Both Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day are a week away. Celebrate the holidays with a personalized gift from 5amily. Nothing says “I love you” like personalized valentine’s day gifts and 5amily has a wide range of products that you can customize. Products include shirts, coffee mugs, hoodies, tote bags and more. You can reply on 5amily large array of gift ideas to leave a lasting impression. It’s so easy during Valentine’s Day to get wrapped up in expensive gift giving. Now don’t get me wrong, I love roses and perfume as much as the next woman, but a personalized coffee mug is a practical gift. Use the coffee mug as the basses for a DYI gift and fill it with a Coffee Crisp chocolate bar, some Werther’s originals caramel candy and a package of flavored coffee. Personalized coffee mugs make the perfect gift for a significant other, family member of your gal pal. The coffee mug I ordered from 5amily.for my daughter is made of a high quality ceramic, and is microwave and dishwasher safe. This mug can be printed with anyone’s name in big bold letters. The design is baked on the ceramic mug and will not scratch off nor come off in the dishwasher. The best part is the mugs are low cost, and affordable. And the saying I chose was super cute and fitting for my daughter. Shipping took about 2 weeks to arrive from Illinois US to Ontario Canada. I did find the 5amily website difficult to navigate and I do with products were laid out to make it easier to find just what you were looking for. Nonetheless, the design transferred to the mug was crisp, clear and bright. Therefore, I am pleased with the product and quick shipping. I have used similar personalized printing services and have been greatly unsatisfied. With that said, I would definitely order from 5amily again. Please visit https://5amily.com.

It is that time of year again- hugs and kisses all around. This is obviously the sweetest of all holidays. Besides spending time with my husband, I love pulling out the Valentine’s Day books, cuddling up on the couch with my daughter and reading a book or two. We are celebrating Valentine’s Day this year by adding three new Valentine’s Day books for kids to to her collection of every growing books. Happy Valentine’s Day, Curious George- George and his friends celebrate Valentine’s Day with decorating, baking, card making and some unexpected amusement along the way! Just how much mischief can one curious little monkey get into? This book is actually a tad shorter than some of the other curious George books my daughter owns. My daughter loved being part of the story by opening the flaps in the book. This was a huge plus. The illustrations in the book are colorful and overall the story was a cute read. The book definitely went over well with my little Curious George fan. Chick ‘n’ Pug: The Love Pug- Chick and Pug are back-this time in a more romantic backyard adventure perfect for Valentine’s Day and all year round! When a new neighbor visits, Chick can hardly believe his eyes. Her name is Daisy, and she’s BEAUTIFUL! She would be a perfect match for his best buddy, Pug. Daisy is instantly smitten, even if Pug doesn’t seem to notice. She’ll need to get creative to win his affection, but when Pug finds himself in a pickle, Daisy’s quick thinking saves the day and proves that even the most stubborn pugs are capable of true love. Fans of the Chick ‘n’ Pug series will love this new addition. The illustrations are clever and bring life to the text. Overall, my daughter and I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more books in the series. Ollie’s Valentine- Up next comes a new board book in Olivier Dunrea’s Gossie & Friends series! You may recognize Ollie from “Ollie’s Easter Eggs”. In Ollie’s Valentine, adorable duckling Ollie wants a valentine. He keeps asking his friends, but discovers they all already have their valentines. Who will be Ollie’s? A surprise mirror on the last page holds the answer. The colorful foil hearts in the book adds a texture that toddlers will want to rub their fingers over. Fans of the Gossip and Friends series are sure to love this latest addition. Overall, the book was a really cute read. Do you have any book suggestions?

Enesco Canada proudly offers Disney Traditions collectable figurines by Jim Shore. Combining the magic of Disney with the artistry of Jim Shore, each piece from the series reveals Jim’s artistry and skill, in not only capturing the essence and magical qualities of each Disney character. but also enhancing in Jim’s own unique American folk art-inspired style. Each figurine in this unique collection is hand painted and sculpted in resin. Whether it’s the classic Minnie and Minnie, or Beauty and the Beast romance, romance is in the air when it comes to these figures. I own 3 Jim Shore figurines already, with my newest being the Mickey & Minnie Ring Dish. Like other figures I own, this particular figure does not disappoint! Like other Jim Shore figures, the Mickey & Minnie Ring Dish is very detailed.

