"I just wanted to thank U.S. Toy for supporting our US military kids in Italy and the Vicenza Military Community's Spring Carnival sponsored by our local Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). Although there was flooding throughout the area due to heavy rains the days prior, the sun was shining by the afternoon on May 17th for our carnival and hundreds of families came rushing through those gates to play games, win prizes, and share in the fun! One seven year old boy was overheard inquiring "how did they make a carnival at the school? - this is awesome!" The 173rd Airborne Infantry Brigade recently returned home from a year long deployment to Afghanistan which made this year's carnival extra special. The brigade's welcome home ceremony, held the same day as the carnival, was attended by many Department of Defense School teachers who steadfastly supported the kids during the difficult one year separation from their deployed parents. The answer to the boy's question is hard work, a little needed sunshine, great prizes, and the support of your wonderful company. The joyful reunion of those families and the thrill of the carnival were evident on the kids' faces in the photos that are on our flickr site below and you are welcome to use any of the photos as it is all public: http://www.flickr.com/photos/usagvicenza/sets/72157633527540092/. Once again, thanks so much for your support.

"Andrew and Laura were amazing. Really helped me out in a crunch to get the balloons filled with money and helium. Even though they were short staffed they got me in and out in a timely manner. And they both did it with smiles and were very friendly!"

"Just wanted to share with you that my husband and I shopped at US TOY last night and EVERY single employee greeted us and asked if they could help us. (we were up and down EVERY aisle, that is why we were greeted so much) We went for something specific that we were told over the phone was in stock but when we got there couldn't find it. SEVERAL employees worked together to help us. I just can't tell you how impressed we were! Even though the item we went for was out of stock, we found something else that would work just fine! KUDOS to such a fine group and well trained staff! "

" Went here looking for some cowboy party favors/decorations and was able to rustle up quite a few things. This is a huge store filled with toys, baubles and trinkets for many popular themes. In addition it appears to have a large variety of school supplies for the classroom in particular bulletin board decor."
