Just got a shipment of orange Striders today!  Have you seen how fast some kids can move on these things?  It looks very fun…

These little “balance bikes” will give your 3-5 year old hours and hours of fun while they learn balance, steering, confidence, and control all without the aid of training wheels on traditional pedal bikes.  We have limited quantities available in orange, blue, green, and pink.  Imagine skipping the whole “training wheel” part of learning to ride a bike!

Striders have puncture proof tires and a light-weight steel frame and fork.  The seat is adjustable from 11″ to 16″ so your little easy rider can use their ride for this summer and next!

Check out the new Tugboat bath toy from Green Toys!

It comes in three different colour combinations and has a handle and a spout.  As if you needed an excuse to take another bath or a trip to the beach… or what about the kiddie-pool in the back yard!?  How about re-creating one of your favourite CBC kid’s television shows, Theodore Tugboat?

Best of all it’s made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic and contains no gross BPA, PVC, or phthalates so it’s super-safe and environmentally friendly.

(For more information about harmful chemicals in everyday plastic products check out Slow Death By Rubber Ducky. I try not to be alarmist but the information in this book is… alarming.)
