Playing Doctor

Seven-year-old Landon Browne contemplated being a zombie or superhero for Halloween. Then he realized that he wanted to dress up as someone who has impacted his life – Dr. Jay Rubinstein, a Seattle surgeon who has been helping Landon hear since he was just nine months old. Landon was born deaf and Dr. Rubinstein has been working hard these past seven years to improve his hearing.

This Thoughtful Thursday we praise both Landon and Dr. Rubinstein for the efforts they have made toward helping people hear, in more ways than one.

 

Wordless Wednesday: Ah Spider!

Wordless Wednesdays ah spider

Ah, there is a gigantic spider hanging around the Step2 HQ!

This spider was created using the Step2 Ladybug Sandbox, which was discontinued in 2010. Krylon Fusion paint was used to make the sandbox black.  Holes were drilled into both sides of the sandbox to place the spider’s legs into the body. The legs are made out of PVC pipes wrapped in Styrofoam. In addition to wrapping the PVC pipes in Styrofoam, black duck tape was used to keep the pipes and Styrofoam together. Talk about a spooky decoration!

Plus, to continue their campaign for outdoor play safety, Step2 is adding a Safety Sam (also known as the KidAlert! V.W.S) to the prize bundle. According to Safe Kids, Halloween is the most dangerous day of the year for children under 14 to walk. Unfortunately, children are four times more likely to be killed while walking on Halloween than any other night of the year. Step2’s Safety Sam is trying his best to keep neighborhoods and children safe, but we need to continue to spread the word about children pedestrian safety. Educating our children about outdoor play safety and notifying drivers that there are children walking and playing on around the area are two important ways to keep them safe while playing outdoors. Check out additional Halloween safety tips from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention here.
