Kidorable Review & Giveaway

 Winter is almost officially here and so is the cold weather. We are a family that loves to be outside, but I can't stand to be cold. So good winter apparel is a must, and this is true for my kiddos too. Kidorable is a company that we have turned to in the past to keep our little one's dry from the rain, and now they are helping us keep our kids nice and cozy during these colder months.

  Kidorable has some adorable knit glovesscarves and hats. Keeping true to Kidorable style these items are so fun & brightly colored. We received all three products in the mermaid design , for our Sweet Pea. We chose a size small which is recommended for kids age 3-5, Sweet Pea is 2 and they fit well with room to grow :)

  I love each of these items. They are made so well & Sweet Pea loves the cute fun design. I also love how practical the gloves are with the string to keep them safe in her jacket. Getting bundled up has never been so much fun. With Kidorable your kiddo will be happy to wear their winter gear, no more complaining. With such a wide variety of products each child can easily show off his or her style.

  You can check out the full knitwear line from Kidorable on their website. One of you will win a Kidorable umbrella of your choice. Please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win. This giveaway will end on Wednesday 12/31, Good Luck.

KidSleep Moon Review & Giveaway

  I don't know about you, but my kids are early birds! Most days they are rolling out of bed right around 6:30. Personally this is the time I like to wake as well, but I prefer waking about an hour before my kiddos so I can have some "quiet time" before our day really begins.

   There is a portion of the year where I can say "you can't get out of bed until the sun is up" , but another part of the year that means my kids are up at 6:00 or earlier! Whew...that does not make for a fun day.

  When I heard about the KidSleep Moon , I knew we had to have one...maybe more.. The KidSleep Moon can be used with newborns as a nightlight , it even plays lullabies. As your kids get older the KidSleep Moon acts as a visual aide for when they can hop out of bed in the morning. 

   The biggest problem when our item arrived was deciding which bedroom it should go in. All three kiddos felt it just needed to go in their room. But, I decided the boys probably needed it more since most nights Sweet Pea still finds her way to our room. 

  The KidSleep Moon is great, its really easy to set up and easy for kids to read. In the morning when the sun begins to rise, the child knows it is almost time to get up. In the evening when they see the sun setting your child will know to begin settling down for bed. You as the parent get to choose a time for the sun on the clock to rise, and that is your kiddos cue that it's ok to get out of bed. When its time to wake you can set an alarm or keep it silent so your child has the option to keep sleeping.

   The KidSleep Moon has been a hit in our home. My kids, especially my 3 year old love the fun characters on the display & it has over the past few weeks definitely helped them get a little more rest. 

      You can purchase the KidSleep Moon on Amazon for $49.90. One of you will win one of your own. Please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win, Good Luck.

Skylanders Trap Team Review

   Last year at Christmas time our oldest, Buddy, who was then 5 almost 6 was introduced to the world of Skylanders by my parents who bought him the Swap Force game. This proved to be the best and most favorited present of the year. For some reason I am finding this age so hard to buy for, so when Buddy's birthday came and others were asking what they could buy him I simply named Skylanders figurines that he didn't own yet & it was such a hit! Hubs and I love that this a gift you can continuously build upon.

    Activision has done it again; this year as Christmas approaches there was one gift that both boys (ages 6 & 3) were asking for. The new Skylanders Trap Team! I received a sneak peek of this game back in July and I knew right away my boys would love it. So I was thrilled when we were able to receive it to try out in our home...and the boys didn't complain about an early Christmas present. ;-)

   In Skylanders Trap Team, Kaos has blown up the walls of the feared Cloudcracker Prison freeing the most notorious villains in Skylands. Its up to you and the Skylanders to find and capture them!

   Right away, your Skylander fan will notice how different the Trap Team portal is from any previous one. The portal has an extra piece for your "traps" which are little crystals that hold the defeated villains , which allows Skylanders to play as the villains. This adds such an extra element of fun to the game.

   You will need different traps so you can capture life elements as well as water elements, and so on. My kids get really bummed when they defeat a villain whom they can't trap right away, but the great thing is..once he is defeated you do not have to defeat him again to capture him later. So when you get the traps you need you can go through and capture the saved defeated villains.

    The Skylanders Trap Team comes with everything you need to get started, including 2 traps and 2 Skylanders Figures. You are also able to use any previously owned figures. You can purchase the new Skylanders game at many different locations.

Bluebee Pals Review

    My kids love technology like most kids of this generation. Whether they are stealing our phones to play a game or using the iPad to watch a show or call their grandparents, they understand how the devices work almost better than Hubs & I.

   Now that Christmas is quickly approaching & you're looking for unique gift ideas, why not get your kids something that will further enhance something they already enjoy? Bluebee Pals are a new interactive Bluetooth Enabled Plush Companion & Learning Tool from Kayle Concepts.

   Bluebee Pals is a huggable plush toy that sings, reads and answers phone calls. The animals mouth will move while singing and reading to your child's favorite storybooks or learning apps. Your kids will love it when the grandparents call & you use your Bluebee Pal as a speaker phone.

  We received Bluebee Pal Lily the Lamb, who can be purchased directly on the Bluebee Pal website for $64.99 with her other friends. Winston the Puppy can be found at Toys R Us.  Bluebee Pals not only offer a unique way for your kiddos to engage in their favorite activities, but they are super soft and cuddly.

  I can't wait to surprise our kids with Lily on Christmas morning, I spent some time playing with her & I think they will just love her!
