A page from a 1969 children’s book on “how our government helps us”. Sigh.
This is is remarkably fascinating: Squid speak a unique, undeciphered language using their skin
Need to draw a circle but you don’t have a compass? This video will help!
Zuni Fellehner and Kirsten Fabinski are the creators of Kritzelbuch, German for Scribble Book. 80 lined pages to create designs in. I would love to have this during phone meetings as I am a notorious scribbler.
(I unfortunately couldn’t find it on their website, it might be so new it’s not up yet.) You can buy the book here.
My kids always want a bottle of water next to their beds at night. And often they knock it over and it spills. This is where Litecup comes in. It emits a blue glow so your kid doesn’t have to fumble in the dark. It allows you to drink from anywhere on the lid—there’s a 360-degree valve. And when you’re done, the valve locks automatically. So even if you knock it over, it won’t spill. Pretty cool!
Me asks kids 100s of questions about their feelings, their families, friends, school, and home, with words, pictures, photos, and sounds to create a vibrant, dynamic self-portrait.
Me aims to help kids build skills like self-awareness, social awareness, and emotional literacy. The app is based on research suggesting that the better kids understand themselves, the more able they are to be empathetic and understand others.
Psst… Tattly is currently running a Stoop Sale! (Think the Brooklyn version of a Yard or Garage sale) Use discount code STOOPSALE20, it ends Sunday!
I simply love that this UFO looking toy is titled NON-FLYING saucer. Made me laugh. Crazy adorable!
My daughter is going nuts over the Tattly Candy Jewelry Tattoos we launched this week. The designs are by Julia Rothman and the unique sweetly scented fragrance was created in collaboration with Agilex Fragrances. Think light notes of vanilla frosting, candy corn, cotton candy, and all things sweet and delicious!
Snowball Battle lets you bring snowball fights indoors! Comes with 10 lightweight snowballs, and mesh bag for easy clean up. LOVE IT!
The makers of Universe stopped by at our FRIENDS Happy Hour last night and presented their new app. Everyone was blown away. What a beautifully experimental iPhone app they have built! They have most certainly created a new medium for the mobile world.
The app’s atomic unit is a verse, a 3×5 grid for infinite creativity: art, stories, interactive experiences, radical video collages, immersive soundscapes, musical instruments, even games. Or you can go the practical route and make a portfolio, invitation, how-to guide, recipe, or even a business card.
I can’t wait to see my ten year old play around wit it! So many possibilities!
