Last year September, I posted about Just Between Friend's (JBF) Fall sale and I scored so many wonderful things from it! JBF has 2 sales a year, a spring and a fall sale, this year's spring sale will be starting March 6th-9th. Why try to drive around town looking for good garage sales with no guarantee they will have good quality children's items for sale. Why not just head to JBF and know there will be tons of good quality children's clothes, toys, furniture, books, and even maternity items. When I was at the last sale, there were items from newborn through size 14 in kids for both genders! There was so much to buy and tons of things that I wish I had waited until the JBF sale to buy! The exact same potty bench that I had for Kiggster at home and spent some pretty pennies on was on sale for less than half what I paid for and it was in excellent condition. I got a lot of new (yup, even new stuff) items for Kiggster like an … [Read more...]
I actually was looking for a baby wash for Kiggster that wasn't filled with tons of chemicals or junk and that's how I got to trying Miessence's Sunflower Body Wash. What I didn't expect was how much I'd love it for me too. I knew it was something that was meant for the whole family and great for babies as a bath wash product but I am one that is sometimes stuck in her ways and since I already had a ton of body washes, I was just getting it was Kiggster in mind. I was very wrong! This bottle actually started out towards the edge of the bathtub because that's where I could reach it best while giving Kiggster a bath. Well, let's just say, it quickly moved its way up top to where the showerhead is and where all the treasured bath products aka my bath products are kept! At first I was using it as a bubble bath but I wasn't using very much product because I didn't want to "waste" it since the bottle … [Read more...]
I love toys that are gender neutral and are multi-functional. Nuby's Fish Swoosh Bath Time Play Set is a basketball hoop and bath squirts in one. Plus the colors can be used for both boys and girls, which is great if you have multiple kids or just want to keep it for more than one child. The fish swoosh bath toy needed some assembly but only just some clicking and snapping together the hoop to the board and it's ready to go. The suction cups on the toy are nice and strong, wish I could say the same for other suction cup bath toys we own. It comes with 3 different colored bath squirt fishes and during bath time we love to name the colors of the fish before we have a water fight with them. Then we cinch up the drawstring at the bottom of the basketball net and we dunk some fishes. Ok, I like to cinch up the net but Kiggster likes to free the fishes...she thinks I'm trapping them! The bath squirts float in the water and … [Read more...]
Kiggster loves bath times and that might even be an understatement! So of course, I am always in a state of searching for the next bath toy for her! That's where I can introduce you to Nuby's Tub Time Turtle. The tub time turtle can float on his back, bobble around on his tummy, and when you lift him out of the water, he creates a trickling waterfall effect! Kiggster's been having a great time with him in the bath, Tub Time Turtle has a cute little smile on him and little holes scattered strategically throughout his turtle shell. So when she first lifted turtle from out of the water and saw the water coming out of the shell into the tub, all she could say was... "Wow!" She made turtle go from the top of the tub and dive down into the water, made him float, and made him sprinkle water on her! It's a pretty lightweight toy and has tons of places to put her little hands, whether it's cupping it over the shell, holding it … [Read more...]
I had been trying to find a good to-go cup for Kiggster when we give her milk but it seems a lot of cups trap milk into the little crevices or inside the tiny straws and cause mold to grow or make the cup smell funny. So I wanted a cup that didn't have a straw, was no spill, and relatively easy to clean. That's when I got a Nuby No Spill Sport Sipper for review. What I liked was that the cup did not utilize an inside straw but is more of a sports bottle type design. Here is what Nuby says about their No-Spill Sport Sipper: No matter what recreational activity your child is engaged in, the No-Spill™ Sport Sipper by Nûby™ is perfect for parents and children on the go! Why? Because Nûby™ developed the Sport Sipper with an innovative, ergonomic shape with easy grips that ensures a comfortable and secure grasp for you child. Also included is the unique soft silicone straw with a built-in valve; it opens with sucking action … [Read more...]
I was recently given a Nuby Tear-Free Rinse Pail for review and I have to admit, I wasn't sure how it would work out for us. Kiggster loves water but hates having water in her eyes and can't be bothered with me rinsing her while she is playing with her toys either! When I received the tear-free rinse pail, I was surprised at the size, for some reason, I thought it was going to be a lot smaller but it was actually bigger than Kiggster's head. There weren't dimensions given in the item description but when I measured it, it was approximately, x x x. The larger size turned out to be a good thing because I didn't have to continuously refill the pail to get her head all rinsed. It's only been taking around 2 scoops of water with the pail to get out all the suds! Here is what Nuby says about their rinse pail: The Tear-Free Rinse Pail is designed to make bath time easier and … [Read more...]
