Like amateur magicians, childhood toys are full of old gimmicks and appear to wince when sawn in half. Enlist a dependable new plaything instead with today’s Groupon to The Magic Bean Toy Shoppe and Boutique. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of toys.
- For $75, you get $150 toward a children’s themed birthday party.
The Magic Bean stocks a vast collection of games, educational toys, and craft kits and bolsters make-believe with whimsical themed parties. Creative craftsters can splatter drab T-shirts and blanket forts with the Jacquard tye-dye kit ($15) or can grow and monitor their own mini veggie garden with an Our Garden root-viewer kit ($23.99). Younger tykes, meanwhile, explore culinary possibilities with a Melissa & Doug felt sandwich set ($21.99) or act out a play with a lion stage puppet ($23.99).
Alternatively, 2.5-hour themed birthday parties immerse birthday boys and girls in a interactive celebration with games, crafts, and music. Tinkerbell and Peter Pan greet revellers during the Neverland party, later teaching kids to craft and expertly brandish toy swords and fairy wands. Wonderland, meanwhile, welcomes pint-sized party-goers to a tea party, during which sugar-cube relays and games of pin the cup on the saucer encourage whimsy and balance the world’s giggle deficit. The Magic Bean supplies all party invitations, loot bags, and table amenities.
