March 5, 2008

Little Tikes is pleased to announce the arrival of our NEW Spring 2008 Childcare Solutions Catalog!  We know that many of you have been waiting patiently to see our exciting new products and brand new packages which have been created to help you save money while shopping with us.

When thinking about making improvements to your childcare, something you may want to focus on is the outdoor climbing equipment that you have.  As many of you are aware, within the last few years several restraints have been issued regarding outdoor playground equipment in public locations.

Little Tikes is proud to be able to offer you two outdoor playgrounds that meet or exceed the safety requirements of the ASTM 1487, Safety Specifications for Public Playgrounds; the Climbing Towers Playground (#401A) and the Activity Quest Climber (# 400Z). Now you can feel good about the playground equipment that you are providing to the children in your care because these climbers are Safety Standard Approved for your childcare needs.  We are also excited to be offering a Climber Variety Pack, in which you receive 1 of the Climbing Towers Playground and 1 of the Activity Quest Climber at a savings of $200.00! 


In our NEW Spring 2008 Childcare Solutions Catalog, you will find 40 different packages which save you money versus buying the products individually.  And if you visit our website,, you will find over 100 different packages that can save you money! One of our exciting new packages this year is the Teeter Totter Variety Pack.  This Variety Pack comes with 1 Classic Alligator Teeter Totter and 1 Classic Whale Teeter Totter and saves you $25.00! 


But you won’t want to miss out on our all time best selling package either, which is our Ride-On Package Option 4. This #1 selling package includes our iconic Cozy Coupe® II™ Car, a Ride & Rescue™ Cozy Coupe®, a Princess Cozy Coupe®, a Tikes Patrol Police Car, a Classic Tough Tire Trike, a Classic Sport Cycle and an Electronic Sounds Gas Pumper, and saves you $70.00 off of the regular retail prices.

3 Award Winning Toys From Little Tikes!

August 15, 2007



           As a childcare provider, you know how hard it is to pick out the best toys for your children. They have to be perfect: toys that are fun, educational, safe, and durable. You want toys that you know the kids are going to love and will never get tired of, toys that will keep them busy while you’re fixing their snacks or cleaning up after them. You don’t want to spend your money on something that will break easily or that the kids will get bored with after a half an hour!

            This is when you need to turn to the experts: people that study, test, and review toys for a living so that parents and teachers and daycare owners can make informed, confident purchases. This is when you turn to Joanne and Stephanie Oppenheim, two of the most trusted child development experts, their panel of judges and kid-testers, and the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio.


            With no ads or entry fees, customers can be assured that the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio is filled with only the best products out there! The toys are tested and reviewed by experts, parents, and kids with all different lifestyles and backgrounds so they can get a diverse set of opinions. There are two different awards given out by the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio: the Platinum award and the Gold Seal award.


            Little Tikes is proud to announce that we were the recipients of three Oppenheim Toy Portfolio awards for 2008! Our Obstacle Course Bouncer and Sand & Sea Play Table both won the Gold Seal award and our Mom & Me Walker received the Platinum award! And if you purchase the Obstacle Course Bouncer by August 20th, Little Tikes will give you a free Roller Bag which makes transporting your bouncer even easier! (offer not valid on previous purchases). (Mom and Me Walker not yet available for sale).
