Wean Machine - Review

I received a Wean Machine to try out... and it's really cool! It is a handheld baby food maker.... it can squish and strain anything! It's kind of like a backwards garlic press...if that makes sense. I put in some fruit for "M" into the chamber... added the strainer on top and squished it together. The best part... it comes with a spoon that sits in the middle of the machine... so it's great for storage...plus you'll never forget it! Once the food is through the strainer the chamber holds everything so you can feed your baby right from it!

I totally wish I had this when "M" was little... wow.. I remember having to make everything...freeze it and take ice-cubes with me everywhere....having to find somewhere to heat it up... ugh..I'm having horrible flashbacks! This way you can just mash up anything that you're eating at the same time... then give it a rinse.

I was really surprise how easy it is to use, and there are different strainers so you can go from mush to chunks in 2 seconds.... and you only need 1 hand to do it....I'm impressed.

Huge thanks to Oyaco for letting me try one out! For more information on ordering and finding Canadian distributors visit www.oyaco.com

Deuce G2 - Review and Giveaway!

A while ago I reviewed a Deuce watch and loved it...so I was super excited when they asked to have a review done about the new G2. The new one has all the great qualities of the first... super flexible, comfortable to wear, easy to set...and totally perfect for the gym. The main differences are seen in form factor. The G2 is thicker than the original...and comes in different colours. Makes a huge statement when you wear it....from casual day at work to your football or baseball game in the evening. I decided to choose a small white one... as I have the black original in a bigger size. Someone out there is probably thinking... are you nuts to get a white watch? So'k a baby wipe gets off anything that made its way onto my new work out buddy. They have some basketball team branded versions of the G2 as well... totally need to see some hockey ones! Would love a Toronto Maple Leaf one!

Huge thanks to Deuce for hitting me up for another review...and offering a giveaway!

What's up for grabs??? Your own Deuce G2! - you can pick the size and colour! Dependent on stock levels: (Canada & U.S)
Contest Closed January 21st!!

Cat in the Hat Costume - Product Review

I have reviewed a few children's costumes in the past, so this time I wanted to try out an adult costume. The Cat in the Hat is pretty big in this household so I figured it would be really cute to do a Dr.Seuss costume. The Cat in the Hat costume is really cool.... comes with a one piece body....with the tail attached, white gloves, open face mask (for the neck and ears) and the signature red and white hat. I like that the white parts of the costume has longer fur... and that the bow is attached to the main body....so you don't have to worry about losing it! Everything is good quality... and the pricing is really good too.

I like this costume so much I think that I'm going to do a Cat in the Hat theme for her next birthday, and have a friend dress up in it! Super cute! On that note... I checked out everything about Dr.Seuss and found a few awesome websites for activities and games.

This costume will be well used that's for sure... super huge thanks to Costumesupercenter.com for another great product review! Can't wait for the next one!

Walrooz Sled - Review and Giveaway!

I was really excited when I was approached to review this product... 1...because it looks super cool....2 because its totally affordable and 3.... "M" is a total snow bunny and loves tobogganing and stuff. The really cool this is you can connect the sleds together! At least I thought it was a really good idea. I would have loved this when I was a kid... being about to go down the hill with all my friends at once! The sleds are plastic...kinda flexible....and come in red, blue, green and orange (we got an orange one). This sled by BenBat (they also make some other cool stuff.... I gotta find where I can find the GoVinci... M would love to try that out)...... and comes in 2 sizes (small and large).

Last year we made a a mini slope for her in the backyard and sent her down on a toboggan...she loved it...so I can't wait for this winter. We got a tiny bit of snow last week so I was totally dragging her all over the lawn and backyard on this little sled. I really like that it's super light weight too. It'll be easy to carry back and forth to the hill this year!

Tooth Time Kit - Review and Giveaway!!!

I received a Tooth Time kit from Tooth Timer. It includes the "Ready-Set-Brush!" booklet, a toothbrush and the Tooth Timer. The booklet has some great tips like getting your child to hold a mirror when you brush/floss their teeth so they can see what you are doing. There are also fun facts which "M" thought were funny... like...how many teeth a T-Rex had. I like that the booklet explains how to brush and floss properly while also including some fun games for the little one at the end.

The tooth brush was a basic bristled toothbrush. "M" uses an electric one at home so we brought it to preschool. They brush their teeth after lunch....so she gets hers cleaned 3 times a day, which is awesome.

Now...the Tooth Timer...super cute (shaped like a tooth)..and times 1 and 2 min intervals. Basically its an egg timer but for your teeth. "M" liked making it a game to try to beat the tooth....lol. She'd brush and brush until the bell went off. We've always brushed for 2 minutes, but used the digital timer from my electric toothbrush, I'm happy she's got her own now :)

This kit is a great idea, very informative, makes brushing fun for kids and makes life that little bit easier for parents, and helps promote healthy gums and teeth!

Thanks to The Tooth Timer Company for sending out a kit for us to try out!

What's up for grabs??? Your own Tooth Time Kit! (Canada and U.S)
Contest Closes January 14th!!
