Little Tikes 3-in-1 Trike (12 Days of Giveaways)

Little Tikes 3-in-1 Trike (12 Days of Giveaways)

We own several tricycles with push bars for my toddler and the Little Tikes 3-in-1 Trike offers some neat new innovations in the toddler-friendly tricycle category.

Also, little “me too’s”, who want to be just like their older siblings, … Read entire article »

She spends hours arranging and rearranging her elves in various scenes, narrating their adventures.  Each of the figures has a fascinating back story for older collectors, though my daughter mostly makes up her own. I love the detail on these beautiful figurines–the body art, the … Read entire article »
