Back to School

back (pack) to school

As usual, Raspberry Kids is THE place to take care of your back to school shopping needs, starting with a must have, the back pack.

We’ve brought back many of your tried and true favourites such as Beatrix New York (more stock arriving soon), Skip*Hop and Crocodile Creek and we’ve also added a brand that definitely gets an A+ with us and the hipster crowd; Herschel Supply Co.

We’ve got cute, we’ve got stylish and as always, we’ve got great quality products that make the grade. 

Choose from tons of different designs whether you have a newbie attending daycare or preschool for the first time or you’ve got a seasoned grade schooler. 

SHOP early for your choice of designs and the best selection.  And if you haven't liked our facebook page yet, please do so as we are going to have an awesome giveaway from Skip*Hop happening soon!



Now that you have your groovy new backpack, you need some awesome litterless lunch gear to go with it. 

This year we have new styles and colours from the perennial favourite, Lunchbots.  These stainless steel lunchboxes are a must in every home’s school lunch packing arsenal.  We’ve been using ours for years as they last and last.  Such a great investment!

Raspberry Kids is known for our fundraising and huge lineup of Lunchskins, THE go to reusable snack and sandwich bags on the market.  This year we secured many EXCLUSIVE and LIMITED EDITION styles.  Snap them up while you can!

Our friends at goodbyn have reinvented several of their products AND have introduced new colours.  The mix and match sets now come in four colours and these are a fantastic system for packing lunches.  The byntos are a snap to use and after a long hiatus, we have a larger version called the goodbyn hero that is a re-engineered version of the uber popular “all in” original goodbyn.

our new website is here

After what seems like an eternity, we finally launched our new website.  We are quite tickled with the result and hope you are too.

We introduced a bold and bright new colour way, improved navigation as well as more comprehensive and informative product pages.

Our efforts have been an attempt to bring our site up to date and help you as a customer have a better experience.

We've also added real-time inventory so you can see at a glance if the product(s) you are interested in are low in stock or have good inventory levels.

As always, we have more plans and features we hope to add in the future.

If you have any feedback on our new site (good, bad or ugly), we would love to hear it.

Simply email us.  Everyone that provides input will be entered to win a lunchbot!


notes from exile

During our web travels, we come across a ton of outstanding blog posts.  We share lots of them on our facebook page but wanted to share this one in our newsletter as well. 

This blog post resonates, as many of them do. 

Some blog posts are hilarious, some thought-provoking, some scary, some sweet and this particular one is about a parent in love with “this moment” as the post is entitled.

As it happens, I know this particular writer. 

She is a talented professional that is currently on maternity leave. 

So without further adieu, give it up for Colby, new-ish mama to a beautiful little fella who has stolen her heart and filled her days.

Here is the link to the piece she just wrote and others including an entire post dedicated to boogers.  Ahhh, the glamourous life of parents.

Once again, summer has FLOWN by.  We had the opportunity to be away for a month on a grand adventure.  A combination of three weeks in Italy where we ate non-stop and enjoyed many sites, followed by a week at the cottage, our annual pilgrimage to the place where I went every summer growing up. 

What a thrill it is to see our kids run amuck, use their imaginations, craft and paint, put on puppet shows and talent competitions, swim all day and fall asleep so easily at night due to the outdoor play, heat and exhaustion from a full slate of activities.  They even picked wild blueberries and set up a stand at the side of the road.  Gotta love young entrepreneurs!

As we turn the corner and head into (dare I say it?) the end of summer, we hope you remember Raspberry Kids as a place to find excellent gear for back to school and of course a place to find unique gifts for all those upcoming birthdays.  As always, we are at the ready to serve you!  

Have a fresh, healthy and fun day,
Chief Executive Mom, Raspberry Kids
