Customize Your Ride: Build-a-Wagon by Radio Flyer

Radio Flyer is a brand name I’ve loved since I was a kid. For our son’s first Christmas, we got him one of those classic, wooden Radio Flyer wagons. It’s a reliably awesome and fun brand with high quality and dependable products that every kid (and parent!) love! And now they have the COOLEST gift idea: customize your ride…

You can build-a-wagon, build-a-trike, or build-a-balance bike! How fun for your child to get involved, help pick out the features of their new wagon or bike online, and see the completed, customized toy in

PLAYSKOOL Parties with Let’s Imagine Elmo

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Playskool. I received product samples to facilitate my party and review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

A couple of weeks ago we had some friends over to play with our new PLAYSKOOL toys! We had a good variety for all ages, boys and girls, and were ready for lots of fun! I love the imaginative play of little ones and am always hunting for toys to inspire that. PLAYSKOOL products are specifically designed

The Food Chain: fun & educational activities for kids

Our 4 (almost 5) year old son is so excited to learn about everything and he really soaks it all in, making it really fun to teach him about the world right now. He’s thrilled to participate in any hands-on activity and we usually learn best by DOING, right? I try to combine different things when teaching (from realizing how I learn best and from previously being a teacher and observing my own students). We read, we draw, we listen, we watch, we do.

Today’s fun and educational lesson is on the food

Indoor fun for kids: with Lalaloopsy

Ohhhh, winter, how I despise you. I hate the cold and all the snow, the lack of sunshine, and being stuck inside. I have two toddlers and if I don’t keep them busy, we all lose our sanity 😉 Some days are already getting a bit chilly this fall and in preparation for the even colder days to come, I came up with a list of indoor fun for kids!

1. Pick a theme! You can make a whole day (or afternoon) of fun If your kid is into pirates, go on a

Our upstairs playroom & the everywhere playMAT

What room in our home isn’t a playroom… right?! We’ve done our best since moving in here just over a year ago to separate the kids’ space from our space, but it doesn’t always work. Toys have a way of migrating. Everywhere.

We have an extra bedroom upstairs and when we moved in, that’s what we used it for… a full-sized bed, an empty closet, and… a room that never got used.

We decided to make it a playroom: somewhere for the kids to hang out on the 2nd story AND a way to

Step2’s Lil’ Chef’s Gourmet Kitchen (giveaway)

I am a Step2 Test Drive Blogger. I received a Step2 kitchen in exchange for my review and opinion. No other compensation was provided.

I’m having so much fun with my kids at their ages right now. Ryan turns 4 in December and Rebecca is 18 months. They’re finally playing together as Rebecca is learning more and exploring everything and Ryan is well into imaginative play. A kitchen is wonderful for creative role-play at Ryan’s age and for developmental skills at Rebecca’s age, like opening and closing, cause and effect (with buttons and

Ryan will huff and puff and blow your house down!

It’s kind of weird to realize what memories you have of your childhood. I mean, many of them are just so random… sure you remember falling off your bike and scraping up your knee or your trip to Disney… but I also have memories of playing “panda family” with the boy down the street, leaving May Day baskets on the neighbors’ front doors, and… acting out plays with my brother for the video camera.

One of our favorites, at least in MY memory, was The Three Little Pigs. I know
