Hi Neighbors!

I was given the opportunity to join the site for a month and check it out.  Tryout is a place where you can connect with experts in different fields.  It is a kid safe talent network.  You can register your child and then view different contacts and opportunities.

Tryout costs:
To sign up for Tryout is FREE! You can explore channels, opportunities and contests, in addition to getting tips from pros, experts, finding special training programs, teachers and coaches in your region and more. In order to apply for opportunities and/or contact an agent directly, you will need to go to your account page and upgrade your membership. For only $7 monthly, you can apply to 3 opportunities a month. To contact an agent directly costs $5. Tryout believes in giving back to the community and will donate a portion of each payment to a dedicated non-profit featured in the network.

Tryout has many fields listed.  You can choose fields from Sports, Dance, Drama, Music, Fine Arts, Martial Arts and others.  Each person registered may choose up to 5 fields of interest.  Once you have registered and chosen the fields of interest, you will be given channels to follow.  Some channels are extremely active, where others are not.  these channels will have information and opportunities posted for you and your child to read.

Tryout Safety:
Our site is not intended to be a social network. Your child’s profile is never made public and cannot be looked at or found by anyone. When you apply for an opportunity, you send an application that you create within Tryout that may include media that comes from your gallery on the site. If at any time you feel uncomfortable or run into trouble when in touch with a pro or agent, tell us by clicking the 'Contact us' link located at the bottom of every page. One of our team members will review the message promptly and take action if necessary.

Tryout is 100% COPPA Compliant.
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA" or the "Act") protects the Personal Information (“PI”) of children under the age of 13. Tryout is COPPA compliant and certified by PRIVO.  Tryout is a participant in the PRIVO's Privacy Assurance Program.

The seal on this page indicates that Tryout has established privacy practices and has agreed to submit to PRIVO's oversight and consumer dispute resolution process. 

One thing I do appreciate is there are no links to Facebook or Twitter from the sites for your children to click on.  Your child will not be viewing pages you do not know about.

I can see where Tryout could be very useful, but do have to say that presently in the fields we chose, there is not much available.  Since my children are not into modeling, dance, or many types of music, we were limited in choices.  We chose fields like; Tae Kwon Do, Drawing, Writing, Graphic Arts and a couple others.  If this is something you might be interested in, visit and sign up and try it out for free.  Then if it meets your needs, you can upgrade your membership.

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.
