    At the checkout today I noticed Kohl's has some very nice plush animals they are selling for $5 each to raise money for a charity. They were *nice* plush animals, about 10-12" high, not the tiny ones you expect with a $5 price tag. Anyway, something to consider if you're stretching the kid's...

    Kids need toys but toys laying around in the bottom of toys boxes or left on shelves aren't a good use of dollars spent for those toys. How do you get the most play for your kids from their toys? Is it what you buy? How you buy it? How you organize? What you buy? How do you get the most play...

    We went to Toys R Us today and found Barbie scooters on clearance for 20.98 and there was 20.00 off all Barbie scooters. I was able to get 2 for .98 each! Not sure if the 20.00 off is a weekly promotion? I got the last 2 in La Crosse, WI.

    I heard this on the radio today. They were talking about unsafe toys again this year. I also didn't know they were going to ban- was it some sort of plastic? http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=97723259
