Marie Curie sample page3

Knowitall.ch guest blogger and Vevey-area resident, Micaela Crespo is radioactively excited to announce the launch of the Marie Curie Alumni Association’s illustrated series, My Super Science Heroes, for kids aged 5–8 years.

My Super Science Heroes is an exciting new picture book series that depicts science as it really is: an epic adventure complete with heroes, villains, and amazing super powers.

The first book, Marie Curie and the Power of Persistence, uses a novel storytelling approach to bring this historical figure to life for readers both young and old. Written and illustrated as a dynamic superhero story, this book introduces children to important scientists and their key accomplishments in a fun and engaging way.

2yourdoor bike delivery

Special discount for knowitall.ch readers throughout May!

A new delivery service has just been launched in Geneva, which allows customers to receive deliveries from neighborhood stores in under an hour… including Sundays, where places are open!

Developed by enthusiasts of technology and convenience, 2yourdoor.ch went live in November 2016. Since then, the site has grown rapidly with new shops and product offerings being added on a regular basis. Today, the site allows customers to order more than 40,000 products from around 250 locations in Geneva (restaurants, supermarkets, grocery stores, butchers, Halle de Rive, bakeries, pharmacies, florists, etc.)

Asked what inspired them to get into the delivery business, the founders told knowitall.ch, “We are passionate entrepreneurs with years of experience in big multinational corporations and lots of expertise in customer service, sales, digital marketing, and e-commerce.  With our entrepreneurial mindset and relevant experience, we felt we could create something of value. There is a need in Geneva for a service of this kind and we felt empowered to address the current demand."

Little Red Fox Designs is offering knowitall.ch readers a special “3 for the price of 2” offer on all greeting cards purchased through their website before the end of December 2017.

With most cards priced at just Fr. 5.-, that means you get the chance to buy 3, beautifully hand-crafted cards for just Fr. 10.-, which in Switzerland is quite an achievement!

Given the huge choice of whimsical designs available, you can be sure to find a card to match your needs. In addition to birthday, baby, friendship and nature cards, there are sympathy, thinking-of-you and get-well-soon themes, as well as an extensive selection of intricate designs covering special events such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas, and New Year.

Appealing, make-you-smile cards
Asked how she came to set up her own card business in Switzerland, Designer and Founder of Little Red Fox Designs, Audrey Puttemans, told knowitall.ch, “I have been drawing greeting cards as a hobby since 2013. In 2015, when my young nephew in the United States was hospitalised, I realised there was a dearth of appealing, make-you-smile cards for children in the big stationery stores. I couldn't find anything that I would have wanted to send him to cheer him up, so I sent him one of my own creations. It was then that I realised that there may be other people who liked my designs too, and Little Red Fox Designs was born. The Little Red Fox was one of my early doodles, and I found him so winsome that I chose to make him the face of my company.”

robin all for kids 2015

The online toy shop, All For Kids, is closing its doors after nearly 20 years of invaluable service to English-speaking families living in Switzerland.

Since Robin Bognuda first launched her company as a mail order catalog business all those years ago, she has gone out of her way to source some of the most creative and inspiring products that you will ever find for children. She has striven to find items that have been recommended by teachers or families but aren’t readily available in the stores here. Quality has been a top priority for her, so most items featured on her website have won awards.

When Know-it-all passport editor, Lisa Cirieco-Ohlman, first heard the news about the closure, she told Robin, "I am not sure if I should say “sorry to hear that you are closing” or “congratulations on such a valuable service you have provided for the last 20 years and now you can sit back and enjoy your life”!"

However, the good news is that all Robin's stock must now go, so she is offering an incredible 50% off all items featured on her website until stocks last – and that includes the last 5 copies of the new 10th edition of the Know-it-all passport that she currently has in stock! So if you haven’t yet bought your copy of the guidebook, or would like to offer it as a gift to someone else, then don’t waste any time ordering one from the All For Kids for site, because they won’t remain in stock for long!
