THE ISSUE

Tortes and Torts by Kevin Fahy

Prior to starting my own business, I worked for four different companies, at which I reported to a total of six different executives. Each was a mentor to me in one way or another. One of them, who was by far the most difficult to work for, was perhaps the most assiduous student of business in general. He instilled in me some principles that have served me well over the years, but he also did some strange things. Once, for example, he told me that he didn’t wish to do any further business with one of our major customers, for no apparent reason. I asked him on what grounds were we to refuse their next order, and he answered that he didn’t need any grounds. “You can refuse to do business with someone simply because you don’t like them,” he said, “or for no reason at all.” Was he right about that? Well, yes and no. On June 4th, the United States Supreme Court finally decided the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. As you probably recall, the case involved a bakery owner named Jack Phillips who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, Charlie Craig and David Mullins. Phillips told the couple that they were welcome to buy other products off the shelf, but his Christian faith did not allow him to create a cake specifically for a gay wedding. Craig and Mullins filed a complaint with the state of Colorado, in spite of the fact that same-sex marriage was not lawful in the state in 2012. The state civil rights commission ruled that Phillips had violated Colorado’s anti-discrimination statute, and that he must pay a fine. He then took the commission to court, resulting in a

six-year legal battle that finally landed on the Supreme Court docket. In a 7 to 2 decision, the high court ruled that Colorado’s statute was trumped by Mr. Phillips’ constitutional right to exercise his religion as he saw fit. The call was probably made easier by a review of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission’s deliberations, in which there were numerous expressions of hostility toward Christian teachings on marriage, and denigration of the baker’s beliefs and motivation. The court made clear in the written opinion that the government has no business making judgments about anyone’s religion, and there is no stricture that prevents a business owner from bringing his personal beliefs with him to the office. There were other places where the court was very careful not to go. It did not settle a second objection that Jack Phillips had raised in the case, that the civil rights commission was trying to violate his right of free artistic expression. It also failed to address the broad issue of whom a business could refuse to serve and on what grounds. Most of what we know about that question goes back to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination in schools, housing, employment and places of public accommodation based on certain criteria. Those are race, religion, color, creed, nation of origin, citizenship, sex, age, disability, or veteran status. Since then, a number of states have passed statutes of their own to supplement the national law. Conditions they try to protect from discrimination include marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, illness, and political affiliation.

THE ISSUE (continued from page 3) My old boss was correct in a narrow sense. You may decline to do business with someone for no reason, but if you have a reason it cannot be one of those that is prohibited by either the federal government or your own state. Theoretically, you could refuse service to someone simply because you don’t like him. Keep in mind, however, that if everyone you “don’t like” has something in common, and it happens to be one of the traits listed in the statutes, it can be construed that you have an ulterior motive for your actions. That would also apply if your “no reasons” seem to follow a pattern, and you could be subject to fines and other penalties. One way to avoid the appearance of a bad reason is to have a good reason, and every retailer should have a clear sense of what that might be. In general, the most compelling reason is that a person or group of people presents a threat to the health, safety, or sense of well being of the other patrons. Specific examples could cover a lot of ground, but I’ll just name a few. You might consider that a customer was a potential health threat if he had poor hygiene, was smelly or dirty or bloody or whatever. You might think that a large group was a safety threat because of over-crowding. You might decide that someone who was loud or argumentative might make your customers uncomfortable. The fact that you perceive a threat, by the way, is sufficient reason to ask someone to leave. A California court affirmed that principle in 2001, when it sided with a sports bar which ejected a motorcycle club simply because such clubs sometimes start fights. If you’ve ever spent a vacation at the beach, you have surely seen the famous “no shirt, no shoes, no service” sign, which can no doubt be defended on the basis of health concerns, among others. I have always wondered more about restaurants that have dress codes such as men having to wear neckties, or nightclubs that select 6 EducationalDealerMagazine.com — August/September 2018

