Today, we’re sharing 5 fun ways to get kids into the spirit of giving, and we’re sure once they start, you’re going to have a hard time stopping them. Kids are naturally little elves! Read more
Some gifts are sweet for more than just the recipient – gifts that give back. ‘Tis the season of kindness and giving (shouldn’t every month be?), so today we’re showcasing products whose profits go to support charity! There are so many great causes in the world, and you might not be sure how you can help (especially when time and money are in short supply). So, if you have to buy something, why not choose a product with a purpose? The best thing about buying kid’s gifts that give back is that you can teach them an important lesson in kindness and empathy. Without further adieu, here are a dozen delightful kid’s gifts that benefit charity.
The holidays! Think about how many extra activities, events, and plans we fit in just one month! You even change the decorations in the house. Boxes full of glittery objects, twinkle lights, nutcrackers, and snow globes come out from storage and the house is transformed into a glowing wonderland! It’s kind of crazy, but of course in a good way because this is when you see your family the most and do things like a special holiday-themed photo shoot. The same as with decorating some people go over the top more than others. We took a look at families that took some really funny holiday photos. Some of them trying to be funny, some that didn’t know they looked kind of funny, and then there are the awkward ones. In the end, it makes for a great experience for us the viewer because all of these will make you laugh! Enjoy! Read more
You know your kids are smart, and you love to tell your friends about all the amazing things they can do. A little parental bragging time is totally normal.

Like putting your baby to bed in their crib only to find them playing on their floor 30 minutes later when you thought they were asleep. How did they get there? They couldn’t possibly be able to climb out of their crib all by themselves, could they? From the videos we found, we learned, yes they are little climbing monkeys with Houdini’s knack for escape. So how do you keep your baby Houdini in the crib? Hopefully, these tips help you from being surprised every day by their youthful jailbreaks! Read more
When you were a kid, did you spend hours looking through the big Christmas catalogs that everyone used to get? There were pages upon pages of toys that you wished so badly that you could get, all the while knowing that very few that you circled would be coming your way.

There are even some toys for sale right now that were invented in the 1920s! We looked at 25 of the most popular toys of all time and we’re sure some of your favorites from when you were a kid are still on some kid’s wish list this year.
