Some toys for kids make them want to get up and expend all of the insane amounts of energy they possess. Nerf blasters make everyone want to take up battle stations for a foam dart war. Of course, there are some toys that will quickly fade in fun as they can’t handle the rigamarole that kids put them through. More often than not, these types of toys end up being more fun for the parents than anything.
Have you ever come across an idea where you don’t know if they’re serious or not? It’s neat to see innovations where there’s some sort of advancement on a product that’s been around for years, but sometimes people just change things that already work, but very slightly, to see if people will bite. Of course, they can’t sell it for nearly the same markup, but the fact they have likely invested real money into a seemingly silly idea is always confusing.
Do you remember what it felt like when you were exposed to Star Wars for the first time? Does the first time watching it even stick out in your mind anymore, or is it more of a feeling that came from watching the movies over and over again? What we enjoyed growing up, we now have a chance to enjoy with the next generation of fans, as many of us now have or are starting to make families of their own.
Children are like a sponge when it comes to absorbing knowledge and learning, and you can be sure that they are also pretty avid followers of their parents. If you were to wear a pair of headphones many a time you head out for your morning jog, or would like to tune in to your favorite music with some privacy, chances are your little ones, too, would like to enjoy a pair of headphones by themselves. Well, there are not too many kid-friendly headphones out there in the market, which is why Onanoff have kicked off their BuddyPhones, which is part of the “Color Your Music” series.
When it comes to tablets for the little ones, you can be sure that the name LeapFrog would, well, leap into your mind, pardon the reference. They have, after all, rolled out their fair share of tablets in the past that target children, with a robustness to match, and the LeapFrog Epic is the latest model from them to hit the market, as it comes with special play and learning experiences that have been designed to adapt as a child grows up – in other words, to maximize the lifespan of the device.
Monkey see, monkey do, or so that is how it has been for quite a fair number of years already – or should I say, generations. Having said that, it is interesting to know that you do not have to purchase another iPad for your toddler simply because he or she sees you using yours, and wants one, too. VTech knows this, which is why they have come up with the InnoTab MAX tablet for children.
If you grew up in a forested area with not a lot to do around you, chances are you played amongst the trees. Sticks were wands, building materials, staffs, swords, and much more. Of course, if you did want to make a stick fort, you needed something to tie the sticks together to keep it from crashing down on you. Maybe you used long grass, yarn, or rubber bands, but all of those will weather and be impossible to find after a few months.
I don’t know about you, but some of us do happen to have a phobia of dolls, and horror films such as Chucky do not help the case, either. Well, if you have absolutely no qualms about living in a house that is full of dolls, and giving your little princess a new doll for any and every occasion, then chances are you would be pleased as punch to hear how VTech has introduced their all-new Baby Amaze range of toys. Such traditional baby role play has been given an injection of innovation, where one can play with a pair of exciting learning dolls and a 3-in-1 stroller.
If you were to sit down and think of all the ways things in your house can injure you, you likely wouldn’t get up again as you can experience everything from a paper cut to your ceiling falling on you. Should you decide to have children, all the ways you can get hurt will be on the forefront of your mind. Electrical outlets need to be sealed off, dangerous rooms should be not only closed, but locked, and any sharp tools must be out of reach. However, injuring yourself at home is inescapable, and that is especially the case for children.
