Multicolor Kid Personalized Book from Flattenme


I was recently given the opportunity to review flattenme's new personalized book, called "Multicolored Kid," with my little one. Brandon sure loves books. He was very happy when he saw this book and noticed his own name. The personalized book made him feel extra special. We read the book together for his bedtime story. Personalized books and toys make the perfect Christmas gift. And it's a fantastic keepsake!

DESCRIPTION:

What's a better way to tell your child that they contain all the beautiful colors of the rainbow than with a personalized book from flattenme! Whether it's red for their love, white for their courage, or blue for their imagination, this personalized book let's the reader know that they are a special child and loved through and through.

Parents will love that custom books featuring your child's name throughout the story encourage interest in reading at a very early age. The rollicking prose makes the story fun and engaging, naturally building the reader's vocabulary and interest in books.

Hasbro Games & Family Happiness

Did you know that 76% of families aren’t satisfied with the amount of quality time they’re spending together? And 61% admit to having a hard time disconnecting from tech devices. What’s a family to do? Host a game night!

According to a recent survey from Hasbro Games, 91% of families who make the time to play games together report that game playing sessions give their family mood a positive boost. Dr. Christine Carter, a happiness expert, sociologist and parent educator based out of UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, assisted with the survey and shared some tips on how families can make the most out of family time -- whenever we’re able to schedule it! Please see full press release at the end of this e-mail for tips, quotes and more.

"It's stunning that 96% of families who play games together say that they feel close, said Dr. Christine Carter, a happiness expert, sociologist and parent educator based out of UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, who assisted with the survey. “Even though today’s families are crazy-busy, they still want to feel close-knit, and they long for quality time together. This research shows that family game nights once or even twice a week are one way close families connect with each other.”

In addition to positively boosting a family’s mood, playing games as a family teaches crucial skills. Of those polled, 70 percent of parents said they hoped their children learn lessons in teamwork when playing games, followed closely by parents who hoped their kids learn sportsmanship or problem solving. Games like Monopoly, Scrabble, and Game of Life, the three most popular games among families polled, provide opportunities for kids to learn these skills and others, such as strategy, communication and compromise. Interestingly, the survey also found that the majority of parents (68 percent) go easy on their kids or let them win while playing games together, even though they also said that they do look to games to help teach important life lessons.

The constant distraction of email, texting, and social media is clearly impacting family time together. It’s become much harder for parents to create technology-free time with their kids; 61 percent of families have a hard time disconnecting from tech devices to focus on each other. Dr. Carter recommends that parents and kids alike turn OFF their smart phones, iPads, and computers for at least 20 minutes each night during dinner, and that they leave them off for the duration of game night. Leave devices in another room altogether, so that you aren’t tempted to live-tweet your family game of Twister. “Even though it can seem harmless to read a quick email or shoot off a text while other family members take their turns, it isn’t,” Dr. Carter says. “Tuning into a device communicates to your family that you aren’t fully present, that you can’t patiently wait your turn and still be engaged, or that there is something more interesting and important that you'd rather be doing.”

In order to make the most out of family time whenever families are able to schedule it, Dr. Carter recommends the following strategies:

Extend dinner by 20 minutes to include a family game – Sixty-three percent of respondents said that the easiest time of day for them to schedule family time is between 5pm-7pm. Knowing this, try to extend family dinner time by 20 minutes so that you can fit in some face-to-face game play around the table. This game time will boost family mood and teach kids numerous life lessons. Then clean up as a family, too – the losing team does the dishes!

• Schedule it – Decide in advance which day of the week will be your weekly family game night. Use stickers or a colored marker to help make the chosen night stand out on the calendar and then be consistent, so that family game night becomes a ritual that is anticipated by the whole family.

• Don’t keep score or automatically let kids win – Although rivalries can be really fun (47 percent of those polled said the fiercest rivalries were between parents and kids during family game play) they can obscure the benefits of family game night. Once everyone is enjoying the process and fun of playing games together—without obsessing over who is winning or losing—then go back to keeping score to teach the important skill of winning and losing gracefully.

• Have something for everyone – Make sure your home has a selection of games that work for everyone in your family, no matter their age—and don’t feel compelled to play games that bore you. Family game night can be fun for everyone. There are games that are engaging for adults that even little kids can play, like Operation, Monopoly and Scrabble, which are perfect for kids 8 and up, and can also be fun for the whole family.

• Be the fun family in your neighborhood – As kids get older, time with their peers becomes more important to them than time with their family. Don’t let these priorities conflict! Instead, encourage kids to invite a friend or two to come to your family game night. Let the teens choose the food and the music (but check their smart phones and devices at the door!). On weekends, plan for game night extensions, allowing teens to continue play without parents and younger siblings.

Win a Power Rangers Aluminum Scooter


One of the hottest products for your holiday gift guide is the POWER RANGERS MEGAFORCE.  Kids would love to get their hands on action figures, bike, games, clothes, scooter and more.  Both of our kids love the Power Rangers.  They watch episodes on television everyday.  Our kids enjoy the show.  They can act like a Power Rangers by play fighting.   It all about the kids having fun!



Here's what Jyla's Three Of Us blog have to say about it...

