My youngest son is BEYOND obsessed with trains, and more specifically Chuggington! Everything’s always “Chuggtastic” or “Perfecto” with him! So you can imagine how loud the squeal was when I showed him the Chuggington toys and DVD when they arrived on our doorstep! The Stone Quarry Stack Track came out of the box immediately and […]
Do you and your kids love the “old school” classic Mickey Mouse cartoons (remember “Steamboat Willie,” the very first Mickey cartoon in 1928 that shot the mouse we all know and love to fame?)? Well you’re in luck because the original Mickey is starring in an all new short-form series of 19 comedy cartoons, titled […]
With my kids home during the day and on the weekends during the summer, it’s hard for me to come up with fun activities and outings to keep them entertained while staying on budget. Parents, does this sound familiar? This summer the Philadelphia Museum of Art is kicking-off Art Splash, a new series of exhibitions, festivals, […]

I remember The Berenstain Bears’ books from when I was a little girl and loved reading them. […]
Octonauts, an animated TV series by Disney, is adorably perfect for my boys, who will turn two and five this April. My oldest loves swimming and visiting the beach, so he is very interested in the ocean and life under the sea.

Many kids are looking for mp3 players, iPads and other devices to listen to music on or play games. Thankfully, there are more and more electronic gifts that serve an educational purpose, […]
Finding a teether that works can seem elusive because your baby’s preference will change as he progresses through different teething stages. I spent a lot of money testing different teethers when I was a new mom only to find my baby didn’t like most of them. With my second, I was fortunate enough to receive a complete set of MAM Teethers.
I wrote before about how much my boys love Peppa Pig on NIck Jr. Peppa Pig is a lovable, cheeky little pig from the UK, and the charming cartoon follows her family life and daily activities. Peppa arrived in the US last year, quickly becoming a hit with US audiences. And now her toys have arrived at Toys R Us!
Did you know that July is National Park and Recreation Month?
Having clean, well-equipped parks near our house has encouraged us all to be more active and to spend more time outdoors. My boys love visiting the park, and the playground with its twisty slides, bridges and swings is a favorite. I volunteered as a Parks & Recreation board member for a few years while I was serving on our local school board. In fact, my son now attends the soccer program that we discussed opening while I was on the park board.
