Hereís a cool idea for fine-tuning your toy-shopping list: At Larsonís Toys and Games tomorrow, kids and parents can play with all kinds of Playmobil sets from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Because sometimes you just donít know what kids are interested in or developmentally ready for unless they actually test-drive a toy.

Playmobil has selected a few retailers around the country for this ďNational Day of Play,Ē and Larsonís is the one here in Central Ohio. Play is free and unrestricted (and we know from years past of going in there just to play with the Thomas train sets, the staff does not hover and hassle you into buying something).

Larsonís Toys and Games is located at 1617 W. Lane Ave. in Upper Arlington (just down the street from a Graeterís Ice Cream. Just in case you need to reward yourself afterward.)
