Please enjoy our special Thanksgiving Edition...

A gift of a puppet encourages imaginative, open-ended play, endearing hugs, and snuggly companionship… so we present our Quick Pick #1

Hold the stuffing! This Turkey puppet only needs your hand to come alive. Designed in multi-textures it's a true representation of our cherished American icon. Designed for use with either one hand or two, the turkey's tail proudly displays.

Folkmanis® believes imagination is the key to a healthy childhood, encouraging play and discovery to develop the skills necessary in life. The company has been making the most innovative and engaging specialty puppets in the world since 1976, delighting imaginations and winning nearly every industry, child development, and kid-tested award - many repeatedly.





Quick Pick #2: Ty Beanie Boos

Gobbles (purple eyes) - "When I give a gobble or two, I am simply saying Hello to you!" Birthday: November 28th

Thankful (green eyes) - "I eat too much pumpkin pie, That's the reason I can barely fly!" Birthday: November 22nd














Quick Pick #3: The Elf on the Shelf 

Once Thanksgiving is over, you've got to be ready for your scout elf to make his appearance! Support small businesses like The Animal Kingdom to purchase your Elf on the Shelf set - we're the same price as the big box stores! We'd love to help you bring the Christmas magic home to your family this year!

The original Elf on the Shelf set includes a magical scout elf from the North Pole and a beautiful children’s story book, all in a keepsake gift box. When you adopt this special elf and name him, he receives his Christmas magic and can fly to the North Pole—but only when all girls and boys are sound asleep. At the start of each holiday season, the elf returns to his family’s house to be Santa’s eyes and ears, and every night he travels back to the North Pole to report in. Families can register their elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa. 


New this year - Plushee Pals are touchable versions of The Elf on the Shelf scout elf from the North Pole. Great for younger children who are learning the tradition for the first time!

Returning this year - An Elf's Story on DVD is filled with fun, music, and the timeless message that Christmas is something we carry out in our hearts. DVD includes the 23-minute holiday special, TV trailer, behind-the-scenes, and filmmaker's commentary.