patrons according to looks or gender. I play golf on public courses, and most of the public courses around here are very casual operations with working-class clienteles, pickup trucks in the parking lots and empty beer cans on the tee boxes. I’m very comfortable in such places. There is one public course in my area that is much more toney. It was designed by a famous golf architect, has a beautiful clubhouse with a spectacular view, and charges more than twice as much as most clubs. I play there maybe once a year. They have a lot of rules, for things like how many inches your shorts may be above your knee. A few years ago a friend of mine was told that his designer golf shirt was unacceptable because it didn’t have a collar. The pro shop was happy to sell him a shirt, with the club name on it, for $75. With conventional retailers under intense pressure from the internet, and golf participation in decline as well, there is a certain irony involved in this whole matter of exclusivity. Amazon doesn’t care how long your shorts are, or whether or not you are wearing them. I have long held that the ultimate savior of brick and mortar was going to be human nature. Up to this point, the history of commerce has been driven by efficiency, continuously providing goods and services better, faster and cheaper. If that process were to continue unabated, eventually stores would disappear in a world where we just think of a product and it appears. (Then products would start appearing before we think of them.) I think people will shop in stores for the simple reason that they want to be around other people. The challenge for you is not to figure out whom you don’t want in your store but whom you do, and communicate to them that there is a place for them to get together.

by Tina Manzer

“We’re in the ‘business of children,’” explains Jane Burbank, owner of multifaceted Teacher’s Corner-Kid’s Mart (TCKM), a 29-year-old store in Gillette, Wyoming. “We’re proud to be the state’s largest independently owned and operated toy store, and the only teacher supply store in the region.” It’s July, and Jane is getting ready for her annual sidewalk sale. No, it’s not a back-to-school event for teachers, she clarifies. Over the last 18 years, Jane’s store has shifted from a 50/50 ratio toys-to-teacher items, to more like 90/10, respectively. “The school market has changed so much,” she says. “A lot of districts today don’t encourage their teachers to find their own resources; they want them to stay within the curriculum. When teachers do need resources, they turn to Pinterest or teacherspayteachers.com.” The back-to-school selling season may not be the store’s biggest anymore, but it remains “good,” notes Jane, a former teacher. “In the toy world, the summer months can be bleak. Teacher purchases in July and August give us that little ‘oomph’ we need to get over the hill before we get to the big mountain.” The sidewalk sale adds a little zing to the cash flow, too. It’s also a means to an end: cleaning out malingering merchandise gives Jane room to stock up for the holidays.

Storeowner Jane Burbank, a former teacher, is good at spotting items from the toy world that are good for the classroom. Examples include Rody horses that help kids develop balance, movement skills and coordination; and all kinds of games.

Believing in downtown The store is the result of a 1989 merger between Teacher’s Corner, a small teacher supply store; and Wilderness Toys, a home-based toy store. Jane worked for the business’s two partners after she left teaching to raise her family. In 1994, she and her husband Dale, also a teacher, bought out one of the partners. They bought out the other six years later. Under Jane’s management, the business grew. In 2005 a move from one end of a downtown block to a bigger building at the other end doubled the store’s space. Then in 2014, a year after Dale retired and joined the store full time, it moved to its current location in the middle of the block. It has 6,000 square feet of selling space. Jane is an ardent supporter of her downtown. “There are other stores here that sell toys, and the bookstore has a unique mix of children’s books, art supplies, tea and candles. I think that if we all have a nice mix of stuff, we can keep shoppers downtown.”

