M&M's make friends or just great party treats

I looked on my recent purchase of M&M's and saw that they offer you the option to personalize your m&ms with either a message or a photo. They recommend it to use it for business favors, Valentine's day, teacher gifts and of course ( where my ears perked up) children's party favors! Available starting at $16.99 for one bag of M&M's with a message. The price gets better if you order more bags. Very cute and great memento from your party that everyone will talk about. Order directly from My M&M's.

Tommee Tippee is in America!

Tommee Tippee baby feeding products are THE brand in England. It is basically comparable to our version of Playtex or First Years products in the USA. After having lived in London, our house if full of their products and they are very good and BPA free. They are available at Toys R Us exclusively at the moment...which quite frankly, Toys R Us is really impressing me with a few of their exclusivity agreements with some 'cutting edge brands', such as Tommee Tippee and Handysitt, lately.

Tuesday, January 5, 2010 a bib kinda way

Having just returned from abroad, I was reminded of the baby kerchief or bandana bibs that many a European tot,sports around their neck. European parents have been using these for ages because they are a multifuctioning accessory. They can be used as a bib, a drool or spit catcher, a scarf or just a stylish splash of color to liven up an outfit. So, I decided to scour the web to see if it has arrived stateside and voila!
Eco Modern Baby has some kerchief bibs that are made from cool mod fabrics with plush backing and a snap closure at the neck. It is made in the USA from organic fabric. $18.
Bazzle Baby has a wide selection of cotton stylish prints on their bandabibs. They feature a velcro close and have a flannel backing. $12.
