About was too long – here’s the change-up.
I have been in the specialty children’s industry for a very long time – almost 15 years. My background in varied – sales, buying, books, gifts, toys, educational, schools, authors, writing, marketing, pr, blogging and most importantly, playing.
I have recently started a blog for OC Family reviewing toys (http://blogs.ocfamily.com/author/octoytales/) and pointing readers toward independent retailers who are carrying said product. This has allowed me to redefine Kidstuff I LOVE to be more about me and the stuff I encounter, either through my day-to-day with teenage kids, or through my work. Kidstuff I LOVE is evolving into the stuff I love doing with my kids. The stuff my kids are doing that I LOVE (sparing the reader the stuff that they are doing that I don’t love so much.) I try to infuse my experiences with humor, spice, and not sickly sweet nice.
