July has certainly been a busy month for us! About two weeks ago we attended Toy Insider’s Sweet Suite Blogger Bash in New York city. It was truly an amazing experience, and gave us the opportunity to meet so many interesting people of all ages; from bloggers to traditional media reporters. Since I am writing to you from where I live in Barcelona, our creator (my creator as well because she’s my mother) Loretta and her dear friend Leslie took on the task of holding court at the My Sibling My Pal table during the event. However, getting to the finish line of the event wasn’t a walk in the park because we are such a small company. There was no team of event planners in black t-shirts to help us transport all of our products or to help us with the other preparations needed before the big night. In fact, my mom Loretta and my brother Danny took a road trip from New Jersey out to Long Island a week before the event to personally deliver the swag that we would be giving away during Blogger Bash.

Speaking of swag, we had plenty of it! My mother was able to recruit everyone from friends and family to help her make 400 bracelets that were given away during Sweet Suite that read “Peace begins with me”. We were inspired to put this phrase on our giveaway item because it comes from our favorite character My Pal for Peace ’s booklet that teaches about being a peacemaker. The bracelets were given out during the event in hopes of spreading the word to as many people as possible about who we are as a company and the values that we hope to teach young people through our dolls. We feel so grateful to have been given the opportunity to participate in an event as exciting as Sweet Suite, and can’t wait to go next year! Check out these great photos of Loretta and Leslie working the crowd. We are so excited to see what the future holds and to keep in contact with all the great people that we have formed relationships with thanks to Blogger Bash and The Toy Insider. Check out our photos from the event!

Sweet Suite here we come! We are so excited to be a part of Toy Insider’s 8th annual “Biggest Night of Play” on July 12th! The event on Wednesday evening is at Pier 60, Chelsea Piers in New York City where we will be meeting digital influencers, members of traditional media, and other toy company representatives. We look forward to the opportunity to share our dolls in a playful atmosphere, and give all our visitors a chance to get to know us and our products better. It will be like “Christmas in July,” with adults learning about all the new products coming onto the market for the fall and Holiday season. Follow all the fun with #sweetsuite17 and #weknowplay.

We are especially happy to be introducing My Pal for Christmas 2017 in his new outfit, and also our newest character, My Pal for Tennis, inspired by the “Rose” in LorettaRose, who is an avid tennis player! Our swag is an adult size bracelet with the main message of our doll My Pal for Peace: “Peace begins with me!” We hope to see lots of people walking through the event wearing our bracelet to spread the good will of our favorite character. Many thanks to all the staff at the Toy Insider who bring so many people together every year for such a fun and inspirational event.

As the climate is changing and the consequences of human activity on the environment are becoming more apparent, a development company based in Dubai called Diamond Developers has made it their mission to make sustainable living a reality. The developers have created what they call the Sustainable City, and it is beginning to flourish as people make themselves at home within the city. The city is made up of 500 houses and villas on 46 acres of land, and is completely car free. The residents’ cars are parked around the perimeter of the city, and to move around within the neighborhood, residents use battery powered buggies. Within the community they have access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are grown in eco friendly and climate controlled bio-domes. They also enjoy a central city square with shops, local businesses and restaurants. 

Due to the 300 days of sun that the region expects to have every year, solar energy acts as a reliable and main source of energy for the community. Homes are strategically situated to be kept cool by avoiding direct sunlight blazing into the interiors, while at the same time they have solar panels to produce energy from the suns rays. Although the price of one of the houses within this community starts at $1 million, many residents claim that they eventually end up saving money through their strict habits of recycling, reusing, and consuming locally grown food. As time goes on and the city attracts ecotourists, the residents will benefit from equity holdings in the development.

 The Sustainable City is designed to one day be Dubai’s first net zero energy development, but reaching that goal is very contingent on the cooperation of the residents of the eco-friendly city. It’s is so important that the people who reside within this neighborhood understand the importance of sustainability and how to truly live an environmentally conscious lifestyle. Because of this, the developers make sure to sell homes to like-minded individuals who are truly passionate about the fact that this style of living is what the future should look like. In addition, the development company plans to create a school within the city to teach future generations about the importance of sustainable living and trying to inspire the rest of the world to join the effort to go green .

We are like Lannisters, we always pay our debts. We haven’t forgotten that we owe you all a brand new character that we promised a few weeks ago, and we are here to pay up. We are ecstatic to announce that My Pal for Tennis is now available for purchase on our online store . Since we have always been a tennis family, having a great tennis character as part of our My Pal line is really important to us. Not only because tennis clothes and accessories are super cute and fun, but also because we believe that tennis is an amazing sport for children to take an interest in and to learn to play. Our goal is to teach children about positive, fun, and important themes through play, and we believe that tennis is an ideal way to teach children about a variety of values.

Tennis has hundreds of years of history, with records of early versions of the sport being played in the royal courts of medieval kingdoms. Its ability to stand the test of time is a testament to the many benefits that playing tennis can have on a person’s life. Playing tennis demands self discipline and mental toughness. When playing a singles match, you are pretty much on your own on the court, and you have no one but yourself to keep you focused, motivated, and to execute your game plan. Tennis also involves a significant amount of etiquette. Unlike many other sports, how a player conducts himself on the court by following the etiquette of the game is very important. Not only is following tennis etiquette essential for being respected as a player, but failing to be polite during a match can even cost a player real points, and can cause them to lose a match. Tennis is a sport that brilliantly combines being social with being competitive, which allows players who love the game to play it either competitively or socially for their entire lives. Finding this love for sport that can last a lifetime can even be the key to always leading a healthy and active lifestyle. We hope that our My Pal for Tennis character can be the spark that makes a child find an interest and love for this great sport.
