Lost My Name Book 

Lost my name book

A personal, beautiful, magical book. The adventure is based on the letters of a personalized name.   The child is given the first letter of each character’s name, finally putting together their own name. Every name creates its own unique, personalized tale featuring an incredible cast of different characters. The books: “The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name” and “The Little Boy Who Lost His Name,” tell the story of a child who sets off on a spectacular adventure to track down all the missing letters of their name. Kids will love to meet the glamorous Ostrich, sleep-deprived Bear, a Viking who yearns to bake and a Zebra torn between spots and stripes – and many, many more. No need to worry if your kids have unique names or if their names are spelled differently than mainstream names. Each book can include the letters you want with thousands of possibilities! $29.99 and shipping is free! www.lostmy.name

Lotty Dotty 

Lotty Dotty multiple shirt

Founded in 2009 by Shevanne Helmer and Maya Persaud, two American women living in Paris, France, the company has designed and patented a revolutionary line of high-fashion T-shirts featuring screen printed doll figures, that can be dressed interchangeably with velcro-backed designer mini-outfits. Harking back to childhood memories of playing with paper dolls, Shevanne and Maya named the company Lotty Dotty after one of their early favorites. From $7- $30, you can purchase on Lotty Dotty.

Camelio Tablet 

Camelio Tablet

For those parents that embrace technology for their children. The CAMELIO is a unique, Android tablet that allows you to customize and personalize your tablet with your favorite characters! Up to 5 users can easily create their own profile and customize their account with Camelio“Personality Packs” (sold separately). Personality packs allow users to customize wallpaper, widgets, lock screens, camera and photo editor and a themed bumper case. It’s equipped with all of the features parents have come to expect from a family tablet; built in Wi fi, camera, HD Video, touch screen and parental controls, the Camelio also includes lots of pre-loaded content for apps, games, music, video, art and other educational tools. Fun for the entire family!  You can buy online at Amazon.  Price ranges from $65-$119.

UPDATE ON THIS PRODUCT: I will admit that when I reviewed this product I had not tried to connect it to Wifi, I was only playing games with my daughter and looking at apps. Since my review I have tried to login through Wifi and had several problems vs my android tablet that just works and my iPad that just works, I am now having to send this product back to the manufacturer because it is a faulty tablet.  The company is replacing it but that was only after 2 calls totaling 1 hour and at my expense of sending it back for return.  In my final analysis, I would not recommend this product.  Even though it is low in price, my poor daughter is disappointed that she has still not gotten full usage of this product.

SidsFamily

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
