  • Farley and the Lost Bone

    Book ReviewsFarley and the Lost Bone

    Farley, the dog from the “For Better or For Worse” comic strip, is enjoying a beautiful spring day, when he remembers that he buried a nice juicy bone during the previous fall. Unfortunately, he cannot remember where. He starts digging in Elly’s newly planted flowerbed but doesn’t find it and gets chased away. Then, he tries a couple of other spots in the yard with no success and is scolded by the other family members. Feeling sad, Farley heads to his special “alone spot.” Well guess what? His special spot is exactly where he buried his bone, and he settles down in the plush green…

  • Glow Fusion Bubble Solution

    Real ReviewsGlow Fusion Bubble Solution

    I received the Glow Fusion Bubble Solution from Time to Play the week of Christmas. What a perfect stocking stuffer for my 9 year old daughter! These awesome bubbles come in a black box with bright orange writing which makes them look awesome from the beginning (in our opinion). Right after Christmas, my daughter got very ill and we are still trying to figure out the cause of her illness so it has been hospitals and doctors, and poking and prodding. She has been feeling a little better and was home this past weekend so we got the bubbles out!

  • The Basket Ball

    Book ReviewsThe Basket Ball

    Lulu loved to do all “girly” activities such as dress-up and playing with her dolls, but she loved playing basketball most of all. Unfortunately, the boys at school wouldn’t let her play with them. So she decided to host her own basket “ball” and invited girls from around the world to attend. Dozens of girls came in their frilly dresses and “high top heels,” and played like super stars. The “ball” was such a hit that they all decided to make it an annual event.

  • Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax

    Family Film ReviewsDr. Seuss’ The Lorax

    “I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees.” So says the Lorax (voiced by Danny DeVito) at the start of the animated movie named for him. As he speaks, the trees are only a memory in Thneed-Ville, a town where everything is artificial, from cars and flowers to houses and trees. Even fresh air is packaged and sold in plastic bottles, as O’Hare Air.

  • The Wonder Book

    Book ReviewsThe Wonder Book

    This collection of more than two dozen poems, short stories and random observations about life and childhood is by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, author of the “Cookie” series of life lessons. The selections cover a number of topics children often wonder about. They range from simple questions such as “Who left something under the tooth fairy’s pillow when she was little?” to irreverent musings like how to say “fart” in nine languages. There is also a clever poem entitled, “Prince Backwards,” in which you read from the last line to the top, among many other works.

  • Link-O

    Real ReviewsLink-O

    I love the game sequence; it has to be one of my favorite boards games. But it is not a game that I am able to play with the younger kids in the household, and I have always been looking for a game with the same idea but something they would understand. Link-O is a board game made by the same creator of sequence, but for children and not adults. Now don’t let that make you think as adults you can not enjoy this game, because that is not true.

  • Crayola Barbie Story Studio

    Real ReviewsCrayola Barbie Story Studio

    What we have here is the Crayola Barbie Story Studio and the happy recipient is my niece, Serenity. She is 6. Which is the perfect age for this product because the age range is from 6 to 15 years old! The Crayola Barbie Story Studio was so much fun because you’re provided with an On-line Story code inside that allows kids to easily morph a photo of themselves into a character, then create adventures. Kids print, color and bind story pages to create real storybooks.
