The long, carefree days of summer have begun, with seemingly endless sunshine for outdoor fun. However, a few rainy days are always sprinkled in when families find themselves stuck indoors. Days of inclement weather provide the perfect opportunity for parents to bond with their kiddos, whether it be with lively board games, addictive puzzles, music-appreciation, or make-believe storytelling. The Giggle Guide® presents entertaining toys and games from Uncle Skunkle Toys, JOOJOO, House of Marbles and P’kolino, that keep kids learning and bring families together for a refresher course in focusing on fun!

Mixing rainy days with children can be a recipe for disaster. When kids are stuck indoors, they get antsy, loud, and BORED! Cooped up kids are dangerous to family health, as they push just the right buttons to drive parents crazy, or at least to distraction. Retailers to the rescue! Help families quickly cool down the kids’ cabin fever with entertaining products from The Little Experience, eebee, GIANTmicrobes, and Buckyballs. With a surplus of tedium tamers on hand, your business will be on your customers’ list of “fun places to go,” and they will happily spend extra time and money in your store.

Our first Baby Shop Hop (www.babyshophop.com) is due September 1, 2010, but our newest event wouldn’t be complete without a chance to give back to the community that makes our Shop Hops possible! For each logo found and clicked on during the Baby Shop Hop we will make a donation to a charity.

Which charity, you ask? That’s for YOU to help us decide. Starting June 1, Shop Hop Productions launched their “Charity Select” contest.

Young artists usually have their first private showing on the famous gallery known as The Refrigerator, in homes across the country. However, second-grader Liv Larson’s parents loved their daughter’s creations so much, they transformed them into a collection of delightful greeting cards, Liv Notes! The overall response to Liv’s art was so positive, that the Larson family realized they were onto something special.

Preschooler’s brains develop and form synapses at a rate that astounds scientists and parents alike! Every brain literally contains more neurons than there are stars in the sky, and each neuron has the ability to form connections through learning. Preschoolers love to soak up an astonishing amount of information, so it is the perfect time to introduce them to the wonderful world of learning through the playful examination of books. The World Almanac for Kids Puzzler Deck: Trucks, Trains & More! from Chronicle Books is the perfect introduction to give children a jump-start on the learning road of life.
