When I came across a photo of the classic green Army men doing yoga poses, Yoga Joes, I stopped in my tracks to smile. How awesome and innovate to take a toy that spans generations, and give it a peaceful twist, while also reminding people that yoga is for everyone from all walks of life. I will be pre-ordering a set of these for my son as soon as I can! Yoga Joes was launched through a Kickstarter campaign (which was fully-funded, yay!) by a company called Brogamats. Brogamats’ tag line is “Yoga for dudes. And women too.” Their company […] Continue reading →

Are you scrambling to get the last of your Christmas shopping done? I usually plan months in advance, but this year everything has been last minute. Last minute family emergencies, traveling and business has kept me from my usual organized holiday schedule. I braved the malls today and rumour has it tomorrow is going to be even crazier!   The Amazing Zhus Stunt Pets are new on the market and are designed to perform acrobatics and gravity defying stunts by plunging over 3 feet from the High Dive into a bucket, walking tightrope and run on circus balls. They’re crazy cool!

Fisher-Price East Aurora Power Wheels F-150

My husband’s a Ford guy. It’s been proven with numerous reviews and expert opinions that the f-150 is the ultimate 4×4 and after owning ours for several years, we can attest to the truth of it! Of course, my son is just as enamoured by our truck as my husband which is why I’m so excited about the brand new Power Wheels vehicle inspired by Ford’s 2015 F-150 truck. Complete with sporty “chrome” wheels, this 2-seater truck with a roomy interior is perfect for your rough and touch backyard driving conditions. There is a real FM radio with built-in MP3 […] Continue reading →

Gardening Kits Seeds are super easy to get […] Continue reading →

I’m a huge fan of Radio Flyer. Their products are classics and have brought joy to kids for decades. The company just introduced a new super cool toy called, Cyclone, which provides new way for kids to zoom, spin and grin while they stay active and have fun. The Radio Flyer Cyclone is designed for kids ages 3-7 who must use their arms to rotate and propel the giant 16-inch wheels  into 360-degree spins, quick forward sprints and reverse rolls. This is a great introduction to exercise for young riders, the kid-powered ride-on encourages active, healthy outdoor play for hours […] Continue reading →
