Toddlet Screen Time Best Apps and Learning Programs
Fun kids’ apps and other programs for quality screen time

Like it or not, screens are a part of all of our lives. Try to make the best decisions about screen time limits and screen time use for your kids by choosing TV shows, apps, and games that parents and kids both enjoy. With the right choices, screen time doesn’t have to be a point of contention in families.

BabyTV offers a complete screen time experience

BabyTV is a commercial-free option for parents of young children. The shows and apps are developed by experts and focus on kids under four, introducing fun character like Charlie & The Numbers to introduce counting, Big Bugs Band, who play all different styles of music and The Cuddlies – short stories with a moral. BabyTV isn’t only about letting kids spend time watching action unfold on a screen — there are interactive activities that reinforce learning in fun, exciting ways.

An app to help young readers increase comprehension

Question Builder knows reading comprehension isn’t only about knowing the words on a screen. The app builds critical thinking skills with 1200 audio clips of questions and answers, based on three different levels of abstract thinking.

Young wizards will love the Mathly Hallows

Complaints about the Common Core abound, apps can help kids have fun with math skills within the standards set forth by the Common Core. Work on mental math skills at various levels and protect the Mathly Hallows from monsters. Kids earn different levels from apprentice to master wizard, and parents receive progress reports about the different levels their kids are reaching.

family meals

Making memories with family meals

When I found out I was pregnant, one thing that I was most excited about was the idea of family meals. Gathering around the dining table as a family, everyone spending time together, talking and laughing and eating is just something that I’ve had in my head for years and now that we have a baby who is old enough to join us in eating, it has been such a joy! Sitting at the table eating meals together is one of my favorite memories from growing up, and I love that I am passing on this simple, but important, tradition with my own little family.

plum organics pouch

hello meals baby

Plum Organic Food Pouches

My baby is 10 months old now and he has just discovered the joy of eating. He loves to experiment with different food and textures, and really loves feeding himself. He is actually so independent, that he rarely will eat food unless he gets to be the one in control. This is why Plum Organics food pouches are ideal for him. He can hold the pouch himself and he monitors how much food he gets and when he gets it. Also, I love that the pouches allow my husband and me to eat our own food at the same time! This truly makes for an ideal family meal.

Plum Organics Hello Meals

Gathering around the table, with my baby in his high chair next to us, is just the sweetest experience. Sure, it gets messy, but that’s half the fun! I love his excitement and pride when he feeds himself, and that little grin with food plastered all over his face is simply priceless!

With Hello Meals, his taste buds are happy, but so are all of his other senses as well. Feeding all of his senses is key in keeping him excited about food and eager to eat more! And eating our meals as a family as much as possible is very important to me and I feel that it brings us closer together. It’s important for us to take a pause from our busy lives and spend quality time together, bonding and giving each other our undivided attention. With the busy days and hectic schedules, family meals are truly a valued time in our household and something that will continue to be so.

plum organics hello meals

Since our days are so busy, it’s nice to know that we can feed our baby something that is not only easy-to-make, but also healthy and filling, and something that he actually enjoys! I love that we can make our own recipes, too, and incorporate new foods, like adding some banana pieces to his oatmeal, or peas and broccoli to his quinoa.

Plum Organics really knows baby nutrition and it gives me peace of mind as a mom that my baby is eating something that he likes and that is also good for him. You can read all about the nutrition and ingredients found in Hello Meals here!

Dropprice Social Shopping for the Best Price
Save Money by Social Shopping

Wouldn’t it be great if you could go shopping with a group of friends and the more friends you brought with you, the better the prices were? There is no doubt that I would shop with my friends all the time! But getting a bunch of busy moms to coordinate their schedules to go shopping is a logistical nightmare. Just finding the time to go shopping by ourselves is hard enough, which is why we all love online shopping so much — it’s fast and efficient.

We all know that moms also love buying things on sale… and then sharing their great deal finds with other moms. When I heard about Dropprice, the latest social shopping platform, I knew this idea was brilliant and made for moms!

Dropprice lets moms drop the price on baby and kids’ products with a simple click of a button. The more moms that click to drop the price of an item, the better the savings. All you have to do is visit Dropprice website to view their weekly items and then help drop the price — the more moms that collaborate, the more everyone saves.

Dropprice Lassig Diaper Bag Social Shopping

Moms can drop the prices on kids products

For example, in this week’s promotion is for the Lassig Tender Diaper Bag. It started out at $135 and for each mom that clicks, the price drops a bit. The price will continue to drop for each mom that participates until it reaches $75 (44% off). This promotion also includes free shipping anywhere in the US!

