Role-Playing: When Your Child Wants a Pet


When your child begs for a dog or cat and promises to take care of it, Baby Toolkit has a great suggestion:

If your child wants a dog, BEGS for a dog, and you don't want to shoulder the entire responsibility for a pet, test the child's promises to "take care of the dog." Make an agreement. If your child will wake at a specified earlier time and then "walk" the imaginary dog (10 to 20 minutes) every day for 21 days that you will then begin seriously considering getting a pet. I'd make it a month of walking because that's how long it takes to establish a habit.

The same role-playing can go for feeding the pet, changing the litterbox or bird cage liner, freshening their water--any responsibilities you want your child to assume.

Pets Improve Our Health


According to Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Alerts, pets improve our mental and physical health. "Dogs and cats, even a tankful of fish, calm frazzled nerves and ease anxiety and depression, according to research."


One reason is that pets alter our behavior. When they are near, we tend to calm down and speak more slowly and softly. All types of pets offer distractions from the worries of the day, because we naturally shift our attention to them when they are around. Pets also provide an opportunity to touch and stroke another living thing, which has been shown to be of value to our mental and physical health.

My Pet Fish Soap-- Goldfish in a Bag


Love this! Goldfish in a Bag Soap looks like a goldfish swimming in water. Actually this is a plastic fish embedded in clear, vegetable based glycerin soap shaped like "water in a bag". Fun for parties, guest room, and kids of all ages (except those under 3). After enough washings, a toy pet fish is the reward.

BiOrb Aquarium


This is beautiful.

A great beginners aquarium. The biOrb is easy to setup and has a very stylish, globe-shaped design to embellish any decor. The globe is manufactured form Plexiglas acrylic, stronger than glass. Because of its large water capacity, biOrb provides fish with approximately 10 times more space than a traditional fish bowl.

All you have to do is add water and fish. Everything you need is in one box: biOrb tank, halogen light, bio-media (gravel), filter, air pump, water chemicals, instruction booklet and fish food. Low voltage, so aquarium is safe for children.

Comes with a patented 5-stage filtration system with easy to change filter cartridges. The filter design utilizes a unique systemized five-stage method combining biological, mechanical and chemical filtration.

Available in Black and Silver. Suitable for goldfish, the Mega biOrb can also be converted to a tropical aquarium. The aquarium has a 16 gallon capacity and utilizes the same filtration system and service kit as the Baby biOrb, 8 gallon biOrb, and biUbe.

Available from Amazon.
