Why not party?

Studies have proven what many of us already knew: It's pretty easy to get down in the dumps on Wednesdays. Couples are more likely to argue, kids get in more trouble with teachers and parents, and people report lower job satisfaction mid-week. Researchers think this is because today is the furthest point from any weekend -- we no longer feel relaxed from the last one, and the next still feels a long way off.

One great way to beat the blues is to have a party with our Peekaboo Party Bundle; this package combines five of our popular Peekaboo games at a 40% discount. Besides learning cause-and-effect, young ones can be introduced to word recognition, animals with the sounds they make, healthy food choices, and the brilliant artwork of Charley Harper and Ed Emberley. It's a great boost to brighten the middle of a chilly week.

If you need a bigger push this week, Animal Planet and Uber are bringing the fun. Today only, rescued puppies can be delivered to your home or office for play-time. The event is only for a limited time and selected cities, but really, what's better than a big pile of puppies? The only thing we can think of is getting to play with puppies in order to support a great cause, because the proceeds go to support animal shelters nationwide.
