Birthdays

Birthday gifts are presented to qualifying clients January through November for ages 1-15. Due to the number of clients we serve during the Christmas holiday season, all December birthdays are served in November. If the child’s birthday falls AFTER Christmas we will make an appointment starting Dec 26th. For complete information, please go to the birthday section above. While we prefer that you not bring children, we ask that if your child accompanies you to shop, that you would sign a media release and allow us to photograph the child.
