I know all you mamas out there are trying your best to help your kiddos cope with the new restrictions and fears that we all are experiencing.

Corolle dolls: a friend you can count on

Corolle Walk 3

I’ve said it for years and I’ll say it again: Corolle dolls aren’t just any old baby doll – they are best friends.

Now, more than ever, we need simple pleasures and the reminder that things will be okay again

Music Studio Pack: where tech meets music

Tech Will Save Us Music Kit

These kits seem like toys at first glance with their bright colors and cardboard housings. But, these are real musical tools that kids can utilize to learn the basics of music, layering, and even a bit about musical theory. I bet you will be surprised by the kinds of music your kiddo can create with just a few DIY kits.

With a growing Modarri collection that includes race cars, sport cars, street cars, concept cars, and off road cars amongst other things, I honestly thought we were done being wowed by Modarri. But, then we heard about the newest Modarri cars, the Monster Truck series.

The perfect preschool activity: Big Gem Diamond Painting

Creativity for Kids Big Gem Diamond Painting unicorn

It’s such a rewarding feeling when you find a project that your child really clicks with, and this kit from Creativity for Kids is definitely on that list. My little one was so into the placing of the gems for her unicorn project that she spent hours perfecting her piece and I had to convince her to stop working on it each time we had to end craft time.
