Hot Wheels® Customs Car Review

As the mother of two boys, ages 5 and 8, I can tell you that toy cars and trucks rank up there as favorite toys in my home.  There is something classic about little boys and their toy cars and my two sons are no different.  They both have had many toy cars in the past but none that they were able to create and customize on their own.  That is why both of them were thrilled to have the opportunity to customize their own Hot Wheels® Customs Car.     Anyone can now design and decorate their own Hot Wheels® Customs Car online.  All it takes is five easy steps to create a unique customized car complete with a photo of your favorite little Hot Wheels® fan!  All we had to do to create our customized car was log on to the  Hot Wheels® website and choose our favorite ride from the four cool vehicle styles: Hiway Hauler, Dairy Delivery, Surfin' School Bus or School Busted.  We then uploaded a photo, which in our case was a photo of my five year old son, and select a personalized message to put … [Read more...]

SoapTime® Review and Giveaway

    Anytime that I can recommend a great product to you guys and teach my sons a lesson about proper personal hygiene, I jump at the opportunity.  That is why I was so excited to be given the chance to review the  SoapTime® System.  It opened the door for me to discuss and model proper handwashing techniques with my boys using a system that is entirely geared towards children.     SoapTime® is a patented system that makes handwashing FUN for kids!  Children are encouraged to wash their hands and to learn the appropriate amount of time that they should be doing so in order to properly clean their hands which is 20 seconds.  It's geared towards children of all ages but is especially useful between the ages of 2 1/2 and 7 when children are first learning to wash their hands independently and need a little loving encouragement to motivate them to wash regularly.     The system includes 3 uniquely Themed Bottles: ABC, Earth, and Elephant, each recognized by the SmartBase®.

Lysol No Touch Hand System and Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes Review and Giveaway

    You can never have too much soap around when you have children.  Unfortunately, most soaps cannot guarantee that using them will kill all of the bacteria and germs that you are exposed to on a daily basis.  We have always loved Lysol® products in our home but, we didn't realize how important using their products was to the health of my family until my sons and I contracted the H1N1 Virus two years ago.  For those of you who don't know this virus by its scientific name, you will probably recognize it as the Swine Flu.  Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, we all got violently sick with this flu because we did not take the necessary precautions to protect our home from harmful germs.     Since recovering from this virus, I have paid a lot more attention to the products that we use to wash our hands and to clean areas of the house that can be potential breeding grounds for bacteria and disease such as sinks and the toilet.  Obviously, this does not guarantee that we will be protected from all … [Read more...]
