Bathtime Fun with the Nuby Splash N’ Catch Fishing Set

Bath time is one of my daughter’s favorite activities of the day, so I am always looking for fun new toys to keep her occupied. I find that a lot of toys lose her interest fairly easily as she gets older. One toy that hasn’t lost her interest is the Nuby Splash N’ Catch Fishing Set! Perfect for babies 18 months and older, the Nuby Splash N’ Catch Fishing Set comes with four colorful characters to catch with an adorable fishing net. Not only is this toy super fun, but it also helps Kinsley with her hand-eye coordination! As the toys float around the tub, she tries her hardest to get them all into the net at the same time! I usually link the four toys together so that she is able to scoop them all up at once, but sometimes I swish them around the tub and hide some under bubbles to make the “fishing” a bit more fun.  One of my favorite thing about this toy, is that it is so much more than just a bath toy! Kinsley really loves using this when we are outside in the pool! The Nuby Splash N’ Catch Bathtime Fishing Set is such a cute, inexpensive way to keep my daughter entertained for hours!

Nuby Splash N’ Catch Bathtime Fishing Set can be found on Amazon.

Shining Star by Starpath Dolls

My daughter Kinsley loves playing with baby dolls, but most dolls lose her interest after a few weeks. That all changed when her Starpath Doll arrived! Starpath Dolls are 18-inch lifelike dolls that come in a variety of ethnic backgrounds. When paired with their personalized chapter books, Starpath Dolls encourage girls aged 5-9 to escape into the magical world of their stories. I let Kinsley choose her own doll out of the four doll options avaliable. Since each doll has her own personality, Kinsley was able to pick a doll that matched her perfectly. The dolls included Morning Star, Shining Star, Wishing Star, and Wandering Star.  Kinsley decided to go with the Shining Star doll because she looks and sounds just like her! Kinsley is very bubbly and playful, and also has no issues making friends. I was very satisfied with her selection.20170430_181600.jpg

Starpath Girls’ Personalities:

Morning Star– “Shines so bright, her smile lights up the sky. She’s happy and fun in every way and ready for any adventure that comes her way.”

Shining Star– “Bubbly and playful, makes friends wherever she goes. With her twinkling laugh and loyal ways she can be counted on for a great time and amazing memories that last.”

Wishing Star– “Tell this friend all your dreams and secrets. Life is full of new opportunities and adventures and she is a friend you can trust with all your ideas.”

Wandering Star– “Curiosity always leads her on an exploration of nethings to learn and exciting discoveries. Silly anmischievous she alwayfinds hidden treasures anmany amazing wonders.”

 Once we selected a doll, we had the option to make her personalized Starpath Doll book. There were two books to choose from which included “A Fairy Tale Gone Wrong” and “Tiger Magic”. As a mother, I found it adorable that this was an option. I could place my daughter along with her new best friend right into their very own story! My daughter selected “A Fairy Tale Gone Wrong” and was extremely eager to personalize it. When creating her book Kinsley was asked to provide information like her favorite color, her best friend’s name, her hair lenght/color, and her eye color. We were even asked to include our dog’s name as well as Kinsley’s nicknames for her grandparents! I was amazed at how much detail the book required to really put Kinsley directly into the story!

Personalized Book Story Lines:

A Fairy Tale Gone Wrong- “Making the exact same birthday wish, you and your best friend accidentally find yourselves inside the Cinderella fairy tale! Now it is your job to keep the story on track so Cinderella will wind up with her prince and you can return home safely to your family. A visit by the Fairy Godmother, a trip to the Royal Ball, and a ride on a magic swan await you on your adventure.”

Tiger Magic- “A mysterious cat leads you and your best friend on a magical journey to the jungles in India. Suddenly, it is up to you to protect an endangered tiger cub from poachers who want to capture it for money. You will also make an Indian friend and learn about her life in a village, and what she finds important. “

It has been a few days since we received our Starpath Doll (now renamed Mia), and Kinsley hasn’t left her side. Everything we do, Mia comes along for the ride. Seeing Kinsley interact with her doll is absolutely adorable. She is able to brush Mia’s hair, and change her clothes which makes the doll so much more life-like! I plan on purchasing a few additional outfits from the Starpath Doll website as well as the swan accessory which matches Kinsley’s personalized book. I am so thrilled that Starpath Dolls are now available. These dolls are perfect and girls around the world are able to relate to their wide variety of backgrounds! Every girl deserves a best friend, and Starpath Dolls are exactly what they need!

