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 right around the corner. I have found one of the best stocking stuffers out there. I came across a great site with amazing products and great variety of products. Dead Sea Spa Care is a great site with amazing products great for the holidays. Dead Sea Spa Care has several product such as facial products, nail care, skin and heal care, aromatherapy scrub, judaica gifts, gift sets, home spa pampering sets, honeywell replacements filters, hot specials and baby products. I was excited when I was able to try several of their products.

The first product that I was able to try was their Skin Renewal Shea Body Butter.      This product comes in a 8 fl oz jar. When I opened up this jar it had an amazing smell to it. It is no lie that I have dry sensitive skin so I am always on the look out for new products that will help my skin. This product will help renew your skin with the rich benefits of the Dead Sea Minerals and Shea butter. This is known to help restore elasticity to the skin while nourishing dehydrated cells through healthy anti oxidants enriched emollients. When I first tried this product I became obsessed. I was very fond of the smell. Personally when I used this product I used it after I shower, so it locks in the moisture after I use it. When I massage the cream in my skin it absorbs quite quickly. It does not leave and residue or greasy feeling after using. It leaves a nice scent after rubbing it in. I would definitely keep using this product. 

The second product that I got to review fromDead Sea Spa Care was the Anti Aging Gel Peel. Dead Sea Anti-Aging Peeling Gel is a great product to use on your face and help cleanse your skin. When I tried this product I washed my face with warm water. I Apply the Dead Sea Anti Aging Peeling Gel thinly and rub it in gently in your skin. After rubbing the product in wash warm water off right after using the product. This cream was more like a gel cream and it rubbed in really good. After doing that you can see that it was working because the dead skin was coming fun. I washed the gel off and then my face was very smooth. I would recommend this as a great holiday gift.

Another product that I received was there Pumice Stone. I was excited about this product because my feet really need some tender, love and care. This Pumice Stone is shaped like and oval bar of soap. When I used this product I placed a few drops of the body wash on the stone. I scrubbed the bottom of my feet and I was quite surprised how well it worked. After using this product and after I got out of the shower I applied lotion to my feet. I would highly recommend this product. 

The last product that I received for review was their Dead Sea Salt Scrub Aromatic Body Treatment Nourishing, Exfoliating Body Scrub. This product was made in Italy. The weight of this product is 20 oz. This product is the ultimate aromatic body exfoliating treatment. This product has pure dead sea salt crystals absorbed into a mixture of select aromatic oils. The salt in this product gently exfoliate my skin. The oils in the skin softens and moisturize the skin. When I applied this product it does not leave a greasy feel. I use this product 2-3 times a week when I take a shower. When using in the shower I massage this product on my skin. After using this product I use warm water to rinse of than pat dry. My skin feels amazing after using this product. My skin feels smoother and more hydrated after using.

I have been a huge fans of Dead Sea Products and after using these product I fell more in love with their products. I would highly recommend buying these products for gifts this holiday season. They would go great in a spa gift basket or stocking stuffers. You are able to find their product at the link below.

All you mama's out there know, sometimes, we need some alone time in the bathroom. I always have a bathroom buddy. He wants to get into everything while I go to the bathroom, wants to be in the bath tub while I shower.. Wants to pull everything off shelves and out of the cupboard. So, when it is bed time, this mama wants to take some me time. 


I have found that with Honeycat Cosmetics, I can do that. I get the time to relax in the tub, without all the boats and books from my son. When I get out, I always feel refreshed. 


The way the Honeycat Cosmetics have their products packaged I think is just part of the fun. I know many cat lovers, and this would make puurfect gifts for them. I received three items to try, and I would love to tell you about them. 



The first item I would like to tell you about is, Cat-Bernet Sauvignon Red Wine Shower Gel. I love that the bottle alone looks like a smaller bottle of nice wine, if you are clumsy, don't worry it is plastic. The smell is like a very sweet grape wine smell, but while using it you don't need much. A little goes a very long way. This product lathers so well, which is something I really like in a good soap. This bottle is 14.5 ounces. I loved that the smell was not to overpowering after washing with it, but it was still there. 



Rub My Tummy Body Cream is the greatest. It doesn't leave your body feeling greasy at all, which is one of my biggest pet peeves. This has a light smell of almond, which is very pleasant. I love that it is actually very thick and creamy. So, again a little goes a long way. And the scent, and feeling of having body butter on you last for much longer then the products you can get at your local stores. 



Ok, now to my favorite packaging ever! Chick of the Sea Foaming bath salts. This comes in what looks like a wet cat food can. And smells so good. I didn't use much in my bath. And typically when I use bath salts, I just end up being frustrated that when I go to sit in the tub I can feel the salts all over on my bottom. These dissolved great. And smelled wonderful, chocolate amaretto, and mint lightly came over my bath tub, which just made me feel like I was delicious.

The Goldbergs Complete Season 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 am excited to to share with you that The Goldbergs The Complete First Season is coming to DVD on September 9th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. This complete series includes all your favorite 23 episodes. 

