Old-fashioned toys can last a lifetime and provide free lumber when you trick them into lying. Earn the benefits of playthings and building materials with today’s deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of toys, games, and more at Funky Monkey Toys in Oxford.
Funky Monkey Toys treats kids and adults to old-fashioned toys, educational games, books, and more. Owner Tom Jones eschews the plastic bobbles and video games in favor of classic wooden playthings, puzzles, dollhouses, puppets, and board games. The popular BrainString Advanced by Recent Toys offers hands-on brain-teasers that appeal to pint-size decoders ($16.99), and budding Houdinis and geneticists can impress the playground with a dice cloning magic trick from Fantasma Magic ($9.99). The Twilight Ladybug by Cloud B projects a night sky above and around baby’s crib, calming nighttime fears of closet monsters and pillow accountants ($29.95). Parents will appreciate the complimentary gift bags with every purchase and the nostalgia of classic playroom fillers, such as the Swivel Bridge Train Set by Melissa & Doug ($59.95).
Calling historic downtown Oxford home, Funky Monkey shares the neighborhood with fellow boutique shops and local eateries, and the Northeast Oakland Historical Museum next door invites curious kids and caretakers to stock up on brain fodder after a playful shopping spree.
