Vamplets - Lilly Rose Shadowlyn by KAMHI WORLD
Lily Rose is surprisingly well behaved for a baby Vampyre. She plays well and shares with others, not a trait normally found in Vamplets. Although Lily Rose is sweet she has a dark side. She will smile and hug you then bite you thinking nothing is wrong with that. If she appears exceptionally sweet and loving...be careful when approaching her! She can fly into fits of rage when denied her hugs and "Vampyre kisses" which can be lethal! At all times have on hand a jar of Poison Black Apple Sauce...unsweetened. This is her favorite treat and should calm her down immediately. Lily Rose Shadowlyn is 10" tall. She comes with her own Death Certificate. ( Watch Video) 8/12/2010 (MSRP: $16.95; Age: 8 and Up)

Lightning Bug Literacy Kit, Level K by LIGHTNING BUG LEARNING
Lightning Bug Literacy Kit Kindergarten Edition is designed to teach children essential skills that build a strong foundation for reading and writing. This program aims to help kids gain confidence while mastering grade level phonics, reading and writing skills. "This comprehensive, teacher-designed kit builds a foundation for literacy: reading, writing, reading comprehension and handwriting," Lightning Bug Learning President Julie Rebboah told TDmonthly.
— The mom blogger at Welcome to Our Wonderland read both Magic Letters and Magic Words from the kit. She stated that the “text is predictable so your child can learn the story and participate,” leading to “the clicking moment” when letter sounds and words are associated in the child’s mind. The reviewer and her daughter enjoyed the books “more then most other word family books.”
— Jenny Thompson of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine reviewed Magic Letter, Magic Words and the audio CD from the kit. Jenny exclaimed “I am not exaggerating when I say that these books changed our lives! These were the first books my daughter was enthusiastic about reading. She could not wait to read each story.” ( Watch Video) 8/17/2010 (MSRP: $99.95; Age: 4 to 6)
