Kids Academy Review

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 know as a parents I am always looking for new apps for my iPad for my children. Since school is out I like to have apps on my iPad so my son can refresh on what he learned in school so he is prepared for next year.

I have found several great apps for my son and my daughter to use over the summer. Kids Academy offers a variety of different apps that are educational that will help children brush up on their letter, numbers, reading and ect.

The first app that I was able to review was their Kids Academy Reading and Writing. My son is 6 years old and he has having a hard time with reading and this app is fun for him and helps him brush up on reading and writing. This app has has several different activities such as mazes, rhyming words, uppercase lesson, lowercase letters, short vowels, long vowels, and writing words. My son usually does not want to sit down and learn about vowels, letters, rhyming words and ect. This app helps make it fun and new where he will spend hours playing with this app. The great benefit is that he is learning from this app and having fun. 

The next app I was able to try their free version app preschool kids games kid puzzles and I was quite impressed. My daughter and son were able to try this app. Although my daughter like the app a little more than my son because he already new the basics that his app provided. Although it was a good summer refresher for him. My daughter loved the app and zipped through it. Her numbers are getting better and her hand and eye coordination. She is starting to get a feel of how to write the numbers and starting to understand her abcs. I would recommend Kid Academy apps for your children and they do help kids get an understand of numbers and abcs. This would be a great app to use during the summer to help your children prepare for preschool and kindergarten. You can find these apps on iTunes.
The last app that we got to try was the kids tracing numbers app. Children will be able to trace numbers on your iPad. 123 tracing is action packed app that help kids learn their numbers while engaging the game. My daughter really seemed to like this specific app. She spent hours playing this app. Overall my children love Kids Academy apps. You can find all these app on the app store.

Sterling Global Products Review

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.

As a mom of two messy children I always like to be prepared. When it comes to bathroom time I always like to be prepared. I always leave wipes in the bathroom for my children just in case they need them. I came across a wonderful site that provides wipes in a convenient container. 

Sterling Global Products started out in New Orleans by a contractor. When he was sitting in his car making a phone call he noticed one of his subcontractors carrying a container of baby wipes. I know what your thinking it is odd to notice a man carrying a container of baby wipes. He was curious why his subcontractor  was carrying wipe, but he did not want to pry. It came clear to him why his subcontractor was using the wipes. Who wanted to be dirty at the site? That is why he carried the wipes with him. In 2008 a ad for flushable wipes caught his eye. Flushable wipes were just hitting the market in that time and he wanted to figure everything out about them. His goal was to make a brand of flushable wipes that we would put his name on them.

What I like about this brand is that they carry different theme wipe containers. I received three different containers for review. We received Bob's butt wipes which are masculine container. They look like woodsy containers. Then their is a kids adventure wipes container with kid designs on them. They also make Boude which is a feminine wipe container. I really like these wipe containers because they are portable if you choose to travel. They also fit around your toilet paper dispenser so they are handy. Which is great because my children have easy access to them. This pack comes with a container and 42 flushable wipes. They are alcohol free so they will not irrigate your skin.

As a mom I would highly recommend these wipe to have handy in your home. They are perfect for your children when they use the bathroom. I also love how the container will attach to the toilet paper dispenser so they will not get waisted or lost in your bathroom. You can find their products at their website below.

Green Virgin Products Review

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.

When it comes to laundry it seems like it never ending. That is what happens when you have a two and six year old at home. They seem like they go through several outfits a day. When it comes to laundry detergent I have to be careful on which detergent I choose. My daughter tends to break out on certain detergents. 

I was excited when Green Virgin Products offered Emmy's Deals to review their Green Virgin Products Soap Nuts Liquid. This product comes in a 8 fluid ounce bottle. With this 8 fluid ounce bottle it will give you about 120 HE wash loads.

The soap nuts that they use for this product are made from fruit of the Chinese Soap Berry Tree. These berries are harvested and then dried in the sun. What is great about this detergent is that there is no chemicals of any kind. Green Virgin Products only sell Sapindus Mukorossi soap nuts as this is the species that are the largest and have the highest saponin content of any other species. 

What I find interesting about this product is that the shell of the soap nut contains a natural soap call saponin. Which makes the cleaning abilities equal to other soaps that are out there. I also like how this specific product is hypo allergenic, so we can use this detergent for my daughter and not have to worry. 

The interesting part is how they make the soap into liquid. That is simple they extract the saponin using only water. They remove all the solids and tannins and deodorize it. How this is done is by using high tech filters using no chemicals and only water. By doing this process this is how their company stands out.

This product is so easy to use. When I took my soap our of the package it had a normal cap on it. It also came with a pumper inside the box also. It tells you on the label on how much soap you dispense. It depends on the load and how dirty the clothes are. The recommendation is 2-3 pumps per load.

When I used this product I was quite impressed with the end results. My daughters clothes were nice and soft. I didn't have to add any softener sheets when I dried my clothes. I would definitely recommend using this product and would buy it in the near future. It also will last you a quite awhile also which is great benefit.

