Barney: Let’s Go To The Moon-Review and Giveaway!

My sons are REALLY into rockets these days so when I had the chance to review Let’s Go to the MoonI jumped at the chance!

About the movie:

Barney® and his friends discover that the sky is not the limit when you use your imagination in the all-new release Barney®: Let’s Go To The Moon, arriving on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand January 8, 2013 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment and HIT Entertainment.

My thoughts:

To be completely honest, I’ve never been a big Barney fan, but this movie was great!  Both of my boys were glued to the screen to see Batnie and his friends make a rocketship  and fly it to the moon!  They have requested it as their “movie night” DVD several times since they viewed it for the first time!  I will warn you-the songs on the DVD will get stuck in your head!  This movie was a lot of fun to watch and has become one of my children’s favorites!

My Whole Foods Citrus Showdown–Did Clementines or Satsumas Win?

Chances are you’ve heard (and eaten) a Clementine.  But have you ever heard of Satsumas?  I certainly had not before this showdown!  They are what you may call “Clementine’s Unknown Cousin”. Both of these fruits belong to the mandarin family and have a lot of similarities, but there are a few distinct differences.

Both citrus fruits are seedless and easy to peel and very similar in appearance! In fact we had to be very careful keeping them separate so we wouldn’t mix them up!  While the Satsumas have a bold taste, the Clementines are know for being simply sweet and having a less acidic finish.  We made two separate recipes to compare these two fruits and invited over some of our friends for a holiday dinner to have a broader range of opinions!

In Corner #1:  Clementines.  To showcase this fruit we used the recipe Green Beans with Pecans and Clementine Dressing

This recipe was very easy to make and everyone really enjoyed it. I was pleasantly surprised that the a couple of the kids enjoyed the green beans with this dressing! I love Clementines but felt like the dressing was a bit too strong.

In Corner #2:  Satsumas.  We created the recipe Spinach Salad with Aduki Beans and Satsuma Vinaigrette for this showdown.

This recipe was definitely a crowd favorite and when compared to the green beans, this recipe won hands down.  We did not include the Aduki beans but it still turned out to have a lot of flavor.  If you want to try this recipe I suggest leaving the dressing on the side when serving.  We combined it with the spinach and I wasn’t able to enjoy it the next day.

Here is what each dish looked like on our dinner plates:

And the winner is…….

Satsumas!  Everyone voted and the winner was the Satsuma dressing-hands down! This was a little shock for the “unknown” to be the winner!

This is the perfect time of the year for citrus fruits and I suggest if you have a Whole Foods store near you to head on down and do your own Citrus Showdown!  I’m anxious to see if you agree with our winner!

My Owner’s Box Review

My husband and I have been discussing redoing my son’s room since it is still in his “baby” theme.  We have been wracking our brains to come up with a theme that would grow with him and not need to be changed in another 4 years.  The obvious choice seemed to be to make it sports related.  Shortly after this decision I was lucky enough to find the company My Owner’s Box.

MyOwnersBox™ is a new company offering officially licensed Major League Baseball™ storage products that can de-clutter and organize any child’s bedroom, college dorm room, home or office space.  The company has been developing the new line of products for two years to perfect the storage functionality and quality of the embroidered team logos.

Finding this company has helped guide us in the design process of the room and also in the organization!  I am a bit nutty about having things organized and the 6 cube organizer really helped with this issue!  I also was sent the fabric storage drawers which are perfect for all of Will’s stuffed animals, trains, and cars!  Even better? They fit IN the cube organizer!  In addition we ordered the stack-able fabric storage cubes and I am super impressed with their stability and quality.  A whole train track can fit inside of one! We are using the other one for his favorite books and there are absolutely no issues with their ability to hold the weight of the books!

As you can see in the picture above, we chose the theme Boston Red Sox…but these items come with the logo of any of your favorite Major League Baseball teams-or you can just order plain fabric ones!  I love ours so much I am probably going to be ordering a few more….that is after I get done with the rest of the room!

Do you have a sports themed room in your home? What team did you choose?  If you’re looking for organizational items to go along with your room, My Owner’s Box is the way to go!

Easy-to-use, these entertaining DVDs and iPad apps get results, as documented in case studies by several school districts.

Are you behind on ordering your holiday cards?  I have been planning my sons’ birthdays and as soon as that’s over this weekend, I am concentrating full force on Christmas-and that includes ordering my holiday cards!

