I'm such a Mom of boys. I definitely would not have appreciated this toy for all it's epic grossness before I had kids. What do you think? It's the Fart Piano, $19.99 on ToysRUs.com.   What do you guys think?  Gross, entertaining or both? … [Read more...]

There's no one more popular in our house than Doc McStuffins! Now with our new Doc McStuffins Magic Talkin' Doc and Friends toy ($49.99) by Just Play; her pals Lambie and Stuffy are must-haves where ever we go.

While I've tested out a lot of monthly subscription boxes and love the concept, I think this one from AppleseedLane.com may be one of my favorites for the kids.  We received a sample box a couple of weeks ago from this education/science themed monthly subscription box company and my kids just loved the experiments. Since it was October, we got a … [Read more...]

Last week we had our school's "Trunk or Treat," which is a fun event where you decorate the trunk of your car and let kids Trick or Treat in a parking lot to all of the trunks.  We had a big email about all of the allergies at school so I was happy to give out a non-food item as an option that I thought the kids would like.  They LOVED these!  I … [Read more...]

It doesn't look like much, right?  Looking at the picture, would you know what this product was for just by guessing?  I definitely had no clue! This is the Sarah Potempa WRAP UP, $12.00.  Using this product, you can put your hair into the perfect bun.  Really.  I was skeptical too.  I have fine hair that never holds anything so I was amazed at … [Read more...]

You can visit Kmart.com to … [Read more...]

Before this year, the last pair of Lee Jeans I owned was probably in the late 1980s. Like many brands, Lee Jeans brings back a lot of memories for some of us (many of them involving bad hair, am I right?). I had Lee Jeans tucked away in my memory as an 80s fashion brand but this year I learned, that's definitely not the case! Lee Jeans is still … [Read more...]

My first impression of the Stokke® Scoot stroller was while it was still in the box on my doorstep. I have a bit of an obsession with baby products, specifically strollers (this is my 6th stroller!) so I am no stranger to dirty mangled boxes being delivered to my house. With the Stokke® Scoot, this was not the case. The packaging was intact. The … [Read more...]

This is the game you want to dig out for a group family play after Thanksgiving dinner. It's so much fun. Called Kilter, it's a bit like Jenga with a twist and made by a company called Simply Fun. This game is all about balancing of pieces. Each team starts the game with a select number of blocks. You take turns placing them on the game board (the … [Read more...]
