RIU helps out the Toy Bank

February 24th, 2010 by alex | No Comments | Filed in Industry News

During last week’s Toy Fair Room It Up had the great opportunity to donate some of our products to the Toy Industry Foundation‘s (TIF) signature donation program, the Toy Bank.  Together Room It Up, along with hundreds of other Toy Fair exhibitors donated truckloads of toys and other goodies to one of this year’s collection partners, Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S) who will be shipping the products to Port-au-Prince, Haiti benefitting the thousands of children who have been relocated to nearby orphanages following the January disaster in the country.  You can learn more about the Toy Bank and TIF’s donation by reading the press release on the Toy Industry Association’s website.  We at Room It Up were just happy that we could pitch and offer some of our products to a good cause.

Countdown to Spring Break

February 22nd, 2010 by alex | No Comments | Filed in Daily Musings

We have almost made it through winter and Spring Break is right around the corner!  We at Room It Up want to know what you all are doing for SB2K10 and what fun things you have planned for your week of spring-y fun.  Whether you are headed to the beach, going on a road trip or just having a relaxing “staycation” at home I am sure it will be a welcome break to what has been a busy (and cold!) winter.

Does Spring Break still seem far away?  Try some of the below tips to get you in an SB-like mood.

Treat yourself to a mani-pedi… or even better do it yourself at home.  The OPI Brights collection has some fun shades to get you excited about warmer weather.  Try a fun unconventional color like bright orange or lilac on your toes.

Create a spring break playlist full of  new or old songs that remind you of Spring Break.  Just  upload it to your iPod and listen to it while you workout, walk to class, etc… and you’ll be instantly transported to a spring break mood.  For mine, I’m thinking “islandy” songs such as Weezer’s Island in the Sun and Vampire Weekend’s Horchata.  I’d probably also throw in some Rhianna and The Ting Tings for some upbeat tracks as well.  Now I want to know -  what’s on your Spring Break playlist?

Pick up some new bright beach towels and accessories from Room It Up!  From towel sets, coolers and spa wraps to lounge chair covers and terry lined beach totes we have it all to complete your Spring Break vacay.  Right now I am personally loving the Bright Bloom beach towel sets, and so is Teen Scene Magazine as they will have a few to give away to some lucky spring breakers on their “10 States 10 Destinations 10 Days” Spring Break Road trip – which kicks off next month.  You can learn more about their road trip by following them on twitter at @teenscene.

Off to NYC… Again!

February 11th, 2010 by alex | No Comments | Filed in Trade Shows

It appears as though the trade show express is leaving yet again!  This time we are traveling back to NYC to exhibit at the annual International Toy Fair which runs from February 14-17.  We hope to see a good amount of our Toy Store buyers there to chat and show off the new collections.  If you are attending the show be sure to see us at our new location on the upper level, booth#388.  Hopefully the snow stays away like it is supposed to… us Floridians don’t fair so well in that snowy climate…. It’s a good thing I have that big parka to guard against those gusts of wind that seem to be aplenty in the city.  I’ll try to take some pictures and will be sure to catch you all when I get back in the office on Wednesday!

Side Note- You can purchase the above witty print on Etsy via the Keep Calm Shop here.  Love it.
