Hello Playspotters!


It's been a busy time at Playspotter and we thought you would like to hear about what has been going on!
 

1000 Likes

We were excited to pass the 1000 likes mark on Facebook and are now over 1250. It's great to be able to connect with parents quickly over Facebook, and we find lots of visitors to our site originate on Facebook.  If you are able to share our page with your friends we would be really grateful as we hope to reach the 2000 mark much quicker than we did 1000!  We now cover a lot of the North of England, as well as Scotland and Northern Ireland, so it's good to see our reach expanding!
 

New Friends!

One of the things that we have most enjoyed over the past couple of months is making lots of new friends!  It's been really useful and fun to meet with lots of people who work with parents, to get ideas about how playspotter can meet your needs more, and to spread the word about our site.  If you attend any of the following classes in Aberdeen City & Shire you may find yourself getting some playspotter goodies very soon! 
Bonding With Baby - The Creation Station - Musical Steps - Sign-a-Song - Mac the Monkey - Mud Pies - Rhythm Time - Arting Around - Gardening 4 Kids - Talking Tots 
We would recommend all of these folks - why not pay them a visit using these links if you are looking for something new to do with your wee ones!
 

Scottish Kids Show

We are really excited to be a part of the inaugural Scottish Kids Show at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre on the 28th & 29th June.  It sounds like it's going to be a great day out - look out for us in our playspotter t-shirts if you come along!  
We have been running competitions to win tickets and congratulations go to the winners so far!  Everyone who writes a review between now and Sunday 15th June will be entered into a draw to win a pair of tickets - so get reviewing anywhere you have played recently!
 
Thank you very much for all your support so far - please do forward this newsletter on to any of  your friends who you think would be interested - and don't forget to visit  http://www.playspotter.com and review any places you have played in!
