"Rubbabu toys are made of 100% natural rubber foam and not synthetic rubber. Natural rubber is the sap of the tree which is bio-degradable and renewable. Trees are not cut down or harmed by the extraction of rubber.

Not only is natural rubber flexible and durable, it is also anti-microbial, dust mite resistant, mildew resistant, hypo-allergenic and flame retardant."

We just got in a new shipment of this wonderful "green" toy brand. We even carry their line of educational balls that recently won a Parents' Choice Award!

Shop Local!!

We are excited to be charter members of Our Local Food South Central KS!   As a local business ourselves, we certainly are committed to promoting and carrying local products whenever possible!    Each month, on the 2nd Saturdays, we hold our Fling Markets which feature ONLY local food, hand-crafted and re-purposed items.  In our store, we carry local milk, eggs, cheese, meats, bread, produce, flour and much more.    We also feature local, natural beauty products and gift items.

When you shop local, you invest in your community, in your neighbors, and in yourselves. It is estimated that for every dollar you spend, twice as much will be reinvested in the community by a local store than a national store!  You can enjoy fresh, tasty food!  Plus, you get to find quirky, one-of-a-kind items that are tailored to your needs.  It's a win-win for all of us!

Stop in the store, today and check out our local offerings.  If you are a farmer or a producer and have products that you think might fit our store, please contact us!   Come say Aloha at our July 9th Fling Market Luau!
