You’re planning a birthday party and you know the question from every guest invited: "What should we get him or her?" Learning Express Toys makes it easy... have your child create a Birthday Box three weeks before the party!

Your child will be thrilled to walk the store and fill a box with "must have" items, and you’ll eliminate the guesswork for family and friends! Another benefit – no duplicate gifts, no returns!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Come in with your child, request a Birthday Box and fill out a quick form.
  2. Receive a large tub for your child to fill with items he or she wants for their birthday (with your approval of course!). We’ll label the box with your child’s name and keep it handy.
  3. Include our free Birthday Box announcements with your invitations.
  4. When your party guests visit our store, we’ll pull out the Birthday Box, and they can easily choose gifts from the box to purchase. (Out-of-town guests? Have them give us a ring!)
  5. There is never a charge for gift-wrapping!




At Learning Express Toys, we want to make gift-giving a snap. That’s why we wrap your gifts for FREE while you wait! Our Toy Experts are also specially trained gift-wrappers, and we’ll make your gift look its best with our colorful Learning Express wrapping paper and ribbon.

No need to make a second stop - greeting cards are available to complete your gift (and we’ll even offer you a pen to sign it on the spot).

Want to make your gift really stand out? Our Toy Experts are happy to suggest a gift topper! Add a gift card to let the birthday boy or girl pick out a little something extra.

Free gift wrapping is available when shopping in-store, online, or online with in-store pickup.



At Learning Express Toys, our motto is "Always the perfect toy." That means finding the right toy, for the right child, every time. We go above and beyond to train our staff on the educational benefits and play value all our most popular toys, so we feel confident calling our staff Toy Experts.

Our Toy Experts can answer questions like:

  • "What is a good developmental toy for a 6-month-old?"
  • "What is a great toy for my 5-year-old granddaughter who likes art?"
  • "What should I get my 13-year-old nephew who is on the autism spectrum?"

We can also offer tips and tricks for using your toys. Whether it’s a craft kit, a skill toy or an exciting new game, our Toy Experts are happy to demonstrate it and let you get hands-on!

Learning Express Toys offers free personalization on a variety of items we sell--from buckets to piggy banks to organizer cases. Our Toy Experts use special paint markers to write names or initials in our signature Learning Express bubble font, along with many decorative designs, from hearts and stars to the latest cartoon characters.

Personalization takes just minutes, and is done while you wait. Ask what items and designs are available for personalization.

Many of our Toy Experts are creative artists and can take special requests! Again, just ask.

Our personalized items make unique, memorable gifts that will be used every day! See below for a sampling of personalized items.
