Review of Craft Events at Toyland at Oxmoor Center

PhotobucketLast Saturday, I took my 5 year-old daughter to Toyland for their craft event. Toyland, located at the Oxmoor Center is a toy store, which offers different craft events every month. This month event was “Decorate your own Wooden Train, Race Car, Princess or Ballerina Doll”. The cost of the event was $5, which covered the cost of the materials.

We arrived at Toyland a little before the event started around 1pm. We were greeted by one of the store associates and were asked to choose a wooden toy to decorate. Claire who is into princesses obviously chose to paint a princess! All the wooden toys that kids could paint on that day were made by Melissa & Doug, one of our favorite brands!

The store associate took us to their craft table and showed us all the supplies Claire could use to decorate her princess: paint, stickers, crayons, glitter glue…
She started painting her toy along with about 7 other kids who were between 1 and 6. She took her time and after 30 minutes she had completed her task. She really enjoyed the craft and it was fun to do something fun just the two of us. We gave her doll to the store associate to let it dry and walked around the store to shop for a birthday gift for her little sister.

 On that day, they had a 25% off special on all Melissa & Doug toys, so we bought a few arts supplies.

I have to admit that I am one of those moms who does most of her shopping and especially toys online but after walking around the store with Claire I was pleasantly surprised to see the kind of toys they sell. They have a Lego section, Barbies, a lot of wooden toys, Melissa & Doug and a lot of our favorite brands. Their prices are very competitive too.

I also liked the fact that they had toys displayed in their store for the kids to play with. The staff was very helpful and nice. I would definitely go back to Woodland to shop and take the girls to their craft events.
