New Perplexus puzzles for all ages!

Perplexus is an amazing brain teaser puzzle game.  Play on your own, take turns, or have speed-solving competitions with a friend!  The original version, for ages six and up, would not stay on the shelf this last Christmas season.   As a winner of the Canadian Toy Testing Council’s Children’s Choice Award and a Parents Magazine Top Toy, Perplexus came highly recommended and did not disappoint!

Canadian toy company Plasmart has expanded on the Perplexus concept with two new additions.  We are pleased to welcome Perplexus Rookie(for ages four and up) and Perplexus Epic(for ages eight and up) to our shelves.

Drop by to give them a try, and let us know what you think!

Keeping It Simple This Christmas

Christmas can be a complicated season. Traffic, dangerous driving, snow up to our knees, and packed malls make shopping so much more difficult than it needs to be. A great way to get your Christmas shopping finished with minimal stress is by going online to research, before venturing into the stores. Some even buy presents online only! Either way, Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s is here to help you out! We have five locations in Ottawa for you to visit, or you can check us out online. If you’re stumped for Christmas ideas, look no further… we’ve got you covered.

Here are a few classic ideas for gift giving this season:

You can’t go wrong with this cute little pouch and vibrantly coloured play tools. It’s perfect for any budding handy/boy/girl!
