Santa lets us cyber elves skip the pointy shoes and little hats, but we are working just as hard as his elves up north.
The lights in our office rarely go out and the computers hum away all night long. Yup – this cyber workshop is pretty much a 24 hour a day operation. Christmas is coming and we are doing our best to help get some of the coolest toys delivered on time!
At Pedal Cars and Retro Collectables, we sell all kinds of fantastic ride on toys like pedal cars, golf carts, etc and even a special caboose trailer bike for kids and adults with special needs. And for the retro crowd, we have Crosley record players, coke machines, retro phones and more.
So of course Christmas is our busiest time of year. I tell Jackson that Grandma is too busy to play because she is helping Santa Claus and if she doesn’t work really hard the kids won’t get their presents! (He misses his Grandma – she is lucky if she manages to get four hours of sleep a night right now let alone have extra time to play with our kids.)
When we found out that Susan and I were both expecting babies in the beginning of the shopping season we nearly fainted. And our poor mom is getting the worst of it as she works around the clock to make up for our busyness with the babies. We have finally had to hire some staff for our stores. Up until this season, we have managed to do it all ourselves. But with two newborns, we simply had to get some help.
This season, we have been blown away by how popular the Big Wheel has become. It is our most popular product by far at the moment. They are sold out everywhere – but we have them!!! (Even we are sold out of the Princess Big Wheel, but we do have the Original Big Wheel in stock.)
Toy trends sure are funny. One season something can just become such a hot item. Perhaps the Big Wheel is so popular this year because it is made in the USA.
Two years ago we bought Jackson a Big Wheel and he loves it. Julia loves it too and now Jackson can’t get it back from her!
So what about you? Are you busy this holiday season? What hot toys are you buying your kids?
