Ornament Keepsakes of Favorite Toys Make Parting with Them Easier

At the Afternoon Playdate BlogHer ’11 event in August, we met Leanne, owner and editor of the blog Rave and Review. She shared with us how much her children enjoy Step2 toys, but as time passes, it’s hard to keep these products in her house once the kids have outgrown them. So to capture the memories of her children’s favorite toys, she makes ornaments for her Christmas tree.

“I started doing these a few years ago as a tribute to my kids’ favorite toys so when we eventually had to part with them we would still have a fun little keepsake to remember all the hours spent playing with them,” Leanne said.  “Now it’s become such a tradition that I get requests from other people asking me to make their kids favorite toys, too.”

Much to our surprise, she offered to make us an ornament of a Step2 kitchen. And look what arrived at our office the other day:

Inside we found a miniature version of the LifeStyle Classic Cuisine Kitchen. We think it’s pretty spot on! Leanne even captured the “woodwork” and fruit baskets.

“Since our first toy ornament we ever made was a Step2 kitchen, I thought it would be fitting to send you one to enjoy, too,” she said. Well, we are so thankful for this Christmas gift. We have already put it on our office tree.

Step2 is a Proud Sponsor of BlissDom Canada ’11

To celebrate the launch of Step2.com in Canada, we are heading to Toronto this week for BlissDom Canada ’11. We’re inviting all attendees to stop by our booth (#12) to learn about the toys now available in Canada, to enter to win a Grand Walk-in Kitchen or Push Around Buggy, and to add to our exciting picture wall.

We think Step2 products are fun, playful, and enhance creative play (hey, some of us have even been caught playing with the toys at our office!), so we’re launching a campaign at BlissDom Canada called “Play is…” We will be asking moms to fill in the blank of what is most important to her when it comes to play. We’ll then take a picture of her with the sign and add it to our “Play is…” picture wall. We’ll also be uploading the photos to Flickr.

We want to make sure all the ladies that stop by our booth have some fun (after all, you’re never too old to play). So we’ll also be giving away red feather boas to wear during the conference and then take home to your kiddos.

This will be our second BlissDom event. We attended to BlissDom ’11 (the US version in Nashville) this past January. However, this is the first time we are sponsoring and having a booth at a blogger event.

We’ll be tweeting live from the event. Follow along with the hashtags #playis and #blissdomcanada.

About BlissDom (from blissdomcanada.com)

Blissdom Canada is Canada’s first and only social media conference for women, by women; it’s an exploration and celebration of how, why, and in what ways women use the Internet and other digital tools to pursue, achieve and hold on to their bliss. Women from across North America will gather to discuss what it means to be a Canadian woman networking, publishing and pursuing both business and pleasure in a borderless online world. All this, and plenty of opportunity for fun, frolic and friendship, under the bright red maple leaves of autumn in Canada’s largest city.
