Harper’s Personalized Christmas Book from Hooray Heroes

Merry Christmas, Harper is Harper’s personalized Christmas book from Hooray Heroes and we are so in love with it! The pictures and colors are so vibrant, it makes everything come to life right before your eyes.

To start customizing your child’s very own book you first choose their appearance, hair color and type, eye color, skin tone, and you can even add in some freckles or glasses. One you have customized your child’s character you can start choosing which 10 stories your child will star in, making this book special to your family.

Once you are done creating your child’s book, you get to write a dedication to your little one. This is my favorite part of the whole customization process and what makes it truly special to me! They have some cute dedication you can choose from or you can add your own. I choose the “Santa’s got his eye on you” dedication and changed it up a little to suit us!

Harper’s favorite part of the whole book is her sitting with Santa and all of the Christmas lights! She just loves reading her name in the story and pointing out her character. I love that she is actually listening and picking up what we are reading to her because she is so into the stories! She is in the book after all, so how can she not get sucked in every time, reading her own name and seeing her own personalized hero.

This personalized Christmas book is the perfect gift for children of any age! Reading this cute book with the whole family will be sure to get everyone in the Christmas spirit!

Let’s Play World Traveler Kid Wonder Box

Kid Wonder is our favorite subscription box for children, I seriously can not say enough good things about these boxes! Leaning and fun put in one is always a win but, the Kid Wonder boxes really get little ones minds going! It gives us a chance to interact and play together while learning, huge plus in this house! The boxes are perfect for children ages 3-6, but our 2 year old enjoys the activities as well, under supervision of course.

The girls had a chance to check out the Let’s Play World Traveler box this month and loved every second of it! I honestly stopped snapping pictures at some point because even I was drawn into all the fun! The girls were able to make their own suitcase and pack it up to travel to Tanzania, Mexico, Japan, and France. They had a ball snapping pictures while on an African safari of all the animals they encountered with the camera they made! We visited Japan and mastered our chopstick skills after making our own sushi out of playdough. Stopped by France to recreate the Monet’s painting. Learned how to salsa dance and painted some maracas in Mexico.

Traveling the world was so much fun and I love how I can always spin the Kid Wonder boxes into our homeschool curriculum. We will be traveling the world all week from the comfort of our home! I just love all of the Kid Wonder boxes and highly recommend them to anyone with children! Perfect way to have fun and learn all at once, what could be better?

KidloLand App Review

KidloLand is an educational app for children between the ages of 1-5 years. This app is filled with fun and educational activities to get your little ones mind going and keep them entertained! There are over 400+ nursery rhymes, games, songs, and story books. Your children will have fun learning numbers, colors, shapes, ABCs, animals all within this one app.

I love that this app has everything we could need all in one app. We no longer need to have an app for learning numbers and another for learning shapes, this one app has all of their learning needs. Kidloland makes it easy for your child to navigate the app and you know that anything they click on within the app is safe.

My girls, ages 3.5 and 2 years, are crazy about this app! We love it so much that we have downloaded the app on both the tablet and iPad, so the girls are each able to play and learn together. They love being able to interact with the stories and make them come alive by tapping on the screen.

You can unlock unlimited content for $4.99/month, $24.99/6months, or $39.99/year. There is always something new to explore within the app! Countless educational adventures are ahead for your child with KidloLand. It is truly a must have app!

Let’s Play Animal Hospital Kid Wonder Box

The other day the girls and I all went to grab the mail together and opened up the mailbox to a big surprise! Our Let’s Play Animal Hospital from Kid Wonder had arrived and boy were we beyond excited to dive right into this box!

While the girls emptied the box I started getting even more excited! This box was a little bit special to me because I was a veterinary technician before I became a SAHM (stay at home mom) and somedays I miss clinic life. I was able to watch the girls become veterinarians and all on their own they took turns examining their patient “Joey” the doggie.

Each box has several activities inside and each active includes all supplies needed to complete them, can you say winning?! Finally an activity that doesn’t involve me sitting down thinking we are all setup to play and nope, I forgot the pencil or tape, etc. We can open up our Kid Wonder Box and know we are ready for fun! No mommy running all over the house to find what we need!

The girls had so much fun with the animal hospital box and loved pretending to be vets! Taking x-rays, putting bandaids on Joeys ouches, painting fun, putting together their own stethoscope, and getting to wear their very own veterinarian shirt with their personalized name badge were just some of the many highlights of this box!

