Using a post-Christmas gift card last month, I came across this toy by Fisher Price called the Fisher Price Fun 2 Imagine Cash Register. I vaguely remember something similar as a child and I took a closer look. As I did, I knew I had found a toy that would make my son AND me, […]

Doc McStuffins Pet Vet Checkup Center

In February this past year, I got a sneak preview of the Doc McStuffins Pet Vet Checkup Center and I was not surprised to see it in the toy line up for 2015; considering that the new Doc McStuffins new Pet Vet episodes had recently launched at that time. I knew it was going to […]

Slick and Sick: New Sick Bricks

The new Sick Bricks are launching March 12, 2015 in the US and in February in Canada, and they are sick, man! (Okay, I can’t really pull that off) but that is the gist of Sick Bricks, and the best way to describe these Sick Bricks is that they are like Lego, Minecraft, and Skylanders […]

Girl Scouts Cookie Oven and More

One interesting fact about me is that, back in the day, I received the highest award in Girl Scouting – the Gold Award. Then, in my 20s, I became a lifetime member of the Girl Scout Association. So, beyond the hundreds of cookies and badges I have earned over the years, the Girl Scouts has […]

Paw Patrol Toys

If your kids watch Nick Jr., then you probably know about Paw Patrol. It is a nicely animated show about team work, helping people and caring. The twist is that it’s about animals doing the rescuing vs. being rescued! My 4 year old loves it because it involves fire trucks, diggers and police cars! What […]

How to Make a Lego Table

My kids have really gotten into LEGOS. More specifically, the DUPLOS. Rather having the LEGOS all over the floor, I wanted to get a DUPLO® Compatible Wood Table, but I wasn’t sure if my kids would be interested. So, before I committed to a big set, I decided to do my own LEGO table DYI […]

Pretty as a Princess with Just Pretend Kids

When I was a little girl, I loved to play dress up. Not to date myself, but there were no products on the market to foster dress up when I was young. My dress up was the ‘old-fashioned’ way. I would take things out of my Mom’s closet or would use items that my Mom […]
