Eco Eggs Review

Disclosure - Per FTC Regulations, I am disclosing that I received product(s) from this company/website, free of charge, for review. I was in no other way compensated for my review. The views expressed in this review are my own, honest opinions and any claims should be verified on the sponsor's site.

Its that time of year!  Easter is here!  WooHoo!  And, while I like to keep Easter about what it should be about - the Resurrection - I still like to do some fun things for my kids during spring time.  And what is more fun than an Egg Hunt!  But did you know that each year petroleum-based plastic eggs put thousands of tons of toxic emissions & landfill waste into the environment?  Thankfully, a Minnesota woman has come up with a better egg - Eco Eggs!!!

Citrus Lane March 2013 Boxes Review and 50% Off Your First Box!!!

Its that time again!  Time for another Citrus Lane review!  WooHoo!!!  As I've mentioned before, Citrus Lane is a WONDERFUL subscription company that sends a care box to your kids every month.  Each box is catered to your child's gender and age and they make boxes for newborn to 5 year olds!  (You can also sign up while pregnant - like I did - and receive newborn boxes each month until baby arrives!  Its a great way to stock up on some awesome baby necessities!)

This month's boxes were INCREDIBLE - as always!!!  Let's start with my toddler's box this time.  I get a box for a 2 and a half year old and here's what she got:

Organic Baby N Things Wondersheet Review

You may remember my previous review of OrganicBabyNThings.  This is a fabulous online store that sells all sorts of natural and organic items for baby!  One of the items they sell is the Amazing Wonder Sheet by Bonn Bonn Baby and they were kind enough to send me one for review!


Bink Link Review

As I've mentioned before, my second sweet baby is quite a pacifier lover!  Unfortunately, my first little one never took a paci, so we didn't really have any paci-supplies when we came home from the hospital.  A dear friend was kind enough to supply us with quite a few pacis as part of her baby shower gift to us, but we didn't have any pacifier clips.  So I went on the hunt.  And what did I find?  Some of the cutest pacifier clips EVER from Bink Link!!!

Hip-Peas Review

You may remember my past review of Hip-Peas children's haircare products.  Hip-Peas is a great company that makes natural hair products for your little ones.  All of their products are Paraben-free, Phthalate-free, Petrochemical-free, Sulfate-free, and Cruety-free!  WooHoo!!!  Oh!  And 10% of their profits go to children's charities!  Well, the wonderful folks at Hip-Peas were kind enough to send me a few more products to review!

Toosh Review

I'm always looking for safe, natural skincare products for my kids.  There are so many nasty ingredients in most products and I just don't want to use those on them.  I've found that most of the really great, natural skincare lines were developed by moms who wanted safe products for their kids.  And that's how Toosh came to be!

Precious Ideas Li'l Shopper Review

I've seen a lot of shopping cart covers since I had kids.  I've even reviewed a couple that I love!  Shopping cart covers keep away lots of nasty germs and other icky things that your kids can be exposed to while sitting in those carts.  But have you ever really looked at a shopping cart seat?  Next time you're at the store, take a gander.  They look HORRIBLY uncomfortable!  Seriously!  I don't think I could sit still for 5 minutes in one of those!  It looks like a torture device!  Thankfully, as many moms in the past have done, a clever mom came up with an answer - the Li'l Shopper!

Kaleidoscope Kids Book Review

Having majored in English, I am very aware of the importance of reading.  We began reading to our little one the day she came home from the hospital.  I especially love children's books that are bright and colorful because I know they will keep my kids' attention.  That's why I was so pleased to find The Kaleidoscope Kids

DottieBox Review

I love a good subscription box!  They are so much fun!  Getting a little surprise box full of fun things makes each month like your birthday!  I also love Etsy!!!  I'm a bit of a "crafter" so I love seeing handmade items that other people have made!  That's what makes Dottiebox LLC so fun and unique!  Its the best of both!!!

Wubbanub Yellow Duck Review

As I've mentioned before, my second little one is a serious paci-lover.  And I have to say, a baby with a paci is pretty stinkin' cute!  The problem with pacifiers though, is that they are forever popping out of baby's mouth, falling on the ground, getting lost, etc.  Ugh!  But, as they say, "necessity is the mother of invention."  And when it comes to inventing things for babies, nobody does it better than a mother!  That's how the Wubbanub came to be!

