News Articles

My Grandpa just sent me a couple links to some news articles I'd like to pass on. The first is about our baby's First Foods, the second about the importance of The Family Meal. I found both very helpful and important. I hope you take the time to think about the important message in each of these.

Happy Holidays!

Outer Space Creations

Moolka has a great new design to their website and with it are several new toys that I'm falling for! Among them is this Super Cosmos set from Djeco that lets you create 3 different rocket/space ships from 16 wooden pieces. The suggested age for this is 4 and up and it sells for $22.49 (on sale) at Moolka.

Create a Garden Scene

Perfect for an older girl on your list! This little garden scene is made from pre-cut sheets of everything you need to create Billie Brindille's Garden from Djeco ($24.99 at Moolka). After it is complete it can be used as a decoration or a playscene. I used to love little craft sets when I was younger, but there was never anything like this! Moolka's age suggestion is 9 and up but you know your kids best. Happy Gardening!

This is the greatest building set a kid could ever ask for! ZinkoTek is an amazing open-ended building system that lets you design just about anything, your imagination is the limit. We were sent a set to review and my husband and son instantly set to work building a castle! The pieces are made out of heavy duty, multi-layer foam. They feel indestructible and can be used indoors or outdoors. They would make a perfect addition to your play room, or any room! I also highly recommend ZinkoTek for preschools and daycare centers! Even if you build the house, it can be so much a castle, school, puppet theater, store, the possibilities are endless! It's just open-ended all the way around. It would make the perfect "BIG" gift for your kids this Christmas! Check out more information here on the ZinkoTek website. They have a photo gallery and building instructions for things like robots, airplanes, and more.


I just love the bright, fun colors! My son and the little girl I tend have had so much fun playing in it! Thanks, ZinkoTek!
