Halloween at the Toy Store!

Let's talk about what's on deck at our toy shoppe for Halloween! October Fun at the toy stores, Slime Parties, Sugar Skulls, and Spooky Stories



Slime Party Extravaganza - October 14th, 4 PM

Mark your calendars for the slimiest event of the season! On October 14th at 4 PM, we're hosting a Slime Party at San Marino Toy and Book Shoppe, and you won't want to miss it. We've teamed up with Sparklez Slimez, a Pasadena-based party slime company, to bring you an afternoon of gooey, Halloween-themed delight.

At our Slime Party, kids will have the chance to become slime scientists, mixing their own slime creations with spooky baubles and doo dads. The best part? They get to take their creepy concoctions home with them! Please note that there is a $30 fee for this event, and RSVPs are required. Hurry, as seats are limited! If we sell out, we'll consider adding more seats to accommodate everyone. Click here to RSVP for the Slime Party.


Sugar Skull Decorating Event - October 15th, 4 PM

The fun doesn't stop there! On the following Sunday, October 24th at 4 PM, we're bringing the artistic vibes to our Sugar Skull Decorating Event. Join us as we use edible watercolors to paint homemade sugar skull cookies. It's a sweet and colorful way to celebrate the season, and it's perfect for kids and adults alike!
