This holiday I have a unique gift idea for girls that are 6 and up. I know sometimes it can be a challenge to find something that your 6 year old would like. When I found about Connects I knew instantly that this product would be a popular one this Christmas and my daughter would love it. My daughter is into the girly stuff this year. She like making her own jewelry and this product can do just that for her. 

What are Connects you may ask they look like C's that have a tiny opening where you can connect them to others to make a link. They come in many different colors. Connects can be used in many different ways. With Connects you can make jewelry, hang on backpacks, decorate rooms and can be used as a toy. This is also a fun way to teach your child patterns, addition, subtraction, division, multiplication and other mathematics equations. 

In our review package we received Pocket Product that has 200 connects, a Tall Pail that has 950 units and we also received already designed bracelet and a couple small packs. 

Overall thoughts of Connects. I personally wish I knew about this product before. They are absolutely fun to play with and make different jewelry with them. My daughter and I spent hours together making different things out of them. I enjoyed spending the quality mom daughter time. They where easy to put together and link without getting frustrated. They stayed together and did not come apart easy which was really nice. The durability over all was amazing. I would definitely recommend this product for stocking stuffers this year.

Super Grip E-Z Grip Play Ball would make a perfect stocking stuffer or toy for your child this Christmas. We received several play balls in our review package that we received this week. I was surprised when there were three small ones and a one bigger one. When I dropped one out of the package my dog Penny went right after it. I know she approves of it already. These play balls are so different from any other type of play ball that I seen in the past. This has a grip where you can actually grip it without slipping an it bounces high. 

The texture of this toy is soft to the touch but tough if that is possible. On the play ball there is a stretchy outer web combined with a durable, inflatable inner ball provides high bounce with a great grip to it. They also come in different colors which is very nice. 

I know I have a 6 and 8 year old who can be rough with toys and their play balls. This one is right up there alley. This play ball is waterproof and can take a lot of rough play. This can be played in the grass, sand and water. It also bounces which is amazing. I know my kids love going to the beach but sometimes we can't bring the balls because they are hard to play with at the beach. This one will bounce and you can actually enjoy play time.

Overall these play balls will last along time. I would say they are durable and great quality. I would highly recommend buying these E-Z Grip Play Balls for your children stocking stuffers this Christmas. You can find their website here Tucker Toy's

This DVD Series just came out a few days and let me tell you my son has been driving me crazy with it. My son is eight years old and everything has to be Star Wars. He is absolutely in love with Star Wars Rebels. When he heard about that we had and opportunity to review a copy of season two he was super excited. Here is a little background about the DVD Series.

Amid growing Imperial oppression on Lothal, the rebels are forced to seek out new allies throughout the galaxy and additional resources to sustain their fight against the Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost bands together with a secret rebel cell and ex-soldiers from the Clone Wars to join a fledgling alliance determined to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy.

As Ezra continues his journey to become a Jedi under Kanan’s guidance, the threat of the dark side looms large over the fate of the growing rebellion. Darth Vader himself will dispatch new Inquisitors to snuff any spark of resistance, setting the stage for a climactic showdown in which past lives will be revealed, terrible truths will be discovered, and the lives of our heroes will be changed forever.

Overall I would give this DVD Series an A Plus. I knew it would be a complete hit in my house because my son is a die hard fan. He watched the first season on Netflix and I knew this season wouldn't be any different. My son did not want to stop watching this series or take any break what so ever from it. He content watching it. He told me in words this series is awesome and he enjoyed it. If you have a Star Wars fan make sure you invest in the new series now!!

Paragon Pet Products has a brought dental chews for dogs to a new fun level. Whimzees Dental Chews comes in a variety of flavors and different colors. You can even find them in different designs. Do not worry these dental chews are edible and made of natural vegetables with no added chemicals, wheat, gluten or meat by products. I know when it comes to my penny I am worried on what product that she may eat. 
I have been looking for a product that will help Penny take care of her teeth. What better way to help her teeth by giving her a fun size treat. These dental chess are digestible and they also help freshen your dog breath and help reduce the plaque build up on your dogs teeth. This fun treat also help clean your dog teeth.

Some benefit to this brand is that they use a re-seable bag which your dog treat will not get stale for your dog. Overall when I gave Penny this treat at first she played with it. She would bring it everywhere for her and than she started to chew on it. She seemed to like each flavor and actually ate the whole thing. I have tried other similar dental chews and she would not have it at all. This brand she seemed t gobble up and enjoy. I would highly recommend this dental chew for you puppy. You can find this product at Whimzees or chewy.com
