Memory Lane with Discount School Supply
Hi, I’m Tiffany Harbrecht, a copy writer here at Discount School Supply. "Get in the hoop! Set of striped hoops is great for gross motor development, balance and coordination," is a sample of the copy that I wrote for one of our newest products, Zebra Hoops, Set of 6 which are on the Discount School Supply website. These hoops are a ton of fun! I had a few hula hoops when I was growing up that I just loved! Feelings of nostalgia are a fantastic perk of my job as a copywriter/marketing coordinator. I am able to write about products for our customers and fondly remember things that I had (or perhaps always wanted) as a kid myself.
Every year, I am very excited by the innovative array products that our Merchandising team introduces to the products we have at Discount School Supply. I really enjoy learning about the educational value of the products we provide to our customers. It's interesting to see how our products can help build so many fundamental skills and fulfill learning outcomes. I remember doing fun activities in kindergarten, such as practicing lacing and dressing skills, and now I get to write about fun products that enhance these skills, such as dressing dolls and lacing boards. The same goes for pegboards, sorting and patterning activities, dress-up and dramatic play – they all have such important developmental benefits that I get to support from a whole new perspective as an adult.
It's a very satisfying feeling to be able to write for our customers and to promote educational products for early childhood at Discount School Supply, and I love the nostalgia that comes with it. I invite you to check out the wide assortment of new products that we have for 2010 at Discount School Supply and see the values we have for teachers, parents and caregivers. You too might find yourself strolling down memory lane.
