Happy New Year from Step2

We’d like to wish everyone a safe New Year’s celebration and a very happy 2012, from our family here at Step2 to yours!

Happy 2012

Family is very important to us here at Step2, so our office will be closed on Monday, January 2nd in observance of the New Year holiday so that we too can celebrate the holiday with our families. We will be back to assist you at 8am ET on Tuesday, January 3rd.

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.
