The Toy Professor in Downtown Summit for #SmallBusinessSaturday

The Toy Professor in Downtown Summit for #SmallBusinessSaturday

#HipNJ spent #SmallBusinessSaturday in Downtown Summit with Beyond Main. Maria Falzo of #HipNJ spoke with the owner of The Toy Professor, Geoff Stern, about his toys for learning and imagination.

At Stern’s store, “We provide a fun environment with quality, fun toys and hope to develop real relationships with our customers and in some small way hopefully positively impact the development of your children. We also create jobs, taxes and support for many local charities. Join us Saturday or any day to celebrate your neighborhood toy store.”

Children come into The Toy Professor with bright smiles on their faces from all the store has to offer. The store not only has things for kids, but adults as well. His unique toys are ones that cannot be found in the mass market and are accessible and easy to play with. He showed us the Professors Picks, which are the toys of the year, giving buyers high quality and stimulating fun toys across all ages!

Stern was able to bring us around the store to show us some popular toys. First, he showed us a cube that opens up by powered magnets that can be folded into cool shapes. This is something kids and adults can’t put down! Another great toy is the Incredible Stress Buster, where you lock it down on a surface and hit it as hard as you can. This punching stress reliever is great for kids and adults. Next, he showed us a sound amplifier, where sound is enhanced from your phone or tablet. Lastly, the Air Fort is a huge blow up tent (fan not included). In just seconds it blows up as a huge air tent and collapses when done.
