Busy Bee Learning Store

Museum stores help support their organizations financially, are a resource for the community, and enable guests to take a piece of their museum experience home. Our goal in the Busy Bee Learning Store is to inspire play, engage families in learning together, and promote Kidspace's mission of nurturing the potential of all children.

Busy Bee Recommends...

In the Busy Bee Learning Store, we try to help each child find an item that will continue their Kidspace experience at home. We ask them what Kidspace Critters they met, what exhibit or program was their favorite, what stories they heard at story time, or what they created in Flutterby’s Art Center or Imagination Workshop...

Here we are only halfway through the year, and we at the Busy Bee Learning Store are getting ready for the holidays!

Why Do We Build?

Children's toys offer various skill building opportunities from creativity and problem solving to cooperation and logic. Of course they are fun, but they are also the building blocks for future success!

Children's toys offer various skill building opportunities from creativity and problem solving to cooperation and logic.
