Okay… I admit it: I’m slightly obsessed with all things related to kids’ entertainment. After the success of my other site, BreezyMama.com, I decided to create a destination for parents looking for the latest and greatest in things to do with kids, including events, kids’ apps, movies, TV entertainment, books, toys, birthday gift ideas and more. Appropriately named For Kids Entertainment, this all-inclusive site will give you a constant supply of fun ideas for you and your children.
