Toy Drive for Tornado Relief!
On Saturday, May 25, 2013, your favorite costumed characters, courtesy of JediOKC, helped gather donations of toys and other needed items for the children of Moore, OK in their time of need.
In just under 3 weeks we have assembled enough donations to take 7 pick up truck loads of toys to donation centers and churches in the Moore area. We have had toy donations ranging from beanie babies to back packs to bicycles.
We have received toy donations through the mail from as far away as Ohio, Virginia, and Oregon. Many of our donations came from children, who were either donating their own toys, or in one instance, had raised money through a weekend lemonade stand to buy new toys for the children in need.
We are very grateful for the overwhelming response from our community to this toy drive. We are sure they are bringing comfort to some little ones who have lost everything.
Check out some photos from the event.

One of our store managers, Chuck Welch, as interviewed by his local newspaper, the Tulsa World, regarding the superhero movie phenomenon.
How did "The Avengers" compare to your expectations?
Chuck Welch: It really exceeded expectations, because this is just the second movie that I've seen four times in theaters (the first: "The Empire Strikes Back"). This was my "Titanic." For me, it's like a great video game, because it has great replay value. A great story and great action, and they found enough time for each character to shine.
