Maccabee on the Mantel

Screen Shot 2013-12-06 at 10.18.38 PMTiny hands have been clapping in eager anticipation of what promises to be the best Hanukkah and the best – and only – Thanksgiviikkah, as of yet! The Maccabee on the Mantel is finally here. The anticipation has been building and the arrival did not disappoint; sweet little Jewish boys and girls everywhere are delighted to finally have a holiday companion they can call their own. The Maccabee on the Mantel is a plush toy and book combination that will resonate with many MOT (Member of the Tribe… aka Jewish) parents who have been in negotiations with their child as to whether an Elf who reports to Santa is an appropriate toy for a family that doesn’t celebrate Christmas. Alternatively, the Maccabee is the perfect accompaniment for the many, many families who now celebrate both! There is going to be a lot less “December Dilemma” discussion this year, partially because Hanukkah is in November, but mainly because the Maccabee has evened out the playing field. Interestingly, many non-Jewish families have purchased the Maccabee as well, in order to educate and expose their children to different beliefs and religions. The Maccabee on the Mantel has proven to be a great means by which to educate and enlighten all. This is sure to be a Hanukkah Tradition that families will enjoy for many generations to come.

TowelTopper Towel Band

kat_1TowelTopper Towel Band is a fun, unique, quirky and useful patent pending beauty accessory that helps solve a problem faced by millions of women everywhere…to keep your towel wrapped securely around you while you dress! This decorative band wraps on top of any towel anywhere to secure it in place – turning your towel into a robe or a cover up. This isn’t only great for moms, but is something a ton of moms would love, because they don’t have a chance to dress immediately out of the shower. Either that, or they have little tikes who are constantly opening closed doors, so privacy is an unknown idea (totally my life with a 7 and 2 year old).

Shaidee

babysling_1024x1024Most moms love the freedom that comes with using a baby carrier.  No concerns that come with getting a stroller through crowded stores or up stairs, and you get to be close to your new little one.  The one drawback has always been that your baby is exposed to the sun, which can bring sun damage, burns, and overheating.  Shaidee is the perfect solution, working on upright carriers as well as slings.  It gives your baby the perfect amount of shade, while still letting the air circulate, keeping them cool, as well as still allowing them to look out.  Baby’s delicate skin is too important to neglect with prolonged sun exposure so Shaidee is a necessity for every mom.
