Holiday Gift Guide: Pink Tooth Wireless Headset

chicBuds is a company that offers fashion forward electronics for ipods, mp3 players, iphones, cellphones and more! I’m a fan of this company being already given the opportunity to try out  their chic ear buds, if you missed my review on those, you can find it by following “this link“.

I was given the opportunity to review another one of their  products called the “Pinktooth”. The pink tooth is an exceptionally awesome product that works as a headset for various  mobile devices.  I found syncing this to work with my Sprint Rant phone a breeze and found the sound quality to be exceptionally clear when in use!

Some of the  great features  this devices has to offer are as follows;

  1. image_thumb1Light Weight
  2. Crystal Clear Sound
  3. Rechargable USB battery
  4. Up to six hours of talk time
  5. Stand by time is about 200 hours before having to be charged again
  6. A set of three ear bud cushions are included to give the right fit
  7. A nifty ear attachment is also included
  8. The packaging tin keeps everything together and can easily travel along with you
  9. Easy installation
  10. Keeps you totally hands free!

I love my “pinktooth” by chicBuds and use it alot more than I thought I would. Often I am chasing around my toddler whom isn’t always the easiest to handle while talking on the phone. With this device, I can still handle my child and not miss important calls from Doctors, family, and friends.  I use mine when going out and even around the house when I am cooking or doing other chores!

I highly recommed “pinktooth” by chicBuds and encourage everyone to purchase one if  they have not already! If not purchasing one for yourself, how about for someone else you know that would really benefit from it? These would be a great gift to find in a stocking this Holiday Season! “Pink Tooth” retails for $48.00 and can be purchased at: http://www.chicbuds.com/pinktooth.html

Holiday Gift Guide: Scare Me Nots Review and Giveaway (closed)

GroupWithNames

ScareMeNots™ are plush creatures designed to take the “scary” out of monsters in more ways than one. Soft, cuddly, and appealing, they are perfect bedtime companions for all children. However, for kids with nighttime fears, ScareMeNots™ offer an extra sense of protection and comfort. Their special features allow them to ward off those scary things that hide in all the usual places (under the bed, in the closet, behind the drapes)—and in the unusual places as well!

GuardianGus_PhotoThe plush line is made up of six different characters with very different personalities: Defender Dave, Fearless Fred, Guardian Gus, Protector Patty, Valiant Valerie and Watchdog Wally.

My husband and I decided on bringing Guardian Gus into our families life.  Our 18 month old daughter  currently sleeps in the same room with mommy and daddy right now. We decided that when we do make the transition of moving her into her own room a lovey such as Gus would be the perfect companion in keeping her safe from all the things that seems to lurk in the dark corners of our childrens imaginations.

Here’s a little more information about Gus himself.

Guardian Gus, with an extra eye in each hand, is ideal for spotting monsters around corners and under beds.  He removes closet and hallway monsters by sliding one hand-eye under the door, while never leaving your little ones’ bedroom.  His assignments have taken him worldwide in search of monsters like Swamp Thing and Bigfoot.  He can detect any size monster, from the enormous Loch Ness monster to the greasy bite size Quagmire Quarter-Pounder, who’s aroma has lured many an unsuspecting youngster to it’s golden lair.  However, Gus is most renowned for his detection of the Bathtub Belly Slimer due to his use of S.W.A.T. (Soapy Water Approach Technique).  With one look at his lean, green body, children know this monster combatant means business.  Here in a recent photo he asked monsters “Do you want a piece of this?”

100_3723Gus as well as the other plushies have long tails in which Velrco is attached in order for your child to hang their friend from a door knob. The tail is also long enough to put up under your children’s mattress so the Scare Me Nots can keep a look at for those monsters that lurk under the bed!

Melody really likes Gus, and is one of her many friends that she makes sure is in her bed with her before she goes down for the night. As she gets older and makes the whole your own room transition, I’ll sit down with her and let her know a little more about her friend Gus.

I think these plushies are perfect for children up  to the age of 10 and are an excellent solution in ridding night time fears! It’s no wonder they’ve won so many great awards!

To learn more about Scare Me Nots, check out their website! You can read about the rest of the Scare Me Nots, enjoy fun freebies, read testimonials, as well as purchase them for 24.99 each.

Holiday Gift Guide: Fairy-Gram Review

shapeimage_1

fairgramAs a child, I was always fascinated with fantasy and the secretly intriguing lives of our magical winged little friends. Fairy’s seemed to have it all, as they flew through the forest and went on their ways spreading good cheer and gracing those whom they met with sheer mystery and wonder. What little girl wouldn’t want to be a fairy? Or at least get to dress up like one when playing pretend.

Thanks to Fairy-Gram.com, my little girl all adorably dressed in a Hot Pink fairy outfit looks like she is about to leave home and have adventures right along side Peter Pan in Never Ever Land.

The beautiful fairy costumes from Fairy Grams come in various shades of colors from everything from white to  rainbow.  Each costumes comes carefully gift wrapped and delivered straight to your home.

A Fairy Gram set includes a fairy tutu in which has free flowing flowers, a set of fairy wings, fairy ribbon wand, an adjustable fairy halo with tail, and two matching butterfly hair clips.  No worries about sizing, Fairy Grams are pretty much a one size fits all approximately fitting girls ages one to eight years old.

My daughter loves being a fairy! She gets really happy when I dress her up and she runs around the house shaking her little wand on everything giggling! I can’t wait till it gets warm again so I can dress her up and let her run through the woods! Can you imagine the photos? Definitely ones to be treasured forever!

I still can’t get over the price of just $35.95 for it all. These outfits are top of the line quality and will last throughout lots of play. If you know a little girl that loves dressing up and adores fairies, why not surprise  her with a special Fairy-Gram this Holiday season?

I recommend purchasing a leotard and tights if you’d like to complete the look. Though it’s acceptable for your little Fairy to wear whatever she would like whether it would be a Rock Star Tee with psychedelic leggings or Princess shirt with jeans !  We are all for originality and personal style here at Connected2Christ!
