Just like me, they're not too into commercialism and way more into products that make a child do, think and learn. Which, as anyone who has been reading my reviews the past 5(!) years knows is completely my style of toys. This year, ASTRA created a Best … [Read more...]

I've made a decision: there's no longer a need to buy full-sized board games who's boxes will collapse and pieces will be lost, not if minimus has the game in travel size. We brought Milton Bradley's Candyland and Ohio Art's MagnaDoodle on our vacation. Both were perfect for storing in Wesley's miniature backpack and playing on the plane, at the … [Read more...]

If there is one thing I love about this time of year it is all the Top Ten Lists. I'm a sucker for lists any time of the year but even more so as the clock is ticking the minutes down to the New Year. I'd like to share with you some of my favorite products that were reviewed in 2006. Some were from my own reviews, some from others. All are things I … [Read more...]

This was a tough assignment. MWS writers are pretty fortunate. We get to review products we love, and readers can usually tell just how much we love them. So when I was asked to list my top ten reviews for 2006, I stuttered. I paused. I procrastinated. My top 10?! How can I do that? That's like asking me which is my favorite movie of all time. Or … [Read more...]

So, when he opened his gifts, we were so excited to try out Carson's Automoblox. This is one cool toy. There are no loud noises, no flashing lights. And … [Read more...]
