Kazoo launches re-designed website, partners with local charities

Posted by Administrator on Tuesday May 8, 2012 Under Uncategorized

There’s a lot going on at Kazoo & Co. these days!  We are thrilled to announce our re-designed website that is easier to navigate, leading you quickly to the perfect toys and gifts you’re looking for.  With many new images and new product categories to browse through, you’re sure to find the ideal game, puzzle or play toy for the little ones in your life.  Our newly redesigned website’s look and feel exemplifies our unique, creative energy, and offers an intuitive and easy way for parents, teachers, and kids to shop for hundreds of creative and educational learning toys, games, musical instruments, and arts and craft items.  We are thrilled to present this new site to you and hope you enjoy exploring everything we have to offer!

If you need help, however, remember that we also have a fantastic customer service staff which you can reach M-F at 1-800-257-0008.  We receive frequent praise for our customer service, and customers agree that Kazoo Toys is an exceptional place to locate unusual children’s educational toys that they have seen nowhere else.  Customer feedback is overwhelmingly positive and we regularly receive customer comments like this one:

“Old fashioned friendly service. When I called to check the delivery date of a little piano I had ordered for my grandson I was actually speaking to a person that was friendly, polite, courteous and just delightful. I will continue to buy from this company. They have a real interest in giving top quality service. It has been a most enjoyable experience.”

We are proud of the service we provide and strive to make every experience that our customers have with us positive and enjoyable!

In addition to working to provide the best product selection, an easy-to-navigate website, affordable prices and excellent customer service, we also love to partner with organizations in our community.  Recently, we were selected as one of two stores in the country to receive hundreds of brand new toys from makers such as Schoenhut, Mindware and Hape to donate to the charities of our choice.  We selected the Starlight Children’s Foundation of Colorado and the Ronald McDonald House.  At a recent event hosted by Denver University, we gave out over 100 toys to ailing children and their siblings at a fun-filled carnival!  A great time was had by all and we are proud to have been a part of this special day!

With all that’s new going on at Kazoo, be sure to drop by (either in person or online!) to check out all that we offer!  With our amazing selection of products, free in-store gift wrapping and excellent customer service, you’ll have a great time shopping for the young ones (or those who are just young at heart) in your life!  We look forward to being your toy store of choice now and long into the future!

Kazoo Toys partners with local charities to give away new toys!

Posted by Administrator on Monday Apr 2, 2012 Under Uncategorized

Earlier this year, Kazoo & Company was chosen by TD Monthly as one of two winners of 100 toys by manufacturers such as Shoenhut, Hape and MagicForest, just to name a few!  We have the opportunity to donate these toys to the charities of our choice and to give away a few of the toys to a few lucky winners in-store!

The charities we have chosen are the Ronald McDonald House of Denver and the Starlight Children’s Foundation.  Each of these charities will receive their brand new toys on April 20th and we anticipate that they will bring much-needed smiles to children that are suffering and in poor health.

We are so pleased to have been selected for this program and cannot thank TDMonthly enough for this amazing opportunity!  We look forward to contributing to children within our community and to partnering with other organizations in the future.
