The Toys I Will Keep Forever— Mini Reviews

The Toys I Will Keep Forever— Mini Reviews

I am 53 years old and all my kids have grown and left my nest. However, I still have toys that I will keep forever. When my husband and I were young parents, we had the compulsory playroom full of toys. We had Teddy Ruxpin. Teddy Ruxpin read books aloud. He lost his voice when [...]

Lift and Look Book Review

Lift and Look Book Review

My daughter loves books. She enjoys flipping through them, chewing on them, coloring in them (ugh!), lifting flaps and tearing them off. I think most kids enjoy these things. When we were gifted two Softplay Sesame Street Lift and Look books, she was very into Elmo and very into gumming everything. They were a hit! [...]

Crayola Twistables Crayons Review

Crayola Twistables Crayons Review

Coloring is a source of great delight for my daughter. She can scribble and scribble all day! However, she isn’t very gentle with her crayons and it upsets her when they break (even though she intentionally smashes them onto the table, and then sometimes even steps on them). Someone suggested that I try the new [...]

Mega Bloks Review

Mega Bloks Review

Playing with her Mega Bloks is my daughter’s new favorite pastime. We gave them to her on Christmas morning and she’s been obsessed ever since. At first, she just threw them and hit them against each other because she loved the noise that they made. Then, she would randomly stack them on each other with [...]

First Learning Construction Train

First Learning Construction Train

For Christmas, C’s grandma and grandpa bought her the First Learning My First Construction Train Set. She is currently on a train kick, and so she was thrilled to have a train with working wheels that she could roll around the room. I was happy to see the colorful building blocks the train is comprised [...]

Melissa & Doug Food Play Sets

Melissa & Doug Food Play Sets

For Christmas after my son turned two, his grandparents bought him a play kitchen. He already had a set of pots and pans and a set of felt food from Ikea, but now he had a kitchen to cook it all in! I went online to look for different options when it came to play [...]

B. Times Square Activity Cube

B. Times Square Activity Cube

When I first received the B. Times Square activity cube, I was excited because I’m always drawn to the cute and colorful toys that B. makes. However, this particular toy is just not functional, in my opinion. It boasts “six sides of fun” including a bead maze, clock, shape sorting, a piano and a phone. [...]

LeapFrog Lettersaurus

LeapFrog Lettersaurus

My daughter absolutely loves her LeapFrog Lettersaurus. It’s one of the few toys that has a permanent place in our living room and doesn’t go into the toy box. It was a gift from a friend for her first birthday and it is now one of her favorite toys— she plays with it every day [...]

Luv U Zoo Musical Mobile Gym

Luv U Zoo Musical Mobile Gym

When P was about two or three months old, I went in search for an activity mat. He was at the point where he was awake for longer periods of time, and I wanted some place for him to have tummy time as well as a mat where he could safely play. After looking (for [...]

Soothe and Glow Seahorse

Soothe and Glow Seahorse

Sleep is precious in any house with a newborn (or infant… or toddler…), as any parent will tell you. There are many sleep soothers on the market to help your child fall asleep and stay asleep. For any mom who’s learned to function on two hours of sleep a night, the Fisher Price Soothe and [...]
