Think a toy looks really fun, sounds really fun, but wonder if it’ll live up to expectations? Clark Planetarium offers the chance to find out with a Hands-on Holiday Toy Shop on Saturday, December 12 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
During the Hands-on Holiday Toy Shop, gift-givers and receivers of all ages can try the toys in Clark Planetarium’s “Planet Fun” store before making a final purchase. “We know that sometimes you get or give a toy for the holidays and it’s not quite what you expected,” said Mike Sheehan, manager of Planet Fun. “The Hands-on Holiday Toy Shop is meant to not only solve that problem, but to help excite kids about science by seeing first-hand just how cool science and educational toys can be.”
Many of Planet Fun’s most popular toys and games will be discounted at 25% off or more during the event, and all telescopes will be discounted by 10%. Purchasers who spend $100 or more before tax will receive a voucher for four free tickets to any one show in the Hansen Dome Theatre, including Clark Planetarium’s own holiday production, Let it Snow, featuring recognizable holiday characters, festive classics, and laser imagery and special effects.
Members of Clark Planetarium receive an additional 20% off of their purchases of toys and games during the event, and also receive free entry into all shows playing in the Hansen Dome Theatre and Orbital ATK IMAX Theatre for the duration of their membership.
WHAT: Play with the toys at Planet Toy before your purchases.
WHEN: Saturday, Dec. 12 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
WHERE: Clark Planetarium, 110 South 400 West
