Little Partners: Learning Tower & Art Easel Review & Giveaway

Learning Tower Collage

Ever wonder how you can get your kids more involved in your day-to-day activities without sacrificing time from those activities (insert laundry, dishes, cooking, baking, crafting, etc)?!  I was getting pretty good at doing everything one handed while holding Kiggster until carpal tunnel hit me and then I needed an alternative. Thankfully, I found Little Partners' Learning Tower and was able to do a review of their Learning Tower and Art Easel in Pink.  So a little background about why we sought out for a Learning Tower in the first place: I was working a full time job previously while Honey worked 2 jobs and was in graduate school full-time.  We had someone watching Kiggster during the daytimes and when Honey and I came home from work/school, we were scrambling to get dinner on the table.  We barely had time together as a family before bath and bedtimes occurred.  Kiggster always wanted to be in the kitchen with us, want us to carry her so she could … [Read more...]

Gutzy Gear: Backpack Straps & Patches Review & Giveaway

Gutzies Collage

I was given the chance to throw a Gutzy Gear party and though Kiggster is a bit on the young side (22 months), I wanted to have a party for those I knew that had school-aged kids and were heading back to school!  Everyone that came to the party was excited to pick out their patches and start decorating their backpack straps with them!  But before we show you that, let's find out what Gutzy Gear is all about:  Gutzy Gear is a great, new way to express yourself by customizing your backback, sports duffel, messenger bag, and more! Gutzies are cool looking removable patches. Gutzies stick to a Gutzy strap cover that you put wherever you want to go Gutzy! With 56 Gutzies in a series and new Gutzies constantly being introduced, you can collect and trade a world of Gutzies. But Gutzy Gear is even more… Gutzy Gear is a lifestyle! Gutzy Gear is about showing the world who you are, taking chances and being the best YOU you can be. So wherever you are, whenever it … [Read more...]

Manners Are Free: Children’s Book, iPhone & iPad App Review & Giveaway

P1060536

Is anyone out there like me where before Kiggster was born, I swore I wouldn't use my phone, TV, or computer as a form of distraction for my daughter to "behave?"  Wel, then she came along and all prior judgments of parents who used technology at restaurant outings and car rides disappeared because somehow I became one of them!  I couldn't get her to sit still at the restaurant and we couldn't get to our 6 hour destination any earlier than 13 hours.   However, I still like to be selective about what apps I expose her to.  Some of you may remember when I previously did a book review of Manners Are Free, well, I was fortunate to be able to also do a review of the Manners Are Free app and just fell in love!   I already liked the book so the app wasn't going to be much far off from that since it was the book in electronic format but I was looking forward to seeing the special features that the app offered.  Since I don't have … [Read more...]

Willow Store: Sprout Change One Size Training Pants Review & Giveaway

Sprout Change

Some of you may think Willow Store sounds familiar and that's because their Organic Super Wipes were previously featured on Kangaroo Mama!  This time, you'll get to see their Sprout Change Training Pants.  I was given the opportunity to review their Sprout Change One-Size Training Pant in Black.  I really liked this training pant because  you could really customize the size to your child with their easy waist elastic adjustment.  Plus, the buttons on the waist elastic are concealed so you don't see it and it's not touching your child's precious skin and leaving red marks/indentations!  You can see below for pictures and instructions on how the adjustment works:   Locate Find the snaps on the wings. To get the best fit, do the adjustment while child is wearing the trainer Open Unsnap the small pocket on one of the wings. Pull out the button and elastic … [Read more...]

P1060712

I love when a company carries a wide variety of choices so if you loved their diapers, you know you can also get their training pants and other products they carry!  I was recently given the opportunity to review the Snap-EZ AIO and Stuffable Training Pants.  I actually had just purchased the discontinued line of Training Pants to build up my stash and so I was really going to be able to see the difference between their old line and newly rolled out Training Pants first hand! Snap-EZ products are made by WAHMs in the US and only use the highest quality materials:  Polartec fleeces are the best in the industry and use one of the few that do the milling in the USA Wooly Nylon Thread which is more stable Lastin Elastic which is harder to sew but gentler on baby Below is a helpful chart from Snap-EZ comparing their diapers and training pants: Product Waterproof Outer Stay Dry Inner Sewn In Soaker Opening for … [Read more...]
