On September 9th Doc McStuffins came out with another fantastic DVD. My daughter was very excited to hear that Doc McStuffins: School of Medicine is coming out on DVD. My daughter is a huge fan of Doc McStuffins and her DVD's play often in our house hold. 

Synopsis:
In "Doc McStuffins: School of Medicine,” a compilation of engaging Doc McStuffins stories, the many specialties in which doctors practice medicine and health care are highlighted for young kids to comprehend.  In her playhouse clinic, Doc is an optometrist, helping her stuffed owl toy, Professor Hoostburgh, to see clearly again.  As a dentist, she fixes a tooth on Donny’s toy shark Mr. Chomp and, as a radiologist, Doc takes an inside look at Daisy’s arm after a Roller Disco fall.  Then, Doc accidentally sprains her own ankle, so it’s up to her toys to provide the care and compassion to Doc herself and with rest,  patience and plenty of cuddles, she will be as good as new, singing  “The Doc is in.”

Overall thoughts:

Of course this DVD is going to be a huge hit in our household because my daughter is a huge fan! My daughter was also excited when she found out that this DVD includes a FREE Exclusive Doc McStuffins Dress Up Playset! She had a lot of fun playing with that. My daughter loved The School of Medicine DVD, while she was watching the DVD she took out her doctor set. I also liked how the DVD went over medicine and health care are highlighted. If your daughter or son are fans of Doc McStuffins you will not be disappointed in this DVD. It is a family friendly film that is great for kids.

Car Seat Safety Tips


By the experts at Safety 1st

Importance of Rear Facing
In March of 2011 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updated their car seat recommendations advising that children should remain rear facing until the age of two.  According to a study in the Journal of Injury Prevention children under the age of two are 75% less likely to die or be severely injured in the event of a car crash if they are rear facing. When a child is rear facing their head, neck and spine are better supported and in the event of an accident, crash forces are distributed over the child’s entire body.

Location
Typically the center rear seat is the safest place for a car seat, and never install a car seat in the front seat.  If your car does not have a latch connector for the middle seat, you can use the middle seat belt to properly secure the base.  When installing, make sure the base of the car seat moves no more than an inch from side to side. An easy way to test this is to hold at the belt path.

Car Seat Expiration
Car seats do have an expiration date, it is recommended that car seats be replaced every 5-8 years, or immediately after a crash.  The reason for an expiration date is because plastic can warp and materials can fray, which can make car seats not as effective in the event of a crash.  Additionally car seat technology and state and federal car seat regulations change over time.  Important warning labels may wear out and instruction books may get lost, which can lead to improper use of the car seat.

Safeguard the Car
Childproof the inside of the car and eliminate projectiles.  Anything in the car that is not secured is a possible projectile – even a child’s toy, or a water bottle. In a crash, objects take on greater weight due to crash forces.

Toilet Tree Product 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 never really care about my skin much until after I had my daughter. My skin has always look great to me until after I had my daughter. Now I have been trying to find product that will help my skin and help it make my skin look batter. I have heard a lot of complements on ToiletTree Products. ToiletTree Product carries a Professional Skin Care System that looked interesting to me. I was quite not sure if it was for me or would it irritate my skin. I was excited though when I found out I was able to review the Professional Skin Care System. I had the choice to choose Pink, White or Bule. Out of the three choices I decided that I was going to choose the color pink.

One think that I noticed with shipping that it arrived fast in my opinion which is a good thing. When I took this out of the box I was quite intrigued with the options that his product does. I could not wait to try this product to see if it would really help and make my skin look healthier. The Professional Skin Care System helps stimulate your skin and help renew it and help remove the dead skin cells to expose healthier skin on your face. I want my skin to look the best it can be since I will be finishing college and starting a new career. I want my skin to look healthy and nice when I start my new job. Professional Skin Care System is going to help me get to that step. I like how the Professional Skin Care System offer several attachments for different types of care, such as body brush, face brush soft and medium and pumice stone. These are interchangeable rotating heads so they are very easy to change. I first tried the body brush and let me tell you I really liked the body brush. After using the body brush my skin felt great. My skin felt great and started looking great after a couple usages of the body brush. Then I tried the face brush's the medium and the soft. I would have to favor the soft brush more due to my face being sensitive and can get irritated easily. My face has felt smooth and less breakout which I found amazing. My face has not looked this good in awhile.  Lets not get on the subject on my feet. They where terrible before I used the pumice stone. I did not think that this would help my feet at all because my feet are beyond horrible.  After trying this product on my feet several time. I seen a huge difference and my feet do not feel rough like they used to. I was highly impressed.

After reviewing the Professional Skin Care System I would highly recommend it. There are many benefits to it. The number one benefit to the Professional Skin Care System is that it made myself feel better. So if I feel better about myself that this product is great. If you are trying to have better skin I would highly recommend looking into this product. You can find their information at

Beatrix Girl Review ( holiday gift guide)

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.

Are looking to find something special for your little girl this year for the holidays? Do you have little girls that love music? Than I would recommend the Beatrix Girls for your little girl for Christmas. Who are the Beatrix Girls you may ask? The Beatrix Girls are an accomplished pop band with real music that girls are sure to adore. There are four different dolls and they are Lark, Ainsley, Brayden and Chantel. Each girl sings and plays and instrument and they even write their own songs.

I was excited when we were given the opportunity to review one of the dolls. We were able to review Ainsley. Ainsley is the girl on the drums. I was impressed when our doll arrived in the mail. I was surprised on how big Ainsley was. I imagined them to be smaller than they are. This doll is perfect sized for my daughter. When she saw Ainsley my daughter was super excited and wanted to play with her right away. When it comes to dolls I want to make sure they are decent quality and durable. I am one of those moms that worry that a piece will break off and either hurt my daughter or it may get swallowed. Ainsley is a durable top notch doll for your child. I also like how Ainsley is dress modest also. 

Overall I am impressed with the quality and the message that the Beatrix Girls sends. These girls are following their dreams and encouraging girls to follow their dreams. I also like how these dolls are spunky and different from the other dolls that you find at the stores. This would be a great Christmas gift for you little girl.
