When I was approached about including the Sphero Ollie, the robot that is controlled by an app for your Apple or Android device, in my Holiday Gift Guide, I did not hesitate to say yes! Oh, not for my daughters, or even for me. This little guy will be wrapped and under the tree for my husband (now is the real test of if he reads my blog, isn't it!). A mere 9.96" x 4.84" x 4.29" inches and 1.3 pounds, Ollie is going to be hours of fun for our whole family because there is no way that the girls Read more [...]
Sometimes I work with a company that has such a great product, I can't wait to work with them again. Libre Tea is definitely one of those companies!

It still amazes me how much technology that my children have access to on a daily basis! I certainly don't want them to be behind their peers, and we're clearly not against screen time, but I have no interest in handing over my laptop or our tablet to young children who are still known to have sticky hands or a tendency to jump up off the couch, completely forgetting about what might be in their lap. My friends at VTech Canada are playing Santa by sending their InnoTab MAX in pink for my daughters Read more [...]
