Sorry for the lack of posting! πŸ™‚ This week, as most of you know, is NY Toy Fair, where I am hanging out to “get the deets” on all the best and most fabulous toys, games, and collectibles this year. I’m also meeting some bloggers face to face, which has been a fun and fantastic experience, yay! Just a few with some captions- I’ll give you more details later when the show is over πŸ™‚ Just to whet your appetite for what’s to come!

OK- so some of my thus-far favorites…

National Geographic Dino Dig by Uncle Milton

How great is this? Education meet super fun….and dinosaurs! This is a teacher’s dream! Homeschooling mommies, are you awake? LOL. I love this, I’m so happy that a great company like National Geographic has partnered with Uncle Milton to create these. You can dig, you can discover, you can excavate….you are your own paleontologist. Plus there is all the dino learning fun facts. LOVE.

La Dee Da Dolls- fashion, creativity, and travel inspired….need I say more???? Yes! I do!
These adorable dolls are APPROPRIATE- they are not the typical skanky and body disproportionate dolls that make me feel like they encourage eating disorders and body dysmorphic issues with small girls and tweens- while they have large heads, they don’t have big chests or things of that nature, and I appreciate that. Plus? Really pretty, fun, glittery and colorful which kids will love.

Loving the “Incredible Creatures” from Safari LTD- these super size versions are life life, educational, affordable fun. Check out the flying squirrel!

This is the Madame Alexander soft “Christopher Robin” Winnie the Pooh soft doll. I melted when I saw him! He has yellow soft, fluffy hair, and has an appliqued Pooh Bear on his shirt. His white socks and brown Mary Janes will call to mind all the Pooh Bear stories you read as a child.

Of course, everyone’s favorite spud had a Birthday- Mr. Potato turned 60! Mr. and Mrs. Pototo head are happily married, and the birthday party was divine, dears! πŸ™‚
Hasbro, makers of Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, had a great party to celebrate this milestone. Of course, there were tons of other debuts as well- but you will have to stay tuned for those.

Oh yeah! And don’t forget, Grace from Blessed Elements is hanging out with me this week. Everyone say hi to Grace! LOL.

Happy Valentines Day!
