I have a few baby toys that are reserved for my youngest child to primarily play with on her own, but with four children aged seven and under I am always on the lookout for high quality baby toys that will also engage her older siblings. Toys that kids can play with alongside a younger sibling allow children to bond with the baby, while entertaining the youngest child! A toy that engages older siblings is more likely to grow with the baby – entertaining them for years instead of a few weeks or months. If you have an only child, these toys also tend to share more easily when friends come... Read Post

Busy Bodies in Busy Town

Busy Bodies in Busy Town

As soon as I saw the ALEX Jr. My Busy Town activity center, I fell in love! The bright colors, the insanely cute artwork, the endless activities… I knew the kids would love playing with it and discovering all its hidden treasures! We invited Julie’s super-cute friend, Aeden, over for a play date to try it out! The girls seamed to really enjoy all 5 sides of the busy town. Aeden loved playing peek-a-boo with the different people hiding behind the doors and Julie especially liked moving the rainbow colored beads through the curvy maze. It was definitely big enough for both girls to play with... Read Post
