The Hometown All Stars Logo

The Hometown All Stars is a book series for children that focuses on teaching early sports skills along with interactive, educational activities, and more importantly – fun! Kids ages 3-7 years old and parents, teachers, librarians, and others who want to promote “Less Screen, More Green” and get kids outside and active again! The Hometown All Stars series is also for parents who don’t know much about baseball and want to be ahead of the curve when their kids begin to play, for sports enthusiasts looking for a book that doesn’t involve talking animals to read at bedtime to their children, and for anyone interested in promoting the love of baseball and sports overall to a new generation.

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball

Nick's Very First Day of Baseball

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball teaches children about baseball using real coaching techniques. In this interactive storybook, kids will find hidden baseballs in the pictures, answer trivia questions, and there’s even a page for autographs from their favorite players. Fun, interactive and educational.

Magic Bat Day

Magic Bat Day Cover

Magic Bat Day is the first real practice after the Hometown All Stars get their uniforms. Batting is the most fun of all skills and drills! This book concept shows techniques of how to hold the bat and where to stand. Most importantly, it shows that every kid can find their own ‘magic’ bat and the magic within themselves to hit the ball!

My son had never really been one for other sports and baseball was one he enjoyed the most when in gym class at school. This book really encourages kids that are a bit shy when it comes to group sports that they do not have to be like everyone else, they can find what makes a sport special for them and that is an important message to share.

Hyland’s Bumps and Brusises Cream

Let’s face it kids are gonna get bumps and bruises every now and then lol mine do almost every time they go outside it feels like. I am constantly restocking my first aid kit.

I cannot even think of how much I spend in first aid supplies, not to mention how much of the packaging just goes to the wayside. 

When picking out first aid supplies I like to make sure I stock up on all the homeopathic booboo creams. I have always loved the Hylands brand, I have been using Hylands since my son was born. 

So when they let me know about their new Bumps and Brusises cream I was so excited to have a new Hylands prodcut to add to my first aid supply.

We constantly hear about plastic pollution tied to plastic shopping bags and water bottle use, but what about all that plastic that’s being used to package our medicines and personal products?   As consumers demand change, companies are in search of eco-friendlier options.  And, it’s not an easy road or a fast one. 

Hyland’s, a 112 year-old provider of homeopathic medicine, is one example of a company in pursuit of the eco-perfect package.   It’s now introducing its new paper-board package as part of a product line featured in Target stores nationwide included in its ‘Made to Matter’ program.  Hyland’s 4 Kids Bumps ‘n Bruises with Arnica is the first topical ointment stick for treating bumps, bruises, and swelling and it comes in a sustainable packaging technology that’s never been used in chidren’s medince.

Hyland’s has found that eco-perfection in a package is an ongoing process. Apart of this process is Industrial Designer Kara Errickson. As a company that wants to do good, ‘eco-perfection’ today is a massive undertaking. Here’s part of the story told by Kara:

Fun With Milk Crates | Stuffed Animal Storage

So much fun trying to get the kid’s rooms ready for the holidays and new toys and just to get organized in our new house!
The biggest problem we have when it comes to their rooms (mainly my daughter) are all of her stuffed animals. Big and small they are literally EVERYWHERE!

It was definitely time to find a way to corral all these little guys in a nice simple (cheap) way. Here was the solution:

After some slight assembly:
