Mini Toy Wrangler Review

minitoywrangler

I’ m going to share some love about the Luvloo Toy Wrangler! My daughter is in that stage where she thinks it’s fun to drop her toys, cups, or whatever and have me pick them up! This can get old after awhile, especially when I am out with friends at a restaurant and I can’t get  to her things under the table without making everyone move! Any Mom out there knows how much of a hassle this can be and that’s why Kristy, the founder of Luvloo came up with the Toy Wrangler!

I tested these out when I went grocery shopping! My mind was relieved when I knew my daughter wouldn’t lose or drop her toys on the dirty floor below. I shopped with peace of mind and was relieved to know my daughter would be more distracted by the toy wrangler and whatever I had attached  to it  rather than with nibbling on the shopping cart!

The Toy Wrangler has the great little straps, they Velcro strap to strap together to whatever you’d like to fasten it to whether it be a shopping cart, high chair, stroller, baby carrier, or car seat! On the other end of the wrangler are round circle links, you can use these links to attach your child’s favorite toy, a bottle, a sippy cup,  or just leave them be because my daughter just like’s nibbling on those too since she’s been teething a lot. They are easy to keep clean too, just throw them in the wash!

I wish I had these a lot sooner! I think these would make super great baby shower gifts too! I like clothes for baby shower gifts just as much as the next mommy, but I also like practical really useful gifts like these!

The Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox Review


toolbox2
When I heard about the Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox it sparked my interest quite a bit! What is it you ask? This toolbox, so to speak is a fun yet useful gift for any dad or new to be daddy! Now I know how baby showers go, usually it’s just us woman sitting around oooing and aaahing over all the cute little bibs, blankies, and booties! But what about Dad? I know most men really don’t care to show up at the baby showers and usually they aren’t allowed.  I always thought the rule where they weren’t allowed to come wasn’t very great… Dad is going to be just as much a part of babies life as mom is going to be, this is why I think this gift is so great. Most of the time Mom gets things and baby gets things for the shower and then Dad gets left out, this box changes that.

My husband although he’s been a dad for about nine months now was quite interested in this toolbox and he even daddydtoolmodeled some of the fun items found in the box just for me and you! I find this picture completely hilarious and what I wouldn’t give to see more daddy’s dressed up and using most of all the attire of the Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox !

I read over all the item descriptions when I first received it and literally I was cracking up!

So, what’s inside?

Gift includes:

* Mask —toxic fume filter for when it doesn’t smell like roses.
* Goggles —for protection against your own mini version of Old Faithful.
* Patent Pending Poop Poncho —need we say more???
* Tongs —Several inches of steel separation between you and the little warm wrapped gift.
* Turkey Baster —for precision hiney washing.
* Ear/Nose Plugs –use with care.
* Pacifier — scream plug.
* Baby Wipes — for cleaning baby bottom and various parts.
* Diaper for newborn — cute as a kitten until it gets wet then it looks and smells like a sewer rat.
* Bio Hazard bag and rubber gloves —for quarantine containment of the nuclear meltdown.
* Emergency Formula Container– doubles as a PeePee cover for WeWe.
* Hand Wipes– to clean up afterward. (For Dad’s use only).
* Picture Frame — this is your badge of honor.
…and Just Arrived!! Patent Pending Poop Ponchos free with purchase!!

All these things in the toolbox can be used for more than just this fun gag gift! You’ve got a nice photo frame for Dad to take with him to work, tongs for your grill, Baster for that thanksgiving turkey,  and ear plugs for those sleepless nights…because even now we have sleepless nights full of crying. We have to thank Chris for putting his ideas into  action and Julie Etzkorn to start Fun Stuff 4 babies.

Well, I know found my new dad to be gift to give to Daddy’s at baby showers! It’s sure to be a hit!

Just for my readers, Use the promo code: el0209 to receive 10% off your purchase of the Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox at http://www.funstuff4babies.com/


I’ll be having where you can win your own Toolbox this week so come and back for a chance to win!

Breezy Bags Review

fivefullbags
I’ve taken the plunge on going green! I cloth diaper my baby, light my home with CFL light bulbs,  I wash my clothes in cold water, line dry when I can, recycle, and I use totes when I go grocery shopping. Now the last thing I mentioned, I used to struggle with. My husband and I purchased totes from a grocery store but they always never ended up going back with us. We’d end up leaving them at home due to naturally forgetting them.  Then something great happened, I learned about Breezy Bags! These bags are not like most grocery store tote bags, these bags fold up and they can fit easily into my purse, diaper bag, pocket, or on my husbands belt loop since they have a nice little clip.

Breezy Bags in Olive Green

I received a pouch of five Olive Green breezy bags to test out. I took them for a spin yesterday while out grocery shopping and let me tell you, these bags did the job! All my groceries for the next few weeks fit into these bags perfectly.  I was taken by surprise that these bags can hold up to 15lbs each! They look so thin and frail but looks can be deceiving! After my grocery shopping trip, I easily folded these bags back up, put them in the pouch and tossed them back in my purse, ready for the next shopping trip!  I don’t think I’ll have a problem having my eco friendly bags on the ready ever again!

These  bags come in a variety of solid colors, they also have were you can add your business logo, which I found pretty neat. You can buy one set of bags for 16.99 or two for 30.00.  It’s really a great deal! We’ll probably end up getting another set so my husband can keep some in the cup holder of his car and I can always keep mine in my purse.

Breezy Bags are solidly stitched out of maximum strength, minimum weight rip stop nylon cloth , to be the most versatile, eco-friendly, green reusable bags and totes imaginable: for all your shopping, storage and toting needs. If these grocery bags get damp, they dry in minutes. They may be machine washed in cold water and hung to dry.

They come with a 1 year limited warranty against defects of material or workmanship, and if you are unhappy with your Breezy Bags for any reason at all, you can contact them within 30 days of your purchase for a full refund.

And if you haven’t taken the green plunge yet, here’s some interesting fact that I’d like share:

In the U.S. we use around 270,000,000 plastic shopping bags in a single day.

One person uses more than 325 plastic shopping bags per year.

A family of four will use more than 1200 per year.

Only 1% of plastic bags get recycled.

700 plastic bags will be used in the life span of one reusable bag.

Paper bags are no better because they use more energy to produce than plastic.

There are over 100,000 marine deaths per year due to plastic bag ingestion.

It takes 1000 years for a single plastic bag to break down in a land fill.

Plastic bags do not biodegrade, they photodegrade. This means they are broken down by light and heat, which causes them to leach harmful toxins into the environment.

So if you are like me and naturally forget your other reusable shopping bags or you want to start thing more GREEN,  get yourself some Breezy Bags today… trust me, you won’t regret it!

Baby Banz Review

100_70401
I am so excited that I was given the opportunity to review Baby Banz! Basically, Baby Banz Inc is a company that offers a complete line of sun protection products to keep both babies and kids protected from head to toe.

I couldn’t have received these sunglasses for my daughter at a better time. I had just swapped out her old car seat with the sun shade with a new one with out a shade. She loved her new car seat but would get quite cranky because when coming back home from our outings, the sun would be directly in her face! Baby Banz was a real help to me as the sunglasses protected my daughter’s eyes from the sun’s harsh rays with its 100% uv protection. They saved me a ride home without a cranky baby!

A few things I like about these glasses are that they fasten with adjustable Velcro around my child’s head so there’s no issue with falling off and I don’t have to worry about my little one pinching her fingers. 100_72041

I love my daughters Pink Diva Camo Baby Banz and from my photos, you can see that my little one loves them too!

There is a limited warranty good for 6 months if they break!

For an added bonus all the frames are BPA and Phthalate free! That way your little one is safe if they start to nibble on them because we just know that’s going to happen.

My daughter can wear her Baby Banz sunglasses up until she is two, then she can graduate to the next sizes which are offered all the way up to age 10! I know it’s going to be hard for me to pick out her next pair because they come in a huge variety of colors!


Some specs from Baby Banz Sunglasses:
•Lenses 100% UVA/ UVB protection
•Durable polycarbonate
baby_banz_logo
•Ophthalmic quality; capable of being replaced with prescription lenses
•Strap: Neoprene elastic band matches chosen color of sunglasses
•Allows for flexibility, breath ability, and comfort

•Side adjustable Velcro® allows for years of wear as the child grows
•Sporty, sleek design

I’m recommending these to anyone who wants to keep their kid safe whether you are at the park, beach, ski slope, or just in the backseat of your car.
