Shannon Kelley of Shannon Kelley Photography has offered to do a free photo shoot using Cutie Tooties customers as her models. Your baby will be photographed in a cute diaper that we provide. Please also feel free to bring 1 favorite diaper of your own for your baby to be photographed in. We simply ask that you choose a diaper that Cutie Tooties carries. This is important because we may choose your child's photo to decorate our store. In exchange for your time and for allowing your child to model for Cutie Tooties, you will get a FREE 5 x 7 photo of your child! You will also have the option of ordering other photos if you wish. No order is required.

Cutie Tooties has wooden toys that are all made in the U.S.A. !

Maple Landmark Toys describes their company this way:
"While much is being made of the dangers of imported products, there are alternatives. We craft a wide range of wooden toys, games, and gifts made right here in Vermont, USA. We follow American standards of product safety, employee safety, and environmental protection. The shortcuts of doing it any other way are not what Maple Landmark is about.

We design our toys to provide the best in hands-on learning and exploration. Surely it is becoming an electronic world but children still need to learn basic manipulation and construction. Our products can be found in toy stores, gifts shops, catalogs and online merchants throughout the United States and beyond."

Some of the toys now available in our store are pictured below:

Natural Baby Bell Rattle, Wooden Farm & Cars Jigsaw Puzzle

4 Colors of mini-mites cars

So before I get into products, I wanted to give you a quick overview of the trip. If you want to skip down to the new products, just scroll. Vegas was SO busy. I thought I was getting a break by going on this trip, but I was VERY wrong. On my first day at the tradeshow, we drove to the convention center (pictured below) only to find that there was nowhere to park. So Brandon dropped me off so I could make my meeting and then he drove back to the hotel. Let me say, renting a car in Vegas was a total waste! We quickly found that the monorail was our best option for transportation. The only problem was that the station was a 15-20 minute walk from our hotel. That in itself wasnt such a big deal. The issue was the SIZE of the tradeshow. We were told that if you walked the upstairs and downstairs consecutively, you would walk 7 miles.

So this was our day: Walk to the monorail station. Ride. Walk from the monorail station to the convention center. Walk the convention center. Walk to monorail station. Ride. Walk from monorail station back to hotel. Rest for 1 hour. Walk to monorail station. Ride. Walk to meeting/social gathering. Walk back to monorail station. Ride. Walk from monorail station to hotel. Sleep. Start over.

Next year, we are taking a pedometer. I carried an extra pair of shoes in my backpack and rotated. I was wearing Birkenstocks and Crocks, and my feet ACHED! It was insane.

Another interesting thing about Vegas is the crazy over-pricing! We paid $26 for 2 footlong subs & 1 soft drink at Subway. They are 2 for $10 at home. A 20 oz. soft drink was $3. It was just nuts!

Our hotel the Monte Carlo was beautiful outside and the lobby was very grand looking.

The funny thing is that the hotel room was not nearly as nice as a Hampton Inn! And the bed was uncomfortable and small. Vegas is definitely big on appearance and low on substance. Not that I expected anything different, but when you see it face to face, there is still an element of surprise.
