Coraline by Neil Gaiman

CoralineCoralineCheck out Coraline by Neil Gaiman! (We always recommend reading the book first of course) Coraline is now a major motion picture being released this February 6, 2009

"When Coraline steps through a door to find another house strangely similar to her own (only better), things seem marvelous.

But there's another mother there, and another father, and they want her to stay and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Coraline will have to fight with all her wits and courage if she is to save herself and return to her ordinary life."

A New Year

First, I'd like to say Happy New Year! It's January 1st, a cold wind is blowing outside my window and as I write this I feel very grateful to have heat & power. ( a few still don't after the ice storm several weeks ago.) The turn of the calendar typically allows us to think about the year ahead; the opportunities we'll enjoy and the challenges we may face. Without trying to gloss over the difficulties that many people face right now, we always look to the new year as a time of revitalization. At G.Willikers! this is a time where new ideas can emerge. Ideas that we hope will keep our store exciting, competitive and relevant in our community. There are always new innovations this time of year in the toy industry and 2009 will be no exception. We look forward to showcasing many of these new products & playthings while we continue to carry the best toys the planet has to offer. Our 30th Anniversary year is behind us now but we're wasting no time as we prepare for a new year, a new president and many new initiatives.

Go Bag Free to Protect the Earth!

For almost 2 months now, we have donated a dime to a local "green intiiative" when our customers go bag free, use our 100% recycled G.Wllikers! bags, or use their own bag.

Over 600 bags saved!

This has been a small step that has seemed to have a big impact. Our customers are supportive and enthusiastic about this, and already we have saved over 600 bags, and will be donating over $60 to Little Harbors Eco-Camp Program.

June Donation: Seacoast Science Center

For the month of June our dime a bag donation will go to the Seacoast Science Center to celebrate their educational approaches to keeping our planet healthy.

The Seacoast Science Center informed us that sea turtles and other marine life think plastic bags are jellyfish and they try to eat them. Together we can take small steps that make a big difference!
