Fisher Price

When did 1/2 of August fly by?  WOW, summer is almost coming to an end. 

Lily starts Fisher Price Pre-School next week. 

The Fisher Price headquarters is pretty close to where I live.  They use local people to do toy testing, product modeling shoots and have small preschool sessions there.  After I had Ian I found out about the toy testing program and signed us up.  Over the last 9yrs, Ian, Lily & myself (they even have mom panels) have done testing for Fisher Price.  Ian even did a video shoot for them a couple years ago.  When you test for them you either get cash, toy bucks to spend in their store and/or get to keep the product you are testing.  Ian was able to attend their pre-school when he was Lily's age and I think Lily is going to have so much fun.  She is only going for 8wks, 2 days a week for 2 hrs each day...we are super excited.  There are only 3 girls and 3 boys in each session.

Here is a flashback to Lily on 4-18-07 when she was only 5 months old, with the first toy she tested for Fisher Price.  (This one we got to test at home and keep.)

I used to do the toy testing when I was little and I also went to the school. My kids have enjoyed testing products over that last several years. I hope she has a great time :o)
