Madallie: Pedal Cars
No offense, but we think “Power Wheels” are a bit silly, after all, shouldn’t the goal for kids be more activity? We love this pedal car for its touch of retro whimsy – imagine the games that a kid’s imagination can conjure with a muse like this. The Pedal Cars from Madallie are also available in Pink and a Police version. “Cops and Robbers” was never so stylish. $205.95. Visit Madallie’s Shop Online Page.

Winter’s Eve: Love & Lights
We’ll be honest, here at TodaysMama we have a special fondness for “Eve” the fairy heroine of the All Hallows Eve: The Story of the Halloween Fairy and Christmas Eve: The Joy of Giving.
