WITH COMMENT #25
I am at a new season of life.
The teenage and beyond years.
I'm no longer "in the know" with what products are offered to toddlers and babies. I know there is a wide selection of various "must haves", I just couldn't tell you what they are. Just looking around and listening to new moms discuss all the "stuff" they have for their babies and toddlers is exhausting.
My great-nephew---yes, he IS great in more ways than one!- recently had his 3rd birthday.
I was at a loss as to what to get him. I had NO IDEA what my choices were. I wanted to buy something useful, meaningful and educational.
I'm not a big fan of all the "make-believe/fantasy" stuff even if he is, BUT I still want him to enjoy the gift I do give him. I wouldn't want him to think, "ugh, this one is from Auntie Cinny".
If I remember correctly, I ended up buying a drawing set with crayons, markers, etc.
After my 3 year old birthday gift dilemma I came upon a great resource called Little One Books. This is the brain-child of Joan McCoy and Barney Cohen who have five grandchildren under the age of seven. They had the same trouble I did, not being in the "season of life" with children any longer, that as they looked for books, music and videos for their own grandchildren, they were overwhelmed by the number of products.
That's why they created Little One Books - to help others make informed choices among the vast amount of material available for young children today.
Barney and Joan have personally selected and reviewed each and every item that Little One Books carries.
They have taken a task that seems overwhelming and made it manageable. Their website is easy to navigate with a lot of helpful information to guide you.
I especially like their gift bundles. These themed bundles provide the perfect combination of media geared toward a certain age group. For my 3 year old nephew I could have chosen this bundle:
A CD, DVD and book wrapped in a silver pouch tied with a festive ribbon.
