Pizza, pizza, glorious pizza! Whether you prefer it hot, cold, loaded or plain cheese, pizza is a staple for most families!  Growing up, every Friday night, my mom, dad, sister and I would head to our local Gondola pizza in Winnipeg and enjoy family time in "our booth".  We played games like Hang Man and SOS on the paper placemats and the waitresses and cooks knew us as "regulars".  My sister and I would also create works of art that hung proudly in the restaurant's kitchen.

Food and family go hand and hand in my world and that is also true of this amazing product from Comiditas Toys.

Comiditas is a family affair and our supplier, Marcela is very proud of the work her family does employing people in Mexico to produce these fabulous felt toys.  Choose from a variety of dishes including a salad set, pancakes, veggies, fruit, birthday cake, sundaes, cookies and their newest creation, a cupcake set!

Our quest to source wooden toy lines is an ongoing one for Raspberry Kids and we are pleased to be adding not one but two new ones that we love!  Please say bonjour to  Janod, a French brand and cheerio to Le Toy Van from the UK.

Le Toy Van Petit Fours

Both of these had been on our wishlist for some time but it wasn't until we saw them in person earlier this year in Australia that we knew for sure we wanted to bring them in!

Janod World Puzzle

Our initial offering is modest but of course we will expand on our selection as demand dictates!

 

We love the fall bounty and harvest and recently went on our annual adventure to the local pumpkin patch.  It was a fabulous sunny day and the kids had a ball running through the fields looking for their perfect jack-o-lantern pumpkins!

After having thrown a very successful Angry Birds birthday party for our son this year, we are keeping with the same theme for HAM-O-WEEN and we are going to carve our pumpkins with this awesome "how to" link and DIY printables via Alphamom's website.

Now we just have to figure out a way to stop our son from catapulting our birdy and piggy pumpkins as he attempts to simulate his favorite iPad app!
 

 

(Think 80's Meow Mix commercial) "I want Gigi, I want Stella.  Momiji, Momiji please deliver."  

And deliver they did!  New from our Momiji line of Secret Message dolls is the awesome Hello Kitty Crew!

Hello Kitty Momiji Dolls

We now carry over 60 of these collectible dolls and think they make great gifts to brighten up the lives of others or to keep for yourself.  Momiji is a super fun UK based brand that collaborates with artists to produce these little gems.  They even created a Princess Doll just prior to this year's royal wedding and we are so thrilled she is now available in Canada!

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 ...

We were listening to the radio whilst driving the car and a commercial came on.  

Afterwards, my 3 year old exclaimed "Sleep Country?!"  

"I NEVER want to go to that country!"  

"That would give me a headache."

(We hear you, that jingle gives us a headache too!)

Enjoy your $25 Raspberry Kids gift card Sarah!

 

We come across A LOT of products in our travels and we always love when we find a local brand that rocks our socks, or in this case, our pants, t's, dresses, jackets ...

Peekaboo Beans Logo

Peekaboo Beans is a beautiful story about a Mom who has a really great eye for design, emphasizes the importance of play and has very high quality standards.  I've had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Traci Costa on several occasions but recently spent time in her playground (a.k.a. their office) in Richmond, BC.  

Peekaboo Beans is known for their whimsical playwear that lasts FOREVER!  Our daughter is still wearing her vintage PB dress from 3 years ago.  We are super excited about their launch of their upcoming tween line as well and just wanted to take a moment to shout out this fabulous Canadian business.

P.S.  We may even have a Peekaboo Beans giveaway as a Flash Friday on our blog soon!


 

Being a bit of a procrastinator myself, one of the biggest challenges I find working at Raspberry Kids is constantly having to think a season or two ahead.  It is impossible to "cram" the way I did when I had a big test or paper due, instead we need to think months out to make sure we are prepared and ready to service our fabulous customers and have what you need when you need it.  This upcoming holiday season is no exception and we have been planning, list making and ramping up for quite some time. 

Despite our need to look into the future like a fortune teller, we also do our best to live in the moment.  A recent example was this past Saturday which was an absolutely perfect day complete with a sleep in, mini soccer tourney, catching up with friends and working on our monthly newsletter.

Whether you are looking ahead, reminiscing about the past or living in the moment today, may you do it with gusto and surrounded by those you cherish.  

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