Consider this a sonogram of sorts. A sneak peek at what is about to launch on to the web on Monday, October 3rd. You can see our current version of KidzVuz now. But, here’s a Wordless Wednesday of what’s about to launch.
KidzVuz is a site exclusively for kids ages 7-12 where they can create reviews about tech, toys, books, movies and with the new site – travel, food, pets and sports. So, basically everything a kid would ever want to talk about. It’s anonymous – user names only – safe and completely moderated. Also, IT’S REALLY COOL!!!
So get ready for the big launch on Monday and join us for our Twitter launch party on October 5th at 10pm where we will be hosting awesome giveaways and talking about kids using technology to get creative. Let’s empower our kids through tech, rather than scaring them!

Over at my podcast The Blogging Angels we are dishing on Twitter parties and blog giveaways. Shockingly we have a slew of opinions about these social media tools and the right way to do them. But, we couldn’t just sit back and talk about them – we decided to host a giveaway of our own! Thanks to our friends at Intel we are giving away a super beautiful, really fast 17-inch Dell Inspiron Laptop with an Intel Core i5 processor and Intel WiDi (that’s wireless display for you Luddites – with an adapter you can stream from your laptop to your TV -yup, it is cool).
So click on over the The Blogging Angels to find out how to enter (and if you listen to the podcast you will learn about the extra 2 ways to enter the giveaway!) We’re moms, we believe in rewarding good listeners!

One of my fears as a mom is that as winter approaches my daughters will spend more and more time indoors being sedentary with unspent energy making all of us a little nuts. So, I love Wii games that get my girls moving. Just Dance Kids is one of those games. First of all my 8 year old daughters are very wary of games that could seem too young. Just Dance Kids has two modes – older and younger kid, which instantly put them at ease and garnered some “cool” points. On the mom-of-the-80′s plus side there are songs like Holiday and Mickey in the dance list – though not sung by Madonna or Toni Basil unfortunately – but still some songs for a mom who remembers wearing leggings the first time around!
Just Dance Kids is not easy – and best of all not easy to cheat. My daughters found out long ago that they could cheat the Wii by just moving the remote and not their whole body. That’s hard to do with this game. You’ve got to keep up and keep your body moving to get the remote going the right way and earn your points. The only downside is that there is no practice or learning session, you just jump right and in and try to follow the lead dancer. It’s not that easy to pick up even on the easy level. Some rehearsing would have been nice. But, overall the game kept them dancing, and moving. On a cold, rainy day it was just the thing to work off those Turkey Day leftovers and keep cabin fever at bay.
