Toys R Us unveils $150 Tabeo tablet for kids - Sep. 10

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) The Tabeo, which features a 7-inch screen and a Wi-Fi connection, will be available at Toys R Us stores starting October 21. The $149.99 tablet is also available for online pre-order starting Monday. The tablet comes pre-loaded with 50 child-friendly apps, and an additional 7,000 free apps are available to download. It runs on Google's (GOOG, Fortune 500) Android operating system. The device is wrapped in a soft "bumper" to protect the hardware if it falls out of a child's slippery fingers. If a sneakier child accesses the Internet through a browser other than the Tabeo's built-in one, parents can choose to receive an email alert. The Tabeo joins a handful of other tablets aimed at children, including VTech's InnoTab, Meep from Oregon Scientific, the Nabi and LeapFrog's LeapPad.

It's also the latest in a new crop of 7-inch tablets. 10 Paper Lantern (More Colors) - US$ 1. The Kid's Summer Camp that Gets Results. ...

There are times when I finish a project and I am absolutely giddy to share it with you here. This was one of those! The idea for these bins came about as I was brainstorming projects for the Upcycling challenge at So You Think You’re Crafty a couple of weeks ago. I have been in dire need of some new containers for the built-in shelves in our living room to hold things like DVD’s and remotes, but I wasn’t wanting to spend a fortune on them.

It occurred to me that a diaper box had precisely the dimensions I was looking for, so I determined myself to figure out a way to gussy them up to suit my needs! In case you missed it, here is the blurb from SYTYC… Over the years, my household has acquired an abundance of two things in particular: 1) little items that need to be stored away in some semblance of order; and 2) diaper boxes. What began as three diaper boxes became in just a couple of hours a chic collection of lined, numbered canvas bins. How to raise the next Steve Jobs.

Genius, Defined. Toddler Development Through Play. By Dr. Tanya Byron BSc, MSc, PsychD Movement Activities Most childhood games, involving walking, running, jumping, and climbing, are useful for the development of the large movements of the body. All your toddler needs is a safe place to play and explore without too much restricted movement, and the knowledge that her carer is not too far away. Children are “all-weather” creatures and will really benefit from fresh air and a change of scene. Walking on grass or sand, jumping on and off a step, walking, running (and later rolling) up and down hills, and crawling through tunnels, help children to strengthen their muscles and their reflexes.Swings, slides, and balancing are all fantastic for encouraging brain development.

Real-Life Secret Playroom Through a Narnia-Like Wardrobe & Dornob. Sorry, lion and witch sold separately. ?

Maple Seed Renovation specializes in custom projects, seeking “the balance of excellent design, well-executed craftsmanship, and natural materials” ?

- hence, it should come as no surprise that the hidden space fits so beautifully in its context, and could be ‘just another vintage furnishing’ in this home. Within the dresser, there is an opening to the recreational space beyond but also shelves on one side to store games and toys that the children can take with them when they enter, and still leave ‘inside’ when they exit. It may not be Narnia, but it could be as close as reality gets. Nick Brandt - Zebras Turning Heads, Ngorongoro Crater - Artwork details at...
