Our Generation Doll Holiday Gift Guide 2015

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 know a lot of little girls this Christmas are asking Santa for a doll. I know that my little girl who is five years old is in love with dolls. As a mother I am always looking for the best ones out there and that are appropriate for my daughter. When I came across Our Generation Dolls I was impressed with the message that their collection gives young girls. 

Our Generation has a wide variety of dolls. They have a regular collection, deluxe dolls, specialty dolls, hair play dolls, and retro dolls. It very hard to choose from because there are so many cute choices that would make any little girl happy.

We were able to review Coral from the deluxe doll collection. I was not sure what to expect when we received her because I never had an Our Generation Doll before. When she came in the mail I will admit she was pretty decent size and well packed in her box. On the box it showed the doll and what she came with. When we unboxed Coral she was in a plastic wrapping so she was protected during her travel. I also noticed that she had one around her head to keep her hair nice during shipping. When we took her out she had a suffer outfit which is very cute. What I also like is you can change the outfit if you like to and it came with a change of clothes. She also came with flip flops which are very cute also. I knew she came with a surf board but was not aware that it was actually that big. It also comes with a string on the surf board that you can attach to her foot. It makes it more realistic. 

What really sells this doll for me is that she comes with accessories. Which many other dolls do not or you have to pay for the extras. We took another little bag out of the box and it had a snorkel and goggles. I really like the set and think the doll look cute with the snorkel and goggles. Then there was another little bag in the box with Corals accessories and her book. Which my daughter loves reading the books. In the picture on the side or a little below shows all the accessories that come with Coral. It comes with snorkel kit and flippers. Another outfit and a hat. 

I was quite impressed with the doll quality. It was made well and will last a long time. It does bend which is good. All the accessories where easy to put on Coral and had no problems with them. The book is fantastic and tells her story. Overall I would highly recommend this collection for your little one. Overall you can't go wrong the doll looks amazing and she is reasonable price with accessories. I would check out your local Target and pick one of these amazing dolls up now before it is to late.

his year, let the experts at Safety 1st make this season a little less stressful.




6 tips for holiday travel with kids
By the experts at Safety 1st

Traveling with kids is no easy task. Parents should get a medal for pulling it off successfully! Here are some of Safety 1st’s tips for doing just that: 

Prepare beyond packing the suitcase
1.    Prepare your child – Holiday parties can cause sensory overload for young children. It’s good to talk about the upcoming trip days, even weeks, in advance. Show photos of family members or friends your child has not met yet. This way, the new face may not seem so unfamiliar.

2.    Prepare the guest room – If your child will be sleeping in a Play Yard during the trip, use it for bed or nap time the entire week before. This will help him or her get used to a new sleep environment. 

3.    Keep tabs on your explorer – In any home, sharp corners are inevitable. Soften the edges of an unfamiliar house with Foam Edge Protectors or an Expandable Table Edge Bumper. The Lift, Lock & Swing Gate is great for blocking off new staircases that your little one may want to venture down

Time to hit the road! 
4.    Before you head out - check in with a local Child Passenger Safety Technician to ensure your child’s seat is installed correctly. You can visit a local police station, fire station, AAA office or Safe Kids Chapter for guidance.

5.    On the road - The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advises children 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 percent less likely to die or be severely injured in the event of a car crash if they are rear facing. For older children, the AAP recommends they ride in boosters until the age of 12 or are 57 inches tall. Booster seats reduce injury risk by 59% compared to just seat belts alone.
6.    In the skies - If you are flying, check to make sure your car seat is FAA certified. If it’s not clearly labeled contact the manufacturer. The Safety 1st Store ‘n Go Booster can hold your child’s travel essentials and it’s FAA certified.

PlaSmart Magic Canvas (Holiday Guide 2015)

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 have a preschooler at home and sometimes I dread when she takes out her markers and paper because she gets it absolutely everywhere. She tries to be so good with them but she has accidents and marks something.

