When it's cold outside and the kids need something to do...

I love pinterest. I love to see kids playing. I really do not like the cold. Recently I saw these awesome indoor paces for kids that incorporated "outdoor" play equipment into thoughtfully designed indoor play spaces for kids. Perfect for those who have busy active kids when the winter doldrums hit in February. Who wouldn't love a rope ladder incorporated into their bedroom, attic space or basement. Just make sure you have some padding! Check out these stylish and fun ways to incorporate swings, climbing ropes, rock climbing walls and rings.

Sweet Dreams for You and Baby, with the new Dream Diaper by Smart Bottoms

No one likes waking up in the middle of the night due to wet, cold pee soaked pj's and sheets. Not mom. Not dad.

Just after we found out about the release of the buffalo plaid print diaper by Smart Bottoms, I found these adorable buffalo plaid and red and black items by juDanzy! It made me seriously giddy. To top it off they are also perfect for Valentines Day outfits and photos! It was like it was meant to be....

A New Decade. A New Design.

Hop Scotch children’s store opened in 2005 with a unique mission, to provide quality educational toys and gifts that were handmade in Michigan and to provide a connection for its customers with the community and the people who made the goods we offered. Shortly after opening, we expanded our offerings to include organic clothing, cloth diapers, and baby carriers in order to meet the demand of the community. We were passionate about these products that were known only on the “fringe” of parenting circles. Fast forward 10 years. Facebook, twitter, instagram and pinterest have made it possible for parents and...
