‘Tis the Season! Mario Lopez and His Little Ones Team Up with Gymboree

11/18/2014 at 05:00 PM ET

The holidays have arrived at Mario Lopez‘s house!

The TV personality and his family — wife Courtney and their kids Gia Francesca and Dominic – have teamed up with Gymboree to celebrate the kiddie clothing brand’s new campaign, Best Time to Be a Kid.

And as the adorable brother-sister duo prove, nothing beats baking delicious desserts.

Seriously, what better way to get in the seasonal spirit than with some traditional sweet treats? The family of four have fun making the perfect pumpkin pie in the kitchen — with 14-month-old Nico giving Lopez a few swats with the baking spoon!

We Tried It: The Bugaboo Bee3 Stroller

We tried: Bugaboo Bee3 Stroller

Who tried it: Rennie Dyball, PEOPLE.com senior editor

Why she did it: I’ve always wondered whether Bugaboo, the luxe, celeb-loved stroller brand, was worth the hype, and their latest model was released this fall.

Pros: The brand’s newest version of the Bee — their lightweight city stroller — is quite cute to look at, with some cool features to boot. Most strollers won’t allow for a fully upright seated position; there’s always a bit of a recline. Not so with the Bee3, which is a big plus when your little one likes to sit up straight to take in the world.

Inside Bill Horn and Scout Masterson’s Medieval Nursery

11/13/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Every knight is a good night for Bosley Jo.

His parents, Bill Horn and Scout Masterson – who welcomed their second child in August – have created a modern chic sleep space for their baby boy, featuring bold blues, antique accents and a courageous theme.

“We’re so pleased that the nursery turned out the way it did,” the reality stars and design enthusiasts tell PEOPLE exclusively. “It’s fun, colorful and original with a touch of whimsy — just like our baby Boz’s personality.”

Carrie Underwood Glows on the Red Carpet

11/05/2014 at 07:30 PM ET

The CMA Awards are like Carrie Underwood‘s Oscars, so we know the star is always going to turn it out on the carpet (and about 10 more times throughout the show).

And this year the mom-to-be has a little extra sparkle, courtesy of her golden gown — and her gorgeous glow.

For her first look of the night, the co-host (and nominee for Female Vocalist of the Year!), selected a gold heavily-beaded Lorena Sarbu gown featuring a high-low hemline. Her hair was classic Carrie: side-swept waves with a deep part.

We Tried It: FirstBIKE Balance Bike

We tried it: FirstBIKE

Who tried it: Anya Leon, PEOPLE.com writer-editor

Why she did it: I have a 3-year-old who refuses to pedal a bike. Enough said.

I also have a secret. I’ve never really believed all the hype surrounding balance bikes. Honestly, I thought it was one more cute kid product to add to the already long list of maybe-not-so-functional items on the market.

In fact, I had considered buying one as a Christmas gift for my little guy last year, but figured it would make a momentary splash before being pushed to the back of the garage. (Spoiler alert: Nowadays, it’s definitely being pushed — all over my house!)

Happy Halloween! Celeb Kids Show Off Their Spooktacular Costumes

10/31/2014 at 01:32 PM ET

Move over Pepé Le Pew!

Sixteen-month-old North West may not yet be old enough to fully understand the delicious candy that comes along with a good trick-or-treat outing, but she sure does make the sweetest little skunk for Halloween.

Mom Kim Kardashian shared some Instagram pics Friday of her toddler wearing her black and white skunk suit from Pottery Barn Kids, complete with a curled tail and some spiky white fur.

“A skunk is on the loose!” wrote Kardashian, 34, in another shot that shows North romping across a matching black and white checker-boarded floor. “My little stinker is waiting to show daddy her costume. Halloween has come early this morning.”

SwitchCrafted Solves Halloween’s Sugary Situation

10/30/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

The Halloween witches are brewing up something sweet!

Before your costumed kiddies crash from a surplus of sugary treats, cuddle up with your little ones to read the tale of SwitchCrafted – and introduce them to a few wise witches, who are in need of a helping hand.

Written by Audrey Kinsman, the 20-page book tells the story of the Switch Witches, a group of whimsical witches who rely on piles of candy that they can convert into energy.

And from the fuel for their brooms (because the gas station just won’t do!) to keeping their haunted huts warm, the little ladies are in need of a whole lot of colorful confections.
