Tried, Tested & True: Kushies Stacrobats

As a mom, I am forever on the lookout for innovative and creative toys for my kids. Kushies is renowned for their quality children's products and their toy line Zolo is nothing short of fantastic! Inspired by EQ, the Theory of Emotional Intelligence and created with the guidance of child development experts, Zolo's toy design is said to stimulate the function of more brain cells than traditional baby products. 

  Winner of 5 awards and recommended for ages 0-100, Kushies Stacrobats Magnetic Stacking Acrobats help to build imagination, dexterity and independent play. From the cute figures right down to the carry case they come in, Stacrobats is an all-round winner. 

This fun set includes 5 fun and colorful magnetic figures, 3 magnetic balls and a powerful magnetic base which becomes the "stage platform". The base also doubles as a carrying case with a see through "window" and zipper closure. 

Both my 3-year-old and 9-month-old daughters had so much fun creating their own little Acrobatic circus! The stripes and bold colors grabbed my youngest daughter's attention and she was just as fascinated with the whole balancing concept as her older sister. 

Stacrobats also encourages:

·          Explorative play

·          Flexible thinking

·          Self-expression
           
·           Creativity 

·          Self-confidence

·          Hand & eye coordination


I have to say one of my favorite things about this toy is how everything fits neatly in the carrying case. Being able to bring something like this while traveling is definitely a bonus!

Thandie Newton Covers UK’s InStyle

Thandie Newton Covers UK's InStyle

Thandie Newton – mother of 9-year-old Ripley and 5-year-old Nico – graces the December cover of UK’s InStyle. The gorgeous 36-year-old Crash star talks about heading to yoga after dropping the kids off at school and keeping things professional with her hunky costars.

On having a svelte figure after having two kids: “That’s genetic! And I’m a Jivamukti yoga freak – it’s food for my soul. When I’m not working, I’ll drop Rip off at school and Nico at nursery, then I go to yoga. I also have an amazing personal trainer, who I see whenever I can.”

On if she’s ever thought “Ooh, if I wasn’t married…” with any of her hot male costars: “(laughs) Listen to you! I’ve never dated an actor, just had the odd fling. Isn’t that weird? I don’t flirt with people – a long time ago, I stopped using my sexuality to have a relationship with people. I don’t think you really get a sense of me, sexually, and that’s why I have really great relationships with straight men.”

Chantal Kreviazuk Balances Kids & Career

Chantal Kreviazuk Balances Kids & Career

Canadian singer and songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk is used to juggling the demands of family and fame. Despite her hectic schedule, the 35-year-old mom – she and her rocker hubby Raine Maida are parents to boys Rowan, Lucca and Salvador – says that motherhood has actually helped her creativity and her career.

“A couple of days ago I had four sessions in my home studio in one day,” Chantal tells the Vancouver Sun. “My husband was away and I was running all those sessions and minding my children – obviously with help – managing a dog with an infection, a child with a skin ailment that needed constant attention, another with a bronchial thing… Doing all that mom stuff, you have to be on it, and it made each session, I think, run smoother, because I knew what creatively had to happen with two hours there, four hours there. It was really quite incredible, and I don’t know that I could have done that without children.”

“I actually find that in some way having children renewed or replenished my hunger as an artist,” she adds.

    Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban’s Sunday Stroll

    Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban's Sunday Stroll

    Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban took their 15-month-old daughter Sunday for a stroll through a park in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday (November 3). Keith held onto a balloon while mama Nicole pushed Sunday in her Mountain Buggy Urban stroller.

    Nicole recently graced the cover of UK’s GQ and admitted that marriage to Keith is “a very extraordinary, adventurous place to be: incredibly raw, incredibly dangerous and you’re very much out at sea. You’re exposed. You could drown.”

    Scott Wolf Says Son Jack Is Always Smiling

    Scott Wolf Says Son Jack Is Always Smiling

    Former Party of Five star Scott Wolf recently told radio show host Billy Bush that he and wife Kelley have settled on calling their 7-month-old son Jack, and joked that his strong name might leave a lasting impression. “I think he’s either going to have to write something or he’s going to really enjoy bourbon and have a regular chair at a pub somewhere,” Scott says.

    The 41-year-old first-time dad couldn’t help but gush about his new little guy.

    I can not…put into words how great a person he is. He literally wakes up with a smile on his face and falls off to sleep with a smile on his face. There’s some crying here and there in between — he’s a human being too,” he says. “The kid seems to really love to be alive and he makes me feel like the funniest person on the planet.”

    Scott’s new show V premiered this week on ABC.
