uKloo Treasure Hunt Game

My kids love to play hide-and-seek. Their squeals of delight when they find each other or are found are contagious. Recently we also started playing the classic game, “Huckle Buckle Beanstalk,” where you hide an item and take turns finding it based on clues given by the hider. If your kids also enjoy hiding and discovering items, check out the uKloo Treasure Hunt Game. Not only does it facilitate a fun game of hide-and-find the item, it introduces basic reading {Read More}

Prepare Your Table and Your Heart for Thanksgiving

Hard to believe that Thanksgiving, and the holidays to follow, are upon us. I think the box stores have skipped right over Thanksgiving this year and headed straight into Christmas!  Just moments ago we werew hanging spider webs, ghost, and goblins while helping our children carve the most amazing pumpkin ever to be see on Instagram!! This year is the first time that both both sides of our families will be joining us at our home to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Truth {Read More}

ReadySetz Urban Playset – 15% off!

Who doesn’t love playsets? They encourage imagination, provide a one-and-done play experience and promote independent play. The down side? They take up so much space! I’ve become fed up with the lack of floor space in our basement/play room as the plastic playsets have taken over. Plus, with so many small parts in most of them, it’s usually only a matter of time before key characters or accessories disappear (or get chewed by the dog). That’s why I was really {Read More}

Baby Beluga Board Game ~ A Great Holiday Gift for Children Ages 3-10

If there is one thing I truly enjoy hearing from my children it is the invitation to play a family game!   I’ve said it before having an age gap between my youngest and oldest can make game time a bit difficult.  Everyone wants to have fun, be challenged and my daughter wants so badly to keep up.   BABY BELUGA was a great game for all three of them to play together while leaning to work as a TEAM {Read More}

MaxFlex 300 RC Combo Edition

My kids are BIG race car fans. They love vehicles of all kinds, but the faster and flashier, the better.

Enter the MaxFlex 300 RC Combo Edition, which is super cool in and of itself, but it also connects with other popular sets! You have to love toys {Read More}

Comfy, Cute and Cozy

  Ready to retire the sundresses, sandals and shorts for something alitte more cozy?  I have found one of my favorite tops at Nordstrom by Free People and it comes is several different colors!  This my favorite because it’s soft, flowing, yet still gives you a style that’s cute and doesn’t just hang there! I would recommend sizing down, as Free People tends to be a bit bigger (and you don’t want to get lost in the top).  Here are {Read More}

Kids Embrace Inclusion With Huggable Rag Dolls ~ SELMA’S DOLLS

Raising our children in society today can be a very sensitve matter and it is important to teach our children empathy and that people are different for many reasons.  Teaching our children that being “different” is somethig to embrace and that without differences our world would be very bland.  “Different” should be a word our children choose not shy away from, but instead think of as “UNIQUE”, or “Special”, a positive verb when describing a person. When I was asked {Read More}

Pop-Oh-Ver Playsets

Did you ever play “restaurant” as a kid? My sister and I had an assortment of pretend food, a chair and small table in the corner and a handwritten menu. We’d take turns being the guest and the chef. I still remember it as one of my favorite childhood games! Now that I have children of my own, I love it when they play similar games that make use of imagination – and not handheld technology. I was so excited {Read More}

The Magic School Bus Science Kits: Exploring the Wonders of Nature

School has started and Labor Day is over, which I know means the unofficial end of summer, but Mother Nature is telling us otherwise! We’ve continued to have record-breaking HOT temperatures here in northeast Ohio over the past couple of weeks, so even though the pool is closed, we’re still spending a lot of time outdoors. If you’re running out of ideas for soaking up this Indian summer, you may want to check out The Magic School Bus Science Kit: {Read More}
