Kid Stuff

Where to buy it – various categories of children’s products online:

Little girl sitting with her teddy bear

Shopping Online for Girls' Toys (All Ages) It's not a difficult chore to find just any toys for kids, but finding really good ones that they will likely love and play with is another story. You can go into any discount or department store and see toys prominently displayed just about any time of the […] Read More...

Happy boy on swing

When it comes to shopping for kids' toys, I have no shortage of online experience. Not only am I a mother (and shopper of toys for other people's kiddos), but in a sense, I have actually been doing this as my occupation for about 8 years as of this writing. Given that, for anyone out there […] Read More...

Boy playing with RC car

It seems like it would be a simple enough matter - buying a remote control vehicle for a child. However, when it comes to doing the actual shopping, I have found out that there are quite a number of RC vehicles that are not necessarily for kids, that are mixed in with a "kids toys" […] Read More...

Two kids playing at playhouse

Kids, kids, kids.  Yep, I am jealous of 'em - I absolutely love the toys that are available these days, and would have obsessed over one of today's outdoor playhouses when I was a little girl.  Sigh. But I digress. Given the fact that my occupation mainly involves researching, writing about and looking up toys for kids, I […] Read More...

NERF logo

NERF blasters are one of those types of items that when you shop in a single discount or department store, the sheer number of different types might be completely missed - at least in my experience, when I go to a Walmart, Target, or other store, while there are some really cool NERF guns there, […] Read More...

Father teaching his son to ride a bike

There is quite a bit that goes into shopping for and choosing a good bike for a child. Size, experience level, the individual boy or girl's sense of adventure and individual taste can all be factors.  But there is one thing that most kids have in common - the sense of fun and freedom that go along with […] Read More...

Two little girls sitting in front of a large wooden playhouse

I love outdoor playhouses - especially when constructed from wood. These little "homes" are more lifelike and cozier than their plastic counterparts.  Kids love them too - there may be nothing better than having your very own private space to play and pretend. The subject of wooden playhouses for kids is one that I am […] Read More...

4 toddlers riding balance bikes

Especially for toddlers, it is important for parents and otherwise shoppers to choose bicycles that are not only fun, but safety is even more of a factor with kids in this age group. Also - for kids just learning how to ride a bike, there are versions of toddler bicycles that are better than others […] Read More...

7 year old boy wearing rollerblades

As is true with other ages of boys, there are some online resources that are better than others for buying toys for boys age 7. However, there is some variance in finding them and where - boys at this age are sort of moving out of the realm of "little kids" toys and moving on […] Read More...

Two little kids tossing LEGOs in the air

Among all categories of children's toys, there is very likely no more loved and looked-for than LEGOs.  We see them when we go into Walmart, Target, Kohls and other places ("brick and mortar" stores) - so we know that they are not difficult to find.  Not by a long shot - generally speaking, that is.
