Did you know that Toca Boca's classic Hair Salon game debuted back in 2011? It brings back lots of memories for me because it was Chloe's favorite app and her first introduction into the world of Toca Boca. Now five years later, there's the new Toca Hair Salon 3 ($2.99 Apple App Store | Google Play | Kindle Fire) featuring the most diverse characters yet! It's all about being creative and getting silly with hair! The app features all-new characters with dozens of starter styles and millions of possible styling options. You can do straight, wavy, curly and now kinky... Continue reading

Toca Boca has launched another fun app for kids with Toca Life: Farm ($2.99, Apple App Store | Google Play | Kindle Fire). This app, like the rest of the Toca Boca games lets kids take control of their own game play. Chloe loves have free reign on exploring and playing with her favorite characters on the farm. What I love is that there's no wrong way to play and kids can easily figure out what they can do.

I first met fashion designer Cecily Chudacoff a few years ago when her son and my daughter were in the same Kindergarten class. Throughout the time I've known her, I've come to admire her wonderful relaxed, bohemian style that's so perfect for San Francisco. Cecily was a former interior designer for five years, but then decided to follow her passion for fashion design. In 2012, she completed an Apparel Arts certificate program and now she's focused on pursing her dream in the fashion world. She works out of her studio in SF's Mission district, creating designs for her brand, Cecily... Continue reading

One of my favorite books as a child was Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar ($9.99 on Amazon). Chloe was obsessed with it as well and we had both the English and French versions of the book. Now, this beloved, classic children's book is coming out with an e-book version! It's a perfect way for kids to take it on trips on your tablet or to pick up and read (instead of playing apps) on your iPhone. Did you know that the The Very Hungry Caterpillar is published in 62 languages in a variety of formats including hardcover, board book,... Continue reading
