You ask, we answer…

Lately i’ve been getting quite a few questions about Stork Craft and Canwood products, so I thought it’d be easier to answer them all in a new post. Feel free to ask more questions in this post and I will be sure to respond. Here are your questions answered:

1) Are the caribou bunk beds going to be available to buy again?

Yes, the Stork Craft Caribou Bunk Beds will be back in stock online towards the end of July/early August.

2) Adam, I purchased the Canwood Whistler Junior Loft Bed in Cherry from Bedroom Furniture.com (www.csnstores.com) June 23rd and was made aware that the bed was back-ordered until July 19th, just short of a month wait time. After reading the previous response regarding the availability at walmart.com/toysrus.com, is the date the same for other retail outlets?

Yes, the date will be the same for all retailers. Thank you for your patience.

3) When will Canwood be available to buy online in Canada?

At the end of July Canwood will be available to purchase online at http://www.walmart.ca/

Movie Review: Toy Story 3 (3D)

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a sportsaholic. Anything sports related on TV I watch, and any local sports event I’m there. But when it comes to movies, I can’t say I’m anywhere near the same way. Going to the theatre to see Toy Story 3 in 3D wasn’t my typical viewing pleasure, but I have to tell you that this movie, in my mind, is a must see. Without giving away too many details, this is an animated movie about the life of toys who are no longer played with because their owner went away to university. The 3D version of the movie really makes the characters come to life and jump out at you on the big screen. If you have seen the first two Toy Stories, you will be familiar with the main characters such as Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of the gang. Toy Story 3 has some new characters and plot twists that are fun for both kids and adults.

For someone who isn’t the biggest movie fan, I say that this was one of my favourite movies that I’ve seen in a long time. It was witty, funny, cute and highly entertaining. It also wasn’t super long (which I find that many animated movies are these days).

I give it 4.5/5 stars and recommend that you see it while it’s still in theatres!

World Cup fever at Stork Craft!

Even though the Canadian national soccer team did not qualify for the World Cup, we still have many soccer fans within the Stork Craft office. Loyalties are divided:

-USA is naturally a popular choice within our US office as well as our VP of Sales & Marketing Dan, though he can’t be that big of a fan if I just had to inform him that the US scored in injury time to advance to the round of 16 :)

-Portugal is the team of choice in our warehouse, as we have a few people of Portugese descent. This is also Taylor’s team of choice because he really likes Nando’s Portugese flame-grilled chicken.

-Brazil is Debbie, Jorge, Carolina and Melissa’s favourite team and is always a safe bet to advance far in the World Cup.

-Mexico is my team of choice as I’ve had several relaxing warm weather vacations there

Some other countries Stork Craft employees are cheering for: Spain (Annie), South Korea (Ed), England (Daniel).
