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.

We are excited to now be shipping directly to Canada and look forward to connecting with all the bloggers interested in reviews and giveaways. We will be reaching out to you soon!

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.

Hoping For the Return of the Big Splash Center?

Since the Big Splash Center was discontinued years ago, we’ve received an overwhelming amount of requests to produce this product again.

Step2 Big Splash Center

We sincerely appreciate the feedback we receive from our customers and welcome any feedback about our products. Because of your feedback, we’ve brought back the Pedal Farm Tractor, the Choo Choo Wagon, and are now shipping directly to Canada. We’ve also passed the feedback about the alternatives to the discontinued Kangaroo Climber to our research and development team.

Here is some of the feedback we’ve already received about the Big Splash Center:

“I am curious to know why step 2 discontinued slide that goes w/big splash pool? They are a HOT item on ebay!” –Anonymous

“BRING BACK THE BIG SPLASH POOL/Slide. There is not one out there that is as durable.” – Lora

“I want a Step 2 Big Splash Center for the grandson and dogs to cool off in, but I can’t find one. I don’t want a cheap pool that won’t endure a southern summer! Be different and market a useful item that lasts! Please consider producing this item again…” -M. Ryan

“Please bring back the Step 2 Big Splash Pool! We had ours for 13 yrs, 5 kids, numerous neighbor and daycare kids before it got a crack in it only because our son jumped on it when it was turned upside down. I am heart broken to find out that this slide isn’t available anymore. Please bring it back!” -Amy

What do you think? Do you want the Big Splash Center to return? Is there another Step2 product that you wish we would bring back? While we can’t ensure that this or any item will return, we welcome your feedback!

**Update**

Thank you all so much for your feedback and passion regarding the big splash pool. Over the last few months here at Step2, we have been trying to find a way to make this product so that it is affordable to customers, affordable to ship, and still has all of the features and quality you would expect from Step2. Unfortunately, we are unable to come up with that right combination, and therefore, we have decided not to move forward with bringing this product back.
