What I love about their costumes is the selection as well as the durability. I cannot think of a character my son loves that I cannot find in their selections. There was Scooby, Mario, Pokemon, even Wubzzy! Their costumes fit real well and stay done up wonderfully. The Super Why costume my son wore last Halloween stayed together with one strip of velcro beautifully! I even layered him under the costume and stretched to velcro it and it held all night! And the prices and sales are great. They even have deals over at their EBAY site!
I was sent an assortment of Tig Tagz ID Wristbands to review and I am impressed! My son loved the designs and they are waterproof, yet easy to take off. I have been stuck with bands that my son may want off and rip and pull and for the life of me, can not get off without scissors. How they can make it so simple, yet keep the quality is amazing for me.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I had to post because although it is not the funniest of things my toddler son does a lot, it made me chuckle!
Yesterday, I pick him up from Daycare and he is very excited to show me his “Art”. They had been working on the Number 3 and made a Tree with 3 Apples in it and at 3 years old, my son just HAD to include……
I was very fortunate to win 4 tickets to Yo Gabba Gabba LIVE here in Seattle at the Beautiful Paramount Theatre. I won these tickets from Blog: Lilac City Momma. I took a friend and her almost 4year old and my 3 1/2 year old son. Both boys were so excited all week, but I knew and warned my friend that he will FREAK out once there and act terrified. On the way there he asked to go home..that’s when I knew I would not be spared of his freak out. I wanted pictures as we walked in and he was crying and I had to pry him off my shoulder, but got it(we are on the right)…
However, I knew that as always it would be a matter of time before he starts PEEKING and realizes he can have fun and I caught him PEEKING…
|Getting braver..he is off my lap
See the tongue sticking out above? He is playing along with the song! Then they had a break. I figured I needed a way to remove the hands well away from the eyes as the show is now half over, so what works best in that situation? Super Why App……..
That did it! He was dancing and grooving…
..and we replayed the photo shoot afterall..OK, so he has his eyes closed, but he had loved the show and even bought a Brobee doll after this photo was taken (Oh and for those wondering what has happened to Bizmarke all these years..he is bustin’ some killer toddler rap at Yo Gabba Gabba shows in Seattle :-)….
Thank you Lilac City Momma and Paramount for a wonderful day!
OK, it is not a product per say but a website. If you have never heard of Starfall.com and have toddlers to elementary age children you are missing one of the best online sites ever. My mom actually introduced my 3 1/2 year old to this site a little over a year ago as she is a teacher and it is the only accessible site she allows her students on during down time in classroom computer time.
My son’s favorite right now is on the Homescreen (shown above) called Earth Day (on right with all the other Holidays). He has to use the mouse and now is real good at it because of this game to pick up trash around the river. He has to sort Cans into the can basket, Plastic to plastic basket and paper to paper basket. As he cleans, animals come out (he clears all bottles from river, fish start swimming, etc..) Once the whole area is clean he’ll just sit and watch the animals moving around.
The instruction buttons are big and simple..arrow to go to next page will flash and is large so he does not have to try and hold the mouse in such a narrow space. I can let him go freely on this site and he is now able to navigate all over. You can see how simply the Homescreen is organized so you know the correct level to enter into depending on age or ability of your child. The music section is great too! This is a great way to familiarize your toddler with using a computer and navigate with the mouse because Let’s Face It, they need to by Kindergarten!
Ages: I would say 2 1/2-8 maybe older!
Last week I said I would start posting my son & I’s Friday Filed Trip. I am off all day on Fridays and it is just my 3 year old and I and since I am homeschooling to back up the education he gets at daycare with the Teach My Preschooler at home, I want to make Friday a day off of lessons and have an outing or experience to teach my son a life lesson beyond the books.
So, this Friday I had planned on grocery shopping and was thinking of how I may incorporate the trip to the grocery store into a lesson when my husband called to say his Dad’s Lab’s (dog) ear had filled with another Hematoma. As a Veterinary Technician (in the past-I now work in human medicine) I know that since the hematoma surgery fails everytime, that if I go over and drain it and have him use the cleaner & meds and hot pack where I drain, that it seems to last for about 8-10 months and seems like it comes back again in a year or so. And he cannot afford the $600 ear surgery. So, off my son and I went with Betadine, syringes, and to pick up her meds at the vet.
Lesson of the day: Compassion!
When I stopped to buy more Betadine, I had my son pick out special treats for Daisy. He made his choice and proudly carried them to checkout. I handed him the bag to carry to the car. The ride their, I explained what we were doing to make Daisy’s sore on her ear feel better and mommy is trained to do it. When we got there, Anthony’s job was to feed her treats and talk nice and tell her it is OK. Afterwards, we all praised Daisy and I handed Anthony a ball and told him to go outside and play fetch to reward her being such a good girl. He gladly did that! So, not an ideal Friday scenario, but a lesson in compassion and praise nonetheless!
