US Toy Kansas City Moving to Overland Park After 40 Years on State Line
To accommodate their growth & provide a new experience for shoppers, US Toy Kansas City is moving in 2019!
US Toy’s new store will be in the vacated Office Max building near 119th & Metcalf in Overland Park, KS. The complex will house not only US Toy, but also Pump It Up and the US Toy Magic & Costume Shop.
Did you realize they have the largest costume shop in KC? And it’s open year round!
This move also means 30% OFF the entire store at their current 103rd & State Line Rd. location as they prep for the big move to Overland Park.
US Toy On the Move in 2019
“We are hopeful we’ll be able to hit the May 2019 target date” for opening the new location said Seth Freiden, CEO of US Toy.
It will serve as a one-stop party shop & resource for families and educators. …Hello convenience!
KC parents & children will experience US Toy in a whole new way.
…a more modern & convenient store to serve as a go-to party place for families while still providing all of the services and products they always have.
The move will also help US Toy avoid the flooding of Indian Creek River during rainy seasons, as well as provide vast parking options and space for outdoor events throughout the year.
