February 19, 2016 // Franchising.com // Devens, MA - When customers step into a Learning Express Toys store, they’ll see not only shelves piled high with products, but toys available at kid level to touch, feel and test. They’ll meet Toy Experts who can hit a bullseye with Two Bros Bows, create a PlushCraft pet with ease and challenge you with a game of Spot It! - and explain how to do it. These spotlight items are among this spring’s Top Toys - products selected for their quality, demonstration value and universal appeal.
