Bubblegum. The stuff of legend for my 3.5 yo. We keep telling her she’s too young, while she keeps seeing it all around her, taunting her. Followed by severe begging, pleading, and cajoling. This girl is a master negotiator.
But, I will remain firm. Maybe we’ll add this amazing wooden Gumball Machine from Kaz Shiomo & Kiko+ ($58) to our arsenal. It’s self-preservation really. It will give us the gumption we need to remain firm in our “no”, while simultaneously giving her more gum in one fell swoop than she can count, literally. That should stop negotiations cold.
If gumballs aren’t your family’s tipping point, perhaps these other amazing products from Shiomi & Kiko+ will help. Maybe you’ll find something that will give you and your kids the peace of mind you need!
