Pink Poogle Toy, a December 2010 Review

Kym Huynh —  January 4, 2011 — 2 Comments

It’s 2011 already and is anyone else shocked at how fast 2010 zipped by?

December 2010 was an exciting time at Pink Poogle Toy with the site overhaul starting to make some traction.

We cleaned up a lot of small aesthetic issues that were bugging us and implemented changes that speeds up the website. It is now almost as zippy as 2010. (Get it? Haha. Ha.)

We’re elated with the result and are also proud to announce a new monthly tradition of a month in review of Pink Poogle Toy.
