Life Hacks For Kid Survival – Must Have Toys For The Everyday Parent (Part 3 of 5)


Only One You by Linda Kranz makes #3 on the list. I don’t really write that much about books at Learning Express (although I really should), but this book is such  a favorite at our house, I had to give it the respect it deserves and put it on my top list of must haves. (See Part 1, Part2) Join a young fish named Adri on his adventure learn some very valuable life lessons some from his mom and dad like “Always be on the lookout for a new friend,” or “appreciate art, it’s all around you!” The fish are all uniquely painted giving the book a very colorful, vibrant look. It’s very inspiring!

Why I like it?

  • It’s super positive and very encouraging for readers.
  • Not only does it give young readers encouragement, it helps me reflect on things as well.
  • The artwork is fantastic. My daughter loves to choose her favorite ones on each page as we read.
  • It’s a great story, and it’s short enough that you don’t get tired of reading it over and over again.

Learning Express not only has Only One You, but the follow up book as well called You Be You. These two books are valuable additions to any home library. This book falls right inline with Learning Express’s mission to make the next generation better, one gift at a time. “There’s only one you in this great big world…”

Life Hacks For Kid Survival – Must Have Toys For the Everyday Parent (Part 2 of 5)

Yard Sign New Crocs Small

Alright, I know this isn’t technically a toy, but if you’re a parent, you get the picture above. There may be toddlers out there who keep there shoes on in the car, but if your kids are anything like mine, the shoes come off…every time. This is just one reason why Crocs are a must have shoe for our family. Aside from being easy to slip on and off, here are a few more reasons why Crocs made my list of “Must Have Toys From Learning Express.”

  • They make great playground shoes, especially if you are at an indoor playground like Southpoint or Triangle Town Center. Slip’em off….slip’em right back on.
  • They have such a variety of styles and colors.
  • They are super durable and really easy to clean.
  • When kids splash in puddles, there are no worries. Crocs are made for water, which also makes them great for the pool and beach! And that reminds me, ever tried to wash sand off a toddler after a long day at the beach? Crocs, baby, Crocs.
  • Kids can slip them on and off by themselves, encouraging independence and confidence, not to mention it makes it easy for moms juggling multiple kids at a time. (We have 3 kids under the age of 4…I understand)
  • They feel great on kid’s feet. The crosslite material (which can only be found with real Crocs) conforms to your feet. Basically the more you wear them, the better they feel.
  • You can personalize and decorate them with Jibbitz.

Those are just my families reasons for using Crocs. Learning Express has the best deals on them and if you’re a member of our VIP program you can use coupons or discounts too! We stock them in our Cary and Durham locations only, but can always have some transferred to any of our triangle locations.
