Need Ideas?

Sooo Christmas (and Hannakuh) are three weeks away. If you're still looking for ideas for your child, here are some suggestions from us:

Spooner Boards: probably the hottest gift this year for boys AND girls. Two different sizes available: the Freestyle for ages 4 and up and the Pro Model for ages 6 to 7 and up (even for that hard-to-buy for 10 year old) depending on height and skill level. These come in a variety of colors: blue, orange, red, black, green, yellow, and purple (sorry, no pink, but we did ask them to make a pink one in the future!)
                    Check out this YouTube video to see how the Spooner works:

Kickboard Scooters: these are new to us but have received rave reviews all over the country with their unique "lean and steer" design. Like with the Spooner Boards, there are 2 different sizes, the Maxi and the Mini. The Mini is appropriate for 3 to 5 year olds and the Maxi is appropriate for ages 6 to 9. Also available in several colors (and yes, this time there's a pink, yay!) Watch this YouTube video to see the Kickboard scooters in action: 

Moon Chairs:  These were popular a few years ago and now they've made a comeback! And, dude, these things are comfortable. We have pink, lime green, and we just got in a super cute tie dyed one!

Wheely Bugs: these are one of our Christmas favorites! The small ones are for ages 18 months and up and the large ones are for 3 years and up. Right now we have ladybugs and pigs in stock but this week we'll be receiving tigers and mice! 

 Lego, Playmobil, and Cobi: Lego Ninjago has been very popular this year and of course Star Wars is the number one series. Playmobil's newest series is the very cool Top Agents line. The coolest Top Agent item is a spy boat that shoots out darts and floats on water! Cobi is a Lego-like series that has some pretty awesome military sets, including tanks, battleships, Jeeps, and air crafts.

Dolls:  We LOVE Corolle dolls and have a great selection of them in stock. And, after a many year hiatus, we now have Lee Middleton dolls again. Just to be clear, these are not the Lee Middleton Nursery dolls, but do include the Cuddle Babies. We also have doll furniture including high chairs, beds, cradles, swings, and bunk beds to go with both the Corolle dolls and Lee Middleton dolls! 

Kettler trikes: Kettler trikes are German made and will last for years. Kettler also has an awesome pedal car that's perfect for ages 3 to 7 and features a handbrake, is steerable, and 4 wheels. 


Zike Scooter: These new scooters are described as a "stair stepper on wheels" and are imported to the US from some guys in Greenville, SC. Check out this YouTube video to see how cool they are:

New Year, New Fun!

With the start of 2011, we are so excited to try some new fun things at Be Beep! Our first new venture is our very own YouTube Channel! Believe it or not, YouTube is the 4th largest site on the Internet and millions of videos are uploaded each day! We wanted to join in on the fun so we decided to start our own channel! Please keep in mind that we are amateur videographers and there will definitely be a learning curve as we go along! You can "subscribe" to our channel to view our latest videos (you may also view them without having to subscribe). We will be posting videos of product reviews/demonstrations, interviews, and much more! We would love to hear from you on what you like, what you don't like, or what you would like to see, so please let us know!

Our first video is an interview with Larry Hotaling, president of Hotaling Imports, which is a company that we absolutely love! They distribute the Papo knights that are located around the counter at our store and also some of the beautiful dollhouses and castles we carry. In this video he is showing us a new line from his company called Djeco, which is a company based out of Paris, France that makes gorgeous puzzles and art kits. We received many of these items shortly before Christmas but there are some new ones we will be getting in this year! In this video, he also describes the Hotaling line of Papo figurines and does a much better job than any of us ever could! If you are not familiar with this line of figurines, stop by the store to have a look at them because they are so cool! 

Here is a link to our first video: 

The next fun and exciting thing we have going on is "Facebook Deals." We are really excited to be participating in this because it is not available to all businesses. Here's how it works: 

  • On your mobile phone, visit or on your iPhone, launch the Facebook app! 
  • Touch "Places" and check in to your local stores to redeem great deals! It's very easy and you receive some great deals for checking in, so why not? 
Facebook will also let you know about deals that are near you so check it out next time you're shopping! You never know what you will find!

Our first Facebook deal will be on Thursday January 20! Simply "check in" to Be Beep a toy shop on your mobile phone to receive a $5 gift certificate! No purchase necessary! Make sure you tell all your friends as well! 

Here is a link to the Facebook blog about Facebook Deals, this may be a little bit more informative:
