As much of an organized person I am, I always felt like at the end of the year, I was only... Continue reading

It's finally summer and kids can enjoy a virtual vacation with their favorite characters in the new app, Toca Life Vacation ($2.99, available for iOS, Android and Kindle) from Toca Boca. My daughter Chloe is a huge fan of the Toca Boca apps and was desperately waiting for this app to be released, having watched the trailer video over and over. Thanks to the folks at Toca Boca, she received a preview app and was immediately excited to explore the game. Intuitively, she knew exactly what to do with the game once she started. It does does not disappoint with... Continue reading

A photo posted by Natalie Zee Drieu (@coquettenatalie) on May 3, 2016 at 8:30pm PDT For the last five years, I've been attending Chronicle Books' amazing book preview events each fall and spring.

At this event is where I get to preview what's coming up for the next season with Chronicle Books' kids division.

Get robot party fun with Sago Mini Robot Party by Sago Sago. The app just launched at the Apple App Store ($2.99) on Thursday and it's tons of wacky fun for kids. There are 58 billion robot combinations and you can explore the robots' rhythms to make music. I love that at the end for the robot's "picture time" you have to move the robot around in a pose to get them to actually smile. It's something kids identify with when taking pictures so it's extra hilarious for my daughter. It's these little extra things that sets apart Sago Mini... Continue reading
