Review: Stickerkid (+ giveaway)

If you've followed me for a little while then you know I'm a fan of wall decals. Stickerkid is a fun company with products for kids! They asked me if I'd like to review their product and of course I jumped at it! I've been dying to get my kids something. Especially my son. I find its hard to find him decals that are age appropriate. He is almost 11, and so he isn't into the little kid things and all about big kid things (TMNT for example).

I found some super cute stickers for their doors! I couldn't wait to show the kids!

Personalized Children's Gifts

As a kid, and still today, it was pretty easy to find stuff in gift shops with my name on it. Since my name is Jennifer, it is still one of the most popular girls names. I even remember a book that I used to take out of the library often called Jumping Jenny. I loved it because it had my name in it!
 

These days, thanks to technology, we can buy personalized music CDs, books, movies, and more with our kids name on it, no matter how unique they are. I was lucky to be chosen by KD Novelties to receive a personalized book, and I chose to get it for my daughter who's two. My son is almost 11, so I didn't think it would fit for him (though they may have something for his age!).

Educational Preschool and Kinder Apps


This post was created in partnership with Mom Buzz Media Blogger Network. All views & opinions expressed below are my own and are not influenced in any way.

Kids Academy | Educational Apps for Children

It is so hard these days to find a good app for the little ones. Especially because technology has taken over our lives, the kids notice it, too. So I love finding games for the kids, especially my toddler, that are educational. I've written about these guys before.

Preschool & Kindergarten Learning Kids Game Educational Books & Free Songs

These apps are so perfect for my toddler. She is 2.5 right now, and there is no shame in my game of trying to prepare her for school as best I can. If it takes apps and fun, then that'll be the way we start! She loves the characters, and it's a bonus that my 10-year-old loves to play these with her and try to show off what he already knows. Its so cute to see! This is a must have app if you have a preschooler in your life.

FREE for a limited time! (usually $2.99)

I love Kids Academy apps for my toddler who isn't quite old enough for preschool. This extra jump she gets from "playing" these apps are perfect. The bugs are her fave in this app. The colors are vibrant, the characters are fun and engaging. This is perfect right now for us as I'm trying to teach her the alphabet, and have been writing while holding her hand so she gets the hang of it. This has been super helpful. Sometimes I'll hold her finger to show her how, and then she'll do it. Love it! Great job Kids Academy.

Review: DecalsTree.com

I love wall decals. I have one large one in my daughters room, and my son has some Phineas and Ferb decals in his room. But I don't have anything anywhere else in the house. So I was super excited when DecalsTree contacted me to see if I'd like to partner with them for a review. My reaction: "Heck Yea!"

They let me choose anything with a value of $50 or under. To be honest, at first I wondered if that would be enough. But after viewing the website, there is quite a bit for under $50! A great place to find fun wall decals for any room in your home, while staying under a budget.

I chose Twin Trees with Flying Birds.

Butterfly Wonderland Birthday Parties

My kids birthdays are coming up in July and September, and I'm already trying to figure out what the heck we're going to do. That's always a challenge. You don't want to do keep doing the same thing every year (Peter Piper for the older one, and a pool party for the younger one), as that tends to get boring. So I'm trying to figure out what to do, then I see an ad for Butterfly Wonderland. We've never been! So why not?!

Flying With Kids: What I've Learned

So if you don't follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may not know that last month we had to fly across the country for a funeral. My son, who is 10, was super excited about the flight. I figured he'd be pretty good on the plane. My daughter is the one I was stressing about. She is 2 1/2. What the heck do you do to keep a toddler happy on a plane? I asked a few groups I was in, and got pretty much the same answers. I'm going to share those, as well as my own tips from this trip.

Review: Cordskinz

I was sent the following product in exchange for my honest review...

I love my headphones. I hate how easily they tangle. You get used to just throwing them in your bag, pocket, car, anywhere. Then when you go to use them (or need them the most) you find out they are tangled. Sure, you can untangle them in just under three minutes, but the hassle is annoying enough to make you want to buy a Bluetooth device LOL.

Well, Cordskinz is a fun way to keep your cords from tangling. These are basically little tubes that go over your earbuds/headphone cords, and they prevent them from tangling. These are super lightweight, you won't even notice they're there!
