CLOSED K'NEX Review and Giveaway! Ends 10/12


"K'NEX is the next generation of construction sets. It inspires creativity, builds self-confidence and encourages interaction among children and parents. The possibilities are endless!"



When i was a kid i remember i spent countless hours building things it was one of my favorite things to do when i was growing up because you can let your imagination go wild and there is no limit of possibilities of what you can make.   I want my kids to have the same memories and fun times to look back on. I still enjoy playing and building i was just as excited as the kids when we received our package from KNEX. We didn't waste any time and got right to the fun!



First we built the Sesame street characters because my daughter wouldn't have it any other way she loves Elmo, cookie monster and Ernie i figured it would be best to wait till her nap to play with the others. They both had alot of fun with them my son was so nice to help his sister build them and then he took them apart and made some silly characters with them we all had alot of fun with these they were very easy to put together my 2 year old even started to get the hang of it.







 Your child can build Sesame Street's coolest red monster, Elmo, gearing up to kick his soccer ball! This 13 piece set includes parts to build Elmo in his uniform and ready to hit the field with his soccer ball. "Play & Learn" activity sheet filled with collaborative and educational fun for parent and child is also included along with additional building ideas. When playtime is over store the parts in the handy canister for a quick and easy clean-up.




Your child can build one of Sesame Street's most lovable - and hungriest - characters, Cookie Monster, getting some exercise by hitting the basketball court! This 15 piece set includes parts to build Cookie Monster dressed in his uniform, including his yellow visor, with basketball in hand. "Play & Learn" activity sheet filled with collaborative and educational fun for parent and child is also included along with additional building ideas. When playtime is over store the parts in the handy canister for a quick and easy clean-up.



Your child can build Sesame Street's friendliest resident, Ernie, dressed in his bathing suit and ready to take a swim! This 14 piece set includes parts to build Ernie, complete with snorkel and flippers, on his way to the pool, lake or beach! "Play & Learn" activity sheet filled with collaborative and educational fun for parent and child is also included along with additional building ideas. When playtime is over store the parts in the handy canister for a quick and easy clean-up.



Then after a long awaited wait my daughter took her nap my and my son got to it and we had a blast building The fire rescue 10 set and the collect and build construction crew series. my son did very well following the instructions he hardly needed my help only time he did was with the construction crew sets some of the pieces don't hold together tight and it made it a little more challenging even for me but we worked through it and still had alot of fun we still enjoy playing and building with them its one of my sons new favorite things to do. his favorite one out of them is the Fire rescue 10 because you can build 10 different things with it! hes made all kinds of things its amazing how kid's minds work i love to see them both using there imagination and having fun especially when they do it together.







Build 10 different models, including a cool fire engine, and bring them to life with the spring motor! Packed with 127 parts plus step-by-step instructions and building ideas for 10 unique models. The convenient storage box is a great place to store your parts and makes it easy for you to take the fun with you. For ages 5+.

This is something i feel good about them watching i know it is engaging them and they are learning all sorts of new things. I highly recommend Juno baby for your little ones and even not so little ones too.

We have all been hustling and bustling to get our kids back to school. to get them interested in it, to get them all set up with the products they need to succeed. One brand i have always trusted is Elmer's Glue They have a glue for everything and a big variety of school glues.


My sons favorite to use at school is Their


He loves that its colored and goes on purple so he can see where the glue is and he really enjoys watching it disappear. i like that it makes his school a little bit more interesting and fun.

Product Description:


Elmer’s disappearing purple formula has a smooth application and is great for kids! The disappearing purple formula goes on purple so it is easy to see when applying, and dries clear. It is safe, non-toxic and acid free. It washes easily off hands and out of clothes.


And we also like

Product Description:


Elmer’s all purpose school glue sticks has a clear, smooth application and are perfect for school projects. These easy to use, easy to clean-up washable glue sticks are the choice for teachers everywhere





And now that my son is in school my daughter is home without a playmate so i try and keep her busy with some crafts she get so excited to see and use Elmer's



My son loves it too. i need to go get a bottle of there red galactic glue so they will stop fighting over it when we do crafts all together


Product Description:


Elmer's Galactic Glue is a washable, no run gel that is safe, non-toxic and out of this world! The space-age bottle design is easy to grip and Galactic Glue dries clear with iridescent glitter that sparkles like the stars in the Milky Way. Ideal for paper, cloth and numerous crafts.

Awesome FURminator Deluxe Review!





First off i would love to introduce you to our dog Shadow we rescued him last November we think he is a cocker spaniel/border collie mix. We couldn't have found a better dog he fits in perfectly here and he is great with the kids in fact he acts just like them.





About a month of having him i started realizing how much he sheds. He has a beautiful black wavy coat of fur which i love on him but not on my furniture it gets everywhere! i cant believe the places i have found his hair it is one of my pet peeves. I have tried numerous shampoo's and deshedding tools and none seemed get all the hairs off that needed to come off. I had heard so many great things about the FURminator from friends and family. I was really excited when i got the opportunity to review the..




