It’s been another busy week in the geek household this week. We’re finally starting to feel ready for Christmas – the house is decorated, the plans are made, the geekdaughter has finished her first term of school.

Learning to build stuff with DUPLO

August 7, 2012

Both my kids absolutely love DUPLO. We have a big box full of it, and it’s one of those toys that will entertain them for long periods of time – and as long as they don’t both desperately want the same key piece at the same time they can play together very nicely! Not being […]

For all our technology-loving ways, there are still some traditional toys that we as a family love, and one of those toys is LEGO.
