KinderCone season is at it’s peak at this time of year! Now that we are settled into our new apartment (for only about 20 more days!), KinderCone is receiving our full attention at last… And a lot of attention at that! Lately, our bad days have been replaced with good ones especially for our sales and publicity. As I juggle more and more orders, my mom received great publicity from the Chicago Tribune. http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/tribu/sc-fam-0809-first-day-comfort-20110810,0,40234.story. We also had a little event for the organization called School Cones for Japan. A young employee of DHL started this in hopes that he could get a couple of companies to donate their goods and brighten the first day of school for many children who have lost their schools and much more. Herlitz donated 1,000 cones for the first day of school and DHL is doing the shipping for free. We had little KinderCone event at the German School Chicago and colored our craft cones. The bigger kids also wrote letters wishing them a fun year. A camera man came and shot some footage and soon enough we were on tv!
See if you recognize anybody!

We also paid another visit to the charming shop Leoleno for a workshop. Kids made their own little KinderCones and stayed to hear the book “It’s Off to School We Go!”, which explains the different traditions all around the world. KinderCone is definitely making headway… shown by the pile of orders waiting for me tomorrow which have accumalated over the weekend!
