Healthy Shopper - Zevia Review

We got to try out some Zevia soft drinks chosen by the Healthy Shopper! As part of the “Unjunk your Junk Food” movement they've found this 0 calorie option for those who drink soft drinks. Zevia is the first naturally sweetened, 0 calorie soda available on the market.

Zevia is clear and doesn't contain aspartame or any other artificially processed sweeteners. It is sweetened with Stevia a South American plant which is uber sweet! It's natural, and definitely a better choice if you're in the mood for a soda!

Thanks to Zevia and The Healthy Shopper.... the Cola and Root-beer were our faves!

Oyaco - Ubbi Product Review

We received the Ubbi 3-in-1 Potty and Tweat Snack Container for review from Oyaco. The Ubbi Tweat is a snack container that is easy for little hands to use and prevents messes...which really, every parent loves! It has 2 handles, doesn't tip over, has a super strong lid and comes in some really cute colors. I liked that the spill guard didn't scratch T's hands when he went in for a treat (or in his case potty and that the rubber seal helped to keep everything from getting stale.

T has been potty training for a while now.... we used a combination of the Potty Tots program, with a few of my tricks and bribery (face is what it is...). The 3-in-1 Potty was great not only for travelling but for home use too. The potty is great for those ball games where there isn't a bathroom available (and Mr Sensitive is too shy to go behind a tree).... the seat comes off and can go on any toilet seat and the step stool is multi-purpose. I liked that the inner bowl (for when we are travelling) is easy to remove and clean....a few clicks and he was back in business running and playing with all his friends. The removable seat (and seat hook) was great for handing over to the grandparents to leave/use at their place and the stool was the perfect height for him to be able to get on and off the potty himself. I also like the non-slip top and bottom of the stool so he didn't have any tumbles off of it. Best part... the stool matched our powder room so it didn't make it look like kid-central, it's awesome (we got the white and grey one).

T finally is not only in his big boy underwear...but also his big boy bed! Time flies, thanks Oyaco and Ubbi for making this house diaper free!!

Marvel Universe Live - post show re-cap!

Tonight was the night... Marvel Universe Live!!! M and T were all decked out in their superhero gear and raring to go! All our favorites showed up to help save the world from Loki and his bad guys! Ironman, Hawkeye, Captain America, Wolverine, Hulk, Thor and Spiderman along with all the others teamed up to  save some friends from Loki and get rid of the nastiest characters they could! T and I loved all the pyrotechnics...while M and Daddy loved all the motorbike tricks preformed.

It was awesome to see all the little guys dressed up like their favorite superheros, and have a blast. Both M and T really enjoyed it and I loved the venue. We would totally go see this again...the story-line was fun and there was a ton of action!

Oyaco - LittleLife Toddler Daysacks

T received an Turtle Toddler Daysack from LittleLife and Oyaco to try out. He loves it! This mini
backpack has a full zippered main compartment, which was enough room to fit a drink, snacks and all his cars. The straps are adjustable, and are padded so he had no problem wearing this for long periods of time. Plus, having a chest strap helped keep the Daysack in place. For parents that want to have a handle on the LOs that like to take off....there's a detachable rein which complies with safety standards. 

These are super cute... there are a ton of different animals to choose from. T loves turtles, so that was a no-brainer, not going to lie...the dinosaur was a close second, but there is a ladybug, bee, shark, butterfly and clownfish too! I was really impressed with the quality of the Daysack, it was easy to wipe out.....everyone knows the kinds of messes little boys can make...and a few wipes took care of any spills really quickly.

Thanks to LittleLife and Oyaco.... T won't leave the house without his DaySack! It helps him be more independent, helps my bag feel lighter and he loves the design!

Super Soaker Blasters!!

I received a Nerf Super Soaker FlashFlood Blaster and Rebelle Super Soaker Tri Threat Blaster to try out this summer! We've been waiting for a super hot day to bust these puppies out and the past few
weekends we were in Super Soaker mode! The FlashFlood blaster holds 23 ounces of water you can get someone from about 40 feet away! It also has 2 nozzles so hubby totally soaked M when he finally caught up to her! She had an awesome hiding spot, so it took him a while!

The Nerf Rebelle Tri Threat soaker M loved. She could hit Daddy from 35 feet away and loved that it looked like a crossbow. She ran around ducking and hiding from him and totally unloaded all 25 ounces of water when he ran by the play house in the backyard. I still can't figure out how he didn't find her there, I guess she's just small enough to tuck in and hid by the door.
Water fights have now become a weekly event in this house, they absolutely love spending this time with each other! T even runs around with water balloons to get in on the action. Everyone knows Nerf plays a great role in providing children with products to promote imagination, play and a great time! Thanks Hasbro!!!

