Not just another kids’ ride, the K8 from Swagtron was built to withstand grownup weight and accommodate grownup heights. No longer do we need to take turns or throw out our backs scooting about the neighborhood, because the K8 gives me my own lightweight and foldable scooter with adult-sized adjustments that has all the bells and whistles that I could have ever asked for.

We’re so excited to celebrate Corolle’s 40th birthday this year, especially since many of those years I’ve personally shared in the Corolle love. We’re officially a second-generation Corolle family, sharing the sweet vanilla scented love of their adorable baby dolls and fun accessories for all ages and stages.
We fell in love with Steiff while expecting our first, and the first thing we bought for her was a special Steiff bear. That special bear has now been joined by dozens of friends on her shelf, and it’s one of our favorite things to collect as a family. I love that each animal or piece is representative of a certain season or specific time, and the newest Candy Rabbit from Steiff is sure to become a beloved friend as well.
Every family wants that idyllic childhood for their kids. One that encourages togetherness, fosters wholesome family values, and allows for their kids to just be kids. American Girl is hands-down one of our very favorite brands for this very reason. Their newest Girl of The Year, Blaire Wilson, focuses on making connections and shows that the value of good old-fashioned friendships is the most important.
Hammacher Schlemmer says their products are among the most unique, advanced, and unexpected in the world, and it really is true. I get giddy when one of their catalogs lands on my doorstep and I cannot wait to see what magic it holds. It has never, ever disappointed. This is definitely true with the new Bruder Toys UPS working Mack truck with forklift that is so realistic and detailed.
Thank you to Lumenico for sending their Aloka Colour & Shine Light for review. All opinions and thoughts are 100% ours. What kid doesn’t want their own special bedside night…
It’s incredibly important to me that I introduce my kids to all aspects of STEM-based learning, especially those that aren’t naturally tech-inclined. In my search for tech toys, I’ve found my new favorite toy that truly makes STEM learning fun: The JIMU Robot System. They can build, code, and play with their own customizeable robot for hours and hours of fun, all while learning the basics of robotics.
We have the perfect gift for every kid on your list! From indoor toys, outdoor fun, imaginative play, and so much more, you will be sure to find a gift for every kid on your list this holiday season.
I’ve heard it said that an expert level of any skill requires 5,000 hours of purposeful engagement in a particular area. If this is true, that means that my husband is an *expert* podcast listener. He recently got the kids hooked, and their favorite is the Six Minutes podcast from Gen-Z Media. We’ve created a curated gift guide based on our love of the show just for fans.
As a family, we stay pretty active. We hike, we skate, we walk just about everywhere, and we’re always up for a multi-city bike ride. But, as active as all…
