Blast from the past
I purchased the Pick up Sticks, click clacks (2 of them) and the kalidescope for my family. The kids loved them (ages 17 and 13). My husband and I played several games of Pick up Sticks and reminisced our childhoods. We talked about all the fun games we played, like Jack Straws. Thanks for having these products.

Corporate Party with a 70's theme
My boss handed me the task of putting together a company party with a 70's theme. We had a DJ provide the music of hte 70's but I felt I needed something more so I googled "Toys of the 70" and The Vermont Country Store came up as one of the options. I was thrilled with all the choices for nostalgic toys! I purchased the Pick up Sticks along with the Fifteen puzzle (my favorite when I was a kid) Quick Clacks, Gumby & Pokey, Mr. Bill and a few decks of Children's cards including Old Mail (another childhood favorite of mine.) All of the toys from your store were used by the DJ as give-a-ways for dance competitions like "The Hustle" and the "Soul City Shuffle." Other contests included a YoYo competition and a best costume contest. We used Lava Lamps as center pieces for the tables which were given away at the end of the night. We also had a box of 70's candy at every table. There was a ball and jacks game along with a yoyo at everyone's place setting. The party was a big success and I can't thank you enough for making these items so easily accessible. This is a great store, Keep up the good work!
