Yesterday this happy fire engine bunk bed caught our attention. Today it was the real deal.

From our hotel window this morning we witnessed scores of  Las Vegas Fire Department fire engines in action. After hearing 10 minutes of non stop sirens, we realized it must be more than a Vegas stunt. Then we saw the  black smoke billowing from the top of the Treasure Island Hotel and more red and yellow fire engines than we could count surrounding the hotel.

The unsettling sound of sirens continued for over 30 minutes as more and more trucks arrived. Later we learned  41 fire vehicles responded to a fire caused by a roof top swamp cooler and that luckily there were no serious injuries.

A fire hydrant and fire engine find both in the same day.

The wooden fire truck bunk bed pictured above is complete with a steering wheel, tires and ladder, but thankfully NO siren.

Our favorite doll house bed is available once again and should be back in the Totally Kids fun furniture & toys showroom in a few weeks.

SF Kids had a few new chairs and fabrics in their line up.

It’s a Sweet Little Holiday today. The National Confectioners Association has designated July 20 as National Lollipop Day. A lollipop may also be called a lolly, a sucker, dum dum or a sticky-pop. An ice lollipop in the USA is called a popsicle.


The idea of a hard candy on a stick is fairly simple, and it’s entirely probable that the lollipop has been invented and reinvented numerous times. The word “lolly-pop” dates to 1784, but initially referred to soft, rather than hard candy. The term probably derived from the term “lolly” (tongue) and “pop” (slap). The first references to the lollipop in its modern context date to the 1920s.

The first confectioneries that closely resemble what we call lollipops date to the Middle Ages, when the nobility would often eat boiled sugar with the aid of sticks or handles. The invention of the modern lollipop is still something of a mystery, but a number of American companies in the early 20th century have laid claim to it.

How many Licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop“. If you are over thirty, you may remember this question. So….can you answer the question?
