It’s only natural for parents to think every scribble or brush stroke their child creates is a masterpiece, but if you are anything like me that means you have stacks of masterpieces you don’t know how to archive for safekeeping. A company called inkubook can help you create a classic bound book of art and photo memories that will give all those creations a worthy home. All you have to do is scan the pages, save them as a jpg, png, or gif file and upload them to the inkubook website.Prices start at $14 for a 20-page softcover book and $25 for a hardcover, but playing around with the book design on the site is free. It also offers a great volume pricing option, which is perfect if you want to make books to give as gifts for the holidays!

Make your tot’s next coloring project 3D! This doll house size cottage is made from recycled materials and is easy to put together for an afternoon of fun and creative energy. Instead of yet another picture on the refrigerator, your tot will be proud to have this displayed in the foyer for all to see when they come to the house for the holidays. You can even get crafty and get fake snow and tiny Christmas lights to be festive. Of course, I am throwing that out there when I, myself, am not at all crafty and would never be able to pull that off. But Auntie can come over and make this into a super fun project! At uncommen goods for only $20.

Can’t keep your kid seated at the dinner table? Maybe you should give Tribal Green’s Tot-Tye a tug. The organic cotton device ($28) ties children to their seats with two straps.
For parents in a bind, the Tot-Tye may provide temporary relief, but some wee ones would probably still manage to wiggle their way out of the restraint.
What do you think of the Tot-Tye?

This new stroller designed by Worrell is the coolest thing I have ever seen. It is not out yet, it is only in the design phase and they have no time line for the launch. Which means, all our kids will be out of strollers by the time it comes out. The only information I have on this right now is that it will be affordable, it is extremely light and very versatile. Although from these pictures it is hard to see how versatile it can be and it looks so big! Even collapsed the chassis looks bulky. The outer “shell” is all neoprene and will come in many customizable colors. The baby hammock looks like fun but I’m not sure how well it will do after a feeding, looks like throw up central to me. Other than those minor details, this is one of the most original concepts for strollers. It is about time they reinvent the wheel for strollers, I love my bugaboo but have yet to find the one absolutely most perfect stroller (and I have 3).
