Richard Scarry’s Busytown Easter Giveaway

by Dawn

There are some children’s books with amazing longevity, and parents can delight in sharing their favorite childhood characters with their own kids. That’s definitely the case with the works of Richard Scarry! Parents today might remember the fun they had with Lowly Worm and Huckle Cat, and thanks to the fun of Richard Scarry’s Busytown toys, they can get down on the floor with their kids to act out all the funny adventures.

From board games to plush characters and awesome playsets with sturdy vehicles and figures, the line of Busytown toys are perfect for imaginative play. For children already familiar with the characters from the beloved library of Richard Scarry, these toys allow them to extend the reading experience and take charge of the story. And honestly, who can resist driving Lowly Worm around in his apple car?

My own children adore using their Town Hall Playset, and since their dad has loved Richard Scarry since he was a kid, they have lots of experience with many of his books. I know they’ll be thrilled to see new characters to add to the fun when they get their Easter baskets in a few weeks!

Would you like to share the fun of Richard Scarry with your kids this Easter? The figures, vehicles, and mini-plush characters all make for wonderful Easter Basket goodies, and the vehicles are compatible with most wooden railway track play systems. These toys are available at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide or online at ToysRUs.com, recommended ages 3+.

We’re excited to give our readers the chance to win an Easter Basket filled with a surprise selection of 3 products from Richard Scarry’s Busytown! One winner will receive:

  • 1 Busytown Small Vehicle Pack
  • 1 Busytown 2-pack Figure Pack
  • 1 Busytown Mini Plush
  • Town Hall Deluxe Playset
  • $50 Toys R Us Gift Card

Leave a comment to be entered, U.S. mailing addresses only, please. The winner will be announced here on 3/31.

For more information on the line of toys and the world of Busytown, ‘like’ Richard Scarry’s Busytown on Facebook.
