Made in Poland – exceptional and with passion!

Well, it seams half of my readers are people who live abroad, which makes me very happy. Just behind the Polish readers are the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia and others. That’s probably because I write my blog also in English and raise topics related to parenting based on the theories of world fameous specialists. Besides, I praise / recommend foreign products (toys and not only), the way of a healthy lifestyle and nutrition, which are practiced in the world, etc. However, I would like to dedicate today’s post to our Polishness, Polish products and producers, and thereby show to the world what does it mean – Made in Poland 🙂 Continue reading

Mother’s Day on Kashtanova Street

On the Kashtanova Street, there was a day like every day, but yet a little bit different one. First of all – it was rainy. But still, at Kashtanky home there was a lot of sun, like usually. Mom Kashtanka was already preparing breakfast, while next to her was sitting little Lucy, when suddenly a little Fifi ran into the kitchen:
– Mom, I want to hug you!
– Oh, Fifi, how nice it is to be hugged in the very morning – told the mother, hugging her son too.

Unusual animated picture book

The book New York in Pyjamarama, which recently joined our Smart Kid Library, and which we will present today, is not an ordinary book. This are magical moving pictures, which certainly will attract attention of any toddler for a longer time. In this book, there was used a very old technique of animationombro cinema” – based on an optical illusion. You just put a striated foil (attached to the book) on the pictures and very slowly move from one edge side to the other, and the pictures come alive! We recommend it and wish you a lot of fun.

Wolin Island – shots from Spring holidays

How was your Spring holiday? Which places have you visited? Did you have good weather? This year, we spent these few days of rest at the Polish seaside. This time, on the Western coast in Miedzywodzie on Wolin island, where the Spring has already arrived and the weather was good. Of course, we spent our time on the beach in a slightly different way than in Summer, because the temperatures are still hesitating and cool breeze still blows from the East 🙂 Enjoy a few shots. We recommend this place for a very relaxing holiday. Just take a look how beautiful our Polish country is! Continue reading
