Getting out of the house to run some errands or meet a friend for lunch with baby in tow can at times seem like a Herculean effort.

Her creations started out as a hobby, turned into a business in 2010 and now, for reasons beyond my comprehension, have actually become a hit.

Classic toy makers are running scared of a new trend emerging in holiday gift giving: Parents are giving their kids--as young as 3 years old!--high-tech devices like iPads and Kindles instead of the regular wood, rubber or plastic toys that us parents were used to getting as kids.

These days, it seems like little girls act way more grown up than I did when I was younger. Even in their toddler years, they already know how to use cell phones, have a penchant for wearing mini high-heels and do all sorts of adult-like things that I feel like I didn't even know about when I was the same age. And now, a blog called the Alpha Parent has captured this trend by listing a ridiculous multitude of "beautifying" toys for young girls.
Seriously, I didn't even know this many little purse/handbags/pretend lipsticks existed! Now, the question is, are these toys even appropriate for kids?Continue Reading >
