WONDERLAND WINDOWS

It’s a Dayton holiday tradition!

The whole family can enjoy the Rike’s Wonderland Windows in the Schuster Center Wintergarden. The animated elves and animals first appeared in NCR’s New York office windows in 1943, but many Daytonians remember them from their annual holiday pilgrimage to the Rike’s Department Store which sat on the corner of Second and Main Streets (where the Schuster Center now sits). Then, the little ones can visit Santa and shop for holiday gifts at The Tike’s Shoppe!

The Wonderland Windows are available to view Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday noon-6 p.m. They are closed during private events. You can also call 937-228-7591 to confirm hours.

NEW BOXES
Thanks to your support of the Merry Makeover, you’ll see a brand new Rike’s Wonderland Window Box when Wintergarden Wonderland opens on November 23! Later in December, we’ll welcome another new box. Even more new boxes will be unveiled during next season’s Wintergarden Wonderland!

SANTA’S SECRET
While visiting the Rike’s Wonderland Windows at the Schuster Center this season, be sure to participate in the “Santa’s Secret” contest. Santa and his magical team of crafty reindeer made a special stop at the Schuster Center to check in on the elves’ progress. To find “Santa’s Secret,” look for the common object hidden in each window box. You and your family can play detectives to solve this holiday mystery. Once you’ve solved it, fill out an entry form and drop it into the entry box! Here’s a clue: The common thread always relates to Dayton! Children are encouraged to enter.

The winning entry will receive a family four-pack of tickets for the rest of the Morris Furniture Co. Family Series 2018-2019 Season!

THE TIKE'S SHOPPE & SANTA

Created long ago for Rike’s Department Store, The Tike’s Shoppe continues to be a must-see attraction for families during the holiday season. Assisted by elves, children will have fun choosing inexpensive gifts while the parents wait outside the store. The Tike’s Shoppe is managed by YES! for Youth.

After visiting The Tike’s Shoppe, make sure to visit Santa, who keeps regular hours near the store!
