Boys have a large list of popular kids Halloween costumes as well, some of which are the usual superheroes. You will also The Most Popular Kids Halloween Costumesfind choices that are new to the list this year such as the Deluxe Grimlock, werewolfs, Super Mario Luigi, and Duck Hunter; all of which are sure to be very popular. Star Wars costumes are another category that has topped the charts year after year and Halloween 2014 is no exception.

All time classics remain on the list of popular kids Halloween costumes this year, such as witches, princesses, pirates, clowns and vampires.

If you have a child under 3, consider dressing them in some of the cute, one piece toddler and baby costumes. There’s a large variety of them available. Most are made of soft fabric.

Back when I was a child there was no such thing as online shopping; most costumes you could buy included a flimsy plastic mask with string, and a printed plastic poncho. If you wanted something really cool and unique, it became a DIY project for mom and you.

Today shopping online not only gives you access to an endless number of unique costumes, but also accessories, makeup, and masks. Another major advantages of shopping online is that you can visit several websites at a time and compare the collections as well as the prices. Shopping online not only allows you to find the perfect costume with the help of your child(ren), but it allows you to shop in the comfort of your home, avoiding busy costume stores. Read more…

Promise Land Family Fun Farm

As you may have noticed from my recent posts, we’ve been on kind of a farm bender the last couple of weeks. I have an unspoken goal to visit as Promise Land Family Fun Farm many  Ontario Animals, farms & Zoos that I can drag my husband to. While I am not a pro at the best farm for a family to visit, I know what I like in a petting zoo. There is nothing more rewarding than when you see some goats come up to great your 17 month old daughter.

Promise Land Farm is a family business owned and operated by Don and Cheryl Dowswell. Located at 640 Hamilton Road, Quinte West, the Farm became open to the public on October 6, 2012, offering a full wheelchair accessible petting zoo,  snack shack, bbq area and playground.

If coming from Ottawa to the farm you want to take exit 538 for Country road 1 Wallbridge loyalist road towards sterling  turning right onto Wallbridge loyalist road and then right onto Hamilton Road.  If traveling from Toronto area, take exit 526 for County Road 4/Glen Miller Road toward Trenton/CFB Trenton. Turn left onto Glen Miller Rd/County Rd 4 (signs for County Road 4 S/Glen Miller Road S/CFB Trenton), then turning left onto Hamilton Rd/County Rd 22.

A very reasonable 6.00 gets you admission to the petting zoo, with special rates for children and seniors. Children under 2 receive free admission. Please note that the farm accepts cash only, so make a stop at the bank before you visit.  Read more…

Ever since the first Transformer toys were marketed in 1984, they have continued to grow in popularity. I don’t think it was ever anticipated that it would Transformer Toys For Fans of Any Agebecome such a great franchise.

The toy line was later adapted into a comic book series, animated tv shows, and into numerous feature films. When it comes to action movies for boys, there is nothing better than the movie, Transformers. Featuring fantastic computer-animated action and an all-star cast of actors,  Transformers has dominated both the entertainment and toy industry.