Y Glider Deluxe from Y-Volution

My daughter Kinsley loves being outdoors, so I try to find her new activities as often as possible. When my nephew showed up to our house with his new scooter, Kinsley began BEGGING for one of her own. Since she is only three, traditional scooters were too big and she was unable to control her movements. Thankfully I quickly found the Y Glider Deluxe from Y-Volution. The Y Glider Deluxe is a child’s scooter specially tailored to fit children aged 3 and over. Kinsley was extremely excited to get her Y Glider Deluxe, and requested that she ride it immediately. I must admit that I was a bit nervous of the outcome since she had so much trouble with the scooter we tried before. Much to my surprise, she hopped on and took off without any issues! The Y Glider Deluxe has a unique steering system which allowed Kinsley to easily control the scooter and steer it in the right direction. The fact that this scooter had three wheels was perfect because Kinsley didn’t tip over! I also found that the base was much larger than traditional scooters, which allowed Kinsley to better keep her balance. Although Kinsley hasn’t quite figured out the breaks, I love how this scooter features the easy-touch rear safety brake rather than something on the handles.  I am extremely impressed overall by the quality of this Y Glider Deluxe. Kinsley rode it around the driveway until it was time to come inside, and then cried because she wasn’t ready to pick it up! Once she outgrows this in a few years, I will definitely return to Y-Volution to purchase her a larger version!

Lil’ Lemonade Stand-Off™ from Learning Resources

Today is National Lemonade Day! We are celebrating by playing the Lil’ Lemonade Stand-Off™ game from Learning Resources! The object of this game is to re-create the  designs on the flash cards from memory. This game comes with 10 Cups, 2 Lids, 20 Coins, 30 Order cards, and 4 Lemonade stands with tops. Although this game is made for children 4+, my three year old daughter was able to play along without any assistance. I loved watching my daughter play this because I could see her using her memory and recall skills. Since this can be up to a four player game, I loved watching her compete with her cousins! They wanted to see who could get the most correct, the fastest! Obviously the older kids did much better, however she quickly improved as the game went on!  Every time she would get a card correct, she would snatch up a coin and place it in her lemonade stand. This is such a cute alternative to those boring old flip-card games!

Product Description: Make building memory skills a game! Compete to win by earning the most coins at your lemonade stand. Just draw a card, look at the order of the yellow and pink cups, and then re-create it from memory. A fun and challenging game for 2 to 4 players.

Hydro Lacrosse (Ages 5+)-  Hydro Lacrosse is a sure way to show your family your competitive side. This set can be used in the pool, in the back yard, at the beach, and anywhere you want to have a little fun. This set includes two sticks and one ball which is perfect for a one-on-one competition.  I would highly suggest purchasing more than one set so that the entire family can get in on the action! My daughter and I have had a blast playing with this set in the backyard.  It is the perfect size for both adults and children.

Hydro Spring Hoops (Ages 5+)- Perfect for the pool, Hydro Spring Hoops is a great game for the entire family. This set includes one hoop and one ball. The hoop floats perfectly on top of the water, and you never know which way it is going to float! The more everyone in the pool jumps around, the more the hoop flys across the pool! This makes the competition so much more fun!  I like that the hoop has a twist-and-fold design which makes it extremely easy to open up, or store for later. Even the kids are able to take it out and pick it up as needed without needing my help

Reactorz Playground Ball (Ages 5+)-  Featuring reactive light technology, this Reactorz Playground Ball is absolutely perfect for both daytime AND nighttime playing. With every kick or hit, the ball glows using super bright LED lights inside.  This makes it extremely easy to spot during a late night game of kickball! Since my daughter is fairly young, the textured shield around the ball makes it extremely easy for her to grip and throw. We are able to use this ball for soccer, kickball, dodgeball, and so many more family games!

