Thank Your Teachers for Going the Extra Mile

Teacher Appreciation Week is a time to celebrate and recognize the hard work and dedication of our educators. This year, the week runs from May 8th – 12th, and it’s the perfect opportunity to show our gratitude to the people who make such a huge impact on our children’s lives.

As parents, we know that our children’s teachers have a challenging job, and we appreciate all that they do. They work tirelessly to ensure that our children receive the best possible education, and they deserve to be recognized and celebrated for their efforts.

To help you celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, we’ve created a free coloring sheet download that you can print out and give to your child to color and personalize for their teacher. You can download the coloring sheet here:

In addition to the coloring sheet, we’d like to suggest a special way to acknowledge your child’s hard work this year. As summer approaches, consider shopping for toy trucks as a well-deserved summer reward for your child.

Our toy trucks are a great reward because they encourage imaginative play for indoor and outdoor exploration. They can also be used creatively to hone in science, math, and engineering skills. Plus, they’re just plain fun!

At Andrew Car, we have a wide selection of toy trucks that are perfect for children. From dump trucks and excavators to tractors and harvesters, we have something for every interest and age group. You can shop our selection online and we even offer free deliveries to local Northeast Ohio locations.

So this Teacher Appreciation Week, let’s take a moment to recognize and celebrate the hard work and dedication of our children AND their teachers. Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Andrew Car on the Farm

We recently went to a local Alpaca Farm. If you are ever in Northeast Ohio, please check out Majestic Meadows Alpacas & Boutique. They put on an amazing children’s Trick or Treat event for Halloween, with kid friendly haunted houses and festive setups. All the staff and animals were very friendly and we actually learned a lot about each animal.

We saw Alpacas, Llamas, Piglets, Goats, Kangaroos, Wallabies & a Camel named Gus. Though, ‘Andrew Car’ also had his eyes on the farm equipment.

He found and pointed out every Truck, Tractor and Machine- go figure!

Perfect Playrooms include…

Hi there! I wanted to share the inspiration behind Andrew Car (and a special discount mentioned at the end of this post). This begins with a single product and an endearing nickname. My son loves any kind of car, tractor, truck, machine and etc… So much so that he feels the need to be the car. My -then- 2 year old son would loudly vroom around his playgroup or any room he was in and his nickname became Andrew Car.

At home we were putting together a designated playroom. It included an area rug with masking tape roads, which only lasted until he figured out how to pull the tape up. Meanwhile, I had a vision of the perfect playroom for Andrew Car. Playroom Goals. A playroom that he could fully use his imagination – A playroom he could actually drive his cars – A playroom that he could BE the car! I wanted a full-size, quality rug with roads on it. Let me tell you that my search was endless. The internet wasn’t providing anything big enough so I started calling carpet stores. Every carpet store was stumped or dumbfounded by what I wanted. I wanted the BEST road rug ever made. Finally, it was an old-timer that was able to direct me to a specialized wholesaler with exactly what I wanted, but only sold to distributors.

Once I found this ‘Tiny Towns’ play rug, I knew I had to do something to share with others! This was playroom goals; and gave me inspiration to actually launch a business in order to purchase and sell this item! Andrew Car naturally became the name of this business because I could see how much more my son enjoyed playing in his playroom ever since we made the change. This ‘Tiny Towns’ rug was not something I could find in any box store around me and it has been the perfect addition to our playroom ever since.

While not everyone has a large space for a designated playroom, I do have smaller options in the shop. However I am currently offering a $150 discount on the larger rug (link below). I picture these rugs in all preschools, playgroups, classrooms, waiting rooms and anywhere kids play! Please share your thoughts and visions for your perfect playroom vision.
