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.

But the customs have different origins, and their attitudes toward death are different: In the typical Halloween festivities, death is something to be feared. But in el día de los muertos, deathRead More ...
