My Experience
The size is just right for coloring while away from home. I like that it comes with a bag to carry and protect it. With it being spiral bound the pages easily lay flat while working on them. The one drawback is that some of the patterns are almost too complex to be able to color each space individually. Overall, the images are beautiful and the quality is excellent.

Essential Oil Box Review

About the Essential Oil Box
This essential oil carrying case (wooden box for essential oils, vial holder case) is the perfect solution to safe storage, presentation and transportation of your essential oil collection. This essential oil case is compatible with doTERRA, Young Living and Plant Therapy oils. This oil case holder is made of high quality pine wood. This wooden case comes unstained or painted in the hopes that it will be customized by the owner to the owners taste. There are no big obnoxious brands stamped painted or etched into our box. Included with your oil cases for essential oils is an eBook to get your started with essential oils. 

My Experience
After I started using essential oils about nine months ago, I discovered I needed a good way to organize them. This box holds many bottles and rollers. It will hold a variety of 5ml, 10ml, and 15ml bottles as well as 10ml rollers. I have room to add even more. The hinges and dividers are sturdy. I like that I can move it to different rooms easily because the lid locks in place. The included stickers, pipettes and ebook are additional benefits. The only drawback is that it takes up quite a bit of room when it is fully opened. Overall, this is an attractive box with ample storage.

Shape Logic Review

About Shape Logic
Shape Logic is a fun game that helps develop spatial, abstract and quantitative reasoning skills. To solve the puzzle challenges, stack green pieces on top of blue pieces, or vice versa, to create identical shapes. Through hands-on play, players build key skills, strategies and mathematical understandings, such as part-to-whole relationships. Shape Logic, as part of ThinkFun special collection of STEM games, encourages children to develop reasoning skills through fun, multi-level challenges. To be a successful STEM learner, students need to develop a mental mindset for growth.

Our Experience
My oldest son loves mental puzzles like this! He breezed through the beginner puzzles. He found the intermediate puzzles a little more challenging. He also found that some of the puzzles have more than one correct answer. It is a single player game, but if your kids can cooperate they can take turns. My younger boys were able to play together. The pieces are made of hard plastic and quite sturdy. I also like that it has a bag to store the pieces. The puzzle cards are on a ring so they all stay organized. Overall, this is a great game to develop reasoning skills needed for math and science.

Silicone Pocket Bib Review

About the Silicone Pocket Bib from ASC Baby
No more messy meals because the deep wide pocket catches all food chunks, crumbs and liquid spillages during mealtime. The pocket stays open all the time and no food is spilled. No more ruined clothes and non-stop use of washing machine. They are easy to clean and dry. Just rinse the bib made from 100% food grade stain and odor resisting silicone or drop it in the dishwasher for a quick cleaning. Get rid of old stained and smelly fabric bibs and save money! The bib is as soft and flexible as a shirt, this bib will conform to your child's neck and create a superior seal. On the move just roll the bib up, toss it in the travel bag and use it to store baby cutlery in it. Enjoy peace of mind with our BPA Free, Phtalate free, lead free bibs.

Our Experience
Miss N is 14 months old and having a lot of fun feeding herself, which means she gets super messy sometimes. These are better than other silicone bibs I've tried before. Because the upper portion is fabric these lay flat and don't make a huge gap at her neck. The velcro is strong enough that she can't pull it off. I also really like that they can be rolled up and secured with a button closure. This is especially helpful in keeping the rest of my bag clean after meals out of the house. They are easy to clean too. Usually I'll just wipe it down if she didn't make it too dirty, otherwise I toss it into the dishwasher and it comes out looking new. It would be nice if they also made these in girly colors, but I'm sure Miss N doesn't really care. Overall, these bibs keep my little self-feeder clean.

Funcake Cake Decorating Kit Review

About Funcake Cake Decorating Kit
This kit come with 2 high-quality silicone pastry bags. The bags are 12-inch in length and easy to clean and grip. Each bag also includes a hook so you can easily hang it up for drying. It also includes a variety of 24 different tips made from a strong stainless steel that don't get bent or misshapen. Each kit comes with 2 reusable plastic couplers that makes life so much easier when it's time for changing tips.

Our Experience
I have never used a pasty bag with tips to decorate before. I was pleasantly suprised by how easy it was. I watched a couple video tutorials and read the PDF before I started. I experimented with several of the tips. Some gave a better result then others. With practice I think I could get a majority of them to be presentable. Of course I can eat my mistakes which makes it all better. It was also easy to change the tips because the plastic couplers screw on and off. Having two bags also allows for using two different frostings without needing to clean the bag in between. I like that the PDF gives examples of the design that each tip will produce. It would be nice if the tips were labeled so I could identify which tip I was using. The silicone bags and tips were easy to clean and the hook is very handy for hanging to bag up to dry. Overall, I'll be using these for all our future birthday cupcakes!

Neoprene Robot Lunch Bag Review

About the Neoprene Robot Lunch Bag
TimoFimo's 4mm thick neoprene insulated lunch bag is designed to keep hot lunches and drinks hot and cold ones cold for hours - enough for your little one to eat or drink them while still fresh! Our tote bags are thoughtfully designed to be durable and stain, tear, fade and water resistant. They are the perfect size - not too large, not too small - and come with detachable shoulder straps and a heavy duty zipper. They can also be used as picnic, sundry or supermarket shopping bags, especially for frozen foods and perishables. Our bags are easily cleaned, machine washable and easy to dry. We only use materials of the highest quality and nothing else; vinyl-free, PVC-free, lead-free neoprene. That's why they're great for all kinds of snacks, fruit and beverages. Rest assured - your family's food will remain safe from toxic elements and harmful materials.

Our Experience
Mr. O and Mr. R both had lunch bags because they would occasionally need them for school. Mr. C has never needed one, but he was feeling left out. This bag is perfect for him. His favorite color is yellow so his eyes immediately lit up. I think the robot is very cute. The zipper closure is great at keeping the contents contained. I also like that it has a shoulder strap so it is easy for him to carry. It did smell a little funny when I took it out of the bag. But this dissipated after a few days. Overall, this is a cute bag that my son really enjoys carrying for his snacks and small toys.
