Magic Box Toys – May 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 Magic Box Toys in New Orleans, Louisiana is our Store of the Month for May! Renaud, a member of our sales team, nominated the store because of their passion for our product and their dedication to their local community.


The Magic Box strives to provide kids and adults with quality toys and games that can’t be found in “big box” retail stores.

Since it opened in 1995, store owner Betsy Ordermann has made sure that her local community is at the heart and soul of her business. She listens to and cares about her customers, and prides herself on carrying the products that her community needs. They have a monthly newsletter that lets everyone know about the best deals and community events at the store. And they hold several events each month — story time, instructional classes, guest speakers, and fun household activities. Recently, they even partnered with other local businesses to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!


It is exactly this sort of commitment to their community that impressed us so much!

They understand the importance of rewarding their customers. They have a great loyalty program that gives 10% discount to members AND throws in a nifty, reusable blue tote bag so that their customers can help the environment WHILE saving money!

Betsy and her staff are also very passionate and knowledgable about games, and they pride themselves on being able to offer the perfect toy/game for any occasion. To this end, they divide all the toys and games in their store into 8 different categories (which they appropriately name the “FUNdamentals“) so that people shopping in there store can find exactly what you are looking for:

Independent Play

Cooperative Play

Motor Skills

Visual Learning

Creative Play

Language Development

Logical Thought

Learning through Music

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!
