Puzzling for SPEED ... and gift certificates!


So...  how fast are your jigsaw puzzle skills?

This week, come to Once Upon a Toy in Edwardsville or LagoonaMagoo Toys in Clayton and get puzzled!  We're timing you...  or your family or small group (no more than 5 people, please) as you complete a 63 piece jigsaw puzzle.  Fastest time in each store wins a $25 gift certificate!

We're running the competition through Saturday, Feb. 2nd.  We can't wait to meet the fastest puzzlers around!

And to keep the fun going at home, we're offering 15% off all jigsaw puzzles, too!

Are you ready?  On your mark...  Get Set...  


Thank You and So Long from LagoonaMagoo

After 18 years in the Fairview Heights area, the doors to LagoonaMagoo Toys are now closed.

We worked so very hard to make our Fairview Heights location a success. Sadly, the operating costs were too high and the store was not profitable. So for the health of our other locations, we’ve needed to close LagoonaMagoo Toys in Fairview Heights. While we’re sorry to see the end, it is a necessary sorrow.

We want to thank each and every one of you who has supported us in this difficult decision. And we want to thank all of our wonderful customers and friends who have supported us for so many years. We hope you’ll travel north on 159 to Edwardsville and see us at Once Upon a Toy. If you’re over in the Clayton area, we’d love to have you pop in and say “hello” at our new LagoonaMagoo Toys.

If you have gift certificates or store credits, you can redeem them at Once Upon a Toy in Edwardsville or the LagoonaMagoo in Clayton. If you can’t make it to these stores, call Once Upon a Toy at (618) 656-9596 and we’ll see if we can make other arrangements for you.

Again, Thank You.

The End is Near! Are you Ready?

Slowly but surely we're getting the LagoonaMagoo Toys in Fairview Heights emptied out.  We've reached a point where *slowly* isn't what we need.  Now, we need things to zip, zoom, fly, hustle, and dash out the door.  Starting today, everything in the store is now 40% off.

And we still have fixtures available, too.  We've posted an album on facebook:  Fixtures for Sale
If you're interested in any of them, call LagoonaMagoo at (618) 628-9270 or stop by.  

There are only a handful of days left, so don't wait!


Ooops! Correcting Times for the Kindermusik Playdates

In our previous post we said there would be *two* sessions for the Kindermusik Playdates.  That's not right...  For now we are only offering one.

So the correct time for the upcoming playdate on Dec. 10 is:

The times for the rest of the playdates have been corrected and can be seen here:  2013 Playdate Schedule at Once Upon a Toy

We are sooo sorry for any confusion!
