Shoulder Buddies Teach Lessons to Kids

Life's lessons are fun with Shoulder Buddies like Breezee!

Life's lessons are fun with Shoulder Buddies like Breezee!

Shoulder Buddies can help your kids learn special lessons in life. These adorable little creatures can be worn on a child’s shirt, hair, and just about anywhere. Shoulder Buddies put a tangible spin on life’s little lessons—and they’re cute to boot!

Here are some great ways to teach your kids some life lessons:

  • Teach them to live out their passion. It’s not always easy for parents—especially with the responsibilities at home and duties at work. But children mirror their parents and look up to the adults closest in their life. So take the time to follow your own passion and do hobbies that you enjoy. Showing your children that you can make time for your dreams will help them do it for themselves, too.
  • Be thankful in life. If you have a grateful attitude, you’ll generally be happier than someone that doesn’t. Find positive things to be thankful for each day. Your children will learn from that.
  • Admit it when you’re wrong. Really, if you make a mistake… just apologize. By doing so, you’ll teach your kids that it’s okay to make mistakes—parents even do it, too.
  • Show your kids that family is important. Have time together, eat dinner, and share things as a family unit. If they learn that family is an important addition to their lives, it will continue.

As little life lessons are learned, more Shoulder Buddies can be earned! We really like Breezee… she shares her “Frustration Smarts” to help kids think things over when they get mad or frustrated. Now that’s a great lesson, too!

Wubba Nubs are Simply Adorable

This little monkey is perfect for your little monkey!

This little monkey is perfect for your little monkey!

Have you checked out our adorable Wubba Nub pacifiers yet? These sweet little animals are going to be your baby’s new companion! You’ll love the durable one-piece construction of the Wubba Nub. We think it’s brilliant how they carefully calculated the weight and size of each adorable plush animal to ensure that it stays close to the baby’s mouth. Super easy to clean, the Wubba Nub is truly going to be a lifesaver!

If you’re having a hard time getting your baby to use a pacifier, we suggest you try the Wubba Nub. Babies like variety, so you should ideally collect a variety of nipple shapes and features—your baby might have a preference. When you start out, choose something smaller and gradually increase pacifier size as your baby grows. Wubba Nub pacifiers are perfect for bigger babies that like having something to hold on to. The brown puppy, adorable pink pony, or sweet Wubba Nub lamb just might make all the difference to your little one.

Trying to start with a pacifier? When you’re offering a pacifier for the first time, make sure your baby is in a good mood. Offering a pacifier when your baby is hungry, upset, or cranky will only frustrate them further.

If your baby loves pacifiers, then your baby will surely enjoy Wubba Nubs from Coppin’s Gifts!

We’re well into August, and with September looming over the horizon, many parents have started school shopping. Whether you’re shopping for a high school student or sending your child to kindergarten for the first time, make sure they start the school year off on the right foot by having everything they need. Here is a list of school supplies to help students ease into the school year.

  • Great fashion is a must for every high school student. After you dress them with the latest trends, provide your child with the hottest looks in locker décor with Locker Lookz! This complete line of locker furnishings includes wallpapers, rugs, magnets, magnetic bins, dry erase boards, mirrors and locker lighting options. Don’t leave your high schooler lacking in locker fashion this September!
  • School uniforms can be a bust, but adding a Pillow Tie to your child’s school uniform wardrobe is a must! These neckties will dress up every boy’s school uniform, while providing them with a comfy spot to nap on the bus ride home. Pillow Ties from CoppinsGifts.com have hidden inflatable pouches that quickly inflate for napping after a long day at school.
  • Kindergarten is a big step for children. Going to school for the first time can be tough for some kids, something that reminds them of home may help them to relax. Even though they’re away from you all day they’ll still need to take a short nap, so give them a Happy Napper to cuddle with. These adorable stuffed animals come with their own homes. When nap time arrives, children can hug the stuffed animal or use it as a pillow by zipping it up inside of its home. Choose from a variety of animals such as a cow in a barn, a dragon in a castle, a dog in a dog house, and more!
  • If you’re looking to provide your kindergartener with a pillow and a blanket then My Pillow Pets are the nap time friends for you! These stuffed animals double as pillows, and CoppinsGifts.com also has blankets to match. Children can choose from a variety of animals and matching blankets including a lady bug, frog, monkey, pig, zebra and many more!
