For the Grandkids


ggs-001_1z“GoGo” is really an idea and a way of looking at the world. People tend to overcomplicate things when the truth is a simple fact right in front of them. “GoGo” is the simple unstructured and active play that is pure goodness for kids (and the kid in all of us). “GoGo” is about having the imagination to create delight in any situation.

At GoGo squeeZ our mission is to make it easier for kids & families to be a little healthier and happier. We work in the magical space where kids are happy and parents are affirmed. GoGo kids ask for healthier snacks and love to play outside. GoGo moms get to say YES! more often. Our purpose is to spread more “GoGo” love. We invite you to join us. We invite you to play. The more the merrier.

Our tasty applesauce pouches ~ available in apple apple, apple strawberry, apple banana, apple cinnamon, and apple peach ~ are jam packed with squeezable goodness that kids love before, during, and after playtime.  They’re great for car rides, too, because there’s no spoon and no mess.  None of the flavors have any artificial anything, plus there’s no gluten, dairy, or nuts.

GoGo sources from evolved farms and orchards that use the best ecological practices to grow and harvest fruits keeping the use of any chemical agents to a bare minimum. To further protect the integrity of their products, they remove and recycle all peels on all fruits used to create our yummy squeezable fruit. You get pure apples, great taste and no hidden nonsense.

The fun, yummy pouches are available everywhere, so head to www.gogosqueez.com/where-to-buy to find the store nearest you.  And then take some time to wander around the site and learn about the great folks behind the great product!

Topical BioMedics, Inc., headquartered in Rhinebeck, NY, announces that Topricin Junior® pain relief and healing cream  for children has been designated a Trusted Partner with Healthy Child Healthy World in an initiative to protect children from harmful chemicals.

“We are excited that our new partnership with Healthy Child Healthy World will enable us to reach a wider spectrum of concerned parents and everyone concerned about the health of our nation’s children and teach them that there is an alternative new standard to dangerous, over-the-counter chemical-based pain pills, and eliminate this form of chemical toxicity,” says Lou Paradise, president, chief of research, and product inventor.

Bfor-the-grandkids-topricin-junior-3rand-name chemical pain pills containing the active ingredients acetaminophen, ibuprofen and naproxen have serious and potentially deadly side effects and topical ointments with menthol, camphor, and other counter-irritants are not without side effects.  Because all of these products work against the body’s natural healing chemistries they actually shut the healing process down.  At the same time, they turn the pain signal off ~ which only temporarily masks the problem. And, because the cause of the pain is not addressed, it grows worse.

Equally alarming is the fact that during the past year and a half the country’s largest manufacturer of chemical-based pain pills has been subject to massive waves of product recalls for contamination, bacteria, foul odor, and incorrect high dosage instructions on the labels of products for adults, as well as products formulated for infants and children.

“Parents have peace of mind using Topricin Junior for treating their little ones’ aches, pains, injuries, bug bites, and skin conditions such as eczema” says Paradise. “Formulated with a combination of homeopathic biomedicines in an odorless, greaseless, soothing cream base, Topricin Junior helps stimulates the body’s desire to heal the damage that is causing pain ~ without parabens, petroleum, or other harsh chemicals, and with no known side effects.  It is the safest new standard.  And as part of our human advocacy, 5% of the sales of Topricin Junior are donated to pediatric cancer foundations… Our products are safe for… children age two and up, and can be used on children under age two with doctor’s permission.”

Topricin has just introduced the “Boo Boos Happen” kit, a basic starter first aid kit with a tube of Topricin Junior, some very cool design-yourself adhesive “Ouchie” bandages (colored bandages that come with markers), and some samples of classic Topricin and Topricin Foot Therapy Cream in a really nice zippered bag that can be customized with other first aid essentials of your choice.   The kit currently retails for $18.99.

for-the-grandkids-3d-bears13D Bears is a cute reaction game for Android and iOS. Geared towards toddlers (18 months – 2.5 years), 3D Bears has your little one dressing up an adorable family of bears and then watching them perform their routine on stage.

Begin by outfitting and customizing one of three bears ~ father, sister, and baby. Each character has its own unique personalities, represented by their wardrobe options. Once the bear is all dressed up, it’s time to take him / her to the stage to watch the show.

The rules for this part of the game are simple; don’t touch the screen until the green light turns red, signaling the end of their performance. If done correctly, the bear will be rewarded with a gold trophy.

A nice feature of this game is that the speed of the countdown timer for when the lights change color can be changed in the settings menu, making for various levels of difficulty.

3D Bears is available for only $0.99 in both the Android Marketplace and the iTunes App Store (including for the Samsung Galaxy, the Motorola Xoom, and the Kindle Fire).
