FAMILY FINDS: by Robin Gorman Newman
Periodically, I’d like to share some cool finds I’ve come across, whether for moms or kids, that you might like to know about.
Little Pim is an award-winning foreign language immersion DVD series for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. You can give your kids a head start in cognitive development by introducing them to a second language before age 6, the language-learning window. Little Pim makes it easy and fun, and you don’t need to be a second-language speaker for your child to benefit. They currently offer six theme-based DVDs that use their unique Entertainment Immersion Method™, which combines animation and real kids. Each DVD introduces over 60 simple words and phrases for everyday activities. They offer a line of products, including gift sets Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, Italian, German, Arabic, Japanese, Hebrew, English (ESL), and Russian. The method works, and most importantly, your kids will love Little Pim, the panda! Use the code PimLater, and save 15%.
Want an easy way to decorate, and encourage the little artist in your child? Check out Write On’s – Chalkboard Vinyl Decals from Vinyl Attraction! Available in fun designs including guitars, dinosaurs, hearts, birds, alien spaceships, and football helmets, Write On’s are easy to remove, and the wall surface is not damaged. Just peel and stick! In addition to their new Chalkboard Vinyl Decals, Vinyl Attraction offers custom personalized monograms and designs that can be made to match the master bedroom’s décor, children’s bedding, the living room, or even the pet’s personal space. Choose one simple saying or create a mural effect with the designs – lots to pick from!
Whether you’re suffering from heat due to hot flashes, sports, outdoor activities, etc., COOL OFF™, the pocket-sized, natural cooling towelette is here for you. The soothing and cooling effect and convenient packaging makes it easy to keep them around the house, in the car, at work, in your gym bag, and even in your jeans pocket. Infused with a clean-scented formulation of natural ingredients including cooling herbs, plant botanicals, and essential oils, these towelettes feel good. Simply remove the towelette from its foil packet, shake lightly, and press it onto the back of the neck, inner arms and back of knees. Then blot the forehead and other desired areas. COOL OFF™ is available on CVS.com, Amazon.com, and Duane Reade stores in New York.
Do you suffer from allergies and/or asthma? Smartsilk™’s allergy pillow offers total protection from dust mites and allergens. The silk-lined pillows also ease the effects of night sweats and chills that may occur during menopause or while undergoing chemotherapy, resulting in a cooler, more comfortable nights sleep. There are also pillows for kids and even the family pet (poor pets suffer from allergies too!). You can view more info on the allergy pillow at http://www.smartsilk.com/smartsilktm-pillow.html.
