Earth Explorer Toys is turning 10 and celebrating with a day-long party July 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will take place at the store, 27 E. Pine Street. Families will enjoy a range of games, a scavenger hunt, prizes, costume character visits, special sales and more.
At 10 a.m., there will be Play Mobil tables set up for building followed by a visit from Calico Critter’s Mrs. Fisher Cat from 1 to 4 p.m. Throughout the day there will be balloon animals, crafts, glitter tattoos, hair chalk and a variety of fun contests and games. The store will also be giving away prizes all day long, including a Calico Critter tree house, discounts on Play Mobil purchases and more.
Also that day, the store will host a “Rocking Downtown Zionsville” scavenger hunt for painted rocks. Clues to each rock will be on the store’s Facebook page at facebook.com/earthexplorertoys and available in the store. Participants who locate a rock and bring it in receive a prize (one prize per family.) Pictures of the winners holding their rock will be posted on Facebook so others will know when a rock is found. The grand scavenger hunt prize is a $50 Earth Explorer Gift Certificate and participants can enter to win at the store even if they don’t find a rock.
Earth Explorer Toys will also be showcasing their new LockerLookz line, which just arrived in the store last week. LockerLookz allow students to decorate their lockers with an array of accessories including magnetic wallpaper, shag rugs, magnetic clocks and pen holders and even chandeliers! The popular line sold out last year. Students can design their lockers online – or on the store’s computer – and then buy their items at Earth Explorer Toys.
“It’s hard to believe we’ve been making children and families happy here in Zionsville and beyond for 10 years,” says Terri Bracken, owner of Earth Explorer Toys. “We’re so proud to be a part of the Zionsville and greater Indianapolis community and I’m amazed and how we’ve come from just a bricks and mortar store to now having a vast presence online.”
