Frans Hofmeester

Every parent can agree, that time just goes by too fast when you’re raising children. That’s why we love this time lapse video by Frans Hofmeester, who filmed his daughter every week from birth up until twelve years old. It’s truly amazing to watch her transform from a tiny baby to a chatty preteen.

This video makes us smile every time…

Meet the Goodwins

Pin It


Not every family has the opportunity to travel the globe with a three year old and a baby in tow, but now we can live vicariously through the Goodwins. Follow their lives and adventures as they cover continents while being filmed for a future movie. In the meantime, we can get a glimpse into the culture of their own family with this trailer. While raising a family we can all apply Aamion Goodwin’s words “To have to wait for something is what we all need. Slow yourself down and you’ll see so much more.”

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have Betty White read a story to you and your child? Probably not, but now you can experience just that, thanks to this amazing website Storyline is an on-line streaming video program that features Screen Actors Guild members reading classic children’s books aloud. We loved listening to James Earl Jones read us a very moving book called “To Be A Drum” and Ernest Borgnine’s big smile as he read us “The Rainbow Fish”. Amazing!

Twist Together Lamp

August 22nd, 2011


We are intrigued by the Twist Together Lamp, a new lighting platform that encourages you to make your own lamp. The radiant light adds a warm and modern ambiance to any room and kids love them because they look like Legos! Additionally, the LEDs provide a safe, long-lasting, and low voltage light source that consume less power than a night light!

Take a glimpse at this video to marvel at this invention!

Potterize yourself

Peach Tree Pottery, a pottery shop open everyday in Los Angeles, opened in 1999 as a place for people to come learn how to throw pots and for artists to show their work. Classes are provided for adults and children and even 3 year-olds are encouraged to start with private lessons to get an experience on the wheel. At Bumbleride, we believe in unleashing your creativity, and can’t think of a more fun, relaxing, and friendly place to learn pottery than Peach Tree Pottery. Take a peek below at a video that gives you more details on Peach Tree.
