ALPHABOTZ by Ideopolis, LLC

ALPHABOTZ by Ideopolis, LLC



Description: ALPHABOTZ, colorful oversized flash cards invented by a mom that help children unlock the mysteries of the English language. Since learning to read is no easy task, why not use a longtime favorite of children, robots, to help them learn? Each card depicts a different robot, or Alphabot, and children learn about phonics through visual clues, sound association and stats. Awarded Best 100 Toys of 2009 by Dr. Toy. A multimedia program for children ages 3 and up, designed by a parent and teacher to engage and build confidence in beginning readers by personifying the abstract concept that LETTERS equal SOUNDS, SOUNDS build WORDS, and WORDS tell amazing STORIES. Through a proven combination of teaching strategies including phonemic awareness, phonics, sight words, and language experience, a cast of fun, captivating characters provides useful tools for unlocking the secrets to this code adults call reading. Each ALPHABOTZ character represents a sound in the English language, and wears its identifying letter/sound on its chest. These cute, colorful robots have their own special personalities and abilities. Children share adventures with the ALPHABOTZ that incorporate fun, secret formulas for breaking codes, surprises, special needs, humor and love, and just happen to learn about the joy and power of reading along the way. The 46-card set is printed using vibrant colors on durable card-stock and comes in a handsome pull out drawer-style box.

For recreation, Gustafer enjoys jumping on cake. Morgan Taylor developed the Gustafer Yellowgold experience as equal parts pop rock concert and minimally animated movie. It’s a music and animation extravaganza, but mellow, always mellow. Named ‘BEST KIDS’ PERFORMER 2008’ by New York Magazine, Morgan Taylor has been developing material about the visitor from the sun since 2005 and has released three award-winning Gustafer Yellowgold DVD/CD sets. The most recent installment, GUSTAFER YELLOWGOLD’S MELLOW FEVER, features WILCO members Pat Sansone and John Stirratt, along with Lisa Loeb.

WHY DOES GRAY MATTER?

WHY DOES GRAY MATTER ... AND OTHER BRAINY SONGS FOR KIDS!

WHY DOES GRAY MATTER ... AND OTHER BRAINY SONGS FOR KIDS!



Description: Parents’ Choice® Gold winning musician Roger Day scales the pinnacle of braininess with his fourth CD and first “theme” album, WHY DOES GRAY MATTER? … AND OTHER BRAINY SONGS FOR KIDS! The disc offers fourteen originals, each one devoted to the wonders and mysteries of the human brain. In the spirit of Schoolhouse Rock and Bill Nye, the Science Guy, WHY DOES GRAY MATTER? includes “Brain Food – Eat it Up!” which uses omega 3, lypocene and green tea in a B-52s inspired rocker about the best foods for brain health. The “Left Brain/Right Brain” song illustrates the different functions of each side of the brain: the left brain is a Bach-inspired baroque string quartet and the right brain – naturally – is a bad British punk rock band. Roger Day co-wrote “The Brain Train” with Dr. John Paul Bouffard, Chief Neuropathologist at Overlook Hospital in New Jersey; the song takes a peek inside Ringo Starr’s brain during that nanosecond from Ringo’s first thought about playing the drums to showtime at Shea Stadium. Roger says, “I’m confident this is the first – and probably last -- children’s song that uses words like ‘corpus callosum’ and ‘deep basal ganglia’ in the lyrics.”

Teen Stages Book Cover

Teen Stages Book Cover



Description: Ken and Elizabeth Mellor’s Teen Stages: Age-by-Age, Stage-by-Stage—The Best Ways to Talk So That Teens Will Listen (ISBN 9781402215292; TP $14.99 US/$15.99 CAN/£7.99 May 1, 2009). Books on parenting teens fly off the shelves, as parents struggle to cope with the sudden changes and shifts in their child's personality. But most books talk about the teen as if they're all the same...when any parent can tell you that a 13-year-old is as different from a 16-year-old as Jekyll is from Hyde. Teen Stages is the first teen parenting guide to describe each year of a teen's development, giving parents understanding and tactics specific to the teen stage their child is experiencing: The Baby (13), The Dissenter (14), The Fledgling (15), The Sweet and Sour (16), The Romantic (17), and The World Leader (18-21). Teen Stages is a breakthrough in understanding the teen years and a must-have on any parent's shelf. Ken and Elizabeth Mellor are internationally renowned parent educators, social workers and psychotherapists who each have more than 30 years’ experience in working with children and parents, bringing simple parenting techniques to everyday lives. They live in Australia.

