Here at Little Hoboken, we have been self-isolating, the same as everyone else (should be). As we approach the end of week 3, we thought it would be nice to share what our kids have been playing with to keep busy and at times active. The following is a listing of the unsung heroes of our self-isolated, working from home, homeschooling lives right now.
ABC Mouse - We can't say enough good things about ABC Mouse. It is perfect for toddlers and also for 6 year olds. There are appropriate lessons for every age and fun educational games for your child to play.
The Basic Fun Build-A-Bot Robotics Puppy comes with over 20 numbered pieces that click together to make your very own puppy, as well as stickers to decorate it and a certificate to name it.
The Foam Alive Make N' Melt Ice Cream Kit comes with everything you need to make and mold your own mess- free magic melting ice cream cones.
Great Pretenders Colour A Puppet set comes with two double-sided c areer themed puppets (4 careers per box) and washable markers.

Osmo now has a Little Genius Version for Pre-Schoolers (age 3-5) in addition to its original Genius Starter Kit for ages 6-10. For those of you unfamiliar with Osmo, it is essentially a learning game that attaches to your iPad. It also entails handheld game pieces that all work together fusing technology with classic play.
