It has been awhile since I have written about a local business favorite. If you travel to downtown Zionsville, there are locally owned restaurants and businesses. Nearby, there is Lions Park. You can walk up some steps and be located in downtown Zionsville from Lions Park. When you step into the stores, you will surely be greeted by a small business owner. Earth Explorer Toys is not any different. Outside, you will most likely see a tetherball or bubbles blowing outside. I recently signed my kids up for some two hour programs they have had throughout the summer for kids aged 6-12 taught by a former Zionsville teacher. They have had so much fun learning about Lego Chains, Chemistry, Art, Recycling & Reusing, Rocks & Fossils, and their absolute favorite so far has been creating their own board game! One of the neatest parts of the board game class was that an actual board game inventor came to talk to the kids about inventing a game. On a recent visit, I took some pictures of the inside of the store and some of the items they have for sale. Being the bargain hunter I am, they even have a room dedicated to clearance items. The pictures do not even come close to displaying everything they have available. They have many unique toys, books, classes for kids, including a monthly Shopkins exchange. Make sure to like their FB page: Earth Explorer Toys and stop by and visit them soon!
