Smile Brilliant – Smile Fearlessly! Enter to win and coupon code

I’ve never had perfect teeth, but I’ve always tried to take good care of them. Twice-yearly dental appointments, twice-a-day brushing and flossing every day (at least when I remember). While I’m grateful that I’ve never had a cavity, I’ve been noticing lately that my teeth have appeared a little less than pearly white. I’m sure this is due to my steady three-cup-a-day coffee habit! Still, it’s a little embarrassing. Especially since my children recently described my teeth as being “yellow.” {Read More}

The Sweet Sounds of Virtuoso Bears

Music is a huge part of my life, and I knew early on I wanted it to be a big part of my kids’ lives, too. We listen to everything from pop to alternative to country to classical, and my children naturally gravitate toward toys that allow them to make or play music. That’s why I love Vosego’s new Virtuoso Plush Bears, which allow kids to learn about music from classical masters while cuddling with an adorable, plush teddy bear! {Read More}

Chameleon Kidz Blendy Pens

We’ve had a lot of rainy days this fall, which means I’ve been searching for indoor activities that occupy my kids’ attention (for more than 15 minutes) and are alternatives to the TV. Luckily, I recently discovered Chameleon Kidz Blendy Pens, which have transformed the activity of coloring for my children… and for me!   One rainy morning I broke out the Blendy Pens jumbo kit, which includes 24 pens, 12 fusion chambers, two posters, two stencils and a Blendypen {Read More}

Elmo’s World Hide & Seek Game

My kids love to play hide & seek. At three and four years old, they don’t quite get the concept of staying hidden until someone can find you, but they squeal with delight when they are “found” and when they have to find someone else. That’s why I love Identity Games’ new Elmo’s World Hide & Seek game ($19.99 on Amazon). It builds upon the traditional rules of hide and seek but builds in the popular Sesame Street character known {Read More}