You’d think that with the closest mall 140 miles away, that wouldn’t be a problem. But, as Jane relates, the same people who complain that they can’t find on-street parking right directly in front of her store think nothing of driving two hours-plus to shop in Rapid City, South Dakota! Gillette, nicknamed “the energy capital of the nation,” is a coalmining town. “We have a lot of natural resources that keep our area hopping, including oil, gas and uranium,” Jane explains. Its distinction as Wyoming’s third-largest town belies the actual number of citizens –just 32,000. “It’s not very populated, so I am often amazed that we’ve done so well here,” she comments. “But we also draw from some of the small towns around us. Going east, the closest one is 28 miles. Heading west, it’s 67 miles. We’re a sports-minded area and many kids are involved. Families travel all over for tournaments, and I consider myself lucky that they stop here. “Our store hosts special events and activities that bring people in,” she adds. “I know I could do more if I had the staff. That’s my biggest challenge right now.” Her team consists of 10 part-timers: retired teachers, moms, a high-school student and a college kid home for the summer. Others are teachers who help on Saturdays during the school year; more in the summer. “They’re all great, but no one likes working weekends,” says Jane. The store is not open on Sunday – except during the holidays. “Then I could use everyone seven days a week!” She works hard to rally neighboring businesses to follow her lead in hosting

events. “This year, for the first time in a long time, my neighbors are joining me in the sidewalk sale,” she says. “I’m excited because I’ve been a standalone for a couple of years. We expect a lot of people – our downtown is holding a brew fest on Saturday. People are discovering we have a lot going on down here again.” Everything is educational TCKM’s teacher section is heavily stocked with decorations. “Most teachers are very creative people; that’s why they got into the field in the first place,” Jane explains. “They have a strong desire to make their room unique; you know, ‘their own.’ They’re in it all the time so they get tired of, and then they change it, just like they change their homes.” Décor may be the top seller for teachers, but every product at TCKM is educational. “We say all toys teach. It depends on what you want children to learn.” Thanks to their teaching experience, she and Dale are able to spot items from the toy world that are also good for the classroom, including games, books, science kits, and arts & crafts. “We sell a lot of arts & crafts items,” she says. “Magnetic block sets are big right now too, and different kinds of marble runs. We have a big construction section and carry science kits that help kids build things like robots or bridges. For babies we have the basics: something to love and something to chew on.” It takes a lot of product to fill 6,000 square feet, and TCKM doesn’t disappoint. As Jane tells me, Dale sometimes gets overwhelmed. “I just explain that I want our customers to have choices. Life is about choices. “Parents choose items to help their children learn the alphabet, or help develop gross motor and fine-motor skills, decision-making skills, and verbal skills. To meet their needs, we carry a variety of open-ended and creative toys. ‘An invitation to play and learn’ is our tagline. “We are very strongly oriented toward games,” Jane adds. “We even have a game bar where staff can teach customers a game before they take it home.”

Among the store’s favorites are classics like Five Crowns and Quiddler, and newer games including Dead Man’s Draw from Mayday Games, and Chickapig distributed by Buffalo Games. Chicapig, invented by guitar maker David Calhoun with help from his musician friend Dave Mathews, is played on a chess-like board with animal pieces. “We also do game nights in schools as fundraisers for the parent councils,” Jane adds. It’s a project they undertook after hearing the answers to a question Dale posed to his third-grade students: “What games do you like to play?” “Out of 25 kids, not one mentioned a board game or an outside activity! Every one was a video game. It’s scary, especially since we see the need for kids to develop better verbal communication skills.” When I asked Jane, “How’s business?” she laughed. “How do I explain about our two great months thanks to fidget spinners?” It was her first exposure to a fad – she wasn’t in on the Beanie Baby craze, and adult coloring books sales are still selling at TCKM. But how about those spinners? “When school was done, that fad died faster than an ant!” Trends start on the East Coast, Jane believes, and then move to the West Coast before they work their way back toward Wyoming. She tries to pay attention, and gets the lowdown at ASTRA Marketplace every year. It’s the only tradeshow she attends. Jane loves traditional retail. “We’d like to continue growing and being an active part of our Gillette ‘Main Street,’” she says. “I really like the interaction with the customers and helping them find quality toys, games and new products for their families.” The store’s website is for information only; Jane doesn’t think they’ll ever have a shopping cart. “We’re so busy with our customers, I don’t feel that we can do them justice if we have an ecommerce site, too. “The business of children is a good business because of the friendships we’ve formed and watching families grow. It’s been a wonderful life.” August/September 2018 — EducationalDealerMagazine.com 11

