Super Wings

(We received Super Wings in exchange for this post.)

Raise your hand if you can rattle off the name of all the shows your kids watch. Mine is not raised. You see, I didn’t know that Evan was into Super Wings until I brought him home some figurines and asked him if he wanted to check out the app. He looked at me like I was on something, like why don’t you know I like them?!?! keep reading

Rainbow Jam


If your kids love music and need to learn their colors, might we suggest the Magic Moves Rainbow Jam? It’s a toy that is shaped like a microphone that sings songs about colors that your child touches. With two modes of play, your child can also use it as an instrument to play songs based on the tones the toy associates with colors (including colors out in the real world, like your child’s shirt!). keep reading

We were sent the Design and Drill Flower Power Studio, an on the go set including a drill and bolts to make patterns and designs. She was drawn to the shapes and bright colors, and quickly figured out exactly what to do with the tool set. keep reading
