About Us

About Us

Escapade [es-kuh-paid]-
n. An adventurous, unconventional undertaking.

Like the definition of the word Escapade, we started Escapade Direct to help provide families with innovative "outside the box" products and services, to enhance learning adventures for children, and encourage kids to think creatively.

Our EscapadeDirect.com store is owned and maintained by a family of dedicated parents, professional educators, and experienced entrepreneurs. We understand the importance of helping children be the best they can be! We give a lot of thought to the products we sell - we read every book, play every game, and kid-test every product. Our products are selected based on their educational value and their ability to spark creativity. So, whether you are a parent involved with your kids, a homeschooler, a parent of a gifted child, a teacher, or a youth-leader — our products will help you to help your children be successful in their education and play... and to be successful with skills they'll use throughout their lives.

We believe all kids are naturally talented inventors, scientists, explorers, and artists at heart. So we're not here to teach... rather, we want to enhance kids natural powers with rich and exciting materials, and mind stretching ideas to try.

When children are having fun while they are learning, they comprehend new information better and retain new information longer. Therefore, our products have been personally selected and tested to empower kids to become independent explorers through fun, educational play.

We take great pride in our business and nothing is more important to us than our customers – really! Our biggest concern is your complete satisfaction with your purchase - right down to the way we package your items! If you are happy, we are happy.

We want what you want - so we understand that you want your items as soon as possible – and we make every effort to get your purchase to you as quickly as we can.

We’re not like other toy and book stores… at EscapadeDirect.com, we go the extra mile to deliver not only the best educational games, toys, books, and gifts – we also include educational website links that boost the educational value of each product. We even include our own, unique creative ideas on ways to use our products – we call this “outside the box” thinking, and we LOVE sharing these ideas with you!

And, we want you to be able to make the best possible choice when deciding which items to purchase, so we provide VERY detailed product descriptions – something you won’t find at a brick-and-mortor store or other online stores.

Look around our website and see what you think! We're sure you will be pleased with your experience!

What Makes Us Unique

Detailed Product

We give you the best product descriptions possible, so that you can make informed decisions when buying. Our descriptions are much longer, and contain more detail than anywhere else online!

Benefit Badges

Our product "badge" system of icons describe the benefits of each product. When you are in a hurry to find a product to fill a need, look for these "badges" in our product descriptions.

Why We Love It

We test every product, and read every book before we include those product lines in our store. We share what we love about each product with you, to give you an "inside" review! Look for the "Why We Love It" icon to read our reviews.

Escapade Etc.

We provide a HUGE collection of free links to educational websites, as well as links to free teacher's guides for you to share with your child — we've done the searching and reviewing for you! Look for the "Escapade Et Cetera" icon as you shop our store products, and get "plugged in" to lots of free content.

Think Outside the Book™

We offer only the best book titles that we've carefully selected! We also provide free links to educational websites based on the subject matter of each book... again, we've done the research for you! Look for the "Think Outside the Book" icon as you shop our book selections, for great "outside the book" resources!

Outside the Box Creative Ideas to Try

Our products have lots of clever uses beyond what they were designed for. We include our "outside the box" creative ideas to help get you started! This is an Escapade Direct exclusive you won't find anywhere else! Look for the "Outside the Box" icon in our product descriptions, and prepare to be inspired!

Our "outside the box" services, unique selection of products, and our total commitment to superior customer service, sets us apart from other companies that only sell toys and books.

Your shopping experience with Escapade Direct is a unique, unconventional adventure...
