Saturday Caption Contest Results: Scared of Santa Edition

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

Yes, it’s that time of the week. Not just time, but high time, we announced our winner from last week’s Caption Contest. I think our initial entrant scared off the rest of the contenders with her entry of almost Hemingwayesque simplicity.

Scared of Santa

Liz Says:

Mammmaaa, Santa farted!

With what imaginary gelt (sorry, getting my Holidays mixed up) gift shall we hypothetically commemorate Liz’s indisputable triumph? How about this beautiful wrapicon which she can pull up over her nose, innocuously claiming a sudden chill.

Listmania! Best Christmas Toys for Baby

Sunday, December 7th, 2008
By Glinda

Do you have a baby in your life? Even though they are of course too little to really understand what all the Christmas and holiday fuss is about, who says they can’t get a few presents of their own?

PhotobucketBaby Einstein Takealong Tunes A baby version of an MP3 player! At home or on the go, your child can listen to seven different classical music pieces by composers like Mozart and Vivaldi.

PhotobucketFisher-Price Little Superstar Sing-Along Stage An exciting introduction to music! This toy offers plenty of interactive musical features designed to grow with your child. The toy features “Instruments” that activate sounds when their buttons are pressed, and you and your child can sing along with and dance to five fun songs.

PhotobucketLeapFrog Learn & Groove Musical Table Provides a world of learning and musical fun for your child! This innovative toy is chock full of learning and musical activities designed to provide visual and auditory stimulation and motor skill development, as well as opportunities to learn about colors, the alphabet, and opposites for older children and much more.

PhotobucketLamaze Jacques the Peacock Designed for use from birth on up, the Lamaze Play and Grow Peacock has bright colors and multiple textures and sounds that are sure to stimulate and delight baby. Developed in conjunction with child development experts from Yale University, this toy comes with a Lamaze link for easy attachment to strollers, carriers, and diaper bags.

PhotobucketKringelring Sometimes simplicity is best. This highly rated wooden teether, along with the popular Max rattle, are safe and non-toxic for your baby. Made in Germany.

PhotobucketPeek-A Who? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it is NEVER too early to introduce your child to books. In this fun book, even the youngest readers will delight in trying to guess who–or what–is peeking through the window, and can easily grip the baby-fist-size holes to turn the pages for the answers.

PhotobucketFisher-Price Rock-A-Stack And oldie-but-goodie. Little ones will have a great time sorting, stacking, and tasting to see if the rings really taste as good as they look. My son loved this toy.

PhotobucketFisher-Price Amazing Animals Sing and Go Choo-Choo This motorized train helps baby learn about animals through songs and play. The engine has a light-up smokestack that makes the train come to life when pressed. The train begins to roll forward and a song plays. Place an animal in the driver’s area to learn more about the world of animals through a song. The second car features a bead bar to engage baby’s interest.

PhotobucketWho Loves Baby? Photo Album Book This book, made from soft, cushiony, easy-to-clean pages encourages parents and baby to “read” the book together and help build early social relationships through loving interaction and face recognition.

PhotobucketMunchkin Mozart Magic Cube I’ve featured this toy before, and it still ranks as one of the best for the infant/toddler set. Babies are completely fascinated by the lights that are sychronized to various pieces composed by Mozart. My son would play with this for a very long time, and when you’ve got a young one, it is a rare toy that holds their attention so well.
