Are you looking for that perfect gift that will make your children's eyes light up when they see it under the tree this year? The Original Toy Company has just that gift The Original See Saw.

I was very surprised The Original See Saw was so easy to put together it too us no more than 30 minutes total to assemble the see saw. Upon assembly I was able to see how truly great The Original See Saw is. It's lightweight makes it simple to move the see saw any where indoor or outdoors. It easily fit in the truck also; making it simple to take to the kids play dates, school functions, birthday parties and anywhere else you could imagine kids would play. Our The Original See Saw is currently in the boys room. They love being able to play with their see saw in the house and its small lightweight design makes it suitable for indoor play.

Time In A Box!

FoxMind Presents the Gift No One Else Can Give

What does every child want? An I Pad? Xbox? Maybe, but what is the one thing that every child wants, needs and deserves? At FoxMind Games they believe they know the answer and today announced the international availability of its new Time in a Box.

The new product, the brainchild of child psychologist and writer Rute Moreira, is more than its contents. It's a gift of dedicated time; an opportunity to try new things; a way to explore art and science; a chance to plan for the future and to consider the past; and a way to tell a child in your life that they matter to you - more than anything!

David Capon, President of FoxMind, explained, "The benefits of Time in a Box extend beyond the product itself because it creates uninterrupted quality moments with the family and reinforces social-emotional connections. It also aims to reinforce the child's feeling of connection to a larger community such as the neighborhood or the town where he or she lives."

When you give Time in a Box, (MSRP $17.95 for 2 players ages 6 and up) you are offering a child you care about the gift no one else in the world can give them: your time. Inside the box you'll find 96 activity cards that allow a child to momentarily shift your priorities and focus on doing a special activity together, such as playing a board game; solving a puzzle; starting a family tree; making a blanket fort; or carrying out an act of kindness that will bring a smile to a stranger's face. Time in a Box includes a simple written agreement between you and the child that sets the ground rules by which you'll both abide. Adults should switch off their smart phones and get ready for some quality time!

"Season-by-season, Time in a Box is a gift that inspires activities that provide a wealth of ways to make memories together and the unique and beautiful box can serve as a memory chest where pictures and notes can be collected and treasured," Capon said.

Order yours today!

Tommee Tippee North America2014 Cribsie Awards
I am the mother of two sons ages four and six.  I have used many of Tommee Tippee's products and have been pleased with the products so much so that Tommee Tippee has become our go to brand for bottles, pacifiers and sippy cups.  I like the design of the Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature baby bottles they are very close to the feel of your actual breast.
Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Fiesta Bottle, 9 Ounce, 6 Count
Sierra wasn't taking any of the bottles the hospital had on hand and gave her so we called Daddy and had him bring Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature bottles for her. Sierra's jaundice is improving because she is able to eat more and isn't getting as much air in her tummy or choked because the nipples are amazing and the bottle works so well for her. They fit the form of my hand, making holding the bottle during feedings easy and comfortable. Each bottle has very visible measuring increments in both ounces and milliliters.  The different colored bottles will aid in my younger children bonding with the new arrival teaching numbers and colors during the babies feeding time.  The nipple size is a must as my child grows I will simply get the next nipple size. Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature is a Cribsie Award Winner also a huge distinction!
New Fiesta Tommee Tippee Bottles @TommeeTippee_NA #TommeeMommee

We’ve designed the unique, easy-latch-on nipple shape with breastfeeding experts to mimic the natural flex, stretch and movement of mom’s breast.

Every baby needs a reliable pacifier and Sierra loves her Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Every Day Pacifiers.

The key features of the Closer To Nature Every Day Pacifiers are symmetrical Orthodontic shape, reversible silicone nipple design, available in 3 age stages 0-3m, 0-6m and 6-18m and BPA free.
