Help this local toy store celebrate a holiday organized by the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association to encourage mom-and-pop toy shops to do something special. This Oak Park establishment is marking the day with games, crafts, prizes, a photo booth, raffle and a Hit Mit Challenge. "For a $5 donation," according to promotional materials, "you’ll get a tattoo and proceeds benefit Parenthesis (a non-profit that provides parenting and family support). Also, set aside time to make an ornament for the shop’s tree at the Brookfield Zoo Community Tree Trim, and don’t forget to write your family’s name on a paper strip which will become part of a chain wrap for the tree." Also on tap: face painting from 10 a.m. to noon, balloon sculptures from 2 to 4 p.m., and a yo-yo demo and workshop from 1 to 4 p.m.