A little bit about The Goldbergs:
Reagan was in the White House, the malls were filled with New Wave fashionistas and the Goldbergs were living large in the '80s. Documenting his hilariously combative, yet loving family with a video camera nearly as big as he is, 11-year-old geek Adam (Sean Giambrone) is witness to all kinds of insanity from his over-protective, over-the-top mom (Wendi McLendon-Covey), quick tempered dad (Jeff Garlin), rebellious sister (Haley Orrantia),high strung brother (Troy Gentile) and super suave grandfather (George Segal).

Special Features:
  • Cast and Crew Commentary on five episodes: Never Say Die!, Kara-Te', Call Me When You Get There, Lame Gretzky & You Opened the Door
  • Five All New Featurettes
  1. Blast from the Past: Making Season One- Go behind the scenes with the cast and creator Adam F. Goldberg to get the inside scoop about creating this dysfunctional, yet loving family.
  2. Our House: The 80's Revisited- a tour of the Goldberg house with the production design and props team to get a glimpse into the intricate 80s detail from the show. 
  3. On Set with Jeff Garlin- Spend a day behind the scenes with the patriarch of the Goldberg family.
  4. Patton Oswalt: Adam Grows Up- Hear from Oatton Oswalt about his favorite moments from the show & a rare glimpse into his process as narrator.
  5. Costumes of the '80s: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly- From Beverly's sweaters to Murray's tightly whiteys, fans can tour the wardrobe department with Costume Designer Kerri Smith.
Overall I was excited when I was able to review a copy of the first season of The Goldbergs. When the first season aired honestly I did not have cable at that time and this show seemed interesting to me. When I finally got cable it was at the end of the series. If you have not seen this show yet and waiting for it to come out like me you will be impressed with the series. When I started watching  the series I fell in love with the characters they are so much fun to watch. I would recommend this series for family night and grab the popcorn and spend time with the family. You can find the complete season of the Goldbergs at your local retailer on September 5th.

I live in a house hold of candy lovers. We all have a huge sweet tooth. I just hate knowing what terrible things are in the candy at your local convenience store. So, when I found Lovely Candy Co. I was super excited to see that they are a company that are non gmo AND gluten free. I received six flavors to sample and tell everyone about. Let me tell you about all of them. I can't pick favorites here, because honestly they are all so good. My husband even likes them and he is picky. I have had to hide them from both of us multiple times. 








Chocolate Chews were my son and my husbands favorite. I loved that they didn't taste fake. They don't stick to your teeth at all. Which is great. They have a more rich real chocolate flavor. 









Super Fruit Chews are a great fruit flavored candy. They did stick to the paper a little, but I am positive it is from Michigan humid weather. Never the less, I got quickly addicted. This bag has three flavors, Blueberry, Cranberry, and Raspberry. 










These are some of the thickest caramels I have ever seen in my life. They are so great! If you are ever having a craving two of these will take care of it. And you think, caramel it is going to stick to your teeth. But, it doesn't! These are so so delicious. 













Raspberry Chocolate Chews are the perfect blend of Chocolate and Raspberry. So soft and chewy. 













In this bag you will find apple , blackberry, and cherry chews. These are vegan approved. They have real fruit in every chew. 












Ok, so these Chocolate Swirl Caramels. They are the perfect blend of chocolate and caramel. And just like the regular caramels, they are so big! These are definitely one candy that haven't lasted long in my house.

I am one of those moms is obsessed with purses. I never have enough purses and it seems like I have a purse for every occasion. I am always on the lookout for new companies that have great quality purses. Recently I came across a company called Mia Tui and they have a variety of different bags.

Mia Tui was founded in 2010 after Charlotte spent years trying to find the perfect bag that would suited her busy lifestyle. Charlotte is a mother of two and enjoys going to the gym, shopping and traveling. As you can tell she has a busy life, but she couldn't find a bag that could keep up with her lifestyle. That is when she created Mia Tui. Mia Tui is the busy woman's best friend. She created a stylish yet completely practical. 

I received the Poppy Bag in silver for review. When I received the bag in the mail I was quite impressed with the quality. It was a little bigger than I expected it to be. When I heard that I was going to be reviewing the silver color I was not sure if I would be a fan. I am really not a fan of the color silver, but I like the color/texture of the bag. This bag was defiantly designed for a mom. It had enough room for everything that I need to bring with me. 

I love how the strap with the Poppy Bag is adjustable. It will allow you to wear it long or short. Another great feature of the Poppy Bag is the unique functional interior and waterproof fabrics inside and out. As a mom I am always looking for storage and extra pockets. On the back of the Poppy bag their is a zipped pocket. On the inside of the Poppy Bag you will find a matching Clutchbag with the hand strap, key clip, phone pocket, pen holder, and pink interior. 

I would highly recommend this bag for the busy mom. I can fit all of my on to go items and must have items in this bag. I also love the style of the purse. I will admit there are times where this purse does not go with my outfit, but I still love it. If your not a fan of the silver color they have a variety of different colors in the Poppy Bag. They also have a variety of different style purses also. You can find their bags with the link below.

