Gift Shopping at Brilliant Sky Toys!!

How many of you have started shopping for holiday gifts? Yep, me too. I'm one of those people who likes to be ahead of the last-minute rush, so I already have lists started, gifts purchased, and an idea of what I still need. Today I wanted to share a great place to shop for gifts for your youngsters. Brilliant Sky Toys and Books is a wonderful specialty toy store that carries a multitude of toys, games and books for children of all ages. 

Brilliant Sky Toys and Books was founded in Lansing, MI in 2002. Brent and Sonia Taylor had a dream of opening/running the best and finest upscale specialty toy store, and I have to say, I think they succeeded in reaching their goal! The stores quickly expanded, and they now have over 15 locations across the country, with plans to open more in the near future. I, unfortunately, don't live near one of these stores, but I will be visiting on our next trip to the Chicago area-probably next month. From what I have heard, Brilliant Sky has the ultimate customer service, with people even going so far as to compare it with a concierge service!

No matter what your child's interests or age, you will be sure to find the perfect gift at Brilliant Sky Toys and Books. As an example of the kind of toys they carry, I received a Doinkit Darts Kit for review from Brilliant Sky. This is a super fun and super sturdy darts set for kids, and the family had a lot of fun playing darts together, as you can see from the pictures below.

You can turn magnetic darts into earrings too :)

So, be sure to see if there's a Brilliant Sky Toys and Books in your area. You can use the find-a-store page on their website to check!

    By the way, that photo of you on top of the blog (is that new?) looks really nice!
