  • Time to Play: Saving Money in the New Year

    By Rachael Miller

  • Time to Play: Toys that Help Children Learn to Walk

    By Emily Vanek

    In my earlier post, I mentioned my youngest son struggles with Dyspraxia. He is delayed about a year across the board. He is 2 and a half now and just recently started walking. Some things that helped him were toys! We had used all of the standard walkers, the grocery carts and other toys designed to help kids walk but I found a few of Chewy's older brother's toys that ended up helping him the most. […]

  • Time to Play: Developing Fine Motor Skills

    By Emily Vanek

    My son is 2 and a half years old and has Dyspraxia (you can read more about dyspraxia and my sons other conditions on my blog). He has issues with his gross & fine motor planning and development.

  • Time to Play: Back to School 2010

    By Ofelia Almedina

    As a kid I was always excited about back to school. It was a thrill returning to the classroom with teachers and classmates. My birthday in September always felt extra-special, with textbook distribution happening around the same time. In middle school we spent more time in the hallways, racing from room to room. I noticed everyone else seemed taller, perhaps because of the October 31 cutoff date for registration. In high school I did well on the standardized college tests, and one of New Jersey's most prestigious schools even offered me a scholarship. My parents and teachers encouraged me to accept. Instead, I went to vocational school and got a job. […]

  • Time to Play: Beach Bum Baby Essentials

    By Tara Bucci

    It's that time of year again and families all over are heading to the beach. We head to the shore every weekend from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Yes, I confess, I'm a confirmed beach bum but have realized that heading to the beach with your baby is a lot more work than heading there with just your husband or significant other. Before heading to the sand with your little ones in tow, plan an agenda. Having all the essentials is a great way to make the day on the beach a happy and healthy one. First things first, make sure to lather your children with sunscreen about a half hour to an hour before you head out into the sun. This allows the sunscreen to penetrate the skin and begin to work. Applying every two hours after the first application is recommended by the professionals. Below is a list of my top five beach baby must haves to make your day at the beach a more enjoyable, relaxing and memorable one. […]

  • Time to Play: NYC Playground Summer Toys

    By Kimberly Coleman

    There is nothing quite like city playgrounds. They are an entirely different animal than the suburban playgrounds that I grew up on. There is a lot of craziness and chaos, but along with that comes a lot of fun for the kids. Since most city kids don't have backyards, city parks and playgrounds fill that role. This is where you will see the kids running and playing in order to release their pent-up energy from being cooped up inside the close quarters of home, school and such. It is also the place to see the hottest toys on display. Over the last week or so, I have been observing the warm-weather toys that the city kids are enjoying in addition to the slides, swings and jungle gyms. Below, are the top five: […]
