Hello Kitty, Hello Spring! and Hello Summer! are a couple of the latest titles set to be released by Abrams books this March! These colorful 14 page hardcover books are loved by both my children ages 4 1/2 and 2, though the books totally keep the attention of my younger one the most.
In Hello Kitty, Hello Spring!, readers are greeted by Hello Kitty surrounded by beautiful spring flowers( no doubt brought on from the April rains). Each of the pages feature Hello Kitty and her friends in a different Spring time scenes enjoying everything wonderful that comes with the season saying Hello to the following things: flowers, butterflies, baseball, picnics and visits at the park, rainy day puddle fun, and flying high those very colorful and unique types of kites!
My two year old loves looking at the pages in the book. The pages are all so colorful and very appealing to children! I sometimes read the book through once and then we go through a second time and talk about what we see happening in the pictures whether it’s about the activity or the colors of the surrounding insects, flowers, and much more. I highly recommend this book as it’s perfect to welcome in the upcoming spring season!
In Hello Kitty, Hello Summer!, readers will enjoy original illustrations of Hello Kitty and her friends having fun in the sun with a small bit of text added to each scene page spread. In this book Hello Kitty visits the beach, enjoys a bike ride, has an ice cream party with friends, sails a boat at sea, plays a bit of tennis, and more! Most things if not everything to love about Summer is covered in this fun colorful title. My kids totally love the page spread of Hello Kitty and her friends having an ice cream party and decided that we need do that as well as soon as the season arrives.
These titles are the first two of four in the newest series of Hello Kitty collectible board books. After seeing how much my kids enjoyed these, I’m pretty excited to get a hold of Hello Autumn and Hello Winter when they comes out! And with Spring and Summer right around the corner, these would make a great gift to the littles ones in your life! Think Easter bag surprises too!

Teaching children about colors can be fun with the Smart Snacks Peek-a-Boo Color Muffins from Learning Resources! This particular set has been great fun to use with my four and 1/2 year old daughter and my nearly two year old son. The possibilities of ways to incorporate different concepts and aspects in educating my children have been endless thanks to this well thought out kid appealing product.
The Smart Snacks Peek-a-Boo Color Muffin set comes with 5 durable plastic 3-piece muffins that store in handy rotating stand which messures 4.5″H x 7″ in diameter. The colors of the muffin bottoms covered in this set are red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. Inside each muffin is a piece of fruit that matches the color of the corresponding muffin liner bottom, for example there are red cherries, a yellow slice lemon, blue blueberries, and so on. You can mix and match them however you so choose.
The set is fantastic is helping reinforce color recognition! Children can play with this set in many ways. They can match the fruit filling to the colored cups. You could also let your children use the set when playing in their toy kitchens pr hosting pretend tea parties. For younger children, they might even enjoy a game of peek-a-boo. The muffin lids can be put on and taken off easily and that’s much appreciated for little ones that can sometimes get discouraged or upset if having a problem attaching or detaching lids or parts of any kind.
My son is turning two years old in a couple of weeks and I’ve been using this set with him daily. I’m pretty sure my son is starting to understand his colors a bit better just from our time spent with this. Sometimes I’ll ask him to find other things around the house that are blue and he’ll bring them to me.
My daughter whom is four already knows all her colors. She likes playing with this set when hosting her pretend tea and dessert parties. I can vouch with the use and play from both of my children, this set has held up exceptionally well. We’ve managed not to misplace anything in the set either. The muffins lids that snap to the bottoms and the stand has seen to that. These features are absolutely essential to any set making it great for storing when not in play.
Overall, I highly recommend Learning Resources Smart Snacks Peek-a-Boo Color Muffins! It’s great for color recognition, pretend play, and whatever else you can think up in having fun or teaching a child.

I’m excited to let you know that just recently MommyParties and Oral-B gave me the opportunity to share some fantastic products with my own family, extended family, and other moms that I know with younger children through a Winnie the Pooh DVD viewing party for the kids.
I was thrilled to be picked as a host. I am all about spreading the news about products that can benefit needs in our day to day life. The products that I was sent that every mom was able to take home and keep for their kids in my pre-made gift party bags included Oral-B stage 1&2 brushes, Oral-B Toothpaste ( themed for both girls and boys), Disney Lavender body wash, an information pamphlet all about Oral-B Stages products, and very much appreciated coupons!
My own daughter which is three years old was pretty excited and couldn’t wait to brush her teeth with her new tooth paste! I heard the same from the other mothers as well following up after our celebration! It really helps that Oral-B teamed up with Disney to feature well loved characters kids have grown to love.
My son is 11 months old and we’ve been getting him into the routine of brushing his teeth. He’s got six teeth currently with two more on the way! I honestly can’t believe he got so many teeth so quickly! No worries though, Oral-B makes choosing the right dental hygiene products for me and other mothers so easy with their Stages products.
Oral-B currently has three stages. The first is for 4-24 month old babies. These brushes have non-slip handles, help protect tender gums, fits babies’ small mouths, and makes brushing fun with Disney Baby characters. I’m pleased to say my son is getting pretty good holding and brushing the toothbrush all on his own pretty well! The second stage of products are for 2-4 year olds and the third for 5-7 year old children. Each stage is a little different than the previous completely covering everything needed as children grow older.
A lot of information was given out in my party bags but I also wanted to point out that there’s a really handy guide about dental care on the Oral-B website for anyone else interested in the Oral-B products if you already aren’t a fan!
Overall I got a fantastic response from both the kids and their parents about the great products by Oral-B. And with all the great benefits, it’s no wonder that Oral-B is #1 dentist recommended toothbrush brand for kids.
