Bilingual is Better

SB Finds

ReadMe: Abuelos

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner: Melissa Davis! One of the parts I love the most about SpanglishBaby is all the discoveries I’ve made of things I would’ve never known existed otherwise–this has been particularly true in the area of books. As you probably know by now, back in July we launched our newest monthly series, which we call: ReadMe. We have teamed up with several Bilingual/Spanish children’s book publishers to bring you a review of aRead More ...

Let's play piñata!

Creativity, culture, imagination and fun all in one little kit. I wished I would have found these make-your-own-piñata kits when my girl turned two.  Since she´s terrified of basically all types of piñatas after she witnessed the destruction of a Dora-shaped one, this one would have been a perfect way to involve her in the process and maybe that way she would have been more receptive to the idea. We could have picked the shape she wanted from the elephant,Read More ...

Toys and cool finds for multicultural kids

What a concept! An online toy retailer which sells dolls, books and products that actually represents this country’s growing multicultural population. In fact, check out Dolls Like Me‘s philosophy: “Children need to see the world the way it really is. They need to begin to develop global understanding, cultural awareness, and self-esteem as early as possible–and children of color need positive images that look like them.” I totally agree, don’t you? I first stumbled upon Dolls Like Me way backRead More ...

Manny´s Repair Shop::Fixing + Making

As soon as my son got his hands on Manny´s Repair Shop I was amazed at how he started hammering and using the screwdriver correctly and easily without my help. I didn’t explain how to use it, the parts are big enough and easy enough for him to do it himself. The toy comes with many parts to build lots of projects. It has six main project blueprints that Manny helps you go through step by step and it alsoRead More ...

Playful language learning online

As much as we´d like to avoid technology and fill our kids’ days with pure and natural activities, the reality is they are growing up in a different era where well-balanced technological skills are a necessity.  Why not offer  your child some fun and educational computer play while learning some words and phrases in Spanish at the same time?  Win-win! Go Go Lingo is a new on-line language game that uses animated games and a fun “playful immersion method” toRead More ...

Little Pim has fun with languages

I just had another of those reality check moments that happen way too often once you become a mom.  I honestly thought my daughter would be bored by watching the Little Pim Spanish Eating and Drinking DVD we were sent because, well, she already understands Spanish since it´s the only language she hears at home.  If you visit our sister site, SpanglishBaby, you already know we´re raising her bilingually with what´s known as the minority language at home method. IRead More ...

Dora says: ¡Vamos a Bailar!

My girl’s favorite phrase lately (said in a very dictator-like tone) is “¡A bailar!”  She manages to get us all dancing on cue and on the spot.  So you can imagine her bliss when she opened the huge Fisher Price box to discover her sorpresa:  a brand new Dance With Me Dora!  Her glee turned into euphoria as soon as she pressed the crystal on Dora’s necklace and the first words out of the doll’s mouth were “¡Vamos a bailar!”Read More ...

If these bean bags could talk…

Etsy is my favorite site to browse for original, artistic and unique Finds.  You´ll be happily surprised at the many cute things you can find for our niños and for ourselves that are bursting with attitude and have been created by Latinos y Latinas. I´m especially fond of supporting artists who are keeping it real by doing what they love. It was here that I found Miss Butler´s Etsy shop where she showcases her vibrant creations which are all madeRead More ...
