Being new to the area, I sometimes like to drive around just to see what is in the area. Driving around also sometimes gets my girls to nap, which hasn’t been happening since they turned 2. During one of my excursions to nowhere, I noticed a store called The Learning Palace. The Learning Palace is a wonderful educational toy store that is locally owned and just celebrated their 30th anniversary. We happened to stop in the store the first time the day before their 30th anniversary party, so we came back the next day.
On our second trip, we brought Dad with as he is just as excited by educational toy stores as I am. The store carries educational toys, workbooks, kits, and supplies for nearly every age range. While living in Las Vegas, I never found a store that carried similar items. I may have just not found one, but I am not certain there were any. I was so happy to find a store that values children as much as I do.
We were very impressed by the level of knowledge of the staff and the customer service they provided. They had lots of product knowledge and many ideas to tackle learning challenges. We visited the Gresham location and I am excited to visit the other locations as well.
During the anniversary party, there were lots of activities for my daughters to try. They played with do-a-dot markers and made their own bead bracelets. The train set is always a lot of fun and they got to play with other kids with the trains. There was also a raffle, which my girls won. They picked this wonderful toy from Melissa and Doug.Overall, I am very pleased with this store. Customer service is the most important thing to me when I shop, and I will always gladly pay more and drive further to shop at a store that has good customer service. I am happy this store is very close to my new home as I will be visiting often. For those of you who don’t live in the area, The Learning Palace also offers an online catalog. I highly recommend it to everyone!
