There's always something new at Mom-to-Mom. This month the website is getting it's third overhaul. Along with a different look, offers you much more! 

Cloud b Twilight Sea Turtle - Constellation Night LightBirthday Presents!  With so many birthday parties to go to, I have now devised a set list of my favourite presents to give.  These are all toys, books or games that my kids and the kids we have purchased the gifts for have enjoyed the most. 

Here's one of my favourite baby/toddler gifts (but the older kids love it too)!  It's kind of a night light, but it is soft and huggable and projects constellations on the ceiling.  It's really fun to play with, it's educational and it gets your kids into bed with the lights off!  Want to see more of my picks?

Product Highlight- Strider Pre-Bikes
Strider Sports PreBike, Green
A Strider bike is also known as a run-bike, and they're all the rage. These bikes allow toddlers to ride like a big girl or big boy without the worry of having to pedal. Tricyles never seem to be the right size, and the pedals are difficult to push. On a Strider Pre-Bike, the youngest riders (18 mnths) put their feet on the ground and walk the bike. As they progress, riders learn how to run with the bike, then balance on two wheels and push with their feet to glide. Strider Pre-Bikes are light weight, and easy to maneuver and won't tip over like a trike or two-wheeler.

Mom-to-Mom subscribers are now eligible for a $10 discount! 6 great colours to choose from. Please e-mail to get your Strider today! Visit for more details and demonstrations.
