An Easy and Local Shopping Activity

Published by November 14, 2019

Birthday and holiday shopping at Teaching & Learning Stuff is a time-saving activity for you and your residents. Eliminate a trip to the crowded store, another trip to get wrapping paper and boxes, and a long wait standing in line at the post office. Accomplish everything in one easy shopping trip to Teaching & Learning Stuff.

We Help Grandparents Spread Smiles

Shopping is More Fun With Friends

Bring a van full of your friends to experience personalized service right in your own neighborhood. You’ll find a relaxed atmosphere away from the crowds and unique items you won’t find at the big-box stores. With 4 locations, we’re close by.

Please call ahead for groups larger than 12, or for exclusive extended or early-bird hours.

Smart Gifts

Treat your grandkids. With more than 10,000 educational items, we’ll help you find a present that’s a hit with parents too. Our STEAM themed gifts (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) will help kids gain vital 21st century skills.

Discover gifts for boys and girls of every age, and gifts for the entire family.

Finishing Touches Done For You

Free gift-wrapping saves you time and money. We’ll wrap everything up and we can ship your presents anywhere in the U.S. (shipping rates apply). That saves you a trip to the post office.

What could be easier than that?

I think my favorite job from my teen years was working at the old 51st Ave and Bell location! Now I'm back in college working on my Elem Ed degree! Great place to shop whether you're a teacher or a parent!
