Copyright 2004 Boo's Toys & Photography
 From birth, Brenden fought an uphill battle with dignity and courage.  He came into this world folded up like a suitcase and no one knows how long he was like that before birth.  But, it must have been for sometime.  His fingers and toes wouldn't open, his legs and arms wouldn't straighten.  He cried constantly for the first three months of his life.  We sought out help from many sources and received tremendous assistance from some very dedicated professionals.  Little by little, with splints, special shoes, chiropractic therapy, and exercises, he gained back the motor skills that most babies come with at birth.  One week before his passing he had caught up to where he should be physically.  Mentally, he was always miles ahead.  During those two years of treatment and therapies, Brenden never complained, and took on each new challenge with enthusiasm and a desire to overcome his difficulties.

Welcome

Thank you for visiting Boo's Toys.  After working with the professionals that did so much to help Brenden work toward achieving a physically normal life, we realised a few things.  They are:

1> That toys that help children with special needs, be they physical or mental are in short supply, and if available are very expensive.

2> There is a huge demand for such toys.

3> As to be expected, the organisations, services, and societies, that provide the most service to these children, receive the least funding.

It is our goal at Boo's Toys, to construct these toys that are so essential to these children's development, and deliver them to where they are needed most.  If the service lacks funding to purchase these toys, they will be provided free of charge.  We will also have a consumer line of toys that we will sell to the public to assist us in being able to fund the charitable side of the venture and allow us to continue making toys for those services that need them but can't afford them.

The toys will be constructed in a joint effort between adults and children.  It will be a place where kids can learn how to use tools, the basics of business, the importance of doing something for a cause instead of a dollar, and a feeling of accomplishment.  It is a project that we are all looking forward to.  The workshop, which will be in the design of a playhouse will begin construction in April and we should be turning out our first toys near the beginning of summer.  If you would like more information about this worthwhile project, email us at: Boo's Toys


Boo's Toys Truck

This is the truck which will be used for Boo's Toys & Photography. It's a 1971 Chevy C-10 with a 3 on the tree shifter. Brenden loved to ride around in this truck with his Dadda just listening to tunes and enjoying life. He sat up so high on the seat in his bucket that he could see the whole world as we cruised.

Some Things to look Forward to!

  • The Wreck of 78' on the Bateman Family Page.

  • The addition of a Brenden's Friends - a Guestbook for littleboo.ca.
  • Sign Little Boo's Guestbook now! Brenden's Friends
  • The addition of Brenden's Corner - a Message Board where friends and family can communicate, share information, recipes, and ideas.
  • Boo Boots - a collection of Brenden's favorite activities, foods, objects and characters.

We are Under Construction!

This page, as with most of littleboo.ca, is under construction. The construction phase will most likely take six months. At that time it will enter what I call, "the active phase." Content will change, information will be added and updated, and new features and pages will be added. But the core of the network, littleboo.ca, which is the gateway to everything else, will remain as is. This is partly for sentimental reasons but, mostly because I like the design. It's clean, uncluttered, and intuitive to use. While I realise that it takes a bit of time to load the littleboo.ca home page for dialup users, once it is loaded, subsequent pages load quickly because 99% of the graphics are the same on all pages. This is by design since I am aware that over half the people using the internet, do so through a dialup connection with a 486 or less.

Don't Throw away those Stamps!

You know those envelopes that have stamps on them and you throw away.  Please don't...send them to us.  These old stamps that are headed for the garbage can be used to help feed someone.  This is a worthwhile cause using something that usually gets thrown away.  I collect them and give them to our church, who in turn sends them to an society that offers these stamps for sale and donates that money to help feed the hungry wherever the need is most.  Just save them up.  When you have a handful send them to: 840 Irma Road, Kelowna, BC  V1X 3Z9

Just clip around the stamp leaving a bit of a border of paper.  Or, don't bother, just send me the enveloped with the stamps on and I will put some kid to work.  Thank you in advance.
