The Journal Buddies interactive journaling systems for boys and for girls are both winners of the 2008 Mom’s Choice Awards, an award that represents quality and ingenuity. The Journal Buddies approach to building and encouraging self-esteem during a child’s most vulnerable stage of life, the ages between 7 and 14, is what impressed the Award’s panel of 10 judges the most. Boys and girls can journal alone or they can journal together with a buddy. A buddy can be anyone; a child’s friend, other family members, or other adults. By working together and pointing out the positive traits they like about one another, buddies help each other develop more positive attitudes towards themselves. There is ample space for self-expression plus plenty of ideas on ways to creatively express a user’s feelings, thoghts, artwork, poetry and writing. The journaling system also presents daily thoughts and focus words which users can explore and ponder as they wish. Although designed with boys and girls in mind, adults benefit from Journal Buddies, too. The journaling approach helps adults learn how to focus on the many positive traits, qualities and talents that children possess instead of the negative.

What better way to start back to school then with this awesome next generation caster board. Are you ready to SHRED!? Start shredding in no time with the Shred Sled, the next generation caster board. The first 4-wheel, dual-deck inline caster board, the Shred Sled makes it smoother and easier to start carving up the streets. How it works: Shred Sled’s two boards and flexible connector allow both boards to rotate around the vertical and horizontal axes so it’s easy to maneuver the board. The best part is you don’t even have to push off! For better control and traction, each deck has a grip surface to maximize traction and stability while the concave decks make for better foot control. The 4 x 80mm polyurethane wheels and ABEC-5 bearings are smoother and stronger than standard hardware and unlike other boards, rarely need to be replaced. Riding the Shred Sled feels like a combination of snowboarding, skateboarding and surfing and it’s much easier to control than older 2-wheel generation boards. Great for strengthening the legs and waist muscles, Shred Sled encourages kids to get off the couch and get active outdoors. Available in black, blue or red. Weight: 8.7 lbs; Dimensions: 9.055″W x 32.87″L x 4.72″. * Be sure to wear a helmet and safety gear when using the Shred Sled.*
