There are two camps of LEGO builders – those who keep the directions, and those who throw them out. I’m such a directions follower that I have LEGO instruction books for sets that have long been dismantled and incorporated into brick bins of the younger generations of our family, so needless to say when I […]
LEGOs, just about every person I know has, at one time in their life, played with these colorful simple interlocking blocks. People have been building automobiles, spaceships, monsters and even castles for over 60 years. Like many of you, I still have my LEGOs that I had as a child. An heirloom ready to hand down […]
Game Art by Matt Sainsbury is more than just a coffee table book. It’s a great way to inspire kids who may want to get into the world of game design, or truthfully, any form of art. It’s all about the vision and the process. The book begins with a preface reminding the reader that […]
1. You believe in science. Evolution? Check! Climate Change? Check! Space Exploration? Check! 2. You don’t feel the need to schedule every minute of your child’s day. You are a big believer of unorganized play. 3. You read to your child as much as possible. The benefits of reading to toddlers and little kids […]
I thought you guys might like to know a little more about what we’re doing to Kickstart the Kickstarter. As much as I’d love to pop some popcorn and watch the pledges roll in, there’s a lot of work to do.

I watched the whole thing (like actually watched it without also looking at my phone), and while I was optimistically […]
As I chose outfits for my Barbies and baby dolls, I longed for the day I would finally have a daughter to dress all in pink. Now that she’s here, I’d like to think I know better.
I was at an outdoor show on Saturday afternoon and there were three kids in front of me just absolutely rocking out in a way that no one but kids could. I left my 1-year-old at home expecting a different sort of vibe, but these parents knew exactly what they were doing. These kids had ear protection […]
Your kiddo is only gonna let you dress them for so long before they take their style down an adorably horrific path that you just can’t follow, which is why you MUST pepper your little’s wardrobe with at least a few quirky head-turning indie pieces that are so cute (and so you) that you think you just might cry.
You may have heard about the issues Disney’s been having with some of their Age of Ultron merchandising choices as of late. In case you missed it, the kids’ clothes that came out to promote the film were seriously lacking anything Black Widow. Marvel, we know you’re trying (at least we’d really REALLY like to […]
