    Hurdle the Robot Review and ROBOT #GIVEAWAY

    I’m forever amazed at how technically-adept kids are these days. Technology is a daily part of our children’s lives and will continue to influence how they learn and play. I especially love toys that tap into this reality while also challenging kids to use their imagination. The Young Scientists Club […]

    Manhattan Toy MiO Playsets

    We packed up the kids this week and took a Spring Break trip to Niagara Falls. Knowing we’d have plenty of time in the hotel room and potentially bored/restless kids, I saved a couple of new toys for the trip. This also proved to be a helpful way to get […]

    Paper-to-digital coloring books

    When I was a kid, my mom would hang torn-out, scribbled-upon pages from coloring books on the walls and the refrigerator. I took great pride in my “creations” and the way they were shared with other members of my family. Today, coloring pages can be shared in so many more […]

    Get “Qurious”

    Smartphones and tablets are clearly here to stay. I’m a fan of tools and activities that embrace the use of these devices, rather than unrealistically coming down on moms for allowing their children too much “screen time.” Kids play differently than I did when I was a child, but imagination […]
