Just to explain the sudden complete lack of posting (as opposed to the slow posting of the last couple of months): I wanted to be sure the existence of this blog was OK with a new boss at the day job. Permission has now been reissued, and posts of a more prolific nature should be forthcoming, starting later today.
I'm a NYC magazine editor, and a former children's-entertainment editor at Cookie magazine. My wife and I have two young sons, and we're always on the lookout for children's products that are appealing to them and also to us. (Disclosure: Like most reviewers, print and online alike, I often receive free copies of the items I cover here.)
