Children’s blocks for all

Children’s blocks for all

I notice when I hit the mass kids’ toy stores that the blocks are always in the boys section. It’s bizarre to me because both my daughters love blocks like a frat boy loves Spring Break. And I can assure you they’d go flat out bonkers for the...
Felt like Easter

Felt like Easter

Much as I love to color eggs with my kids, there are only so many hard-boiled eggs one family can eat.  And while the plastic eggs aren’t perishable, they aren’t particularly attractive or earth-friendly either. These felted Easter eggs from astashtoys are...

The year of the owl

If you haven’t noticed, 2009 appears to be the year of the owl– at least when it comes to baby accessories. I suppose that it’s sort of fitting, seeing as how owls are awake all night long, not unlike some babies I know. Sigh. At least this lovely...

Watch your back, Monet

Watch your back, Monet

My daughter is an art fanatic, and would paint until she was blue in the face. Funny, she’s actually done that, with blue hands, arms, clothes…you get the picture. She’s a four-year-old with paints. So when she tried Mahar Dry Goods’ handmade...
Nonstop to Spain

Nonstop to Spain

I love peeking across the ocean via the www to see what our European friends are doing as far as kids and design. Occasionally there’s some wacky baby tee featuring a wolf riding a unicycle with a pig on his head or something, but generally we’re in love...
