Baby’s first video game remote that’s perfectly safe for chewing and drooling

Every parent knows that babies just love to chew on all the things that probably shouldn’t be chewing on. And always the expensive, important stuff. The keys. The phone. The video game remote. And so, over the years, clever handmade artisans have created some of the cutest baby-safe alternatives, many of which we’ve featured here. And this plush geeky video game remote from Ann’s Craft House that’s featured in the Cool Mom Picks Baby Shower Gift Guide which you — yes you with the baby right there — need now, is no exception.   Related: Baby’s first retro video game remote  Handmade from fleece, this cool...

Eep opp ork, ah-ah, that means I love you.

Today we’re wishing all our favorite techie parents a very happy Valentine’s day with the help of some Jetson’s lyrics, and a collection of super cool handmade punk felt heart robots courtesy of Utah crafter, Ginny Penny who makes what she calls “messy little robots.” Aren’t they the best? They’re longer lasting than flowers, less caloric than champagne truffles, and would look pretty fab propped up on top of my laptop monitor, which is also something I can’t say for either flowers or truffles.

Star Wars Home t-shirts: Because for Jedis – or smugglers – home is where your ship is

I had to laugh when I saw these clever Star Wars shirts, designed in the style of the popular home state tees you may have seen all over the place. But with these, your little (or big) Star Wars fans can share their love of their home ship instead. We know more than a few kids who would love these shirts, whether they’ve got more of an affinity for the Millennium Falcon, Lando’s Cloud City or even a Jawa Sandcrawler. If you want to get super geeky, you can also grab one featuring Boba Fett’s Slave I ship, and truth be told, I had to Google that one. But maybe your Star...

Sending your mom a real card for Mother’s Day: What a novel idea!

With all the digital ways you can say “Happy Mother’s Day” to the special mom in your life this Sunday, sending an actual paper card is an extra special treat. And that’s why this card made me laugh. Yes, I love texting and Facetiming as much as the next person, but you know, there’s just something about getting a handwritten note, and even better when it has a little self-depricating humor, like this Not Sent from my iPhone greeting card. In just a few words, it says lots of nice things, like that you took the time to write with a...