The School Furniture Market is HOT by Tina Manzer

T

The educational furniture market in North America is poised for growth, says a new report from London-based research firm Technavio. “School Furniture Market in North America 2018-2022” predicts a compound annual growth rate of 4.89 percent from 2018 to 2022. In 2017, the global school furniture market reached a value of US$4 billion, notes the report. The U.S. market, specifically, is a hard one to quantify. An article in the Los Angeles Business Journal last May about the size of California school-furniture manufacturer Virco, noted, “There is little market data for the school furniture industry.” Reporter Shwanika Narayan turned to EDmarket’s Jim McGarry to find out why. “It’s quite fragmented, but we are trying to reclassify terms to give us a better sense of the market in the United States,” he told her. “There’s a lot of crossover with business in this niche. Segments are classified as ‘early childhood,’ ‘pre-K through 12th grade,’ ‘college,’ and then on the flip side there’s ‘office furniture,’ ‘cafeteria furniture,’ and ‘classroom furniture.’” Still, growth is undeniable, especially if attendance at the annual EDspaces conference is the yardstick. The show was honored in Trade Show Executive magazine’s “Fastest 50” for three categories in 2017. Last year EDspaces reported a

record number of school and architect attendees. This year, the association expects that record to broken. In anticipation, it has increased the number of classrooms for educational sessions from five to six. Growth in the market is the result of several factors, says the Technavio report – • an increased focus on aesthetics; • a growing demand for ergonomic designs that prevent health and posture problems in children; • the need for comfortable learning environments that keep students focused; • new interactive and dynamic teaching styles, like blended learning and flipped classrooms, that require portable and adjustable furniture that can be reconfigured easily; and • the growth in the demand for eco-friendly furniture. (Another factor, mentioned by many sources, is the increasing role of tech in today’s classroom.) The potential of the school furniture market had not gone unnoticed by ECRM, and the Efficient Collaborative Retail Marketing company will hold its first Educational Furniture & Equipment EPPS in Itasca, Illinois, from October 1 through 3. “Our new EPPS for educational furniture and equipment results from the feedback we received from both buyers and

vendors who participated in our educational supplies EPPS back in February,” explains Melinda Young, ECRM’s senior vice president of general merchandise. “There were enough of them focused just on school furniture and equipment that we knew there was an opportunity to spin that segment out as another session. “We are excited to hold this first session and anxious to get feedback from our customers.” Meanwhile, EDmarket is gearing up for its annual furniture-and-equipment-presenting EDspaces tradeshow. It’s experiential, with leaders from school districts and colleges, architects, interior designers, dealers and exhibitors engaging and participating in the ongoing transformation of educational environments. Case in point: six design and architectural firms were recently chosen to create actual classrooms for EDspaces. Two of the learning environments will be located directly on the exhibit floor, and four will be located in the convention center meeting rooms. Nearly 60 education sessions will be held in the classrooms, allowing attendees to experience the ways different products work in a various educational settings. Here is a list of the winning firms. Architecture for Education (A4E), Pasadena, California A4E includes what it calls “Educational Manifestations”

in every one of its projects. “Physical manifestations of our clients’ curriculum, they are emblematic of a child’s curiosity – continually reaching out to engage students’ imagination and offering a multiplicity of teaching opportunities,” explains its website.

What’s trending

in school furniture and equipment? Bright colors, active seating, sensory learning, versatility and mobility, safety, smart hygiene, and big storage for tight spaces. Here’s a roundup of some of this summer’s bestsellers from our advertisers.

When the body moves, the mind is stimulated. Students who sit on ErgoErgo often improve significantly in concentration, participation, and behavior. They build core strength and body awareness.

