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

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

nobody puts baby in the corner…

Joanna has an 11 month old and you should bug her about when baby #2 is coming along 😉 Thanks to Joovy for providing this product for review. We had one at our Blogger Baby Shower, too, and it is amazing!

Holy having an almost one year old! My name is Joanna

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

It’s a Chef! It’s a Train Conductor! It’s…. RYAN!

Ryan has just expoloded into the world of imaginative play recently. I love listening in on his conversations with his stuffed animals, hearing his stories about his cars and trains, and seeing his version of our favorite books as he “reads” to me. I discovered Aeromax and their dress up gear for kids and fell in love. I have visions of a play closet or coat rack corner for my kids and their dress up clothes and accessories…. don’t you remember those days when you were a child?! I hosted tea
