Hey Arnold DVD Review (Holiday Gift Guide Review)

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


I remember as a child one of my favorite series was Hey Arnold! I remember watching this series every Saturday morning. I remember Arnold as football kid and having a fun time watching these episodes. I am excited to announce that the Hey Arnold! The Complete Series is available August 19th, 2014 only at 
Wal-Mart.

A little bit about Hey Arnold! The Complete Series:

Your favorite football head and all his pals are here with enough fun and laughs to cover several city blocks! On August 19, 2014, Shout! Factory will release Hey Arnold! The Complete Series, a 16 DVD box set featuring all 99 big city adventures from the classic Nickelodeon animated series. 

Life in the big city is one big adventure for Arnold. Living with his grandparents, who run the Sunset Arms boarding house, Arnold shares a roof with a diverse and unusual menagerie of characters (including his pet pig!). But as any fourth grader knows, some of the most memorable people you'll ever meet are in school. With friends like Arnold's (including storyteller Gerald, class jinx Eugene, sometimes bully Harold, and the tomboy Helga, who harbors a secret crush on our hero), you can be sure that he got some funny exploits to share with fans.

I was excited to be able to share this series with my children. It is fun to watch old cartoons with your children that you watched when you were a child. My children were not sure that they would like Hey Arnold! at first. My son told me that he would not like something I used to like. When we started to watch the series my son said he did not like it at first, but I believe he all talk. He did not want to shut it off and the series kept him intrigued for quite awhile. This series has over 99 adventures so it has a lot of episodes and will keep us busy. I would highly recommend sharing this complete series with your family. I personally love Hey Arnold! and always been a huge fan. 

You can find this complete series at your local Wal-Mart on August 19th.

Are you looking for a unique gift for your children this holiday season? I found a great company that offers unique gifts that are educational for your children. Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 with one mission to improve informal science education by publishing high quality science and technology related educational product for children of all ages. Thames & Kosmos would like to teach children hands on. 

I was able to review their Botany: Experimental Greenhouse. This kit is recommend for children 5 and up. The kit retails for about 39.95. My son loves science and he loves hands on experiences. This project is perfect for young children who love hands on projects and loves science. This kit will help children learn about plants and seeds by conducting experiments in a specially designed botanical laboratory with green house domes. This set is very interesting it reminds me of an actual greenhouse it has thermometers and ventilations for your plants to grow. You can even construct an automatic watering system to keep your plants from getting too thirsty. In this set you are able to grow beans, cress and zinnia flowers.

If your children loves science and interested in plants and flowers than this set is great for the holidays. This was a fun set for my children and easy to put together. My children learned a lot from this set. It taught them how plants grow and what you need to do for your plants to grow successfully. You can find this set and their other education sets at their website below.

Holiday Safety with Safety 1st

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

The holidays are fast approaching which means many families will be traveling, shopping are going to holiday parties. As a mom I am always concerned about my children's safety. Since I have a 4 and 6 year old we are always brining car seats and boosters. As a parent I am always interested in learning about car safety tips so I can prote

ct my children when they are in the car. I wanted to share with you from Safety 1st consumer safety experts on "How to Survive the Holiday with Kids! 

According to AAA last year 94.5 million people were on the roads, trains tracks or the skies during the holiday season. Can you believe that? That is a lot of people. Then think about adding your children in the mix. I know as a parent that give me a headache to even think about it. However, Safety 1st has some tips to help fight some of those headaches this season.

  • Avoid peak travel days- Try to avoid busy days like the night before thanksgiving traffic is always horrible. Try not drive for fly before or right after the actual holiday. Those days will be the absolute busiest days to travel. 
  • Prepare your children for the trip you are taking. When traveling or attending a party it can be overwhelming for younger children. Letting your children know that their is traveling or parties planned will help them prepare for the trip and not become overwhelmed. 
  • Are we there yet is the famous question while traveling. To help avoid that dreaded phrase an hour into six hour trip reserve a bag just for the kids, include books, toys, diapers a change of clothes and snacks. If you have an iPad or smartphone prepare kids friendly apps to help pass the time. Make sure you have wipes, bags and hand sanitizer for accidents. The Safety 1st Car Door Sanitation Station is a great solution.
  •      Car Seats – If you are flying check to make sure your car seat is FAA certified. If it’s not clearly labeled contact the manufacture. For parents with older children the Safety 1stBoostAPack can double as a kid survival kit, it’s FAA certified, and will fit in the plane overhead bin.
With any trip that you take you want to make sure that you properly install your child booster or cast seat correctly. Take an extra few seconds and make sure your child lives will depend on it. If it has been awhile you visited a car seat check, it's recommended to check your seat with a Certified Child Safety Technician in advance of your trip.