(1) “Teachers love ErgoErgo, and report that active sitting on ErgoErgo helps kids stay focused while ‘working out the wiggles,’” says Barbara Bluestone, “chief Ergomaniac.” “On ErgoErgo, students often improve significantly in posture, concentration, participation, and behavior. Teachers also appreciate that it provides flexible seating for a classroom, library, music room, art studio, or fitness area.” 212-792-6500, ergoergo.com

(2) “The transparent acrylic tub in our See-Thru Sensory Table creates a new observation point for children,” notes Melissa Potter from Jonti-Craft. “It’s great for teaching lessons on floating versus sinking, for instance. Kids enjoy it because it’s sensory. They don’t realize how much they improve their fine-motor and cognitive skills just by playing with it! “Teachers like it because cleanup is quick and easy, thanks to the bottom drain valve, and with locking casters, they can move it around,” she explains. “It’s KYDZSafe, KYDZStrong, and KYDZTuff so they know that it’s safe and also rugged enough to last.”

The antimicrobial protection of the chairs limits the spread of bacteria so my students stay healthy. I can stop worrying so much about disinfecting every surface of my classroom.’” The broad-spectrum protection has been successfully tested to reduce up to 99.9 percent of common bacteria including E. coli, listeria and S. aureus, he says. 516-662-0108, info@korestool.com

Anyone who thinks travelling to a trade show is glamorous hasn’t done it

A

A new book by author, venture capitalist, and college president Richard Moran explains how much can go wrong on a business flight and offers some been there/done-that tips to prevent catastrophe. In The Thing About Work: Showing Up and Other Important Matters, he recounts a particularly awful red-eye trip from San Francisco to New York City that involved a last-minute re-ticket to a middle seat, a seatmate toting a cat (Moran is allergic), someone else’s medical crisis, an emergency landing in Chicago, a post-landing “sink shower” and public suit change in the JFK lavatory, and a stressful taxi ride to a meeting that was ultimately canceled at the last minute. “I’ve taken many trips like that, and after a while one becomes inured to the

indignities,” comments Moran, in his book. Along the way he’s learned some valuable lessons, and a few tricks from seasoned road warriors. Here are just a few. DON’T check a bag “It’s not about the fees or the schlep factor,” he explains. It’s more about changing flights, which you may have to do to avoid missing a connection if your current flight is delayed. When this happens, the first question any gate agent will ask you, is, “Did you check a bag?” DON’T follow a family “When it comes to airport lines, find a fellow road warrior to get behind,” says Moran. “Following the family with the stroller at security is just plain inefficient, and it’s going to slow you down.”

DON’T expect an upgrade “Getting a surprise upgrade may be everyone’s fantasy, but the chances of this happening, even for frequent business travelers, are few, thanks to computerized automated seating and stricter airline regulations,” Moran concedes. “As you file through those marginally larger, overpriced seats on your way to coach, remember this – you’re all ending up in the same place.” DO go into Zen mode Any kind of travel is a breeding ground for anxiety, impatience, and frustration. While total inner calm is probably impossible, do your best to not let the sounds, smells, and other annoyances get to you. “Your state of mind won’t magically transform when

Unique educational building kits for your child´s intellectual development the wheels hit the runway, and ‘disgruntled’ isn’t a productive or professional look,” says Moran.

· New pieces with text and symbols · New tasks and pictures

DON’T travel with your boss on a flight longer than an hour They say the experience of traveling together is so illuminating that it can help you decide if your significant other is truly the one. But your boss is not your boyfriend, girlfriend, or anyone you’d want to experience the trapped-in-the-air side of your personality. And he or she is certainly not the best shoulder to sleep (and probably drool) on. Contact your sales representative: 970-484-7445 / 800-289-9299 www.amep.com

DON’T use the seat-back pocket The Bermuda Triangle of air travel is real and it’s sitting right in front of you. “Anything you place in the handy pocket will likely be forgotten, lost, and never retrieved,” says Moran. “Avoid a lot of grief by showing up with your own system in place to hold your glasses, passport, and other important items.” Introducing

DO bring reading material “No matter how much work you have to do, breaks are essential,” advises Moran. “Bring a book, either a paper or electronic one. Interesting people do well, and interesting people read.”

