Best Deals for the Week Across the Web

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

By Susan Yoo-Lee, Editor of

Once your kid hits kindergarten (or even preschool, in some cases), the birthday parties really start rolling around. As a parent, you could spend a small fortune on gifts for your kids’ friends alone. Instead of breaking the bank the next time little Stevie or Sally has a party, why not scoop up a bunch of gifts using this week’s deals from great places like Mattel, I See Me, Scholastic and more, and save them for when the parties roll around?

It’ll be a nice little bonus if you have some gifts leftover that you can use for your own kids for Christmas …

Parents Goody Giveaway: Win a Massive Play Kitchen from Step2!

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

As a child, I was fascinated with the idea of cooking. Putting together my own little meals using play food gave me a sense of what it was like making things for myself. It was totally fun to imagine my own dishes!

With Step2′s Heart of the Home Kitchen, today’s tykes ages 2 and up can still get that feeling of being their own chef. We love all the elements that encourage real-life interaction, like the bubbling stove top and the wipe-off board to make grocery lists. The set as a whole is an impressive 41 pieces, so there’s a lot to keep your little one busy!

For our latest giveaway, we are offering ONE lucky winner the chance to nab a Heart of the Home Kitchen for themselves (it’s worth $170!). To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and the end of the day February 10. More Qs about our giveaway? Read the official rules. Be sure to check back on February 11 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!

In the meantime, head into your REAL kitchen and try tossing up this Valentine’s Day recipe for strawberry milk with your sweetie!

Congrats to our winner Jaclyn Reynolds!

Infantino and Step2 Want YOUR Child for Their Ad Campaign

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Everybody Plays casting call

“We’re all different. And we think that’s beautiful.”

If you agree with that statement (and we’re guessing you do!), then you’ll appreciate the “Everybody Plays” campaign from Infantino and Step2, the companies whose baby and kid products you’re sure to have in your home. Everybody Plays promotes acceptance and inclusion for all children, everywhere, and is supported by the National Down Syndrome Society.

Today, as part of the campaign, the companies have kicked off a casting call for kids ages 3 months to 5 years of all backgrounds and abilities. Fifty lucky winners will be invited to take part in a two-day photo shoot with author/photojournalist—and friend of Parents—Kelle Hampton for an upcoming ad campaign. Infantino and Step2 will award an additional grand prize-winning family an all-expenses paid trip to San Diego to join the other winners for the photo shoot in September.

Infantino brand manager Colette Cosky and Kelle Hampton are both proud mothers of children with Down syndrome. Colette guest-blogged for us a few months back, describing her wishes for her son, Dexter. And Kelle, creator of the wildly popular blog “Enjoying The Small Things”, appeared in Parents back in 2010 when she shared the incredibly moving story of the birth of her daughter, Nella.

Think your child could be the next face of Infantino and Step2? Check out the official rules and fill out the entry form at the Everybody Plays Facebook Page. Good luck!
