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.

The Perfect Costume

Halloween is just around the corner.  Perhaps you haven’t yet started looking for a Halloween costume, but you need to get crankin’. If you have small children, you are probably overwhelmed by the variety of Halloween costumes.  Should you go for the latest costume? Like Angry Birds or Captain America? Or go for something more classic? Like a pirate or a princess?  Parents, will you dress up for Halloween?  This is an opportunity to spend some quality time with your child, why not make it fun and dress up too?  Ty’s Toy Box has a vast selection of costumes, allowing your child to participate in the shows that they so often enjoy.  Yo Gabba Gabba is truly a unique TV show, why not go out on a limb and wow all of your friends? Ty’s Toy Box has Yo Gabba Gabba costumes in both child and adult size, and 6 different characters from which to choose.  Will you be Plex or Muno? Toodee or Brobee? Foofa or DJ Lance Rock?  The possibilities are endless.

Not only are the possibilities endless, but your dollar will stretch a little further on Ty’s Toy Box’s website.  You can expect prices to be anywhere from $5-$10 cheaper than the average costumes if you order from our website.

So what if you’re not ready to make the commitment to wearing a Yo Gabba Gabba costume, you might ask? No worries. We have plenty of other costumes to choose from, including Ben 10, Strawberry Shortcake, Super Why, Dinosaur Train, and Olivia the Pig. Mothers and daughters, you can dress alike as Strawberry Shortcake and Lemon Meringue.  For boys we have Ben 10 Alien Force, with a variety of costumes from which to choose.  Don’t let this holiday overwhelm you.  Treat your kids, impress your friends, and trick-or-treat in style!

Yo Gabba Gabba! Brings Funky Fun To Jimmy Fallon

Did you see Yo Gabba Gabba! on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night? We did. And we loved it!

DJ Lance Rock and his crew of Gabba characters teamed up with Fallon’s house band The Roots for a unique late night performance. Together they got the crowd grooving to Kool and The Gang’s funky tune “Spirit of the Boogie.”

Even though we’re used to enjoying Yo Gabba Gabba! on Nick Jr. with our kids a lot earlier than 11:30 at night, it was still a perfect performance parents could secretly have fun watching too — while the little ones where fast asleep.

Want to join the Gabba party? Your family can get in on the fun with new Yo Gabba Gabba! Music Is Awesome Vol. 2 CD. It features all the favorite and educational sing-alongs kids love, plus guest appearances from many other rock, pop and dance music artists, such as Jack Black, Weezer and MGMT.

As a special offer, you can buy the new Music Is Awesome 2 CD right here on Ty’s Toy Box for just $8.99 until Friday, September 3 at midnight.

What did you enjoy the most about Yo Gabba Gabba!’s performance on Jimmy Fallon? Did you let your kids stay up and watch the show with you? Do you think Kool and the Gang will be on Vol 3? Let us know in the comments below.
