Stortytime Toys event!

Join us Saturday, November 23rd from 10am-2pm for a very special event!

Introducing... Storytime Toys and the two smart and creative women who created them!


a storytime toy playtable where you will be able to interact with the product, as well as  the inventor, Kara Dyer!

a drawing area guided by Sara Argue, the creative director (with New Hampshire roots!) 

and a reading nook, where the Storytime Tales will be told!

This will be a fun-filled OPEN HOUSE, bringing alive the tales of Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks and the Three Bears,  and the Three Little Pigs!

Each toy is a complete fairytale playset that includes a toy house, storybook, furniture and dolls.  These toys appeal to both girls and boys, feature beautiful artwork, and assemble without tools or screws.  Their colorful, attractive and functional packaging doubles as a storage and carrying case which will delight children, parents, grandparents and other potential gift-givers.

A free family event and a perfect opportunity to get that extra special Holiday gift!
We promise you will leave... Happily ever after!

Support the (H)EAT fund through One Dime at a Time

At G.Willikers! we are commited to our local community and one of the ways we contribute is by cutting back on our use of bags.

In an effort to be conscious of our environment we encourage customers to go Bag Free by donating a dime each time through our One Dime at a Time program. Each month we choose a different charity to donate to, and this month we will once again donate to the Seacoast Local's (H)EAT Fund. Each year, from Nov 1 through March 1 the members of this local organization, through support from their customers, raise funds for food and fuel assistance to provide "Ten Thousand Meals, Ten Thousand Gallons" to people in need on the Maine and New Hampshire Seacoast.

For 35 years, the seacoast community has supported our little toy shop and we feel privileged to be able to give a little back through donations of time, merchandise and money!
