Step2 Supports the Queen of Big Dreams

There are many words that describe Savanna Grace Stuntz-Grosso; a few that come to mind are dedicated, ambitious and generous. This incredible teen placed 3rd in the Ohio Junior Teen division at the National American Miss Pageant in Columbus, Ohio on July 21, 2014. Savanna is now qualified to participate in Nationals in Hollywood, California this Thanksgiving. In order to cover the expenses for this competition, she decided to fundraise.

Savanna is selling advertising space in the National Program Book for the pageant. Step2 is a proud supporter of this wonderful teen. We believe children can achieve their dreams and we want to help Savanna to reach hers.

The National American Miss Pageant means a lot to Savanna because it helped her develop the professional skills she will need as she conquers high school and enters college. Ever since Savanna was six years old, she has wanted to work with endangered cheetahs. She plans on volunteering at the Akron Zoo during her junior and senior year of high school and has many other plans to make her dreams a reality.

Good luck, Savanna! Your hard work will always help you to succeed.

Calling All Little Drivers: New Foot-to-Floor Coming Fall 2014!

Rev your engines!  With the global license from Ford Motor Company, Step2 is launching the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Foot-to-Floor that will wow parents and children alike!  With its monstrous wheels, large grill and rugged styling, Step2’s Raptor foot-to-floor lets miniature drivers experience the real deal!   Available to global customers in 2014, Step2 showcased the Raptor at the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany.

Step2 modeled its Raptor foot-to-floor after the high performance F-150 SVT Raptor pick-up truck.  As the number one selling truck in the US for 37 years, the look and the name of the F-Series are both recognizable and loved.  “We’re excited to launch the Ford Raptor this fall and think kids are going to love pretending they’re in the driver’s seat of this classic American truck,” says Step2’s Chief Marketing Officer Jerry McDermott.

Drawing from it’ success in the foot-to-floor category, Step2 brings the innovative 360 degree turning to the new Raptor.  Kids can propel themselves in any direction and turn corners with ease thanks to the additional 5th wheel.  The two opening doors, steering wheel and honking horn are fun features that build little drivers’ sense of independence.

Step2 extends the life of the product and adds additional value with an attachable handle and floor board that inserts easily into the car. For the littlest drivers who aren’t ready to propel themselves, they can hop aboard and take a ride with mom or dad pushing comfortably behind.  Cup holders for drinks on the go and storage in the bed of the truck for other toys make a ride around the neighborhood that much nicer.
