New Time 4 Toys planned to open by holidays
A Time 4 Toys location is coming to the Lucky City soon, and owner Jessica Green says she can’t wait to serve new patrons this fall.
“I wanted to bring Time 4 Toys to the area since I love it,” Green said. “I live in Madison and I wanted to offer a place for moms to come in a shop while their kids can play with toys.”
Time 4 Toys currently operates out of Flowood, and will still serve as the flagship location once the new store in Gluckstadt opens. The store sells a variety of toys for infants, toddlers, and pre-teens, and even sensory toys for children dealing with sensory-related issues.
Other products at the store include toys for pretend play, such as dolls and role-play sets, fun-time products such as toy trucks, educational play such as flashcards and compasses, and active play products like footballs and water guns. Gift wrapping is also offered to make Time 4 Toys a one-stop shop for customers.
Green said she always tries to stay current with what children are enjoying and bases her stock of toys around popular trends.
She hopes to run both store locations efficiently while working in conjunction with her church, Broadmoor, local schools, and Magnolia Speech School.
“I try my best to get with teachers and give them the things they need for their classrooms,” Green said. “I also plan to work closely with local occupational therapists. Some of my toys are intentionally selected in collaboration with them. I also am planning on a portion of funds raised at my stores to go to the adoption program at Broadmoor.”
The new store in Gluckstadt is estimated to open sometime in November and December, and once the new location is open, Green will take ownership of both stores.
“I plan for this location to operate the exact same way as the Flowood store,” Green said. “While Flowood will remain the flagship store, the Gluckstadt location will offer everything Flowood has. I want to offer something to Gluckstadt that everyone, including me, can benefit from.”
Green is a current member of the Mississippi Air National Guard and currently lives in Madison with her husband Jarrod and two children, Gage and Ginny. Her father Erik Case works alongside Green at the Flowood location while she is in Gluckstadt or on military duty.
