Charlene DeLoach’s Twenty Gift List

One of the biggest stresses for us during the holidays is travel. Car rides, airplane flights: it makes you want to wish it was 2013 already. This holiday season, however, I’m looking forward to trying out the Trunki Suitcase by Melissa and Doug. My full review of it can be found here. I’ve been coveting […]

Neat-Oh Dinosaur Toybox and Playmat is a Prehistoric Hit

When I got the Neat-Oh! Dinosaur Toybox & Playmat to review, I knew immediately who needed to review this product; my 3.5 year old nephew who loves, loves, loves (did I say loves?) everything dinosaur. His room at home is decked-out-in-dino.     So I gave the Neat-Oh Dinosaur Toybox & Playmat to my brother […]

Toy Giveaway (Lots of Toys)

The Holidays are fast approaching. Too fast actually and I needed to step away from the computer to actually shop and wrap. Not as fun, I have to say. But you may think this 10th and 11th giveaway as part of my 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways are fun though. As I organized my holiday […]

Happy Holidays HEXBUGS

As part of the 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways, my fifth giveaway is such that, if you are a Mom, it may seem a bit creepy. But your kids? They will love the “buzz”. Okay, what am I talking about? Anything HEXBUG. (Which, if you don’t know what they are, you’ll be happy to know […]
