Must Have Holiday Gifts



We developed an edible organic nail polish after our oldest daughter wanted to start painting her nails by herself. Since she puts everything in her mouth it was horrifying to see what was actually in nail polish, even nail polish for kids. So, after months of experimenting in the kitchen we finally came up with a recipe for Kid Licks.

See Me

See Me! Personalized Storybooks

Kids love being the stars of their very own stories, so just imagine their delight when they discover that their new storybook has a very familiar hero. Personalized storybooks from I See Me! make children feel special while encouraging important skills such as reading, letter recognition, and learning to spell their own names.

Beautifully illustrated and professionally bound, customized books from I See Me! take quality and personalization to the next level. Animals might bring letters one by one to spell out your child’s name. Fairies might bring the letters of your child’s name and then crown her as their fairy princess. The hero might have the same hair color and skin tone as your child, or a photograph of your child’s face might be playfully incorporated into the illustrations.

Storybooks from I See Me! can help children develop basic reading skills, teach them to recognize their own name in print and lay the groundwork for writing their own names. These entertaining books also build self-esteem by celebrating the uniqueness of each child.
