More Than Fun and Games 



We have been super busy getting ready for a great summer season. Wait until you see all the fun summertime toys we discovered at the American Toy Association's Annual Toy Conference in Baltimore. We spent 5 dizzying days learning about all the new and exciting toys coming to market in time for summer and the holiday season.


In addition, we are gearing up for the new summertime sessions we plan to offer at our store this summer. See below for more details. 


We are getting close to our 1 year anniversary. Be sure to save the date for our big anniversary party happening on August 11th. But another important date to remember is July 7th, when we will be having a huge independence day sale to make room for all the toys we bought in Baltimore!


Finally, we have a special coupon for you to use, check it out at the bottom of the newsletter!


Until then, go out and play!

Toy Predictors Class at RPS starts next week...

We are offering a Toy Predictor Session for children to come in and be the first to test out toys and games and predict whether or not they will be a hit or a bust. We will feature their predictions in the store, on our Facebook page and in our newsletter. 

We plan to even have a recommended by section in our store just for this class, featuring the testers with their photo! It should be lot fun and give the children a sense of purpose and a opportunity to engage with other children. The class will be led by Kim Panton, co-founder of Rock Paper Scissors.

The RPS Team Challenge Happening at RPS This Summer...

We've worked hard to put together our first ever RPS Team Challenge Club. After attending an inspiring presentation by Tony Wagner, we put our thinking caps on and came up with the idea to offer project based, team building classes for children of all ages. 


Each week your child will be faced with a challenge they must work out with other children as a team player. The intent is to develop team building skills, strategic thinking, problem solving, and understating the principle of risk taking - making mistakes to eventually find a solution.  The class will be taught by Heather Fahey, M.Ed, LCSW.


Session 1, from June 25th to July 23rd, cost is $110


Session 2, from July 30th to August 27th, cost is $85 (no classes held the week of August 13th)


Tue: 10-10:45 Grades 1 and 2

Wed: 10:00-10:45 Grades 3, 4 and 5
