Every Child’s Dream

While his wife was out shopping, YouTube prankster Roman Atwood filled the entire bottom floor of their house with plastic balls. I love this.

Taco Truckslideshow_1

My studiomate Mans just launched the OTO Taco Truck. (You might have seen the Icecream truck from last year) I don’t know about you, but my son’s head will explode when he gets this for the holidays. Goes perfectly with his favorite book Dragons Love Tacos.

Jumbo Bananagrams

I would totally love playing with this oversized version of Bananagrams.

Tinybop Homes

Team Tinybop has been hustling: They just launched their third app, illustrated by Tuesday Bassen, called Homes.

It allows you to explore four unique homes around the world, from NYC to Mongolia. Wander in, cook, and play. You can investigate the utilities but watch out for wires spark and tubs overflowing…

The best part, you’re totally allowed to make a mess! Or clean up, with help from a curious cat. What I love the most is that you can personalize each space with your photos and drawings; see yourself in mirrors.

I love the Human Body and Plants, but Homes is definitely my favorite Tinybop baby so far. Try it!

Toca Boo

My daughter (8) is getting such a kick out of the newest Toca Boca game called BOO. (My favorite is still the Hair Salon)

Miximal App

The Dancing Traffic Light

As a NYC mom, concerned about my kids’ street safety, I love the dancing traffic light concept. And how surprising that this is an idea by smart, the car company.

This Fox Likes Tattoos

Cutie Tattotie Fox

Team Tattly partnered with North American Bear on tattoable dolls, called Cutie Tattootie. Seriously adorable, right. (Not to mention the girl!) The fox comes with 12 Tattly tattoos that the kid can either apply on themselves or on the doll. Put the doll in the washer and the tattoos disappear. Fun, right?

Have you watched the sugru founders wonderful 99u talk?

Just launched: Plants by Tinybop

I am so incredibly excited for my friends at Tinybop: They just released their second iOS app called Plants, a vibrant, interactive diorama of the world’s biomes!

Plants is the second app in Tinybop’s Explorer’s Library. The first, The Human Body, reached the #1 spot on the App Store’s education charts in 143 countries and was named one of the App Store’s Best of 2013. Like the Human Body, Plants is a slow-play app which aims to help kids make connections about the world and prompt big questions. Can’t wait to explore it tonight with my kids!

Buy Plants for $1.99 in iTunes. And most of all, make sure to check out this epic (!) stop animation by Kelli Anderson.