I highly recommend any box from Kid Wonder to anyone with children between the ages of 3-6 years. If your child love animals they will love pretending to be a veterinarian! Let’s Play Animal Hospital has activities that allow your little ones to set up your own clinic, play dress-up, practice suture skills, learn all about animal anatomy, setup and take their own x-rays, and give their furry friend a check-up. If your children aren’t really into animals don’t worry, Kid Wonder has a box to suit everyone, so be sure to check them out!

Childproofing with Dreambaby Safety Products

Dreambaby was kind enough to send us a box filled with some of their safety products. We were very ready to get our new place childproofed after moving in, but with everything that you need to protect your child from, we found our heads spinning with all the products out there. Thank goodness we came across dreambaby, they have every product we needed for our girls safety (and so much more).

The refrigerator latch has saved used hundreds in spoiled groceries! Our youngest is now able to open the fridge, but usually will forget to close it. For the most part we would catch this, but one day we didn’t! Needless to say we came home to the fridge wide open and all of our food had already gone bad, that won’t be happening again! This latch attaches with adhesive making for easy application and removal.

Anything adhesive is perfect when renting and these adhesive safety latches make childproofing easy! Our girls are always into something they shouldn’t be, but with these latches I am able to keep them out of our cabinets and drawers! It’s nice knowing they can’t get into the glassware or anything else they shouldn’t be! Easy to use with just one push of a finger you can pull open the drawer or cabinet.

One of my favorite products would have to be the door stopper, so simple yet so genius! If you have children, you know they love to slam doors and on occasion a finger is bound to end up jammed in there. It is the worst and I know every parent fears this. Thanks to the door stoppers, I no longer have to worry when my girls are running room to room trying to slam doors that will no longer slam, momwin!

The adhesive mag locks with key are by far my husband’s favorite dreambaby safety product we own! We love that we are able to attach these with adhesive strips since we are currently renting, will make for easy removal and no holes for us to fill in! We placed them on all of our drawers in the kitchen and keep the unlock key close by for quick unlocking, makes life a breeze! The girls can no longer get into that junk drawer or knives, keeps this mama sane!

EZY-check multi-use latch makes keeping our toilets closed easy! No more things thrown into the potty or large amounts of toilet paper flushed down! Our potties are now safe from the dangers of our children, they seriously wanted to meet the plumber it seemed like! These latches are easy to unlock when in a hurry and can be used several ways.

Strollerbuddy StrollAway over the door stroller hanger is a huge game changer in the small living world! It is able to support the weight of our massive double stroller and free up some serious room for us in our garage. So easy to use, all you do is hang it over the top of any door and it’s ready to go!

If you haven’t already checked out dreambaby I’m sure you will be after reading this! They have so many amazing products, not just child safety items either! Be sure to check them out!

Ashtonbee Products the Whole Family Will Love

The girls are always excited when packages arrive at our home, but are always more excited when they realize it’s something for them. Today was no different, they helped me open our box of goodies from Ashtonbee and were beyond ready to rip into everything! We put the Height Growth Chart up and the girls quickly started counting off the numbers. I showed them how to stand to get their height marked and they played back and forth measuring each other’s height. This height chart is portable and easy to write on, a must have for renters or even parents not wanting to mark the walls.The Corn Teething Set was a huge hit with both girls. Our oldest loved chewing on it even though she doesn’t really need a teether. Our youngest has the worst time with teething and these corn teethers are her favorite. She can get them back on her gums far enough for those back teeth that are coming in and just loves the soft rubber teeth which are perfect for massaging her gums. The Stackable Suction Bowls have to be my favorite! Isabel is such a messy eater and almost every snack ends up on the floor. These suction bowls actually hold up against her, she can’t figure out how to get them off the table #momwin!They even make the perfect portions for mom snack time and come in three different sizes. Dishwasher safe which is a must for this mama! All around win with these bowls!{ The adorable dresses the girls are wearing are from Chic Bubs Boutique. Harper is wearing the Tribal Cutaway Dress and Isabel is in the Rita Cutaway Dress. I can’t say enough great things about the owner, Dee, she is the sweetest and kindest to work with. Make sure you check out her shop and be sure to use code vegas15 for 15% off. }
