Locally sourced, eco-friendly toys for creative, open-ended play are now available at Creative Play with 2 Paper Sisters, a pop-up shop at Tanger Outlets Seaside, off 21 Street.
Customers can recreate the perfect play spaces in their own home using toys that rely on children’s imaginations and creativity instead of batteries and Wi-Fi.
The arts section is stocked with organic modeling clay, specialty crayons and sidewalk chalk, as well as eco-friendly finger paints.
In the creative play section, a child can dress up as a super hero with a cape, shield and eye mask, or zoom around with one of the highly detailed wooden trucks.
Sensory play is so important for all children; it helps with anxiety and is a perfect way for children to decompress after an emotional outburst. Shoppers can browse the sensory bar to create a custom kit or purchase a pre-made one.
The adorable book nook includes a variety of books to choose from and a linen canopy perfect for snuggling up.
And, for those times when kids need to burn off some energy, Pikler furniture transforms any play space into a perfectly kid-friendly indoor play area.
Store hours are 3-7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sundays. Other weekends are Friday-Sunday, July 2-4, July 9-11, and July 16-18.
These toys are perfect for birthday gifts, summer play dates, beach memories or just because. A 5% portion of all purchases supports a US-based charity.
The owners of 2 Paper Sisters are passionate about encouraging children’s imaginations and helping others.
