New spin on juice boxes is a healthy treat for kids. Give my niece a juice box and I can guarantee three things: 50 percent of the juice will end up on her shirt, 25 percent will end up on the floor, and the remaining amount will end up on me. Oh what I’d do for a no mess juice box that that can hold its own against a tiny three foot tall active tot. Enter the Tummy Tickler, a
Looking for an excellent educational toy? Take a ride on the alphabet train. With the VTech sit-to-stand alphabet train, Chilo is her own learning conductor. Thanks to its interactive activities, colorful two-sided learning blocks and grow-with-me features, the alphabet train ranks as one of my all time favorite toys. Here’s why: The toy is packed with learning tools. Each activity on the train is connected by motion sensors that are designed to teach kids about cause and effect. It includes

The Fisher Price Diamond rattle is one of Chilo’s favorite things Hey if an 18-carat sapphire and diamond ring is good enough for the Duchess of Cambridge, then there’s surely a ring that could satisfy an ever-growing princess. So in the spirit of the Royal wedding season, (and after I bought myself a beautiful Princess Diana knock off ring), I searched the web to find some bling fit for a pint-sized princess. It’s the only rock of its size that
So many toys, so little time She doesn’t accept just any old toy in her circle. For a toy to join Chilo’s clique, it must meet certain criteria. The toy has to entertain, challenge, make lots of noise, and most importantly be fun. New toys always undergo an intense inspection process: She’ll taste them, slam them, stand up on them, and flip them upside down. I’m new to the toy game but I can usually gauge what types of toys