Smile Squared Toothbrush Review

I have another great company to add to my Companies That Are Doing Good list.  Today's company - Smile Squared

So what makes Smile Squared more than just a toothbrush company?  Well, I think their mission statement explains it perfectly:
"Smile Squared wants to give every child the health and confidence that comes with clean teeth. For every toothbrush you buy, Smile Squared donates one to a child in need. We believe even small, everyday products, like toothbrushes, can have a big impact on the world."

HeidiKids Baby Toys Review

I'd like to introduce you to a fabulous toy company I just recently learned about - HeidiKids!

Mayapple Baby Suri The Octopus Teething Toys Review

Hi. I'm a mom and I'm addicted to cute baby products. There.  I said it.  Whew!  I feel so much better!  And now I can tell you about a super cute and functional baby product that I just found - the Suri the Octopus and Friends Teether Set by Mayapple Baby

BabySmart Cooshee Booster Hybak Review

When my toddler was old enough, we switched her from a regular high chair to a booster-type seat.  The seat, however, was made out of a really hard plastic.  It didn't look comfortable AT ALL.  I think that's why she always asked, "Get me down, Mama," as soon as she finished eating.  It made dinner time quite difficult - especially if she finished before we did.  That hard plastic seat just wasn't comfortable for her.  (Sometimes I think toddler product inventors don't actually take comfort into consideration.  I mean, I know I wouldn't want to sit on a hard plastic seat like that!) 

Thankfully, I've found a FABULOUS alternative - the Cooshee Booster Hybak by BabySmart USA!

SmartNoggin NogginStik Review

Update - Baby girl is now more than 6 months old, so I thought it was time for an update.  She always liked this toy - even as a brand new baby, but now she LOVES it!  Seriously!  She's been playing with it for nearly 2 hours straight - which is quite a long time for a 6 month old! In her swing, in her crib, in my lap - everywhere!!!  I wish I had 2 more so I could keep one in the car and one in my diaper bag!!!  The rattle sound, lights, and mirror just mesmerize her!  And it's SUPER easy for her to hold!!!  LOVE! 

With a newborn in the house, I'm always looking for baby toys that have great developmental uses.  SmartNoggin Toys has developed just such a toy - the NogginStik!!!  This is an incredible toy that helps encourage early milestone in your baby's development.

NogginStik was created by an early intervention therapist and can be used to:
Encourage parent/infant interaction
Capture a child's focus and increase attention
Assist with the development of visual tracking, which is a critical pre-literacy skill
Provide tactile interest to touch and visual interest to see
Help children auditorily locate sound
Enhance grasping and holding skills

The head changes colors to help with visual stimulation...

The whole body of the toy is very tactile and there's a rattle inside.  There's also a mirror on the bottom...

The NogginStik has also been evaluated by  Click HERE to see their evaluation.

Check out the NogginStik on the SmartNoggin website Here.

Buggy Bagg Jr. Review

Do you know how HORRIBLY filthy shopping carts are?  There have been studies done that show that an average shopping cart contains more traces of urine, feces, etc. than a public restroom.  Seriously!  How disgusting is that????!!!???  Thank goodness for Buggy Baggs!!!  Buggy Baggs are fabulous, functional shopping cart covers!  The awesome folks at Buggy Baggs were kind enough to send me one of their Buggy Bagg Jr. covers for review...

Bean-B-Clean Cradle Cap Brush Review

When my first baby was born, she had cradle cap.  It used to drive me crazy.  And being my firs child, I was worried about how hard to scrub her head, etc.  I mean, come on.  Babies have those soft spots!  I also couldn't find any kind of brush that was gentle on my baby while still being effective to help.  Thankfully, now that baby number 2 has arrived, I've found Bean-B-Clean!

This nifty little item is a scalp massaging brush that's perfect for helping to get rid of cradle cap!  Just use it every day as directed!  Some people even say they continued using the brush after the cradle cap was gone because the messaging effect of the brush calms and sooths their babies in the bath!  Now that's a product that's worth checking out!

Find out more about Bean-B-Clean and how it helps with cradle cap HERE.

Polka Dot Babe Etsy Shop Review

We just brought home our second bundle of joy.  And what a joy it was.  I really wanted to get our 2 sweet girls a few personalized items.  But I didn't want to shower them with lots of toys.  (We've got plenty of those.)  One of the items I chose came from Polka Dot Babe Etsy Shop.  This shop is FABULOUS!!!  They sell some great items, the main one being hooded towels for kids!  My girls' towels arrived folded neatly and tied with a cute ribbon!  It was such a great presentation!
