The only thing more impressive than successfully opening a 2nd Toy Joy location is convincing Santa Claus to take some time out of his extremely busy pre-Christmas schedule to stop by and help us celebrate! (Editor's note: To be quite honest, Santa owes us one. We're kinda doing his job year round anyways.)

Not only did Santa stop by, but we were super excited to invite Austin Pets Alive to come out with some adoptable dogs! Not only were we able to raise a bunch of money for APA, one of their chihuahua pups, Toboggan, even found his brand new forever home!

Santa hung out for a few hours to take some photos with all of our customers who donated to Austin Pets Alive. Here are a few of the stand-out photos! If you had your photo taken by us and would like a higher res photo (and possibly others that may have come out,) you can email robby@toyjoy.com! Just let him know who you were and we'll send over what we've got :)

Here's the gallery!