Participants have the option to share on social media to get more moms to participate or they can “buy now” for whatever price the item has been dropped to at that time. Typically, there are limited quantities available in products, so you can choose to jump on the current price and buy that item you love, or wait to see if it drops as more moms click to drop the price. This is such a fun and exciting way for moms to save lots of money by banding together to get the best price possible on products they love.

To help you get excited about this new social sharing shopping experience, we’ve teamed up with Dropprice to show you just how it works and we’re giving away a $100 Visa Gift Card. All you have to do is help DROP THE PRICE!

$100 Visa Gift Card GIVEAWAY

Give it a try!  By dropping the price on this Lassig Diaper Bag you will be entered to WIN a $100 Visa Gift Card.  All you need to do is click “drop the price” on the widget below for a chance to win. For even more entries, share it on your social media networks via the widget — every time one of your friends also clicks to drop the price, you’ll automatically receive additional giveaway entries.

Ends on 2/13/2015
Must be a US Resident to win.

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!!

Winner was Randi M. and notified by Dropprice via email.

January Baby Bundle

It’s that time again for our monthly Baby Bundle, each month we pick four of our favorite baby gear items and give them all away. January’s giveaway is sure to blow you away! All of these items will prepare you to bring your new baby home and are items every expecting parent should put on their baby registry.

HALO Swivel Bassinett

HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper

Finally a bassinet that allows you to co-sleep safely. The new HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is the only infant bassinet that moves to bring baby to you. Now your little one can sleep as close to you as you want – even right next to you in bed – and still sleep safely in his own separate space. And the more the Bassinest moves, the less you have to – which makes taking care of baby throughout the night a lot easier. A dual swivel motion allows the Bassinest Swivel Sleeper to rotate 360 degrees, which means baby can be pulled right next to you in bed. Also, with its patented retractable wall, baby can be easily lifted out of the Bassinest to the breast for nighttime feedings – without having to get out of bed.

New parents are tired and often confused by conflicting advice to keep their babies close for bonding and breastfeeding, while trying to balance safe sleep practices. The HALO Bassinest comes to the rescue offering a safe sleeping environment for baby, as well as the ability to sleep close. New fabric design now available!

Their collection of soft cotton footies, two piece sets, blankets and take me home outfits are just to hard to resist. Offspring also knows that having a baby can be expensive so the prices won’t break the bank which is what we love because baby’s simply grow too fast!

Peppa Pig can help you embrace winter

The December holidays are only weeks away, and winter lovers have been looking forward to the snow and chillier weather all year. If you need a little encouragement to get into a winter frame of mind — or live in a place where you’re experiencing temperatures closer to swimsuit season than snowsuit season — Candlewick Press wants you to enjoy these precious Peppa Pig books.

Peppa Pig

 

Peppa Pig sweetly celebrates family

You may have seen Peppa Pig on Nick Jr., and now your kids can enjoy her during story time. My kids relate to Peppa Pig, in part because of the relationship between Peppa and her little brother. Unlike many kids books, Peppa’s adventures generally involve her family members, and Peppa Pig and the Day at Snowy Mountain and Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List feature all four members of Peppa’s family.

Peppa Pig
Peppa Pig and the Day at Snowy Mountain

My own favorite snowy day activities involve curling up with a blanket and a warm beverage, but there’s something magical about spending family time out in the snow. When the little Pig family tries sledding, ice skating, and skiing in Peppa Pig and the Day at Snowy Mountain, all sorts of silliness ensues, making it the perfect book for little ones who love to laugh (Candlewick Press). The book is a fun introduction to winter sports, especially for kids who may be nervous about trying something new — we love seeing Peppa become a better skater as she practices with help from Mummy!

Peppa Pig

Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List

Christmas lists are huge in our house, 50% fueled by my kids’ active imaginations, 37% fueled by the piles of toy-heavy catalogs that start arriving in October, and 13% fueled by scissors, markers, and glitter glue. We’ve had several conversations about making sure Santa sees their “real” lists, and they adored Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List, a story centered on what happens when Santa loses his master Christmas gift list (Candlewick Press). Peppa might have to save Christmas, but not until she and her little brother, George, help decorate the extra-large, extra-special tree Daddy chooses.

Peppa Pig

Enjoy the Peppa Pig books this winter

We’re happy to offer you a chance to bring the Peppa Pig books into your home this winter. Whether you’re going to enjoy them with your own little ones or gift them to some of your favorite readers, Peppa Pig and the Day at Snowy Mountain and Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List will soon be must-read seasonal books for your favorite readers.

Who would you read these precious books with?

Introducing WishBin

WishBin

We know it is the thought that counts, but when it comes to the holidays, getting gifts that you love from your family and friends makes celebrating pretty special. However, we all know that leaving countless hints for your husband and sending emails with gift ideas to your loved ones is just plain awkward… if you can even think of gift ideas to send them in the first place!