One site I am sure you’ve heard about is Tiny Prints.  I am very excited about their 2012 Holiday Collection! We always try to do a “fun” holiday card and Tiny prints definitely offers modern designs that will help with our goal.  I also really love their new Premium DoubleThick™ Matte Paper-it really adds something special to holiday cards when recipients open them!

Twister Dance Review

How fun is this game?! Not only do you get to listen to top songs, but you also get to dance and have a great time with family and friends!

Twister Dancewill help learn dance moves by following the lights from the TWISTER dance console and dancing on the traditional TWISTER spots.

You can learn dances to:

· “Till the World Ends,” TWISTER REMIX, performed by Britney Spears.

· “Whip My Hair,” performed by Willow Smith.

· “We R Who We R,” performed by Ke$ha.

· “Cupid Shuffle,” performed by Cupid.

· And an exclusive track, “Caught Up in a Twister.”

Each dance can be performed at 3 levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced so no worries if you aren’t the next person to be seen on Broadway!

I have to say this game is just PURE FUN!  It is perfect for any child who loves to dance and I can only imagine what a hit it would be at any birthday party or sleepover!  As a mom to boys, I really like how durable the spots are since games sometimes don’t survive too long in my home!  Another favorite feature of this game is that I can plug in my MP3 player into the game and pick and choose what songs the kids dance and party to!  Bottom line-if you want your kids to stop sitting in front of the TV or quit playing video games, this is your solution!  Perfect for a rainy day or any time when your kids need to fit in some physical activity-in a FUN way!

Twister Danceis part of Kmart’s Fab 15 list and can be purchased at your local Kmart!

Disclosure:  I was provided a Twister Dance in order to complete this review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Pirate’s Booty Snacks-Review and Giveaway!

I have to admit that when a friend suggested PIrate’s Booty Snacks to me for the boys-I had never heard of them!  They sounded yummy though so I just had to try some!

Since the boys are having a pirate themed birthday party, I immediately thought to write the Pirate’s Booty company and request some samples.  Not only did they agree, they offered a giveaway to my readers too!  We’ll get back to that in a minute.  I have to tell you about these amazing snacks first!

When I got my samples I was thrilled that they tasted delicious AND they were gluten free.  We are attempting to eliminate gluten as much as possible in our house so these snacks were perfect.  Even better?  Both the boys and my husband I enjoyed them-that’s a rare thing!  They definitely satisfy my need for “crunchy” snacks and the boys love anything with cheese so Pirate’s Booty is a win win snack!  Here’s a little more about them:

The snack table is the holiday hot spot at parties!  Make this year a little healthier by swapping out greasy fried potato chips or sugar-laden sweets for baked, all-natural Pirate’s Booty.

Pirate’s Booty has half the fat and fewer calories than regular fried potato chips and less fat and fewer calories than traditional candy (plus zero grams of sugar).  Also, Pirate’s Booty is gluten, peanut and tree-nut free, so it’s great for guests with these common food allergies.  Pirate’s Booty is also made without trans-fats and ingredients you can’t pronounce.

Pirate’s Booty is available at a retailer near you in family-friendly sizes and convenient multipacks!

I can not wait to see how the kids and parents react to these snacks at the birthday party!  I already mentioned trying them on my Facebook page and comments were all positive-apparently everyone loves Pirate’s Booty!

Now for the yummy giveaway!  One lucky reader will win a case of Pirate’s Booty snacks-that’s (12) 4 oz bags of snacks!  Plus there will be other Pirate swag in the box!  It’s super easy to enter-you just have to choose one (or ALL) of the following entries.

Review: Discount Party Supplies-Save Money & Party At The Same Time!

While most people are busy planning for Christmas, I have a more important party before that-my two boys will be having their joint birthday party in less than a month!  You can imagine how hard it is to plan a big party for 2 boys just weeks before Christmas-talk about exercising my frugal habits and budget strategies to the extreme!

One way I save money is by buying party at online stores that offer BIG discounts.  A favorite site of mine is Discount Party Supplies. I have used this site for the past 2 years and have been extremely pleased both times.  The prices are hard to beat, they always have the latest themes, and the customer service rocks!  I never pay extra to get expedited shipping and the supplies come extremely fast and in terrific shape!  You should have seen my boys faces when I showed them this box of goodies for the party!

