I can't believe I haven't blogged about these before.  These are some of Mr. H and Ms. E favorite toys.  Well to be more specific-These are Mr. H's toys...Ms. E just likes to play with them too!  So what exactly is a Zoomorph?  I would compare it to Lego's but with animals.  You can build it just like the package shows or you can create your own. 
Each Package comes with specific animals and all the components to create them.  There are night crawlers, dinosaurs, zoo animals...lots of sets to choose from. 
You can build the animals any way you want...just check out these creations below.   

My kids have the best imagination!!! I love finding toys to help them exercise this.  They come up with fun games, names, and stories to go with each animal.

Institute a Family Game Night!

My family LOVES to play games.  It all started with Shad and I back in college.  We use to host game nights at the house...well the truth is that when we met Shad was hosting a poker game every week for a bunch of guys....Well when I came along I didn't want to be one of the we started having a game night with girls and guys.  It was so much fun.  Then when ever Shad and I traveled we brought along cards to play.  Now with our kids we do the same thing, although not often enough! 
Here is my latest addiction and I can't wait to introduce my family to it.  Tenzi...Each Tenzi game comes with 4 sets of dice...and this CHEESY video on how to play. 

I will post another video of real families playing that isn't so CHEESY but I can't figure out how to get it on this same post. 
So if your family loves games or if you are wanting to start a family game night...this is a GREAT game to start with...from 4-99 EVERYONE can play!!!

BK's Hair Ties

 A few months ago my bestie and I were talking and she told me about her daughter's new business.  "WAIT a minute...did you say business?"  Well to make a long story is their story. 
What do most 8 and 9 year olds do at a sleep over? Play games? Watch movies? For most yes, except for two special girls, Blair and Kensley. They came up with a plan to change the world.

They created a type of hair tie and headband which they creatively called BK's. They then came up with a logo, Facebook page and email. And with the support of their families, Kensley and Blair put their plan to action.

What’s their vision? It's simple. Make BK’s, sell them and donate the money to people in need. They then picked a different charity/organization for each month and are now racing toward their goal to change the world for the better.

Yes it was that simple. You see someone in need, you help them.

With your purchase and support, Blair and Kensley are changing the world $1 at a time.

How it works:

You purchase an assortment of hair ties and headbands.

$1 from each hair tie and $2 from each headband go toward the charity/organization of the month.

These to exceptional young ladies spend their free time working to change the world.  They are lead by great examples in their mama's.  I just couldn't be prouder of them. 

B and K...Annabeth is here supporting you every step of the way.  You both make my heart smile.  StorkLand and Kids Too is proud to announce that you can now help BK's Hair Ties change the world $1 at a time right here in Wichita Falls.  We have a jar of hair ties and headbands...hand made with love and commitment by B and K.  These girls have amazing taste and style.  You will love what they have selected for you.

If you know me at know that I ALWAYS have a pair of sunglasses on top of my head...Day or Night.  1. It holds my hair back and 2. My eyes are super sensitive to sun light. 
Sunlight can be so damaging to a child's eyes.  I have found myself fussing at my kiddo's about looking at the sun...especially on the way to school.  It just seems like the light is blinding. 

So here is my newest addiction..BABIATORS!!! These glasses are not only too cool...but very affordable, safe, and warrantied....who gives a warranty with kids sunglasses...well they do!

This is directly from their website. 
When babies grab onto something, where’s the first place it goes? Their mouths! That’s why it’s imperative that anything made for young children be safe – and that’s the idea behind Babiators flexible rubber frame design.
We test every shipment to ensure that Babiators comply with the most stringent regulations in the world for BPA, phthalates, lead, and other metals. Our top quality 100% UVA and UVB protection lenses are also impact and shatter-resistant.
So when you buy Babiators, you can rest assured that you are buying the best sunglasses out there for your little one!


Babiators are incredibly durable – our flexible rubber frames consistently bounce back after being bent, twisted, or sat upon!


Babiators are available in two sizes (Ages 0-3 and Ages 3-7+) and ten awesome colors: Black Ops Black, Blue Angels Blue, Rockstar Red, Princess Pink, Wicked White, Superstar Silver, Nighthawk Navy, Beach Baby Blue, Limelight Lime, and Sneak Attack Pink & Black.
Designed by an F-18 fighter pilot for your little aviator, Babiators are sure to make your child the Maverick of the playground!


What is the most common complaint about children’s sunglasses:
“My child will break or lose them!”
We’re pretty darn sure your Babiators won’t break, and we believe that protecting kids’ eyes is too important to overlook simply because sunglasses might get lost. That’s why if a child's Babiators are lost or broken, we will replace them!
UV Protection!
Babiators protect your child's eyes at a critical time – Babiators’ lenses offer 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays.
Why should we be concerned about protecting our children’s eyes from UV exposure? Children’s sensitive skin needs sunscreen to limit dangerous UV exposure and their eyes need protection too. Here are the facts:
  • When compared to adult’s eyes, children’s eyes have fewer natural protections against UV exposure, making them more likely to be damaged.
  • The more time you spend outdoors, the more susceptible you are to sun damage. Published scientific research concludes that up to 50% of lifetime UV ray exposure may occur by age 18, so it’s imperative that we protect our children’s eyes now!
  • According to Dr. J. Keller Wortham, a physician with Optimum Wellness Family Medical Group in Los Angeles, excessive exposure to the sun during daily activities can contribute to cataract formation, macular degeneration, pinguecula and pterygium (growth on the eye's surface), photokeratitis (snow blindness), and skin cancer on the eyelids. Those are a lot of big words, but the bottom line is this: protecting your children's eyes is critical.
  • The EPA recommends you wear sunglasses even on days with a low UV index!
Given that children’s eyes do not have as many natural protections from UV, children spend more time in the sun than adults, and time in the sun can lead to permanent eye damage, we feel it just makes sense for kids to wear sunglasses!
When it’s bright outside, adults wear sunglasses – our children should do the same!

Right now I don't have these available on our website because they are going to sell like hot cakes and I don't want to be out of a color that someone might order...(no real time inventory for this mom and pop store)  That being said please feel free to give us a call 940-766-1234 and we will do the sale right over the phone and ship them out for you the same day.

Nested Bean - Zen Swaddle

The Nested Bean-Zen Swaddle has just arrived at our Wichita Falls store and will soon be in OKC and Tyler.  You all know how passionate I am about swaddling.  Swaddling totally saved my sanity with Ms. E and Mr. H. 
I think that the Zen Swaddle is so unique in its design and totally solves and issue that lots of moms and babies have.  Watch the video above for a great overview of this really cool product. 
There used to be a really neat product on the market called the Zacky...It was a weighted hand that you could put on baby to simulate mom or dads touch.  I thought it was cool but lacking in some areas...the Zen Swaddle takes that concept a step further with adding the simulation of touch to a swaddle.  Of course we know that nothing can replace our loving touch but anything we can do to help pacfi baby for a couple extra hours of sleep (aka: sanity) is a great thing.
