Stars Love Kiwi Crate Activity Kits – And Now We Know Why

21 Aug

When we were kids, our parents let us run wild in the backyard or the neighborhood during summer vacation. But after we’d exhausted ourselves with hide and seek and other games, we’d still have to come up with creative ways to fill our time.

Now in the age of 24-hour children’s TV programming and video games, it’s hard to pry your kids away from the tube or gadgets. But it looks like celebs including Halle Berry, Michelle Williams, Ellen Pompeo and Julie Bowen have figured out a way to keep their little ones engaged – and outside! – without high-tech electronics – Kiwi Crate‘s cool craft sets.

Recently, the subscription service company added the fun Summer Discovery Pack ($60) which comes with three different outdoor-themed kits. Our fave is the Fun with Flight version (below). Not only does it include a D.I.Y kite, but your kid can also study aerodynamics using mini spaceships. But what if science isn’t your child’s forte? Kiwi Crate also offers single kits ($20 each) that you can mix and match per their interests. Space Hero, anyone?

So Cute! U.S. of Awesome’s Rock the Vote Video

6 Nov

Tori Spelling Stella Saved My Life

Tuesday is going to be bananas! And to get in on the fun, U.S. of Awesome has launched an adorable video encouraging everyone to get out and express their right to rock the vote.

Featuring a toddler outfitted in a cute monkey costume who wreaks havoc on the polling booth (before settling down to enjoy his tasty treat!), the short clip is intended to poke fun — and provide a few light-hearted laughs — at what happens when you don’t mark your ballots.

“We wanted to avoid sounding preachy in trying to get people to vote,” says the brand’s co-founder, Vasili Gerogiannis. “But we also want to drive home the message that voting is crucial for a democracy to function. So, don’t be a monkey, be a part of the process!”

The video (check it out below!) is also an extension of the company’s 2012 campaign clothing collection, which includes their comfy Love to Vote tees that are made entirely in America.