Thankfully, this year, WishBin has come to the rescue, offering an easy-to-use, free gift registry method for creating a holiday wishlist for yourself and even for your kids (Hello, grandparents? Are you listening?). Use WishBin now to make holiday gift giving easy for you and for your family and friends and keep using it throughout the year to both give and receive gifts that are thoughtful and that you’ll never need to include a gift receipt for.

The details: How it works & how to get it

WishBin

Here is how you get started and how to use WishBin, step-by-step:

  • Start by visiting the WishBin website and click “Get WishBin.”
  • Choose to register using your Facebook account or your email address. You’ll be asked to upload a profile picture, as well as if your account is a wedding registry. You can also add personal dates that might be helpful for gift givers, such as your birthday and wedding anniversary.

WishBin Icon

  • You’ll be prompted to install the WishBin plug-in, which is simply the little WishBin icon that lives at the end of your web browser toolbar. You won’t even know it’s there… until you see something you want to add to your bin!
  • Be sure to take the time to watch the quick WishBin tutorial video, which shows exactly how you add items to your bin.

WishBin How-To

  • Now, start adding items from your wishlist to WishBin just by dragging that cute pair of shoes or that purse you’ve been swooning over to the little WishBin icon on your browser. This will open up the WishBin sidebar, automatically adding it to your bin and allowing you to input any additional details, such as size or color.
Santa Claus has nothing on you

While creating our own WishBin gift registry is fun, we also love the flip-side… how easy it makes gift giving during the holidays and throughout the year. Have your family, friends and those oh-so-hard-to-buy-for teenagers in your life create their own WishBin accounts and you’ll be able to access them easily for the holidays, birthdays and other special gift-giving moments.

Use the “Find Love Ones” search bar in the upper right-hand corner of the WishBin website to find the person you’re looking for. Then, click the “Get Reminders” button to get automatic updates for their birthdays and other special occasions. Easy, right?

You can click straight-through from WishBin to buy the items in their bin and, after you do, WishBin allows you to say that you purchased it, taking it off of their account to avoid duplicate gifts from other gift givers.

Stay connected to WishBin

Today we’re giving away some great new baby products that we love! As parents, we want only the best for our babies, and these companies all know that and deliver on creating great quality products that we believe in.Introducing the monthly Baby Bundle giveaway!

lillebaby carrier

Lillebaby carriers make babywearing a breeze

The baby carrier is my number one baby accessory, hands down. Babywearing has become a part of life for me, and I love it so much. It allows me to be hands-free and mobile, so I can get things done and still have a happy baby! Enter the Lillebaby carrier. If you have a baby of your own, you understand the importance of keeping him happy at all times, to avoid stress and general craziness in the household. I’ve found that when he’s fussy or upset, I can just strap him onto my chest and he’s instantly calm and soothed! It makes sense, doesn’t it, that being strapped close to mama or daddy is his favorite place to be?

Lillebaby makes the most comfortable carrier, with a great back support and padded straps so both baby and mom or dad are happy! This particular carrier is 100% organic cotton, making it so soft and it comes in a pretty blue celeste pattern that we love. You can even carry baby front-facing, rear-facing or on your back! With a variety of positions and the softest fabric, you are going to love the Lillebaby!

monica and andy

The softest blankets by Monica + Andy

Next we have these great Monica + Andy muslin and cotton baby blankets. They are so soft and well made, and perfect for your baby’s gentle skin. I love the size of them, too, as they are great for tummy time, to keep baby warm, as a stroller cover or even a nursing cover! The prints they have to choose from are super cute, too, with the foxes and elephants being my personal favorite. Monica + Andy uses superior fabrics and carry products that are both chic and comfortable, with quality you can feel!

baby pibu

Sensitive skincare for baby by Baby Pibu

Another company I’ve fallen in love with is Baby Pibu skincare. This line was developed by a dermatologist mom, so you know you can trust the products they make, which are all geared toward healing and protecting infants, toddlers and kids. All products are hypoallergenic, irritant free and fragrance free- all very important for your sweet baby’s skin! I especially have been loving Pibu’s Baby Butter skin cream and Diaper Rash ointment. The Baby Pibu products feel luxurious and I love that they are made with Baby in mind.

Difrax Pacifiers

Difrax 3- stage Pacifier System

What’s colorful, trendy, and cute all over?  The hottest new pacifier designs from Difrax, of course!  The award-winning Difrax 3-Stage Pacifier System meets all of the needs of your child’s developmental stages. Difrax pacifiers come in two distinct stylesClassic and Orthodontic and each style has a 3-stage design to accommodate baby’s growth and development. Each pacifier style has a butterfly shape designed to prevent the nose from being obstructed and the added holes in the design allow for sufficient airflow to reduce skin irritation.  Known for their on-trend, colorful pacifier designs, Difrax has added stylish and fashionable new designs to their collection!

