SweetPea Toy Company Relocates to Comox Valley

The SweetPea Toy Company has moved its office from Calgary to Courtenay.

The company designs and manufactures the award-winning SweetPea3 MP3 Player for Kids, the top selling MP3 player for children up to six. It won the 2009 Canadian Toy Testing Council Toy of the Year award and continues to grow in popularity.

"We moved to the Comox Valley primarily for lifestyle reasons," says company president Dan Lemay. "My wife and I have young children and we were looking for a smaller community with good access to nature and outdoor recreation, a Waldorf school and a more balanced pace of life than in a big city. We certainly have found that here in the Comox Valley and are quite pleased to be establishing roots in this community."

The SweetPea3 is manufactured in China and ships worldwide through the website www.sweetpeatoyco.com and through Amazon.com.

It is available in Courtenay at Whale's Tale Toys.

The company is an innovator in electronic toys for children, dedicated to providing parents with tools needed to immerse children in music and educational programming. Their first product, the SweetPea3TM MP3 player, is a unique blend of ruggedness, style, functionality and safety.
