Happy New Year and Our Hopes for 2015


Hello and Happy New Year to all of our friends and loyal brands we have worked with over this past two and a half years.  Hard to believe, but this will be our third year working together as Linked Moms community. We are so proud of this beautiful community we have built. We wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has been with us from the start and welcome to the newcomers who are excited about joining us this year. 2015 will be an amazing year for us!

These are a few of the brands and causes we have worked with in the past year.

Linked Moms (and Dads) are savvy and smart and they want information. We know our readers well and they are a passionate bunch who love to read. Linked Moms and Dads are somewhat nostalgic when it comes to certain brands like Kisko. Remember that twitter party over a year ago? It was a ton of fun. We are also a batch of informed consumers hungry for knowledge. We joined together to learn about Staples Canada’s back to school products last year. Our Linked Moms and Dads make smart choices with their money and they enjoy learning about new products. They love travelling and they really have big hearts.

One of our most successful chats was centred around tax season with our special guest, owner of Shoebox Be Gone dishing our thoughts on how to save money and maximize deductions for bloggers and self employed business people.

This past year, in 2014, we did several great twitter parties and chats. Some of the most memorable topics were focused on health care – infertility, adoption and poverty are incredibly close to the hearts of both Margarita Ibbott and myself (Paula Schuck). Paula travelled around the world and attended a media familiarization trip in Puerto Vallarta and then flew all over Colombia with World Vision Canada before chronicling the journey on her blog and then running World Vision Canada’s blogger outreach program, which culminated in a Linked Moms twitter party for their annual Christmas gift catalogue. You can read some of Paula’s World Vision Colombia posts here.

We are both Moms to kids with special needs. We have a wealth of knowledge about social media, bloggers, health, education and parenting. We both love to read and travel. This year we attended Blissdom together again. I also attended Blogher in California in the summer and I hit Mom 2.0 for the first time ever in May. We have some conferences and personal education opportunities to look forward to again this year. We hope to see some of you again and meet some of you in person for the first time.

In the summer we hosted a Simon and Schuster summer slide twitter party.


In the spring we did a constant group of health care related topics with several patients groups focused on raising awareness for infertility, IVF, adoption and EEVA1stBC. We are very committed to building a better world for children and our conversations on line are often centred on using social media for social good. That will never change here at Linked Moms. It is part of our mission and a huge part of each of our daily lives. In 2014, our year culminated in a meaningful gifts twitter party that helped amplify discussion about child poverty and the brilliant goals of World Vision Canada.

LinkedMoms Learning Toys Twitter Party March 6th


LinkedMOMs are celebrating spring and March break with a Learning Toys Canada Twitter Party. Join @inkscrblr @linkedmoms and @downshiftingPRO as we launch @learningtoys_ca on social media and give away a few prizes too.

We know how you all love a great twitter party.

This one is Wednesday, March 6th, 2013 at 8 p.m. EST on twitter. (That’s the regular Linked Moms chat time and we are the happy hosts.)

There will be four great prizes given away during the one hour chat. All toys your children will love. Learning Toys is a caring Canadian company http://www.twitter.com/learningtoys_ca whose owners I have come to adore. These are ladies who believe quality toys last and are timeless as well. This is a company that believes in giving back and stocking toys that are socially responsible and environmentally responsible too. Nothing here falls apart after one use.

Learning Toys Canada has a philosophy of play that goes like this – parents help power their children’s play. How do they do that? By providing opportunities to explore, engage and learn, by stocking a child’s room and life with toys that are good quality and designed to spur creativity, build their abilities and help grow strong brains and bodies.

Learning Toys Canada has a great site that has been around for quite some time and has two walk in storefront locations. One is in Mississauga and the other is in Montreal (Westmount). The site itself stocks great brands like Plan Toys, which is an industry pioneer in manufacturing socially and environmentally responsible products. There is a little bit of everything here from Bruder toys to Calico Critters and science kits. Oh, and can’t forget those Kettler tricycles which are perfect for spring!! Learning Toys Canada celebrates differences and stocks a great number of sensory toys and various items for special needs children. (I confess this is what makes me love them even more. Their toys help build everyone’s abilities.) Toys are clearly labelled by category of age, Brand, and play style.

Learning Toys Canada also stocks the full line of Wimmer Ferguson Infant Stim Mobiles, which are completely washable and sterilizable. They also appeal to children who have visual impairments. Learning Toys Canada has donated several of the stim mobiles to Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children. The Wimmer Ferguson stim mobile is one of the only choices for hospitals like Sick Kids because it is completely washable and can be sterilized.

Join us on March 6th at 8 p.m. EST to learn even more about Learning Toys. Please leave a comment here, or on one of our blogs http://www.thriftymommastips.com/

RSVP – prizes are only open to Canadians. See you there.

The prizes are: Calico Critters, Plan Toys firetruck, Plus Plus Midi or Mini (depending on the age of your child) super hot building toys and my favourite – a Kimochis Cat. Kimochis is Japanese for feelings and each one of these stuffed toys also comes with three stuffed emotions that help facilitate communication about difficult topics like sadness, or how do you get over having your feelings hurt.

Please show Learning Toys. ca some love.

Visit their web site, like them on Facebook, follow their Pinterest boards and follow them on twitter.

To win: You have to be at the party actively taking part. Please follow @linkedmoms @inkscrblr @learningtoys_ca and @downshiftingPRO You will need to answer questions. You need to RSVP here in this link so we know who to expect. Leave a comment here too please, just to be nice (not necessary to win) You must be Canadian to win, but Americans are welcome to take part in the party.
