We’re easily impressed by the classics…love Madeline and Dr Seuss….but it’s difficult to impress us with something new. So we were quite excited after reading Press Here by the brilliant Herve Tullet. It’s an imaginative book that makes the simple task of pressing a yellow dot a fun adventure that involves the parent and the reader. The dot grows, disappears, and even multiplies…and causes smiles and giggles now matter how many times we read it. Even our two year old loves counting the dots and shaking the pages. We’ll be honest…when we first glanced at it we thought we’d read it once and be done…not a chance in this house. It’s become a true classic and a keeper already, destined to be passed on dog-eared to the grandkids someday. Who would have thought that a yellow dot could be so entertaining? Total page turner.
When shopping for shoes we always have to keep in mind what type of fun we’ll be having when we’re wearing them…jumping in mud puddles, walking on the beach…camping with the family…even shopping with mommy. The new Adventure line from Celeb Baby Clothes fave Pediped fits all our criteria for perfect summer shoes. We went for their Amazon in a bright shade of purple. Same flexibility as all their other comfy shoes and this line uses eco friendly materials too. Pediped’s claim that they are water safe, ready for mud stains and beach fun is totally true, as we tested them out on the sands and theme parks of Florida. Our tot’s Amazons got tossed in the washer more often than we wanted, but came out fine each time…looking good as new we might add. We definitely put these Adventure shoes to the test.
New clothes are like new friends…you get excited at the thought of them…love taking them out for coffee and you can never have enough, right? Well, depends on the clothes, and if they are from Olive’s Friend Pop, then you’ll be set. Gorgeous play clothes with a vintage flare and original details …Olive’s Friend Pop is by far the most impressive clothing line we’ve reviewed in along time. Love the lined skirts with floral lining and the pink collared dress that ties in the back. Very playful and girly but in a sophisticated and classic way. Durable enough for the playground and pretty enough for birthday soirees. What more do you need?
