Gazillion Bubble Rocket

We all know how tots go bananas over bubbles, but it just isn’t that fun when the bubbles are made without some effort involved. Bubble machines kind of kill the joy. But then I don’t really want to hyperventilate from blowing bubbles for an hour. This Bubble Rocket get tots to make bubbles themselves with […]

Uck Yuck Worms in Muck Pudding Kit

Boys love yucky mud and they really love worms, so you know they will go bonkers over this very special treat of mud, dirt and squiggly worms all served up in a planter pot! Just don’t tell them it is actually chocolate pudding, cookie crumbs and gummy worms. They do a version of this at […]

Terry Monogrammed Beach Bag

If you have swim class this summer, please raise your hand. My daughter is taking swim class twice a week this summer and I already have issue with the tote bag I’m using for her swim gear. Things get kind of nasty in there with the sunscreen and musty wet clothes and towels. I find […]

Kate Mack Tutu Bathing Suit and Tiered Dress

I just got these for my 2 girls and I cannot tell you how cute they look and how happy they are wearing them. The Tutu bathing suit ($58) is perfect for casual pool parties, I wouldn’t recommend it for swim class, as the tutu does get in the way of competitive swimming. But seriously, […]

Alligator and Shark Goggles

Can’t get your tots to put on goggles for the pool? With these, you won’t be able to keep them off! They will certainly demand to wear them in the bath and everywhere else. I can just hear the Jaws theme song being hummed as your tot terrorizes others in the pool. Or would that […]

Baby Silk Sunscreen Towelettes SPF 30+

The applying of sunscreen is a total drag. Tots hate getting it done and trying to do it quickly leads to no good – either sun burn on missed spots or crying because it gets in their eyes. I have my techniques but nothing beats this – a wipe that is saturated with sunscreen! It […]
