  • Product Dimensions: 11.3 x 8.7 x 0.4 inches

I was sent the book The Possible Police to review and was not disappointed. Written by Wylde Scott and illustrated by Hannah Shuping.

The book starts off as the author Wylde Scott is a young boy in his bed dreaming and the possible police come in and tell him that his dreams are simply not possible.

Throughout the book young Wylde Scott grows older and talks about everything that he can accomplish in his dreams and with a little imagination.

This book is beautifully illustrated and is sure to capture the imagination of young and old alike and encourages all to follow their dreams because everything that has become has become because someone has imagined it and followed their dreams.

This Old Van has ¬†quickly become a favorite in our home! Written by Kim Norman and Illustrated by Carolyn Conahan this book takes you through a road trip adventure of grandparents off to see their grandchild in their old vw bus. The words of the story are catchy and written to the tune of this old man. Thisoldvan2The illustrations are beautiful and fun and beautifully detailed. The first time I read this book to Morgan he was loving finding all the trains with faces. The second time we read it he was singing along with me, ” With a click clack rattle rack” on each page. It was fun to read together and ask questions like, “How many bunnies are there?”, “where is the puppy?” ect. This book made is super easy to get involved with the book rather than just another story to read out loud.

This book is perfect for kiddos of any age as it is fun to read to a child but would also be really fun for them to read to you. This book would make the perfect gift, you can find it Here on amazon where it is currently selling for $7.76 for a hardcover and if you ask me is a steal… GET ON IT ūüėČ

Review: Kandoo Childrens Hand Soap

kandooLittle man and I were sent the Kandoo Wash your Hands Moisturizing hand soap to review.

We received the Funny Berry Scented soap. ¬†It has a large hand pump to make it easy for the kiddos to pump it themselves, and comes in fun bright colors so that it makes hand washing more fun for your little one and lets you know that they are completely covered in soap to get the maximum amount of clean ūüôā It contains Natural moisturizers like Vitamin E and other fruit extracts to moisturize while cleaning. It is hypoallergenic and there are no parabens or SLS, its a mild formula and has been dermatologist tested.

I think this is a pretty fantastic product. Why?
1. Its bright colored container attracts my little guy to it and makes him want to wash his hands!
2. The big hand pump makes it so he can wash his hands all by himself.
3. It smells awesome. (yep this makes the top 3)
4. The fun colors make it so I know when he is all soaped up and all the soap is off.
5. It doesn’t bother my sons eczema.

Review: SoapSox

unnamed

700x466_Family_6pk__44019.1417113516.700.500

I had the fantastic opportunity to work with SoapSox. SoapSox are super fun adorable washcloth stuffed animal hybrids.

When I first got a chance to check out the website I saw the video and was super excited to get our SoapSox in the mail. We received an adorable little dragon names Scorch.

soapsox

So something you need to know about my home is bath time is pretty much the worst time of the day. I’m sure the neighbors think that we waterboard our child by the yelling and crying that goes on. Plus I’m pretty sure its a medical mystery on why one week a toddler will loves baths and the next a toddler will act like you just told them you are eating the family pet for dinner.

However when our SoapSox came in the mail… bath time was about to change in a way we didn’t expect. ¬†About an hour after Scorch came in the mail it was time for bath time. It was great. Morgan HATES getting his hair washed… but silly scorch had to splash around in the water and then land on Morgans head and shake off (yep I totally used the soapsox to suck up water and soak my kiddo head, and Morgan wasn’t pissed at me.. but thought scorch was super silly.” ¬†Then I said Scorch was really really hungry and that his favorite snack is shampoo… so Morgan loved pouring the shampoo into the dragons mouth. After squishing the soapsox a couple of times, a lather started to build… and then that silly little dragon started to dance scortch2.on my kiddos head… AKA totally washing his hair and there were no tears or screams!!!! ¬†We were totally able to get through bath time, with a clean kiddo, and a washed hair without any tears… and it didn’t only work on that bath but has worked on every bath for the last month.

I know at first I was worried about him getting mildewy or stinky, but he has been doing great, we hang him up after each bath to dry and he is good as new.

This little guy sells here for $14.95. I believe this product is TOTALLY worth the price. It has made my life so much easier and less stressful at bath time. He is made of high quality polyester / sponger and is antimicrobial. He is safe for all ages, ¬†and is much bigger than I expected! He is 9″ x 3″ and when you want to wash him he is machine washable and just tumble dry him on low!

Review: Little Tikes Sizzle and Serve Grill

71OL331U+iL._SL1500_I had the absolute pleasure in receiving the Little Tikes Sizzle and Serve Grill to review. The Little Tikes Sizzle and Serve grill‘s dimensions are¬†as follows:¬†19.5 x 14.9 x 23.8 inches. This was the perfect size for my two year old son. It comes in a large box and assembly is required, however its super easy and no tools are necessary and takes about 10 minutes (max). ¬†It comes with everything you need to get your kiddo started on making an imaginary dinner for the family. It comes with, two hotdog buns, two, two hot dogs, two sets of hamburger buns, two hamburgers, ketchup,mustard, spatula and tongs. There are totally some pros and cons to this toy, because I feel like over all this is a great toy and my son is loving it I will go over the cons¬†first and end on a positive note.

Cons:

  • I feel like this is really light weight. This isnt¬†the quality that I have gotten to know over the years with Little Tikes. However, my son loves to move it all around the house and managed to get it outside next to Dads grill all by himself (still not really sure how this happened)
  • Missing the sizzle!!! So… I was so excited for this to come in the mail because I didn’t know anything about the item other than its name and the brand. I expected it to need battery and make a sound, perhaps even light up… nope.. no batteries… no sound.. no lights… a little disappointment. It does have a knob on the side of the grill that makes some clicking noises when turned.¬†818dAI9Bx1L._SL1164_

Pros:

  • The price. ¬†The Little Tikes Sizzle and Serve Grill¬† sells for $24.99. This is an excellent price for any large toys from Little Tikes, and I’m believing that this is why it is so light weight to help cut cost.
  • Great food. The quality of the play food IS the quality that I expected from Little Tikes! Morgan loves that you can put the hot dog in the bun and put the hamburger together. They are tough enough that they can get toddler drool and bites on it and not dent or crack.
  • Easy to put together
  • Kiddo approved (have I mentioned that Morgan Loves it)

I think this is a fantastic toy with a fantastic price and a great way to get your little one into using their imagination!

  • Grade Level: Preschool – Kindergarten
  • Series: AMNH ABC Board Books
  • Board book: 18 pages
  • Publisher: Sterling Children’s Books; Brdbk edition (April 21, 2015)
  • Language: English

I was sent a copy of ABC Universe to review through¬†Sterling Publishing Co. When I heard it was the ABC’s with the Universe I was fully expecting¬†illustrations,¬†However I was so wrong. ¬†The photographs in this book are BEAUTIFUL! My two year old is currently going through this “space stage” where everything and anything having to do with space is not only awesome, but gets a ton of “Oooh look!” Each night when i check on my toddler before I go to bed I am¬†guaranteed¬†to find this book either¬†clutched in his little hands or next to him in bed. I have read this book countless times. This is a book that not only your toddler will love, but you will love and perhaps even learn a thing or two yourself! You can find this book on Amazon where it sells for $6.17Untitled
