Two more holiday shopping ideas…

I know I said I’d stop sharing holiday gift ideas…but I just can’t keep these two items to myself!

wheely bug

#1: The Wheely Bug. Rumor has it that Santa is getting our little Anna a Prince Lionheart Wheely Bug for Christmas this year. This is the BEST little scootter-type toy. Our friends from the UK have the bumble bee, which is where Anna first tried it out. The wheels spin in every direction so it turns on a dime, and it literally glides over the floor. SOOO much better than those clunky ride-on toys that you usually see. I think Anna might be getting the ladybug…but Santa wouldn’t give up all his secrets.

kodak zi6

#2: Kodak Zi6 Video Camera. Kodak was the platinum sponsor for SocialLuxe Lounge this summer (which I co-hosted). As part of the swag bags they gave away 200 of their Zi6 cameras to our party goers (including me!). I’ve tweeted about how much I love the camera but have never done a post. So here it is: I love this camera…way more than the Flip cameras I have had in the past. It fits in my purse nicely, is easy to use, the battery lasts a long time between charges, and it takes great video…and it’s only $100! The Zi8 has come out since I received my Zi6, so if you like being cutting edge, go for that one, I’m sure it’s great!

Okay, I think I’m done with the gift ideas. But I’m not making any promises.


  1. I think I want to get the Kodak for my son. He’s going to be 5 and it may be a bit much but I think he’d really get a kick out of being able to take movies and such!

    I think it would be perfect for you son! he really would have fun…and only 100 bucks? so great! πŸ™‚

  3. 3

    We have that ladybug and it’s a hit. My two and three year olds love it. Works best on hardwood floors.

  4. perfect, all we’ve got it hardwood floors! I can’t wait for santa to bring it next week. πŸ™‚

  5. 5

    These wheely bugs look really fun, are they suitable on very short pile carpet or laminate flooring?

    surprisingly, it rolls quite well on our carpet – and it’s not even that short of a pile. laminate flooring – for sure glides like crazy. and as far as I can tell it wouldn’t be damaging to the laminate flooring in any way. it’s a very fun toy! πŸ™‚

    we wish we had gotten the small one – I will say that. for our 2 year old the large was a little too big. but she still loves it! πŸ™‚
