Vote for Small for Big in the Best Blogs Awards!

Now on to even better things – this week’s favorite picks online:

  • I think Modern Kiddo has hit upon a goldmine of an idea: The Little Book Report Club.They’ll be featuring all those books we read when we were yutes. You know, Judy Blume, Little House on the Prairie, etc. Because I really do wonder why I liked them then, and what they’d read like now.
  • Buy Modern Baby’s blog does indeed have the Best Pirate Product Roundup Ever, and I quote.
  • The blog It’s Nice That has a really fascinating little stop-motion video featuring all the coolest toys from the 80’s, by Micaël Reynaud.
  • I was first in love with the name: Flatout Frankie, and then I followed with a big crush on the goods: awesome cardboard toys for kids. Found via Lil’ Magoolie.
  • This may be the funniest response to recalled cribs you’ll ever see: 10 Clever Uses for an Old Crib, over at But there are some really great ideas, honestly.
  • And the best dog costume you will ever see? The Star Wars AT-AT dog costume by Katie Mello, found on the Inhabitots blog.
Have a wonderful weekend, then make sure to stop by next week for an awesome giveaway!

Unfortunately that’ the downside to these particular Awards. And some people – ahem, my husband – still haven’t been able to vote because of glitches with the site.
