Merry Christmas from Timberdoodle! (Best of 2010 Bloopers)

From all of us at Timberdoodle, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! (And we hope you enjoy our best of 2010 Bloopers!)

CitiBlocs – Timberdoodle’s Homeschool Vodcast Special Edition

We’ve already demonstrated that Citiblocs are a terrifically simple construction set, but have you considered all the possibilities for deconstruction as well? In this video you’ll see that part of our warehouse team had a lot of fun demonstrating how Hot Rocketz can be used to knock down Citibloc towers! (Hint: This is a great family reunion or large group activity.) We apologize for the technical difficulties this week; thanks for bearing with us!

CitiBlocs Snake

From Our Store:

“If you agree with the sentiments of Albert Einstein, that “Everything should be made as simple as possible,” and you long to fill your home with uncomplicated toys that require no batteries and make no noise, other than the ear pleasing clatter of wood against wood, then you’re in for a treat…” Buy CitiBlocs Now Here!

P’kolino Bug Puzzle – Timberdoodle’s Homeschool Vodcast #0020

Puzzles are a vital part of any toddler’s education, but what if your puzzle did more? The P’kolino Bug Puzzle offers the additional benefit of having interchangeable pieces. This means that your little one will be motivated to assemble and reassemble the puzzle resulting in improved hand-eye coordination and strengthened manual dexterity, along with all the thinking skills a challenge like this will give.

P’kolino’s Multi-Solution Bug Puzzle’s smooth wooden pieces are a delight to handle and the bold graphic design means that every finished puzzle is a whimsical work of art. For children 18 months and older.

#0014 – Mashoonga Swords

Foam swords? Really? We were skeptical too, until we saw them in use. Mashoongas are amazing foam sabers built around sturdy polycarbonate core tubes that are both lightweight and flexible. Not merely a fast-paced high-energy contest of attack and self-defense moves, Mashoonga’s game rules give it structure, differentiating it from mere horseplay. Mashoonga is a sport that will strengthen your child’s tactical skills, their eye-hand coordination, and build their stamina. When the rules are faithfully enforced Mashoonga is a friendly, safe, yet competitive contact game of ancient combat skills.

Behind The Scenes

  • Talk about funny; shooting this video was absolutely hilarious. Some of us laughed ’til we cried!
  • Until we replayed the footage, no one could agree who’d won the first few rounds. Daniel did, but only by 1/2 a second.
  • The interviews were almost as fun as the contest. We now talk about Look of Death around the office.

Mashoonga Swords

From Our Store:

“Our Mashoonga Sabers Set, surprisingly enough, has been one of our hottest sellers at homeschool conferences. Is this indicative of the stress homeschooling parents feel or the pleasure they anticipate seeing their children off the couch and outside engaged in vigorous play? Or maybe it was because, as one fellow vendor remarked, “I’m tired of getting hit in the knees with a wooden sword…” Buy Mashoonga Now!

#0007 – Homeschool Conferences: Special Offers and Amusing Problem

Conferences can be a blast, but what if Timberdoodle didn’t make it to yours? Where do you find the conference-specific special offers from us? Grace will show you exactly what to expect! If you are part of planning a conference, don’t forget to contact us to provide free catalogs for your attendees!

Behind The Scenes

  • We were so impressed with the gracious and helpful coordinators at this, our first conference of the year. If any of you are located in the Bellingham area, you may want to check them out:
  • Because of the conference we didn’t preshoot this session, and now I have one more reason to try to do that. None of us noticed the aircraft flying over during the shoot, and it was too late to redo…
  • Despite our attempts to verify door size before making the trek to this conference we were alarmed to find that our display shelves couldn’t quite fit even through the backup door. This crew volunteered to disassemble the door and carry the carts up for us. There was a brief moment of horror though when they realized we’d brought not one or two, but three of these monster shelves!
