Rhapsody in the Vineyard
Rhapsody in the Vineyard, a downtown wine walk presented by the Downtown Corvallis Association features some of Oregon’s premier wineries and distillers offering samples of their finest vintages.
DCA retailers throughout downtown Corvallis will have wineries and distiller representatives on hand to share their product and answer your questions. Retailers will offer taste tempting appetizers, music and art. Beverages will also be available for purchase by the bottle or by the case.
The Toy Factory will once again be an official retailer of wristbands and wine glasses so that you may enjoy your tasting journey throughout downtown.
Every November The Toy Factory supports local schools with Give Back Nights. On these special nights, we stay open late and donate 10% of sales to that evening’s highlighted school. These are festive evenings with holiday music, hot chocolate, cider and cookies.
If your school would like to take part in a Give Back Night this November, please contact Patrick, our store manager. He will get you setup with a date and help you with ideas for advertising the event.
Labor Day is just around the corner, and in Corvallis that means back to school time. While we are a toy store, we do have many school and learning related items in our store, including: Learning place mats from Melissa & Doug, magnetic ABC’s markers, crayons, flash cards, math and reading books from School Zone, flash cards from Brain Quest and so much more.
On Monday we enjoyed a special Science Lab with Patrick, thanks to the solar eclipse. Several children and construction workers from the new hotel joined Patrick and Richard in the parking lot. The children enjoyed tracking their shadows with chalk, making solar prints, blowing bubbles and eating eclipse cookies. It was an event to remember for a lifetime.
The Play Factory has been updated and is ready for your little ones. We closed it last Sunday, August 6th so that our staff could inspect, sort, and clean the play area and toys. We reopened on Monday at 10 am with clean toys, new toys and some new play elements. We hope you like it. We have a few more updates to do over the next couple of months, so keep a look out for more new play elements coming soon. As always, the Play Factory is open Monday – Saturday 10 am – 5 pm, and Sunday 12 – 5 pm. Cost is $3.50 per child. We also sell a 10 visit punch card for $30 savings of $5.
