Top Chef of Toys

KidKraft hosted a fun team building exercise last week called Top Chef. Our company was divided into 8 teams, and we had 1 hour to decorate a cake & surrounding scene out of edible items and a "secret ingredient." We all got various toys as our secret ingredients and had a blast creating environments in which our toys would be "at home"... here are a couple of the groups' pictures. We love working at a toy company!

2008 International Business of the Year


Steven Lampert accepts the
2008 International Business of the Year Award
given by the Greater Dallas Chamber of Commerce



KidKraft was recently selected as the 2008 International Business of the Year for mid-size companies by the Greater Dallas Chamber of Commerce.

Since 1996, the International Business Achievement Awards have been presented annually by the Chamber's International Business Council to a large corporation, a small to mid-size company and an outstanding individual or community organization whose global successes and civic involvement have positively impacted the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) region. Recipients' successes exemplify the innovative spirit of North Texas and raise awareness of DFW as a prime international business destination.

2008 Winners

The Small to Mid-Size Award is the only International Business Achievement Award that is determined through a judging process. Companies with up to $150 million in revenue are eligible to apply. The small to mid-size committee, led by Yousuf Omar, Director of Commercial Banking for Citibank, reviewed the objective components of the application. The top finalists were then passed to the Judges' Panel for a half-day session where interview content and application content was discussed among the Judges to determine our finalists and award winners.

Congratulations KidKraft for your continued success and outstanding impact on the Dallas/Ft. Worth region and beyond!

TX Tough Charity Bike Ride





The KidKraft FireDragon Team recently competed in the annual TX Tough Bike Ride in conjunction with the "Autumn in Bonham" Rally benefiting Dallas' Children's Medical Center in Bonham, TX. KidKraft's team of 20 dedicated riders trained for months and generously donated over $7,000 to the Children's Medical Center.




TX Tough cyclists rode in various races, from 14 to 64 mile routes on country roads, and the team's training leader Ilan Katz placed first in the 64 mile race with an incredible time of 2 hours and 38 minutes! That's an impressive 24 mph pace. All of the riders finished well, the weather was enjoyable, and everyone had a great time.





Ilan
thanked KidKraft's leadership for their outstanding support by saying, "we were allowed to train on company time, able to participate in the event with a custom-made jersey at no cost to us, and finally, have KidKraft contribute over $7,000 in charity donations to the Children's Medical Center. Thanks so much to Steven and Charmaine for allowing us the opportunity and for covering all of the event's costs."



*A special thanks to Crystal E. for her awesome jersey design! Efforts are already underway for next year's KidKraft cycling team's participation in the 2009 TX Tough Bike Ride for charity.
