Keeping Magic the Bear Safe and Sound!

This is the story of Magic the Bear! Magic is a special bear who travels the country, bringing joy to children everywhere! As many of you know, aside from being the Director of Sales and Marketing for Tag UR It! inc., I am also a full time nanny. Last October I attended Nannypalooza, a national conference for nannies to connect, network, and attend professional development workshops. Each year at Nannypalooza, a new, special bear is introduced to nannies from across the country. That bear spends the year traveling, spending one week with each nanny family! The joy the traveling nanny bears bring to children each year is priceless! This year, I signed up to have a week with Magic the Bear!

Magic started his journey in October. He had some great adventures in the first 6 weeks of his journey, spending time with 5 sets of children. He explored Chicago, visitied libraries and classes, played dress up and had tea parties! He had a blast!! When Magic made it to his 6th stop however, Magic must have been having too much fun and never made it any further. Somehow, something must have happened to Magic the Bear, and with a bit of a mystery and lots of unanswered questions, one thing was for sure; there were lots of children across the country waiting for Magic to come spend a week visiting their family.

When I heard of about the mystery of the missing Magic, I mentioned it to the rest of the Tag Team and we decided that Tag would donate a new traveling nanny bear to finish out Magic’s travels for the rest of the year. Magic2.0 was created! We had the greatest time at Build-A-Bear, creating the perfect friend for so many children to come! After Magic2.0 came to being at Build-A-Bear Downtown Disney in Anaheim, Magic and the Tag Team took a little trip to Disneyland!! Magic met Mickey, Minnie, and explored the park!!

Magic spent a few days here in Southern California. He spent his days with me and my nanny family, having a great time with my sweet toddler and her baby sister! Each afternoon, Magic came to work here at Tag headquarters. Seeing that we want to keep Magic2.0 safe and sound through the rest of his travels, of course we made him his very own Child Safety ID Tag! They are great for furry teddy bear children too!!

Magic is now off to visit his next little friends in New Hampshire. We will miss Magic2.0 and cannot wait to hear about all of his adventures to come. We are so glad to have been able to help Magic continue his journey, we knew there would have been some pretty upset children if the teddy bear they were waiting for did not come to visit!

A Magical Moment in the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland! …and the name tags all around!

What a week for the Tag Team! As a member of the Tag UR It! Inc. team, currently living 3000 miles away from the Tag Headquarters, I was so excited to have the opportunity to spend this week in Southern California.  I have spent the last few days with the Tag Team of Catheryn and Heidi, experiencing some of what Southern California has to offer and enjoying some much needed fun.

Day 1: Dinner at the Capital Grille

Lobster Mac-N-Cheese (via

My first night in sunny California was completed with the best dinner I have ever had.  Catheryn and Heidi took me out to the Capital Grille in South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa.  I had no idea what a treat I was in for!  The Capital Grille’s elegant dining room provided an amazing, sophisticated atmosphere.  We were seated next to the wine room, able to admire the many varieties of bottled wines in their glassed in center room.  After being seated, our wonderful server came over and introduced himself.  Of course, we looked upon his name tag and learned his name was Lorn before he even had a chance to open his mouth.  Lorn could not have been a more perfect host during our dinner.  His recommendation of the Lobster Mac-N-Cheese was spot on! I am a Rhode Island girl and have had quite a bit of lobster in my life.  I can definitely say this was one of the best dishes I have ever had!  The dish is made of a baked Campanelle pasta and fresh Lobster meat, tossed in a Mascarpone, Havarti and Grana Padano cream sauce, topped with Panko bread crumbs and grated white cheddar. (  It is listed as a side dish but we shared an order as an appetizer before our amazing main courses. Lorn was so helpful and friendly, making our dinner and experience one to remember.  It wasn’t until after our amazing meal that I realized that the Capital Grille has locations nationwide, including one in my home state of Rhode Island.  I will surely be visiting the Providence location upon my return home! I am already craving another serving of Lobster Mac-N-Cheese. 

Day 2: Disneyland!

Tag Team takes on Splash Mountain!

I have always been a princess at heart.  Yesterday was a truly magical day.  The Tag Team was in major need of a happy, excitement filled day.  Our day in Disneyland was picture perfect! The sun was shining and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky! Catheryn and Heidi picked me up bright and early to arrive at the park before it opened.  As the opening music filled the air and the gates opened to the firsts guests of the day, we rushed in and ran to our first ride! By 10am we had been on the 5 biggest rides and were eating breakfast! After enjoying a Mickey Mouse shaped pancake, we were in search of another new and exiting ride to check out.  I noticed the big yellow submarines of the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage and was intrigued.  There was a 75-90 minute wait so we decided to ask about obtaining a fast pass.  A very kind cast member named Robert came over to us and asked if he could answer our questions.  He asked me where I was from and Catheryn told him that I was visiting Disneyland for the first time.  He informed us that the Submarine Voyage did not accept fast pass and of course we were a little bummed out, which he could probably tell from my face.  I was having such a great day, I would have waited in the 90 minute line and have been thrilled to ride the submarine! But instead, Robert asked us if we had ever heard of a Magical Moment.  A Magical Moment can be granted by any member of the Disneyland cast.  Robert gave Catheryn, Heidi, and I each Disneyland badges and escorted us around the line of hundreds of park guests waiting to ride the submarine.  He granted us a Magical Moment as we skipped the line and had a great time with Nemo and his friends exploring deep under the ocean on our Submarine Voyage. What an amazing experience! Definitely a memory I will never forget!

A name tag creates a memory.  Two amazing memories were created with the help of two amazing staff members we encountered in the last two days.  It is because of the name tags each of those staff members wore that we were able to make a personal connection with Lorn and Robert and will remember the two staff members who made our dinner at the Capital Grille and our trip to Disneyland so very special this week.
