My son, attending a Zoom meeting with his class.
(This went exactly as well as you think it did.)
First of all, I have got to encourage you to watch Jimmy Fallon’s home broadcasts, because for reals, he is all of us trying to work from home right now.
We need allllll the child-entertaining things. Tomorrow morning, I’ll be Skype-ing live into KTLA and talking about a few fun new kids’ products, so I thought I’d post them here for you guys, too.
- Plus-Plus Big 90-Piece Set ($29.99): This massive construction set lets kids create 2-D mosaic designs or more intricate 3-D builds, so it’s great for a wide variety of ages (the large pieces are easy for even toddlers to grasp).
- iPlay iLearn Bouncy Hopping Unicorn ($29.99): Get those wiggles out…on a unicorn! This ride-on is obviously adorable, but the best part about it is that it’s an inflatable with a machine-washable cover – so you can keep it clean, and also put it away in between uses.
- iPlay iLearn Kids’ Bowling Set ($23.99): This bowling set helps develop gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and balance – and is made of high-grade foam rubber, so it’s safe for indoor use.
- Educational Insights Design & Drill® Bolt Buddies™ Rocket ($24.99): Kids can practice fine motor skills while learning the fundamentals of construction and engineering. (And the retro design is super fun.)
- eBlox Circuit Box 59 ($21.99): Kids can use this set to learn all about electricity, current and voltage. It includes 59 different projects – including how lights, alarms, motors, switches and more work – and is good for hours of educational play.
- B4 Adventure Cosmic Mini Golf ($119.99): We have this, and they LOVE it. This golf course can be used indoor or out, can be configured in tons of different ways (so it doesn’t get boring), and even has LED lights for nighttime play. And it all packs up into a surprisingly small bag, so it’s not a huge space-eater when not in use.
