Hero Clean Detergent & Home Cleaning Products

You ask a parent what is one thing they do the most of?  One of the top answers will be cleaning and laundry.  I do plenty of my children's laundry, but right up there is an endless amount of laundry piles from my husband.  A while back I was introduced to Hero Clean, they make laundry and home cleaning products that help fight stains, messes, and odors associated with men's sweat.  It has been "formulated specifically, scientifically and aesthetically" to handle it all.  Of course it was originally formulated for men, but I think it has grown to be a product everyone can use and love.  I really enjoy using the detergent on my husbands clothes, it leaves a great scent that he loves.  You can check out their products, and buy a kit that includes Dish + Hand Soap, All Purpose Cleaner, and Odor Eliminator.  Their products have a unique scent, which has Juniper; which is the main ingredient in Gin.

Slime Flat Tire Repair Kit - No Jack or Tools Needed!

gift idea for car ownder
The Slime Flat Tire Repair Kit is something I hope I never need, but am happy to have in my car.  I just started driving this past summer so imagining a flat tire, a spare tire and all that it entails is absolutely terrifying to me.  I believe it isn't something someone thinks about too often, or is ever excited about.  The Slime Next Generation Tire Repair Kit makes it easy to fix a flat tire on your own without waiting in the car, say with kids for hours.  It gets you ready to move on and off the dangerous roads fast.  I've learned that it's the safest, simplest solution to a flat tire.  There are four steps to follow, and it requires no tools, or a jack.  It is important to be prepared for the unexpected at all times, this would make a great gift idea that is truly useful!

KAOS Pump Station & Bubble Blitz Blaster #unexpectedgift #giftideas

summer toys
bubble blaster toy
It's been so cold out but there's nothing like going out and still enjoying summer toys in the warmer days of fall and winter.  Of course it depends on how cold it is outside and what kind of toy we are talking about.  At the end of the summer days I was sent a KAOS Pump Station with Color Bombs, and a Bubble Blitz Flash Blaster.  I thought about waiting until we are closer to summer days to share with you all, but I don't know the forecast where you are and if you also enjoy playing with all sorts of items hot or cold out.  It's also never a bad time to start getting ideas for summer fun.  Even though this might catch you off guard in the middle of gift ideas and stocking stuffers, these actually do make a super fun gift idea during the holiday season!  I have 3 kids and they seem to think so!

Little Miss Matched Socks!
Fun fact is that my children and I love getting socks and underwear in our stockings each year.  They have an aunt who actually wraps a few undergarments for them, and my children have learned to appreciate it.  We appreciate it as it's something that's useful, but want to make it more fun for everyone?  The Mismatch socks are going to please even those that don't usually like receiving socks, as they are super special!  The Vintage Socks by Little Miss Matched are super fun and available in sizes for children and adults!  They are available in knee-high, ankle, and linear socks.  The packs come with 3 single socks that don't match!  My daughter loves to mismatch her socks, and these are perfect.

Relief mart Snuggle-Pedic Pillow

daytodayMOMents toy review
Giant Jenga reviewI have had so much fun with my family playing with the out of this world Jenga Giant JS7.  If you aren't familiar with Jenga, it is a game where players take turns removing one block at a time from the tall tower, replacing at the top of the tower.  As the game progresses the tower gets taller, unstable, and the player that makes the tower tumble loses.  It requires a bit of luck, lots of fun strategy, and in the end it's a fun physical game where everyone will enjoy themselves.  What makes the Jenga Giant JS7 so special is that it is truly giant! Instead of the classic game that fits on a table, this is meant to be played on the ground with the players standing around it.  Great for ages 12 and up, but children younger can play with guidance.

Zinc Flyte - Children's Scooter & Luggage-in-1
Zinc Flyte - a suitcase, and a scooter in one!  It's kind of a dream come true for children and parents alike.  My children all love the scooter and luggage in one.  It is the perfect size for my 2 year old, and he has been giving it a real test by riding on it every chance he gets.  My daughter (4) loves being able to put her favorite teddy bear, toys, and more on the go without carrying it.  We take lots of walks around our neighborhood, the park, as well as day trips around the city.  We've taken it on many of our weekly trips and have been loving it.  I am imagining it to be amazing at the airport as it is airline approved!
