Imagination Station – June Store of the Month

Blue Orange Games is lucky to partner with a fantastic bunch of retailers who are passionate about their businesses and supportive of our games. We want to do more to recognize the stores and individuals that make our mission possible. That’s how our new monthly spotlight on an outstanding Blue Orange Games retailer came about!

We are pleased to announce that the Imagination Station in Franklin, Indiana is our store of the month for June! Our sales rep Xavier recommended the store because they just celebrated the 10th year anniversary last month, and are always a pleasure to deal with!


The new owner Debi took over ownership of the store this spring, after the original owners decided to move on. Debi had worked at the Imagination Station for almost eight years, so it was a no-brainer for her to take over running the store she cared so much about. Her favorite part of the job? “Everyday is different. I love seeing what’s new and what kids play with most in the store. And I really enjoy helping parents and grandparents find the perfect gift for their kids.” It is this passion for her job that makes the Imagination Station standout as an example of how to turn a store into a community gathering place.

The Imagination Station is dedicated to providing their local community with fun activities beyond just toys and games. They have regular storytimes in the summer, and a special summer book club that meets in the months of June and July. And my personal favorite event – A night focused on inspiring young entrepreneurs focusing on encouraging kids to develop the skills and abilities needed to  create innovative, creative products. As part of the event, a local college professor comes into the store to talk to the kids and inspire them — motivating them to one day start their own business.

Debi and her staff treasure their relationship with their customers. “The most important thing is the relationships. We know the people, we know the children. We greet everyone. We make sure to ask why are they here? What is special about their visit today? We wamt to know what is going on in their life. Did you just ace a test? Pee on potty for the first time?  – Whatever it is, we wan to celebrate with them.”

The whole team at Blue Orange Games would like to thank Betsy and the rest of the Magic Box staff for believing in our games and for creating rewarding, educational experiences for their community. Congrats!
