We are so excited about our upcoming Fall catalog!
We recently had our photo shoot, which I was happy to be a part of. My job for the day: “Build and put things together.” I assumed this would be a piece of cake. My first problem was…I assumed. As I went through the day, I learned a few tips:
Toys – I have learned that you should read through the instructions first before starting your project. You should also take the time to separate and organize your parts – this will save you time in the long run. Also, don’t assume the product is defective when a screw doesn’t fit properly…chances are, you have the piece backwards. Lastly, don’t get overwhelmed by all the pieces/parts when you open the box. From experience, it can be overwhelming.
Nursery Furniture – After putting together the toys, I again assumed I was a pro by now. This was not the case. Big pieces of furniture require more man power. I suggest you enlist another person to assist in the building. And again, do not get overwhelmed with the amount of parts and pieces. Lastly, it’s okay to talk to yourself during this process…because sometimes, you just need to talk it through.
After all was said and done, the hard work was worth it. The shots came out great, the kids LOVED the toys. It’s amazing when kids as little as 3 years old know exactly how to play with something and how it should work.
Here’s to another successful catalog!
P.S. – I almost forgot, make sure your electric drill is charged and don’t be afraid to use it!
