The Toy Box, an unordinary retail store featuring an eclectic array of toys, board games, action figures, pop culture collectibles and more, recently held a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for their new store in the heart of Downtown Summerlin (Pictured: Yoda of Star Wars).
The event gave the media, local celebrities and other invited guests (and their children) a first look at the company’s vast selection of products. Although new to Las Vegas, The Toy Box has over 25 years of experience in the retail toy, games and trading card industry.
Expanding from Edmonton, Canada, entrepreneur Justin Archbold specifically chose Las Vegas to expand his unique brand, which has been established and growing since 1994.
An experienced entrepreneur with a knack for knowing the latest craze, Archbold prides himself on carrying hard to find items that other stores don’t carry, and showcasing iconic pop-culture products. With 2,717 square feet in a prime central location within Downtown Summerlin, the store features a unique array of continually updated inventory including action hero figures, collectible card games such as Magic the Gathering, Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, as well as popular figures and memorabilia based on your favorite video games, TV shows and movies such as Minecraft, “Dr. Who”, “The Walking Dead”, “Game of Thrones” and Marvel’s Avengers.
In addition, the The Toy Box carries vinyl figures and bobble heads; a large selection of board games and dice including many different varieties of the classic game “Monopoly”; super-hero based figures; Lego sets; trusted quality children’s toys such as Melissa & Doug, Mattel and Hasbro; a great selection of stuffed animals from industry leaders TY and Gund toys; Lionel trains and rare candies and sodas.
Relocating from Edmonton five years ago, Justin and his wife Nicole feel Las Vegas has so much to offer in growing their business and raising their two children. “It has been a six-year goal to expand and open The Toy Box in Las Vegas,” says Justin. “After 20 years of success in Canada, we chose to broaden our reach to Las Vegas because of its diverse business climate and strong sense of community,” he added.
The Archbolds will continue to maintain their original store in Edmonton, but will focus on growing the new Las Vegas location with a key initiative of community involvement. Reaching out to the people they serve, The Toy Box plans to hold special themed holiday and character events, autograph sessions by special guests, costume theme nights and fundraising events for local schools and other non-profits.
The Toy Box, situated in the heart of Downtown Summerlin, features rare toys, collectibles, unique brands and the latest pop-culture crazes. Located at 1980 Festival Plaza Dr #175, Las Vegas, the store is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, call 702-776-TOY-0 (702-776 8690) or visit The Toy Box online at www.ToyBoxLasVegas.com or on Facebook at ToyBoxLasVegas, Twitter at @ToyBoxLasVegas and Pinterest at @ToyBoxLasVegas.
