Horray! School is out! Now the question arises, “What do you do to keep those kids active this summer?” Forget about the pool pass and field trips to a water park. Why not create your very own water park in your play area?
Our Rocky Mountain River Race and Slam ‘n Curve Slide water bouncers are our new versions for Summer 2009! These inflatable water slides set up in minutes; just lay out the inflatable, stake it down, plug in the heavy-duty blower and attach the hose. Now you are ready for hours of fun! Make sure you don’t forget the sun screen.
Kids will love to climb up the center wall to the top on the Rocky Mountain River Race where two slides await. A spray mist keeps the slides slippery while a surprise dump bucket soaks the kids climbing up the center. Sliders can race to the bottom where they splash down into a roomy pool. This water slide was designed with care givers and parents in mind. You can set your lawn chair right in front and watch all of the action, but be careful because the kids in your care are sure to try to get you wet!
Our Slam ‘n Curve Slide allows the kids to slide and splash and play basketball too! This water slide features a climbing wall that leads to the top of the slide. The spray mist keeps the slide slippery to make a splash landing into the wading pool. The shallow pool allows for creative water play or fun with the inflatable basketball hoop attached to the slide. The slide action faces one direction for easy supervision.
Whichever Little Tikes Water Bouncer you chose this summer is sure to be a hit. Make sure you check out our specials page on www.littletikeschildcare.com. This week you receive a Free Multi Purpose Wheeled Bag with purchase of a water slide. Hurry though, this offer ends 6/22/09.

This year our infamous Little Tikes™ Cozy Coupe® celebrates it’s 30th Birthday. Little Tikes™ has sold more than 10 million Cozy Coupes® over the 30 year span. In fact, in 2008, the Cozy Coupe® made the list for the number one best selling car in America beating out all of the on- the -road competion. The best thing about the Cozy Coupe® is that it is 100% kid powered. This is the “greenest” car on the market. Zero emissions and fuel free!
This past weekend the Little Tikes™ Cozy Coupe® was inducted into the Western Reserve Historical Society’s Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum in Cleveland, OH as a made-in America icon. The Crawford Museum will house one of the first Cozy Coupes® to come off the production line in 1979 as well a 30th Anniversary edition Cozy Coupe®.
Following in the line of the ever-so-popular red and yellow kid powered ride-on are our other versions of the car. Little Tikes™ proudly offers the Princess Cozy Coupe®, the Ride & Rescue™ Cozy Coupe®, and a Tikes Patrol™ Police Coupe.

National Police Week is being celebrated this week on May 10th – May 16th. This is a great time to study community helpers and invite a Police Officer to your classroom to have a discussion about their job and what it entails. Have the officer describe their uniform and discuss why they carry different tools. This a good time to discuss the subject of “Stranger Danger” and what they should do if a stranger approaches them. Then take a trip outdoors to have the police officer show their vehicle and discuss all the tools they have within their car. Make sure each child realizes that the police are their friends and are around to help everyone.
Our Tikes Patrol Police Car™ is sure to be a big hit with the children in your care. It would be fun to set up a small safety town with your cars and houses and teach your youngsters the rules of safety. Little Tikes™ has many playhouses to choose from and a variety of packages of ride-on toys that your children will love.
Our Ride-on Package option 4 brings you all of our favorite ride-ons in one special package. The kids will have plenty of choices to pretend to be a police officer, fire fighter, or little princess and you will save $60 by purchasing this package.

I bet you have all been chanting the saying, “April Showers bring May flowers” around your daycares and centers for the past month. May has finally arrived! It is so exciting to see all of the spring flowers and trees in bloom. As we welcome the start of May we are anxiously awaiting to be outside as much as possible; Little Tikes would like you all to consider our Picnic tables for all of your outdoor projects.
For your younger set try out our Endless Adventures Easy Store Jr. table. This adorable play table is also available for purchase with an umbrella for those hot days to keep your little ones protected in the shade.
For the little bit older set, we suggest the Endless Adventures Easy Store Table. This is a great table for outdoor picnics or projects, snacks, and crafts. There is a hole in the center to accommodate our Market Umbrella. This versatile table has an indentation in the middle for crayons, markers, juice cups, or anything else you don’t want to roll off the table. Another great feature of the Easy Store Table is that it folds up very easily for storage.
Little Tikes also offers the Endless Adventures Fold n’ Store Picnic Table. It has benches on all 4 sides and may be purchased with or without the umbrella. This table is put together with bolts and nuts which can be removed for storage. It is the perfect solution for all of your childcare needs – indoors or out.
One of the projects Mary used to do on our picnic tables was plant flowers for Mother’s Day with her preschool class. Children love to scoop up the soil and water and watch their projects grow.
As the weather warms up and we can play more outside, learning centers can be set up at the tables. Use them for play dough, draw and create on them, have snacks , and use them for various other projects. Write to us and share some of the wonderful springtime activities you have planned.
