3rd Annual Neighborhood Toy Store Day 11-10-12

Think locally.   Here at ChiIL Mama we look local first, to support our neighbors and their shops.   Tomorrow, Sat 11-10-12 is particularly fun day to shop locally.   It's Neighborhood Toy Store Day!   This means fun give aways, swag bags, contests, game demos, coupons and more.  

Check out ChiIL Mama's top picks for Chi-Town toy and game fun for all ages:

ALL DAY - Win a $150 Cat & Mouse Shopping Spree
We'll have a series of mental challenges and brainteasers set out throughout the store.  For every conundrum you solve or challenge you beat, you'll receive a raffle ticket.  The more you earn, the better your chances to win the shopping spree!  We'll pick the winning ticket near the end of the day, 6:45pm sharp.

11:30 am - Word Frolic Game Show & Pizza Party
The makers of Word Frolic will be on hand to play the game that takes the mystery out of metaphors.  Every kid who plays will go home with a copy and enjoy some pizza, too!

3:00 pm - Hexbug Races
Start your engines, hexbugs!  Make sure your batteries are fresh and your Nano is feisty before you race it through a twisty track.  The owner of the zippiest bug will go home with a Hexbug Nano Glow base set!
