Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale

I received a Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale for review. It actually uses Microban®
antimicrobial technology which prevents odors and bacteria from growing on the scale and works the the entire lifetime of the scale! This is awesome for the kids, because bacteria is a huge no-no... I'm kind of obsessed with making sure we're super clean. The scale is large, lightweight and has a large display. The display lights up in blue and the scale itself it black, keeping it looking modern. I really liked that when you stepped on the scale you didn't slip and that it was large so even the LOs could step on and get an accurate reading. M jumped on a few times and I thought that she may flip it by not being in the middle of the scale. She didn't have a problem like some of the other scales we have used. The best part is that there are no buttons to press or settings to fix. Literally you just step on and the reading pops up within 10 seconds.

Thanks to Ozeri for sending us out one to try, and for the lifetime warranty they provide on their products! If anything every happens, I know they'll be happy to help!

Caseco - Product Review

I received some products to try out from Caseco for review. I received a Shock Express case, a PowerBox Universal and a Bullet 3.1 Amp car charger. The case is awesome! It keeps my phone totally protected from the munchkins, doesn't add a ton of weight to the phone and keeps it sleek looking. It has a hard shell backing you snap on after putting on the clear screen protector. There is rubber side panels to help absorb the shock of dropping it etc. I really liked that the case has a glossy finish and that there is some textured rubber along the sides so it is easy to grip your phone. 

The PowerBox Universal is an easy to use portable backup battery charger. The size is awesome, it's rechargeable and it's just a bit bigger than the size of a lipstick. All you do is charge the unit then throw it into your bag to use for when you get low on battery life on your device. It is easy to use, all you need to do is plug your USB cable that comes with your phone and it can charge your phone or tablet.

The Bullet 3.1 Amp car charger has 2 USB ports, which is awesome because it lets us charge both our phones at the same time. It fits in the lighter adapter in our vehicle and love the fact that it is strong enough to charge the tablets and even the camera!

All the products I got to try are available in a ton of fun colors, so you can get as funky as you like with your accessories. Thanks Caseco!

Fanny Foozle - Review and Giveaway!

Fanny Foozle lives in Flamboozle...she is pink...fun and hangs out with her Foodle Dog named Sam. Other
Flaboozle characters include Momma and Poppa and her BFFs Fenelope and Dumple. Fanny loves adventure so your preschoolers can read long with her on a smartphone or tablet. The story includes songs, life lessons and challenges that come up each day. It is interactive, and there are puzzles and other activities... M liked the matching game the best. She's always loved those types of games, so I'm totally not surprised that she went for that option right away. My fave part was that there is a read along option so M can follow while helping her word recognition.

There is also a new application called Fanny Foozle Pop available, were you get to pop balloons of your favorite characters. T liked this game! Plus...it's free in the iTunes and Android stores, so why not? Want to try it out? Click HERE for the Pop game for Apple devices and HERE for the Fanny Foozle learning center app! Have an Android device? Click HERE to try out all the Fanny Foozle goodies! If you have a Kindle...click HERE to get the book!

Say Please - Product Review and Giveaway!!

I received some Lunchbox Love notes from Say Please for review. Lunchbox Love are cute little notes you
put in your little (or big ones) lunches. The notes range from having positive to fun notes and trivia. My faves were the interesting facts ones. For example.... in the Christmas volume we received, one of the "Did you Know?" saying on the back of a card mentioned that in the Ukraine, the youngest of the family watches for the evening star to appear. This signifies that the family can start their Christmas feast. I found this interesting because I do have Ukrainian in my background and never heard of this before. Some of my other faves include reminders like being respectful to others, being kind and treating others the way you would like to be treated. Some of the easier cards M was able to read. We kinda have a rule in this house that she HAS to read any 4 letter (or under) words in the books we read. She's only 4 so I think she's doing an awesome job. She could read many of these little notes.

Each of the volumes comes with 10 cards with pre-written messages and 2 blank ones for you to fill in. They come in a plastic holder and are about the size of a business card. I liked the colors of the cards and that they actually came with the little cases. I could totally see myself misplacing them if they didn't think of this! They have a ton of different volumes to purchase, all different...so don't worry about having duplicates. They also have different versions, which is nice...kids, sets, teens and everyone versions plus the seasonal ones are really fun!
M thought these were really cute and her teachers thought they were an awesome idea to help the smaller ones learn to read! Thanks to Say Please for sending us out some Lunchbox Love!