Now it’s time for the giveaway, who wants to win all of these amazing products?

Our favorite picks from etnies Kids

etnies Kids

Just like us, you’ve probably heard about etnies Kids, but maybe you had no idea that they carry some of the coolest, most functional shoes for kids right now… and, for price points that won’t make you faint. Here are some of our favorites from their new fall collection…

etnies Kids High Rise

The etnies Kids High Rise ($55) are the classic etnies that we know and love. Available in sizes for toddlers and bigger kids, these are the all-time, super cool, will last through even the most rough-and-tumble kiddos. We love them for their sturdy feel — these are hardly a high-top that your little guy will have falling apart after the first wear. Plus, for fall, the High Rise is perfect for school days, as they are lined with cozy fleece inside to keep his toes warm on the playground. His favorite part about the etnies Kids High Rise? They look like the shoes the pros wear… and, they are, just on a smaller scale!

etnies Kids Scout

An instant favorite at our house was the etnies Kids Scout ($40). These lightweight tennis shoes came as a pleasant surprise to me — I didn’t realize that etnies Kids made shoes like these and as soon as my girls put them on, I knew I’d have a hard time getting them to wear anything else! Not only are they super light and flexible — perfect for both school and weekend adventures — but they come in the coolest, most fashionable patterns.

etnies Kids Scout Pink

My girls also loved the etnies Kids Scout for school. They both have tennis shoes that they wear on PE days, but compared to their new Scouts, their old shoes feel like bricks! I can tell they love them because they can go from the classroom to PE to the playground without skipping a beat, even making the transition with my 4th grader to Girls on the Run after school. The Scout is made to be as breathable and flexible as possible, with etnies’ signature STI Evolution Foam in the footbed that makes kids feel like they’re walking on marshmallows!

How you can #fall4etnies

Have you fallen for etnies Kids, like we have? There is a way you can add some of their new fall collection to your kids’ closets this fall! Start by entering to win a $200 shopping spree from etnies in their #fall4etnies giveaway. You can enter below, or on the etnies Facebook page.

It is Child Passenger Safety Week and with school back in session now is a perfect time to talk about car seat safety, especially with many parents belong to carpools and take turns shuttling kids to and from after school activities. We have teamed up with Britax, the leading car seat manufacturer of car seats and booster seats, to help make sure you and your family are safe riding to and from school every day.

Child Passenger Safety Statistics

1. Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old.

2. During the 5-year period from 2008 to 2012, more than 3,390 children were killed in car crashes. In addition, an estimated 613,000 children were injured.

3. In 2012 alone, 121,000 children under age 13 were injured as passengers in car crashes.

4. Based on U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash data, in 2012 on average, nearly 2 children under the age of 13 were killed and 332 were injured every day while riding in cars, SUVs, pickups, and vans.

5. In 2012, over one third (37%) of children killed in car crashes were not in car seats, booster seats, or seat belts.

6. Every 34 seconds one child, under age 13, is involved in a crash.

7.  All 50 States, the District of Columbia, and all U.S. territories have laws requiring children to be restrained while riding in cars. Some States now require kids to ride in appropriate car seats or booster seats until age 9.

8. The 2013 National Survey of the Use of Booster Seats (NSUBS) shows that only 66 percent of children ages 4-7 were restrained in either forward-facing car seats (20%) or in booster seats (46%). About 24 percent of children ages 4-7 were prematurely moved to seat belts and 9 percent were unrestrained.

9.  Safety is also a big issue for older kids. From 2008-2012, there were 1,874 child passengervehicle occupants in the 8-14 age group killed in crashes. A third of these kids (610) were killed while riding in the front seat. All children under age 13 should always ride in the back seat.

10. Far too many “tween” passengers ride completely unrestrained, exposing them to great risk. Among kids ages 8-14 who died in crashes from 2008-2012, 47 percent of 8-year-olds,

You can visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for more information about Child Safety Seats.

Britax ClickTight Convertible Car Seat Safety

Every Ride

With ClickTight, Britax is able to assure parents that their seats are installed in their vehicles correctly, but Britax also knows that the seat must fit the child properly. All of the new Britax ClickTight Convertible Car Seats include a Quick-Adjust Harness, which goes up to 14 positions, and a 2-Position Buckle to adapt to growing children. The Boulevard and Advocate also have the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator, which removes the guesswork from adjusting the harness to the correct tightness.

It’s common for caregivers to be unsure about the right recline position for a car seat, especially while in rear-facing mode. To ease their minds, the easy-to-read Automatic Level Indicator ensures that they achieve the proper installation angle using any of the seat’s seven recline positions.
