Beach Time!

Summer is almost here, which means that many of us are gearing up for an annual family vacation! If this is your child’s first trip to the beach, or if your trip will be a particularly long one, you may want to consider bringing along his or her favorite friends:

Before packing for your trip, read Olivia Learns to Surf together to get your child in the mood for a vacation and then let your little girl try on her Disney Princess swimsuit before she packs it in her suitcase. Don’t forget a hat to block those harmful sun rays! If your child is a fan of Yo Gabba Gabba! you can have this Brobee bucket hat personalized!

You can purchase beach towels featuring all your child’s favorite characters—Strawberry Shortcake, Super Why!, Ben 10, and Caillou. (Those can all be personalized, as well!) Before you leave, pack a good beach bucket like this Thomas & Friends tin pail. And then put together a healthy lunch and grab your child’s Clifford lunch box to bring it along.

To keep it all together, toss it in a big, linen bag like The Wiggles Summer Fun Tote Bag and head out the door! Now, on a family vacation, a day at the beach, or a sunny day in the park, your child can have all their favorite friends along for the adventure.

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.
