Former Owner of Aunt Jean’s Toys and Treats has New Goodies!
One of our favorite destinations with our daughter in our hometown of Montclair is Church Street with its boutiques and cafes, which always gives us this feeling like we’re away on vacation in our own town.
One of our favorite stops on our stroll was Aunt Jean’s Toys and Treats, a colorful and inviting place for our little girl to stretch out her imagination and explore in a world of pretend play. Last summer I brought in some download cards of “Five Sea Lions” for Jeanette to consider selling in the store. What I didn’t know then was that Jeanette was planning to close the store and follow a related passion to take on a larger role in the creation, marketing and distribution of great products for kids.
So when I learned in the local papers and blogs that Aunt Jean’s was closing and what Jeanette wanted to do next, I felt how I was going to miss that happy little store, but I soon felt also that if she could do for our wares what she did to make her store so delightful, that we could team up and create a truly awesome family experience together. We’ve had great fun so far putting together a wonderful collection of kid-friendly products to offer, and we’re just getting warmed up! You’ll have a chance to meet Jeanette at our merchandise table at the Album Launch and Family Festival on Sunday at Just Jake’s.
We’ll be offering the items from our online store that bear the Jungle Gym Jam brand, including our new CD (autographed), youth sized tie-dye T-shirts, maracas, tambourines, and beach balls. We also have LED foam color light wands which are sure to be a hit with the kids!
