    • Just want us to give you a call when it arrives? - We place regular orders with all our major educational manufacturers and would be happy to add your desired item to the list and let you know when it arrives.  Timing does vary depending on the product, but usually would not take more than 2-3 weeks.

Shop Online

We offer a nice selection of our educational products on our ecommerce site ReallyGreatToys.com.  While this is a good representation (over 6,000 teacher products visible on RGT), it represents only about half of what we have to offer in our vast PTRC!  We hope you'll check out our on line offerings, but please don't rule us out if you don't find what you are looking for .... chances are good that we do have it!  It is important to note that in-store promotions generally differ from sale prices and promotions on our website.  Read about our Price Matching Policy here.
