Selecting an educational toy for children that keeps them engaged can be challenging. With the right tools, you can make the toy shopping experience a lot less stressful.
How do you know if your tween or child is ready for her first bra? It depends — companies make training bras for girls ages 5 or 6 up to teenage sizes. All girls develop at different rates, and it's up to each girl and her family to decide when it's time to go first-bra shopping. Some good indicators that your girl has reached training bra age is that she's expressing interest in getting one. Beginning with lightly lined bras is an easy way to introduce girls to the basics of dressing as an adult, and it's OK to let her practice (or "train") even if she isn't quite ready for the real thing. Even if your girl hasn't let you know she's in the market for a bra, it might be time to buy her first bra if she's noticeably developing, experiencing pain from lack of support or starting to be active in sports. We've rounded up great training bras for tweens, from sports bras to bralettes, from retailers like Walmart, Target, Justice and Yellowberry.

Beautiful yet strange this night was. Often, when I could not sleep, I would get up, go outside into the fresh air and ponder the ...gazillion stars overhead. I think most people's imagination comes alive when one walks in the dark. As I meandered slowly through the forest, something distracted the corner of my eye. I saw what looked to be a very small person just ahead of me. I quickly followed this little being but could not keep up. Startling me, he suddenly jumped smack dab in my path. My heart raced considerably, for I had never seen any living thing that looked quite like him. The little fellow standing in front of me smiled, extended his rather large hand and said, "Hi John. I'm Moffee, Moffee Vicket." An unusual name, I thought. But the question was how did he know my name? At times when I looked at Moffee, it seemed as though he was taller or shorter than at other times; but always proportionate for the situation. He was very pudgy and had a comforting and disarming countenance about him. Even though I didn't speak my thoughts out loud, Moffee turned toward me and said, "Gnomes are supposed to be pudgy." And he laughed. After very little conversation, one could tell he was quite serious about the enjoyment of life. Moffee bid me to walk with him, and so my life changing story began. read more