A new world of characters joins the Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) portfolio this year with the launch of HANAZUKI, a story-driven lifestyle brand that invites audiences to discover a new, visually stunning and far-off moon galaxy full of treasures, surprises, emotions, and a colorful cast of friends at the heart of it all. Hasbro’s newest entertainment franchise-brand-in-the-making debuts with the Company’s first ever animated digital series, HANAZUKI Full of Treasures, premiering on YouTube and the YouTube Kids app. HANAZUKI, a spirited young moonflower, is at the center of this bold new galaxy where she embarks on an unpredictable hero’s journey to save her moon from dark forces that threaten to destroy it. Through this adventure, she meets new friends, and discovers a world full of surprises and new feelings, ultimately learning that her ever-changing moods prove to be quite powerful. The HANAZUKI brand is inspired by whimsical character creations originating out of Amsterdam and being brought to life by Hasbro through a rich and immersive storyline focused on the power of embracing how you’re feeling, no matter what your mood. “We couldn’t be happier that our beloved HANAZUKI inspired Hasbro to further develop the colorful cast of characters and create such a unique and dynamic new world full of surprises and magical mayhem,” said Niko Stumpo and Hanneke Metselaar, local Amsterdam artists and original creators of HANAZUKI. “It’s been incredible to see Hasbro evolve the HANAZUKI brand into so much more through vibrant storytelling, toys, and beyond.” “In working closely with Niko and Hanneke, we were inspired by the spirit of Hanazuki and identified her as a strong, multidimensional and relatable heroine,” said Samantha Lomow, senior vice president, Hasbro Brands. “Within her effervescent world, we’ve developed a unique story that encourages audiences to embrace their ever-changing emotions and celebrate them in a uniquely empowering way. We know audiences will fall in love with Hanazuki and her magical and eccentric world.” Produced by Hasbro Studios in collaboration with Titmouse Studios, the HANAZUKI Full of Treasures animated digital series transports viewers into a distant galaxy full of colorful moons, and a mysterious dark force that threatens this new world. The story follows the adventures of HANAZUKI as she discovers she possesses a great power that is revealed when she expresses her many moods, which just may be the key to saving the entire galaxy. As she explores her lunar world, HANAZUKI meets strange and humorous characters along the way, including spirited bunny-like creatures called HEMKAS, a sleepy moon child known as LITTLE DREAMER who delivers daily treasures, the self-appointed sheriff of HANAZUKI’S moon, DAZZLESSENCE JONES who sparkles and shines while making sure law and order is preserved, the aptly named SLEEPY UNICORN, and more.

Maintaining a safe and hazard-free environment for our children is at the top of most parents lists. It seems keeping a beady eye out for choking hazards, BPA plastics and other toxic materials and paint is not enough. Despite hundred of babies being injured and even killed each year, dangerous baby products are still freely available for sale. Here are five baby products you should avoid to keep your baby safe. Crib Tents The logic behind crib tents seem sound enough. A breathable canopy is placed over the crib to stop toddlers from climbing out and then falling to the floor. Cat owners also buy them to prevent their furry friends from smothering sleeping babies. However, babies have become tangled in the tent netting and choking to death. Other serious injuries have also occurred due to the tents collapsing on top of infants. Several children have been strangled to death. Recently, one poor infant suffered serious brain damage after being caught between the rods and mesh of the tent. What Has Been Done: Some models of crib tents have already been recalled. 20,000 units manufactured by “Tots in Mind” were recalled in 2010 following a toddler fatality. Following the deaths, several investigations have been launched, but crib tents are still on the market. Safer Alternatives: Not using crib tents (or attaching anything to a crib) is always recommended by the American Association of Paediatrics. If your toddler is climbing out of the crib, it could well be time to move them to a toddler bed. Cats should also be kept out of nurseries. This makes things much more hygienic and safer for your baby. If this is a problem, there are ultrasonic cat deterrents you can also buy. 2. Changing Tables Another product that seems a good idea is a baby changing table. A flat surface that is easy to clean makes changing a squirming baby easier. Sadly, the reality is that hundreds of babies are injured each year falling from changing tables. This frequently results in