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: for $10, you get $20 worth of modern and classic toys at Zippity Zoom Toys.
With a variety of brands such as Lego, Schleich, and Melissa & Doug, Zippity Zoom Toys dispenses playtime accessories that tickle the imagination and creativity of toddlers, kids, and their parents. Kids can tell time by realizing it doesn't exist or by sporting a nifty Lego watch ($26.99+), and harnessing a marshmallow-shooter toy gun allows them to accent cups of hot cocoa from a distance ($19.99+). Kids of all ages find hours of crafty fun and stress relief with magnetic Buckyballs ($26.99+), and a bath squirters toy set from Alex assures all tiny tots' bath times are spent well ($11.99). Parents may also pick up Automoblox ($11.99+), which assemble and disassemble, fostering creativity while developing motor skills and problem-solving abilities. To ensure a stock of the highest-quality toys, Zippity Zoom Toys' expert staff carefully select each item to grace shelves and to come to life at night to change burned-out light bulbs.
Zippity Zoom Toys
When Tracy and Derek opened Zippity Zoom Toys in 2009, they pinky swore never to sell "junk." The child-savvy couple hand selects each toy that gets shelved at their store, exercising a special fondness toward classic toys that never become passé with kids. Open seven days a week, Derek and Tracy believe that in an age of smartphones and other high-tech "adult playthings," a trip to the toy store should also delight grownups, since encountering a timeless toy can transport them back to childhood without pedaling a Big Wheel fast enough to open a time portal.
