We’re back from Toy Fair NY and buddy we found him! R2D2!! Wait, is a R2D2 is a him right? Can a droid be a he or a she? It? Should we say we found…it? We live in confusing times people, the verbiage is key, so let’s just say we found the droid you are looking for.
The amazing littleBits is a tech startup from NYC that creates toys that empower kids to invent with easy to use electronic blocks. Hmm, what little droid is made up of tiny electronic blocks? Why R2 of course. Question, was Luke Skywalker the first S.T.E.M. icon?
This littleBits kit comes with everything that you child needs to create their very own R2 unit at home. Once they are done creating the droid continues to impress as it drives around your house in three different modes. Trust us, the force mode is the BEST! Check out the video below and smash that buy link. (more…)
We have tons of small figurines here at home, Peppa Pigs, Disney princesses, nearly everyone from Sesame Street and of course M. I. C. K. E. Y. – M. O.U. S. E.. When we got the new line of ANIA figurines from Tomy Toys the first thing my kiddo explained was “They are real daddy!” She meant that they are lifelike in appearance which is a commitment to their amazing design. Each figurine has one or two minimal movements that help create that spark of imagination that will propel your child into adventure with their new animals. These toys have three distinct lines, Ocean, Grasslands, Prehistoric and Arctic but if you are like our family you will totally have a T-Rex mixing it up with a red panda and a meerkat. We may have had a princess or two riding a polar bear at one point no big deal.
You can find these figurines at your local Toys R’ Us or online in a very family friendly price range. Get playing!
ANIA Get ready for a pack of animal fun with ANIA Animals, the all-new preschool line of articulated animals and playsets designed to inspire hours of nature-themed play and exploration. Highly-detailed ANIA Animals feature multiple points of articulation for realistic role play and feature animals from around the globe. Ages: 3 years and up.
Not to sound overly fretty but KIDS COME QUICK…there is a Yeti In My Spaghetti. This Game Of The Year winner is so much fun to play with the whole family. The concept is simple enough that even though it’s advertised as 4+ we found that our toddler loved playing too. Be careful what noodle you pull out, you don’t want to be the first one to let the yeti fall into the bowl dad!
Who knew yetis liked spaghetti?!? We did! In this wacky, fun game, the noodles are laid across the bowl and the yeti is just sitting there on the noodles…but as you remove the noodles one by one (be careful!), the yeti could fall into the bowl, and that would mean you lose!
What we love about the award-winning brand of Roominate are the endless creative hours your kids can spend building, playing and tearing apart. Any toy that both teaches STEM skills and occupies the kiddo’s time is a win in the Relevant Dad book.
Snap the pieces together to start your creations…if you can imagine it, you can make it! Design your carnival, and try other things, too. Arrange the food and game play pieces, along with the stickers, or add your own accessories and artwork! Then, bring your creations to life with the circuits and motors!
We have been having a toddler getting out of bed 2-3 times a night problem for a while now. First, it was the scary AC kicking on in her room, then it was because she was thirsty and most recently it was to check on her little sister. We have compromised with leaving the door open a crack, buying her new Frozen sheets, like Anna and Elsa Frozen, not actual sheets that freeze her into her bed although that is a pretty good idea no? What has actually worked for the time being was buying her an awesome new night light. This birdcage night light was just cute enough that she was both excited to get it but it also was a good incentive to stay in bed. She loves the two different brightness options and the fact that it stays lit all night on a single charge. Check out how cute this thing is and click the BUY button below.
