The Internet is Fun
Brian referenced using XBMC on the OUYA (XBMC works on the PC as well)
We drool over SkyDog: A Web App and Smart Family Wi-Fi Router

Nicole backed a Kickstarter project called SoapSox and Mateo’s bathtime is a lot more fun :) Stuffed Animals in the tub!

Family Game Night!
Recommendation from Nicole: Chug Patrol – $4.99 – iOS & GooglePlay
Recommendation from Brian: Skylanders
Recommendation from Cleeo: Several ideas for toddler games that the big kids can get into! Scavenger hunts, “Power Tubes”, Washi Tape/Popsicle Sticks and matching, String art

Solicited Advice References
My Tot Clock – please note that it’s a little bright so you might put some window tint film on the front (good for the windows too!)

Great games to RPG games for kids: Lego Marvel, Lego Star Wars, classic Dungeons & Dragons or Dungeon Board Game
