Story Time Fun Felts Review and Giveaway

can-do-toddler-felt

Recently, I was given an opportunity to review  the “Can Do Activity Book” from the company Fun Felt. I was sent this book assembled though you can purchase it pre-assembled.

I enjoyed flipping through this book last night with my 13 month old.  Throughout the eight boldly colored  pages you’ll find numerous activities to take part in.  The various scenes you’ll find in this book are;  a telephone, kitchen, farm, circus theme, toy room and a neighborhood. When we got to the kitchen page my daughter kept saying Mmmm and Yum-Yum. She also really enjoyed playing peekaboo with the baby chickens on one of the pages. She literally clapped every time the chicks came out from hiding!

This book is one of my new favorite mommy and daughter activities for the day. I can teach my daughter so many things from this book alone like lessons on getting dressed, numbers, and more! I can see myself as my daughter grows older telling her stories with the many felt objects that come with this book and I can also see my daughter telling me her own stories! This book opens world of imagination for both child and parent!

I must mention the fact that I love that this isn’t a noisy toy and that it promises to last for a good long time with it’s superb quality of felt. It’ll be great to pass this on to each of my children, and possibly even my own grandchildren one day.

Story Time Felts offers the finest in felt board stories and visual aids for learning and open ended play.  I recommend them 100% and I’ll let you know that in future, I’ll be purchasing some of the other great products that they offer. They have a very wide selection from dolls, stories, job charts, educational pieces, math games, nursery rhymes, and more! These are great for Sunday school, any public or home school classroom, libraries,  home use, and more…you name it!

Cover Your Hair Review

When it comes to accessorizing, I’m immediately drawn to search for head ware first. Not only do they add that special pizzaz, they are a perfect solution to any bad hair day! I live in Oregon where it rains a lot and when it’s rainy my hair is often more full and this makes it sometimes hard to control. Headware is the perfect solution to complement and complete any outfit as well.

I was thrilled when through Facebook, I learned about Cover You Hair.com!  I checked out their site and then immediantly became a fan! You can find all sorts of accessories for your hair in variety of colors and styles! From Snoods, Bandannas, Hats, Berets, Hairbands, Headbands, Tichels, Hair scarf , headwraps, and more!

Their mission is to  provide low cost hair covering products to their consumers. Along the way, they’ve have blazed new trails in Jewish fashion. As a recognized industry leader,  they pride themselves in servicing each and every order as if it were their very first!

I was sent the All Around Wide Pre Tied Headband in hot pink, Paisley Wide Pre Tied Headband in light blue, and a very stylish purple head band with tail!

I had never worn a head band with a tail before, and I never knew what I was missing out on before! I found that it was very easy to tie with minimal effort. I love these because of the versatility, they come in many types of fabrics, prints, and legnths.

The pretied headbands are also very nice because, they stay securely in place and I found that they are much easier to wear than the traditional tie-up bandanas. These work great for short hair or long, hair up or hair down!  Overall, I love all of the headbands  I recieved from their site and plan on getting more!

Sleepy Heads

I’m naturally cold, so during the fall and winter months I’m usually bundled up more than the normal person and trying to stay as warm as much as I possibly can. Because of this, I’m always on the look out for a good set of flannel pajamas.

I happened across Sleepy Heads the other day and I want to say first that I am quite impressed with their huge selection of sleepwear for both summer and winter months. They have great selections for men, woman, and even the kids!  (I’m a huge fan of their Hello Kitty lounge wear!)

This company was kind enough to send me my very own set of pajamas to review!  I was sent the THINK PINK flannel pajamas. These pj’s are incredibly cute in style and in pattern, as they are decorated with roses, pink ribbons, and the word Think Pink on them. These pajamas are of great quality, very soft, and thick compared to my other pj’s! I can’t wait to start wearing these this winter. Oh, and another nice thing to know is that with each sell of the the Think Pink pj’s, 10% is being donated to breast cancer research.

I can only imagine how cute these pj’s would be at a slumber party, or out shopping ( I’m not so bold). My husband even commented that he liked some of the items over at Sleepy Heads for men! Just a note that these would make wonderful Father’s Day gifts or any other time 😉

Sleepy Head offers more than just sleepwear, you can find candles, shoes, bags, aprons, and more!

Silver Dolphin Books Review & Giveaway

I indulge in the opportunity to read wonderful books. So, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I learn about new places to purchase great books for me and for my children. I nearly jumped with joy when I learned about Silver Dolphin Books.

They are worth the look see, hands down. Silver Dolphin Books publishes activity, novelty, and educational nonfiction books for preschoolers to 12-year-olds.  Silver Dolphin Books is an award winning company. Several of their books have won the Parent’s Choice awards. (You can click here to see the extensive list)

Out of Silver Dolphin’s generosity, we were able to review the Nursery Rhymes (A Nursery Collection Book) by Susie Lacome & Beth Harwood and the book Amazing Baby Go, Baby, Go! by Beth Harwood, Emma Dodd, Jonathan Lambert.

The Amazing Baby Go, Baby, Go book comes from their popular Amazing Baby series. This series has 28 titles to date its one of the largest series by Silver Dolphin for babies. My daughter enjoyed me reading this  book to her. She smiled and giggled back at the brightly colored graphics and baby pictures in the book with each turning page. I as mommy loved that this book is an indestructible board book with makes it safe for reading time if I want to let her browse through the pages alone.  I like also that this book is not to wordy, I’ve other baby books and my daughter loses interest quickly because I’m not turning the page quick enough when trying to read through.  What makes this book fun is that at the end, there is a heart shaped photo frame where you can insert your very own picture of your Amazing Baby!

The Nursery Collection book, I can see myself pulling off the shelf for years and years to come. This book is beautifully illustrated with it’s soft pastel colored embossed pages and images. One added decorative feature I like is the ribbon tie that you can make into a bow to close the book. This book is filled with well loved nursery rhymes, fairy tales, and lullabies that we all grew up with. When reading through, I couldn’t help but remember when my mom read to me out of our own family nursery rhyme book. I’d been looking for a nursery rhyme book to add to my home library and now my search is over because this is in my mind the perfect in every way I can imagine.

Other books I’d love to add to my collection are various titles from the Wonders Inside, History in Action, and the Fine Art Studio Series!  I’d really love to own all of the books they offer, I have to remind myself that money doesn’t grow on trees though all of their books are reasonably priced!
