Meet your baby’s new best friends – Eli the Elephant, Gus the Giraffe and Leo the Lion. These fun toy keys are made of non-toxic stainless steel and will satisfy your child’s desire to play with metal keys without the hazards of lead contamination, sharp edges or the daily grime that come with the keys in the bottom of your diaper bag. And they jingle just like your keys! Your grandchild’s name and birthdate can be personalized on the back, making the Kleynimals a special keepsake baby shower, new baby or first birthday gift. Kleynimals donates 1 percent of every purchase to Healthy Child, Healthy World and another 1 percent to World Wildlife Fund. The company also enlists the help of The Providence House, a nonprofit organization that supports developmentally disabled adults in living self-directed lives, for the assembly and tagging of products.

With kids back to school, they will be using the power of the Internet on computers or mobile devices more often now. And while the wealth of knowledge is great for school projects, it can sometimes land them in trouble. For example, if a child accidentally clicks that X-rated spam pop-up or a seemingly innocent link that redirects to something you would never want them to see. If you’ve got grandkids on the Internet at your home, you want to protect them. The Clean Router is a five-layer filtering router that has preset and customizable parental settings that filter out content. The Clean Router, easy to use, plugs into any modem and will protect every device that connects to the home’s Wi-Fi network, unlike apps and software that only safeguard the device on which the program is downloaded.
