End of Summer Blast with MotorWorks

cars built

Well, Summer is almost over. School starts back next week and although I am more just as excited as the kids that school is starting back, I wanted to make sure we had one last bit of summer fun. We had an amazing opportunity to set up a Motorworks party for the kids ad their close friends and of course we knew this would be the way to end the summer with a blast! If you haven’t heard of Motorworks, you’re missing out. They have an amazing line of wooden vehicles that your little ones can customize to their liking with different accessories and sticker options. They also have fun playsets and more (hey, Christmas is coming… seriously, check them out!) The boys and I set out to create a party full of fun to see how creative we could get for a random racing party! We were provided with … read more

Aeromax Toys Kid Powered Sky Blaster + Giveaway

sky blasters

I always love toys that can get the kids outdoors. In today’s technology takeover this can be a challenge! A simple game of tossing the ball used to be pure fun to my friends and I but my kids aren’t so enthused and lose interest quickly. This calls for stepping outside the box. That’s why I love Aeromax Toys. They always have something to spark a child’s imagination and create fun. One of the latest toys we had the chance to review is their Kid Powered Sky Blasters. No batteries needed, just aim, shoot, and watch it soar. Of course, afterwards the kids have to run and grab it to shoot again so they get that active play in that parents desire! These sky blasters come in a variety of colors. I love the bright color choices as it makes them much easier to spot from a distance once they … read more


Wikki Stix One of a Kind Piggy Bank

piggy bank

I grew up in a very low income family. We were taught to be as thrifty as possible to ensure our immediate needs were met. We knew the value of a dollar and really considered ourselves lucky when we had a dollar to save. My husband however doesn’t have quite the money saving experience I do. His oldest has followed in his footsteps as a result and the minute he has a dollar, he is itching to spend it. I’m slowly working to change that but its hard to change! So with my toddler, I know it needs to be started now. He needs to know how to save money especially in today’s economy. We were recently given the chance to partner with Wikki Stix to review one of their awesome, one of a kind creatable piggy banks and I knew this would be the perfect chance to start teaching! … read more
