I have always believed in teaching a child at least one musical instrument if you can. Nicoli likes the piano, every time we are in the store he wants to push the keys and bob his head to it. He isn’t hard on them, he’s gentle like one should be. I was given the chance to pick out anything in a catalog and I couldn’t think of anything besides the Digital Piano that reminded me so much of the Grand Piano. Yes, he got a Baby Grand Digital Piano. I was worried it would be too small but it is the perfect size and he looks adorable sitting up on the bench as he pushes the keys.

Note: It is really easy to put together. You’ll have it up and ready within seconds of taking it out of the box.

I know not all of us can afford to get our child an instrument or in music classes.  Honestly even a small recorder costs less than $5 over at the Dollar Store. As a child I wanted to play the clarinet but we couldn’t afford it so I missed out on that. I would also discover the piano but we lived too far away from the lady that wanted to teach me. I have always loved the sound of music but haven’t been able to play it. This is probably why when my kids have shown an interest I have always tried my best to get them into it.

If you or your child has ever loved My Little Pony you will surely love the new girls that have started popping up…the Equestria Girls. In the My Little Pony show they pony has stepped through this magical mirror and it brought them to a new dimension creating these little girls, it’s the same ponies but in human form. I must have missed this episode but my daughter didn’t and she has wanted them ever since. I’ve only just began seeing them hit the stores. There are six Equestria Girls, we were lucky to be able to review the Rainbow Dash. But for those that do not know there are: Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Applejack, Rarity and Pinkie Pie.

My Little Pony Equestria

Rainbow Dash is a baby blue skin color and her hair is a rainbow of colors and she is dressed to be athletic and always on the run. Ours came complete with an outfit (2), shoes (2 pairs), hair clip for your child, a clip for her, a backpack, wings, jewelry for Rainbow Dash and a brush.  Oh and a little sticker sheet to decorate with. The Rainbow Dash feature that I liked best as a mom is the fact she is bendable. The knees, hips, elbows, etc all move, it is unlike your typical Barbie doll which I like.  I know I kept telling my daughter there were no doll My Little Ponies, boy was I wrong and it is good because these really are cute and if you know the ponies they really do match the characters/looks of each.  As  you can see she absolutely loved her Rainbow Dash.

How to Train Your Dragon Movie & Toys

March 26, 2010 By · 2 Comments

How many of you will be hitting up the movie theaters this weekend to go see, “How to Train a Dragon”? I wasn’t really sure about this movie when I first started hearing about it because I hadn’t watched any of the previews and just kept hearing the kids talking. Now it only sounded like something really cheesy to me and it hadn’t been made into a cartoon so didn’t sound like anything exciting. That is until the hubby and I watched a movie recently and got to see one of the previews for “How To Train a Dragon.” It looks really cute and he (and the kids) love dragons and swords so this would definitely be a good one for them. I liked that it didn’t look like your typical cartoon and I loved the theme of it.

How to Train Your Dragon Movie:
A young teenage Viking is learning to hunt dragons but suddenly meets one face to face and learns they are nice. He asks if anyone has trained them and is basically laughed out of the place but decides to try anyways. Can he teach this dragon to be friendly? Can he teach his people they don’t have to fight them?

Of course everyone knows that with one hot movie coming out kids are going to be begging for the books, coloring books, posters, toys, etc. This is perfect time since Easter is only a week, these would make for some great basket fillers. Now they even have the Netflix series.

I already have a few asking for the books and two asking for the toys. Little A wants any of the toys, his sister wants the stuffed dragon. It really is cute.

A Breastfeeding Doll for Kids

August 5, 2009 By · No Comments

Oh my goodness, I couldn’t believe the trend hitting the internet today so I looked it up and sure enough there is an actual “Breastfeeding Doll” for kids. Yes, now your daughter can breastfeed a baby doll just like mommy. While I may have breastfed my four kids, I’m not okay with my daughter pretending to breastfeed a doll. Am I wrong here?

A Spanish toymaker by the name of Berjuan has created Bebe Gloton (the first ever breastfeeding doll). There is a little nursing bra you would put over your daughter that has a flower where her nipple would be. When the baby starts to cry simply place the baby up to the bra and she begins nursing and making sounds such as suck suck (sounds) and once she’s done burp it by hitting it on the chest. I don’t know there is just something about seeing this on a younger child that makes breastfeeding look bad. Breastfeeding is natural, but not on a 7 year old.

I won’t lie, the doll itself without the whole creepy breastfeeding part is very cute and everything else would be great if they left that out. Replace the breast and give the baby a bottle, not my 6-year-old’s boob. Ikkk. Maybe give the baby a bottle and a sling in replacement for the breastfeeding and the nursing bra.

How do you feel? Would you by this doll for your young girl? I’m definitely keeping this post away from BabyGirl and BalletGirl as they’d love it because it is different. I’d be scared of the thing and would not want to see them doing it. Yes I realize this goes against all those that breastfeed but then again so does this doll.

By the way here are a few that thought Bebe Gloton was also creepy:

NJ.com says it’s a ‘sucky’ Idea. I must agree.
