Web Coolness – TV for tots, chat with Michelle Obama, and tips for Halloween

Black NurseryHere are some things we’ve liked reading around the web this week. We hope you will too.


Loving this gorgeous black nursery that is super hip, yet still perfect for baby. (via lil magoolie)

Kristen’s found the cutest new toddler pillow for your little one’s head.

Beloved children’s book The Phantom Tollbooth turns fifty years old, and you can help get its documentary made through this Kickstarter campaign.

Creepily clever, this Itsy Bitsy Spider party would be great for Halloween.

The AAP steps back a bit from their “No TV Ever” stance for kids under 2.

You mean Michelle Obama worries about messing up her kids too? Read iVillage’s frank and funny talk with the First Lady.

Part awesome, part WHAT?, you’ve got to get a peek at this photo gallery of Recycled Halloween Costumes.

Don’t miss this perfect-for-Halloween download, I’m a Vampire by CMP favorite Roy Handy and the Moonshot.

A limited-edition piece of art for the nursery that will also benefit the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Education Programs.

Super cute Halloween costume: the candy corn onesie. And we love this printable Frankenstein Papercraft so much, he may have to stick around after the 31st.

As a final note…while we’re so sad to see Lisa Belkin leave her New York Times column, Motherlode, we’re thrilled to know we can follow her words of wisdom again on the Huffington Post Parenting section starting Monday–now retitled as Parentlode. We’ve also loved hearing voices on the NYT Parenting blog like Judith Warner and KJ Dell Antonia. Yay for more good columns for parents!

Ooof, our hearts: Notes From a Dragon Mom.
