Cloud b Sweet Dreamz on the Go (hopefully) helps baby sleep anywhere

Sweet dreams really are the goal of almost every parent, aren’t they? Cloud b offered a Sweet Dreamz on the Go soother as a giveaway on my Storytime Huxley review a few weeks ago and I loved the idea of having a portable sound machine that was also a toy, so I was very happy when they offered one for me to review. Perfect for any little baby you’ll be buying for this season (or for baby showers in the spring!) the Sweet Dreamz on the Go comes in both a Blue Bear and Grey Owl and has the following Read more […]

Share a story from Candlewick Press

I’ll take any excuse to curl up with a book, but there is something extra inviting about snuggling in on the couch with a good book, a blanket, and maybe a kid or two (or a cat, in our house) when it’s snowy and cold outside. These titles from Candlewick Press are all wrapped up and under our tree, just waiting to be opened and enjoyed! We have been fans of “The Princess in Black” since we received the first book in 2014 and I know that both of my daughters will enjoy the latest adventure! Princess Read more […]

Stuff some stockings with PLAYMOBIL®

Stocking stuffers can be both the most fun and hardest things to shop for! You want to find something small enough to fit in the stocking, hopefully not too expensive, but not junk or only candy.

I’m pretty enamored of my new nephew, who is only going to be about 2.5 months old at Christmas. He’s obviously too young to actually play with PLAYMOBIL but I could not resist the Read more […]

Disney’s “The BFG” (#giveaway)

Here’s a question that can divide friends quickly: when both are available, do you read the book or see the movie first? We’re generally book first, but I think we’ll be making an exception for Disney’s “The BFG”. Surprisingly, I don’t think that I read the Roald Dahl classic as a child – though it’s possible that I did and I’ve just forgotten – and Disney’s version is so visually stunning that I can’t wait to share it with my family! “The BFG” unites the talents of three of the world’s Read more […]

‘Tis the season for Boogie Wipes

When you think of the holiday season, you probably think of celebrations, family traditions, and food (just me?). If you have kids, you probably also think of germs, colds and how likely any member of your family is to bring home a new virus to share. Add in the suddenly cold temperatures, and I know that despite our best efforts to wash hands frequently, get enough sleep and take our vitamins, it’s just the time of year for someone to have a runny or stuffed up nose! One of the hardest things Read more […]