Little Helpers in Life is hosting a giveaway Dream Eyes. 


I have a very "desired" eye color. I also have always wanted to be able to change my eye color, for just a day every once in a while. I have looked into colored contacts in the past, and didn't think it was worth the price. 

So, when I found Dream Eyes I was so happy to see a fair price. And more colors and designs then I knew what to do with. I chose to try out the Hulk contacts, just to have a little fun. I thought these were great. I think they would work well for Halloween. 



I also chose the natural violet for a more every day look. With these ranging from 26.00 to 30.00 dollars it is a much better price then what you usually see in stores. I also thought it was great on how fast they were shipped to my house. Within just a few days, I had my product. Which is great! 

If you are looking for a change in your every day eye color. A Halloween change. A change for the club. They have everything that you need at Dream Eyes. Even down to contacts that will glow in UV or Black light. It is amazing the possibilities.

Back to School Giveaway


Read Messy Mama's entire REVIEW:







The Go Green Lunch Box only costs $34.99. That might seem a little steep for a lunch box, at least it did to me at first. However, when you add up what you spend in one year on lunch boxes and packing materials, it's either the same or less. Then, this is high quality. It will more than likely last more year. I can't actually state that it does since I haven't actually had it for a school year, but I'd be willing to bet that if you check with me in August 2015 we will be using this exact Go Green Lunch Box again. Plus, if something does go wrong with it, they sell replacement parts right down to the cap for the water bottle.






One lucky reader will win a Go Green Lunch Box!

Good Luck - winner must be a resident of the Continental U.S.A. and 18+.

Little Helpers in Life is Hosting a PB Crave Giveaway

Peanut Butter is a huge ordeal in our house. My husband, my son, and I all love peanut butter. But we all prefer different kinds of peanut butter. My husband likes chunky. I am more of a creamy gal myself. And Jason.. Well Jason just likes the messiest kind. 

When I found PB Crave, I was so excited to be able to try it. We have peanut butter on toast in the morning. And though my son loves jelly, I like him not to make a huge mess. Especially on days we are in a hurry. 


Pb Crave comes in four different flavors: 
  • Coco Bananas
  • Razzle Dazzle
  • Cookie Nookie
  • Choco Choco
Now, for you peanut butter enthusiast. I know you are getting super excited. You want to know, does it taste good? Are you kidding! All the flavors taste great. And in my house, we each had our favorites! 

Coco Bananas, which actually my mom was over. She loved this! It taste to my like a banana candy in peanut butter. The flavors mix so well together. Are you a peanut butter and banana sandwich lover? If so, this is the peanut butter for you! It also has a hint of coco and wild honey. Which makes this the perfect mix. 

Razzle Dazzle was my personal winner! I love raspberries. Love them. So when I opened this and tried a spoonful, I was in shock on how tasty this actually is. It does also have a touch of wild honey, as well as white chocolate chips. 


Cookie Nookie is my sons favorite. He would eat the whole jar if he was allowed. I have found that a little bit of this spread on crackers or toast is a perfect snack for him. It is cookie dough flavored, mixed with a bit of honey. It also has chocolate chips in it. 


Choco Choco was my husbands personal favorite. It has both sweet and dark chocolate chips in it. Which is great for the chocolate lover in your life. It also has a bit of wild honey in it.

Soothie Suckers Review

Summer time is coming to an end and Fall and Winter are creeping in. That mean cold and flu season coming up. When you have young children and they get sick I know as a mom I hate seeing that. Another thing that I don't like is there is not a whole bunch of option what you can give your children to make them feel better. 

I was excited when I came across Soothie Suckers. Soothie Suckers provides safe, convent options for the millions of consumers demanding natural solutions.  What I like about Soothie Suckers is that they come in two flavors grape and orange. They also come in pre-measured 1 oz packages. 

Grape_Nasal_pkg_frontThe first package that we received was Soothie Suckers Nasal Support. The Nasal Support Soothie Suckers come in the grape flavor. They use several herbs in their Soothie Support Nasal Support. They use Echinacea which is known for its immune enhancing ability. The other herb that is in this product is Pleurisy Root is known to be used in North America for more than a thousand years, pleurisy is a root most popularly used during the winter season. 

Orange_Immune_pkg_frontThe next Soothie Sucker that we received was Immune Support in orange flavor. My daughter really liked this flavor and it was a hit with her. In this Soothie Pop it contains Astragalus Root is one of the 50 fundamental herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine. This root is known to be used to strengthen the immune system and boost metabolism. Mullein is a valued herb used by the Greek Dioscorides over 1800 years ago. They also use Thyme in this Soothie Sucker also. 

My overall thoughts about this product is that it perfect for young children and even adults throughout the year. Each package comes with 8 pops in each package. I know that my children absolutely love these pop and they are perfect for them. You can find these Soothie Pops at their website below.
