Cody the Opossum
“Happy Stowing and Towing”
Cody is My-Stow-n-Tow’s happy friend and ambassador. She is an opossum. Opossums are North America’s only native marsupials; meaning Cody carries her young in her pouch. Just like Kangaroos! She happily tucks them away tidily keeping them safe and easily bringing them along on all her adventures.
Cody and My Stow-n-Tow have lots in common!
We strive for quality and aim for excellence at a reasonable price. We are proud that My Stow-n-Tow totes are handmade with care using the best available materials. Our totes are designed to be handy, colourful, and fun so those who own them are happy and motivated to use them.
We strive to be as green as possible when creating our products. When possible we use natural fibres and our scrappiest of fabric scraps are put to use. We also extend our green philosophy to our office supplies, using recycled materials whenever possible, and to marketing – trying to keep it as paperless as possible.
My Stow-n-Tow creates reasonably priced, useable and practical items, by our own design, with fabulous fantastic fabrics. We believe that by using colourful and happy materials, individuals will be more inclined to use and reuse our products, thus helping keep things just a little bit more ‘green’. Every item we create is made in the spirit of simple stow and tow. Promoting the notion of keeping things tidy and towable – just the way we like it.
Our focus is three fold:
- First, organizational, My Stow-n-Tow offers a tidy and neat way of storing and towing; lunch/snacks, shoes, clothing, cosmetics, toiletries, toys, craft supplies, library books, diapers, swim gear, and the list goes on…
- Second, the My Stow-n-Tow is a quality handmade product that is environmentally friendly.
- Finally, My Stow-n-Tow is the perfect compliment to an organized lifestyle and helps encourages independence and responsibility for even our smallest friends.
My Stow-n-Tow is specifically designed to be easily carried, open and closed, and packed and unpacked by even our youngest friends. Tots as young as two will be able to participate in easy and fun sorting, storing, cleaning-up, and packing by filling the tote and pulling it shut. Then simply stow it away or tow it along.
It is a great way to keep your activities organized and less hectic. Dedicating a different tote to each activity is a great way to stay organized and to help develop responsibility and independence -instilling pride and ownership involved in extra-curricular activities. One for music class, one for gymnastics, one for library – the possibilities are endless.
Hon & Shauna Rae
My Stow-n-Tow totes came about after a casual conversation between neighbours. Both households had recently gone through the transition of new additions to their families. Once upon a time both households were tidy, organized – worthy of a magazine shoot (perhaps) and they were now inundated with the joyous clutter that comes along with new members of the family. Something had to be done. One armed with an idea, and the other a sewing machine My Stow-n-Tow, came to be.
