Thank you for making 2017 such a successful year!
It was a year of many firsts for Animal Instinct! Our first spring, summer, fall and winter. Our first Summerfest, first Book Signings, first Neighborhood Toy Store event, first Ogunquitfest, first Toyfest, first Christmas By the Sea, first Christmas.....and we did it with your help! Thank you for supporting us. And wait until you see what we have planned for 2018.
We have made some changes in the store... just a little re-arranging to make space for new products that will be arriving daily throughout the winter/spring. Melissa and Doug has already arrived. They have introduced some amazing items for all ages. Wait until you see the Vet Play sets and the 5 foot Flamingo. Some great new puzzles and wooden playsets have also been priced and set up.
We are putting together an activity schedule for all ages that will begin in March. This will include arts and crafts, story time, and special guests! More info to come once we have it scheduled out.
Our reservations and appointments are made for Toy Fair in February. This trade show is such an exciting time because all the NEW toys, games, dolls, books and plush are being unvieled, played with and assessed by buyers from around the world. I will share what I see via Facebook, so Like us so you can help me with feedback.
We have a list of items our customers have requested us to sell so we will be focusing on finding those items at Toy Fair. If you have any special requests or suggestions please feel free to let us know. We aim to please!
As the song keeps telling us..."It's the most wonderful time of the year!" And we agree!
The Ogunquit Village has been transformed into a magical wonderland. Lights on the trees, garland on the lamp posts and all the the stores have decorated their store fronts. We are so excited to be part of this small seaside town full of big spirit and beauty! Thanks to our designer elves, we have a beautiful Animal Polar scene and a traditional Christmas Tree with all the trimmings! You can't miss the store with all the lights hanging from our awning that is not there!

Today is Small Business Saturday and so many of you will be out shopping and eating at your favorite small businesses in downtown Ogunquit Maine! When you’re shopping small today, and on all the other days, remember you are doing something really wonderful... You’re making your community better! Not only are you supporting local business owners who employ local staff,..but you help these businesses give back to all the local organizations who depend on donations to make their missions come true! Which means that when you spend money locally, that money helps all of us, including those of our neighbors who are in the most need.
We are so grateful when you shop small. That goes without saying! So as a member of the community who benefits from ALL the ways our local businesses make Ogunquit and the Seacoast stronger--- Thank you!!!!
With that said, we invite you to stop in and Save 20% on all your purchases today at Animal Instinct!
Happy Small Saturday!
Days like Saturday November 11th make running a busy toy store all worthwhile! The day was fill with fun, laughter and smiles. There were magic tricks being performed, faces being painted, art projects being made and our crazy game-oligists taught us how much fun games are! Our Neighborhood Toy Store Giveaways were a HUGE success! We had over 750 entries! Congratulations to all the winners. BUT, the best part of the day was interacting and having conversations with YOU! Building relationships is what it is all about. So I give thanks to YOU for making our first Neighborhood Toy Store Day such a success!
