1) Send us your school or event information requesting a donation, offer the Playseum advertisement within your school auction/event program and we will give you a Special Birthday Party Package (valued at $300). We have the right to refuse donations if proper paperwork is not submitted to us.  We give away 15 auction baskets a year.  All paper work must be into our office via email or snail mail by May 1, 2015.

2) NIGHT AT THE PLAYSEUM  for friends and family of your child's school. We will open our doors after hours (6-8PM) and give your school 20% of the total amount brought in that night.  In order to recieve the 20% each entry must bring with them a Playseum Card that we would provide via email for your guests to mail to as many people as they want.  Domino's pizza & drinks would also be for purchase (included within the 20%). Check would be mailed one week from Playseum night.

3) Does your school or daycare need some sprucing up?  Allow Ms Gina, the owner & designer of the Playseum, to come and give you some consulting advice in regards to creativity, design and functionality of your play spaces.  (consulting fee can be exchanged for advertisement within your school or daycare.)

OUR BOOKS at the Playseum

We carry a very large variety of childrens books! Some are gently used and some are brand new. Each of our city shops have related books for you and your child to read and enjoy. Looking for "Fancy Nancy" books? Look for books like these in the Bella Salon. What about "Curious George Fights a Fire?" Take a walk over to the firehouse.

Too busy playing? You may purchase any of our books (with the exception of the antique books in Grandma's Attic) and take them home with you! Just flip over the book for the price.

Books prices range from $1- $16 depending on the condition and original price. Most of the books are between $1-$3.

We value reading at the Playseum! We want to encourage kids to read in every day life, by giving them a unique environment like the Playseum! We want to give you and your child quality time to enjoy a great book. So take take a stroll through the city, grab a book off a shelf, and read with your child the next time you’re here!

Have some books you would like to donate?

We would love to have them! Donate twenty-five gently used children or parenting books and receive TWO free admission passes good for any visit. Please make sure books are not colored in, have missing pages, and are not ripped! Thanks!
