Checkers – Board Games Made in America

I remember growing up playing Checkers with my dad. He usually won but it was fun just hoping to beat him, plus spending the time with him. My brother would get so mad when dad would win (which was most of the time) he was not a very good sport. I don’t think he ever really grew out of that. It was always fun though. I wish more kids played the simple games like Checkers. There are so many video games they would rather play and a lot of them are fun but it’s just not the same as sitting down having the interaction with another person.Checkers Made in America  A simple game of Checkers can stimulate the brain development in younger children and promote healthy brain function in the elderly. Checkers requires a lot strategy to be good at it. You have to try to figure out where your opponent is going to move next. So many questions to ask yourself. Which jump is best for me? How can I get a double jump? Where is my opponent going to move next? It can be mind boggling! Thinking like this kicks your brain into overdrive and will force critical thinking. Most children that have been exposed to this kind of thinking at an early age show more potential in school. Young or old everyone can appreciate a good game of Checkers its one of the best games to play. Go get your old Checker set out or go to www.AmericanToyBoutique.com to purchase an American Made Checkers Set that with last a lifetime.

Toys That Are Educational

When looking for toys most of us are looking for educational yet fun toys for our children or grandchildren. I believe some of the video games can be educational but I still think there is nothing like the a physical toy. Choosing toys that will help children be more creative, adventurous and caring helps them learn more about themselves.

Wooden rattles are a great way to start your infants off with. You can get them finished or unfinished with a naturoil finish to be just right for the baby. Babies enjoy hearing sounds from rattles.

I don’t know toddler that doesn’t like building blocks…..or a car they can push around and their own sounds. I have a grandson that makes every sound a car could possibly make.

Preschoolers are so much fun they want to learn so much. I remember when my kids were small they would put puzzles together over and over. Or I would read them a book until I could recite it without the book.

Board games are a great way to get the family together and actually interact with each other. Most board games can be played with any age children and adults. When you are looking for great American made safe toys and games this holiday season check out http://www.AmericanToyBoutique.com.

UAW Appreciation!!!

With the elections coming soon and all the negative campaigning with  constant reminders of  what he did and what she did its hard to understand that our County’s best interest is still everyone’s number one priority. As proud Americans we should be appreciative of the true dedication the great United Autoworkers Union (UAW) has constantly provided.  With the ups and downs of our economy they have proudly kept the focus on building the American way. American Toy Boutique would like to show its appreciation by offering a 10% donation to the UAW. Start your Christmas shopping today by visiting http://www.AmericanToyBoutique.com.

American Made

I got up this morning and went to my daughters house to get my grand-daughter on the bus for school. It was chilly out, I love the fall weather. I think this is my favorite time of year. Holidays are right around the corner and its comfortable to be outside, the leaves are falling and changing color. I have been so blessed to be able to watch my grandchildren while their parents work. Its always been my dream to be able to work from home and work around my children work schedules so I can watch the grand-kids.

 

I’ve been able to because of my toy store http://www.AmericanToyBoutique.com. I believe in supporting American made safe products and I have been able to do just that. American Toy Boutique carries American made toys and games….and adding more almost daily. Right now we are adding stuffed toys! I have learned how important child play is…..its there jobs, that’s pretty cool. I have 2 grand-daughters    that are reading all the time and they love reading stories with their names in them. I have made them The Ballerina Princess personalized book and they love it. Puzzles are a great way to help them develop fine motor and eye-hand coordination. I am getting started Christmas shopping it gets hard with the older kids because they always want money and I don’t think that is as much fun, but I guess that’s better then getting them something they won’t like.

Father’s Day

This was my first Father’s Day without my dad. It actually went better than I thought it would. I miss him so much.  But I know he is happy now with God and my mom. He had been so lonely since my mom died. I am just being selfish wanting him here. And I will see him and my mom again one day.  He wouldn’t have liked all this hot weather anyway.  My oldest grandson graduated this year and I wished he could have been here for that. He would have been so proud of him. But I thank God I had the time I had with him. He was such an inspiration to so many people and he was really the only stable male figure in my kid’s life.  He was all about buying American made things and I know he would have loved the fact that my Toy store www.AmericanToyBoutique.com is American made toys and games. Every time I see the Checker board set it reminds me of him. He always played checkers with the grandkids and great grandkids. He use to play them with my brother growing up but he was always win and it would make my brother mad (he wasn’t a very good sport).  I have been very blessed to have a Father as wonderful as him.
