It is with a heavy heart that Tech Castle announces our store’s temporary closure effective Tuesday, March 24th, 2020 until further notice. This action is in accordance with a statewide mandate instituted by Governor Andy Beshear to combat the COVID-19 outbreak.

Please note that Tech Castle Birthday Club sends out keys only once per month. Please sign up prior to the last week of the month that precedes your birthday to ensure that you will receive your key for this year.

Birthday Club History & Future
By far, one of the most popular traditions of Johnny’s Toys was the Birthday Club. Customers could register their children’s name and birthday with the store and when their birthday was near, they would receive a card in the mail with a key. This key would allow them to open the door to the castle and pick a toy from inside the castle.
Tech Castle will continue this tradition of the Birthday Club. Our staff has many wonderful memories of coming to the castle every year on their birthday and would like to share that with our customers. We look forward to seeing customers come in and share their memories with us or be able to experience it for the first time.
We have thrown in a bit of a modern twist though. Johnny’s limited the Birthday club from ages 1-10, we however, allow anyone, at any age, to sign up. We have toys for children of all ages as well as gifts for the adults. You’re never too old for the Birthday Castle! You can sign up in store at our Birthday Castle kiosk or online.
Improved Birthday Castle Tradition!
As of January 1st, 2018, if you live outside our shopping area, we will digitally email our birthday cards with an invitation to come to the castle! You can come in to the store, pick out your own key and come inside our magical castle to choose a special birthday gift!
If you live within our shopping area, you will still receive a mailer with key just as before and can bring in your key to redeem your gift at the castle.
Emailing some of the longer distance keys will alleviate the post office issues we’ve had with keys not being delivered and will also allow us to stand by our company core values of being green. And being we are Technology based company, using email just makes sense!
Be on the look out for an email or mailer to arrive soon!

I Did Not Receive My Castle Key
