#NYBSBLOGGERLOUNGE
Being a parent has been the most rewarding, amazing and absolutely one of the most difficult parts of my life.  There's nothing like having children that will let you know how time is flying by.  One of the good and fun part of parenting is the fun stages your children go through, and the fun items that are out there for you and your child/ren.  It's one of the reasons why I love attending the New York Baby Show each year, there's always something new to check out and it is truly ever-changing.  I was excited to see so many new items out on the market available for parents and those expecting as well.  I've done the difficult task of narrowing down my top picks from the show to three, items that I truly think parents will love.

Who doesn't like swings?!  This Super Duper Spinner is a must-have for all families!  It is absolutely fun for kids but can hold up to 650 lbs, so parents can enjoy being a child too.  The Super Duper Spinner can comfortably sit up to four, I tried with my three kids during a previous event!  As you can see in the picture above, everyone is sitting comfortably, and super happy trying it out.  It is made with durable materials, and the Super Duper Spinner swings are built to withstand the elements.

gift idea for 3 year old
daytodaymoments toy review
I'm a huge fan of Razor scooters, both my older kids started with Razor scooters and graduated to the older kid versions with time.  My youngest just turned 3, and was recently borrowing his sister's old Razor scooter which was pink.  My daughter's first scooter was the Razor Jr Lil' Pop Scooter, a really fun scooter with lights!  My son was so excited and ready for his own scooter, he literally took off with the Razor Jr t3 Scooter right away at the park.  Now everywhere we go, he is on his scooter.  When my children and I go anywhere together, I'm the only one that walks - they scoot!  When I bought my son his first scooter many years ago and realized the quality of Razor scooters, there's no wonder they are known for their scooters.

The Mickey and the Roadster Racers R/C car is more fun than I expected it to be.  It is easy to control for beginners, and rides fast.  It is a fully functioning R/C vehicle with some fun features packed in, including a transformation.  It is based on the show Mickey and the Roadster Racers on Disney Junior, and little fans will love to see it in action.

*Item/s were received for the purpose of review.  All opinions are a 100% my own.  Children's DVDs
I periodically have to restock the car with new DVD's for my kids to watch on one of our long road trips, or days where we have to sit in traffic for too long.  In order to encourage learning through every opportunity of screen time, I try to choose those that have a positive message that is presented in a fun engaging way with tons of educational content.  The latest additions for you to check out to add to your library of DVD's are below with all the episode details. 

You Are Not Responsible for My Child with Food Allergies

I stopped writing about food allergies a long time ago.  Every time I start typing, I honestly feel discouraged.  It feels like everyone has their minds made up and it's not worth speaking up.  But time and time again I've read many stories where food allergic families, mostly those allergic to peanuts show extreme outrage in the wrong way.  There are also so-called studies that come out every once in a while concluding the cause of allergies along with the miracle "fix".  I even heard of companies making a business out of helping you make sure your child doesn't become allergic.  It's all wrong.  It also serves for fuel for comedians time and time again, all with the wrong information.

kids Calculator
The way to get children learning is without them knowing about it.  I've learned as a mom to 3, every child learns differently but one thing they've all had in common is that they learn best through play.  Our newest learning tool that has been fun for all ages is the Singing Machine Wise Ol' Owl Blackboard Calculator.  It's great for learning your numbers, beginner math, and even different languages.  My oldest often checks his work after a math problem and always misplaces his calculator - there's no misplacing the owl.  It looks like a toy, so my two youngest fight for their turn and learn!  It's a large calculator that's the perfect homework helper for young children.

Stress and Anxiety Relief with the TouchPoints Solution

TouchPoints™ are non-invasive lifestyle wear ables that use patent-pending neuro-scientific technology to relieve stress by over 70% in as few as 30 seconds.  When I was first introduced to TouchPoints, I was asked to think of something that troubles me and stresses me out.  I happened to be having a rough day so it was easy for me to go to a tough place in my mind right away, I was almost teary eyed right away because of my thoughts.  Then a representative of the product asked me to hold onto the TouchPoints, and I grabbed them - held them in my hands.  Suddenly, I really did feel better.  I remembered what was on my mind but the knot in my chest disappeared.  I soon found out that the reps weren't reps and that they were actually the founders of The TouchPoint Solution.  It was founded by Neuropsychologist Dr. Amy Serin and executive and child advocate Vicki Mayo.  They had a mission to help those who deal with anxiety and stress.

The Floating Comfort™ Fiberfill Pillow with Customizable Water Base

What stood out to me the most about this pillow is that it has a water base, you actually fill it with water to customize your comfort level.  The feel of the COMBEDLoft Fiber is super soft and inviting, the multilayers work together to bring you proven and tested comfort that you expect from a pillow.  The multilayers it includes is the COMBEDLoft Fiber, thermal insulator that surrounds the water layer, and the exclusive adjustable aqua support pouch that provides responsible support while you sleep.  If you are feeling skeptical the pillow comes with a 60-day satisfaction guarantee or your money back.  Also a 10-year warranty agains manufacturing defects.  Clinical study of the Waterbase pillow has been conducted at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to rate this pillow as one of the best for falling asleep quickly, overall sleep quality, reduction of neck pain and more!

Sands Alive, Play Dirt, and Floof by Play Visions - Fun for All ages - Gift Ideas

These round up of toys from Play Visions are great for all year round play, but greatly appreciated during the cold seasons when kids can't always play outside.  Bring in the Play Dirt so kids don't need to be in their backyard or park to have fun with "dirt".  FLOOF is fun on snow days, sometimes it is too cold and not fun to take kids out to play in the snow, and FLOOF is a great fun alternative.  Wish you were on the beach playing in the sand with your children?  Sands Alive! will help solve that problem.  What is great about all of these items is that it really is hours of fun, relaxing for adults if you do join in with your children, and they are made with a fun formula that makes it easy to clean up after.

Personal Breathalyzer
Something you may never think to own is a breathalyzer, but I actually think everyone should own one.  It should be carried in our cars and bags.  This is the season where many people are driving and partying.  Everyday someone somewhere is getting behind the wheel after having a drink or two, trusting only their judgement - which is not reliable!  The AlcoMate Revo Digital Personal Breathalyzer can save lives.  Don't assume you are okay to drive without testing your BAC.  lf your evening included sipping on cocktails or any alcoholic beverages, now you can check your blood alcohol content (BAC) with AlcoMate Revo before you get on the road behind the wheel.  This most accurate pocket-sized breathalyzer is a must-have.  Consider gifting to family or yourself this year!

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.