"deLuxe deShedding Tools: Building upon the success of the original FURminator deShedding Tool, the deLuxe Collection features the same premium quality, stainless steel edge, plus a sleek, enhanced design for easier use.

These newly redesigned tools include a FURejector button, making the edge easier to clean and allowing for convenient one-handed grooming; they also feature a new sleek, ergonomic handle, making the tools more comfortable to grip.

FURminator deShedding Tools – both original and deLuxe – do not cut or damage the topcoat and are all guaranteed to work better than any brush, rake or comb available. The tools reduce airborne allergens and help to eliminate hairballs in cats.

Retail Locations: The deLuxe Collection is sold nationwide at pet retail stores and veterinarian offices, as well as online.

Design & Pricing: The deLuxe Collection is designed for long- and short-haired cats and dogs and is sold in the following sizes: cat ($44.99), small ($44.99), medium ($54.99), and large ($64.99)." 


 So we started out by giving the dog a bath as is says in the directions to make sure they have a clean coat with no tangles or mats then we waited ever so patiently for him to dry and then finally the time came to FURminate. at first i was worried it would hurt him we made sure we read the directions and followed them to the T. At first he was skittish to the fact he had never seen it before but once we started using it he was so relaxed he even layed on his back for us to do his belly  he absolutely loved it and it didn't hurt him at all.  i was in shock to the amount of hair that came off every stroke seemed to fill the brush. you know how hard it is to get hair out of a brush? Guess what it has a button called the furjector at the top that pushes all the hair out! that was by far one of my favorite features. This was the amount of fur after about 5 Min's or brushing.  You can imagine how much more came off.




 I highly doubt i will ever use another deshedder again i highly recommend the FURminator deLuxe to anyone who has pet hair problems and its not just for dogs they have some for cats too! They also have a line of shampoos and hair care for pets too.


Disclosure: Thank you to FURminator for providing me a product for me to review. all opinions and thoughts are 100% my own

Wilton Cake pans and decorating supplies review!

            

       I have a few traditions in my house that i have started a few years ago, Every Holiday me and the kids make cupcakes and decorate them and put them on the cupcake stand it is very festive and yummy! I also make all the birthday cakes now i am no pro at it but its amazing what there is out there to work with. Wilton was kind enough to send me some products that will help me with my cake making. I have always loved Wilton products they are easy to use and the pans last forever. My husband has a thing with ruining my baking pans i honestly don't know how he does it but all of them are ruined except my Wilton pans (yes he uses them too) Wilton sent me a set of there 10 in. round Ultra Gold cake pans these are amazing! you know how most pans change color after you use them? maybe its just me but mine never stay shiny. After baking and washing their Ultra gold pans are still as beautiful as when i opened them! i am very excited to have found pans that will stay beautiful for years to come. here is a little bit more about Wilton's Ultra gold Line.



 UltraGold is a new line of bakeware that takes the art of baking to a higher level and is the culmination of Wilton’s 80 years of baking and dessert decorating experience. Every Wilton UltraGold pan was designed with features that provide the perfect baking results decorators demand:
 Premium Aluminum
Every Wilton Ultra Gold pan is hand-crafted to ensure a perfect shape and better baking results for you.

Even Heating – Won’t Warp
UltraGold heats more evenly and holds its shape like no other brand. Our premium aluminum distributes heat evenly for a light, golden brown cake surface that is ideal for decorating.



Durable Anodized Surface
Anodizing creates a more consistent surface finish. This means that UltraGold’s signature golden finish will look great and bake beautifully for years to come.


Oversized Handles for Easy Lifting
Convenient extended handles help you lift the Ultra Gold pan safely and easily. Pan dimensions are stamped on the handles.



 Now whats a cake with frosting and decorations?! Wilton has everything you could imagine to decorate your cake with. i was very happy to be able to review their  25 piece cake decorating set. It was perfect for a novice like myself it had very detailed instructions and they are easy to understand. the kit came with 5 tips, 12 decorator bags 2 couplers for changing tips without having to use a new bag, 4 icing colors Lemon Yellow, Pink, Sky Blue, Leaf Green and a flower nail which i have yet to try. They also sent some Premade icing flowers and leaves and some confetti sprinkles, the flowers are beautiful and they were perfect they weren't chipped or broken or misshapen.


Now what did i do with all this stuff? I made my husband a birthday cake! he just celebrated his 33rd birthday. its not perfect but it looks better than last time. There are still a few tools i need i realized when making this cake a butter knife sucks for spreading frosting. Here is a pic of his cake! I didn't add the daisy's i really don't think he would have been thrilled to have flowers on his cake. but i will upload a pic of what i use them on!







 I definitely recommend Wilton for Novice-Experts bakers/decorators there products always work great and they last forever.



Disclosure Thank you to Wilton for providing the products for me to review. all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own
