HAPPY NEW YEAR
There are numerous things we buy for our kids and some of them have a ‘wow, i guess i shall buy this once more’ effect as parents.
most of the toys don’t last until i can get a good picture of it. they have, according to my kid, some invisible wings which he tests by throwing it from our third floor flat. sadly they end up dying a miserable broken death within two days! some are valued so much that they accompany my husband and me on the bed that night and if the toy behaves well … a few nights! he clings on them and dreams about them like his favorite set of digger and excavators and dumpers.
some items like the perfect shampoo for his hair and the most baby like fragrance lotion always hit on my shopping list on a repeat. some edibles are so yum that i often sneak in his snack jar while he ain’t watching for a treat myself. hahaha such a bad mom i am !!
here is my list of most recommended or best buys for toddlers 2015.
comes in a wooden environmental friendly box, this linking the pipe set is amazing. teach them colors, shapes, hand-eye co-ordination etc. and as a mom i love the fact that he is left to imagine any
thing that he wants to make. there is nothing perfect or right way to creativity. he imagines and makes aeroplanes , guns, tables, water fountains from these. plus he repeats colors everytime he makes them. home schooling= check!!
perfect for everything. we clean our toys and utensils, fruits and clothes and sometimes even wipe his cupboard shelf with this.
everywhere a child’s hands reach he is bound to get in contact with a million germs. some good, some bad. and no kid is like Lord Krishna who would be just fine even if he eats mud! we have had days when he would throw up if his meal plate ain’t cleaned well. since then i clean all his utensils myself. all his clothes are rinsed by me first in this liquid before its dumped with the rest of the clothes in the washing machine. as a mom everything goes under my nose and eyes radar before it reaches him. this chicco bottle is a strong recommendation for all mommies and house daddies.
marriages, jungle treks and lots of other such parties where finger foods by heinz and gerber come handy. one box at the age of three is too small to call a meal but at times it really helps me to get him seated for an hour until we find food suitable for him. i have had days when he would just not have milk! i get the milk sipper filled at a supra high rate at a 5star resort and he would not touch it because the milk has a different taste… troubles with kids who only drink and eat certain flavors !! keeping a pack or two is always recommended no matter what the child’s age is!
no! certainly not the bottle… the crocs in blue! lol
we bought these for five times the cost normal crocs like shoes in malls and stores and i m happy we bought the costlier version. best buy for him. he literally lives in them. they are comfortable, he runs and jumps in them, he plays in the park and rides his bicycle in them. he climbed some 500 steps while we were doing some sight-seeing at a holiday. summers rains n cold… perfect for all seasons. i wont be able to describe it better. it lasted the entire year and maybe this year too and maybe sometime late this year i shall give it to a kid younger than him and that kid will also be able to use it for long. what better can i ask for his tiny budding soft feet?! best buy of the year.
we have travelled a lot this year and with the changing season the nose always gets blocked, the sneezes never stop and the endless itchy nights leave the kid and myself sleep deprived. this jnj vapor bath is so good. add it in an empty bucket or bathtub, fill the bucket/bathtub with warm running water and the entire thing is filled with white non-soapy bubbles. and the bathroom is filled with menthol vapors. i would recommend this to all mothers for themselves as well as their kids. it can be used for kids 3 months and above. perfect for hair wash too. doesn’t work as a shampoo, once shampoo is applied cleanse it with this water and all dirty mucous comes running out from the nose. the inhaling on soft vapor air helped us clean those chocked and blocked nose and lungs. this winter we haven’t been to the doc. three cheers for jnj vapor bath!
