Training Dresser

How About This?

What do you think about a training dresser? The drawers are cleverly shaped like the appropriate clothing items. Even your youngest helper should be able to find the sock drawer.

It comes in two gender specific designs made from all kid-friendly components that are  hand crafted and packaged with care in Eastern Washington by the crew Mountain View Cabinetry.

Hats off, well shorts, shirts, socks and pants to designer Peter Bristol.

Girl's Training Dresser

Dresser drawers shaped like clothes

The Minimalist  Mom suggests “stop folding laundry!” She says

“with many loads of laundry washed every day, not folding t-shirts, jeans and underwear saved her hours a week.” With that concept and this dresser, children could be given freshly washed laundry that was never folded but  just sorted  right  into the drawers.

iPottyiPoo – uPoo Everybody Poo Poos

Oh my gosh, now there is a potty to go along with the title of my new book, the one I am writing for Team Totally.

After the last few weekends,  Annette, our sales manager,  will testify that poo and pee happens, and NOT in our restroom. What’s with parents thinking or “pretending”  that their child is potty trained?  Then expecting our team to clean it up?

While on the subject, what do you think about this for Wacky Wednesday? The iPotty!

The iPotty made its debut at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  It is a plastic potty for toddlers, which uses an adjustable rotating iPad stand to make the potty training process a little bit less terrible. (so they say)  Most importantly, it comes with a removable screen cover and splashguard to protect your iPad from accidental destruction. (so they say)

There’s a pee guard for the boys when being used as a potty.  Then a lid that turns the iPotty into a seat when potty time is over.   All of it comes apart for “easy cleaning.  (so they say)

The concept here is to get your toddler to stay on the iPotty for as long as it takes to get the job done.  NO, not available in an adult version. (yet)

iPotty closedIt is expected to be available in March with a $40. pricetag.

So…Betsy, opinion? Are we still holding out for the sticker chart, Cheerios and M&Ms? Or will you give Master O his own techno throne?

Extra long Bed

We get calls daily for extra long beds. Well…here it is!

If perhaps this is a bit “extra” long for you we have many others that may fit your needs.

Wilber Hall Loft Extra Long Bunk Beds

A popular extra long bunk bed is the Wilber Hall. It has a chill space under the bed where a futon has been added for additional sleep space.

Then we have the Extra Long Baxter, a rather magicical transforming bed. The desk pulls down to reveal a second bed.

Annie loves the new Strider

What would you do when your office mates Desirae and Michelle are off enjoying warm sunshine and sandy beaches? Pretend it’s summer! Annie, who  of course believes in safety first, dons her bike helmet before taking the cute little lime green Strider balance bike for a spin around the office.

The seat and handle bars are adjustable, but not high enough for you Annie. Did you know that you could win FREE tickets to the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Minneapolis this weekend? There will be many bikes there that would be a better fit Annie. If you are attending the show there will be a drawing for 5 FREE Strider balance bikes in the Strider Adventure Zone at the show.

Skip the trike and training wheels;  your little one will leave those other babies behind in the dust. Some moms and dads may train their kids to use training wheels, but Strider riders learn the thrill of the ride at a n early age. If your toddler can walk, your toddler can ride a Strider Balance Bike and never need  a tricycle. Plus, there are no training-wheel wobbles causing fear hesitancy, or dislike of bike riding. With a Strider, little riders learn balance and coordination. They can go as fast or slow as they like before learning the art of pedaling. This you’ll find helps them quickly develop confidence. Striders are ideal for children as young as 18 months and as old as 5 years with simple handlebar and saddle seat adjustments.

So…ditch that little trike and training wheels, and teach your child to ride a bike sooner and safer with a Strider.
