There is a new line of dolls that are inspired by the Netflix series Project MC2, which follows four girls that are undercover spies using science and math to solve their challenges. The premise is to show that girls can be interested in those careers and subjects. This line of math and science-loving dolls comes […]

Tiggly Toys – Interactive Learning

I love it when my review of toys coincides with my families activities and this new game/toy from Tiggly called Tiggle Words does that!

Versa Bricks: Connecting Toys Together

Have you ever backed a Kickstarter campaign? I never have, until yesterday. So why did I finally take the leap? Because I loved the concept of Versa Bricks. It was the first product that I think should be on the market, as opposed to just liking the concept for myself or supporting a start up. […]

If you had to name some classic games that all children should have, what would they be? I thought about it recently and one that came to mind was Tinker Toys. Spools, rods, flags, washers, end caps, and more are part of the Tinker Toys tools. Whether the classic set, the new girl pink, or […]

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 […]

WonderWorld Toys

A lot of Moms (myself included) look to add a variety of eco-friendly, non-toxic, green toys to their kids’ toy repertoire. Yet, without a standard for such toys, there is a little bit of ‘buyer beware’. Because you may do a search for ‘green toys’ on Amazon.com, and this will come up. Which is probably […]