When I found this product from PlaSmart Toys I knew that it would be the perfect match for her. The Magic Canvas is for children ages 12 months and up. This canvas features a double sided canvas and comes with one stylus. What is so unique with this product is that you fill up the stylus with water. After filling it up your child can color on the Magic Canvas. Than when your child does that magic colors will appear on it. How neat is that? Very simple to use with no hard work. All you do is fill it up and have a lot of fun drawing. I can actually let my daughter sit alone and doodle without watching her every move. This toy brings a lot of fun, creativity and no mess which every mom loves. You can find this product on amazon.com and this would make a great holiday gift!

They combine vitamins and mineral important for daily heal with the appeal of the worlds most popular beverage. They prove a way for people to increase the healthfulness of a daily routine. 

When I heard about VitaPerk I was not sure if the coffee would be decent. I could not believe that they made a coffee where it had vitamins in it that made it more health. I believe that is very clever and could not wait to to try it. 

I received a coffee cup full with single serves packets of VitaPerk Coffee. They come in single serve packets that is .05 oz. Each packet has 15 vitamin & Mineral Coffee Boost. You had this packet to your coffee. The flavors VitaPerk come in are hazelnut, energy, vanilla, and original.

Overall they mix very well in the coffee which is great. I don't lim packets that do not mix well and you get a weird taste or gritty taste which this not the case. It dissolves great. My favorite out of all them is the Hazelnut. It give the coffee a nice flavor and it also is providing me Vitamins and a boost which is nice. Overall I really enjoyed trying these single serve packets and would highly recommend. Visit them at Vitaperk.com. This would make a great gift for the holidays.

Skylanders Superchargers (holiday gift guide 2015)

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.

One of the most popular kids games out there is Skylanders. I know that my son has every Sklander game that is out there. He still plays with the older version daily. When I showed him a preview a few months back that a new Skylanders game was coming out he was very excited. I watched him watch the trailer for Skylanders Superchargers and he was memorized by the trailer. I don't think I ever seen him that quite before. After it finished he immediately told me he wanted it!

Skylanders Superchargers introduce and entirely new way to play with Skylanders with land, sea and sky vehicles. How neat is that? This game brings the vehicles to life. 

Kaos has unleashed his most evil weapon yet: The Doomstation of Ultimate Doomstruction. With all of Skylands on the verge of collapse, a special team called the SuperChargers has been assembled to pilot an unstoppable fleet of incredible vehicles. It's down to you to save the day.
This Starter Pack includes:
  • Skylanders SuperChargers video game
  • New Portal of Power
  • 2 Skylanders SuperChargers, Spitfire and Super Shot Stealth Elf
  • 1 Skylanders vehicle, Hot Streak
  • Collection poster featuring the complete set of Skylanders SuperChargers and their vehicle


My son had so much playing this game. I personally do not understand video game unlike he does. Although I do find myself playing Skylanders after my son goes to sleep. That will be our little secret. He has told me that he can speed down road in vehicular combat, race doing different trick you would say. This game is story based also if you were wondering you follow a story and this game offers vehicle based, on foot adventures, combat, puzzles, mini games, activities and so much more. 

Overall my son had a great time playing this game like the other ones. He says that this one is by far his favorite Skylanders game. If you are looking for more vehicles I believe there are twenty more that you can choose from. Also their are other characters you can get for this game like the other Skylanders. This game does make it on your top toy list. It was a lot of fun. We do not want to spoil the game for you so we don't want to give to much away. I would recommend snagging this up for the holidays!! It will make a great gift. 

Right now you can find Superchargers on all different systems and a few stores like 
Toys R' Us has a great deals on them!!

Buzz Bee Toys (Holiday Gift Guide 2015)

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.


Buzz Bee Toys

Every child's dream is to wake up on Christmas and receive some kind of toy gun. I know that my son loves the play toys whether they are water guns, air guns or dart guns. Our family personally gets in trouble with the nerf type of guns. Usually in our house it turns into nerf wars or we set up targets to shoot and we typically end up breaking something which is never fun.

