Mattress Pad for College Dorms
If you are sending one of your children off to college chances are you are thinking about helping him or her set up their dorm room.
A DormTopper mattress pad is a must-have for college dorm rooms.
Sadly, your standard issue college bed isn’t a very nice place to sleep. The mattress is likely old and stained with poor airflow. A squeaky, lumpy mattress with worn out cushioning is no place to get a good night’s sleep.
The solution is simple… Dorm Topper.
A Dorm Topper Mattress Pad is two inches thick, body contouring and moisture wicking.

Acne Skin Care
Back to school time is perfect for talking to your teens about taking care of their skin and starting a new cleansing routine.

These fun devices can help children (and adults) to focus on tasks if they suffer from ADHD, anxiety, or autism by giving the child a way to expel nervous energy. Spinners also give a calming visual stimulation.

Kidibank™ is a great app for teaching financial learning, goals, and screen time management for your kids.
Many schools request or even require students to bring their own devices to school. If your children are taking their tech to school, they’ll appreciate knowing they won’t run out of power on their devices while at school or at their extra curricular activities.
A Power Bank portable charger can charge several devices at once or even the same device multiple times over before you need to recharge it.

Children have to have access to a computer for some if not all of their schooling. Some schools require your child to have their own laptop that they can bring to and from school and home. A Macbook Air will give you the apple features you love without adding a lot of pounds to your child’s backpack.
A 13.3 screen is big enough for your child to use well without hauling around a monster of a computer. 4 gb of memory and 128 gb of speed means it’s fast enough and has enough space for anything your child might need to do.
