Kids are Meant to be Heard and Not Just Seen with the VTech Kidi Star Karaoke Machine™!

I’ve never understood the deep discomfort that people have with karaoke, one of my favourite activities from my days before kids. Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose”. Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It”. I used to rock on Magic Mics from the Philippines and shoot for a perfect […]

Get Your Kids’ Brains to Connect with LeapFrog and VTech!

Back when I got ready for school after the summer break, it was flash cards and workbooks to get me back in the swing of things. I’m about to sound like my Dad, but—these kids don’t know how good they have it! While I didn’t need to walk miles […]

Getting Boredom in Order with the PLAYMOBIL Arctic Expedition Headquarters!

I think it’s time my four-year-old start reviewing his own toys. I apologise to Swerve PR, but I’ve struggled to write a review of PLAYMOBIL’s Arctic Expedition Headquarters, an elaborate playset designed to get kids’ imaginations running wild.

The 2017 100 — It’s Not WHAT You Do, It’s How You DO It.

Unless my life sees some major changes this year, 2017 may mark the last list of 100! It’s January 13th—I’ve spent nearly two weeks of my new year agonising over 100 items that matter enough to hit a list of goals and aspirations for the year ahead. And that’s a key difference […]

GIVEAWAY: A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 5 — Helping Kids Connect with VTech!

You don’t realize how little space you have until you become a parent. Now — my house is by no means puny: at 1000 square feet, I’ve been in Maasai huts a lot cozier, but we need to stay realistic about how much we can fit in our home. With a 2-year […]