fractured skulls and even death. Just this week, a baby in Des Moines, Iowa died when she rolled over and suffocated on the table. The mother is being charged with child endangerment after she left the room. What Has Been Done: Last September, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) met to try and formulate stricter safety standards for baby changing tables. As of right now, even a voluntary safety standard for manufacturers is not in force. Which just seems nuts. Safer alternatives: Changing tables with four sides are safer for babies. Some also dip in the middle to make the sides higher and prevent falling. You can also buy ones with safety harnesses to further secure your baby. As with a lot of similar baby products, you should never leave your baby unattended at any time. Infant Sling Carriers If you’re like me, you may have wondered why brands like “Ergo” and “Baby Bjorn” get away with charging over $100 for a baby carrier. After some research into these products, I saw that it’s because some of the cheaper ones drop babies and can also cause a suffocation hazard! From 2003 – 2016 there were 159 reported incidents with 17 infants dying due to baby slings. The deaths were caused by newborns suffocating when pressed in close to their mother. It only takes a minute or two for them to suffocate and they can not even cry for help. What Has Been Done: Just this week, the US CPSC has approved a new federal safety standard for sling carriers. The standard will be mandatory. The standard includes provisions such as ensuring baby carriers can safely carry three times the manufacturer’s stated weight, pictures for proper carrying positions and structural integrity tests. Safer Alternatives: Well, a safer alternative is always a stroller. But if you’re like me, you’ll find crowded places and lots of steps make strollers difficult. Well-known brands like Baby Bjorn and Ergo as we mentioned do perform a lot of research on their carriers. It seems this is one area where paying a bit extra will result in peace-of-mind. 4. Baby Walkers Canada is setting the standards when it comes to baby walkers. After causing hundreds of injuries and quite a few baby fatalities, they were completely banned in 2004. Anybody caught selling them can be fined $100,000 and face 6-months in jail. Meanwhile, in the USA they are still widely available. And yes, you guessed it – injuring babies. In 2014 (the most recent statistics I could find) 2,900 children visited emergency rooms as a result of baby walkers. Most of the injuries are caused by children getting into kitchens and grabbing hazardous items such as boiling water, knives, floor fans and chemicals. Several deaths and severe injuries were also recorded where the babies rolled down flights of stairs and fractured their skulls. In Europe, they estimated that 90% of the injuries caused were to a baby’s head. And baby walkers caused more accidents than any other baby product. Yet on Amazon.com, there are still pages after pages of baby walkers listed. What Has Been Done: Canada has banned them completely. America should really follow suit. Meanwhile, there is a mandatory standard that is supposed to make them wider to not fit through doors. This does not stop them from crashing into furniture and quickly grabbing things parents thought were far enough away! Safer Alternatives: After the dangers of baby walkers hit the press, “Exersaucers” were marketed to replace them. These products have no wheels, but your baby can bounce, spin and move around them. For now, it seems a much safer alternative. Baby Bath Seats / Chairs Amazingly, baby bath seats have been on the market since 1981. Dozens of babies have died as a result of using them. Yet, it wasn’t until 2010 mandatory Safety Standard was brought out to regulate bath seats. Even after bath seats became regulated, 14 baby deaths were associated with them between 2010 and 2012 alone. The problems arise due to the leg holes being too wide or the suction cups failing. In October of last year, the Lexibook Baby Bath Seat was recalled. It failed safety tests for stability and for tipping over in the bath. Baby and all! Why have they lasted so long? Well, it appears that parents had a false sense of security and left the bathroom to answer the phone or take care of a quick chore. So the baby companies claimed it was the parent’s fault and not the product. What Has Been Done: Many of these seats have either been recalled or are no longer for sale. In addition to the mandatory safety standard of 2010, the CPSC is calling for a total ban. Let’s hope it’s successful! Safer Alternatives: Some people have suggested the smaller inflatable bath tubs that go in regular tubs to be a safer product. However, a lot of injuries have also been associated with these, too. It seems that we should take care of baby baths the old fashioned way – with our own two hands.
