Gululu is a fantastic product. I wish they would make one for adults! The idea is to get kids to drink more water, which is something that I know my kids don't get enough of. They don't drink a lot of soda or juice, I think they just forget to drink. With Gululu there is a screen on the bottle, and the kids get a "virtual pet" a tomagotchi! The more they drink, the happier and bigger their pet grows. Making the kids want to drink, to play the game. The pet will get sad if the child hasn't drank any water in a while, so it's a gentle reminder to drink. It can also sense if there is any cheating going on! 

I love this for my kids, and what better gift to give than one that keeps them healthy and hydrated.

Separation anxiety is a normal stage of emotional development in children and as your little one grows he/she may lapse in and out of this stage.

Whether facing back-to-school or back-to-work, you can help prepare your child by playing the Miffy Hide and Seek game, which comes complete with 24 location cards, game strategies, and Miffy figurine that repeats several phrases such as “I am here” and “I’m hiding.”

Geared for Ages 1-4 years old, Miffy Hide and Seek divides the game into three levels: infant (6-12 months old), toddler (1-2 ½ years old) and small child (2 ½ - 4 years old). Each level provides a development assessment and suggests an appropriate game.

For instance, infants (Level 1) do not realize that people and/or things do not simply disappear because they no longer see them. The game suggests to initially show your child where Miffy is hiding. Then partly hide the Miffy figurine under a cloth or towel for the first few games. As soon as your child figures it out, you can make Miffy disappear completely. By playing the game often your child will begin to understand that when something is out of sight, it does not mean it has disappeared for good.

Miffy is a beloved children’s preschool character renowned around the world. Her universal and timeless appeal is due to simple illustrations and everyday experiences and activities shared by children. Created by Dutch artist Dick Bruna in 1955 to entertain his young son while on vacation, Miffy first appeared in children’s picture books.

Sixty-two years later, Miffy is still entrusted and entertaining young children with her adventures. The Miffy books have sold more than 85 million copies, and are currently published in more than 50 languages. Her TV series, “Miffy’s Adventures Big and Small” series debuted on Nick Jr. last fall.
