Meet the newest Maplelea Girl Charlsea (with a special Christmas giveaway)

It’s been almost a year since our first Maplelea Girl doll joined our household. I have learned that there is no way to guarantee that my daughters will truly love a toy until it has been in our house long enough for the novelty to wear off, so I was a little concerned that Saila would be forgotten by spring. Thankfully, she and her dogs, Nukilik and Nanuq, have become treasured companions to Ashlyn so it came as no surprise to me when a new Maplelea Girl was added to Ashlyn’s Christmas list.

I find it kind of funny, because I was always good at math and science as a kid (lets not talk about statistics in university, ok?) and never reHmember anyone having the audacity to tell me that I shouldn’t have excelled in those topics because I was a girl, but I also recognize that not all girls are that fortunate. I’m also a big fan of toys that Read more […]

Rock around the block with Rockboard Original Scooter (#giveaway)

Winter is definitely on it’s way, but for now our sidewalks are clear and we’re trying to stay active outdoors as much as possible. The bikes have been put away in anticipation of the snow that we will surely see soon but we have a fun new toy to use: a Rockboard Original Scooter. The Rockboard Original Scooter comes fully assembled. All I had to do was take it out of the box, set the handles up (they fold down for storage) and adjust the handles to the correct height. If you are not familiar Read more […]
