I also live in Madison and Pop Deluxe is my GO-TO store for gifts! I cannot sing their praises high enough and I am thrilled to see them featured on Ohdeedoh!

Pudgie pies are a campfire dessert staple! My son loves the cherry pie and I'm fond of the Nutella pie. Take two slices of bread, fill with whatever your heart desires, close the pie iron and toast over an open fire to sweet perfection!

The best part is my family made these pies when I was a child, and now I am continuing the tradition with my own children.

Pudgie pies are WONDERFUL over an open fire too! If you didn't grow up making these, you should start now...

Don't forget about "Highlights" or their pre-school version "High Five". We've been subscribing to "High Five" for over a year now and my son loves receiving it in the mail every month. We like it so much we gave a gift subscription to our nephew too.

I'm all for "greening" Halloween and I am a fan of Fair Trade... BUT I am REALLY not a fan of the reverse trick or treating. It strikes me as very rude to have my child lecture a treat-giver on the why the treat they just received was not good enough (in case it was not Fair Trade). If I were the treat-giver, I would question why I even bothered to participate in this tradition.

This is such a fantastic idea! I wish I would have thought of it!

I'm a very political person, and where I agree that more energy should be spent on healthcare reform and education - I think this party is completely cute and innocent. Correct me if I am wrong, but I've always thought Ohdeedoh is a blog about beautiful design, innovative products, and fun ideas for families. This party clearly fits that bill.

Plus, finding out the sex of your baby is a BIG deal regardless if you find out at 20 weeks or 40 weeks and not just for the parents alone. Everyone who cares about this family wants to know! So let these people celebrate! Life is hard enough to rain on their parade.

I wouldn't be able to sleep with this next to my bed! A definite NO!

Our first faucet cover was the Boon Flo. We loved the design but we also had difficulty cleaning it. When the Moby came out I immediately bought one and we haven't been happier. It's really cute and way easier to maintain.

My son LOVES Automoblox. I bought one for him last Christmas because I loved the design and I am happy to say he plays with it regularly. Before he knew how to take it apart (and put back together), he just zoomed it around. I've since purchased a couple minis and he loves them just as much. Please keep in mind, this is not a toy for the under 2 year set though.

I was excited about this portable changing table until I saw it in the store. It was VERY wobbly and didn't seem like it would hold much weight at all. I love the idea, but we passed in the end because it didn't appear sturdy enough.

Fashion Plates were one of my favorite toys as a child. Thanks for the flashback!

I have 8 of these "Friends" and not only do I find them cute, my 16mos son ADORES them. They are a perfect toy to pull out at a restaurant to occupy little hands.
