MomBrandLove: Whims and Wonder

MomBrandLove is the newest category on this blog. This is in awe of mompreneurs who lovingly put a lot of effort in their business along with juggling tasks for kids, husband, the home and everything in between! I hope that my blog will be an avenue for other moms to discover mom-made products. Moms support moms, yeah!

Some mommy-brands come about because two moms thought about putting up a business way before they became moms. Such is the case of Gillian and Kris, the moms behind Whims and Wonder.

Whims and Wonder

I discovered Whims and Wonder when I was browsing Facebook for ideas what to give Z’s classmates as a good-bye gift. Gillian, one-half of the moms behind the brand whom I knew since mIRC days, shared a picture of PJ Masks masks and that happened to be the boys’ favorite cartoon. So, I sent them a message and it was a smooth transaction even if my order was kinda rushed already as I needed them in less than a week. It was a unique and useful gift which didn’t cost much. Too bad, I wasn’t able to take a picture of Z and his classmates wearing them.

Z packed and wrote the notes by himself!

Gillian and Kris, the moms behind Whims and Wonder believe in learning through play and in spite of their busy schedules, manages to have quality playtime with their kids. I think this is very important now that our kids’ generation are tech-savvy. Pretend play boosts language and socio-emotional skills as well as confidence and imagination. Sometimes, I use this as a teaching moment, especially now that both kids’ character are developing. I’m really happy with this mom-find as I’m sure I’ll be needing their creativity when the kids need to be in costume!

Toddler Tidbits: Time For Your Check-Up!

Z will make a riot every time we bring him to his pedia. My solution? Buy him his own doctor’s kit! He likes fixing his toys’ boo-boos and checking-up his favorite patient, Daddy!

But after all the pretend play, he will still say no to the doctor! Any tips?!
