Come to a Calico Critter Tea Party!

We Love Calico Critters! And we know you do, too.

Shawnta' & Julie had the chance to meet Mrs. Fisher Cat at Toy Fair this year. And of course, they invited her to come visit the Happy Up stores. We are totally thrilled to announce she accepted our invite!

So who is Mrs. Fisher Cat? She's the Mama of the Calico Critters Fisher Cat Family. They're some of the adorable residents of Cloverleaf Corners. And now you get to meet a life-sized Calico Critter!

Mrs. Fisher Cat will be at our Fairview Heights, IL LagoonaMagoo Toys on Sunday, May 22 starting at 11am. She'll be visiting with Calico Critter fans and saying hello to anyone who stops by until 2pm when our Tea Party starts.

Oh! You want to come to the Tea Party? We'd love to have you. Space is limited, so advance registration for tickets is required. Here's the nitty gritty info:

When: Sunday May 22, 2:00 - 3:30
Where: LagoonaMagoo Toys in Fairview Heights, IL
What: Tea Party with Mrs. Fisher Cat
Cost: $5.00 per ticket, advance reservations required

At the Tea Party we'll have snacks and super cute crafts. We'll also snap a pic of your child with Mrs. Fisher Cat and email it to you later.

To reserve your tickets, call the kindly critters at the store:
(618) 628-9270

On Sunday May 22, all Calico Critter items will be 10% off at our Fairview Heights LagoonaMagoo Toys. The store is located at 6308 N. Illinois (aka Hwy 159), right by McDonalds & Peerless Furniture.

Will Mrs. Fisher Cat be at our other stores? We hope she'll have time in her busy schedule to stop by. As of right now, we're unsure if she will or what times, so follow us on twitter @happyuptoys or like us on facebook. If Mrs. Fisher Cat will be in Edwardsville or at the St. Louis Mills, we'll announce it there.

See you in time for Tea on the 22nd!


Giganto-Huge Chart Sale Event!

We're cleaning house. We're re-arranging and shaking out the cobwebs. Spring has sprung, the world is starting new, and your favorite toy stores are all in a tizzy! Once Upon a Toy and both LagoonaMagoo Toy locations are having a massive, major, totally huge one-time only sale event next weekend. It's a ... drum roll, please...

What, you may ask, is a Chart Sale? Glad you wondered! Here's the idea: we're going to pull gobs of great toys, games, and other items and offer them at major discounts following this chart:

To make this event a success, each store will close early one day and then have expanded hours. Here's the Schedule:

Illinois Stores:

Once Upon a Toy in Edwardsville · LagoonaMagoo Toys in Fairview Heights:

Wed. May 4: Closing at 4pm to get everything ready
Extended Hours Thurs. May 5 - Sat. May 7: 8am - 9pm
Sunday May 8: Closed (Happy Mommy Day!)

**Last Day for Chart Pricing is Saturday May 7 in our Illinois stores! Don't miss it!**

Thurs. May 5: Closing at 5 pm to set the stage
Extended Hours!
Fri. May 6 - Sat. May 7: 9am - 9pm

**Absolute Last Day for Chart Pricing is Sunday May 8!  This is a one-time only event!**

Shop early for the best selection! You'll be surprised at all the really great items marked down, so don't wait. It's first come, first served, and once something sells out, it's gone.

This is an in-store only event-- which means chart pricing does not extend to our website.

See ya soon!
