ALEX Jr. Stack Me Up is a Stack of Developmental Fun!As my belly begins to expand (literally more and more every day!), I am steadily getting excited about bringing out the baby toys again.  So when I saw the Stack Me Up toy from ALEX Jr, it was love at first sight.

Not only is it adorable, but it really is a great developmental toy!  While it is geared toward kids six months to one year of age, I believe that this toy is perfect to grow with your child during the first two years of life.  Younger children love the sensory elements while older kids love to explore the more imaginative side of the toy.

Here are the areas of development that I thought this toy really targeted:

ALEX Toys took their wooden building blocks above and beyond the simple classics by using unique shapes, vibrant colors, and graphic patterns. These modern elements add to the fun and increase the opportunities for imaginative play and learning.

Ask Nurit: Your Craft Stash

Dear Nurit,

I live in a very cold climate and will be facing a winter with a 4 year-old who will be spending quite a bit of time indoors. What craft supplies do you suggest I have on hand for days it is too frigid to face the cold? I’d love to avoid excessive television watching!

Winter is coming and for many people that will mean snowmen, snow angels, and snowball fights. You’re absolutely right, some days it will be too cold to brave the outdoors and just like you want to make sure your pantry is stocked, having a variety of craft supplies on hand is essential for a fun-filled winter.

Here are the Craft Stash basics:

-Plenty of white and colored construction paper

-2 or more glue sticks

-Scotch tape

-A box of crayons


-A set of paints with at least two brushes

-Whimsical items such as glitter and googly eyes

-Two or more crafting project kits (model airplanes, tie-dye kits, et)

– Age appropriate scissors

That’s it! Enjoy your winter wonderland!


Ask Nurit: Newborns

Dear Nurit,

I’ve read the baby books and heard advice from a variety of experts. If you had to sum up the needs of a newborn in a few words what would you say they are?

Cuddles, cuddles, and more cuddles. All a newborn needs outside of food, clothing, and shelter is to feel safe and secure in her environment. Skin to skin touch, hearing your voice, and lots of hugs from people who love her help build a foundation of healthy development that she can build on as she grows.
