<p><span class="xn-location">PORTLAND</span>, Maine, <span class="xn-chron">March 17</span> /CNW/ -- Kids Crooked House announces a new Canadian partnership with <span class="xn-person">Ted Glover</span> and <span class="xn-person">Brian Wooding</span>.  Based in Gananoque, Ontario, which is located in the heart of the Thousand Islands, the duo will license, manufacture and distribute the U.S. based Maine-made wooden Kids Crooked House playhouses   throughout <span class="xn-location">Canada</span>.</p>
<p/>
<p>In response to the world-wide attention Kids Crooked House has received over the last year and a half, this partnership will help to make Kids Crooked House available to more children and families.  After achieving tremendous success in the <span class="xn-location">United States</span>, Kids Crooked House is expanding to the Canadian market and potentially additional international markets in 2010.</p>
<p/>
<p>"We are all very excited to see Kids Crooked House expanding to <span class="xn-location">Canada</span>.  <span class="xn-person">Ted Glover</span> and <span class="xn-person">Brian Wooding</span> share the same desire and commitment as we do here, so they are a natural fit to help us to continue to grow the company," said <span class="xn-person">Glen Halliday</span>, creative director and CEO of Kids Crooked House.  "Our expectations in <span class="xn-location">Canada</span> are high and we're very proud to have a presence there now with the help of our new partner."</p>
<p/>
<p>Kids Crooked House is inspired by, and infused with Maine and its natural wonders. Glen and his cousin, <span class="xn-person">Jeff Leighton</span>, built their first crooked house because they loved being outside and wanted their kids to love it, too.  Glen and Jeff want nothing more than to encourage children to use their imaginations as wildly as possible and with the diverse range of playhouses Kids Crooked House offers, it isn't very hard to do.</p>
<p/>
<p>"I'm looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in our Canadian Kids Crooked House family-run business. I will continue Glen Halliday's vision, which is, dedication and devotion to delivering the best quality of Kids Crooked House products and getting kids outside and discovering their imagination.  Kids Crooked House core values are a perfect complement to ours; commitment to kids, safety, family and fun," commented <span class="xn-person">Ted Glover</span>.</p>
<p/>
<p>Kids Crooked House has recently been featured on several U.S. based television programs including, Jon & Kate Plus 8 on TLC, King of Dirt on the DIY Network and Extreme Makeover Home Edition on ABC.</p>
<p/>
<p>"After 20 plus years running a custom home building business, I look forward to losing my level and building houses a 'little' crooked," said <span class="xn-person">Brian Wooding</span>.  "Like when building a home, a child's foundation is the first and most important part of the development.  We agree that playtime is the key to every child's emotional, social and physical well being.  This is quite simply what attracted us to Kids Crooked House."</p>

    About Kids Crooked House

    
</pre>
<p>Based in Windham, Maine, Kids Crooked House was founded by fun-loving dads <span class="xn-person">Glen Halliday</span> and <span class="xn-person">Jeff Leighton</span>, who couldn't find a unique, affordable and imaginative playhouse for their young kids. They looked in all the big home centers and scoured dozens of web sites. The products either looked like a tool shed for lawnmowers or like a small city with a price to match. For the graphic designer and carpenter/electrician, the answer was simple: Build one of their own. The entire neighborhood was soon hanging out in Glen's back yard. So FUNky was his kid's new crooked house, the rest is (becoming) history.
