Well, it's September.  I hope everyone had a good Summer and had the opportunity to take some time off and spend it with their family.  Now all the kids have gone back to school and resumed some of their favourite activities.  Also, the temperature has cooled down to where we feel comfortable shipping all of our products!

Well, Summer is finally here!  I hope everyone gets the opportunity to take some time off this Summer to spend it with their families.  There are many products on this site that cannot be shipped until it cools down out there but, if you live in the Ottawa area, you are welcome to pick up the item you need.  We also offer free delivery in Orleans.  Have a great Summer everyone!

Hi Everyone!

 

Not only was Pumpkins and Peanuts busy this Summer developing new products, but we were also busy working on a new website format!  With our expansion, the old theme was not a good fit for us any more.  We hope you like it too.

Hi Everyone!

 

Pumpkins and Peanuts is very excited to announce the introduction of another product that will hopefully help many parents - Baby's Bath Tea!  We all know that sometimes it is difficult to calm a fussy baby.  Try relaxing your little one in our Baby's Bath Tea, containing only three simple ingredients: oatmeal, which is know to relieve the itch of rashes and dry, flaky skin, calming chamomile, and soothing calendula.  The scent is pleasantly mild because it only comes naturally from the oatmeal and herbs.

 

As a mom of two boys, it is refreshing to have a bath product for them that does not contain lavender!  I love that no scent of any kind has been added.  I also love that these bath teas are made of unbleached cotton and do not fall apart when my little boy plays with them in the water!

Hi Everyone!


When I toilet trained my first son, I took a week off of work in order to potty train him.  I switched him into underwear and swore never to put him back into diapers.  I also did not believe in training pants because they are no different than diapers anyway, and I didn't want to confuse him.  But what about the car seat?  Not wanting to risk having to clean the seat from accidents, I put a small change mat on the seat with a prefold on top.  My two piece system was quite annoying because the mat and the diaper would not stay together; one was always shifting out of place.

When it came time for the car seat to be protected from my second son, I created the Child Seat Protector.  It is like a pocket diaper for your car seat that can be stuffed with a prefold!  We have used it for over a year in both our cars, and it works.  You can get an insert for it too that snaps into place.  This is great if you didn't use prefolds, or simply want an insert that fits well and will stay in place.

Hi Everyone!

Finally the holiday gift bags are ready!  They are so cute as a little gift, or as a stocking filler!  They come with extra tags so that they can be re-used.

Hi Everyone!

Pumpkins and Peanuts is now supporting schools and day care centres!  A portion of your sale can go the participating school or day care centre of your choice. How do you do it?  After you have finished shopping, click on the shopping cart tab, which will bring you to a page called "My Cart".  There you will see a box where you can "tell us about any special instructions".  In that box tell us the name of your school or day care centre and the street it is on, your child's name and teacher.  Then proceed through the checkout.  You will still have to enter the shipping and billing address, but your purchase will not be shipped to you directly.  Instead, it will be delivered to your child's school or day care centre and distributed from there, similar to those book orders.  If you forget to fill the information in the box, or neglect some information, simply send us an e-mail.

What if your child's school or centre is not participating?  You can tell them about the opportunity, and ask if they would like to participate. Alternately, you can support a friend's school, or centre.  Your friend will have to give you your purchase after it is delivered to their child.

Thank you for supporting local schools, day care centres and the children!

Please don't feel that you have to know of a participating school or day care centre to shop!  You may just shop as usual!
