Sarasota residents celebrated Neighborhood Toy Store Day Saturday, Nov. 10, at Children’s World. The event, celebrated nationwide by independent toy stores, was a celebration of local toy stores and their relationships with the community.
The celebration included free entertainment, including balloon animals, free giveaways, contests, games and other activities. Children’s World donated 20% of the day’s profits to Toys for Tots, and the store will also serve as a collection point for the charity throughout the holiday season and will provide something special for those who contributed.
