Here at Appaman we believe in giving credit where credit is due. That said, we’d like to give a huge shout out to our lifestyle and catalog photographer, Joshua Paul.

He is incredibly professional to work with and a ton of fun. He has an amazing bio – he’s traveling the world over, photographing for major publications. We are honored to have him onboard our trip.

2nd Annual Gowanus Grand Prix 2013

February 13, 2013 in Appaman News, NYC

Another year, another great time had by Appaman and friends at the Second Annual Gowanus Grand Prix. This year, 20 slot car racing teams competed in the tournament, headed by none other than Appaman co-founder (and all around awesome guy),  Trackmaster Harald Husum. All proceeds from the event went to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer, and thanks to our sponsors, Halyard’s Bar (for the cool and friendly venue), Izze (for tasty beverages), Skinny Pop (for awesome healthy snacks), Whole Foods (for delicious sandwiches), and Tattly (for THE best temporary tattoos we’ve ever seen), the event was a huge success! Another thanks to our friends and fans for coming out to Brooklyn on a chilly Sunday morning and bringing the fun. We couldn’t have done it without your great attitudes, generosity, and (lest we forget) your mad racing skills.

We’re already excited for next year! Scroll down to see photos from the event (click to enlarge).

Introducing…Erica!

This summer the Appaman team was pleased to bring on board our very own ray of California sunshine, Erica Atkins! With her killer vintage style, magnetic personality, and affinity for Appaman HQ’s fave TV series Downton Abbey, Erica and her West Coast charm help make our office a great place to be. Erica brought in her past children’s industry expertise to work with our major wholesale accounts, and she is the logistical mastermind behind getting Appaman’s goods organized and shipped to department stores and other large retailers around the country…which, as industry folks know, is quite a task.

So, this post is long overdue, but nevertheless, we wish a very warm welcome to Erica, a wonderful addition to our staff.

Welcome aboard the Appaman train

Katie Luscombe, a lovely midwestern gal with a quirky sense of humor, incredible talents in nail art, baby naming, and impressive journalistic talents has officially joined Team Appaman. She runs our online division bringing fun social media, great customer service and online e-commerce charm.

We have been lucky enough to know Katie for a few years from her background in the children’s industry and when a position opened up, we pounced. This post is long overdue, but since Katie typically does them and she is that kind of humble gal, it didn’t get done. So please give a warm welcome to Katie when you get a minute.
