DRMY & Discovery Toys Open House

Save the date! Saturday, December 1st will be an open house from 10 am to 1 pm. Many DRMY and Discovery Toys items will be on sale. If you can’t make it then just drop me a line and we’ll set up an appointment.

Some of my favorites that I know you will love the sale price on are:

tlc_rev_large.jpg TLC ~ Grow with Me. This is what happens when you nurture a child’s creativity: she learns responsibility, patience, and how to make something grow. Creative outlets like these—if it’s a craft, or caring for a plant—are vital for preschool-age children who are encountering for the first time the kind of abstract thinking processes that need to be explored, expressed, and encouraged.

frod_a_dancing_large.jpgFrog Went A-Dancing. The more your toddler moves, the more learning takes place in his mind. Research shows a strong link between moving hands and legs and the creation of new neural networks in the brain. So dance along with every animal in the book!

dreamland_l.jpg Putumayo World Music’s Dreamland. One thing we have in common, the whole world over, is sleepy children. They rub their eyes, they get a little cranky—time for bed! And nothing’s nicer to transition them to dreamland than songs created just for that time of day. This CD offers one soothing, bedtime tune after another—for a sleepy child or stressed adult.
amazing_travel_large.jpgAmazing Travel Fun for Kids on the Go! Buckle up for fun! Pack this little gem of a travel kit for everything you’ll need to keep the family happy! This kit is small enough to fit under the seat, but is packed with a CD featuring road trip classics plus a book, and an activity set of state trivia, mazes, stories, word searches, logic games, singing games, fun facts, art activities, and even a U.S. map are all part of this never-ending boredom-busting collection.

Saturday, December 1st I will be having an open house from 10 am to 1 pm. Many DRMY and Discovery Toys items will be on sale. If you can’t make it then just drop me a line and we’ll set up an appointment. The rest of the week I’ll be highlighting some of my favorites. Which ones do you love?

Kindermusik Road Trips

Spring Break is upon us, and many of you are probably planning road trips to see Grandma and Grandpa or a family vacation. It often seems hard to keep little ones happy on such long car or airplane rides. Let me suggest a little Kindermusik for the road. You’d be amazed how much time a Kindermusik CD or two and a few of your favorite activities can fill.

Tips:

– Load up your CD player or iPod/MP3 Player with Kindermusik or DRMY! Favorites.
– Give every activity a try. You might be surprised at which ones appeal on the road. One mom said she was shocked to find out that those same “Warm-Up Exercises” from the Village class she can’t ever get her little guy to sit still for brough peals of laughter when he was constrained in a carseat!
– Don’t be afraid to shout out a little Kindermusik in the airport. People love it, and anyone would much rather see a singing, giggling child than one who is whining or fussing. (Yes, some have been known to break into actual Kindermusik dances while waiting to board a plane. Anything to keep a crying 5-month-old soothed. And it worked!)
– Use your favorite lullabies to help soothe your little one to sleep.

Here is a great new travel set for the older kids from DRMY! See all the great new spring things HERE.

Brandon’s Class

On Friday I went in and did a special music class with Brandon’s 4 year old preschool class. I gave him lots of different ideas of themes we could use but he would only hear of doing the new Do-Re-Me & You! version of the Three Little Pigs.

We had lots of fun singing, dancing and playing instruments with a great new version of a classic story!
