Edie Parker Abstract Basketball
What is going on, I am all of a sudden posting design-y balls. This one last week. Now this basketball. A new obsession?
This is a baby sweater. I wish it came in adult sizes.

This magnetic pillow fort would have made little Tina very, very happy. You can back it for 45 more hours over on Kickstarter.
I would have loved this jumper as a little kid.

My Kids Love Blinks
Two weeks ago my kids discovered Blinks. The initial excitement was big. And continues. I am in the stage of parenting where I never know what will be a hit with my kids – Blinks is a definite winner.
It too *me* a moment to wrap my head around the idea of Blinks as it is like nothing I have ever seen. My kids of course picked it all up way faster than me. I would describe Blinks as a table-top game from the future.
Each ‘Blink Node’ represents one game and if you decide to play it, it tells the other pieces to get on board and programs them to do so. It all feels quite magical. So, basically, you have multiple board games at your fingertips, and as you add more blinks over time (they continuously come out with new ones) your game library expands.
We have the Combo Set and have had so much fun discovering the various games you can play. My kids definitely love Wham and speed racer. My favorite is Puzzle 101.
We haven’t mastered all of them yet, as some of them seem more complex than others. I am thankful for the instructional videos. Show me and I understand. Whenever I have to read game instructions I am lost. Visual learner anyone else?
Anyhow, if you’re going stir crazy at home and want your kids to be entertained and challenged, I can’t recommend Blinks enough.
I got to video-chat-meet the founder Jon Bobrow. He was so kind to give my kids a little intro to Blinks. They loved it and him. What a joy to learn that the people behind the products you love are kind, generous humans. Jon is one of them.
Jon does live-streams on how to play with Blinks at home on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Here’s one.
And here’s the video we watched once we first got our Blinks:
Consider me and my kids a fan.
