Home Newsroom 261. The 12 Toys of Christmas at Learning Express

Christmas is one week from today and, if you still have shopping to do, it’s almost crunch time.  To help you find great gifts for the kids on your list this year, I asked Learning Express Toys to let us in on their hottest holiday gift items for 2010.  Learning Express has stores in both Barrington and Lake Zurich and the local owner, Rick Derr, says the toys you’ll find at their stores are for more than just play time.  “Well-designed toys are fun to play with and they also develop creativity and important life skills like strategy, cooperation, and collaboration.”  So grab a pen, paper, your coat and your wallet and head out to Learning Express to check out their “12 Toys of Christmas”.
