Toys & Tales: A Three Kings & Three Queens Day Celebration For Kids

January 6 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

Registration Deadline is January 1st, 2024.

Free private parking is available via Huntingdon Street.


Immerse yourself in the magic of our annual toy gifting event, celebrating the rich Latinx tradition of el Día de los Reyes—this time, with a delightful twist featuring three queens alongside the kings! Join the Three Kings and Queens as they generously distribute free toys to the children in our community.

This year, our festivities extend beyond toy distribution. Dive into the enchanting world of La Noche Before Three Kings Day with author and Philly native, Sheila Colón-Bagley, during a festive Spanglish storytime. Children can also participate in arts and crafts, all while enjoying light refreshments. 

About the Book:

It’s almost Three Kings Day, and while the grownups prepare a large meal, the kids prepare their shoe boxes for los Reyes to arrive later that night. Will they stay up late enough to wish the Kings a Feliz Día de los Reyes? Or will the magic pass them by? Sing along with a great big familia as they fill up their platos, play their favorite juegos, and wait for the three kings and regalitos to arrive.  This enchanting celebration of a beloved holiday is brought to life through lively rhyming dual-lingual text by Sheila Colón-Bagley with festive illustrations from Alejandro Mesa.

This holiday season, celebrate with your family—receive a special gift, engage in a joyous storytime, partake in arts and crafts, and meet the Kings and Queens in a celebration that wraps up the holiday season with warmth and cheer!

Make sure to secure your spot by registering before the deadline. This free event requires prior registration, as toys are limited. Bring grass or a drawing for the kings and queens art collection! 

Kids who are signed up will receive one (1) toy per kid. Story time will take place from 10:00am – 11:00am and toy gifting will be from 11:00am – 2:00pm Attendees aren’t required to attend both but MUST notify so on the registration form. Complete the registration form above or reach out to José Antonio Santiago Benítez at or 215.426.3311 with any inquiries.
