Greetings, Learning Expressions Readers!
Today I want to introduce you to two new members of the Home Office, as well as two of our favorite new exclusive products here at Learning Express. If you ever stop by our Devens, MA headquarters you’ll most likely be greeted by the one and only Doyle Derse. Doyle is a 13 week old golden retriever, and he can be usually be found carrying his favorite dog toy (currently a pink Monstaz) around the office. You may also bump into Maggie Davies if you come and visit us here. Maggie hangs out a couple of times a week in the Marketing Department and loves to chase squirrels and eat leaves during her lunch break.
While they’re not dozing under desks, Doyle and Maggie love to sniff out new products. This week, they took a look at two Learning Express Exclusives: The Zebra Chair and the Get Wired Kit.
The Zebra Chair:
The Learning Express Zebra Chair comes to you in one piece but consists of two parts: the frame andthe cushion. The ultra-comfy cushion is bright pink on the underside and has a soft-to-the-touch zebra print pattern on the other.
The metal base can quickly be folded down for storage or easily opened up for lounging around. The cushion includes a handy built in pocket that’s perfect for storing a magazine or even some dog toys. The chair is 30 inches in diameter and can hold up to 220 pounds.
All in all, we think the Zebra Chair is the perfect pick for any style discerning tween on your shopping list this season!
The Get Wired Kit:
When we decided that Maggie and Doyle should definitely have matching friendship bracelets, making them with the Get Wired kit was a no brainer. While playing around with some electrical wire last year, our product developer Sandie (who we will be interviewing next week) had an Aha! moment. Why not create a kit that uses telephone wire to create fun jewelry?? Thanks to a collaboration with the folks at The Orb Factory, the Get Wired Kit was born! Let’s take a look at how it works.
The Get Wired Kit comes with a number of different pieces, as shown here. They include: 105 feet of telephone wire, a wire styler, 2 coiling rods, elastic cord, and jewelry finishings.
To get started, you need to snap together the two pieces of the wire styler, stick it to your work surface with the provided suction cups, and then insert the end of the coiling rod into the top of the styler. Once that’s set up, attach the ends of your wire to the coiling rod (we experimented with one piece, two pieces, and three pieces but you can use up to five).
Hold the pieces of wire in one hand and then turn your rod with the other. In no time, you’ll have made a unique, gorgeous bracelet! There are lots of different styles you can experiment with, and the included jewelry finishings make it easy to transform your colorful coils into earrings, necklaces, rings, and more!
We hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about this week’s exclusives—Maggie and Doyle give them both two paws up!
Talk to you again soon!
