Bilingual is Better

SB Finds : Toys & Games

Ingenio Smart Play Pad (Interactive Learning Toy)

Ingenio’s Smart Play Pad is one of those toys your child will love tapping to discover new sounds that make up letters, colors, and words they may or may not already know. What I liked about this toy was that it had a bilingual switch where your child could hear these words in Spanish or English. The other thing that made this toy special for my nena was that she thought it felt like it was her very own “pad,”Read More ...

Classic Wooden Tea Set by Lakeshore Learning {Giveaway}

Teaching by example is the motto of my parenting style. I have certain traits I consider fundamental that I want to pass on to my daughter, Little L. If I don’t lead with my actions, how can I expect more from her?  As parents, we also need to find support in tools like books, toys, videos, and other quality activities that can help our children develop, learn, and grow. One of the traits that it is incredibly important to meRead More ...

Are you a Barbie Mariposa or Hada? {Giveaway}

We’ve managed to gather a decent collection of the Barbie DVDs the last few years and I’m okay with that. Every DVD comes with a Spanish language option, so it’s actually been one of the movie series she’s watched the most. Not only do we have them because of the Spanish-language option that’s so important to us, but also because the movies always carry a positive message about friendship and being true to oneself.  My girl can also use herRead More ...

El Chavo Toys {Giveaway}

El Chavo may very well be one of the most well known Spanish-speaking characters (alongside Mafalda) in Latin America, Spain and the Caribbean.  In the U.S. he is equally as popular among immigrant communities and children of immigrants like myself. To be honest I haven’t seen the show since I was kid, but receiving these toys in the mail brought back many memories.  My three year old was thrilled to put the little “títeres” (or puppets) on her fingers andRead More ...

Club Penguin’s “Teen Beach Movie” Summer Jam in Spanish! {Giveaway}

Everyone has been talking about Disney’s “Teen Beach Movie” (including my very, very pre-teen Diego)! He can’t help but hear what his friend’s older siblings are saying and he catches the commercials on Disney all the time. Even more exciting: Disney’s Club Penguin is partying it up backstage at the “Teen Beach Movie” Summer Jam! Club Penguin is new to my son but as soon as I told him he could give it a try, he was all over it. FromRead More ...

Disney Planes Video Game Takes Flight + Giveaway

It was a full day of behind the scenes touring and interviewing earlier this summer, but Disney Planes is now in theaters (catch my full review!) and you can make sure to stay in flight with their newest video game offering. With the movie sure to impress the kids, you can keep the enjoyment going with Dusty’s high flying adventures as a racer. Loved Dusty, but want to check out the scene through another character’s eyes? Pick any of theRead More ...

¡Eso, Eso, Eso! El Chavo Toys Available in the U.S. Soon

If there’s one character that can unite all Latinos bajo la misma bandera it would be El Chavo. Generations of Latinos both in the U.S. and across Latin America have grown up watching “El Chavo del 8″ y sus amigos de la vecindad for the past 42 years. Many of us can repeat favorite phrases and have our favorite characters. (Mine is Doña Florinda! Yours?) In fact, re-runs of “El Chavo del 8” (1971-1992) are watched worldwide in over 90 countries, including Latin America, Brazil,Read More ...
