The Silver Post Review_By Two In Tow & On The Go

Review: Our Text-to-Postcard Experience with The Silver Post

Twenty-eight year old Carolyn McRae was inspired by her time as a volunteer with the elderly to bring joy into other people’s lives.  And she knows that nothing makes family more happy than little ones.

“I’ve volunteered with senior citizens since I was 14, and have seen first-hand how happy grandparents are when they can hold a photo of their grandkids,” McRae said. “It always warmed by heart and I wanted to create more of these moments.”

But … she also knows that sometimes (ok, so maybe all the time), it’s hard for millennials to print out a picture or send a physical card through, (gasp!), snail mail.

That’s why in February 2017, she founded the Boston-based tech company The Silver Post to bridge the tech gap between grandparents and their grandchildren. The company operates off the concept of “you text us your pics and Grandma gets them in the mail!” by translating those texts into a physical postcard.

Toy Review: Checkered Fun Construction Vehicle Set

Review: Give Fitness Health Club in Atascadero, introduction

For more than a year, I’ve been trying to wrangle fitness back into my life. To, you know, stay sane. And, to shed some of this craziness that two babies in four years has done to my body. What I’m talking about is consistently getting in a real workout two to three times a week. The kind of exercise that gets my heart rate up, makes some of that endorphin magic happen and unplugs me from the daily mom scene for at least 30 minutes.

Toy Review: Step2 Euro Edge Kitchen

First, I gotta say thank you to Step2 for letting me test this Euro Edge Kitchen as part of the Step2 toy tester program.

Second, thank goodness for toy designers who really get what makes playtime fun because the kids loved this thing. We got it around Christmas time, and it kept their attention, had some engaging light-up features and lots of extra accessories including a smart phone toy and extra dishes … But, first, lets get to the important stuff — what was this giant play kitchen like in my living room?

Two In Tow & On The Go Review: iMonster Snack Keeper_2

Review: Nuby iMonster Snack Keeper

We received an iMonster Snack Keeper compliments of Nuby in exchange for our honest review. Overall, it’s a super cute addition to our snack game that looks more like a toy than a container. But, unfortunately, I tend not to use it because it’s fairly difficult to open without spills its contents all over the floor.
