What's Up, City Kid?! - FAO SCHWARZ IS CLOSING!

One of the most iconic New York City spots is closing on July 15th! Have you ever been to FAO SCHWARZ toy store? Well it is on Fifth Avenue in NYC and it is the most iconic toy store EVER! I remember going there as a child and being totally enamored by the huge stuffed animals and the loads of toys on every floor. Since it's closing in a month, I had to bring Tristin and Tyler there to do a little shopping and take it all in before it closes. So if you can't make it to NYC, Tristin and Tyler have got you covered -- in this episode of What's Up, City Kid?! go inside FAO Schwarz so you have a piece of the store too before it's gone!

What's Cool: Throwboy!

THROWBOY3

THROWBOY3TEXT How cool are these emoji pillows by our friends over at Throwboy? When the team over at Throwboy sent these over I surprised the boys with them and they were ecstatic! They kept hugging them like they were their brand new friends! Lol! Not only do these pillows look cool, the feel awesome and the boys literally sleep with them, bring them to the couch while they watch TV, take them to the park and hang with them (ha!) and soon you'll also see them in our new video series What if...!  So, guess what Throwboy is giving our readers 15% off Throwboy products using code TRISTINANDTYLER for one week only!! So head to their site and see all of the fun designs they have. You're welcome! xo, Tiffany

What's Cool: Playing with Food at Polarn O. Pyret

SONY DSC

As you know, Tristin and Tyler LOVE to cook. They also love to eat, pretty much everything (!!) but I am big stickler on not allowing the boys to play with their food. Well, last weekend thanks to our friends at Swedish children's wear brand Polarn O. Pyret, we made a HUGE exception as we let kids get creative with healthy ingredients to launch Polarn O. Pyret's Festive Kitchen Collection

From adorable chef hats, aprons and clothing with animated healthy food characters, this collection will definitely inspire your little guy or gal to get in the kitchen and hopefully... eat their veggies! Definitely check out the collection and take a peek at how our friends at the event got creative! Even parents got in on the action! Does your kid like to cook?

Tristin + Tyler's Weekend Picks: 11.14.14

the weekend 11.14

Happy Weekend! Here's what we think you should do this weekend..no pressure!

FOOD:  Well, this weekend we're excited because Tristin + Tyler are hosting a fun food project at Polarn O. Pyret's Chambers Street store from 2-4pm! Polarn O. Pyret is launching awesome gear for kid chefs (the hats you see above and more) and we're excited to be there and craft with food! If you're nearby, join us at 299 Chambers Street.

FASHION: The boys are all about their Dr. Martens boots these days. This weekend try rocking yours, get some new ones or, if you missed our camo boots post, enjoy it here!

FUN: One of our FAVORITE exhibits is back in NYC till November 20th. Have you ever checked out Canstruction. This exhibit not only shows the amazing artistic skills of individuals who can basically craft anything out of cans of food, the exhibit is philanthropic because the food is donated to local hunger relief organizations at the end of the exhibition. Art that gives back. Love.

Well, there's our picks, make sure and tag us with @tristinandtyler in your photos if you take our advice and do, rock, or see any of our picks! We hope to see you this weekend! Come and play with your food with us!

Enjoy xx

 

Cooking with Tristin + Tyler: Raddish Kids

SONY DSC

Guess, what? I'm never buying strawberry jam again -- thanks to Raddisha subscription cooking kit for kids. Cooking in the kitchen with kids isn't easy. I personally get a little nervous and want to jump in every thirty seconds and help out even though I probably shouldn't.  I love to see Tristin + Tyler's skills grow on the stove and with knives, but since I don't love to cook, I need a little motivation to keep the boys' progressing. Raddish gives kids the skills and helpful tips they need to complete a recipe, and it all comes right in your mailbox! Don't get me wrong, your child will still need supervision while they work on a recipe, but it was nice to see T+T take charge and get started gathering ingridients and understanding what they needed to do to get the job done using the helpful cards in the kit. I still can't believe that T+T and their 4 year-old cousin Maddie made their own strawberry jam! Honestly, it tasted better than the store-bought version in my fridge. The best part about this adventure was that when they were all done the boys said: "Now we know what we are eating!" Does it get better than that? If you have a little guy or gal who wants to get started in the kitchen, starting with Raddish is a good, safe and fun way to go! xx

#1FunThing: Play A Game Outdoors!

SONY DSC

Happy Friday! This weekend's #1FunThing challenge is to play game outdoors! Whether it's UNO, Clue, charades or something else, head outdoors and play it and do something fun. The boys all of a sudden are so into playing chess. Honestly, I can't stand it. Too much thinking going on. I do so much analytical thinking at work so once I am "playing" I REALLY want to be "playing." I am glad they like it though, it really encourages them to think strategically.  Will you join our #1FunThing challenge this week??? If you do, we'll feature you right here on our site!

Speaking of features, meet our two friends who joined the Roll with Us #1FunThing challenge!  First up, check out the cutie with the sunglasses! It's none other than the little face of @prestons_laundry on Instagram. Love that he rocks his style even when he's speeding on his scooter!  We're SO excited that we got a cool teenager that knows how to do tricks on his bike doing the #1FunThing challenge! He's really good so make sure to check out Evin on Instagram at @evinmcglovin.
