Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Rise of the Turtles

Image
 I remember my kid brother being a big fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I just had no idea that they would become so popular again!  Did they even leave, or did I just stop noticing?  I am really not sure.... But I am sure that Broxton saw a couple of episodes and decided that he loves them. Thank goodness that one of the fast food places had the toys in their kids meals, as he now has a couple.  I just saw a friend of mine of Facebook post about her sons TMNT birthday party... Glad to see Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Donatello are still grabbing the attention of kids!!! We were recently sent the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle DVD for review.  Rise of the Turtles. Broxton was very excited and has already asked if he could take it to school!  Once again, those Turtles do not disappoint!  This would be a great gift to give to a younger kid you know!

Soladey Ionic Toothbrush

Image
I will admit, when I read about the Soladey Ionic Toothbrush, I was expecting something different. I don't really know what I was expecting, but I will say, I did think it was supposed to be different.  I just saw that it was an Ionic Toothbrush... If you didn't have water.. no big deal.  No need for toothpaste... What?! I thought that this was going to be a great toothbrush for Marc. 
Being that he is Military, I am always thinking of that what if...
What if he gets deployed?  I thought that this was going to be a great idea...
A toothbrush that he could use anywhere... No need for water or toothpaste.  Only thing you need is the actual toothbrush and a light source.  No, you don't need to have it in the sun for hours, you need just enough light that would operate a calculator! 
So - the toothbrush arrives and it is pretty "far off / The Jetsons" for me...
But get this... it seems like a normal toothbrush!  Yes, I guess I was thinking it was going to pu…

Food Play - Makes Eating Fun

If you remember my review on Healthy Foods from A to Z, you know I would love to share with you more information on introducing healthy foods to our young ones...
Here is a Guest Post from Stephanie Maze (the author) for you to enjoy:
Food Play That Makes Eating
Healthier and Fun
by Stephanie Maze Millions of people make resolutions to improve their lives--both at the beginning of a new year and throughout the year. In addition to personal resolutions, parents often promise to make their children's lives healthier and more productive as well.
Since children love to play and are eager to learn, here are a few fun projects adapted from Moonstone Press LLC's children's book, Healthy Foods From A to Z / Comida sana de la A a la Z, that make eating healthier both simple and fun: 1.  Young children who are learning their colors can sort through a variety of fruits and vegetables, and put them into piles of red, green, yellow, orange, blue, etc. Older children can practice their spe…

Shari's Berries - Delicious Delivery (Coupon Code)

Image
*** Updated with Coupon Code Link at Bottom!  *** Broxton is at the age where he sees something and thinks that he just NEEDS it right then.  Christmas saw much of that, with every infomercial or toy that crossed his line of vision.  He might think he "needs" it, but hate to break it to ya, he doesn't get it all... Just recently he spotted an advertisement on TV for Shari's Berries.
That wasn't just a "need" for him... He decided that the whole house needed it.  I laughed and kept going about my business, but I was smiling so big inside because I had recently ordered some for review and they were headed our way!!!

For the review, I was allowed to choose what I though would be best for our family.  I will admit, it was hard, as every-single-thing on there looks amazing and I wanted it all.  I looked for a bit and logged off the computer.  I went back later on and looked a bit longer.  Not able to order it all, I thought it over for a bit longer... an…

I Care... and So Does Kohl's

Image
We all know that I love adding books to Broxton's library. I just hate that books for kids are so expensive...
Well, most of them are... but if you keep Kohl's in mind, you can save a bundle!!
Not only does Kohl's sell books, they also donate 100% of the net profits to kids' health and education initiatives!  
I like that they have a theme when they do their Kohl's Cares program.
For their Spring Program, they are going with Dr. Seuss.  The great thing about it?
The books are HARDBACK (love that!) and they also sell plush items that correlate to the book!  (The Cat from Cat in the Cat, Horton from Horton Hears a Who and so on and so forth.)
Not to leave anyone out, when they introduce their program, they also include items for adults. 
With the Dr Seuss line, they also have note cards... as well as two different cookbooks that are great for New Year Resolutions!

In the Spring Line, they have introduced:

Madly Madagascar for Valentines

Image
There is NO hiding that we are HUGE Madagascar fans..
All of us love these cartoons and no matter how long or short, we are always wanting more! 
I was excited to have the chance to add their Madly Madagascar (Valentines) DVD to our collection.

In Madly Madagascar, we have Alex trying to show how important his love of Valentines is.. Thanks to his time in New York City...   But the thrill of giving Valentines to everyone (for him, it was to get them back in return) is quickly interrupted when a love potion seems to just fall from the sky!

We follow the Madagascar gang as they seem to celebrate Valentines doing different things... and yes, we even get to enjoy those silly Penguins! 

This is a very short adventure, at only 22 minutes.... but it was still cute and worth watching!!!!
Would make a great Valentines gift instead of just chocolate that will be gone soon enough! 
Note, I did say JUST chocolate... not instead!  Need both! 

In the extras they have a short called First Flight...