Urban Farmhouse #birthannouncement Baseball Review and Giveaway!

I had a chance to review these really cool personalized baseball birth announcements from Urban Farmhouse! They were nice enough to send one for both M and T, because we're HUGE ball fans! These are real baseballs that are laser engraved with the birth details of your LO. I loved how well done these were, they were perfect!!! T's room is baseball themed so it was a "no-brainer" on where these would end up...however... I added them to a shadow box I had started and put in hi birth announcement and it was perfect!!

Now... they've asked to show a few images of the product, due to the personal nature (I don't share full names and pics of the kids anymore), I won't show the ones we actually received... BUT here's one from their website to show the actual image and a perfect example of how to use the product.... AND my most favorite picture I took of T when he was first born holding a ball. How I WISH I had this when he was born... it's the 1 thing that's missing from my shot. Sara was awesome to work with, everything was super easy and these came super fast! The quality is amazing... I just love them!

Spring Snacking from The Healthy Shopper!

We got to try out 2 snack food picks from the Healthy Shopper. Earth Balance Creamy Coconut and Peanut spread was on their lists of picks (and 1 that I've reviewed before). This is great for adding that "little bit of something" to your snack time, including baking! Get creative!

The Earth Balance P.B. Popps lasted all of 5 minuted in this house. They are popcorn coated with oats and wrapped in a peanut butter cluster. Hubby threw back the entire bag in one sitting! These crunchy little bundles of joy are Non-GMO, Vegan, Dairy and Gluten-Free, plus the 0g trans fats keeps us happy. Check out their products here!

Both products are available at Loblaws so make sure you swing by to pick up some! WE love trying new things, and those little P.B. Popps are definitely on the RE-BUY List! Thanks Healthy Shopper!

Easter....with Hasbro! Makes sense to me!

With Easter a weekend away, we all know the Easter Bunny is preparing to make it a fun one for all our LOs. Sometimes though... he may need a little bit of help....especially when looking for ideas other than the sugar filled kind :). With both M and T with a sweet tooth, this house ends up becoming chocolate central after any occasion. This year, I've put a good word in with my furry friend and have decided to mix it up a bit. Yes, he will still fill plastic eggs and hide them all over the house, but making "creativity" a must have, will be sure to surprise.

Hasbro has some great ideas to help your LO let out their inner super hero and perfect basket fillers, to ensure less of a sugar high. T is going to be super stoked with his Captain America flying shield and Iron Man mask. The shield is just like Captain America's.... he can wear it on his arm and have a killer time warding off his arch nemesis... M. LOL! The Iron Man mask will be definitely encourage him to use his creative juices...he loves to play pretend, so watching him run around thinking he is a super hero is just awesome!!!

The Play-Doh bunny and chick stampers are an awesome filler for M and T's baskets. Play-Doh is a must have in this house...always a hit and on both of their top 10 lists of things to do. These are super cute, they can shape, mold and stamp their way to a fun Easter. Plus, 2 come in the pack, so the Easter Bunny can stick one in each of their baskets to help encourage sharing, which seems to be the issue of the month.

The My Little Pony Mark Magic Water Cuties are the newest addition to the My Little Pony line-up. They come with a comb and barrette so M will be able to do her hair, but the best part... they're filled with water a glitter like a snow globe so they sparkle! She's going to love this!!

I love the fact that there are so many options from Hasbro to help introduce some fun and exciting changes to our yearly Easter egg hunt that doesn't include sugar! I'm telling you, we're still working on Valentines Day chocolate, that's how much there was! Thank you Habro for giving the Easter Bunny some fun options to get their imaginations going!

Disney on Ice - Frozen Post Show Review #DisneyonIceInsider

Frozen finally came to Toronto last night and M and her little buddy K had a BLAST!!! M was super excited, she barely could sleep the night before and was counting down the days. It was awesome to see all the little Elsa's running around as we watched how Anna and Elsa's story unfolded. I liked that we recognized the entire story and even had a visit from some of our other favorite princesses.

As usual the performance was really well done, the music was awesome, and we loved the lights and snow. Plus, hearing every little girl in the place sing was amazing! They were all in awe, and it was really great to see. My favorite guys were there.... Sven and Olaf didn't disappoint, they were just as fun as in the movie!  We had a great if you want to get some tickets hurry!!
