Teddy Bear Picnic 2010

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

We had a most wonderful day today at the 21st annual Teddy Bear Picnic here in our home town of Coquitlam BC Canada.

The event draws thousands of people every year and this year was no different. After a terrific parade, families move to the picnic grounds which are filled with sponsored tents. Each tent offers an activity for children to do. The highlight of course is the Bear Clinic where a child’s loved one is given its yearly check-up.

The Clicktoy tent featured hands on demos of its game “The Meadow” as well as a very popular craft for the upcoming Father’s Day. We had the children decorate silly fish ties (as well as more normal looking ties).  Almost 300 ties were coloured, glued, stickered and crayoned.  Everyone had a lot of fun, as did we! The weather was terrific – not too much sun, no rain, and just the right temperature. If only every picnic could be so blessed!

I’d like to thank the Tri-Cities Newspaper for organizing this fantastic event every year. We wouldn’t miss it for anything!

Clicktoy Celebrates its Third Anniversary

Monday, November 16th, 2009

It has been three challenging years for this little company.  It has been honoured by having enjoyed the talents of some amazing artists. It is to them that I am thankful for how they brought the vision of “The Meadow” to life. The compliments regarding the beauty of the game can justly be directed at them.

We are now at the brink of greater exposure.  With the launch of the Mac-compatible version of “The Meadow”, customers will be able to obtain the game in their local Apple Store this Christmas.

It’s a funny thing running a company for more than a few days. The new lessons to learn arrive almost daily. They all add up to something difficult to describe. It’s not a job, it’s not just a business, it’s the constant exclamation that something worthwhile should exist. I can barely contain the information I’ve absorbed these past three years.

You are only great at what you practice doing… for me, growing this business has been and is, a most wonderful thing to do. I look forward to getting better at it! :)
