Amish Toy Box Review& #Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway!

train 2

I have always been intrigued by the Amish lifestyle. I love their simplicity and the workmanship is just amazing. In today’s high tech world, it is so nice to see a society that is still enthused by the basics of life. I absolutely love the wooden toys they create because you can see the love and labor that goes into each and every handcrafted piece and the fact that even though it is not a technology based toy, children love them because they learn to use their imaginations! (something many in this time are lacking)I was recently given the chance to review an item from AmishToyBox.com. Of course I was thoroughly impressed! My 2 year old chose the review the 6 car large wooden train set. We live directly beside a set of train tracks and he has always been intrigued by trains. The specs on the site state that … read more

Image3D Customized Reel and Viewer

3d image viewer 2

As a child, I always loved the little “cameras” as I called them. You know the ones that you have a little camera reel and you stick it in and push the button to look at different photos. I had one with a million different reels and would sit there and look at them over and over! I have to admit, I didn’t even know they still existed. There is an awesome company called Image3D that creates custom reels and viewers just like those from our childhood. And I must say they are super cool! My son’s 3rd birthday is on March 17 and I was looking for fun, unique gifts. This fit my list perfectly. With Image3D, I was able to upload my own personal photos to use on the reel! I chose photos from the past year of his life that show moment he will always remember. It … read more

Listerine 21 Day Challenge Update

Disclosure: I received a Target gift card to purchase LISTERINE® Brand products from Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own. If you remember 3 weeks ago I posted about taking part in the Listerine 21 Day Challenge. I headed to Target and picked up Listerine Mouth Wash, Listerine Tooth Paste, Listerine Smart Rinse (kids mouth wash) and Reach Floss. I was all set to embark on a journey to better mine and my family’s oral health. They say a habit takes 21 days to form. I wasn’t the best at brushing twice a day and I definitely sucked at flossing…. so how did it go? Well, it was a little tough. When I worked outside the home I used to remember to brush my … read more

Pancake Pile-Up! Review & Giveaway

pancake pile up

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. I am always looking for fun activities and games to play with my son. He will be 3 in a few days and I think it is important to keep him active, thinking, and provide a fun learning environment that will carry him on through to school. I was recently given the opportunity to review a fun game for him and was rather excited! We received Pancake Pile-Up. This is technically a relay race style game for multiple players ages 4 and up. Of course he is a bit younger than that and doesn’t quite have the fine motor skills needed to play the actual game. But I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to start working on the skills needed ad before long, he will be able to play the actual game with no problem! Pancake Pile-Up comes … read more
