KooKoo Bear Kids, Inc., an online, catalog, and retail store marketer of designer rooms and exceptional gifts, announces a recent appearance on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. KooKoo Bear Kids helped make the dreams come true for the Gilliam family by supplying numerous accessories for the nursery for Maryann Gilliam’s baby girl, Naomi. The room was designed like a carousel featuring a round crib and several carousel horses made into rockers.    

Maryanne and her six children of Armada Township, MI, lost their father in a tragic, unexpected death on Christmas Eve. His death was due to excessive mold, which was found throughout the house, forcing the family to move away. The family applied for a new home with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition – and they were lucky enough to be chosen for the show, which aired Sunday, October 1, 2006.

“We were so excited when we got the call from ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” said Tara Mediate, president of KooKoo Bear Kids and mother of three. “We wanted to help brighten the lives of this wonderful family who had lost so much.”

KooKoo Bear Kids delivered baby clothing, diaper bags, picture frames, silk chandelier shades, and other room decorations for the pink Carousel Nursery, which featured a round crib. Pink picture frames from KooKoo Bear, holding treasured family photos, are lovingly displayed on a white pedestal table with a horse lamp and silk flowers Silk and crystal chandelier shades cover the dainty wall sconces, which are hung next to a vertical row of hand-painted pastel pictures in distressed wood frames, all from KooKoo Bear Kids.

KooKoo Bear Kids also supplied baby clothing, designer diaper bags, and soft, cuddly stuffed animal bears for baby Naomi. The nursery from this build was created by designer, Michael Moloney, who loved the glamorous outcome of the room.
