Game of Thrones frenzy is at an all time high as fans get ready to bid farewell to the Seven Kingdoms with the final season. As we gear up for the last episode ever (OMG!) we've rounded up some great baby gifts to keep the battle raging on! While we know this is not a show for kids, we do know you get just a few years to dress your kids in whatever you want to before they start to have their own opinion. These gifts include funny onesies, character blankets and more! We've rounded up the fiercest gifts for your little Arya or Jon Snow.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.
You signed your aspiring wide receiver up for football. Now what? Finding the best football cleat that's touchdown-worthy—no pressure. Don't worry, Nike has you covered when it comes to providing a reliable cleat and safety gear that you'll need to get your little athlete's football career started.
Choosing a reliable football cleat for your child can help prevent injuries and further their ability to achieve their goals at such a young age. Whether your active kiddo dreams of being the next Carson Wentz or Rob Gronkowski, start from the ground up. Be sure to choose a cleat that gives their ankles the support they need, helping them look and feel good on and off the field. Not only will you find your child in the end zone quite frequently while wearing the Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 Football Cleat, but you'll also feel like a true winner knowing your player is safe and secure breaking through tackles and jumping for interceptions.
School's out, and as the temperatures start to heat up, creating a summer reading list is a cool way for parents to connect with their kids and foster a love of learning. This month, Save the Children has launched a reading campaign, 100 Days of Reading, to get kids excited about books.
"Knowing what's at stake for children in America in terms of summer learning loss was a motivating factor for Save the Children to create this easy-to-do 100 Days of Reading campaign," said Carolyn Miles, CEO of Save the Children. "Read a Story, Change Their Story has the potential to make transformational change for children. We've set an ambitious goal to log 100 million minutes of reading this summer to benefit every child and hope you'll join us."
We've rounded up a list of page-turners by age group to entertain your kiddos and make them want to pick up a book and not put it down during the lazy days of summer. Help Save the Children reach 100 million minutes by logging your reading time together with the kids.
Allergies come in all shapes and sizes, from seasonal airborne allergens to food triggers. While more widespread but not as life-threatening, airborne allergens like dust, pet dander, pollen or mold may leave your little one with red itchy eyes, congestion, or trouble breathing if they have asthma. On the other hand, if you have a child with a food allergy or sensitivity, then your main goal is to prevent cross contamination for their safety.
From allergen-free kitchen tools to an anti-allergen technology vacuum, we've rounded up items from Amazon and Walmart that will give parents a hand in protecting their child while they cope with any allergy.
Whether you want to read along with your child or gift it to a kid who's too shy to ask questions, books can be a great resource for teaching children about their changing bodies, relationships and emotions. From sexual education and child development experts, real parents and the help of real children, these are the best books about sexuality and the human body for children of all ages, from retailers like Amazon, Target and Walmart.
We all know that tech devices can help simplify our lives. From something as easy as being able to take a picture on your cell phone to home devices that can tell us the weather with a touch of a button (or just simply by asking verbally). But tech can also help our kids out, too! In fact, Verizon helps make it easy for kids to get online safely with great tablets, smart watches and phones. And if you're worried about your kids' safety as they browse the web or play on their phone, Verizon helps cover that too! With plans that are catered toward families, smartphones that track your child's location and add restrictions like content filters, you can rest assured that your child's tech devices are safe for them to use.
The My Verizon and My Verizon Smart Family apps track your child's phone location and usage right from your very own device. It's a helpful way to stay on top of what your kid is doing on the web. The Smart Family app allows you to add up to 20 trusted contacts to your child's phone that they can reach whenever, regardless of restrictions. You can also limit how many texts are sent and received. Track how your kids are spending time online with the Web and App Activity feature and keep tabs on your child's location via a GPS locator. It also allows you to add content filters to block certain apps and websites. Parents will love that they have the ability to add usage limits and even pause the internet! Plus using the app is simple—just pair your device with your kid's device using the Smart Family companion app and you're ready to get started!
Below we explore the devices and plans that make Verizon one of the best wireless carriers for families!
