Just Pretend Kids Review and a Giveaway!

What happened to imagination? When I was a little girl, I remember spending hours playing with Barbie dolls and playing dress up. Sometimes I feel like our society is pushing our little ones to watch television and play video games and forget about how much brain power and imagination can be cultivated by a single [...]

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 [...]

Crayola Color Wonder Paints and Markers Review

Crayola Color Wonder Paints and Markers Review

My two-year-old daughter is a little artist. She loves to color, draw and paint any chance she gets. The only problem is that I worry about the mess. I worry that she’ll accidentally color on my table or the chairs, or the wall (which has happened before). So when I found out that Crayola had [...]

Boot Scoot Zoomer Bike Review

Boot Scoot Zoomer Bike Review

I have some wonderfully fond memories of bicycle riding when I was a kid. I adored my red Radio Flyer tricycle that I laid on it’s side when I wasn’t riding it because the big kids laid their two-wheeled bikes on the ground too. Next I graduated to a pink Strawberry Shortcake bicycle and then [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Vtech Kidizoom Camera

Vtech Kidizoom Camera

We take lots of photos in our family, so it’s only natural that my son has taken an interest in being behind the camera too. For a little while I let him play with my Canon point-and-shoot camera since the screen was broken. He lost interest when he realized the screen wasn’t getting fixed, “Mommy, [...]