Dot Soft Seating

by

DO bring headphones “Nothing says, ‘I don’t want to talk to you,’ like a good pair of headphones,” says Moran. “Plus, airline headphones aren’t very good.” DO be alert for bad news Certain words and phrases coming from the cockpit, a text, or another weary traveler can signal doom. They range from “unfortunately...” to “shuttle bus,” “system problems,” “storm,” or, “The president is in town.” What’s more, the “good news/bad news” expression never really carries good news. But the worst? “We’re going to need to check that bag,” says Moran. Richard Moran blends corporate and academic experience and leadership with everyday insight, relaxed humor, and a touch of pathos. His advice is highly applicable to all employees contemplating how to navigate their careers and their travels, and helps make the contemplation and journey more enjoyable.

Musgrave Pencil

701 W Lane St Shelbyville, TN 37162 Ph: 800-736-2450 pencils.net Our 100th Anniversary was celebrated on June 10, 2016. Musgrave Pencil Company was founded in rural Middle Tennessee in 1916 by J.R. Musgrave. The company produced pencil slats using Tennessee Red Cedar, and shipped them to pencil manufacturers in Europe. In 1922, when Mr. Musgrave realized it would be beneficial to produce his own pencils, he purchased production machines from pencil factories in Europe, and in late 1923 began producing pencils in addition to pencil slats. Since that time Musgrave Pencil Company has become a leader in many types of school, office specialty imprints and designer pencils. We very much appreciate your interest in our company.

INDUSTRY NEWS Frog Street Press hosted its three-day SPLASH “Don’t Stop Believing” Conference July 25 through 27 to honor early childhood educators who never stop believing in children. Now in its 26th year, SPLASH provides three days of professional learning, best-practice sharing, networking, more than 60 exhibitors, entertainment, and an Awards Dinner honoring early childhood educators. “We are excited to host more than 2,000 educators from all over the country,” said Dipak Golechha, CEO of Excelligence Learning Corporation, Frog Street’s parent company. “Our goal is to provide exceptional content, a platform for idea sharing, and the chance to acknowledge educators for the incredible work they do in helping children succeed,” said Sharon Burnett, Frog Street cofounder and Splash

Conference director. “Splash is a special educational gathering with a personal approach to give educators the boost they need to head into the classroom in the fall.” The lineup of speakers for this year’s event includes Stedman Graham, bestselling author and motivational speaker; and Steve Spangler, host of television show “DIY SCI,” and a regular guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” In addition to the keynotes, more than 60 presenters brought their own brand of passion and inspiration to the conference’s 130-plus educational sessions. Founded in 1989 by five kindergarten teachers, Frog Street Press is a leading provider of comprehensive early childhood education solutions for children ages 0 to 5.

Bobby Susser, a Smithsonian Folkways Artist, has released a new children’s album called “Green Light.” The veteran songwriter liberally spreads doses of positivity and happiness throughout the 12 freshly-minted songs by emphasizing the importance of kindness, courtesy, laughter and fun. Susser holds a master’s degree in early childhood, and boasts more than 50 years of musical production experience. For more information, visit bobbysusser.com.

In July, Target offered a 15-percent-off coupon for teachers purchasing folders and binders, arts-and-crafts materials, classroom storage, and basics such as disinfecting wipes and plastic baggies. “The fact that Target even thought to do this is indicative of the state of teaching in the U. S. today,” said an article in The Atlantic. “The practice of teachers at underfunded schools paying out of pocket for school supplies is so common and well known that a retail corporation has picked up on it as a socially beneficial revenue opportunity.” The National Center of Education Statistics reports that in 2014-2015, teachers spent an average of $479 of their own money on school supplies. Research released by Scholastic estimates that it is much higher. According to The Atlantic, Scholastic’s research also revealed that educators in high-poverty schools are far more likely than those at more affluent schools to use their personal money for supplies. One out of 10 teachers at high-poverty schools spends $1,000 or more each year.

