Piggy Story

“‘Tag you’re it!’ that used to be all that was needed for an afternoon of adventure and fun.Remember those times? Today it’s hi-tech gadgets, lessons, and tutors before dinner.Where are the wonder and imagination in children today? It’s trapped in a television show,video game or movie of the week. That’s why The Piggy Story is committed to creating products designed to capture young imaginations. Before each product is crafted we ask, “What will captivate a child?” An array of designs from Dragons and Princesses to Piggy Fairies and Piggy Pirates keeps minds engaged to a story of their own. Simple, fun and affordable – crayons, doodle pad, a tote with a fun design, are all the ingredients to make their fantasies come to life. The greatest inventions and technologies surfaced from the wildest imaginations, playing around and just being curious. Let’s give back the wonder and imagination to our children today and watch what they will create for tomorrow.

The Book Table carries The Piggy Story products. Below is a sneak peak at some of them:

Tangle Sportz Matrix Night Ball Softball and Football

Play in the driveway, at the park, even by the water. This ball is completely water-proof and even floats. The perfect ball for nighttime fun, now you don’t have to stop kicking after it gets dark out. Its tough yet flexible rubber design is ideal for all kinds of play while fun colors and fascinating lights create a memorable soccer game experience. Get ready to play all twenty-four hours of the day with the Tangle Sportz Matrix NightBall Soccer Ball. Recommended for children ages 3 and up.

Not just a high-quality football, the Nightball contains special LED lights that illuminate the ball when thrown. The NightBall’s tough, synthetic construction does not need to be inflated and is always ready for play. The faster the ball spirals through the air, the brighter the LED lights glow. Requires one non-standard battery (included). Suitable for outdoor use only.

Lil Merfin Mermaid Flipper

The Li’l MerFin is the ‘little sister’ product to the Mahina MerFin Classic, referred to as the ‘training wheels’ for the MerFin Classic. The Li’l MerFin is an ultra-lightweight fin which has an adjustable foot strap, which makes it a one-size-fits-all for children between the ages of 6 and 12.

Designed for those wanting to test the waters and put their little toes in the shallow end to discover what all the fuss of Mermaiding is about. A dress-up toy that can be used both in and out of the water, Li’l MerFin lets little girls imagine they are a mermaid and even swim a lap or two like a mermaid if the foot strap is pulled tight. For safety reasons, the foot strap will release quite quickly when used in the pool, which is part of the adjustable single foot strap design. The Li’l MerFin is perfect for the pool, allowing Li’l Mermaids to play their Mermaid games in safety and build water confidence, while inspiring their imaginations.

Jazzminton

Great fast-paced, action packed paddle game. Pick the feather birdie you’d like to use, stand at a distance of 5 to 30 feet, and see how long you can go without dropping it. Play on a hard surface and watch the birdie bounce to give you a second chance at your record. The set includes 2 paddles and 4 feather birdies. The two blue birdies are for fast play at longer distance and the two orange birdies are better closer and easier play. The paddle is made of wood and the birdies are real feathers. Can be played inside as the feather birdies are lightweight and shouldn’t break anything.

Come check out all the fun summer toys we have in our Toy Department including lots of fun sand/water toys! The fun starts here!
