The Critter Conga

The Critter Conga by Parents arrived on our doorstep last week and all I can say is it's made my daughter discover music! We were thrilled to receive a musical toy and I really love Parents toys. I think they are different from other types of toys. They just remind me of an old fashion type of toys. The Critter Conga is geared toward toddlers and my four year old loved the drum that came with it. Each musical instrument is animal themed and so adorable. It comes with two giraffe maracas, a twister hand drum, one capuchin monkey rainstick, one crocodile cabasa & clicker, one elephant head whistle, one gazelle whistle, one toucan whistle and two snake drumsticks. You can store them in the large leopard conga with 10-bell tambourine lid. This musical toy can be purchased at Costco or other retailers.
An awesome idea for Christmas!



When given the opportunity to review , I was thrilled to be able to voice my opinion. This is online shopping portal that directs you to different shopping places and guess what? You get to earn money for buying stuff! I've seen one of these before and these type of sites are awesome!

You start by registering (for free) to and then you just go shopping! You can earn up to 30% at over 800 popular stores like, Avon, Zappos, Walmart and even Dell. Each store has their own payback % and they list the most popular and probably the highest paying store in a special catagory to make it easy for you.

They also have a referral program that earns you $5 for every person you send over. Thats a whole lot of reasons to shop through them. Feeling like giving? also has an option to give part or all to the charity of your choice. How cool is that?

Now, what are you waiting for? Do that last minute shopping for Christmas and get some money back for it!


Delgo Movie

This was an interesting type of review. I was asked to watch a trailer of the upcoming movie Delgo. Animated fast-paced action and adventure in a mystical land with a hero, a princess and the message they try to get across- which all kids movies try to do- is about acceptance between different cultures. Family friendly of course, this film is great!

The story takes place in land of Jhamora, which is divided between two cultures- the Nohrin and the Lockni. When Delgo (Lockni teenager) becomes forbidden friends with the Nohrin Princess Kyla, things become bad in the land of Jhamora. The exiled empress takes advantage of the hostiles between the two enemies and seeks revenge to take her place back in power once again. When Delgo and his best friend Filo are false imprisoned they must put aside their differences and join forces with a sworn enemy Bogardus, and travel to Perran to help rescue Princess Kyla.

Delgo is scheduled to be released in theaters December 12th.

There even are well known voice cast:
Freddie Prinze Jr- Delgo
Jennifer Love Hewitt- Princess Kayla
Anne Bancroft- exiled Empress Sedessa
Chris Kattan- Filo
Val Kilmer- Bogardus
Lou Gosset Jr- Nohrin King
Micheal Clark Duncan- Lockni Stonesage Council
Kylly Ripa- Kurin
Burt Reynolds- Delgo's Father
Sally Kellerman- Narrator

Bella Sara Cards

What a neat idea to have trading cards be the key to collecting beautiful horses on an online horse stable!
A fun and magical place full of beauty and a safe place to play online. There are games, puzzles, and activities for you to enjoy with your favorite horses.
How it works:
You Collect your Bella Sara Cards, activate them online and play the interactive games, puzzles, and activities. Each card has it's own code that you use to activate online playing.
You can play with your horses, put them in their stables, feed them, brush them and pretty much what you would do with a real horse.
This can even be done by a three year old and my daughter loves it! She likes to carry her cards around in her purse to show her friends. The cards are very pretty and you can get lost in how magical they look.
A great Christmas present idea for anyone looking for something new.
So get your behind over there and buy some!


Doodle with the Aquadoodle

We had purchased the Aquadoodle awhile back and lost the pen, so when I received another one from Team Mom, I was so happy.

The best feature is definately, NO MESS!

The Aquadoodle is a great way to let my kids do artwork without having to find paper and the mess of paints drives me crazy!

The Aquapen is the only thing that will work on the aquapad and you just need to add water-yeah!!

When you're finished, you simply roll up the mat & store it away-love it!!!

A blizzard in your bath!

The Bath Blizzard
What a very cool name! The name alone, makes me want to try this out for myself.
If your child is like most children, then bubbles are the best thing ever. They will have a blast in the bath tub when they use this.
It's so easy to use, you just put the bath blizzard on the wall with suction cups, pour in bubble solution and turn it on. It really does make a blizzard of bubbles for your kids to play with in the bath.
It takes 4 C batteries, but it's so much fun you won't care!

Flipper Toothbrush holder

We received a puppy flipper toothbrush holder today and I have to say, these little critter are the cutest things I've ever seen. Flipper products are perfect for keeping germs away. They have a suction cup on the back that sticks to any flat surface. You just open and close with a pull of your toothbrush.

There are several different styles to choose from the My Puppy series to the Animal World series.

Flippers are for the whole family and we also received a razor holder which will come in handy since I'm always getting yelled at to put mine up!

The Tuffet is a mom-invented product that was made to create a safe place for baby to sit. I used to use pillows to keep baby up but no need to when you use the Tuffet! Its soft and big enough to catch baby no matter where they fall!

The Tuffet is available in 4 different fabrics (corduroy, micro suede, twill, and denim) and a variety of patterns.

The Tuffet is designed with a slip cover that is easy to remove and to toss in your washer. Kids can use this too as a soft pillow to use while watching tv or reading. This also has two pockets on it that are great for storing items.

Snug as a bug in a rug


After putting up with barrettes that slip out of Emily's hair, it was a nice change to have one that stays put.

Bugalug barrettes not only do the job but are safe (non-toxic glue) and these barrettes are great for any hair type, even moms! Bugalug also have no slip headbands too that are one of a kind.

My daughter just loves it and we could hardly get it off her head!

I'm a big hat fan and you are very limited at regular stores as far as finding any hats for little ones that aren't Dora, Cinderella or freakin' Mickey! So, when I found Little Fit, I was ecstatic over the cute designs.

I love the mini trucker hat look and their hats allow them to fit them even longer then regular hats.We will be matching her pink hat with most of her wardrobe and she already has some more outfits picked out to wear with it.They have awesome boy and girl designs and when we have our little addition to the family, I will definitely be getting him the matching AB CD boy's hat- wait , maybe the skull and cross bones.

Hell, I love them all!

You can tell they were made to last and thats something I really need in my daughter's shoes because she is really rough with them. These are made with soft sheepskin leather and the flexible rubber sole is perfect for playing!I love this design- it's all white with stars on them.

Sesame Street building sets from KNEX!

I was pleasantly surprised when I received my Ernie building set from K'nex. These are SO cool!My daughter (age 3) grabbed it from my hands and quickly took all the parts out. We worked together first, to show her how it worked and after we put it together once, she took it apart and put it together again over and over. She even had fun changing out the pieces and making a silly Ernie.This puzzle like toy is a great tool for hand and eye development and teaching where parts go.I even like how it's just the right size for convenience and could definitely be taken along for travel!

We received three shirts from Rage Baby, a way for your alter ego to shine through your children's shirts. Shown is Emily's Future Woman President and I will be posting our infant onesie and youth shirt on my blog for you to see them too!While at the store, Emily's shirt was a definite conversation starter. Also, I need to mention that these are one of a kind and when you buy one, you support fair trade and ecological responsibility.
