We at Tums 2 Tots Online get invited to some amazing launches and events all over South Africa. Whenever we do, we will share it with you here under Things To Do! New stores, new venues, restaurants, shows, anything we know about – you will know about. This past week Toy Kingdom launched a new store in Boksburg and the gorgeous Lindi Mogale attended with her boys on our behalf. Here’s what she has to say about it…
What a fun way to spend a Friday afternoon! Toy Kingdom has opened a new branch in the refurbished Eastrand Mall in Boksburg, and we were fortunate enough to be invited to pop in. I took along my 2 boys (TheHeir and TheSpare as they are affectionately named online), as I figured the best way to test out a Toy Store is to take along experts on the subject. The experts enjoyed their visits to the store and gave the stamp of approval.
The Toy Kingdom launch was characterised by drummers at the door and the most awesome mechanical dinosaur, which was a great hit with both kids and adults. There was some live children’s show characters, both the boys and I took lots of pictures with the various characters. There was a variety of activities and toys to keep the interest of both of my kids. TheHeir, who is 9 year old, loved the displays of LeapPads right in front of the door. TheSpare, who is 2 years old, discovered that there is such a thing as a LEGO table, now he wants one.
The Toy Kingdom store layout makes it easy for you to find toys relevant to each age group. There was a selection of toys in each section that the kids could play with and experience – I think this was the best part for most of the kids at the launch. I personally loved the LEGO section, it has a comprehensive selection and even had some sets I hadn’t seen before, which was really cool. For the toddlers there is great special on the LeapPad – check it out.
Toy Kingdom caters for the varied tastes of the all different age groups. There are some amazing launch savings on offer, so go stock up on those gifts for special occasions.
