An interesting gift is teaching a child how to use chopsticks easily with Marcus & Marcus’ Kid’s Chopsticks. These animal-themed chopsticks will help keep your chopsticks in line. The animal hinges are made of soft, food-grade and brightly colored silicone to add an element of fun to the dinner table.  Marcus & Marcus kid’s chopsticks are made of BPA-free, PVC-free and phthalate-free materials. These are really cute and so easy to use!

Games are usually a hit with kids of all ages! Here are some of our favorites from our friends at Blue Orange Games!

Less is more in this subtle card game. Group the cards in your hand by number and color to try canceling out their point values. Multiples of cards are scored as zero, so each number is only counted once. Trade cards while keeping a watchful eye on your opponents. Mind your strategy as you all reach for the goal of canceling out your hand and achieving the ultimate combo: ZERO! This one is fun for the whole family! I like that it is a fast-paced type of game.

Will you risk it all? Roll all 6 dice and win the number of points that match the big colored die. Decide to bank your points, or take a risk and roll again. Keep scoring as long as you have numbered dice that match the colored die. If nothing matches, forfeit all points won that round and try again next time! Take big risks with this fast and fun dice game! I had a blast playing this one!


Explore the lands and expand your kingdom! Each turn, connect a new domino to your existing kingdom, making sure that at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain type already in play. Build up your 5×5 grid as best you can, as the player with the richest lands takes it all! Game of the year winner!

If you have a little one who loves story-time this next one is a must-buy! This one is pretty cool and I wish I had one of these when my son was a little one! Introducing…Moonlite!

Moonlite was invented by former Google veteran Natalie Rebot when she was inspired by her daughter’s love of shadow play before bedtime.  Moonlite is a children’s storybook projector that attaches to almost any mobile phone and uses the flashlight function to project vibrant story images onto the ceiling or wall. It brings storybooks to life with a modern twist on traditional storytelling that both children and parents fall in love with. Her tech background helped her developed the product in the easiest form to bring to moms everywhere. It’s a story-time projector for your mobile phone! It’s easy to use and great for travel too! 
Moonlite is available in Target stores, across the country so look for it this holiday season. This is super easy to use and a lot of fun! I highly recommend this one for anyone with a little one!

 OgoSport’s Active + Creative Play Holiday Toys are at the top of my shopping list this year!

OgoSport Holiday 1

Check out the OgoMinton! It has all the thrill and challenge of Badminton but designed specifically for short range play. It’s smaller sized racket and stretchy ogosoft ball make it ideal for kids to play with indoors or as a travel toy for on-the-go fun. This is a lot of fun and I like that it is easy and safe to play indoors. Great for rainy days!

For the kids who enjoy active + constructive play, the OgoBILD POD is a kit that will inspire creative building for hours. With its connective tubes and interchangeable rubber balls, POD allows kids to design all sorts of flexible, moveable, and innovative structures. From creating geometric shapes and 3D objects that can bounce, to building forts to camp out in, kids will expand on their STEM skills with POD…and have a blast doing it!  I am really impressed with this one and highly recommend it for ages 6+.

There’s even something for the little ones!

Bolli Rattle 3

The Bolli Rattle will strengthen their sensory, fine motor, and hand-eye skills as they squish, roll, grab, chew, and shake this stretchy rattle ball. The open-play design is easy to grasp and teeth, the interior rattle is entertaining, and the material is stretchy, soft, and captivating. It comes in a rainbow of colors, is BPA free, dishwasher safe, and made of food safe silicone (safe for teething!).
