charms.  You can’t go wrong either way that you choose, and why not purchase more than one?  One for you and one for a friend.

We also have picnic sets of Strawberry Shortcake with good friends, like Lemon Meringue and Raspberry Tart.  The play set includes mini scented figurines and as well as mini chairs, sandwiches, and a pie. Isn’t your imaginary appetite already starting to grow?

Let’s not forget the newest addition to Strawberry Shortcake’s circle of friends, who’s making news on CNN, Cherry Jam! Both Strawberry Shortcake and Cherry Jam love to sing together. However, Cherry Jam is very down to earth, and does not let the fact that she is a star get to her head.  Ty’s Toy Box also has Cherry Jam T-shirts, so you won’t want to miss out.

Also, with the holidays just around the corner, we have stocked up on Strawberry Shortcake items.  We have Christmas stockings, and apron and chef hat for your little chef to help out in the kitchen, as well as a growth chart to measure their growth. Don’t forget, all three of these items are able to be personalized with your little one’s name.  Either way you choose, let the adventures begin!

The Wiseness of Super Why!

Perhaps, like me, you’re wondering why Super Why has made a splash in the cartoon industry.  And why not? With all of the cartoons out there, how is this one different from any of the others?  Well, it may interest you to know that Super Why was created by the creators of Blues Clues, in order to improve critical reading skills in children from ages 3-6.  Approximately 20%-30% of children have difficulty reading. With attention spans decreasing more and more each day, it is critical to improve these skills by any means possible.  Super Why presents these reading concepts in a fun and exciting way.

For even more fun and interaction with Super Why, visit the PBS website.  In one of the games, you can even make a cake and pick different toppings to put on the cake. Whatever topping you pick to put on the cake, you have to spell. It’s pretty neat stuff, and I’m sure that your child will get a kick out of it, even if it’s just to work on his or her spelling, in a fun and interactive way.

If your little one is craving a little piece of Super Why to take home, consider buying him or her a gift that you an actually personalize on this website. For Christmas we have Super Why! Super Readers Christmas Stocking and the Super Why! Farewell to Santa Ornament.  Of course we also have the classic Super Why! Action Figure as well as Super Why! Style and Pose Wonder Red Doll, the superstar version of Red Riding Hood.

Gear up for Ben 10

 

Slap on your Omnitrix and prepare to morph into alien form with Ben 10!  Ben 10 episodes are still being aired on Cartoon Network.  A little hint: go to Cartoon Network‘s site where you can even play and even build your own Ben 10 game!

Speaking of which, if you have a devoted little fan, we have specialty holiday items like Ben 10 Omnitrix with Silhouette Black T-shirts (pictured above), Alien Web Wall Clocks, and the Ultimate Ben 10 Christmas stocking, all of which you can easily personalize, up to 9 letters.

Or, how about creating your own alien in the Ben 10 Alien Creation Laboratory! With the push of a button you can watch arms, legs, heads, and torsos come together. How cool is that?  You can create aliens like Ultimate Spidermonkey, Nanomech, Wildvine, and Benwolf.

If your hands are craving even more attention, consider our Ultimate Alien Vehicle sets.  They include Ben’s Wing Fighter, Kevin’s Rocket Pod, or Gwen’s Vortex Helicopter.  Each set comes with an action figure as well as the vehicle.  Collecting all three vehicles creates the new Rustbucket III, complete with missiles for the ultimate battle against evil!

One more thing to consider for your Ben 10 fan is the Ben 10 Alien Force Gift Set. It includes a little bit of everything with a Swampfire Alien Rock, Spidermonkey Planetary Powder, Chromastone Alien Creature action figure, Humungousaur Mini Basketball and the Ben 10 Omnitrix Duel for Power Game.

Caring with the Care Bears

If you are thinking of a fun cuddly friend to curl up with for the holidays, look no further! The Care Bears are timeless furry friends that will never leave you alone.  The care bears were created in 1981 as part of American Greetings for use in their greeting cards, and are still going strong today.

Take for instance Grumpy Bear. Grumpy Bear is often always complaining about something and grumbling nonsense words to himself. However, beneath his rough exterior we suspect a genuinely caring bear with a kind heart.

Funshine Bear has a bright yellow sun for his belly badge and likes to bring the sunshine wherever he goes. He is the opposite of Grumpy Bear and treats everyone like a good friend.  He likes fun, games, and joking.

Then there’s Share Bear, who is purple and has curly hair.  She freely passes out hugs and carries around a bag of lollipops to-you guessed it-SHARE them!

Cheer Bear’s belly badge speaks for itself. With her rainbow belly badge and personality you can always count on her to give you a hug or cheer you up whenever you need it most.

Last but not least, Oopsy Bear is very clumsy and often says, “Oopsie!” when he runs into things, but his friends don’t hold that against him. He is unique in that he can draw what he happens to be feeling on his belly.

Go to AGKidZone to check out more about these awesome bears and play some cool games!

Ty’s Toy Box offers the Care Bears in a water-friendly mesh fabric, which is good for the bath, pool, and beach.

Another unique gift opportunity is the Care Bears Tenderheart Bear Canvas Wall Art. This is an unframed square design that measures 16″ x 16″.  You may also personalize this gift, up to 9 characters. Your little one will feel special with their name decorating this Wall Art design.  You will also find countless Care Bear knick knacks such as notes and party favors.  Don’t wait until it’s too late to order these for the holidays.  As Cheer Bear herself suggested, “We don’t need to huff and puff, let’s get it done.”

Lovely Lovies

So Halloween is over and by now you’ve packed up all of your costumes for next year, or to pass along or give to Goodwill.  Thanksgiving is coming up, and then Christmas-the holiday season is upon us! In the meantime, it might be a good idea to start thinking about what gifts you will purchase for the holidays. Perhaps a nephew or niece of yours is going to be born soon, and you would like to get the perfect gift for him or her.  We all know that every baby needs the basics like a bottle, a crib, diapers, and baby food.  There is one gift that is very special and goes above and beyond the basics-a baby blanket or lovie.

Baby blankets have been around for hundreds of years. They offer security to babies when they go to sleep at night, when Mom or Dad cannot watch over them at night.  Lovies have also become very special in recent years.  Lovies are soft, huggable plush toys that can accentuate or replace a baby blanket.  Lovies are also a favorite among children. Children can take their lovies to different places and always carry something familiar with them.  Whether you are going to the mall or simply to a friend’s house, the child will have a sense of security about them.

Ty’s Toy Box can help to fill that need. Ty’s Toy Box offers a variety of lovies, with the chance to have each lovie customized with the baby or child’s name.  We offer free personalized embroidery for up to 9 characters.  Can you think of a more special way to honor your little one?

Perhaps your baby or child already has a blanket. If so, it’s not a bad idea to have more than one blanket or lovie, especially if the child’s first lovie becomes lost or needs to be washed.  If they love Yo Gabba Gabba or Olivia the Pig, this is even better! Ty’s Toy Box  offers a variety of lovies, with each character from Yo Gabba Gabba, as well as Olivia the Pig. The possibilities are endless, see for yourself.  We also offers cuddle pillows, plush toys, and Grab ‘N’ Sing toys that actually sing. Consider us a one stop shop for all your child’s bedtime needs. Purchase a lovie.  You will see the difference when your child rests more…peacefully.
