SockKids Fight Kids’ Cancer

SockKids Fight Kids’ Cancer

SockKids Fight Kids’ Cancer The SockKids are proud to announce they will be partnering up with the non-profit organization, Friends of Kids With Cancer. Friends of Kids with Cancer is devoted to enriching the daily lives of children undergoing treatment for, and survivors of, cancer and blood-related diseases.  Their mission is to be an advocate for these special kids. They provide them and their families with enormous support. Among the areas:  educational, emotional, and recreational. This is so important and needed as a result of the long hours of chemotherapy, illness and isolation. It is because of the reasons above the SockKids are excited about helping out in any way we can. We will do our best to help this organization, lending our characters and ideas. How We Will Help: By donating a portion of any product sold in our SockKids store. How you can help: Visit our store. In our store, we have books and socks available. We are pursuing other ways for you, the customer, to donate our socks to a child, too. We will announce this project when completed. We also have a family pack of five individual socks, allowing you to have many combinations of pairs to proudly wear and bring more joy to you day walking around! In addition, the SockKids will be actively involved in helping create awareness for this terrific charity. Since the SockKids were created, it has always been the message of the SockKids that all children are special, unique and important. We hope you join us on this wonderful journey and help US support Friends of Kids With Cancer. Our journey has just...

SockKid Socks Soon To Be On Sale

SockKid Socks Soon To Be On Sale Yes, finally. The SockKids’ socks soon will be on sale and are currently in production. These multi-colored socks designed after the lovable SockKids themselves will make you smile. We have enclosed a picture of the sample socks. Flowers, the brightly colored sock, will be the first sock available to purchase. In the following months, we will also roll out (pun intended) another SockKid sock. We also feature Wooly, the black sock, who is nerdy and loves to read and explore his curiosity. He uses brainpower to solve all his challenges and encourages the others to do the same, mostly to unsuccessful  results. Mr. Sock is an alien green-colored sock, always willing to help his friendly humans and sometimes commands an army of dust bunnies to complicate the life of everyone. Stinky loves to eat junk food and candy and is messy but quite full of himself. He loves to stand in front of the mirror and admire his out of this world red hair. He is never shy of causing trouble and having a laugh at the expense of his other SockKids’ pals and especially of his new human family. Buttons is the bright red sock, ladylike and loves to spend time trying on shoes and enjoying the latest fashion trends. She possesses five buttons, one on each toe, each one signifying a different emotion if pushed. Stretch is the oldest SockKid, athletic, and the white tube sock. He is the rock, the stabilizer among the group of ambitious and fun-loving socks. He tries to be the voice of reason when chaos...

The Toy That Couldn’t — Tricky Tommy Turtle

The Toy That Couldn’t — Tricky Tommy Turtle

The Toy That Couldn’t — Tricky Tommy Turtle   It was the ONLY toy I wanted that year. 1967. Tricky Tommy Turtle. Oh yeah, I wanted that toy badly. I’d watch television all day just to see the commercial. I was a starry eyed seven year old back in the olden days, as my children refer to them. As I watched the commercial each time, my excitement about finding that toy under the Christmas tree exploded within my little beating heart. Tell me, if you were my age, and saw this commercial, wouldn’t you want this beautiful toy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLGiI_ltQRE Remember, I was seven years old and I believed in Santa Claus. So I sat down before I even considered doing any homework and wrote my letter to the jolly old man with the colorful red suit and addressed it to the North Pole. All I remember writing in that letter was, “I only want Tommy Turtle. I don’t need any other toy. Please give me Tommy Turtle.” I was so desperate to get Tommy Turtle,  I even altered my behavior, quite a big task when all you know is fun. I quit teasing my older sister. I did my homework when I was told to do so. I ate that awful liver my mother served. I even pretended to enjoy it. Heck, I even ate the carrots. I drank my milk. Kept my room neat.  Went to bed on time.  Faked sleeping when my parents checked on me at night. Brushed my teeth. Cleaned behind my ears. I even studied for my tests…without much resistance. I was THE model...
