Trying to figure out the perfect gift for the little ones in your life? My granddaughter is 2 and a half and she’s extremely smart for her age, which is why I wanted to get her some fun educational toys to help her continue to learn. I found Educational Insights and was extremely happy they wanted to work with me.

I’m a Gramma to a beautiful, funny, smart little girl who was born in July of 2014. She’s the joy of my family and I’m so very proud to be a gramma (an alternate spelling for grandma)! I am a coffee, music, movie and outdoor lover! My family and I love picnics, festivals and concerts. Spending time with my family is the best part of my life. I love my job as well! Blogging and product reviewing has given my family and I a lot and I have also learned a lot and made a lot of friends.
