So, who are the inventors of AppeTEETHERSTM teething toys? Husband and wife; soul mates; best friends; parents of four; and now business partners, Lori and Michael Bredemeier are the founders of Little Toader and makers of AppeTEETHERSTM – popular and funny teething toys for babies

Although they both wanted to start a business, Lori and Michael were unsure of what kind of business. Then they had children.  As parents, Lori and Michael were constantly hit with “they should make…” type ideas.  It became clear that they needed to start with products for infants and toddlers…and Little Toader was born. The name Little Toader comes from a nickname given to Lori as a little girl. She was still known as “Toader” by her Grandpa until he passed in 2010. It was natural that Lori and Michael’s first born would inherit the nickname, “Little Toader”. Being that all products are inspired by their kiddos, it only made sense to call their business Little Toader.

Today you've got the chance to win one of EACH of the AppeTEETHERS created by Lori and Michael. These fun shaped teething toys are earthy, edgy, and fun!

Day 12! Bums Away and Eco Vessel

Bums Away was born in the small city of Brockville, Ontario in the summer 2009 (and we began selling AppleCheeks cloth diapers that same summer!). Four years later, in the summer of 2013, we moved our family and the business to Kamloops, British Columbia. Bums Away began as a cloth diaper store and has since grown to now offer products to serve your entire family. As well as cloth diapers and accessories, we have reusable lunch containers, hats and T-shirts for toddlers and young children, natural skin care products for everyone, breastfeeding accessories, bottles, baby toys & blankets, teething toys, and we’re constantly expanding the line of products we offer.

You can expect that most of our new products, as well as being high quality and eco-friendly, will be made in Canada. At Bums Away, we believe it is important to support businesses (like AppleCheeks!) that manufacture in Canada in order to create sustainable jobs. While products manufactured in Canada may cost a little more to purchase, they have a lower social and environmental cost that those manufactured cheaply abroad. It costs money to pay workers well, to comply with environmental standards, and to use quality materials. And we believe that the extra financial cost is well worth it. Today, Bums Away is giving one of you the chance to win our favorite of those Canadian manufactured products... an AppleCheeks little bundle!
