National Autism Awareness Month: Likes 4 Tikes!

Posted by aMuse Toys on April 14, 2013 0 Comments

In participation with Melissa & Doug and the Kennedy Krieger Institute, we are giving away toys!

April is National Autism Awareness Month and we are incredibly inspired by our many friends of aMuse that have some connection to a child on the Autism spectrum. What better way to honor the true meaning of this month then by celebrating these individuals with a donation of toys and games to foster their creativity and facilitate their learning needs? For every 10 "Likes" we get on Facebook between Sunday, April 14th and Sunday, April 28th, we will donate $10 worth of Melissa & Doug products to the Kennedy Krieger Institute's Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), up to $1,000. We're calling it our Likes 4 Tikes campaign!

 

Toys and games play a huge role in child development and the promotion of important skills and abilities: Speech and language development, cognitive development, social cues, fine motor and gross motor refinement, and even life skills.

We are excited for the chance to add to the collection of these essential developmental tools at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders. But, the amount of toys we give away depends entirely on you so be sure to "Like" our Facebook page and share this post with all your friends and family.

The wonderful staff at Kennedy Krieger and CARD incorporate play into their daily activities with the children and behind the scenes are the doctors and scientists researching groundbreaking advancements in this field. To learn more about the extraordinary efforts of individuals at Kennedy Krieger Institute and how you can join the caring individuals who work and volunteer there, please visit: www.kennedykrieger.org/overview/volunteer.

And remember, the more "Likes" we get, the more toys and games we donate, so be sure to #GetYourShareOn!

Halloween Costume Giveaway

Posted by aMuse Toys on September 18, 2011 1 Comment


With Halloween quickly approaching, we think it's fitting to do a costume giveaway. After all, kids love to dress up to pretend, and we love to inspire their imaginations!

Role playing is imperative for healthy early childhood development. It allows children to use their creativity, explore emotions and interactions, develop empathy and a sense of self. We encourage children (and kidaults) to creatively play all year round — not just at Halloween.  

Melissa & Doug make some really amazing pretend play role sets that also make high-quality Halloween costumes. Each costume is designed to fit children ages 3 - 6 years of age and features appropriate accessories.

We're giving away two costumes — one costume a piece for two different winners. The winners choose which costume they'd like to have. 

HOW TO ENTER:

1. Like both aMuse Toys and Melissa & Doug on Facebook.

2. Leave a comment on this blog post letting us know that you liked both Facebook pages. Don't worry if you're already a fan of both, it just saves you a step!

3. Cross your fingers and hope for the best! Two winning families will be chosen randomly on October 15, 2011. Winners will be announced via the aMuse Toys Facebook and Melissa & Doug Facebook pages on October 18, 2011. Make sure to fill in your email so we can contact you.

Here are some pictures of some of the Melissa & Doug costumes available. Stop by either aMuse Toys location to see their quality and cute style in person. Good luck, and don't forget to tell your friends!