Princess Chair Desk with Storage Bin from Delta Children

This Princess Chair Desk with Storage Bin from Delta Children is absolutely perfect for my daughter Kinsley.  Although it came unassembled, I was able to put this chair together on my own within about 10 minutes. I was surprised at how big it actually was (20.47″l x 22.83″w x 23.23″h). I knew it was made for 3-6 year olds, but it could easily fit children a bit older since it holds up to 50 pounds. This chair is made of extremely sturdy wood pieces, so I didn’t have to worry about my daughter breaking it or it collapsing while she is sitting in it. I originally wanted this for Kinsley so she would have a place to do her artwork and keep all of her art supplies. However, this quickly turned into her favorite place in the house! Thankfully this chair has a scratch-resistant finish because, let’s face it, kids have the capabilities to ruin just about anything (at least mine does lol). Even with some hardcore artwork and banging utensils Kinsley has not made any marks on this chair! As a mother, I love how versatile this chair is. The removable cup holder can obviously be used for drinks, but it is also perfect to hold markers and art supplies! The fabric storage bin on the bottom is perfect for keeping Kinsley’s crayons and coloring books. This makes it easier on me because I don’t always have to go and dig out her supplies for her. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who has small children. Since this adorable little chair comes in tons of designs (Frozen, Mickey Mouse, Disney Princess, Cars, SpiderMan, Dora the Explorer, Paw Patrol, Ninja Turtles, and Sesame Street) there is sure to be a design that your little one will love!

Aeromax Toys: My 1st Career Gear- Astronaut

Aeromax Toys recently released quite a few new products for their Spring 2017 line. Included in that new line was the My 1 st Career Gear Orange Astronaut Top and the Youth Size Orange Astronaut Helmet. Kinsley was beyond excited to test out her new Astronaut gear! Like most Aeromax Toys tops, the My 1 st Career Gear Orange Astronaut Top had easy to close velcro which allowed Kinsley to easily take it off and put it on herself. Printed on the top was an official NASA logo, a space shuttle logo, a commander badge, a USA flag, and and a clear pocket for placing a personalized name tag.  It was extremely realistic and Kinsley felt extremely official. The top is recommended for ages 3-6. The Astronaut Helmet features a NASA logo, a USA flag, and a moving visor. I could have also added Kinsley’s name with a personalized sticker for an additional $2.95. This helmet is made for ages 3-6, however there is an Astronaut Helmet With Sound made for older children. The fact that the visor moved really made Kinsley feel like she was a real-life astronaut ready to board her space shuttle! As a mom, I love how this set is gender-neutral. My daughter can be whatever she feels like being without being slapped with stereotypical costumes. To me this set is truly “out of this world“!

You can order the Astronaut Top and the Astronaut Helmet separately OR  Save 10% by ordering the Astronaut Set!

Counting Dino-Sorters Math Activity Set from Learning Resources

Lately my daughter and I have been focusing on learning counting skills as well as addition and subtraction. Since she is starting school this year, I wanted to make sure she was prepared. This Counting Dino-Sorters Math Activity Set from Learning Resources is such a fun way for us to work on her skills, without making it seem like a lesson! This set comes with 10 dinosaur eggs and 55 dinosaur counters. Each dinosaur counter goes into the corresponding numbered egg. As my daughter counts the eggs, she can open it up and physically see what 1 dinosaur looks like, as well as what the actual number on the egg. With this one set we are hitting on many different skills such as counting, matching, sorting, patterning, addition, and subtraction. My daughter absolutely loves her colorful little dinosaur and this is currently her most requested learning game. She has quickly caught on so quickly to the concept and I can’t wait to see how this game helps her in the long run!PicMonkey Collage.jpg

Product Description: It’s a fun way for children to learn about counting and colors…while they play hide-and-seek! These little dinos tuck away inside the eggs for surprise counting fun. Each numbered and colored egg holds a corresponding number of dinos inside, so children learn about number correspondence to!

MiO Collection from The Manhattan Toy Company

The Manhattan Toy Company is known for years of amazing toys, but their MiO collection is by far one of my favorite collections. All MiO sets are hand painted with non-toxic water based finishes and all of their people sets have extremely soft beanbag-like bodies. This entire collection is so modern and colorful. Not only are they absolutely adorable, but they are 100% safe for all children 3+ (EN71 and CPSIA certified).  We received a MiO Outdoors set, as well as a MiO People set. It is safe to say they were a huge hit in our home. 20170323_184137.jpg

As soon as we received our MiO package, my daughter Kinsley was eager to rip open the box. Our outdoors set came with two tree-like figures, a blue boy figure, and a small yellow hammock. Our people set came with one pink girl figure as well as one blue boy figure. I really loved the size of these pieces, as none of them were too small for my daughter to hold. I also really loved how soft they were. The MiO people are a bit weighted, so Kinsley didn’t have any issues standing them up or placing them exactly where she wanted them. She previously had a small collection of miniature dolls from another company, but she was unable to bend them and make them sit. It is very easy to tell that these MiO people are made with smaller children in mind. I love that the two sets we received can match perfectly with any of the other MiO sets on The Manhattan Toy Company website. I can’t wait to purchase a small house and car so we can expand her small collection since these have quickly become her favorite things to play with.
