Coming Up: Cheeky Monkey toy store: Andy Z concert, preschool program and review


Where to start with Cheeky Monkey toy store…I was originally planning to just review this downtown Menlo Park store, which I stumbled upon this summer. I wasn’t the first – it’s been around for at least 6 years.

I’ll be the first to say how much I despise Toys R Us. And as much as I love Target, I hate their toy selection. Cheeky Monkey has a fabulous variety of toys – castles, Alex art products, science labs, dinosaurs, bug stuff, games and Grandma toys (the ones only grandmas buy because they’re expensive).

I bought Mad Libs, which got us in trouble at Legoland (read why).

I’m also posting about two upcoming free events there

First: Andy Z is performing this Saturday (9/20) at 11 a.m.

Second: The store has a new Page to Play program every Wednesday until Thanksgiving. They’ll have book readings and play-based activities, for kids 18 months to four years. See their calendar for more about it. It’s free.

Where: Cheeky Monkey Toys, 640 Santa Cruz Avenue in downtown Menlo Park
What: Andy Z concert Saturday, September 20 at 11 a.m.
What: Page to Play, every Wednesday until Thanksgiving (ages 18 month-4 yr)
Cost: free
