Looking for a unique place to shop with your children that is not only fun but educational as well?  Well, look no further.  Learning Express is the place for you.  Learning Express is a toy store that is dedicated to creating a lively and interactive shopping experience that will please not only the young but the young-at-heart as well.

Rainbow Loom

Have your children been talking up “Rainbow Loom” bracelets, the latest fad that is sweeping the nation?  Learning Express is basically the Rainbow Loom headquarters.  They have the latest rubber bands in all the colors, cool carrying cases, and even the loom itself.  Plus, they offer free classes on how to loom for beginners all the way up to an advanced level.

One of the coolest parts about buying your loom cases at Learning Express is that they offer free personalization.  You can walk out of the store with your brand new looming kit, a case of your own that is unique to you, and all the knowledge on how to make the perfect bracelet or necklace.  Every now and then these stores run out of the rubber bands or carrying cases, but no worries.  Learning Express is always stocked back up within a day or two and they call or email you to let you know the looming essentials are back in stock.

The Learning Express Shopping Experience

At Learning Express, the staff is always having fun and willing to help guide you in the right direction.  They will even help teach you how to use whatever unique game or toy you are purchasing.

This fun neighborhood toy store is a great meeting spot for friends and neighbors and is one of those great establishments where they remember you by name.  I know from personal experience that the staff always remembers you and is so great about calling you the moment a special item comes in.  They are always demoing the latest games or riding around on the Plasma cars.

The store is set up with toys and train tables, fantasy play, puzzles, cars, and hula hoops all for you and your kids to try out and play with as you shop your way through the store.  Learning Express is a friendly and hands-on atmosphere for the entire family.

When it comes to your child’s birthday, they can go in the store and pick out all the toys that they like and put them in a bin that then their birthday guests can go purchase for them.  Yes, a child’s birthday registry.  Aside from buying a totally unique and fun gift for the birthday boy or girl, the staff offers complimentary gift-wrap year round as well as free personalization.

Store Events

Every month Learning Express offers different events that are typically free store-wide.  You can visit the Learning Express website  to find a monthly calendar of events.  I know my kids love to go play around with the toys and get a tattoo or their face painted and I am happy as well because it doesn’t cost me a cent.

Some Unique Toys

Learning Express offers toys in all age ranges for boys or girls.  There are fun stuffed animals, books and puzzles, crazy science experiments, and an entire crafting section filled with unique and usable crafts for kids of any age.

The plasma cars are awesome.  I never miss an opportunity to zip down the driveway on my 4 year old son’s plasma car.

Learning Express always has the hottest toys of the year.  Last year was the remote controlled helicopter and this year it’s the rainbow loom bracelets.  Stop into the Learning Express today and you and your kids (of any age) will find yourselves never wanting to leave.
