When it comes to capturing moments GoPro is one of the top contenders out there! The Hero 5 Black is still relatively new since its release, but the newest addition is their Quik Stories that goes with their camera.

It’s safe to say that all kids hate “Boo Boo’s”. Your little boy may love to act like Tarzan from time to time, but when little boys get hurt (or boys of all ages) that macho man mentality quickly fades. Especially when they’re sick! This is why we love these Scab Bandages that provide a strong and comfortable hold, while stopping the bleeding and adding a little character to your kids injury! They have a variety of different boxes to choose from to determine how gross your little one wants his scab to look.

Let’s face it… Kids grow up too fast. You could’ve sworn that you’re child was just running around in diapers last year and now he or she is graduating high school. As parents, sometimes we don’t have all the time in the world to capture and log every moment by lugging around our cameras or writing down details on a pen and pad. Better yet… Although scrap-booking is always a cute idea, who actually sits down and spends the time cutting and pasting into a photo book? Good thing there’s an App for all those things that we just mentioned and it’s a good one. It’s called Tinybeans. As Forbes Magazine said, “Tiny beans is a platform for parents to celebrate and share the small and beautiful details of raising their family”. With Tinybeans you can records photo’s, video’s, and notes. Keep track of developmental milestones and achievements, while sharing your kids journals and photo’s in a safe and PRIVATE social network. Give this App a try. It won’t break the bank since it’s free!

Nickelodeon used to be unrivaled when it came to children’s television content. There was Doug, Rugrats, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Hey! Arnold, and the list can go on and on. But the one show that is perfect for the Halloween season (even before Monsters Inc.) is Aaahh!!! Real Monsters. With all the different ways to watch TV Shows these days we provided an Amazon link where you could stream or download the episodes made by Nickelodeon. We’re sure you can find them other ways as well like Netflix or iTunes (cough…cough…maybe Youtube) but we will leave what service you like most up to you. If you’re a 90’s kid you know exactly what this show is…unless you weren’t living on this planet at the time or you weren’t into only the best kids network ever at that time. Either way it will be good to bring back the sweet monsters Krumm, Oblina, and Ickis.

This week we would like to showcase films and shows that make us throw covers over our heads. Nothing too scary because we focus primarily on children, but we’d like to start off by mentioning this classic. Remember not feeding your little pet past midnight or else they would transform into a menacing creature? We do… And it’s all thanks to Gremlins! The film was made in 1984 and, although it may be out of date, it still holds up when it comes to fantasy/comedy/horror films that children may be able to handle. We’d like to think of it like a Denice the Menace for monsters. If you’ve never seen this film before check it out! If you have and you feel like your kid could handle the cuteness of Gizmo (top right) and the destruction of Stripe (bottom right) then this may be the perfect film for the family. Just remember to avoid bright lights and water… Or else… Muahahaha…
