Children are amused by the simplest of oddities, but surprising your brood with the neighbor’s iPhone only leads to texting while operating training wheels and befriending operators from 900 numbers. Surprise children with more age-appropriate enjoyment with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of children’s toys at Kidcore Toys in the Arlington Highlands Shopping Center. This deal is valid for in-store purchases only.
Kidcore Toys is a 2,200-square-foot, locally owned toy store that helps parents paint perpetual smiles on young ones’ faces with educational, wooden, and classic toys, among others. Backed by high-quality brands such as Melissa & Doug, Alex, Toysmith, and Playmobil, Kidcore Toys keeps kids captivated and collected without the injection of gummy-flavored knickknacks or thought-provoking paddywhacks to the fanny. Boost your budding scientist’s IQ with educational science kits such as My First Science Kit ($19.99), or encourage interactive learning with the Preschool Laptop ($29.99, inquire in-store regarding stock levels), outfitted with an operating system that makes Steve Jobs quiver in his whitewashed jeans. Encourage the fundamental life skills of handling firearms and flying fighter jets with the Vector Elite Fleet Backyard Flyer ($19.99), a free-flight-powered airplane. And if you sense that your kid is an instant classic, treat him or her to the ageless Sock Monkey ($16.99), a snuggable friend to play with and bury in the backyard next to your “lost” wedding ring.
Though entertaining a youngster remains a difficult task, the friendly staff at Kidcore Toys makes sure you find the number-one toy for your not-number-one favorite child. Kidcore even offers complimentary gift-wrapping for any item except children.
