Father’s Day Gifts - Five Kid's Toys that Dad Would Love for Father’s Day


Is anyone else amazed by the toys that are out there? Sometimes I look at the toys and ask myself, is this really for kids?

When I had my first child, I saw the mini motorized cars for kids. I immediately wanted one. To tell the truth, sometimes my children end up with certain toys because I want it so badly (yes, my sons have a mini motorized fire truck). Is this wrong? I don’t think so. What’s the point of having kids if you can’t relive your childhood a little bit (just more responsibly).

Well, here are some toys that I know daddies all over the world would love to play with. More...

Dreaming about flying to an exotic new place? Thinking about vacations made me think about the difficulties of traveling on airplanes with children.

Ever try to lug the usual baby/toddler stroller along with your suitcases in your travels to say Florida? The Bahamas? Italy? How about across the planet to say Tokyo or Australia? Let's face it, strollers are a travel pain in the you know what.

Here's how I see it. Vacations - they really are a love hate relationship especially when you have kids. You love getting away from your everyday life. Getting to your destination is the true problem.

Decorating Kid's Rooms – HotSpotMama's Product Recommendations


Last summer, I wanted to redecorate my son’s room. I just assumed that I would paint the room. Maybe stencil it if I had enough courage. While I was searching for bedroom furniture, I came across wall murals for kids rooms. You put it up just like you would wall paper. What a great alternative to just painting. I thought that was pretty much the coolest thing I had seen. Until I came across self-adhesive wall decals made by Blik.

Spend Less Time Cleaning: Hotspotmama's Favorite Products


I was never a neat person before I had kids but for some reason now I am obsessed with it. Not that you could tell if you walk in my house. But that's not my fault. I blame my two boys. Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. That's what I do. I can have a room completely clean and they could destroy it in less than 10 minutes. I guess you could say they have a gift.

Does anyone else have a child that just loves arts and crafts? I just can not keep up with my older son’s demand for it. I also can not keep up with the clean up. I have red acrylic paint stuck in the grout of my kitchen floor.

Children and Safety Products: Hot Spot Mama's Recommendations


One thing all parents have in common is that we are all concerned about the safety of our kids. That's why there was so much excitement around the round baby car seat featured on last week's episode of American Inventor. So I decided to do a posting about two other creative products that may help in protecting our kids. The first one is a child safety alarm. I've got two young boys so this one is of particular interest to me.

Safety 1st makes the In-Reach Child Tracking System. It can monitor how far your child goes in any location; the mall, the park or even your own backyard.

Everyone is Talking About the New Round Car Seat. What's Your Take?


It's amazing how many people have visited this site specifically because we had a photo of the round baby car seat. And the chatter about it is equally amazing. If you saw the show, you saw that it uses basic physics to work against the forces of a car accident. The baby seat rocks - helping protect the baby inside. Will it work? Who knows. But congrats to the judges for moving this one forward to see if this show can actually be used to "improve" a product concept. If this one can work... it could be huge.
