Breyer Fun Day


June 11, 2011 - Breyer Fun Day was a HUGE success during the Celebrate Melrose promotion. Pal-O-Mine the horse was on the scene in downtown Melrose for some fun photo ops. All the kiddies who played our games and made our crafts went home with fun prizes, and the Limited Edition Breyer up for raffle is safe and sound with "Isabelle" at her home. It was a true pleasure to see the generations of Breyer Fans participate in our first Breyer Event. Thanks to all who helped!

Little Erasers are a Big Help

Erasers Help Japan

Apr. 2011 - With your help, all profits from sales of Japanese manufactured Iwako Products, maker of the incredibly popular "Japanese Eraser" (an eraser, toy, and puzzle all-in-one) stickers, and pencils, were donated directly to the American Red Cross to support the Japanese Tsunami Relief Effort. Thanks to all the little ones who saved up their pennies to help out another little one!

Toy Drive

Dec. 2010 - CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE for making our first TOY DRIVE a wonderful success! In less than 3 weeks we were fortunate enough to collect donations of new unwrapped toys, games, puzzles, books, and crafts from over 100 families resulting in well over 200 gifts for the brave children who spent the Holidays at Children's Hospital Boston.

driveEvery donation was hand delivered early Dec 23rd making sure Santa's helpers at the Hospital had plenty of time to get them ready for the kids. We hope this can be a wonderful tradition for Melrose and neighboring towns to share with others in need over the Holidays. A big thank you to all who participated! May the New Year bring everyone health and happiness.
