You Could Win $5,000 by Entering the Big Imaginations are Cooking Contest

Big Imaginations are Cooking Contest

We want to know how your kids use their imaginations! Now through November 20, 2011 we invite you to enter the Step2 Big Imaginations Are Cooking Contest by submitting an essay of 150 words or less that tells a story about your kids playing in an imaginative, unstructured way.

On November 23, ten finalists will be chosen to receive a new Step2 play kitchen and a video camera to create a video of their kid’s imagination running wild with their new kitchen. We’ll then post the videos on our Facebook page. It’ll be up to our Facebook fans to vote for their favorite video between December 12 and January 8 to determine the winner, who will receive the $5,000 grand prize.

To demonstrate and inspire contestants, we partnered with mommy bloggers Anne McGowan of Deal Wise Mommy, Dee Owens of Two Of A Kind, Working On A Full House, Crystal Rapinchuk of Surviving a Teacher’s Salary, and Xenia Sundell of Thanks, Mail Carrier to showcase their belief in the importance of imaginative and creative play for their own children. Check out their favorite Step2 play kitchens at www.bigimaginationscontest.com.

We Had a Blast at BlissDom Canada ’11

BlissDom Canada ’11 was quite a success. We had a blast at our booth and met some absolutely amazing women. Attendees were invited to stop by our booth for some fun with boas, whiteboards, and Polaroids.

We asked our visitors to fill in the blank of what is most important to them when it comes to play. We then took a picture of them with their signs and added it to our “Play is…” picture wall and to Flickr.

Play is…

During the 2-day conference, we gave away 2 Grand Walk-in Kitchens and 2 Push Around Buggies. Congratulations to our winners: Kate of Little Miss Kate, Jennifer of Kids CBC Parents, Robin from Shop With Robin, and Kim of Kids CBC.

We are so grateful to have met so many amazing women including Jeannine from My Bits and Bleeps who personally delivered the Push Around Buggy we brought to the show to the Women’s Habitat as a donation on our behalf.
