I honestly think this was an amazing concept- a cardboard bassinet. I just think it’s practical, not to mention trendy- and completely GREEN. Introducing the Green Lullaby Eco-Cradle. Practicality: Basically, you don’t need any tools to set it up or take apart. It’s lightweight that you can take it just about anywhere, except a picnic in a downpour. It’s also easy to assemble and disassemble so you can fit it in the back of your car with ease when you need to bring it on a family trip. Because of its portability, it can be brought into any room, any home, and you always have somewhere to put the baby down. This Eco-Cradle are for infants up to 30lbs and can even hold up to 88lbs, while still complying with the international standards for safety and stability. Trendy: Because of the space efficiency, it matches every decor, with it’s simple shape and lines. It’s very modern and customizable. Just look at the pictures, they speak for themselves. I’d rather have a functional modern room with this bassinet, than an expensively decked out nursery that you’ll probably only use for 2 years max. GREEN: Once you’re completely done having all 6 […]
This was our Christmas gift this year to Emma because one- she LOVES to pretend that she’s catching butterflies and two- she’s into elephants (we don’t know why). So instead of pretending, we decided to try this game by Hasbro. Elefun– a game that blows the butterflies out of a 4ft. trunk. It comes with 4 nets, 30 butterflies, and a friendly blue Elephant. Aside from needing 4 C batteries, it’s an ok game. It would perform better if the fan was a little stronger since the butterflies would come out a little slow and not as powerful. So, you have to wait a little longer. Also, it only comes with 30 butterflies, so one game only lasts at most 2 minutes or so. Then you have to keep refilling it so expect your toddler to keep needing your assistance. Fun factor? Really great. My 3 year old daughter and her almost 3 year old cousin squeals in excitement. I doubt the game’s excitement and fun will last until they’re 5 but for now, it helps their coordination. Source: Walmart Price: $18 Age Range: 3-6 years
isn’t she cute? today, her flower girl dress (2/3T) arrived for one of the weddings she’s in this summer. once she tried it on, she didn’t want to take it off. she twirled in it, waltzed in it, and even wanted to sleep in it. so since she loved it so much, we had our own little photo session. so like a doting mother, i took tons of pictures and put up my favorites on our twelvesixteen gallery. she absolutely loves the dress. she looks adorable; now the problem is getting her to walk down that aisle w/ a huge smile on her face. the best thing about this dress, aside from the fact that this style would be the same I myself would wear if i could choose a bridesmaid’s dress (or shorter), is that it’s completely affordable. looking at dresses online for retail, or in a boutique, i would have to shell about $99-$140. luckily, i look for sales online, which i usually find (hence my reputation for being a personal shopper). so i found this dress for under $40- for a soft satin feel dress! it looks very formal. plus! (another one?) plus! the belt comes off, […]
we bought this for our nephew samsam this christmas. he’s about almost 2 years old, with a baby brother on the way, so we thought this would be a great gift for him and his baby brother. he’ll get one more good year out of it, while it waits for number two to turn one and ride as well. i actually wanted to get this for him since last year because of all the great reviews. Not only was it aesthetically adorable, but it’s safe! With a wide base, it doesn’t shake from side to side which will prevent it from toppling over. It’s also the perfect height for a 2 year old, sturdy for a strong baby boy who violently likes to jump and test its specs. Also, if you didn’t know, babies at this age, LOVES to jump and bounce, so this really promotes a lot of active play, as well as entertains with its noise and lights. It spins and bounces, so it allows my nephew to use his coordination. He seems to like it, and even fights his 2.5 year old cousin so he can ride on it. For the price, it’s great. It’s like having […]
we got this for zem for Christmas when she was 2.5 years old. we wanted something that would be educational, interacting, easy to store, and attractive. this really met those expectations because she’s recently been learning to read her alphabet so this was another way to supplement and reinforce her memory. so far, with the week that she’s had it, she’s been able to learn 3 new letters, aside from the letters she already knew. it’s nice too because of its 2 option sound settings- ABC’s or animal sounds, which is good because sometimes Emma LOVES to mimic animal sounds. I think it’s great because she loves animals, and this allows her to pretend play, learn new animals, while subconsciously learning her alphabet. it also comes w/ 26 animals, all wearing their respective letters. it’s great; plus the animals are plastic, round, and super cute. lastly, I’ve been looking around for prices and the cheapest I’ve seen was for $41, but we were able to buy it on sale for $30 at Target during Christmas, which is pre-tty good for us! I think it was really worth it and I’m really glad we found this gift. it’s something i really […]
Bought: TARGETPrice: $9.99Website: www.babygenius.com I guess for ten dollars, it wasn’t such a bad purchase but here are some bad stuff about it: -the songs are sung by a man and a woman, no children and their voices are pretty boring.-the arrangements are very simple, with minimal instruments-pretty boring, very simple, traditional, with no surprises, no bang-no variety in music style this really is for infants-3 yrs. old so it won’t really grow with your child, esp. if you have an extremely musical child. emma likes to listen to it for 2-3 songs, then gets pretty bored with it. it doesn’t do much to hold the attention of your toddler, even though people may like to argue that a toddler already doesn’t have enough attention span…well, for emma, if she likes the music, she’ll stay with it; she’ll dance to it and respond physically and positively. so my review? not so much baby-genius, more like baby-average.
Genuine Kids from TARGET made this adorable sweat-outfit, with a feminine twist, adding ruffles, stripes, tucks, and bows. It’s soft, stretchy, and will be flexible enough for emma who is always on the move. Jacket: on sale: $6 Pants: one sale: $5