"Saban Brands sent us one of their POWER RANGERS MEGAFORCE Aluminum Scooter.  The scooter is for kids ages 5+.  Our son came home from school and saw the box.  He opened it up and was so excited to get the scooter.  He couldn't wait to open it up.  It makes us happy to see him smile.  He took the scooter and started riding it around the house.  I pulled the locking lever up to open the scooter.  The handle bars have to be put in and holds in place.  It's great to fold and put away when not in use." 

With the holidays fast approaching, I think this would make the perfect gift for any child.


"David loves the POWER RANGERS he wants to be the red one.  Look at him go and have fun with the scooter."

Baby Bullet Complete Baby Food Making System {Review & Giveaway}


The Baby Bullet has all the power and convenience of the Original Magic Bullet, but now you don't have to make baby's food where you make your margaritas and salsa. With the all NEW baby blend blade you can make and store fresh, healthy, delicious foods that are perfect for EVERY stage of development. The kit comes with power base, batch bowl, baby blend blade, milling blade, easy pop silicone batch tray, 6-date dial storage cups, spatula, 1 short cup, 1 stay fresh resealable lid and tip proof tray, user manual, pocket nutritionist and recipe book.

This kit is great for saving time in making your homemade baby food and smoothies. And it is so much cheaper than getting the store-bought, jarred baby food. Most of the time, I like to give my little one fresh and all-natural homemade foods because you don't know what kind or how much of preservatives are put in the jarred baby foods out there. That's why I decided to make my own purees from fresh fruits and vegetables. My son loves to drink smoothies.

I love using this blender. It's light & compact and I can easily carry it in the box to my parent's place or even when traveling.


The Baby Bullet short cups are the perfect size for the right amount of food just for the little one during the week. The storage cups are easy to clean and use. The silicone freezer trays can be used to freeze extra purees, make iced fruit cubes or mini popsicles. Kids love mini ice pops.


Features & Benefits:

  • Refrigerate or freeze so you always have fresh baby food to serve

Enter to Win a Tady Tote

tady-tote-giveaway-event 

Welcome to the Tady Tote Giveaway event! 
Hosted by Happy Mothering 

When I heard about Tady Tote, I checked them out and thought these were adorable.  With Christmas just around the corner, I’m on the lookout for unique gift ideas and these would make the perfect gift for my new mommy friends as well as for family.

I’m excited to share that two (2) readers will win the Tady Tote style of their choice (List Price: $98)!

Tady-Tote-Styles


If you haven’t seen them yet, Tady Tote transforms from a plush, cushioned mat to a bag—instantly! From tummy time to preschool and beyond, a child will love playing, napping and cuddling on this comfy mat.

Tady-Tote-Uses

Tady Tote provides a large (52” across), cushioned area for your baby to play on, have tummy time, nap or roll around both indoors and outdoors. It is water resistant, making it ideal for play dates, park outings or anywhere you need a clean place to sit and play. And, since it’s cushioned, it’s even great for hard floors.


It’s also quick and easy to clean up because you can leave all of your items on the mat, then simply fold it back into a bag and go. Two roomy pockets let you store necessities and the Tady Tote can be folded closed without having to remove your child’s toys.

Camo-Collage-2

You can even remove the plush teddy bear blanket, which your child is sure to love snuggling with, enabling you to launder it alone or with the entire Tady Tote.


The Tady Tote's patented design was created by a mother of two from Tucson, Arizona, and it has undergone rigorous safety testing by a government-accredited lab. It's the only product of its kind, making it an ideal and unique Christmas or baby shower gift.

"Being The Best Me!" Book Series {Review}




I have always loved the children's book series from Free Spirit Publishing. Their books not only teaches adults effective techniques and positive parenting, it also teaches young children values and help develop good behaviour. At the same time, it's fun and educational for the kids to learn to read and understand it themselves.

Being the Best Me! is a one-of-a-kind character-development series. Each book in the series helps children learn, understand, and develop attitudes and character traits that strengthen self-confidence and a sense of purpose. Children will relate to the engaging illustrations, real-life situations, and easy-to-understand examples. Each book focuses on specific attitudes or character traits—such as optimism, courage, resilience, imagination, personal power, decision-making, or work ethics. Also included are discussion questions, games, activities, and additional information adults can use to reinforce the concepts children are learning.

Each book focuses on specific attitudes or character traits—such as optimism, courage, resilience, imagination, personal power, decision-making, or work ethics. Also included are discussion questions, games, activities, and additional information adults can use to reinforce the concepts children are learning. Filled with diversity, these read-aloud books will be welcome in school, home, and childcare settings.

Be Positive!

A sense of optimism is a key ingredient to success in life. Guide young children to develop a positive outlook and discover how the choices they make can lead to feeling happy and capable. This friendly, encouraging book introduces preschool and primary-age children to ways of thinking and acting that will help them feel good about themselves and their lives, stay on course when things don’t go their way, and contribute to other people’s happiness, too.



Feel Confident!

Empower children to recognize their individual worth and develop confidence in themselves, their abilities, and the choices they make. Children learn that they can speak up, expect and show respect, try new things, and believe in themselves. Confidence-building skills of accepting yourself, asking for what you need, making decisions, solving problems, and communicating are also discussed. Young children will respond to the true-to-life situations and colorful illustrations.
