Gogo's Crazy Bones Series 2

My seven-year-old son has been asking me “When can I buy Gogo’s Series 2?” every day for several months now. Well, the day has finally arrived where I can say “They’re HERE”!

Gogo’s have evolved and Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s has them! Series 2 Flow Pack is now available in stores and online.  Also, exclusively in stores, Gogo’s Crazy Bones Gold Series Limited Edition tin. This tin makes a perfect gift for any Gogo collector-each tin contains 10 EXCLUSIVE Gogo’s and some of the most valuble Gogo’s!

Ottawa, get kids moving!

Here at Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s, we just got in a new line of awesome skipping gear including jump ropes, double dutch ropes, stilt walkers and skip-its! It’s from Just Jump It  and it’s available at all our stores now! In the spirit of keeping active, we wanted to get parents talking about more ways to keep their kids moving this summer!

We all know the benefits of keeping our kids active. It keeps the body healthy, encourages socialization & teamwork and provides a foundation for keeping fit in to adulthood.

But where to start with your little offspring?

Rule number one (and there is only one rule) Make it fun. If it’s fun your kids will be asking for more and that’s all you need to keep fit. Here are some ideas to get kids moving. Since it’s spring, we’re going to keep it a list of Fun Active Things to do in Ottawa for Spring and Summer!

Rediscover Ottawa and go for a family walk or bike ride! There the paths along the Rideau Canal and more paths along the Ottawa River. Perhaps opt for a stroll through the Ottawa Byward Market you can visit the street vendors and buy some fresh produce while exercising, how cool is Ottawa?!

Want to add a twist to the family walk? Go out at night and bring a flashlight. Be sure to look up and stargaze as well!

Or simply head to your local park and toss around a ball or frisbee, it can be that simple! Don’t ignore the free public tennis courts either-even if you’ve never picked up a racket, there is still tons of fun in trying and who knows, your kid may be the next Roger Federer!

If more adventurous, make your way to the Gatineau Hills for hiking, kyaking, canoeing and even camping!

Go for a family Swim at the local beach or public pool. There are a number of wading pools as well-be sure to bring lots of fun water toys. For a more planned trip head to the Kanata Wave Pool or the new and impressive Calypso Waterpark!

Game On! Organize an impromptu neighbourhood game of basketball or street hockey. Or how about double dutch jump ropes? Maybe even hacky sack, don’t be shy to try something new.

Take your dog for a walk, Fido deserves the exercise too. Even if you don’t have a dog, head to an off-leash park where you can bird-watch AND Dog-watch at the same time!

Remember to support your kids in everything they try and allow children to include their friends!

Let us know some other ways you keep your kids moving in the warm weather!
