Dummies-Playdates Helping Hands Name Change | Baby with Dummy and Nanny from Dummies and Playdates Nanny and Babysitting Agency

Finally my very first post on our Blog
Dummies-Playdates Helping Hands Name Change
As you may have noticed Helping Hands Nanny and Babysitting Agency
Has had a name change to Dummies and Playdates Nanny and Babysitting Agency.

You may have wondered why we decided to change our name after nearly 2 years of trading with a name that really went to the heart of our agency Helping Hands.

It was a discussion that was not taken lightly.

As Helping Hands was the heart and sole of our agency and will always be the heart and sole of the agency even as we change our name to Dummies and Playdates.

Dummies-Playdates Helping Hands Name Change

We are still that Helping Hand and are there when you need us the most.

The reason why we decided to change our name to Dummies and Playdates Nanny and Babysitting Agency.

Is very simply we wanted to take out a Trade Mark to protect our agency name Helping Hands Nanny and Babysitting Agency trading under childcare.

At the time of setting up the agency we did it on a shoe string-start up with my own money.

So at the time we just couldn’t afford the extra cost of paying for a Trade Mark until 18 months later.

But then it was just too late as someone else put in an application for a Trade Mark for a long daycare centre under childcare, just 2.5 months before we put in our application.

Of course the Trade Mark that is received by the Trade Mark Office first will be looked at first.

We did receive a letter saying that we could still take out a Trade Mark under Helping Hands Nanny and Babysitting Agency but not in the childcare section that we needed – a nanny agency is all about childcare so what other section could we go under and that was none.

A Nanny Agency not being able to trade under the section it supports…… So hence the name change to Dummies and Playdates Nanny and Babysitting Agency,

Some people think why Dummies and Playdates.

The reason behind is, I love my two little stick figures that are my logo, they needed to stay and the word Dummies (in Australia we use the word dummies and not pacifier’s like in the US) see below:

Cambridge Dictionaries English definition of “pacifier”
pacifiers noun (c)
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/pacifier

1. something that makes people calm when they are angry or upset.

2. US (UK dummy) a smooth rubber or plastic object that is given to a baby to suck in order to comfort it & make it stop crying.

dummy noun (C) (FOR BABY)
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/dummy

1. UK (US pacifier) a smooth rubber or plastic object that is given to a baby to suck in order to comfort it and make it stop crying.

A brief look a website for the history of:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacifier

So the word Dummies is for a baby’s dummy and the word Playdates is for all the kiddies who like to play and arrange playdates.

So put them together means. We look after babies right through to older children.

Hence Dummies and Playdates Nanny and Babysitting Agency:

We are now waiting for our New Trade Mark to come in so that will be very exciting when it does so far all seems good.

As Dummies and Playdates is a Nanny Agency that is here to stay:
