Earth Day is coming, and that can only mean one thing—you have extra guilt to use as leverage when your kids leave the lights on. Oh, I guess that’s not all it means. But you’re certainly going to want to seize the opportunity to get your kids excited about sharing and caring for our planet, right?
Don’t forget that the U.S. Government has a special page of Earth Day links for kids, to get you started. FamilyEducation.com has some great ideas, too.
Over at the Iddy Biddy Blog, you can read all about the PBS KIDS GO! rev-up for Earth Day, including special themed episodes of many of your favorites, from Curious George to Clifford to Maya and Miguel. And speaking of the Idbids, have you shopped the Idbids Store lately? We have organic cotton Idbids Earth Day shirts ready for personalization; they’re sure to be a hit with your little eco-warrior.
(Of course, we have all of your favorite characters from this month’s eco-themed episodes on PBS here at Ty’s Toy Box, but you already knew that.)
However you choose to get ready for Earth Day, we hope you’ll celebrate!
Do you think that author Norman Bridwell realized—when Clifford the Big Red Dog was first published in 1963—that in 2009 Clifford would still be an international sensation? It’s not surprising, really; who could resist a giant dog who was once the runt of his litter, but outgrew his family’s house thanks to the love of his special human?
Nowadays Clifford enjoys celebrity through Bridwell’s books as well as the popular PBS cartoon. And now Clifford has joined us here at Ty’s Toy Box, in the Clifford the Big Red Dog Store. Come on it and find all of your favorite Clifford characters and all of the Clifford goodies your kids want.
Also make sure you check out the new Scholastic BE BIG campaign, where kids are encouraged to follow Clifford’s big ideas about making the world a better place to enact changes in their own communities. Not sure how to participate? Don’t worry—the site gives step-by-step suggestions on ways to get involved.
Now where else are you going to find a big red dog who does all of that? Nowhere, that’s where.
Welcome to Ty’s Toy Box, Clifford! We’re awfully glad to have you here!
New items are being added to the Clifford the Big Red Dog Store all the time, so check back often!
