Smart Planet Review (holiday gift guide)

Image
During the holidays it seem like there is not enough hours in the day. It seems like I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it seems like I am always cleaning up and washing dishes. Especially during the holiday season. I was very excited when I came across Smart Planet product collapsible eco salad bowl.
I will have to admit I come across many new products, but I have never come to a product quite like this before. This is a product of my dreams. I also like how Smart Plant is an internationally reowned source of innovative and eco friendly.
The product that I received for review their collapsible eco salad bowl. This salad bowl contains a silicone base. Which makes it microwave and dishwasher safe. Which is a must in our household. I usually stay away from products that are not microwave or dishwasher safe. It come with a topping tray, dressing container and reusable spork that you will find in side. I love how all these items fit inside of the main bowl. Easy storage which is great…

Hammacher Schlemer Review

Hammacher Schlemer is one of my favorite companies. When I entered the site online it was very class and easy to navigate through. When I entered their site I noticed a saying underneath there name it said "Offering the Best, The Only, and The Unexpected since 1848. At first when I read that I thought to my self I doubt that. This was before I looked through the site and delt with the company. Boy was I wrong They have so many different products. I could not believe how many items that I never seen before. There where more items that I was not familiar with than I was familiar with. Which shocked me. They have a great variety of products and have something for everyone.

Before i start sharing what I got to review from this wonderful company.

Sister Gourmet Review

Image
Are you looking for something unique for Christmas? Do you loving baking or someone in your family love baking? You should check out Sister's Gourmet. They are a great company that puts that special touch to gourmet baking mixes. Great idea for the holiday season.
I received two of their Gourmet Baking Mixes for review. I received double chocolate oatmeal cookie mix and cinnamon snowflake cookie mix. When I received Sister Gourmet I was impressed how they where packed. They where very well packed and kept safe through shipping. After unwrapping I was impressed on how cute they looked. When it comes to the holidays I do not know about you, but I am always running out of time. With Sister's Gourmet cooking mixes they have all the dry ingredients all ready for you in a mason jar.
Both jars had all the ingredients except for eggs, real butter and vanilla. I had to get those out for the recipe. Which is not bad at all. Sister's Gourmet commitment to you is that they offer you th…

BeginAgain Toys Review

Image
I was introduced to a wonderful toy company called BeginAgain Toys. BeginAgain Toys great company which their toys create imagination and creativity. One great thing that I love about toys is that they do not require batteries. BeginAgain Toys was created in Fort Collins, Colorado by Benjamin Barlowe. The inspiration came from his grandchildren. 


When we were browsing on BeginAgain Toys we were amazed on the creativity of each toy. We chose to review Dinosaur A to Z puzzle. The reason why I choose this product is that my children love learning their ABC an also figuring out puzzles. When I saw this product I thought this would be a great educational toy in helping children learning their ABC. It also helped that my children love Dinosaurs also. This Puzzle retails for $32.00. When we received the puzzle it was packaged with great care. It also came in a wood box to keep the puzzle safe. This puzzles is 26 pieces and the puzzles is a Stegosaurus.

Mini 4 Wheel Carving Scooter Review

Image
Are you looking for the perfect scooter for your child for Christmas? Well I happy to tell you that Fuzion has a great selection of scooters. I was able to review their Mini 4 Wheel Carving Scooter for my Holiday Gift Guide this year. We had one excited boy when we opened up the box. We received a Mini 4 Wheel Carving Scooter that is recommended for ages 6 and up. When we took it out of the box it was very easy to assemble. If I can do it anyone can do it. The frame of the scooter is made out of steel. The product weighs about 8.8 ibs. There is a weight limit for this product and that is 130 pounds. When we put this product all together my son was eager to test it out. 
The one thing that I noticed that my son struggled a little bit with the scooter, because there was four wheels. It took a little bit of time to get used to the scooter, but he did. In my personal opinion I would have a kid who has some basic knowledge of a scooter to ride on this product. The benefit of having a lightwe…

Image
Are you looking for something amazing to get you child for Christmas? WowWee introduces their newest product RoboMe. RoboMe is the perfect holiday gift for tech and robotic fans. RoboMe can be used my children and adults. RoboMe was created to blend personality and technology together at last. RoboMe is a completely customization robotic buddy that uses the power of your iPhone. When I received my RoboMe I was totally blown away. When I saw the RoboMe online I thought it was pretty cool, but I did not expect it to be like this. I thought it would be a lot smaller than it is. It pretty decent size. A lot bigger that what I originally thought. RoboMe does require a iPhone product to operate. You will need to download the app, after is all set up on your phone place it where the head of the robot is. There is a special location where it will fit your phone and protect it from getting damaged. One of my biggest worries that is my phone is going to get damaged. Well it fits nice and does no…

Image
The holidays season has begun. If you are trying to find the perfect gift for your kiddos. You should consider Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Never Land Rescue. Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Never Land Rescue just recently came out on DVD. 
My son is a huge fan of Jake and he loves the show. I have to admit that I am even a fan. I love the two pirate rockers in the show. 
Here is a little bit about this DVD. The fate of Never Land hangs in the balance as magical treasure are mysteriously vanishing: Jake's sword, Izzy's pixie dust and even the directions on Cubby's map. O no!! Do not worry Jake is here to the save the day. Jake goes on the Forever Quest to restore the power to the source of Never Land's magic.
My son sat through the whole show. He watched it several times. He absouletley loves Jake and his friends. Also with the DVD a sword came with it and also stickers to put the sword. It was very easy to blow up and brought a lot of fun for the day.
You can find Ja…

Lavanilla Perfume review

Image
Lavanila offers a variety of different product, but I have fallen in love with their fragrances. I wanted to share a little bit of background about Lavanila. When I found out the meaning behind Lavanila I thought it was very interesting. The most universally loved fragrance is the flavor of the vanilla in its purest, freshest form has captivated Danielle Raynor. Danielle Raynor is the founder of Lavanila. When Danielle Raynor started her journey to create healthy skincare and fragrance products, she discovered that some of the finest vanilla come from Madagascar. Over in Madagascar it is called Lavanila. You will find majority of products that are offered on Lavanila are made with vanilla. The reason why vanilla is an ingredient is because it is rich, sweet, luxurious fragrance and also for it anti oxidant properties. I am sure if when you try Lavanila you will fall in love with their products as much as I did.

For the holidays I was able to review their Vanilla Passion Fr…

Zing Air Storm Z-Tek Bow Review

Image
This fall Zing Brand Toys are bringing you the most innovative, high performance product for kids. This Christmas instead of giving your child a video game consider getting them one of many Zing Brand Products. One thing I like about their products is that their products will get children up and moving. My five year old has been asking me for a bow for quite some time. Although he is way to young in my mind to own or have a real bow. I came to a compromise when I saw what Zing has to offer. They have bows that can help younger children learn the concept of the bow and how to shoot without getting hurt.
I was excited that I was able to review Zing Air Storm Z Tek Bow. This toy is recommend for ages 8 and up. The retail price is suggested at 19.99. The Air Storm Z-Tek Bow is considered the next generation archery toy from Zing. I will agree that this product is parent approved. What I like about this product is that the foam bow and arrow. What is really amazing about this product is tha…
