HearthSong Teaching Cash Register Review/ $50.00 Gift Card Review/Giveaway "Holiday Gift Guide 2011"

My kids love to use their imagination all of the time. One thing that they love to do is pretend that one is working on a cash register and the other one is shopping. The only problem is, they only have a typical toy cash register that lacks any kind of real features. I am a mom that loves educational games and toys, I encourage my kids to play them. As their mom, I get the benefit of watching them learn and being preoccupied at the same time. When I was given the chance to review an item from HearthSong I was super excited at the selection that they are offering on their site. One of which was an amazing Teaching Cash Register, which I knew would be a hit with my kids.

Creativity For Kids / Faber-Castell Monster Trucks Custom Shop Review/Giveaway "Holiday Gift Guide 2011"

My kids love to be creative with arts and crafts. So, we try to take time a few times each week and spend time as a family doing arts and crafts. This allows us to be able to make happy memories together. Although, I am sure my kids would enjoy doing things other than that which include just paper, glue and glitter. This is where Creativity for Kids / Faber-Castell comes into play. They offer enjoyable arts and crafts for both boys and girls which allow them to have fun with while exercising the creative 'muscle' of their imagination. They have things from books, jewelry, cars, tattoos, dolls, animals, robots and more. I was delightfully surprised at the options Creativity for Kids / Faber-Castell offered.

About the company:**********In 1976 Phyllis Brody and Evelyn Greenwald, the founders of Creativity for Kids, had a dream that their unique concept of enriching, open-ended creative activities would inspire children all around the world.  With hard work, a dedicated mission and respected friendships along the way, their dream became reality.
