New Orleans Welcomes Walls of Books & Weekly Toy

Walls of Books New Orleans is almost ready to go. Elliott and Lisa Sarpy, pictured along with Shane and Abbey Gottwals, are scheduled to open their Walls of Books store on Friday, 8/15.

The bookstore is full of all the same wonderful items you’ve come to expect at Gottwals Books and Walls of Books. Our crew spent the last few days in New Orleans setting up this store and… as you can tell by the pictures… it looks great!

Toy of the Week

Hungry Pelican Learning Toy: $24.97

This cuddly plush pelican has an empty belly and a big appetite for fun! Young children can open the pelican’s big bill (which squeaks when squeezed!) to drop four mini plush animals into his open mouth. Then the crinkly shrimp, squeaking octopus, and rattling fish and crab drop right into the bird’s big belly!

Melissa & Doug K’s Kids toys nurture early childhood development in three key skill areas: physical, cognitive, and social. With interactive designs and multi-sensory features, K’s Kids promotes constructive play and effortless learning, keeping interest high and new skills flourishing throughout the baby and toddler years!
