We were recently invited to explore iPlay America in Freehold, NJ. I had heard so many amazing reviews which is why I was beyond excited for our visit. From the moment we entered the complex, we were in awe. There is so much to see, do, and explore for all ages. iPlay offers hours of fun and excitement! One of the things I really love about iPlay is the theming. I truly felt like I was down the shore walking in out of the arcades and exploring the boardwalk. From the decorations to the lamp posts to the facade outside each room, it was truly a unique experience. Even though there were tons of ..read more

Play, Learn, and Grow with Infantino

As parents, we are always looking for the best products for our kids. Is it safe? Is it durable? Will my child love it? These are questions we ask ourselves when purchasing a new toy or product for the most important person in our lives. Another question I always ask myself is, “Will it enhance development?” Many toys can keep a child engaged, but they don’t all foster learning. I believe that toys, travel, and experiences should encourage a love of learning, which is why I started Mommy University. I wanted to share these ideas with all of you. Infantino has become a household name when it co ..read more

I am so excited to partner with several amazing toy companies to bring you this year’s Play and Learn Holiday Gift Guide. Since even before I was a parent, when I purchased a toy for a child, I made sure it had a purpose. For me, a toy has to encourage learning, development and growth in some way otherwise what is the point? Toys and games should stimulate the brain, make kids think and reason and/or spark the imagination. Children learn through play so we have to make sure that play is meaningful! After careful consideration, I have come up with a list of some of my favorite toys that you are ..read more
