1. Candy Land® Game

I remember how I used to play Candy Land for hours as a child, and I look forward to playing this game with my children as well. I love that the game has pictures on the card so reading is not required. I think at this age it is important to learn about how to be a good winner and good loser, and shake hands at the end of each game. So this will be a fun way to introduce that concept.

My New Sound System Helps Me Sleep

FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail

Every year at S&S Worldwide, we have one week during October that is called Customer Service Week! This week is all about giving back to our customers, as well as our internal customers (employees of S&S). During this week there are games that are played in between business and you get an opportunity to receive tickets and win a large range of items!

I happened to be the lucky winner of our Sound Spa Relaxation System! This was an item that I have always wanted because I constantly have issues with falling asleep. I noticed that if I had some background noise, it was much easier to fall asleep. This machine offers six different sounds to listen to (White Noise, Ocean, Summer Night, Thunder, Rain, and Brook), with the White Noise being my favorite! There’s an easily adjustable volume setting so you can choose how loud or quiet you wish it to be. Not only tare you able to adjust volume easily, but it also has an optional timer with an automatic shut-off, so it doesn’t have to play all night wasting energy. You can either plug it into your outlet, or it has an option to use AA batteries if you would like to take it with you somewhere!

This prize has really been a gift for me. If falling asleep is an issue for you or if you need a sound machine for any other reason, I highly suggest this item for it’s functionality and simplicity! I highly suggest checking this sound system out and you can decide for yourself what you think!

Ideas Worth Sharing – Staff Appreciation

FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail

We survey many of our customers and sometimes we ask them what they use the products they are buying for. We continue to be wowed by your creative, resourceful and genius ideas, so we want to share them for others to enjoy!

A CEO from a non-profit organization shares with us their thoughtful and creative idea using our  Variety Erasers to appreciate their staff in a purposeful way. They highlighted the unique ways each person contributes to the team.

“My hardworking, non-profit staff deserved to know I appreciated their special talents and efforts, so I wrapped up a baseball pencil, notebook, and an eraser that signified my appreciation. Our salesperson, with a great deal of drive, got a car eraser. The staffer who always seems to save-the-day got a helicopter. Our accountant got a hammer since she just keeps hammering away at us to do things correctly. The erasers are really fun, colorful and even have moving parts!! These were a much appreciated treat.”
