Santa’s Hours

Santa will arrive to ABC & Toy Zone in Rochester on Saturday, November 30.   We will be doing Santa passes again this year to alleviate the two or three hour lines.   Passes will be handed out for the day starting at 9 a.m. Monday-Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m.

Santa will be in his chair at ABC & Toy Zone from:

M-F 12-3 and 4-7

Sat/Sun 12-2 and 3-5


You can bring your own camera and take pictures (please limit pictures).   Donations can be made via credit card at the cash register or cash donations will be accepted in the red mailbox in Santa’s room.  Donations are how Santa pays for part of his expenses as he doesn’t live in Rochester.   We are very excited to see everyone again this year.

Is your child having a party?

Did you know we do gift registries? Well, we do! If you have a child 12 years or younger, bring them into ABC & Toy Zone to make one!

The process is simple! Mom/Dad fill out a registration form at the front counter, and your child (and you) can go throughout the store picking things out that they would like.

When completed, bring the loaded basket of wishlist items to the register. Our friendly staff will scan all the items into our system so that when your friends and family come in to the store, or call with a phone order, we can lead them right to an item on their list!

Just for making your wishlist at ABC & Toy Zone, the birthday Child will recieve a preselected gift, OR $5 in store credit that can be used around his/her birthday!

Did I mention, we will wrap the gifts at no additional cost too!? Chomp will even help!

He brought along a 25 lb ball of Super Oil Slick Putty

It was fun watching him demo all the ways to squeeze, stretch, tear, and bounce!

He even got to meet his biggest fan! 90 tins, that’s AMAZING!

We are so THANKFUL to ALL who came out!

Cheapest Laminating in Town!

I absolutely love the look of posters after they have been laminated,

the color just pops and can make an old poster look new again!

Maybe you have art projects that your child created that you would like to save, let us laminate them!

Now would be the perfect time to get your Senior Posters laminated, and while you are at it, bring in the posters they want to hang in their dorm room!

At only 10 cents an inch for our 3 mil laminate, it can’t be beat!

**Aguarellum** Paint on the Watercolor and let the “Magic Canvas” do the rest!

   This is a SUPER fun, SUPER easy art project for all ages. Even the amateur adult painter will enjoy painting with the Aquarellum Paint Sets. A guide is included with each one, explaining exactly how to achieve the beautiful and vibrant colors! Don’t like being told how to paint your pictures with numbers? That’s fine! It’s completely up to your imagination how you want your picture to look. The wax on the paper makes it so the paint is resistant outside of the lines. They come in many different sizes and variety of pictures. Whether you are looking for cute cats and elephants that are simple enough for a 5 year to do, or a more intricate picture of under the sea or even a beautiful peacock. We have your selection at all four ABC & Toy Zone locations!

Watch how easy it is to paint with Aquarellum here:
