"Best Dad Ever" Mug Review



About "Best Dad Ever" Mug
Our "Best Dad Ever" coffee mugs are made from high quality glass. They're microwave and dishwasher safe and the print is guaranteed to stay on. These glass mugs make excellent gift ideas for Dad on any occasion including a birthday, anniversary, Father's Day, Valentine's Day, Christmas and more.

My Experience
My boys gave this to my husband for Father's Day. It was a nice way to show him how much they love him. Like a lot of Dad's it is hard to know what gifts to buy him. The last thing he needs is more clutter, so I try to find things that are consumable or useful. This glass mug will get used for many years. It was packaged well in a cardboard box. It is also a good size. There is plenty of room for cream and sugar, just the way he likes it. Overall, this mug is great for any occasion when you want to tell your Dad that he is the best!

SummerBliz Sun Hat Review



About SummerBliz Sun Hats
This sun hat is lightweight and made up of nylon/polyester blended fabric. It has a drawstring that allows you to adjust the size of the hat's crown to your head. The size of the hat is in medium size and it is for both men and women. It also has a chin strap that will secure the sun hat so you don’t have to worry that the hat will be taken away from your head by the wind. 

My Experience
I thought this hat would be great for my husband to use while he did chores outside, like weeding and mowing. However, it was way too small for him. I tried it on and it is almost too small for me. It fits, but I feel some pressure on my forehead. I think if I wore it I would end up with a headache. Fortunately I was able to give it to my oldest son, he is nine. It is slightly big on him but he will grow into it. It also has the chin strap to help keep it in place. I like that it has a wide brim to keep the sun off his face, neck and ears. Also the top of the hat has some mesh so it is more breathable. Overall, I'm disappointed this didn't work for my husband, but my son is happy with it.

Being a Captain is Hard Work Review



About Being a Captain is Hard Work
Captain No Beard is determined to travel to Dew Rite Volcano. He won't listen when Mongo predicts a storm or Linus indicates they are headed in the wrong direction. He insists Polly cook in the galley even though the seas are getting rough. What's a crew to do with a stubborn, know-it-all captain? Will they convince the captain he is barreling headlong into danger, or will Captain No Beard jeopardize both his safety and the crew’s with his single-minded determination to go where he wants?

Our Experience
I read this book as a bedtime story to my boys ages seven and four. They both really enjoyed it. The illustrations are colorful and fun. It had a fair amount of suspense. My kids were wondering what would happen next. I like that it focuses on teaching a lesson. Leaning that we are not always right and to listen to others are important skills. My seven year old is at a first grade reading level, but this book is more advanced. It makes a great read-aloud for parents and teaches. I also really like that there is a page at the end of the book that teaches about the different types of clouds. This takes the learning one step further by getting us outside and using our skills of observation and identification. One drawback for me was that it had a lot of characters. I got a little confused sometimes as to who was who. This might be less of an issue if we had read the other book in the series first. Overall, this book teaches a great lesson and we look forward to reading more stories in the Captain No Beard series.

Electronic Foot File Review



About the Treat My Feet Foot File
The Treat My Feet Electronic Callus Shaver & Foot File is the perfect pedi tool for women and men who want a quick pedicure without a costly, time-consuming spa trip. Simply flip the switch and begin buffing! In seconds your feet will feel like they had an expensive pedicure at home! 



My Experience
My feet always feel more calloused in the summer when I'm not wearing socks. I love to go to the salon and get a pedicure, but they are so expensive! This file helps my feet feel soft and smooth without the cost. It is easy to use. I like that it is cordless, so I can comfortably reach my heals without getting wrapped up in a cord. It uses two AA batteries which are not included. It comes with a corse file already installed, and one replacement file. This is great because it is recommended not to share files. This way my husband can use one too. The protective cover makes it convenient if I wanted to travel with it, ensuing that the file doesn't rub on other items. It is also very simple to clean with the included brush and a little water. Overall, it only takes a few minutes to pamper my feet and I'll be confident they look good all summer long.

About Match It! Trilingual First Words

This is a fun way to learn about first words in new languages!  Contains 30 two-piece puzzles cards. Ages 3 + Years.


Our Experience
At four years old, Mr. C is just starting to learn to read. These puzzles are fun and educational at the same time. We focus on the English words, because honestly, I don't know how to pronounce some of them in Spanish and French. But it is nice to have them as an option. The words and pictures are bright and engaging. They are a good size for small hands. I like that they have self-correcting cut outs, so he can solve them by himself. I found the extra thick cardboard to be sturdy, and I think they will hold up well to repeated play. Even Mr. R, who is seven year old, will play with them, reinforcing his word recognition. Overall, I like seeing my boys learn and have fun, and these puzzles do both.

AutoZiv Microfibre Duster Review



About AutoZiv Microfibre Dusters
Our duster has a large microfiber head for quick cleaning and it easily sucks up all the dust. Our Multipurpose duster has a large 360 degree microfiber head for quick and meticulous cleaning. With the long extendable car duster handle you can reach any place. Thick crowded and soft high quality microfiber that doesn't leave behind lint and doesn't transfer the dust or dirt from spot to spot. Dusting allows you to go longer in between car washes!



My Experience
I like that this come as a set of two. The large one is great for big areas, like the dashboard and seats. The handle also telescopes making it extendable for reaching those hard to clean areas. The small one is good for more detailed areas, like the stereo or center console. I also like the small one because my kids want to help and this is the one I give them. They do a great job of grabbing the dust and making quick work of getting my car interior to look nice. Be careful dusting over car locks. I had my locks up and it accidentally snagged the duster and pulled some of the microfiber yarn loose. It is still useable, it just doesn't look as nice. Overall, these are easy to use and do their job well.

Rainbows & Storms Game Review



This is the make your own board game kit from Griddly Games. Simply design, stick & play. With over 200 embellishments you can create your own chutes and ladders style game but where the rainbows bring you up and the storms take you down. The kit comes with rewritable chance cards and an erasable marker, so that every game is a new experience. This game can be used in educational settings as well. The common core standards can be incorporated into game play.


Our Experience
Summer vacation have officially started and with so many hours to fill! This creative game is being enjoyed by all three of my boys. My youngest, who is four, was the most excited to design the game. He needed a little help pealing the stickers off the sheets. Some stickers didn't quite make it on the square, so fortunately they are moveable even after they have been placed. There are lots of stickers, and I'm sure we will add even more as we play. We might even make a card that says 'add a sticker to the board'. The cards are also erasable so we can change them as often as we like. Some of our cards read 'move forward 2+1= spaces' (a little math practice) and 'do 5 jumping jacks' (burn off some of that energy!), the possibilities are endless. Two things that could be improved in my opinion are having a larger game board. The board felt small with all four of us playing. The other thing is that some of the sticker sheets were folded. The stickers that were on the crease don't lay flat so they are more likely to be pulled off or stick to the game pieces. Overall, this is a fun activity that can be made fresh by changing a few sticker and cards.

My Experience
Although I try to get enough sleep at night, with a baby by my side I still wake up tired. I love that this scent is very refreshing. It really helps wake me up and start my day. The rosemary oil smells a little like eucalyptus to me. The peppermint is invigoration too. My hair is a little longer than shoulder length so I use about a quarter size dab. It lathers enough for me to feel it is working. Even though it isn't quite as thick as shampoos with sulphates, but it is worth it to have no harsh chemicals in the product. It also rinses completely without too much effort. I typically wash it every other day so my scalp doesn't get dry and itchy, and I think the peppermint oil helps with this too. I still use a separate conditioner as well. Overall, I'm glad I was able to add this shampoo to my beauty routine.

Prolific Health Yoga Pants Review



About Prolific Health Yoga Pants
There are many colors to choose from. They come in legging and capri length. Made of nylon, polyester and spandex. 

My Experience
I don't actually do yoga, but I do like a comfortable pair of pants. The first thing that caught my eye was the color of these pants. The ombré pattern is very cool. The fabric is soft and thick. I don't worry about them being see through. They also wash well and don't show signs of pilling. One of my favorite features is the waistband. It is made to be folded over, but I like to wear it unfolded. I think it gives me a very flattering silhouette. These do have a few drawbacks in my opinion. First they are shorter than I would like. I'm 5'8" and unlike the listing photo, these are a few inches above my ankles. Also the crotch is a little saggy, even though they fit through my hips and thighs. Lastly there were a couple snags/imperfections on the left leg. I will likely wear these at home to do chores or yard work, but not out and about. Overall, these are mostly comfortable but not a perfect fit for my body type.

My Experience
My nine year old son absolutely loves puzzles. He has moved on from solving to regular cube puzzles to the more complex shapes. This puzzle is larger than a 3x3x3. The stickers are bright and none of them are lifting from the cube. It turns smooth and has a click sound when it snaps into place. It does come with instructions, but he finds it easier to learn by watching videos online. He likes this cube and often spends time solving it in the car. Overall, this is a fun toy for both beginners and experienced puzzlers.

Lil' Oopsies Baby Bibs Review



About Lil' Oopsies Baby Bibs
This set of 4 animal baby bibs are cute, yet functional and effective. They are made of three soft layers, but NO annoying crinkling sound. They are soft against baby's skin, comfortably soak up baby's drool, spit-up, and protects baby's clothes from food stains. They are great for reflux babies and teething babies too. Keeps them dry and cute at the same time.



My Experience
This set of four animal bibs has to be one of the cutest ones I've seen. To me these are more like an accessory than a bib. I am using these with my daughter that is nine months old. The fabric feels like terry cloth and is very soft. The stitching and embroidery are also well done. The bib covers a good amount of her shirt, keeping it dry and clean. These have a velcro closer. The straps are a little too long for her so I need to tuck it under her chin to catch her drool. It would be nice if these were able to be adjusted to different sizes. Overall, these bibs make me smile and I like that she will be able to wear them as she gets older.

Best for any room in your house - bedroom, guest room, kids room, RV, vacation home. Fade, stain, shrink and wrinkle resistant. Machine wash in cold. Dries quick on tumble dry low.

My Experience
These sheets are very soft. They are a little thinner than I was expecting. The pockets are nice and deep. I like how easy they are to put on. The elastic stretches so I'm fighting with fitting them over the corners. I also like that this set comes with two matching pillow cases. The entire king size set fits into my washer and dryer. They have wrinkles when they come out of the dryer, but that doesn't bother me because I just cover them up with my duvet. Overall, these are soft and light weight, a perfect set for summer.

Little Sprouts Pacifier Clip Review



About Little Sprouts Pacifier Clip
Carefully crafted universal beaded pacifier clip safely attaches to your baby's or toddler's clothing. Our bright chew beads supports brain development and provides superior visual stimulation. Best of all, the beads massage teething gums and soothes teething symptoms while promoting healthy tooth development. Little Sprouts teether clip is suitable for all types of pacifiers including Soothies and MAM. Easily attach it to teething rings, baby blankets, drool bibs, stroller and car seat straps. Our special clips are designed to open and close easily but hard to pull off. 100% BPA, PVC, phthalate and lead free! Silicone beads are food grade and have no taste or smell.



My Experience
This is a very pretty pacifier clip. I've been using it with my nine month old daughter. She hasn't gotten any of her teeth yet so she likes to chew on the flower and beads. I like the unique design of the clip. Instead of pulling up on the front of the clip to open it, push down on the other end to open and close it. The loop and snap are very strong and it is easy to attach to her toys. We have never had a toy come off the loop. My daughter can pull the clip off her cloths if I don't get it far enough over a seam, and it slides off her car seat straps because they are so smooth. I've found that the silicone can attract hair and lint, but it is easy to clean. Overall, my daughter enjoys this clip more than others because she can chew on it and I hope she still likes it once she gets teeth.
