Blooming Bath-Review and Giveaway

Have you heard of Blooming Bath Baby Bath? It’s a truly innovative child product that is not only adorable but functional!

Blooming Bath is a soft and cuddly way to give your baby a bath and can be used in sinks or even bath tubs!  Time to throw out the hard, plastic, and cold infant tubs!  This bath will keep your child snuggled up and allow you to clean them at the same time.  I am so sad I was not able to use this with my boys-I know it would have made bath time much easier and more pleasant for the babies.

As soon as I received the Blooming Bath I knew it was perfect.  It is so soft and I love the material that is a combination of mesh and soft fabrics.  Not only is it functional during bath time, it makes cleanup a breeze too (which is crucial to help overly tired new mommies).  You can rinse the tub out and simply hang dry it or throw it right in the dryer.  I am a huge fan of anything that can be dried in the dryer!  Even better?  It can travel with you so much easier than traditional plastic tubs.  During our baby bath days, it was always a struggle to pack either a bulky plastic tub and even the blow up tubs when traveling.  The blow up tubs seemed a great solution but we soon discovered they too were a hassle because you needed to blow them up once you arrived at your destination.  With Blooming Bath, you simply just fold it up and it will fit in just about any bag!

Blooming Bath can be purchased on the Blooming Bath Website or Amazon for $50. OR you can win one from Momondealz!  Here’s how:

If you have a little girl, chances are they know and probably love Angelina Beallerina and will love the new Ballerina Princess DVD!  My two boys love mice (yuck) but not ballerinas so I asked a friend to review the DVD.

Dancing their way through Chipping Cheddar, Angelina encounters a bad fairy, uncovers a Cinderella-like mystery, treats the king and queen to a regal performance and brings an epic tale to life on stage.

Ella’s Mommy’s thoughts: 

This DVD had numerous episodes that were fun and educational. As a parent, I like that there is a positive, lesson/message in each episode. My daughter loves Angelina and this DVD did not disappoint!

Zaycon Chicken-I NEED Chicken-Let’s Get Them Back!

I know that many of my readers have taken advantage of the amazing deal on meats from Zaycon Foods. And many of you who haven’t had the chance yet have been waiting for them to come back to Hampton Roads.

So we have waited…..left messages. ……and got nothing.

Until today.

Laura was forwarded an e-mail from a reader who finally heard back from Zaycon that as of right now they have no plans to come back to Hampton Roads. Zaycon hasn’t heard enough from us.

It’s time they hear from us. I NEED my chicken. We have been out of Zaycon chicken for a while now and it’s horrible~store bought chicken doesn’t have the same texture and definitely not the same taste!

So if you are in Hampton Roads and want Zaycon to come back we need to band together and let them know.

Here is what you can do to let them know:

1. Leave a message on the Zaycon Facebook Page. Let them know you are in Hampton Roads and want them back!

2. If you don’t want to use Facebook or you just want to take an additional step you can drop them an e-mail at

3. If you have been waiting to sign up for Zaycon until I told you they were coming to town- DO IT NOW!

Basically we need to show them that if they come back they will make some money!

Review: Nintendogs + Cats French Bulldogs and Friends + Great Sale!

Thinking of getting your child a cute little dog or cat for Valentine’s Day?  How about leaving behind the clean up, house breaking, and vet bills and giving them a virtual pet instead? 

Nintendo has released several versions of Nintendogs + Cats including French Bulldogs and Friends, Toy Poodle and Friends, and Golden Retriever and Friends. These games allow your child to play with,take care of,  and accessorize mulitiple breeds!  How much fun could they ask for?  Even better, when they are done having fun, they simply turn off the game!  No clean up required!

 The game allows the created pet to “learn” and respond to your voice for different commands and perform tricks. The pet has emotions, a personality, and you must play, wash, feed, and give the pet water as needed based on the status updates you receive each time you turn on the game.  The facial-recognition technologies on the Nintendo 3DS even let puppies recognize their owners!  My kids love this aspect of the game! Another cool feature of the game is the Journal.  This can keep track of your daily activities in the game. You can view other players you’ve encountered with StreetPass, view your pedometer data, and so much more! 

Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog and New Friendscan be normally be purchased for $39.99 but is on sale right now via Amazon for only $15.99!  That’s a bargain compared to actual pet costs!

Review & Giveaway-AMMO Books Memory Game and Book By Patrick Hruby

If you’ve been following my site for any amount of time, you know how much I love the site Totsy.  Totsy is a member’s only site that has FREE sign up and offers deep discounts on items for you and you children. Items range from clothes to toys, to books!  Totsy was kind enough to send me AMMO Books ABC is for Circus by Patrick Hruby and AMMO Books Patrick Hruby Memory Game to review AND giveaway!

Patrick Hruby is a contemporary artist who has amazing talent at illustrating.  Of the 2 items, the book is definitely my favorite.  The artwork is appealing to both my 3 year old and my 1 year old, and the alphabet theme makes it the perfect book to read to them both at the same time.  I really like that the words are more mature and center on the circus, thus giving me a chance to further develop the boys’ vocabulary. 

The memory game has very modern artwork as well and the images are very vibrant and appealing.  My 3 year old loves memory games and this one really appealed to him due to it’s “different” look.  Once again my 1 year old loved the color choices but obviously he is a bit young for a memory game…he did however seem to find the box to be yummy!

Would you like to win this set of item from Totsy?  Check out the ways below for your chance to be the winner!
