My little one will be 8 months tomorrow and he loves to pull himself up on things. Which toy do you think he’d get more use out of?
Goal : family bike rides with 2 parents, 1 yo & 3 yo through flat, paved suburbia Question: what is the best trailer bike for the 3yo? Context: the 3 yo currently uses a balance bike, but can't yet do long distances nor is he tall enough to cross streets & be seen by drivers. We would like him to contribute (pedal) rather than just tag along. We would prefer the option to easily ... More
Asking from a 1st time parent to a toddler who’s into the holidays now & is very excited about Christmas. I know each family has their “traditions”. I’m just curious, besides Santa filling up the stockings with little gifts, can he bring presents to Dad, Mom & other adults too? I didn’t grew up here in the US, I grew up in Asia (Philippines), we do love Christmas but more as being Catho... More
I have a 10 year old step son and an 18 month old daughter and I’m not sure how to make gifting fair between the two. Our 10 year old put a list together and all of his items are anywhere from $70-$300!!! He doesn’t play with any toys and only likes video games!! Ugh I blame my husband for that one. At this age do you not worry about making sure they each get the same amount in dollar wise or ... More
My son(2years old) likes to dump all of his toys all over his floor everyday and "play with them". I have him help me clean up and sometimes it goes well and other it goes horribly wrong like today. I will give him 2 toys, legos and blocks, to put away and today he literally threw a major fit. I never know when to give up trying or how long to let him throw a fit. Sometimes I try to m... More

My daughter will be two in October and she is bored with all of her toys. Her water table holds her interest for maybe 20 minutes. She no longer cares about her sand box. She's lost interest in playing with chalk. She might kick a ball around for 10 minutes but there's not much else she wants to do. She doesn't want to ride her bike. She hasn't touched her indoor toys for month... More
Because I'm fed up picking up my baby's toys or tripping over them for the millionth time. 😖
Has anybody here subscribed any monthly book clubs for kids? Is it worth it? I found a review for some here... https://www.cratejoy.com/box-insider/kids-book-boxes/ I know there are others too. I am thinking of subscribing to one for my almost 6yo daughter.
My girls are 3 and 4. I am just looking for some new ideas that I might not have used yet to give them something different. Wanted to see if there are some toys or trinkets I haven’t seen yet or, some hacks that other parents use to entertain kids quietly at these ages while having to sit still for extended periods of time.
My friend is having a baptism for her baby; I’ve never been to a baptism, am I supposed to give a gift? If so, what? We don’t have the kind of relationship where I’d feel comfortable giving cash and my friend and her husband are not very religious, I think the baptism is more of a family tradition so I don’t think I should give a religious gift. I was thinking books but any ideas are welcome.
I’ve never done an Easter egg hunt as a kid or put one together. I see that most people put candy in the eggs for older kids. Ideas for 2 yr olds? I’ve gotten some suggestions like stickers, goldfish crackers, Cheerios, and stamps.. what else?
So my LO loves those squeezy bath toys that suck up and squirt out water, but even with trying to always get all the water out, they grow mold and are disgusting. I tried hot gluing the openings closed but my little mechanical engineer figured out how to get that off in a second. Any tips on how to keep them clean or close the holes up??
