Alicia Silverstone Clueless?

So my husband just showed me the link to the video of Alicia Silverstone feeding her son by chewing up the food in her mouth first, then feeding it to him, mouth-to-mouth style like a bird. He knew it would send me to the moon. Though I can’t fault her if she feels some connection […]

Floppets: A Personalized Gift for Kids

I have a toddler who is learning to zip and unzip his coat. Like many children who I’ve worked with over the years on their fine motor and self-care skills, aligning zippers is often a challenge. For some reason their little hands have a hard time grasping the zipper. So in the past I’d often […]

Buzz Blast Game Includes Highlights Hidden Pictures

When you were a child did you receive Highlights magazine in the mail? I didn’t, but my neighbors did and I’ll always remember wanting to get a nice colorful marker to search for those special Highlights hidden pictures. There are some great Highlights educational games on the market now,  like Buzz Blast, that are in […]

A few years ago, I remember walking the aisles of Target, and there at the end of the row was a giant horse toy, Butterscotch, who was literally a life size pony.

Great Toddler Back Pack by Neat-Oh

My 2-year-old, like many other boys I know, is a car nut. Maybe it’s because when we take a trip to Target, small cars make the best impulse buys for this age group because you can purchase them for $1.00. I never worry about losing them and because they are small enough to fit in […]

This year at Toy Fair we noticed an unbelievable amount of games that are going to be brought to market  that involve apps for use on the iPhone or iPad. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Hasbro is one of the dominators in the family game market, so I don’t know why […]
