Family Friday: Made 2 Play Sneaker Winter Boot

For a couple of years, I’ve been buying my son these winter boots from Northside at Amazon. They’ve been OK, but he said that snow got into them sometimes. This fall I did some looking around online and settled on these unique boots from Stride Rite. The bottom part is built like a sneaker, and there are velcro fasteners that can tighten the boots in two different places. The flexibility of the top portion makes me think that they’ll be better at keeping out snow, but we shall see. (You can also fold down the top, as pictured.) They’re machine washable, too, which is pretty nice. These boots have a 4.4/5.0 at Amazon from 400+ reviews, and they range in price from roughly $20 to $54. The sizes available are Toddler (1–4 years) and Little Kid (4–8 years), and the color options are blue/green, pink, purple, and black, as well as designs with Frozen, Spider-Man, Star Wars, My Little Pony, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Stride Rite Made 2 Play Sneaker Winter Boot

Psst: Like I’ve mentioned before, Amazon often has Black Friday deals in the days and weeks leading up to Black Friday — including some of the best deals of the year on kids toys. Today, Amazon’s deal of the day is on Kidcraft dollhouses, train tables, and play kitchens —  prices more than 50% off in some cases.

Psst 2: One more sale of note: mega sale (“Premier One Day Event”) at Pottery Barn Kids and all sister brands — prices up to 50-70% off, including on furniture.

Family Friday: Woven Jersey Navy Pouf

If you’re looking for a kid-friendly piece of decor that’s still kind of stylish for your home, I have to sing the praises of Land of Nod poufs. We have a bright green one from a couple years ago that’s similar to this, and it’s durable and the kids like it — and it works well in the space. This is sort of the more grown-up version but if you have any little ones to spoil this holiday season (or the grandparents want to), they also have a $120 giant dog stuffed animal pillow that your kids can flop on that looks really adorable. The pictured one comes in blue and cream and is $99. Woven Jersey Navy Pouf

Make My Life Easier Thursday: Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote

I got a Fire TV Stick recently because using the TiVo interface had really been annoying me and I saw this on sale. I must say — especially if you have another TV that doesn’t have cable — this is great. It’s very fast and has a very smooth interface (but of course how well it works depends on how reliable your home internet service is). We’ve even considering cutting the cord entirely, so if anyone has any advice on that, I’d love to hear it! Also, although I love Alexa, I have yet to figure out how to use them together. The Fire TV Stick is $40 at Amazon, where it has an incredible 116,000+ customer reviews with an overall 4.5/5.0 — plus 1,000 (!) answered questions if you want to learn more. Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote | Streaming Media Player

Family Friday: Dinosaur Table Lamp

We have this dinosaur table lamp, and it’s a really nice find. We’ve had bad luck with lighting, particularly for the kids’ rooms — we had one lamp that we paid far too much for from Pottery Barn Kids (or PBTeen) that basically fell apart after about a year of regular use. (I don’t think my son was tackling it during the day, but you never know.) This one is $30, so it’s very affordable. (Note that it’s ceramic, though, so it will break.) So if you’re looking for a cute lamp for your kid’s room, do check this out. There’s also a panda bear and a unicorn, and they’re all around $30 at Target. Dinosaur Table Lamp Green – Pillowfort™

Family Friday: Static Tweed Jersey Sheet Set

I always like to check places like Pottery Barn Teen for cute sheets and towels and things like that because I tend to have more playful taste than a lot of the grownup stuff out there. These sort of space-dyed blue and purple sheets look really lovely, and they’re on sale. They come in extra-long twin (for dorm rooms, of course — ah, memories!), full, and queen, so these would work for adults, college kids, teenagers, and little kids. They are Oeko-Tex® Certified, which means that they’ve been lab-tested and are free of 300 harmful substances. They were $32.50–$129 but are now $19–$79 at PBTeen. ivivva Static Tweed Jersey Sheet Set

Family Friday: Girls’ Striped Three-Quarter Sleeve Boat-Neck Tunic

It’s nice to see that Amazon is expanding the number of lines they make themselves and carry — and this one, Scout + Ro, is designed for little girls. They’ve got a ton of affordable pieces that are getting a lot of good reviews. This boat-neck tunic top comes in three different colors of stripes and has a really lovely Parisian/French vibe. It’s got a 4.4/5.0 rating from 30+ reviews and is $12.50 (with Prime and free returns). Scout + Ro Girls’ Striped Three-Quarter Sleeve Boat-Neck Tunic
