Do your children like bubbles?  Of course, they do, I'm sure you probably do!  Bubbles bring out the child in us all, and it is just plain fun.  Uncle Bubble's bubble products take fun with bubbles to another level.  They take playing with bubbles to a professional level.  You and your children will be able to create bubbles only seen in bubble shows.  I was highly impressed when I saw Uncle Bubbles at BBNYC a few months back, and got the opportunity test out some product with my kids.  We just cannot get enough!  Just a warning..bubbles will never be the same again after you experience the fun with Uncle Bubbles!

Honestly Cute Dolls & Accessories by Jakks Pacific

honestly cute
These are true to their name.  Honestly Cute!  My daughter's first set of dolls and accessories.  She has had plush and other various doll like toys but these are her official dolls, and I'm so happy to see her love it.  I've always loved dolls as a kid, but never looked to get her own since she was more into ponies than dolls.  I guess it is timing, and now that she is getting close to 4 years old, she seems to love it.  She is playing with it in such an adorable nurturing way, all I could do is recommend it to other little ones her age.  I always loved dolls, and forgotten how sweet it is to play house and pretend with them.  The Honestly Cute dolls and accessories by Jakks Pacific are sold exclusively at Target stores.

Healthiest Mouth with Phillips Sonicare 2 Series Plaque Control and Listerine

Last month I joined in on a exclusive Philips webinar hosted by Gabrielle and Chad Rader of GabeBabeTV, the popular Youtube Vlog family, courtesy of Philips Sonicate and Listerine.  They answered some of our questions and shared some of their tips on maximizing the morning routine for school mornings.  They also shared some great benefits of using Philips Sonicate toothbrush, and Listerine Mouth Wash.  Following the webinar, we got the opportunity to try the products ourselves.  The two products combined can save you money in the long run at the dentists office.  Both share so many great benefits.  I found that the Philips Sonicare 2 Series Plaque Control has changed brushing teeth time from a dreaded task to a fun one, for my son.

LOLA - The Therapy Dog and Her Children's Book Series

childrens book lola dog
Ever get something for your children and get surprised by their reaction?  Like you think they'd love it and they don't.  Or you think they won't care too much for something, and they love it?  That happened to me with the Lola - the therapy dog and her books.  I brought the books out, handed her the tiny Lola plush and read her all the stories.  That was half a week ago, and she has slept with Lola every night along with her beloved teddy bear.  I thought the Lola books were cute, but I never thought she'd be so drawn to it.  I've read her the books as she help Lola every day so far.