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

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.

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. You can find their products with the link below.

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.

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.

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.

Real Milk Paint 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 love when it is summer time and I can spend the day going to garage sales and seeing what I can find. I consider my self a bargain mom where I like to find thing and fix them up. I love buying old pieces of furniture and fixing them up. I love to refurnish tables and dressers. 

I recently came across a company called The Real Milk Paint. The inspiration behind The Real Milk Paint is that he wanted to paint his wardrobe that was made out of pine. He wanted to make milk paint from scratch to paint it. He told his wife about his idea and she thought he was nuts. To start this new adventure he bought old formula books for furniture finishing. When he came across the formulas they tend to have some strange materials in them. He searched and researched until he found the perfect formula. The paint is dry powdered Real Milk Paint. 

I received two packages of Real Milk Paint for review. The two colors that I received were Terra Cotta and Yellow Rose. Real Milk Paint has a variety of colors that you can choose from. The paint comes in small packages which is very nice. What I also like about this paint it's easy to mix. You just add water. Each bag that I received 2 1/2 cups of powdered milk paint. When you choose to mix your paint you want to mix it in a glass or plastic container 2 times larger  than needed. This will allow you to mix and not make a mess. To mix 1 quart you want to add 2 1/2 cups of water to the entire contents. Stir the paint for one minute. Make sure there is nothing stuck to the bottom. Let the paint stand for 20 minutes and stir occasion. When you want to paint the surface you want to make sure it is clean. The surface must be free of contamination, wax, grease, or oils. 

When I start a project I hate preparing paint or fussing with paint. With Real Milk Paint I felt like it was easy to mix the paint without a huge fuss. The instructions were to the point and helpful. I like the consistency of the paint and it went well on the old table that I had in my house. It dried pretty quickly also. I would highly recommend Real Milk Paint for your next project.

I know at time I like to lounge around and I like to be comfy. I recently came across a new company called FOXERS. FOXERS is a company that offers a girly, sexy and comfortable boxers for women.

A little bit about FOXERS: April Spring is the designer of FOXERS. April wore soft cotton boxers on warm evenings as loungewear and just loved how soft the waistbands were on them. April studied fashion illustration in Asia and previous work experience at Saks, took it upon herself in late 2006 to create the perfect girly version of boxers which is FOXERS.

I was excited when I was given an opportunity review FOXERS. When my package arrived I was excited to open my package. When I opened my package I took out a nice black bag that had Foxers printed on the bag. It was a nice black draw string bag. Inside I received papaya boxer brief for review. When I saw this at first I was not sure if I liked the the pattern on top. When I took it out and looked at it better it started to grow on me. The material was soft when I felt it and very comfy. I was a huge fan of the lace on the bottom of the boxers. These were very cute. When I put them on they fit just right and felt comfortable. 

Overall I would highly recommend FOXERS if you have a wedding, anniversary or want to get something special for that special man in your life. I would recommend investing in something special from FOXERS. If you want to find that special FOXERS for yourself you can find it with the link below.

Do you have a young musician in the family or a child wanting to learn and instrument? eMedia Music offers a variety of different instruments that young musicians can use as beginner instruments.

eMedia Music Corporation is the world's leading publisher of educational music software, apps, and DVDs. eMedia is dedicated to producing high quality software that gives everyone access to the joy of making music by combining the following: Experienced and Accredited Instructors, Proven, Developed Curriculum, eMedia Music Education Technology, and Popular songs. 

I was excited when I was given the opportunity to review one of their Guitar beginner kits. My Guitar Beginner Pack is a great guitar package designed to get children started learning the basics of music in a fun way. 

Features of My Guitar Beginner Pack includes the following:
  • A Sequoia 3/4 size nylon string classical guitar for kids
  • The award-winning eMedia Guitar software for Mac and Window
  • An eMedia My Guitar Bonus DVD, great for when a computer is not available
  • Vital guitar accessories, including a guitar strap, extra set of string, and guitar pick
  • A durable, nylon gig bag w/straps and pocket
When I opened up the package to see what was in side and to examine this kit. I was impressed with the quality of the kit and guitar. I was impressed with the packing of the kit. It was nice and secure. When I opened up the packaged and saw the guitar I was impressed with the quality of the guitar. It was perfect size for a new beginner. My son was able to hold it and start playing without it be awkward. My son was very excited to start learning how to play and learn more about his new guitar. eMedia provides software that is designed to provide guitar lessons for kids and keep them engaged. The software provided interactive games, videos and easy kids songs, animations, and special interactive music editions technologies. 

I was quite impressed with the whole process. I know at time children have a hard time staying focused or intrigued about something. I know the guitar or any instrument in the matter is difficult to learn how to play. I know my son for awhile wanted to learn how to play the guitar. I like how eMedia offers a variety of different beginner kits, so children can learn the instrument of their choice. They also come with a cd to help them with lessons and learn how to play. I am really impressed with the concept that eMedia provides.

If you have a child that interested in taking the first step to learning a new instrument I would recommend checking out eMeida music. You can find their website with the link below
