Bath time is messy business. Between the water, toys, bubbles and tired kids, there often ends up being more water on the floor than in the tub! That’s why we love the water-conserving, kid-friendly shower wands from Rubber Duckie & Friends.
Music is a surefire way to cure a toddler tantrum, soothe a cranky newborn or turn your preschooler’s frown upside down! You could almost say that music is magic. Which is why this Cinderella Fashion Bluetooth Speaker by eKids is so appropriate!
In an adult-sized world, kids love having their own, kid-sized furniture. But as parents, we don’t want to spend adult-sized prices on kid-sized pieces that won’t fit our kids for more than a year or two. That’s why we love the affordable and customizable children’s furniture from Delta.
Babies grow so fast, it’s not practical to buy them shoes (and really, for all intents and purposes, babies don’t really need shoes). However, for fancy occasions, it’s fun to dress your little one in special shoes — or skip the kicks in favor of some Trumpette socks!

Toddlers are the perfect mix of sugary sweetness and total insanity. They give us something to live for and exhaust us to the bone at the exact same time. Toddlers are also very fun to shop for during the holidays. Their clothing choices are the cutest and they really love to get new toys. Toddlers aren’t asking for laptops or smart phones. They just want to play all day. Don’t give the average, superstore type gift. Here are some incredible ideas for any toddler on your list this year that will fire up their imaginations and keep the sweet and insane fun going.
Children, whether infants or teenagers, are always learning. As parents, we all want to give our children every opportunity we can to explore, create, and expand their minds. The holidays are a time for fun, and we know that learning should be fun as well. Give gifts to the children in your life that encourage learning. There are so many amazing products for kids that spark their imagination and foster a love for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). We think gifts like these are especially great to give to someone else’s child because not only will the child get so much out of whatever you choose, the parents will be happy with you as well. Everyone is happy and kids are learning while they play. These gifts are a win all around!
You know your child is having trouble saying the “s” sound. They might even be getting therapy at school or through a clinic.
Speech therapists love it when parents practice at home. It will increase your child’s progress so much, by helping in two ways. The first is carryover. Your speech therapist might have your kiddo saying “s” perfectly in the session – but only YOU can help them carry it over in the home. And that’s what you and the therapist want – to see progress with that sound in every area of your child’s life. The second is muscle memory. Your child has probably been saying the sound wrong long enough that their muscles want to say it that way automatically even if they have learned the correct way to say it.
But how do you help? Here are three easy activities to help practice that tricky “s”. Your kiddo might not even know that they’re working!
“Stocking stuffers” are notorious for being cheap, throwaway items that our kids end up overlooking and not really wanting, needing or using. This year, stuff your kids’ stockings with practical, functional, and fun products they’ll actually want to use!
