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

Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty

phantom foxfire

I have always loved putty. Something about it can even make adults want to play! I recently had the chance to review Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty and of course we jumped on it. Something kids and adults can share in this house is always game for me. Thinking putty is cool because you can mold it, shape it, draw on it, use it as a form of stress release or just smash it around when you are bored. Crazy Aaron has taken putty to a new level though and we were excited to experience it. We received two tins of Thinking Putty to review. The first was a Glow In The Dark Putty, Amber color. (well, of course we picked Amber!) The putty comes in a cute storage tin. (please note, it did NOT include the UV light keychain, some how the keychain ended up in the wrong photo although … read more
