I had been bugging Keith since I first met everyone to put the group on Facebook. It was so much more practical, and I thought accessible to people. But Keith mentioned that some people weren't on FB and were adamantly opposed. Now, I get that. FB is not for everyone, and Keith didn't want to be exclusive. Fair enough.
But I saw another side to it. You could only join our little group if you met someone in it, or if someone saw you post something on Toytown (the German expat website) and then responded to you and told you about it. That seemed exclusive in its own right. And as the group was getting so big (about 75 people), there was no real good way to network with such a huge email list.
So I staged a coup. Keith was leaving and giving up his duties as LEADER, and there was no time like the present. I created a FB page - Düsseldorf Toddle Play Group - and I floated it out there. Requests to join started pouring in - and as of today we are 124 members!

So if you are new to Düsseldorf and you have kiddos - please join our group! I can't wait to meet you!
