Welcome Readers! As part of our ongoing “Meet the Little Tikes Childcare Team,” today I would like to introduce you to Janet! We are so proud to have Janet as part of the Little Tikes Childcare Team! She has been with the team for just over a year now, although her knowledge regarding Little Tikes products would make you think she’s been here for twenty years!
Janet grew up on a farm outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Kent State University in Kent, OH in 1999 with a Bachelors degree in Speech/Language Pathology and Audiology. To help put herself through college, Janet sold everything from newpaper subscriptions over the phone to door to door sweeper sales (for those of us not from Pennsylvania, a “sweeper” is what we would call a vacuum cleaner. Ha ha ha!). This type of dedication and hard work ethic has stuck with Janet through college and into her career.
Soon after graduating from college, Janet and her husband decided that they wanted to have a family. She has 3 beautiful and very sweet girls, at the fun and crazy ages of 6, 4 and 3. Needless to say, their home can be chaotic, but they love it, and they keep very busy with t-ball, soccer, swimming and basketball! Whew, now that’s a handful!
Janet’s experience with her little ones gives her a very unique and valuable insight into what it’s like to be a parent and a caretaker for children in today’s society. This is just one of many reasons that Janet is such a valuable asset to this team. She understands the importance of child development and would love to help you select the best possible Little Tikes toys to meet the needs of your children. Please feel free to ask for her by name when you call. She would be happy to answer any questions you may have about ordering for your organization, offer you product suggestions, and provide price quotes for grants. She thinks you’ll find the ordering process through the Little Tikes Childcare Solutions program to be a great experience and looks forward to talking to you.
Janet’s favorite Little Tikes toy is the Princess Cozy Coupe, obviously because she has 3 girls! And to avoid those arguments over who gets to drive the Princess Cozy Coupe, Janet also provides her children with other ride-ons that come in our Little Tikes Ride-On Packages. While her children enjoy driving the Princess Cozy Coupe, they also like to exhibit Girl Power by pretending to be Fire Women and Police Women in the Little Tikes Ride and Rescue Cozy Coupe and the Tikes Patrol Police Car.
Janet knows how important it is to find the perfect toys for the holiday, so she encourages you to sign up for the Little Tikes’ 15 days of Holiday Hot Buys. From November 28th through December 12th, Little Tikes will send you a daily email with exclusive, one-day-only, online specials! But hurry, you have to sign up to receive the email notifications.
