Earth Day Love from Today’s Parent Magazine

We are thrilled to be featured in Today’s Parent magazine – Canada’s national parenting magazine. In honor of Earth Day, they highlighted our Buildings, Fire Truck and Pink House eco-friendly kids stickers to create a “green” cityscape. WHAT WE LOVE…Today’s Parent.

Grow some fun. (No dirt required.)

BPFK Earth Garden 2

Earth Day is right around the corner and what better way to honor the planet than by recycling paper into a colorful vegetable garden? All kids love crafts (even if they aren’t too big on veggies). Try this out with your little one, and who knows, you may soon have a budding vegetable lover on your hands.

BPFK Earth Day Garden Supplies

Supplies: egg carton, colorful construction paper, scissors and glue

Step 1: Decide which kind of vegetables will grow in your garden. Make sure it’s nice and colorful and full of veggies mama loves to eat!

Step 2: Cut shapes that resemble your chosen vegetables

Step 3: Assemble and visually place the vegetables. Once you like the arrangement, glue down all the pieces.

Enjoy! (But resist the urge to eat.)

BPFK Kickstarter Graphic_20_Blog

We launched our Kickstarter project April 8 and ends May 8, 2013. Our fundraising goal of $12,000 will go toward printing and fulfillment of new sticker designs, trade show fees, part-time sales support staff and implementing a new PR and online marketing plan. Today, we are 20% funded. Yay! Thanks to all who have pledged so far!!!

How Kickstarter works? Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Every project creator sets their project’s funding goal and deadline. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen (and receive rewards). If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers’ credit cards are charged when time expires. If the project falls short, no one is charged. Funding on Kickstarter is ALL-OR-NOTHING.

boxplayforkids.com | brand videoIt’s finally happening. Our very first video for Box Play for Kids. I guess it’s better late than never as the saying goes. Thanks to the talented duo – Gabriel Naylor and Red Epic – we have a short but sweet video that showcases how our ecofriendly kids stickers repurpose old boxes, cartons and tubes into fun, simple toys. Warning: adorable sound track will get stuck in your head.
