Happy New Year for 2014

Happy New Year!

Bosco Bear and the team are really excited for what’s coming up in 2014!

There are plans afoot to release a new website in 2014 to help make it easier for everyone to visit Bosco Bear and enjoy some wonderful new products coming on line for 2014.  We will keep you posted on the release date.

The ‘Back to School’ specials are about to start as well – so keep an eye out in your email inboxes or visit our Facebook page to keep updated with the special code for discounts to help Mum and Dad stretch that ever important budget.  Some great offers for Library Bags, Blackboards and World Maps are coming up.  Make sure you like us on Facebook or sign up for the Newsletter to keep updated with the latest offer.

Bosco was also really happy to see that the newly released Towelling Robes and Float Suit were so popular. The towelling robes will keep the little ones warm and cosy in these beautiful Australian designed garments.   

Bosco thinks its wonderful that so many of Bosco Bears little friends will be much safer in the water this year. The SPF 50+ rating on the float suits and rashies will also help protect young skin from the harsh rays of the Australian sun. 

We had some wonderful feedback from one of Bosco Bears young friends “Jack”  on how much he loved his new ‘spiderman’ Float suit. He said it made him feel like he had special powers in the water and he could have a really fun time when he went swimming when he was on holidays with his family in Newcastle over Christmas. He could keep up with his older sister and swum his first ‘full length of the pool’ right in front of his very proud Dad. – Well done young Jack – Bosco is very proud of you.

Keep smiling and Bosco will be in touch again soon.

eCensus. Great for parents on the go.
eCensus is a fast, easy and secure online option for busy parents. Just about everything has an online option nowadays, so why not the census? What a great paper saving option! Carbon tax and all that. Save time not having to hang around waiting for all your family's important information to be collected. At a push of the submit button your precious information will be delivered. Have peace of mind that it is not flapping around somewhere in someone's car boot.

Tell the planners and the decision makers about you and yours.
Put your hand up and be counted on Census night. Let the planners know that your kids are part of the neighbourhood and that your family members and family information is important. Data collected in the 2011 Census will be vital to the provision of educational services, health care, roads, transport and so on. All the things that make your world go around and make Australia a great place in which to raise kids. 

Completing an eCensus is easy.
To complete an eCensus you will need:
• A Census Form Number
• A unique eCensus Number. 

This information will be delivered to your household by a Census Collector in a sealed eCensus envelope.  If you haven’t received an eCensus envelope by 7 August 2011, call the Census Inquiry Service on 1300 338 776They can provide your Census Form Number and unique eCensus number, via SMS or mail. Very 2011!

Good reasons for choosing the eCensus Option.
• It is safe and secure. All sorts of encryption technology is in place.
• It is available 24 hours a day. Complete in your time. Submit when ready.
• It saves precious time. You can save and come back if interrupted by juniors.
• Built-in checks and online help makes sure your form is completed correctly. It skips the not relevant bits to your family situation.
• It can be used by more than one member of a household while protecting the privacy of each user. Great if you have saying-over extended family or friends on 9th August. 

Online information.
I found the Census 2011 website easy to navigate with lots of helpful information. I will be choosing the eCensus option. Having worked as a Census collector in both Brisbane and Adelaide when I was a SAHM it would have been great not to have to go back to pick up the forms, especially at night in an unfamiliar neighbourhood.. Love that SUBMIT button.

A pressing problem on a day out.
Have you ever been out and about with juniors and suddenly they "just have to go"! Nature just wants to take its course. You have trained them and you have trained them well. In desperation you scan the unfamiliar landscape and think, "where is it?" Shop assistants and little old ladies are very helpful but their directions just don't seem to translate. Time is ticking away.

BoscoBear has something to share. 
BoscoBear has made a great discovery. The National Public Toilet Map! Set up as a government initiative for grannies and grandpas, it is just right for busy mums. Use modern technology to bookmark on your mobile phone or load as an app on the iPhone. Never be caught short again. The National Public Toilet Map has Australia covered. Taxpayer dollars working for 'mums in the know'.
Plan your trips with comfort stops in mind. 
Planning with kids couldn't be easier. Pack the car, pack the kids, plan the route and plan the toilet stops. Relax and enjoy the journey. Be it a long driving holiday or a short excursion, pack your mobile and away you go.

Share BoscoBear's discovery with a friend.
Feel free to share BoscoBear's secret with your friends. They will love you for it. If not for their kids but also for their own 'caught short moments'.

Be a 'mum in the know' .
Who is going to load it as an app?  Let us know when it hits the spot and works for you.

It is that time of the year again. 
Have you been hanging out for the Winter Solstice. You will be able to spring out of bed on Weds 22 June knowing that the sun is on its way back.

BoscoBear would like to share.
Its no secret it is Winter. However BoscoBear has made a great discovery. The Museum Victoria website. It is a great source of information for kids. If you want to share an easy to follow explanation of the Winter Solstice with your kids, here it is. Thanks Museum Victoria.

Winter Solstice (AEST) 2011 June 22, 3:16am

Museum Victoria. On the day of Winter Solstice, Earth’s south pole is tilted away from the Sun. The Sun rises north of east, sets north of west and reaches 28 1/2° above the horizon at noon. This is, usually, the shortest day of the year.

Diagram: The Sun in Winter
Artist: Frey Micklethwait. Source: Museum Victoria.

Why is it sooo cold in winter?
According to Museum Victoria, temperatures are determined by the angel at which the Sun's rays strike the Earth, not its distance from the Sun. In Winter the Sun is low in the sky so the rays strike the Earth at a shallow angel. In Summer, the Sun is high in the Sky and the rays hit the Earth at a steep angle.

When is next year's Winter Solstice?
This year the Winter Solstice will be during snuggle up time. 3.16am. Last year was a night time event. 2010 June 21, 9:28pm. Next year will be an awake time event. 2012 June 21, 9:09am.