GREAT DAY By Milkshake

GREAT DAY by Milkshake

GREAT DAY by Milkshake



Description: With the announcement that Milkshake’s album GREAT DAY has been nominated for a 2010 GRAMMY® Award, the Baltimore-based rock band for kids has achieved yet another milestone in a remarkable career. Milkshake began in 2002 as a musical experiment on the part of vocalist Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl, longtime bandmates from Baltimore’s indie rock group Love Riot, who vowed to “grow” their music right along with their own young children. Since then, Milkshake and the band’s legion of fans have been living an exciting, real-life, growing up adventure, moving from early childhood through the early elementary years, as the group toured the country and produced three multi-award-winning CDs, a DVD, and a multitude of music videos seen all over the kid-friendly networks. Along the way, as the kids grew and the music grew with them, Milkshake grew from a duo to a six-piece band. Known for their pop-rock style that fairly crackles with energy, Milkshake has a following of all ages. GREAT DAY demonstrates the rocking energy, true teamwork, and sheer joy of six musicians performing “live to disc” the material that has won them coast-to-coast applause.

Choosing Me Before We

Choosing Me Before We

Choosing Me Before We



Description: Author and life coach Christine Arylo turns the topic of love relationships on it’s head by asking women to stop trying to find, fix, or catch a mate, and to start getting real with themselves. She asks, “Who is the ‘real ME?” What does she really want? How do her actions and beliefs create her reality, and therefore her relationships?” Arylo, who almost married the wrong guy for all the wrong reasons, openly and honestly shares her real-life experiences and a-ha moments, and those of her friends and clients to help women uncover their own truths about life and love. CHOOSING ME BEFORE WE offers the wisdom and liberation that is possible when we discover, love, and live for “me” instead of starting with “he” or “we.” Arylo’s authenticity and sincerity make her book as inviting and entertaining as a conversation between girlfriends over a glass of wine.

Choosing ME before WE by Christine Arylo

Choosing ME before WE by Christine Arylo



Description: While it may be Mother’s Day 2009, a time when women have come so far over the decades to be able to have anything, women are still putting themselves last and beating themselves up for not doing, having or being enough. We beat ourselves up when we aren’t perfect. Would we stop loving our kids if they weren’t perfect? We act like to love ME would be extremely selfish. Would we tell our kids not to love themselves? This Mother’s Day, Christine Arylo author of CHOOSING ME BEFORE WE is asking women to trade in the old behaviors of sacrificing oneself for the sake of everyone else, for a new set of beliefs that give her the power to love herself and those around her even more.

Smartipants

Smartipants reusable diapers

Smartipants reusable diapers



Description: Smartipants is the one-size-fits-all reusable diaper that is the softest most comfortable diaper, keeping baby’s skin dry and rash-free. The most advanced reusable diaper on the market, Smartipants offers the first-ever Smart Sleeve design for a microfiber self-removable insert, and the softest, non-piling inner lining made of “breathable” fibers free from chemicals and irritants. Its durable, waterproof polyurethane shell (available in seven colors) and gentle-stretch, leak-guard gussets and elastic prevent spillage and can withstand heavy usage and frequent machine washing. Its adjustable snaps, which last longer than Velcro and are guaranteed for two years, allow Smartipants to grow from newborns to toddlers (7-35 lbs.). Smartipants is also affordable and environmentally sensitive, with the average family saving close to $3,000 by switching to reusable diapers. And while adding only two extra loads of laundry per week (the same amount of water as a few daily toilet flushes), Smartipants doesn’t add to the roughly 3.4 million tons of disposable diaper waste that goes into U.S. landfills each year, not to mention the trees, plastic and chemicals required to produce disposable diapers. Production for Smartipants is here in the United States!
