I just finished attending my third Licensing Expo at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas. I WROTE THIS BLOG in 2009. At this year’s event, I saw more than ever that whatever was old is new - or reimagined - again. So … I thought I would rerun these thoughts. Only thing maybe changed is popularity of Jonas Brothers? What licensed characters do you remember from childhood?

Got me thinking of the licensed characters of my childhood, and those that came and went during the “licensing years” of my three children over 20 years ago.

Children’s club was a big success! We haven’t attended in NYC regularly for the past 5 years and are just now starting to build a schedule to attend every March and October show. Lots of our clients who missed us are excited to be ordering again, especially from our new collection of extremely affordable styles.
We’re still committed to being made in USA using natural materials and fun-tastic designs. If you missed us last week, you can still get the catalog, just email

Here is a link (http://www.cpsc.gov/businfo/frnotices/fr11/stayleadrev.pdf) to the Federal Register Notice announcing the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) decision to extend the existing stay of enforcement on testing and certifications of the total lead content in children’s products (except for metal components of children’s metal jewelry) until December 31, 2011.

CPSC is in the process of notifying manufactures of the Database and encouraging them to “register” a company representative who will receive information about complaints pertaining to their company’s products. I strongly encourage each of you to nominate and register such an individual so that you will have an opportunity to timely respond to any published complaint.

For your information, a press release from the CPSC announcing the Database is available on their website (www.cpsc.gov)

Julia Beck (founder of the Forty Weeks consulting firm that specializes in the expectant and new moms market) reminds me of all the best qualities of Dolly Levi. She’s a dynamic, energized marketing matchmaker who arranges things … like creative partnerships between complementary brands, major brand-building events, innovative promotional campaigns, one-of-a-kind strategies, advertorials, image makeovers and effective ways to match women with products and services, from fertility through first years with new life.

Lately, many of the top marketing minds have been stating publicly that businesses should be redirecting their resources away from their website and into Facebook, specifically Facebook fan pages. ‘Skittles’ now uses its website as solely a landing page, redirecting traffic to its social media platforms, specifically Facebook.
