Fun Toys for Your Other Baby!

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Looking back on my childhood, I can’t remember a time when there wasn’t some type of pet in the house. From three dogs to two cats (there was a hamster stint somewhere between the two), it’s safe to say my family was always a pack of animal lovers.

When I got the invite to attend Rolf C. Hagen’s showing of pet products, I couldn’t pass the chance to spot cool items for furry friends (and play with some kitties and puppies in the process)! Here are my favorites:

Catit Line
Want to get your feline active? Consider investing in the Senses series of toys. They can be set up like a race track with fun obstacles and resting points along the way. Kitty will love swatting the glowing balls as they pass through the elevated tunnels of the Super Roller Circuit. After play, naps can commence on the Comfort Zone, featuring a massager, catnip holder, and cushion that can be cooled. There’s plenty more Senses stations you can add to the track as well!

Dogit Line
Nothing beats toys that multitask. Chew bones from Hagen’s GUMI collection double as teeth cleaners and breath fresheners, so Fido can keep his gums healthy during playtime. They come in mini, medium and large versions, too, for dogs of every size. When it comes to washing his bowl, the Design Dog Dish makes cleaning simple. Just lift the stainless steel piece out; no need to carry everything to the sink. Bonus: it’s dishwasher safe. Plus, the wood finish is much more decorative than the average dog bowl.

And because I can’t resist sharing cute cat pictures, meet Bastian, a 4-month-old kitten brought to demonstrate products. The Hagen event sponsored New York’s Animal Haven shelter, home to this little guy and other critters on scene. With products approved by pets themselves, it’s clear Hagen knows how to reach babies of the animal variety.

Take Your Kid to A Broadway Show—For Free

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Since my daughter is obsessed with theatre, I’m always looking for good deals on tickets—and Kids’ Night on Broadway in New York City is a bargain. This annual event (which runs from February 25 to March 3) allows you to get a free kids’ ticket with the purchase of an adult seat. It essentially amounts to half-price tickets, which are hard to come by for popular, rarely discounted shows like Wicked and The Lion King. Other good choices for 6- to 10-year-olds include Newsies, Mary Poppins, and Annie. Tickets go on pre-sale today for members of the Broadway Fan Club (it’s free to join) and, on Monday, the tickets will be open to the public. (If you don’t snag seats today, additional tickets will be available next week.) Another plus: During Kids’ Night shows, mini theatre-goers get to meet some of the actors and take part in activities. If you don’t live in the New York area, still check out the website for Kids’ Night events nationwide throughout 2013.

Interview: New York Yankees’ CC Sabathia Talks Baseball and Fatherhood

Friday, September 30th, 2011

CC and Family

Tonight is officially the start of playoff season for Major League Baseball! One of the most watched games this evening will be between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers.

On the mound for the Yankees at 8:37 P.M. ET tonight will be CC Sabathia. We were lucky enough to get an interview with the pitching ace and his wife. CC talks about managing a career in professional baseball and being a father to four children ages 8 and under.

Don’t like baseball? It doesn’t matter, CC’s words will resonate with any parent trying to find the balance between work and family time.

I’ll even add — though it’s hard for me to admit — that I’m a huge New York Mets fan and I enjoyed it. Check out the interview with CC Sabathia!
