Great picks, Kirsten! 🙂 We love Spot It. 🙂
Thanks for sharing with us at Mommy Monday!
Great List! We have some kid headphones but the second pair has just broken.. I think I’m going to invest in these nicer ones. LOVE the magnetibook – just picked one up for my son last week.
Very cool! Our boys love these headphones and they are very durable!
What fantastic suggestions ! I love the Little Passports kits (and am planning to try it out for my daughter). I only wish they had one for my age. 🙂
Tara, you can play along with her!
These are great suggestions, thanks! I really like the idea behind the UNICEF power kid band, I’ll have to see if they are available in the UK as we will be heading back there this year for the holidays (I definitely know they don’t have them in Mexico!) 🙂
Maybe someone in the US can send them to you? Not sure how that works, but I love the idea behind them.
