Endless Writing, Drawing & Creating

If you use scrap paper or sticky notes, try keeping track of your ideas on a Boogie Board. Draw and erase on a smooth, pressure sensitive LCD screen. It’s a thin, portable device, and if you lose your stylus, take quick notes using your finger.

 

 

Grandma Approved Toddler Toy

The colorful Winkel is easy for our smallest to hold and rattle on demand. It’s soft, pliable, and can be refrigerated to later soothe sore gums. A plus: if the ol’ bonkeroo to the head happens, it won’t hurt.
