It's that time of year again when parents everywhere are tasked with finding the perfect gift for family and friends. For years I have been finding the hottest, coolest and smartest gifts and this year there are some really great ones!

 

Smart Toys

When looking for just the right toys for young children, LeapFrog has always got you covered. They are colourful, high quality and smart. LeapFrog toys teach colours, numbers and letters. Here are some of our favourites.

 

 

Scoop & Learn Ice Cream Cart

Toddlers and pre-schoolers will love pushing the ice cream cart around to hear fun learning songs while pretending to find new customers. When they insert an order card into the slot on top of the cash register, then build the customer’s order in the correct sequence to help build memory and sequencing skills.

 

Spin & Sing Alphabet Zoo™

Spin the interactive toy to learn about letter names and animal names and sounds, or sing along to fun songs. Three play modes. When the wheel stops, your child will hear either letter names and letter sounds or animal names and sounds.

 

Step and Learn Scout

Scout is a LeapFrog character that kids love! Step and Learn Scot has different learning modes introduce letters and numbers while encouraging pretend play and gross motor skills.

 

LeapFrog Epic™ Academy Edition 

The LeapFrog Epic Academy Edition has a kid-appropriate on-board learning content including 20 learning games that explore a range of subjects and skills and a free trial of LeapFrog Academy™

LeapFrog Academy™, is an interactive learning program for 3-6 year olds, the programs cover traditional school subjects with creativity, problem solving and social-emotional skills. 

The tablet also comes with the LeapFrog® Learning Library that includes hundreds of games, apps, videos and music and is kid-safe right out of the box, the LeapSearch web browser lets kids safely surf the Internet and parental controls allow you to set time limits, manage apps and service.

 

 

Smooshins

I love that this toy is creative and encourgaes patience, as kids have to wait for their surprise. Smooshins is a unique activity that brings the surprise and anticipation of “unboxing” to the activity aisle. Collect, customize and share with friends. You can mix and match accessories and make over 10,000 collectible combinations. Start with the Surprise Maker Kit, then pop, mix, squeeze, grow and SURPRISE! Make your Smooshin before bed and wake to a BIG surprise - your Smooshin will grow overnight!I 

Gifts For The Hard to Buy For

SodaStream

The SodaStream FIZZI is the newest sparkling water maker by SodaStream. It’s simple to use and turns tap water into sparkling water in seconds with the

touch of a button, and it is easy for kids to use too. It has a sleek and slimmer design that makes it very counter-top worthy. Just Fill - Fizzi - Flavour!

 

 

Nespresso

Nespresso​ created an integrated Festive Campaign with the collaboration of two artists - Craig and Karl, where customers are invited to revive memories of their childhood and enjoy its unforgettable tastes. - inspired by a candy universe.

 

The duo have injected their signature colours and patterns into both the Nespresso​ Limited Edition Variations coffees and a selection of unique accessories that make the perfect gifts for design and coffee aficionados. 

 

The holiday period is a time for unique experiences and the range of Nespresso

Limited Edition Variations Confetto coffees do not disappoint with their surprising

candy flavoured aromas combined with the highest quality Pure Arabica.

My favourite is the Variations Confetto Snowball, it tastes just like the coconut and vanilla treat.

Give As A Family

Cuso International 

As a family we make a point of giving during the holiday season as a family and on this Giving Tuesday our contribution will be directed towards the brand new Cuso CAN Fund, which supports Cuso International’s highest priority projects around the world. One of these life-changing projects will improve health care for vulnerable moms and babies in Ethiopia – a country that has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in Africa. Support the Cuso CAN Fund and help save the lives of moms and babies around the world.

 

The maternity ward at Pawe Hospital in Ethiopia is nothing like wards in Canada,  80% of Ethiopian women give birth without a skilled health worker and are 55x more likely to die during childbirth than a woman in Canada. However with more training and better hospital protocols, health workers in Pawe can recognize danger signs earlier, treat them faster, and help more moms deliver their babies safely.  

 

This Giving Tuesday, you can help Canadian volunteers ensure that Ethiopian mothers deliver their babies safely. Visit www.cusocanfund.ca for more information and to donate.
