Charity Day: Friday, May 28th to support SLP ECFE

Charity Days are one of our favorite events at kiddywampus -- it's a designated day we give 20% of our retail sales* to a specific charity.

This Friday we've chosen St. Louis Park ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education), a local organization that offers classes, events and support for children ages birth through five and their parents or caregivers. Parent and child enjoy play and learning activities together under the guidance of a licensed early childhood teacher. We love the impact ECFE has on our local kids, families and community and are happy to support its mission.

*retail sales only, does not include gift cards, on-line purchases, parties, OS2, kiddyplay or special events.

slumber party, kiddywampus style!

We're always on the lookout to do something when WAMSO (the Minnesota Orchestra Volunteer Organization) asked us to design a table setting in true kiddywampus style, we were thrilled. Each year WAMSO hosts "Settings of Note," a beautiful event that raises funds for the Minnesota Orchestra (including Kinder Konzerts, the program that exposes young children to classical music). The event was hosted at IMS and included dozens of expertly designed tables in a wide variation of themes.

After much deliberation, we chose the theme "Girl's Birthday & Pajama Party," and created a sparkly, glittery & imaginative table complete with party favors and pajama party games. We hope the winner and her guests have as much fun with the table setting as we did in creating it!
