Today's kids will never know about the original SnapChat filter 😂
Am I the only one struggling to find events for kids during the winter? I feel like I haven’t done much with my son since the holidays so I decided that now would be the best time to update the blog with a fun list of events in NYC. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one struggling with this. In the summer it’s so easy to bring the kids out to the park or beach, but in the winter you have to really search for things to do. I’ve decided to make this a monthly post so we can all stay in the loop about what’s happening. If you don’t live in NYC you could probably find these same events in your city because some of them are traveling events. Speaking of wishing it was summer, I’ve partnered with SuperMOPI, the most awesome
toddler motorbike ever, and we’re giving away one of their infamous motorbikes to one lucky winner.
bike is perfect for kids who haven’t yet mastered the art of riding pedal bikes. It goes fast enough to make it enjoyable, and they will gain experience with steering and controlling an object. We’re giving away the XL which is suitable for children between ages 2-4 years old. This bike is safe, sturdy, and durable, and it only weighs 3lbs so it is very easy to carry. Take a look at SuperMOPI’S Youtube page to see it in action!
