Looking for a great way to spend Family Day this year? On February 18th, why not check out some of the great activities happening right here in our own backyards!
This weather has me craving blankets, hot chocolate, and all the chick flicks that a girl can handle. There’s just nothing better than nestling up under the covers and settling in for some relaxing entertainment! With that in mind, I’ve compiled my list of Top 5 Make-You-Laugh-Til-You-Cry Expectant Parent films. (Try and say that 3 times fast!)
What can we say? Santa’s been busy! But when he’s rushing around town this weekend searching for the perfect stuffing for your stockings, he’s looking to Fab Baby Gear!
We’ve got board books a-plenty; instill the love of reading early with these great choices from Chronicle! A personal favourite is In my Den. This heartfelt story of a family in hibernation features a finger puppet- perfect for holding the attention of your young reader.
Choose a developmental toy- one that helps small fingers learn to grasp, squeeze and pull. The Rich Frog Squeak-Easy’s can be lovable lifelong buddies.
Lamaze toys are all specifically designed with your child’s development in mind. High-Contrast colours, mixed textures and a variety of squeaks, crinkles and honks make for hours of entertainment. Bring one along on car rides, keep in the stroller, or leave at Grandma’s house.
The Wee Gallery art cards are a classic! Black and white, these cards help children learn the names of a variety of animals. Many parents frame these later for interesting art in the Big Boy or Big Girl room, and they look gorgeous!
A sure-fire hit, the Sensodot balls are squishable and bouncable! These textured toys are easy to grasp and oh-so-much fun to toss.
A good choice for Mom & Dad would certainly be any of the Rockabye CD collection. Lull your baby to a sound slumber with the dulcet tones of your favourite bands! Coldplay, the Beatles, Bob Marley- just a few of the choices available! These can be purchased online and at each of our Brick & Mortar locations.
