Haba Musical Eggs

  Haba Musical Eggs make unique sounds from clicks and rattles to jingles and chirps. Rosemary and I think these cheerful painted wooden eggs are egg-ceptional. Ba-dup, crash!

Holiday Gifts for (mostly) boys

There are so many great toys out there. I don't know how anyone choose beyond what the kids say they absolutely must have this year. I can tell you what's on my son's list and that will give you an idea of your 8-year old boy: 1. Stylus - his sister has one.

The Earpeace – noise reducing earplugs, but not yet for kids

I received an Earpeace, a pair of noise reducing earplugs a few weeks ago. The Earpeace are an addition to the field of earplugs for adults to cut down the noise while outside or at a loud event such as a concert. They attempt to lower the overall volume while not muffling sound the way foam earplugs do. Independent tests (Michael and Associates) p ...read more

The Zazoo Photo Clock, invented ...read more

Five electronic gifts that are not video games

My kids think I'm a bad dad in our house on at least one score. I don't let the kids play video games during the school week, and so far, we have not let them have a DS or other personal gaming device. We do let them play on the iPad, again on weekends. However, when it comes to video games, we mostly limit use to multi-player games on the Wii, whi ...read more
