It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day! Here’s a way for your kid to score some extra doubloons.

Fun fact: scurvy can make your teeth fall out, which means that many pirates had the same problems as our gap-toothed elementary school kids. So what a perfect little way we’ve discovered to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day! This ceramic Tooth Fairy Dish hails from CMP favorite mom-run shop The Brick Kiln on Etsy, and makes tooth-to-booty transformations cute and easy. Plus? How great to find one that doesn’t have a fairy on it for our sons (and daughters) who may not like such things. Even if they do like the actual tooth fairy.  You can personalize the name, hair...

Ahoy! Plunder this treasure of adorable shirts for your favorite matey

Avast me hearties, it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day! And if you have a little landlubber who likes to plunder your desk drawers and yell arrrrrrr at all hours of the day and night, we have got the cutest little tee to add to your booty. The Pepe the Pirate tee from b. childrenswear features a kid-friendly design for kiddos with an affection for life on the high seas. I’d call the design “pirate lite” since Pepe looks like he’d be perfectly amenable to swabbing the deck a second or third time, instead of doing something truly lawless. If...

Pirates vs Ninjas, the final showdown

Ready to put an end to the old question about how one man can defeat 10 ninjas? Well if he’s a pirate in the hands of a very good checker player, it’s not only possible, it’s likely. The pirates vs ninjas checkerboard from Brooklyn artist Anna Donado of Goosegrease, is amazing both in concept and in execution. It’s all handmade and handpainted using non-toxic materials. (She specializes in cake toppers, so one would presume that she knows a little something about non-toxic paints.) Of course 34 handmade characters, the checkerboard, and a little muslin bag for storage doesn’t come...

The Dread Crew – What’s a summer reading list without pirates?

After falling in love with Canadian mom Kate Inglis’ writing at her personal blog Sweet Salty, it was no surprise to me that she’d write a book. But what I didn’t expect was that it would be the fantastically scrumptious morsel of kid fiction, The Dread Crew: Pirates of the Backwoods, now finally available in the USA. [see the giveaway after the jump!] The story begins with the pirates of the Dread Crew lost in the Maritime woods, with self-proclaimed pirate tracker, Eric Stewart, hot on their tail. We then follow his wonderful adventures, all of which are illustrated...
