Treatment for motion sickness, word play and a little Graeter's to round things out this month.
Looking forward to family car trips this summer, but not to carsick kids in the backseat? Try Psi Bands (two for $14.99), an FDA-approved, drug-free treatment for motion sickness. These colorful, waterproof bands harness acupressure to fight nausea (they also work on morning sickness and nausea caused by anesthesia and chemotherapy).
Available at Babies R Us, CVS or Meijer stores, psibands.comDig In!
Proving you're never too old to change, 144-year-old Graeter's has rolled out two new product lines: Gelato and "A Little Less Indulgent," a reduced-sugar ice cream. The former is an Italian-style treat, while the latter reduces sugar by 50 percent and fat and calories by 25 percent. Both are made with Graeter's famous two-gallon-at-a-time, French-pot production process.
Available online, in Graeter's stores and in select grocery stores, graeters.comWord Play
Hoy's Toys is a Dublin-based purveyor of made-in-Ohio books, toys and learning games. We're loving this United We Stand Word Game ($10): It uses 52 cards to help kids (and crossword-loving grown-ups) learn their Greek and Latin prefixes, suffixes and more! Games can be played solitaire-style or as group competitions.