Recently I came across a company called Buzz Bee toys and they have everything imaginable and so much more than that. Buzz Bee Toys provides the ultimate play experience with each toy they make. They have a wide variety of toys from dart and water blaster to water toys, flying toys, junior sport and pogo.

We received several different toys to play with for the holidays. Let me tell you it was so much fun and we got into a lot of trouble. I will start off and let you know that these would make fantastic gifts. I also like this type of toy because I am a single mom and sometimes it hard to find a toy or something to do with my son. This toy brings us together and we enjoy shooting things and sometimes each other with this toy. 

The first toy that we tried was Airmax Tyrant. In the picture it is the blue and orange gun. What I like about this particular one that it is clip fed which it helps contain the darts. What amazes me that this little toy gun can shoot the darts up to 80 feet away. I can let you know we enjoyed testing this theory and they went super far. It was easy to hold. There was no problem for my son to load this one. It went smoothly. Which sometimes in the past they were not. This set includes 20 air max suction darts and a 12 dart clip. This particular toy is recommend for ages 6 and up. Adults can play with it to. I promise I have and I loved it. 

The next toy that we played with is the Predator. This one was a favorite for my son. He is getting into this type of gun with the scope. This a safer option for him. He was pretty impressed with this one and said it was probably his favorite. It hard for a seven year old boy to choose his favorite. This one does not have as much power as the last one did but it does go pretty far. It shoots about 30 feet away. Which is still quite the distance. What I like about the predator is that the scope can come off if you choose. If you do not want to use it you can take it off and if you choose you can put it back on if you you would like. It very easy to do that and very easy. The predator also has a secret storage area to hold ammo which is pretty cool. This one comes with 4 soft foam darts and a scope. The Predator is recommend for ages 6 and up. 

The next toy is GunSmoke. This one is also another one of our favorites. I personally never saw one like this one before and it pretty awesome. When you use GunSmoke it actually delivers a puff of smoke with every blast. How realistic is that and how cool? This one easy to load. All you need to is load a dart into the shell and putt the trigger how easy is that. After doing that you will see a puff of smoke when the dar is launched. This one shoots up to 30 feet also. Which is pretty decent. Then after you pull the trigger open up the blaster and eject the shell. About the gun smoke it last about 500 blast of smoke. Don't worry the smoke and the fluid is in a self contained cartridge so there is no mess at all. Parents do not worry no mess at all. This one has 4 soft dart. You will have to plan ahead and have batteries for this particular gun.

The last gun toy we were able to try was their Air Warrior Ultra Tek Wizard 2 pack. This particular one my daughter and son both loved it. They where the same one and they loved attacking each other with this one. This one does shoot 72 feet away. It easy to load. In this pack of course you get to blaster with 8 darts that have suction cups. How much fun?

Overall these are so much fun to play with and would make a great holiday gift. I will let you know that they are made to shoot a distance. If you shoot people in close range they are going to hurt and sting a little. It doesn't as much if it further away. I loved them and we had a lot of fun playing with them. Make sure you check them out at your local Walmart!!

If you have a little girl that Dora would make a perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season. I can tell you that my five year old has loved Dora for a couple years now and nothing has changed. I know recently she has seen several Dora toys and have announced that she wants them.

I know that I have seen Train and Play Dora and Perrito. My daughter loves that Dora come with a dog. She also talks when you push the button and she even speaks in spanish. What is cool about this toy is that you can help Dora train Perrito and teach him tricks such as sit, lie down, high five and dance. You can also watch Perrito dance on his hind legs and even jump up to give Dora a sweet puppy kiss. When you raise Dora's arm up and down you can watch Perrito magically respond to Dora's commands which is pretty amazing.

This is a really neat toy for young girls and even boys. It so much fun to play with. It would make an amazing gift. 

My daughter recently and been very interested in dress up. We have many costumes and dresses that she can dress up in. This Dora set comes in handy in her collection. This would make a great gift for any little girl to add to her dress up collection. It comes with necklaces, mirror, eating comb and so much more. This would also make a little girl happy.

Make sure you check out these toys at your local retailer!

