On the first Give-A-Day of Christmas, Raspberry Kids gave to me ...

(hint:  it is not a turtle dove)

you will have to watch our facebook wall
and our blog to find out!
Raspberry Kids 12 Give-A-Days

Last year we launched our first Raspberry Kids 12 Give-A-Days of Christmas campaign and we wanted to continue the tradition this year as our way of saying thank you to our amazing community!  In the spirit of the season, we are also incorporating a charitable component to the campaign with proceeds going to a local Vancouver charity.  A friend of ours works at the Union Gospel Mission that assists families in need on Vancouver's downtown east side. 

Watch our facebook wall starting this week for more information as well as our blog where we will host the Give-A-Days!  Please feel free to share and tell your friends who may want to get in on the action.

The Story of Tegu

 
 

Our top selling products for the holidays each year are kitchens, role play and large scale items like the out of this world Educo spaceship!  The award winning Educo Creative Cookery Club is a hit with aspiring chefs and has received great customer reviews



We have also recently added the Honeybake Oven from Le Toy Van and while supplies last, customers will receive a free wooden cake set with the purchase of either the blue or pink Le Toy Van ovens.

So after a bit of encouragement we were convinced to self nominate Raspberry Kids for the Small Business BC's Successful You awards in the category of Best Online Marketer.  

While we do not necessarily consider ourselves "marketers" (we prefer to use the term customer engagement or community building), we would love your vote!  Specifically the award is meant for businesses who effectively utilize social media and newsletters to help build their brand and their businesses.  

It only takes two shakes to vote and the top companies advance to the next round and the winners are announced in early 2012.  

All you have to do is click on this link and then the big orange VOTE FOR button!  Comments are also welcomed and much appreciated.

 

Tegu Jungle Explorer SetWe have been anticipating the arrival of Tegu for what feels like forever and just received word that our shipment is arriving on Friday.  

We love so much about Tegu including the sleek simple lines, the innovation that breathes new life into a timeless toy, the infinite imaginative and creative possibilities but above all else, we are mesmerized by the Tegu Story.

We invite you to learn more about Tegu by watching this video.


 
 
 
Monthly OOTMOB

 
Warehouse Hours etc.

 
From Sue's Desk

 /td>
 

What the heck is an OOTMOB you ask?  It stands for "Out Of The Mouth of Babes". Each month we will feature a cute quote, question or quip from one of our Raspberry Patch newsletter subscribers. Please email your submission to: ootmob@raspberrykids.com.

If we feature your OOTMOB, you will receive a $25 Raspberry Kids gift card.

This month's OOTMOB is ...
My son was "sneaking" french fries from my plate but little did he know I had put some vinegar on some of them.  He must have grabbed one of the vinegar laden fries because he scrunched up his face and put the half eaten fry back on my plate and said "ewwwwwwwwww".  He asked what had happened and I said I had put vinegar on the fries to which he replied "What's Vinigron?"

Enjoy your $25 Raspberry Kids gift card Lynn!

 

Of course we will still be shipping orders in our lightning fast same or next business day timeframe all over with Canada Post but please bear in mind the shipping cut offs on our shipping page on our website.  For those of you that live in Vancouver, we are going to open our warehouse location for pickups and shopping on the following dates and times in addition to our shop by appointment at a mutually agreed upon time option!

Sun., Nov. 27 from 12:00 to 4:00
Sun., Dec. 4 from 12:00 to 4:00
Sun., Dec. 11 from 12:00 to 4:00

Our workshop elves will be working overtime and we look forward to processing your orders whether you shop online and have them shipped or you shop in person at our warehouse this holiday season!  

 

Ready or not, it's happening!  We are starting to hear talk about the holidays, humming carols to ourselves and we've started making plans with our family for some of our annual traditions like the Stanley Park Bright Nights and Van Dusen Gardens Festival of Lights.  Growing up in Winnipeg, Christmas still feels a bit strange without the guaranty of snow but we still relish the making of memories and excitement that we experience at this time of year as a family.  

Reliving my childhood through my own children and their exhilaration is one of the best gifts of all.  Of course their exhilaration comes from toys from Mommy's store :-)

Have a fresh, healthy & fun day, today and every day,
Sue
