Dollhouse and Toy Store Too on Hot Toys at Toy Fair 2015


Sari Powazek of Dollhouse and Toy Store Too in Scottsdale, Ariz., has been in  business since 1977 and has twice won the honor of being a TDmonthly Charity Giveaway store – in 2012 and 2013, and reported for TDmonthly at Toy Fair 2014. You could say she definitely knows what to do at Toy Fair.

"Our store is going up to 5,500 square feet with a 2,000 square-foot play area for toddlers to age 5 with their caregivers," said Sari. "Our community will benefit from age-appropriate games that I find at Toy Fair for moms, dads and grandpas to play with in this space."

MADAME ALEXANDER DOLL CO

"In case you have an extra $5K this limited edition Elsa from Madame Alexander is just for you," joked Sari. "Frozen's Elsa is beautiful, 21" tall with more than 5000 Swarovski crystals," decorating her outfit, she told us. 





PACIFIC PLAY TENTS

Sari was a fan of a new offering from Pacific Play Tents. "If you don't want to build a treehouse, Pacific Play Tents has great club house tent," she shared.
