I'm not typically one to "ooh" and "ahh" over skincare products. But these products from Bella il Fiore definitely gained some of my attention when they came. In fact, a friend was over when they arrived, and I made her smell them several times (to the point of possible annoyance). But I really couldn't get over how wonderfully amazing the … [Read more...]

Here's why my boys like their new Mini Plaja Pets: "They're magnetic and they have magnets in them." They've taken their set of magnetic switcharoo plush animals and made games of them. Each animal (we have 6) are sectioned in 3 pieces: body, head and tail. And for a lot of kids, the fun is in switching head and tails to make a new creature, like … [Read more...]

When I picked up a sample of these utterly adorable Bottle Pets at the ABC Kids Show a couple of weeks ago, I thought that they would be something that might appeal to my six month old. I had no idea that my three other kids, aged 4,8, and 12 would be so gaga over them. It took them all of ten seconds to figure out that their Sigg bottles fit … [Read more...]

There's a new fad taking over our neighborhood as the kids head back to school . Shains bracelets. Made from recycled/recyclable material, these unisex bracelets come with jibbitz-like letter/symbol "element" kits that let you personalize them and create whatever message you wish to share with the world.