ENDCAP (continued from page 62) Before Robert and Scott Jochim founded the company eight years ago, they were designing high-tech immersive experiences for Fortune 500 companies including Toyota, LEGO, and Philip Morris. Under parent company Digital Tech Frontier (DTF), they created interactive “adventures” that used 3-D stereoscopic imaging, virtual reality gaming, motion simulators, smell systems, and gesture recognition. In 2001, with a grant from the Arkansas Department of Education, DTF developed the Educational Reality System (ERS). It provided students in the Lamar, Arkansas, school district with modalities to explore landmarks like Machu Picchu in Peru and the Louvre in Paris without leaving the classroom. Its success led to the creation of the Virtual Reality Development Lab, used today at educational institutions throughout the U.S. to teach students how to design their own virtual reality tours. After years of success, Robert and Scott created the Augmented Reality Development Lab. It gives students the opportunity to hold an augmented human heart in their hands, launch a space shuttle, explore chemical elements, and more. “That’s when we decided to bring this amazing technology to the masses via retail consumer products,” Robert says. “Our goal from the beginning was to bridge the digital and the physical to create a suite of products that meets the needs of teachers, parents and children. So far, Popar has developed more than 40 children’s consumer smart products and 50-plus moblie apps worldwide. They cover topics like the solar system, the periodic table, human anatomy, dinosaurs, sea life, geography, animals and more. See the Popar ad on page 5.

In the early 1950s, Peerless Plastics in Farmington, Minnesota, manufactured the industry’s first children’s rest mat, called the KinderMat. Since then, the company has expanded the Kinder brand to include different variations and sizes of mats, plus sheets and blankets. The line also boasts rest cots and accessories, a mat “bus” for storage, plus top-notch smocks and mess mats. Its KinderChute and Parachute Game Book & DVD encourage active play in the classroom and on the playground. KinderMats are made at the Peerless factory located 30 miles south of Minneapolis-St. Paul. All its products meet or exceed U.S. safety standards for the early childhood education industry. See the ad on page 40.

Award-winning ErgoErgo is an accordion-pleated stool that allows a body to make small, constant movements on a flexible but stable stand. It was invented by Alan Heller, a noted designer who has collaborated with Frank Gehry, Massimo Vigneli and Mario Bellini, among others, to create iconic examples of plastic seating and accessories. Heller came up with the idea for ErgoErgo after observing his wife sitting on an exercise ball to ease her back pain. More stable than a ball, ErgoErgo allows for greater fluidity of motion, doesn’t deflate or roll away, and doesn’t collect hair or dust off the floor. It’s compact, lightweight and portable, and can be used indoors or outdoors. See the ad on page 33.

It’s Alive! by Tina Manzer

“A student who interacts with the molecules of a substance is more likely to learn and remember how that molecule works, and its structure and elemental composition,” explains Robert Siddell, managing partner of Popar, a tech-toy company based in Phoenix. Popar develops and distributes augmented and virtual reality-infused smart products – toys, books, charts, mats, puzzles and more – that you can sell in your store to teachers, parents and children. They are affordable – suggested retail ranges from about $10 to $40, depending on the type of product. Each one features a free bonus app that works on Apple and Android smart phones and tablets. “The app brings education to life with interactive animations, informative read-alongs, videos, games and more,” Robert explains. “Augmented reality technology turns empty space into a rich interactive educational experience, and prepares students for the marketplace of the future.”

At ECRM’s Educational Supplies event in February, Popar’s Safari Alive Smart Toy Set was a favorite, and won a Buyers’ Choice award from Educational Dealer magazine. The set includes six hand-painted animals, a book, the 4-D app and three adventure cards. (Sets with dinosaurs and sea animals are also available.) Popar is one of the first companies in the world to launch augmented reality consumer products into the retail marketplace. “We have been developing these technologies for more than 10 years,” Robert commented in VoyagePhoenix Magazine in June. “Years ago, major market retail buyers asked us why the big guns like Hasbro, Mattel, and Spinmaster were not utilizing these technologies. My business partner and I found ourselves in a trailblazing position – we were actually creating a new consumer market segment.” (continued on page 59)
