This Mommy blog puts a practical perspective on all types of products -- not just toys and gifts -- for moms and their kids. It will help retailers understand what is important to mothers when it comes to buying for their kids.
Our first day of snow this season, and I'm already sick of the white stuff. OK, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration (it does make all the outdoor Christmas decorations more picturesque). But the freezing temps and slippery travels that go along with it? Yeah, I'd be happy to skip all that. Because we can't exactly fast-forward to spring (heck, it's not even technically winter yet!), we can fanta... Read MoreComments (0)
Is a tablet on your kid's wish list this year? If you're in the market for a model that will keep him happy, but that won't break the bank, we've found what you're after. We got our hands on an advance copy of the VTech InnoTab 3S, and think it's going to make many a kid very happy this Christmas. Targeted at ages 3-9, this tablet spans a wide age range-and with good reason. It comes loaded with p... Read MoreComments (0)
Someone once said if you talk to your plant, it just might help it grow. But did anyone ever think that your precious greenery would talk back-or, at least, have something to say? It's the very reason we are loving this very cool gardening gift that makes a perfect present this Christmas. DuneCraft's Message Beans are like no other terrarium set we've seen before. This all-in-one-kit comes with ev... Read MoreComments (0)
When I was a kid, I accidentally left my box of crayons outdoors on a very sunny, hot day. Once I realized what I had done, I returned to find an amazing creation: a truly one-of-a-kind colossal-sized crayon. Despite its uniqueness, it wasn't exactly practical for coloring (I could barely hold on to it with one hand!). Naturally, I didn't want to part with this, but eventually gave in to reason (i...

It's a rainy day-before-Thanksgiving here in NY, and if you've got cooking and/or baking ahead of you this afternoon, you may want to set the kiddies up with some indoor entertainment. My girls happen to be fans of Guess How Much I Love You, a storybook that's been so well-read, its pages have been tattered and torn over the years (a good indication of a favorite book in our house). The endearing... Read MoreComments (0)
Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! If you're looking for something to do with the kiddies over the long holiday weekend, may we suggest a movie or two? Just released on DVD The Snow Queenis , an animated version of the fabled tale by Hans Christian Anderson that demonstrates the power of family (a fitting tribute to the holiday season). In this story, the title character threatens to freeze the entire w... Read MoreComments (0)

If you're still trying to figure out what's hot for kids this year, let us help simplify your shopping by turning to the just-released 2014 Toy of th... Read MoreComments (0)
With the holidays approaching faster than I can handle, I'm starting to realize that the kids will be home from school before we know it. And with this year's Christmas break lasting a full two weeks (!), that means lots and lots of family time. If you're looking for something that will take the sting out of all that ‘quality' time, may we suggest a weekend away? If that's not possible (hey, join... Read MoreComments (0)
"Did the mail come?" It's the same question my 9-year-old asks the minute she steps off the school bus. And sadly, unless it's her birthday or another holiday, the answer is usually a resounding no. Because both my daughters have always enjoyed playing post office-we've even gone so far as to create a makeshift mail stop in our backyard tree, complete with leaves as letters-it's no surpr...

It's not even Thanksgiving, and it feels like the holiday crunch has already set in. People are racing around town like they're trying to score the last Big Hugs Elmo before it's sold out. The shopping malls are already piping in "Jingle Bell Rock," and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" is scheduled to air two days before you'll be gorging yourselves on turkey, mashed potatoes a...

My 9-year-old loves her Nintendo DS more than me. I don't take it personally, and of course, I'm only half-kidding. But the truth of the matter is, if I were to take a toy away from her as a form of punishment, it would be her DS. Much as I'd love for it to be otherwise-for me, taking my books and magazines away would be pure torture, and her 5-year-old sister, her crayons and markers-I know who I... Read MoreComments (0)
One of my 5-year-old's favorite toys these days is a dress-up playset with a cut-out of a girl desperately in need of a wardrobe change. Simply by swapping out one swatch of fabric for another and closing the frame, she can update the look of her playmate in seconds. I can only wish changing clothes was this easy in real life! What mom hasn't followed the parental advice of laying out the next day... Read MoreComments (0)
