Today’s youth will be required to know and employ certain skill sets beyond anything we’ve expected from previous generations. As such, it’s up to us as parents and teachers to provide fun ways to easily learn skills such as programming logic.
With that in mind, STEM Lab Games has created a new learning system for kids called Little Engineer that uses an augmented reality with interactive play to teach STEM concepts to children. This game is both creative and logic based so kids are able to exercise both sides of their brains. And while parents are encouraged to play along, the single player design allows kids to work independently, thus instilling stronger problem-solving skills that will be required of them for the rest of their lives.
We’ve been playing Little Engineer for a few weeks now, and we are quite impressed with its ability to not only teach problem solving, but the basic principles of programming while also incorporating STEM learning. Read on to learn more about this incredible new learning system.

Long gone are the days of baby registries that consisted of a stroller, a bassinet and some simple swaddles. Today, baby gear is innovative, modern and designed with a focus on quality, practicality, functionality, safety and style. And while it’s practical to receive a mountain of diapers at your baby shower, chances are they might not be the kind you plan on using for your baby. You might also find yourself swimming in piles of adorable newborn onesies, but what happens after your little one outgrows them in a month?
Babyhome is already well loved for bringing the most innovative products for babies to the market. Babyhome is all about functionality and safety. Their goal this year is to revolutionize the baby gear market. You probably think they’ve already accomplished this with their amazing products like the Wave Rocker and the Air Bassinet. Well, get ready, because they are about to offer their new premium stroller, Vida.
While moving across the country as a family unit may not be at the top of anyone’s “most fun things” list, sometimes it is mandatory, due to job relocation, changing family obligations, or military reassignment. We don’t guarantee that your move will be completely seamless, but with the following tips and tricks, it can at least take some of the burden off your plate.
If you’re expecting, then you are likely overwhelmed with the amount of baby products on the market. Truth be told, babies require very little. If you have breasts (or formula), diapers, wipes, a few pieces of clothing and a car seat, you have almost everything you need.
But why stop at the essentials, especially when there are so many cool baby items available that make life with a newborn a little easier. Today we’ll share a few things that we can’t imagine living without during the first few months with a new baby.
We all know the worry that comes with the birth of a new baby; and if you’re anything like us, you were amazed when your doctor gave you the green light to take your tiny human home. As if childbirth alone wasn’t enough to throw your emotions completely out of whack, now you find yourself completely stressed about your newborn’s growth, eating behaviors, and comfort and sleeping patterns.
The baby monitor you were gifted during a baby shower is great, except you can’t help but keep your eyes glued to the screen (or held to your ear) to make sure your baby is breathing, or wonder if she’s cold, or make sure that she doesn’t roll on her belly. There’s got to be a better way to monitor your baby that doesn’t require an all-nighter.
The Owlet Baby Care Vitals Monitor is the world’s first baby monitor product to combine a wearable monitor with a smartphone app that allows parents to check on baby’s vitals from down the hall, across town or across the globe.

If you’re pregnant with your second child, you may be wondering what life will be like once the new baby arrives. Will you be able to handle two children at once… and the house… and work? Will your new baby’s personality rock your world? Will your older child feel neglected? Having your second (or third or fourth) child is certainly an adjustment, but we’ve pulled together our best ideas to offer you 8 easy ways to engage your older child once the new baby arrives.
When designing your child’s nursery or big-kid room, there are only so many options. The big names in kid’s furniture all look the same (and can be a bit overpriced), while the less expensive (Swedish store with funny sounding named furniture) options are, well, a bit cheap.
Today we have the just-right option for you: new-to-the-US, Spanish-based Micuna.
If your baby is six months old (or older), you may be thinking that it’s time to start playing with solid foods, but where do you start?
While there are many healthy pre-made options available at your local grocer (organic included), homemade baby food is the way to go if you want to know exactly what is going into your baby’s mouth. Unfortunately for many new parents, the idea of making your own baby food is often just too daunting.
With that in mind, today we’re introducing an easier way to make your own baby food with the Baby Brezza Glass One Step Baby Food Maker. Not only does this baby food maker bring healthy homemade pureed food to your baby’s mouth in minutes, but its one-of-a-kind, patented features take all the hassle out of creating delicious, wholesome purees for your child by automatically blending food after steaming. It’s so easy, we’re wondering why we ever considered spending a dime on jarred baby food.
Traveling, whether solo or with family, brings with it memories and wonderful life experiences but it also brings some challenges.

Encourage your loved one to go out and explore the world with a great gift!
