February is all about love, and that includes the kids. Our friends at the National Parenting Product Awards recommend these great products for story and activity time and keeping your kids safe and comfy.
For storytime fun, “The Princess and the Pickup Truck” ($15.95, ages 5-10) is an Appalachian retelling of “The Princess and the Pea” and is perfect for princesses who prefer hiking boots.
Go on a fun adventure with “Claire Lost Her Bear at The World’s Fair” (Book + Plush) ($34.95, ages 3+), which brings a sweet story and lots of great facts about the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair to life.
Or check out “Buckets, Dippers, and Lids: Secrets to Your Happiness” ($10.95, ages 7+) to help kids grow their understanding of kindness, self-control, resilience, empathy and forgiveness.
Keep an eye on Baby with Nanit Plus ($279). The monitor’s overhead HD camera tracks Baby’s sleep patterns, parent visits and room conditions and provides guidance to help achieve optimal sleep.
If you’re on the go, opt for zooby Car and Home Baby Monitor ($169.97), a portable and plush car and home monitor. With two-way audio, the little animals help you keep tabs on Baby even when she’s in a rear-facing car seat.
When your little one takes a break, SnoozeShade ($89.99, ages birth until child outgrows playpen), a mom-invented breathable mesh canopy, provides distraction-free napping in the playpen.
Give older kids a break from screen time with Screen Time Parental Control (4.99/per month). It includes a pause button, allowing parents to use their own smartphones to “pause” their children’s devices remotely. The app also allows children to earn more screen time by doing specific tasks, and parents to set daily screen time limits and block certain apps.
