There comes a time in every child’s life in this family when they are right into trains and planes and cars – basically anything with an engine. For at least one child (the husband), this fascination has never actually ended. And the littler boys have all had a Thomas the Tank Engine phase. We’re sticking […]
I’ve had a great year being a Fisher-Price blogger. I’ll be totally honest – I really wanted to sign up for this Mom Central Canada campaign because of Charlie being such a new baby last year at this time, and it seemed like it would be nice to treat him to some of their baby […]

So I am already anticipating our upcoming toy purchases for the kids. What would they like? What do I think they […]
At the beginning of May, the weather was sunny but cool. I remember this one particular afternoon. A cold wind blew across the playground and right into the baby’s face. Ugh. I thought, forget this, we’re going home to play inside (I’m not going to talk about how much whining and foot stomping took place […]

We’re getting close to the end of the 30 Days of Play. Every day, after school, the (older) kids want to know what the challenge is. It feels a bit like the Amazing Race, or Mission Impossible. “Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build an Animal Cafe!” And, literally, they run […]
If you’ve got a baby shower or a birthday party to buy for in the near future, you may be interested to learn that Fisher-Price has just released eleven coupons providing you with up to $90 in savings from baby gear to bigger kid toys as part of their Celebrate and Save promotion. You can […]
I’m cracking my knuckles, limbering up my arms. Okay, I’m lying. But I hope the boys are fit and ready. Today’s the day the LEGO® DUPLO® 30 Days of Play Challenge starts. From today (February 27th) to April 10th, Today’s Parent is hosting the LEGO® DUPLO® challenge, and we’re ready, with brand new kits of […]
