Barbie A Fashion Fairytale

September 16, 2010

My 5 year old Eva and I have enjoyed our new movie Barbie ™ A Fashion Fairytale the last few days and she’s already drafted her letter to Santa asking for all the fun toys and accessories that go with it. A description from the back of the DVD says:
“Join Barbie ™ in a colorful, modern-day fairytale filled with fashion, friends and fun.” We certainly agree!

October 2, 2009

It’s fall, my favorite season of the year. Time to break out those sweaters, start making hot-chocolate and apple cider, and time to start dressing the little ones warmer.

Solution: Peekaru Original Babywearing Vest!

The Peekaru Original is a fleece vest that zips over a soft baby carrier to keep you and your child warm. It fits comfortably over all carriers, including Baby Bjorns, Hotslings, Ergos, Mei Tais, and Wraps.

GIVEAWAY: Zhu Zhu Pet plus hamster wheel

October 2, 2009

Zhu Zhu Pets are the next best thing (if not the best) to giving your child a cuddly hamster to love and play with. Just think…. All the fun, without the mess.

Zhu Zhu Pets Hamsters are interactive toy pets, each with their own set of over 40 sound effects, squeaks, chirps, etc.

We recently had the opportunity to play with these adorable little creatures. 10 kids between the ages of 2-6 enjoying the critters together. You might think of this as a chaotic recipe for tantrums, lack of sharing and all out problems – but it was the opposite! Each child had their own Zhu Zhu hamster to enjoy, and they all took turns playing with their new friend in the habitat. It got a little loud at times, but the sheer excitement of watching the pets scurry around, the sweet laughs and giggles, and the itty-bitty noises the hamsters make filled my living room, making the parents happy to see the wonder and joy in their kids eyes. I was impressed with these little creatures (the hamsters), they really are as fun and creative as you see in the commercials. I was surprised how little effort is needed to direct the toys, as the tracks on the habitat signaled the pets what to do and where to go. Rarely did one “get loose”, and even if it did, we didn’t have to worry about it burrowing into a wall or small space. Brilliant!

One thing I do suggest is getting rechargeable batteries for these little guys. With the inexpensive store brand batteries, they began to slow down and not run as efficiently after just a short while, but with freshly charged batteries the pets ran for hours!

WE ARE PLEASED TO OFFER ONE READER A CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THE FUN FOR YOURSELF. WE HAVE ONE ZHU ZHU PET PLUS A HAMSTER WHEEL (sold out in most stores) TO GIVEAWAY. Simply leave a comment below for your chance to win. We will use to choose a winner on November 1st. Double your chances to win by posting on your blog, twitter, facebook or website about this fun lottery, and post the link below in comments for your SECOND entry!
You can find Zhu-Zhu pets at your local toy store, online at or at fine retailers like Amazon, ToysRUs and WalMart or check back soon, as WE are hoping to start carrying these in our shop!
