Radio Flyer: Worlds Largest Wagon Mosaic!!!

Ring in the Summer with Radio Flyer!
World's Largest Wagon Mosaic

July 4th weekend is almost upon us, which means one thing- patriotic celebrations all wrapped up in red, white and blue! Families all over our great country will be heading to parks, beaches and backyard barbecues to commemorate the occasion with fireworks, sparklers and other symbols of Independence Day. And many of them will be pulling behind them another American icon in a certain signature color- a Radio Flyer Wagon!

Since 1917, the famous little red wagons by Radio Flyer have been a favorite of families and kids everywhere. Boasting more than a dozen award-winning wagon models and a complete line of tricycles, scooters, and other ride-ons, Radio Flyer is as synonymous with outdoor play as summer itself.

There are endless ways to enjoy your little red wagon, from standing out in the crowd at the Fourth of July parade, to toting all the ingredients for a fun summer picnic. Not only will your red wagon provide hours o…

Electrolux and Kelly Ripa Host
"Splits For a Cause"

Usually when we hear the word "split", we think of news of celebrity break-ups, splashed across the cover of tabloid magazines. Well, leave it to our favorite celebrity/brand team to prove that a split can be a good thing!

Kelly Ripa and Electrolux are joining forces once again to celebrate the launch of Electrolux Appliance's new stand-alone refrigerator and freezer - that's right, the familiar duo has split up. And to sweeten the celebration, they're bringing in the "Emperor of Ice Cream" Stephen Bruce, owner and founder of Serendipity 3, the landmark New York City restaurant and dessert spot, into the mix.

Kelly and Bruce teamed up earlier today to make banana splits for a cause. And now we want you to dig in, with your virtual spoon! Starting today, at, you can build your ultimate banana split using virtual ingredients from classic whipped cream to caramel s…

Online learning...the iGeneration...

Today's students, known as the "iGeneration", are the first to crave and benefit from education "on demand" - or the option to choose where, when and how they want to learn.

To put it in context, the "iGeneration" has never known life without the Internet, being mobile, using avatars, IMing or choosing and watching content whether they are at home, in the car, at a football game or shopping at the mall. To reach them in their high-tech, high-touch world, many parents and educators are looking at how to rewire schools to match how the iGeneration learns.

Taking classes online is one way to give middle and high school students (and their school districts) new options to learn using preferred tools in a familiar environment, and even experience enhanced, one-on-one relationships with educators. Whether they're in need of more assistance, looking for wider range of classes or simply prefer to learn in a medium that they have grown up with, online learni…

Bust Summertime Boredom!

Bust Summertime Boredom with
11 Wallet-Friendly Ideas from Primrose Schools

Prevent Summer "Brain Drain" by Planning Ahead

School is out and children are so excited that summer is here, but it won't be long until you hear the infamous, "I'm bored" from your little ones.

Primrose Schools, the leader in educational child care, recommends encouraging imaginative play and having a plan in place to keep children's minds engaged during the summer months. Studies show that without stimulation, children can lose up to 60 percent of what they learned during the school year.

That's why Dr. Mary Zurn, Vice President of Education for Primrose, has come up with the list of ideas below as a starting point for summer activities that offer a balance between the freedom of child-initiated play time and more structured activities.

One eskimO concert review

I had the opportunity to attend and review a concert by One eskimO last night. I got two tickets and a meet and greet back stage. Not sure who to take with me, I finally asked my country bumpkin husband. When I say country bumpkin, I mean country bumpkin and One eskimO is NOT country music. But...I thought it would make for a fun date night.

One eskimO's music is tough to define...but I will try. It is along the lines of soft rock. Maybe like a Pink Floyd...Cranberries mix? Maybe even alternative? So...we'll go with soft, alternative rock! So One eskimO is currently touring the states. They are from England, and from what I understand, they are pretty big there. One of their songs, "Khandi" has made them big there and here in the states.
They are extremely talanted people. VERY versatile! I was extremeley fascinated by their musical skills...especially that of the drummer. Now....some of you may know....I am a I always find myself paying more attention to…
