Satisfied that Finn shall never be adept at working the puppets, Uncle Philip devises a new plan, drafting Melanie to perform with the puppets.

Because his town is centrally located among several of the bigger cities in state, including Detroit, Ann Arbor, Lansing, Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, the toy entrepreneur has no serious shortage of customers. He describes his business as a toy store versus a specialty toy store or boutique, which carries more niche items and foregoes toys that can be found in large retail outlets. They were like candy canes in a pool of blood. You know, a lot of my friends will say, 'You own a toy store--that must be fun. Ever so slowly the power was reduced and it settled back to the table. However, the play is not successful, as Melanie struggles to beat off the swan.

The online shop will also include curated toy collections to help customers find inspiration and shop for toys with ease, whether that be by trending item, age, character or brand, among other ways to shop. Because his town is centrally located among several of the bigger cities in state, including Detroit, Ann Arbor, Lansing, Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, the toy entrepreneur has no serious shortage of customers.
