Bear Hugs From North American Bear Co.

Recently Kobold Toys welcomed the fabulous line of products from North American Bear Co. Nearly 30 years ago, North American Bear Company began as a creative business enterprise of a new mother, Barbara Isenberg, starting a family in New York City in the mid-1970’s. Their product line has evolved and while it still includes the loveable and cuddly bears they are known for worldwide, the company has expanded to include play items, like the princess and superhero capes, and "toys to go."

Today's Beat the Heat Campaign celebrates North American Bear and specifically their Hush Little Baby activity book. The team at Kobold Toys loves this activity book! Your child will be delighted to find a surprise toy on every page that corresponds to the characters in the song "Hush Little Baby"; a felt baby with accessories, a bird, a mirror, a little diamond ring, a goat, a cart and bull, a dog, and a horse.

The accordion-style activity book expands and lays flat for easy hanging across the side of the crib. A red-checked ribbon and Velcro tab closures secure the book when closed.

The" rules" for our summer campaign have not changed. For the next seven days "Beat the Heat" with Kobold Toys and receive a 10% discount on the Hush Little Baby activity book as well as any other adorable item from North American Bear Co. Just use discount code 788FFF at check-out. We love the calico hippo, any of the cute handbags (which you can stock up on now for Christmas gifts!), and, of course, the silly old tan bear, perfect for baby.

Stay cool and have fun learning!

Bow To The Princess, Please

As you may guess from reading this blog, my daughter, Miss E, is not into pink or princesses. She was a knight for Halloween last year and insisted that her eight month old brother serve as her pet dragon. She does not concern herself with the woes of the Disney princesses, and she prefers the adventures of the Swiss Family Robinson or SpaceDogs. At our first playdate with a girl from her class, she repeatedly came downstairs to complain that all her friend wanted to do was dress up in girly clothes... the horror!

However, my neice, Miss A, is the epitome of a princess. Miss A is a beauty with the delicate features and demeanor of the most lovely of royalty. When it comes to shopping for Miss A, I just buy the opposite of what I would purchase for my darling daughter. My sister-in-law does an excellent job maintaining her family blog, and Miss A is always twirling, singing, and acting the role of the princess.

Since I am feeling a little fatigued by blue, dinosaurs, and sassy pirate talk, I am going to celebrate pink today and honor Miss A with all things fit for a princess. Here are some suggestions courtesy of Kobold Toys for the princesses in your life!

It is essential that a princess own a cape and hand bag. The Secret Pocket Princess Cape is pink and purple satin and has pockets inside to keep all her personal princess "valuables"! And on the back is a clear pocket to display her own crest or dazzling designs. Pair with the purple princess goody bag (also available in yellow and tan). Très cute!

Every princess relies on a regal pal to help her mind her "Ps and Qs." Princess Seraphina comes ready for the ball or other royal adventure, complete in her beautiful double-layered gown and bejeweled crown. Maybe you have a little fairy godmother in you and want to whip up your own Cinderalla. Consider the Princess Doll Making Kit by 4M. No pins or needles are required- just a quick "bippity, boppity, boo!", tape, glitter, etc. (all included) and you have a princess ready for a name (she also comes with a birth certificate) and a kingdom.

If your royal wannabe has a crafty side, consider the Color Me Puzzle Enchanted Kingdom or the Princess Window Mosaic. Wonderful distractions/projects when the heat is too much or the castle is under seige!

Finally, for pretend play, consider the magical castle by Playmobil. This elaborate castle even comes with a crown for your princess to wear. All you need is imagination! The layout makes it easy for your princess to play with visiting knights and other royal court members. The castle comes with a princess, prince, white horse (naturally!), and many other accessories. Expand the castle with the Royal Bedroom, Royal Kitchen and Royal Nursery. And if you have my daughter coming over for a playdate, you may want to add the Red Dragon for dramatic castle attacks! It may keep her upstairs during a play date!

Have a "pretty in pink" Monday or if you are like me, prepare to face a blue skort and spiderman t-shirt wearing "anti-girls" girl.

Color Me Happy! Faber Castell!

I am visiting my family in South Georgia this week, and it is HOT. Seriously hot. We are definitely exploring ways we can beat the heat with indoor activities, so this week's campaign celebrates Faber-Castell!

Faber-Castell was founded more than 240 years ago in Germany as a pencil manufacturer. Today Faber-Castell is world renowned for its high quality, professional art supplies. The safety of their products is of paramount importance. At all stages of development and production, the safety and the quality of their products is a primary consideration, and the result of this is a 31 year track record of excellent performance without recall or safety issues.

Kobold Toys' pick of the week is the Faber-Castell Premium Art Gift Set. The set includes: 12 Oil Pastels, 24 Colored Pencils, 12 Glitter Dough, 6 Broadline Markers, Modeling Clay, 10 Sheets of Watercolor Paper, 14 Fineline Markers, 10 Sheets Drawing Paper, 8 Watercolor Pencils, 1 Paintbrush and and a Sharpener. Everything is organized in a sturdy wooden box with removable trays and metal latch closure. The perfect gift for your budding artist!

As part of our summer 'Beat the Heat" campaign, you can receive 10% off your purchase of the Premium Art Gift Set, as well as any other Faber-Castell item, with the code JLJXT. Other Kobold favorites include the erasable crayons and the glitter modeling dough.

Stay cool, especially if you are in South Georgia, with creative ideas from Kobold Toys. Happy Coloring!

Ditch the Plastic With Eco-Friendly Produce Bags

Why should you stop using those plastic produce bags? Well did you know that plastics do not actually degrade? They break down in the environment into harmful plastic dust! Countless animals have been found to have plastic bags in their stomachs.We use upwards of 4 trillion plastic bags per year and those bags are created using millions of gallons of oil! So what's an eco-friendly girl to do?

Start using healthy, lightweight produce bags made with natural cotton. There are many styles and options available these days so finding the right bag for you has never been easier. At Kir DeVries we offer a dozen different reusable produce bag options. All of our bags are easy to wash, dry, store and tote. You can use them at the store to gather your produce, store the produce in the bags at home and tuck them into your purse or reusable shopping bag for your next trip to the market (or farmer's market!). Stop by today and choose the right produce bag for your family. With our new scratch & save coupon you can even save on every order, making Kir the most economical place to shop for your reusable cotton produce bags.
