extreme makeover: minivan edition

>> Monday, July 12, 2010

I think the Toyota PR peeps must have read my Minivan Convert essay in hip Mama, don't you think?




This had me laughing out loud. I love it. Whoever is responsible for the makeover of the minivan's media image deserves a huge bonus.


(Can you believe Toyota isn't paying me a dime to share this here? Seriously. I'd happily barter blog space for an upgrade from my dented [whoops!] '04 Sienna [see below]. Nope, I wouldn't turn them down...hear that Toyota? I'll take it in silver or black, thank you very much.)

Also: thank you for your comments on that last post. It means a lot to Alison and to me that we recognize these losses, acknowledge those all-to-brief lives, and bring the emotion that accompanies those tragedies into the light so that people can better understand what grieving parents are experiencing. So thank you.

Hilarious! We TOTALLY need a minivan but I've been holding out ... my car is nearly the only thing I have that doesn't scream "MOMMY" these days.

oooh we have an '09 sienna in black and seriously, i love it. its a lot less mini-vanny than i had feared. husband loves that it can do 0 to 60 faster than some sports cars....

I catch myself singing that song from time to time! I DON'T have a swagger wagon, and that means with 4 kids I can't bring the double stroller and do all my grocery shopping all at once.

Love it! When we bought a new vehicle two years ago I couldn't bear to buy a mini-van. I just couldn't. So we went with a Jeep Liberty. It looks good alright, but boy am I paying for the lack of space.
