Cool Diaper Bags for Dad


This may not be the diaper bag I choose for myself, but this is one I would definitely consider for my husband (and many of my mom friends). When my kids were younger, they didn't have as many choices for dads (or maybe I was just too darn tired to look on theInternet for them). read more »

Roman Arch Kit - A Geometric Wooden Puzzle: Product Review


We went to a children's museum a couple of months ago and it had a roman arch puzzle. If you assembled all the wood pieces together correctly, it could support itself with out any help (like from nails). My kids spent quite a while on it. It was really amazing when it was completed. So when I saw this Roman Arch wooden puzzle available from Edmund Scientific, I thought what a great puzzle for my kids. read more »

The Dino Puzzle Cookie Cutter is a cut above the rest of the cookie cutters out there because it s also a puzzle. read more »

Ice Cream Flavored Toothpaste


Banilla BlingBanilla BlingI took my boys to the dentist on Monday. Before the dentist cleaned each child's teeth, he asked what flavor he liked. My oldest got his teeth cleaned with bubble gum flavored toothpaste. My youngest got his teeth cleaned with marshmallow flavored toothpaste. This experience left me wondering why there weren't more flavored toothpastes being sold. We've seen bubble gum flavored toothpaste at the stores before but never marshmallow.

So, I'm walking out of the dentist office and I stop at the desk to make sure that my insurance information is good when I see tubes of weird looking toothpaste on the check out desk. It looks weird because I've never seen this toothpaste in the stores before. I look closer and pick up the first one; it says it vanilla ice cream flavored. read more »

TVs for your Big Kid and Little Kid


Back in June, I wrote an article about about adorable plush animal TVs titled, Animals,TVs and Humidifiers - HotSpotMama Recommendations. The company that made the plush animal TVs, Hannspree, has come out with some new stuff worth checking out. Hannspree has a TV for your big kid (yes, I am talking about adults) and your little kid.

I think its safe to say that Hannspree easily makes over 100 TVs. To give you an example of the ones they make, here are a few (some old and some new): read more »

Best Present for New Parents: Phone and Video Baby Monitor Combo


Back in September, I wrote an article called "Coolest Combo: Phone and Video Baby Monitor - HotSpotMama Find". I really loved this product when I found. I still love it - so much that I decided to repeat myself.

Holidays are coming up fast. This has got to be one of the best presents for new parents. I was walking through two of large baby stores today and came to a realization, this is still a brilliant product There is nothing else out there that's similar. Here's my article from September:

Looking for a great video baby monitor?

When I had my first baby (who is now 5 years old), we bought a video baby monitor. We thought it was the coolest thing that we could watch our child while he was sleeping without him seeing us. The problem was that it was too big and a bit too bright. The screen had to be about four inches wide. So when we went to bed and left the monitor on (yes, like a typical first time mom), it pretty much lit up our entire room. Also, it was a huge eyesore on my dresser. Luckily, you can avoid all that now. read more »

Looking for a Bike and Stroller Combo - The TrioBike


TrioBike has come up with a three in one carrier bike. Its a regular bicycle, a carrier bike and a stroller.

Imagine taking your two kids for a bike ride in bike that has a stroller that attaches to it. After your done with your bike ride (because its pretty exhausting biking up a hill with two kids), you detach the stroller from the bike and then just push the stroller. Or maybe, you'll drop the kids off with your husband and finish that bike ride by your self, so you detach the stroller and continue biking with just the bike. Pretty cool huh? TrioBike thinks so. read more »

Inflatable Haunted House as PlayHouse


Inflatable Haunted HouseInflatable Haunted HouseI love Halloween. Seriously, as a kid, what is better than knocking at someone's door and having someone hand you candy. When my oldest son was two years old, he got the hang of trick-or-treating a little too quickly. At the age of one, my youngest child had more candy from trick-or-treating than I ate the first 20 years of my life (no, he didn't eat all of the candy, he just accumulated it). read more »

I love the decorations too. I came across this inflatable haunted house that looks like a giant playhouse. Its better than all those other inflatables they have out for Halloween because it does more than just sits there looking spooky. You can walk (or run) through it.

Kids Sick? Give them Lollipops - HotSpotMama Find


It finally feels like its fall in the Northeast. I'm seeing leaves fall and kids starting to cough. I thought of this article I wrote back during the summer and thought it was very appropriate right now. Hope it makes your winter a little easier. Here it is. ..

If candy wasn’t so bad for my kids, I would let them consume it 24/7. Nothing seems to quiet a whinning child as quickly and effectively as candy. Now imagine your child sick at home and whinning and having the amazing ability to say, “Hey, I’ve got a great idea, why don’t you have a lollipop?” Your child will look at you with questioning eyes. Is it a trick?

Chopsticks for Kids


ChopStick KidsChopStick KidsI grew up using chopsticks. Personally, there isn't a type of Asian food that I don't like (ok - so there really isn't any ethnic food I don't like). In this day and age where Chinese food restaurants are as common as the local pizza shop, all kids should get to know how to use chopsticks. My kids have a couple of pairs of them and when we go to restaurants, the wait staff usually makes their own version of children's chopsticks. Here are couple I've found for the kids (and grownups).

Adorable Animal Backpacks


frogfrogBackpacks were always a big hit at my house. Both my boys love wearing them. I guess it makes them feel like big kids.

I think these pictures say it all. Is it possible for someone to make a cuter backpack? (I would love to see a link if these are not the cutest ones you've seen). read more »

Keyboards for Little People


MiniKeyBoardMiniKeyBoardThese days, I am constantly on the computer and my wrist are killing me. In this day and age, I'm not the only one on the computer. So are both my boys. Both my kids started using the computer when they turned three years old.

If adults have so many problems because they use the computer so much, I can't imagine how difficult and painful it must be for our kids (and anyone who is smaller than the average adult) to use an adult sized computer keyboard. Thank goodness other people are on the same wavelength and have created interesting solutions... many inventors are ahead of me on this one.

Here are a bunch of the keyboards I have found that fit little people hands. read more »