While I am elbow deep planning their pirate party, I am also remembering past birthday parties.  One of my favorite parties was one we held at a Fire Station.  We were able to rent a room in a fire station and the kids got to tour the emergency vehicles and learn all about fire safety.  People are still talking about this party!  I didn’t know about Discount Party Supplies back then, but I sure wish I did!  Just look at their Fire Fighter supplies below!

From firefighter hats to flashlights and more-you’ll find everything to satisfy your little firefighter!  My favorite item from this set has got to be the fire extinguisher water guns-so cute and I LOVE that how they fit the theme-what kid wouldn’t love that in their favor bag?!

Of course I have shopped Discount Party Supplies for boys themes, but have no fear if you’re a mom of girls.  They have plenty of themes for girls as well!  Bottom line, I love this site and can’t say enough positive things about it!

Thomas & Friends Blue Mountain Mystery Review & Giveaway

My sons both adore Thomas the Train.  I recently had the chance to review the newest movie Thomas & Friends: Blue Mountain Mystery the Movieand I have to say this is probably my favorite Thomas movie ever.  The quality of the movie just seemed more modern and I really loved the music from this movie!  My boys were especially excited to meet some of Thomas’s new friends in the movie, especially “Luke”!  As always, this Thomas movie had important lessons to learn such as teamwork and being a true friend.  I definitely give this movie a Momondealz “thumbs up”!

Halloween Express Costume Review + Your Chance To Win $75 AND Pick My Costume!


Wow!  Can you believe Halloween is only a month away?!  When I looked at the calendar and saw how soon it is, I was shocked-and immediately starting asking my 3 year old what he would like to be this year..and of course got a gazillion answers.  So I did what most modern parents do, I hit the internet.  After searching several websites, I found Halloween Express and fell in love!  They have a HUGE collection to choose from and their prices rock!  They even have a clearance section on the site which of course I had to check out!

After allowing my son to shop around a bit on the site, he chose Superman.  Our family usually dresses up all together so I started brainstorming with my husband on other superheros and decided that my husband would be Batman, I would be Batgirl or Super Woman, and my youngest son could be Robin (Daddy’s little sidekick). Since I am still undecided on which female I will be, we just purchased the products needed for all the “boys”.

I could not be more pleased with Halloween Express!  Not only were our costumes and accessories affordable, they shipped and arrived in record time (I’m talking like 3 days and I didn’t pay for express shipping)!  They look and fit great, but feel awesome too!  No scratchy, cheap costumes here!  My husband’s mask was even comfortable and super easy for him to breathe out of (this can definitely be a problem with some masks) and I loved that both boys’ belts were not connected to the outfit but came separate.  Since my oldest is so thin, connected belts don’t help us much but when I can tie it myself, it helps “tighten up” the entire costume!

How would you like to win $75 of your own to purchase some Halloween gear?  Well the great news is you can-and it’s SUPER Easy!  Here’s how:

1.  Visit Halloween Express and check out Super Woman and Bat Girl.  Leave a comment on this post with your vote on my costume-should I be Super Woman or Bat Girl?
2.  Follow Momondealz via Facebook.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
3.  Follow Momondealz via Twitter.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
4.  Check out my “Kids Frugal Fun” series and let me know what craft is your favorite!

You can complete one of all of the above entries, just be sure to leave a comment on THIS POST. Leaving one on Facebook will not enter you into the contest!

Since Halloween is only a month away, this contest will only last until Saturday, October 6th at 11:59 pm. The winner will be emailed on Sunday and have 24 hours to respond before another winner is selected!  Good Luck!

Review: Rubbermaid LunchBlox Sandwich Kit

Are you planning on packing your child’s lunch this school year?  Are you a savvy saver who packs their own lunch for work each day?  If you said yes to either of these questions, you are going to want to check out Rubbermaid LunchBlox – Sandwich Kit!

The Rubbermaid LunchBlox is designed to fit all of your lunch needs into one handy and organized stack.  The sandwich kit comes with 4 containers that all fit together-and get this-they LOCK together  and also lock with the Blue Ice included to keep everything cool and ready to eat!  Just look how well they stay together (I am holding my husband’s lunch UPSIDE DOWN)!