Another one of our favorite teams the Dallas Cowboys. This one my son favorite set that came in the box. He had a lot of fund building the trainer car. He loves building vehicles. This was really cool and he liked how well it went with this other set. 

The last thing that was in our box was mini figures. This was pretty cool also. If your child has their favorite team member you may be able to purchase him to go with your other sets. I thought that was pretty cool. The come in a little box and you assemble him. Not hard to do. I love the helmets on the player. I love how you can get a different assortment and pick the ones that you like. You can even create your own team with your favorite players.

Pillow Pets (Holiday gift guide 2015)

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.

Pillow Pets is very popular in our home. My son was given a Pillow Pet when he was little and he still has it 6 years later. He has a dinosaur Pillow Pet. Recently we were given an opportunity to review one of Pillow Pets and my daughter was thrilled. We reviewed the Mystical Unicorn. 

This arrived quite quickly. I was a little disappointed that the package was ripped. This although had nothing to do with the company but with the shipper. There was some dirt on the animal and had to use a wet cloth to get it off. It came off for the most part. 

My daughter loved this pillow pet. Her favorite colors are purple and pink and when she saw this unicorn is pink she was very excited. When she took it out it was very soft for her and became her new best friend. She would drag this unicorn everywhere for her. It came in handy when she was watching tv and using it as a pillow. At night she cuddles up with it because it her new best friend. We even take it out with us in the car and strap it in the car. I would say that these pillow pets are great for kids and they can serve for a pillow or stuff animal.

Overall I really like Pillow Pets they have a variety of different ones and there is something for everyone. They even have some of your favorite characters available. I would highly recommend checking them out for the holidays. You can not go wrong with one of them.

Thermal Aid (holiday gift guide 2015)

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 know as a mom I love to relax. Since I am a single mom I need that special me time. I personally get a lot of stress headaches and wanted to find something that could help me relax and maybe get rid of these headaches. Thermal Aid has a 100% Natural Headache Relief System. Which is exactly what I was looking for.

This comes with a big  soft eye mask that covers your whole eyes. Which when I put it on it covers the eyes and it is completely dark. It also comes with a cream that is supposed to help with the migraine also. This system help relieves migraine and tension headaches, works within minute, clinically proven and doctor recommend.

This system is very easy to use. First I put the cream on my temple of my forehead and on the sides. Than I put the mask over my eyes and relax. I really like the mask when wearing it, it is not to heavy and fits just right. I have tried several masks in the past and none have ever been worth keeping. This blocks the light out which is great. I can also fall asleep faster also. The cream also helps me relax and seems to help my headaches. I would definitely recommend this as a gift for the holidays. you can find their product at the link below.

Madam Glam (Holiday Gift Guide 2015)

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 recently came across a wonderful website called Madam Glam and they have amazing products. They company offers a variety of different nail polishes, gel nail polishes, lip glosses, eyeshadow and so much more. This would make great stocking stuffer ideas or even gift basket goodies for that special someone. 

I was excited when I received my package in the mail. It came in a little black box that was super cute. I really like that touch and it made it even extra special. In the box it had a mascara and three eye shadows. The Mascara was great! I needed a new mascara and this one was the key. This mascara was easy to use and apply. I had no problems applying and it went on smooth. I had no clumps or it sticking. It looked great and definitely a fan of this mascara. 

Then we received Baby Brown, Graphite, and Marooned Eyeshadows. I really like this eyeshadow and this is why. It comes in a little square easy for travel. When you open this eye shadow it has the shadow compartment and underneath is where the applicator is and there is a mirror. So when you are on the go it makes it that much easier to apply and check your eye shadow. This eyeshadow went on super smooth. I like how two of them had a little spark in the eyeshadow and you can notice it when you apply. It also can blend easily to if that is what you are looking for. 

Overall I am a new fan of Madam Glam. I will be buying more eyeshadow form them from now on. I really enjoy their makeup and would highly recommend their brand. Make sure you stop by their site and pick up some of their product for the holiday's!!
