Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Betty Lukens Learning With Fun Felt Review/Giveaway

I remember when I was a little girl I loved playing with felt play-sets. My family even has pictures of me on the floor playing with them. They said I could spend hours playing with my felt play-sets. I always had such a huge imagination, makes me wonder why I was never able to write a book. So, when I came across the Betty Lukens Learning With Fun Felt, I feel in love with the play-sets that they offered. I couldn't have been more happier when they offered to work on a review with me.

If you are anything like me, you absolutely love candles. Candles can add so much to a room and your mood. They come in all sorts of shapes, styles and colors. Some even smell good. But, the problem with most candles is that they don't burn even, are way to expensive, burn really fast, and are made with harsh chemicals.

Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Monster Factory Review/Giveaway

My kids love monsters, in fact they have a few different ones that they play with all the time. So, having the chance to review a Monster Factory plush toy monster, was going to be great for my kids. Plus, my little girl always says Monster's need love too! To be honest it is quite odd for my kids to love monsters as I remember being a kid scared half to death of them.

Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Go! Go! Sports Girls Review/Giveaway

As parents we want to teach our girls starting at a young age how important it is to take care of their bodies. How eating, sleeping and exercising right keep our mind, body, and soul happy. Of course, our little girls don't just want to listen to what we have to say. Girls understand more and are willing to learn new things, if you are more on their level. Go Go Sports Girls offers girls for so many different sports and teach our girls the importance of taking care of themselves.

About the company: Dream Big Toy Company created Go! Go! Sports Girls as a fun and educational way to promote self-appreciation and the benefits of daily exercise, healthy eating and sleeping habits, self-esteem and overall healthy life-skills for girls ages 3-12. Go! Go! Sports Girls are age and size appropriate. They do not encourage an older or overly mature image. The image is innocent with a subtle yet strong message - appreciate and be true to yourself! At Dream Big Toy Company, we feel strongly about giving back. A portion of our profits is donated to organizations that encourage girls to participate in physical activity and develop healthy lifestyles.

Holiday Gift Guide: My Poppers Penguins DVD Review

 Debuting on Blu-ray, DVD 
and Digital Download December 6!

My family and I love to relax together and watch fun family movies. This allows us to laugh and make memories of being together. Having the chance to review Mr. Poppers Penguins couldn't have been at a better time. With it getting cold out and all we want to do is get under warm blankets and eat popcorn together. This movie was funny from the beginning to the end. I remember seeing the previews on TV months ago and couldn't wait to watch it. Since, my hubby and I am such huge fans of Jim Carrey, it was really nice to see a funny family movie with him it in. My kids couldn't get enough of Jim Carrey and the penguins together. On of their favorite parts was when they were dancing and a penguin on the end fell over. Besides that funny part, the whole movie was great.

As Mr. Popper quickly gets acquainted with – and increasingly attached to – his winged roommates, his  life quickly unravels: the deal he’s long been working on with a formidable socialiate, Mrs. Van Gundy, played by the acclaimed Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote, Beauty and the Beast),  is derailed and Popper almost lands in jail.  While Popper’s penguins turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland - they teach him valuable lessons about family- human and otherwise!
