Funtopia celebrates two years and tons of toys

MIDDLETOWN – Funtopia, Lake County's premier toy store, is celebrating its second anniversary with a special celebration this week.

“It is hard to believe we've been open two years, it has been a whirlwind of toys and games and kids,” said Jennifer Nunn, co-owner of Funtopia.

Added her business partner and husband, Jason Curtis, "But what better reason for having a party!"

To celebrate their two-year anniversary, and to thank the community for supporting their selection of unique toys and games, Funtopia is throwing a party and sale on Saturday, Feb. 23rd, starting at 10 a.m.

And to mark the occasion, the couple will be unveiling a new sign.

“We moved to our new location at 21208 Calistoga St., right in downtown Middletown, 10 months year ago and we've had a temporary sign ever since,” said Curtis. “At our anniversary, though, we will be unveiling our new, hand-painted sign.”

“It is really special," added Nunn. “It was painted by a local artist and friend of ours, JoAnn Robinson. It captures the spirit and whimsy of our toy store and we are excited to unveil it at 1 p.m. for the public to see.”

In addition to the sale – offering between 25 and 50 percent off a large selection of great toys – but they'll also have popcorn and balloons for everyone.

There's also the new “Book Nook” – a newly created space to hold the store's selection of children's books.

"Over the last two years we’ve enjoyed becoming part of the community, working with the schools, and meeting the kids and parents of Lake County,” said Nunn. “We moved here because of the beauty but we've stayed because of the people. And we hope that everyone enjoys our party as much as we've enjoyed becoming part of the community!”

Funtopia, located at 21208 Calistoga St., in Middletown, California, is a locally owned independent toy store, specializing in unique toys and games that enhance play and creativity for children of all ages. Open Tuesday through Sunday, they are the perfect place to find that special birthday gift and have it wrapped for free.
