I just love everything about this stuffed toy. First of all, it’s very beautiful. The quality is very impressive. It definitely isn’t a cheap material that you pull out of a machine. It’s made with love (pun-intended). What really makes this stand out is the secret pocket in the back. The pocket can be used from small gifts, notes, or even a tooth/money for the tooth fairy! This is a very fun gift for kids and it’s super cute. “A Transitional Object for Kids Who Miss a Parent. The Fairy Good Heart stuffed toy was inspired by Nancy Fagan’s experience as a therapist and divorce mediator. It is a soft, simple plush toy designed as a symbol to remind children that they are loved. Fagan hopes that parents will use the toy to teach their children about unconditional love and family ties. The Fairy Good Heart™ toy is based on the character of the same name in the book series, the Fables of Fairy Good Heart. Originally conceived as a comfort for children whose parents are dealing with divorce proceedings, the Fairy Good Heart™ toy can also be used in any situation where adults and children are separated. These might include shared custody living arrangements, military deployments, prison terms or even extended business trips. Features of the toy include a “parent pocket” where parents can insert notes, photos or other keepsakes for their children, and a simple design that’s small enough to fit in a suitcase and large enough to give small children something substantial to hug.”

“WOULD YOU BE MINE?” features eight stories including “It’s Love Day!” and “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise.” In “It’s Love Day,” Daniel makes special heart cards to bring to school and hand out. While at school, some of the kids explain how they like to say “I love you” to their friends and family – Prince Wednesday likes to sing, and Miss Elaina likes to give hugs. In the story “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise,” Daniel helps his mom make a special heart-shaped pizza and finds a way to show Grandpère how much he loves him by setting up a special treasure hunt just for him featuring sparkling purple hearts. The other stories included on this DVD are “Daniel and Miss Elaina Play Rocketship,” “Daniel Plays at the Castle,” “Friends Help Each Other,” “Daniel Helps O Tell a Story,” “Margaret’s First Chime Time,” and “Tiger Family Fun.” One of the key ingredients that sets this series apart is its groundbreaking use of catchy musical strategies grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark social-emotional curriculum that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and parents both sing – and use – together in their daily lives. Some of the strategies kids will learn from the stories on this DVD include “find your own way to say, I love you” and “friends help each other, yes they do, it’s true.” My girls sure do love Daniel Tiger – and so do I! He always teaches great lessons, and the songs are very catchy. My girls are constantly singing them while they do things like Daniel Tiger!
This new DVD includes five stories, two of which are Valentine’s Day themed. “My Fuzzy Valentine” features Sheep working to create a valentine song for her best friend Bear. Unfortunately she has trouble finding just the right rhyme to finish her song. With help from Fly, she uncovers the perfect rhyme and makes Bear a valentine with real heart. In “Love, Bug,” Bug wants to sign a valentine for his favorite WordFriend, but doesn’t know how to write his name. With lots of encouragement from Frog he learns that with a little practice he can write his name and give his valentine. In addition to these two great stories, this DVD also includes “Sh-Sh-Shark,” “Princess Sheep” and “There’s an Ant in Every Giant.” WORDWORLD demonstrates the connections between letters, sounds, words, and meaning in order to empower children to advance from learning letters to learning how to read. Some of the words kids will learn by watching this DVD include heart, bug, shoe and crown. My daughters are huge fans of WordWorld! I love it as well because it had them both spelling things as young as two years old! This show is very well put together and a must see for any young ones!
These tins are just the cutest! This is a great gift idea for kids this Valentine’s Day. You can include some other treats and maybe a couple of movies for a fun night in!

I must have read The BFG at least 50 times when I was younger. I was one of those kids that could always be found in a book. I read several books a week and reread my favorites – The BFG was one of those. I can vividly remember sitting under my covers and reading it many nights (kind of perfect, isn’t it?). When I heard that Disney was going to be making The BFG into a film, and directed by Stephen Spielberg no less, well, let’s just say I was excited. The movie comes out on July 1st, 2016 and to get your child excited about it, why not pick up a copy of the book for Valentine’s Day? They are sure to love it – my girls do! The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It’s lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants—rather than the BFG—she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!
