Happy Holidays!

Every year I struggle with what items to include in my gift guide – I could include 50 items and still think of other great ones! This year I hand picked our sponsors and reached out to most of them because I believed in their products and appreciated the value in them. We have moved away from toys that just get tossed aside and prefer products that can give you an experience. I have tried every single product below and every single one is high quality and worth gifting for the holidays. You’ll notice most of these are educational which is the type of gifts we tend to have in our household. Many of these are also great to gift to classrooms as well!


Makey Makey

Makey Makey is geared for kids ages 8+ and is a phenomenal hands on simple engineering kit for kids to get creative with. It turns normal everyday objects like bananas or even cardboard into a touchpad for computer games and apps! Thousands of possibilities are only limited by your creativity and willingness to come up with something new!



Laser X Laser TagAs a mom of 2 boys (ages 7 & 9) sometimes you come across a product SO cool the entire family is dying to play it. The Laser X Laser Tag system is as COOL as it looks and we’ve got it on our wish list to buy several more sets! Play laser tag at anytime of the day or night from up to 200 feet away!  Get your kids (and parents!) up off the couch and running around looking for the best strategy. You won’t want to miss out!

Fisher Price Code-a-pillar STEM Kids Toy

I absolutely LOVE Fisher Price’s Code-a-pillar for toddlers and preschoolers.

It’s very durable and absolutely a fantastic fun learning toy for kids.
