Chicago Toy and Game Fair

Hi Neighbors!

I just wanted to let you all know about the 8th Annual Chicago Toy and Game Festival going on in Chicago November 20-21.  If you remember my post on the Baby Go Go, she will be at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair this year.  The event will be held at Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois.  This is America's largest Public Toy and Game Event.

You can find information about where to stay, parking, and public transportation here.  Tickets for admission are $10 for adults and $5.00 for children ages 3-13.  Educators, Librarians and Scouts in Uniform are able to enter for free.  Tickets may be purchased the day of the show.  Hours on Sat. are 10:00am-6:00pm and on Sunday 10:00am-5:00pm.

This is an event you can make plans to attend!  My family loves to visit Chicago, so maybe we will see some of you there.  There will be a Young Inventor Challenge and Renaissance Knights Chess Pavilion.  Check out other events here .  I can't believe the amount of products and companies that will be represented there.  Check out the list of exhibitors.

Check out the Chicago Toy and Game Fair Website and try to attend!  I am sure you will have fun!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