This product is marketed to be a sandwich kit but I actually used it to pack my husband’s lunch side items. It held his broccoli, rice, carrots and dip perfectly and was the exact size to stick his sandwich on top of so that his entire lunch fit perfectly in his lunch box.  Since he has a rather large appetite, I need to pack a bit more for him!  But I can definitely see where this would be exactly the right portion sizes for a school aged child!  Here are some other features of the LunchBlox that I think you will love:

  • Secure lid seal
  • BPA-free
  • Microwave, Dishwasher, and Freezer Safe
  • Sandwich container holds regular and specialty bread
  • Sandwich Kit includes 2 Snack Containers, 1 Side Container, 1 Sandwich Container and 1 Medium Blue Ice


If you’re looking to purchase your own, visit Rubbermaid and grab a coupon for $1.50 off your own LunchBlox sandwich kit-it’s definitely a handy item to have for back to school!

AllerMates-A Hip Way To Show Allergies!

Do you have kids with allergies?  I have one friend whose son is deathly allergic to peanuts.  Unfortunately many children suffer with allergies and parents live in constant fear someone will unknowinly expose their child to something that could devastate their family.  AllerMates has create a product to help with this anxiety-and one that kids will allergies LOVE!

AllerMates has created kid friendly (adored) products that help spread allergy awareness.  Their products include T-shirts, lunch bag, dogtags, charms, and most recently, the very popular wrist bands.  Their items all feature colorful and fun AllerMates-characters that portray your child’s allergy. My favorites are “P-Nutty”, “Pint”, and “Crabby”. Can you guess which allergies they portray? Here are the answers plus the whole list of zany characters!

P. Nutty (Peanut Allergy)
Nutso (Nut Allergy)
Professor Wheatley (Gluten / Wheat Allergy)
Pint (Milk Allergy)
Eggie (Egg Allergy)
Crabby (Shellfish Allergy)
Super-Cillin (Penicillin Allergy)
Bizzy (Insect Sting Allergy)
Dr. Strangeglove (Latex Allergy)
Drift (Pollen Allergy)
Detective Fin (Fish Allergy)
Soy Cool (Soy Allergy)
Teeni Tahini (Sesame Allergy)
Nine (Cat Allergy)

I was sent the  “P-Nutty” wristband to review and gave it to my friend whose son has a terrible nut allergy.  He already has some other allergy identifiers but his mom loved the look and feel of the bracelet so she rushed it home to show him.  She immediately emailed me to let me know he thought it was so cool and awesome~so much so he insisted on wearing it to bed!  I was aware that he also has other allergies and his mom asked if there were bracelet that could hold more characters.  I was happy to report that AllerMates has the multi-allergy wristband that can hold  up to 6 charms!  Since my son has seasonal allergies (that people often mistake for a cold or sickness) I requested the pollen allergy wristband with the character “Drift” on it to check out as well~My 3 year old thinks he is hot stuff wearing the wristband!

One of my most favorite things about AllerMates is their affordability!  The individual wristbands are only $6.99 but if you need the multi-allergy one, it’s only $5.99 and each charm is a low $3.50!

How would you like to win an Allermate?  Here’s your chance!  AllerMates has given me a peanut wristband to giveaway.

Rubbermaid Clean & Dry Plunger-Review and Giveaway

No on e likes to discuss why you need a plunger, but the bottom line is, everyone needs one! 

Rubbermaid asked me to review their new and revolutionary Clean and Dry Plunger and I figured-why not?  I’ve got two boys who frequently think it’s a good idea to put items in the toilet so having a “good” plunger in the house is kind of a neccessity! 

So are you like me and wondering what in the world could be so special about a plunger?  Here are some descriptions from Rubbermaid:

The head and pole of the plunger is coated in NeverWet™ nanotech coating that:

  • Repels water, germs and other things Like car wax, the water beads up and rolls off instantly
  • Minimizes the spread of germs and keeps consumer’s homes cleaner and more sanitary
  • Won’t drip on the floor after use
  • Head plunges effectively and maintains NeverWet coating for thousands of cycles


So, does it work? 

In a word, YES!  I have to say that I am pretty shocked by the plunger’s effectiveness~it really does not drip!  As a germaphobe, I am really loving this plunger! 

The plunger will be available for purchase at Meijer, The Home Depot, Menards, Target, Wal-Mart and at SRP of $12.99.  However, one of my readers can WIN a free Clean and Dry Plunger themselves.  Here are the ways to enter, you can choose one or all of the ways:

1. Leave a comment below telling me the most unusual item you or your child have dropped in the toilet (Mine would be a toy hammer).
2. Follow Momondealz via Facebook. Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
3. Follow Momondealz via Twitter. Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
4. Follow Momondealz via RSS. Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
