Following the research on the importance of barefoot walking for growing feet, KidOFit has been using its expertise in foot biomechanics to craft shoes that offer the ultimate barefoot walking experience, and promote healthy foot development in infants and toddler.
My daughter loves her KidOFit shoes and I love that they save me money. With the customizable fit system, I can adjust the elastic collar, heel strap and fitting inserts to create a better fit for her growing feet.
The smooth, seam-free interior, flexible sole and feather light materials make these shoes our number one choice for toddlers on the go.
Dollie & Me
Your daughter will absolutely love this cute Dollie dressed up in brand new Garden Party Dollie outfits. The fuchsia colored long sleeved sweater with mock shrug complements the pretty pink satin dress. The outfits set also include fun green flats, a fuchsia sparkly purse, sheer polka-dot tights, and a matching hair accessory.
This Garden Party Dollie is my daughter’s first 18″ doll. To make it extra special for her, I ordered her the matching fuchsia and green dress which she wears all the time. This doll and the outfits are very high quality and are sure to last for years.

GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank
Making recent news with the launch of the brand’s Rube Goldberg machine viral video and Final Four announcement for Intuit’s Small Business Big Game competition, Debbie Sterling and team have been hard at work creating Goldie’s next adventure and encouraging the growth of females in engineering.
The Game: Nacho, Goldie’s dog, hates water and loves being dirty. After many tries to get Nacho clean, Goldie finally comes up with the perfect contraption – a dunk tank! As kids read along, they learn about hinges and levers while creating a dunk tank for Nacho to finally bathe in before they all head to the town carnival. All pieces are compatible with the previous GoldieBlox sets, so building options are endless!
As of the end of January, GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank will be exclusively available on Target store shelves nationwide through March, before rolling out to other GoldieBlox retail partners.
We are having a blast with our GoldieBlox kit. My daughter typically sits and tries to find different ways to make the parts work together, which is what it’s all about.

How Hippo Says Hello & How Gator Says Good-Bye
These adorable board books teach preschool jetsetters how to say “hello” or “good-bye” in seven languages: French, Russian, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish. My daughter has had a fun time reading through these books with mommy and trying to pronounce each word.
These books are durable, colorful and very unique. I actually think they would make great Easter basket additions for your little jetsetter.
