If you are one to save things, then hopefully something from your past will be able to pay for your child’s future .
Dust covered Care-Bear stuffed animals, E.T. memorabilia, and Star Wars figurines lay in a sealed rubbermaid container in the corner of my attic. I never had the nerve to toss it in the garbage fearing that one day, as my mom said it best ‘it could be worth something later’. And never have I thought that my toys from decades ago could actually make a pretty penny.
This MSN article briefly describes a few particular toys that have brought in cash (including those from McDonald’s Happy Meals).

Winter has arrived. Hot chocolate in hand, snuggling under a warm, soft blanket… that’s my ideal image during these serious temperature drops. But alas, I know I must make my way into the cold, wrap myself up in layers, and join everyday life. When the little ones in our lives also have to get up & go, a new item from Tadpoles will help them acclimate a little more easily to the severe weather and the need for warm layers.

When Tadpoles introduced The Tulle Collection for Crib and Bed Skirts, Valances and Curtain Panels 3 years ago, we thought it was a timely idea. We saw how much little girls loved wearing tutus and dancing around. We thought “Hey, this is a great idea for our Princess room!”, which was all the rage back then. ( I suspect it could make a resurgence again with a new princess Kate waiting in the wings.)
Little did we know that this trend was only just the tip of Tulle’s rising popularity. We’ve noticed more and more tutus and tulle on the flash sale sites recently. Well this weekend while running around and shopping, we noticed that the Gap had tulle for kids in full force. Printed with stars, layers of border tulle, gathered as ruffles and dip dyed. Tulle is hitting peak (again!). . . and my toddler could not be happier.
Look out later this spring for the expanded collection of colors and styles in Tadpoles Tulle room decor.
We have recently become aware of the Belgian government’s ban on foam playmats for children. This is due to the use of chemicals called formamides in the manufacturing process of these playmats. We have contacted all of our production facilities and have been reassured that these chemicals are not used when producing the Tadpoles brand playmat sets.
In order to provide documented proof, we have arranged for testing of our product through independent labs using the ISO 16000 standards for formamide. There are no formal US government standards regarding formamides currently, but we are confident that our products are in compliance with the international standards as set forth by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which covers 163 countries worldwide.
Please contact us if you have further questions about the results.

Ever wonder what to do with your Moses Basket once baby no longer uses it? We at Tadpoles Bedding have been thinking about the exact same thing. We have been working with mothers to try and develop a way to get additional use out of the Moses Basket that your newborn loved so much. The basket is versatile and durable enough to outlast a baby, (if not two!), and we know that moms today definitely appreciate products that can be used for more than just the first 3 months!
After checking around, we found that a lot of moms are using the Moses Baskets that their babies have outgrown as laundry baskets, and we are thrilled! We support and try to live with “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” everyday. So Tadpoles Bedding is launching a brand new product to make that second life for your Moses Basket even easier. We have developed a convenient and extremely simple Mesh Laundry Basket Liner that fits perfectly in our Moses Baskets. And you can get one for free! With each Moses Basket purchased on www.tadpolesbedding.com we will include a free Mesh Laundry Liner until 8/31/2010. After adding the mesh liner to your cart, type in the promo code REUSE to get it for free!
