Stork Craft will be attending the ABC Kids Expo

From the website ABC Kids Expo:

The ABC Kids Expo is the primary trade show for the juvenile products industry.

It was founded as a partnership between independent specialty store retailers and the manufacturers who support them, as a method in which to promote the long-term sustained growth of the industry as well as to provide valuable opportunities for networking and education.

The main focus of the show is on products from newborn through teen, predominantly in the areas of furniture, bedding, room décor, baby gear, gift and layette, toys and related accessories.

Stork Craft is looking forward to being at the show and showcasing our new products! We hope to see you there too. Feel free to stop by Booth 942 and say hi.

Stork Craft Supports ‘Run For One Planet’


Stork Craft Manufacturing Inc. is proud to support Environmental Action – Run For One Planet against climate change. Coming from the website:

‘The Run for One Planet is an ongoing run endeavour focused on “Inspiring Environmental Action, One Step at a Time”.

The Run for One Planet 2008/2009 North America Tour is our kick-off initiative – a carbon neutral year-long run around the continent by two Canadians, Matt Hill and Stephanie Tait, to inspire Environmental Action. Our goal is to run 1 marathon each per day, inspire 1 million new Actions for Earth and raise $1 Million for our Legacy of Action’

Stork Craft employees filled out the ‘Action Challenge’ at work, committing to at least 1 of 10 actions to minimize our carbon footprint. The actions included:
-Eat Local and Organic
-Turn Off Your Car
-Eliminate Plastic Bags
-Use Green Cleaners
-Turn Off the Lights
-Turn Off the Taps
-Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
-Compost
-Bring Your Own Bottle
-Teach Your Children Well

Personally I agreed to a few of the actions such as ‘Turn Off Your Car’ and ‘Eliminate Plastic Bags’. Altogether Stork Craft is very proud to help the environment and reduce climate change through its employees’ actions. Stork Craft also encourages you and/or your company to also be a part of the ‘Action Challenge’.

You can download the form here: http://www.runforoneplanet.com/downloads/R41P_Steps_Form.pdf and post it on the bulletin board in your lunchroom at work, or bring it home with you and post it on the fridge. Hopefully together we can all help make a difference one small step at a time.

Stork Craft Introduces All-New Bunk Beds!



I am pleased to give Stork Craft’s Blog Followers a first glance at the brand new Stork Craft Bunk Beds. These have not hit the store shelves yet, but when they do they are sure to be a major hit for parents who want to purchase a quality bunkable bed at an affordable price. I think most of you agree with me that these are very attractive beds. I can’t wait for them to hit retail stores across North America!

FAQ: What comes in a Stork Craft Stages Crib box?



Being in charge of Stork Craft online, I have come across a variety of interesting questions. Although I see unique questions on a daily basis, the one question that comes up time after time is:

“What is included with a Stork Craft Stages Crib?”

This is a very valid question. Stages cribs are a hot-seller for Stork Craft as they provide the customer with outstanding value and longevity out of their baby nursery. There are a variety of Stages Cribs:

2-in-1 Stages Crib (like the Ariel Stages Crib) converts from a crib to a full-size bed.

3-in-1 Stages Crib (like the Aspen Stages Crib) converts from a crib to a day-bed to a full-size bed.

4-in-1 Stages Crib (like the Chelsea Stages Crib) converts from a crib to a toddler bed to a day-bed to a full-size bed.

To answer the question about what is included in the Stages Crib box, Stork Craft Stages Cribs come with everything you need to convert the crib to different stages but do not come with the bed rails or bed frame to convert to a full-size bed. Full-size bed rails must be purchased separately from a bed rail retailer. Full-size bed frames with a double ended attachment can also be purchased from a bed retailer.

Whichever Stork Craft Stages Crib you decide on, you have chosen a crib that will grow with your child through every stage of their childhood.
