Bloggers make Squinkies a HUGE hit. Yep, I believe it.

0 comments
I just read this article from The New York Times, Squinkies Maker Savors Demand for Holiday’s Hot Toy.

With the help of “mommy bloggers” and a tepid economy, Mr. Nichols turned the squishy toys, named Squinkies, into a fad.
 
Yep. (shaking head up and down) It's true!

Squinkies is still the #1 keyword used to find my blog and I posted that review back in July!

The Squinkies review that I did on video (Youtube)? Well, it's almost at 30,000 views!

I still can't find them in most stores.

Bravo Bloggers! Bravo

Don't know what Squinkies are?

A MAGICAL visitor . . .

2 comments
He showed up without notice.
He's wearing funny shoes and a hat to match.
He's been acting strange.
Crackers and Water only?
He makes the kids act "different".
Yes, folks.
We have a visitor. He's magical and mysterious.
HE is an ELF!

Yep, a magical elf.
His name is Blake.

We found him in our laundry room. I'm not sure how he got there but he came with a suitcase packed with pajamas. (passport says he's from the North Pole) He plans to stay until Christmas Eve according to the dvd that we watched. 

The kids didn't know what to expect at first. They were a little shocked as was I. 
The magic?
An hour after he arrived, my son went into my daughter's bedroom and started cleaning it WITHOUT BEING TOLD TO! Yeah, that's magic!

Mischief: Oh, he has caused some mischief alright.
The first night he was here not only did he make a mess with his crackers and water but he also decided to get into my christmas candy! SHAME ON YOU, Blake.

Last night he decided to play a trick on the kids and hide in one of our chandeliers. My youngest daughter woke up and could not find him so she decided to wake everyone up in the house to hunt for him.

Yeah, she did.

Oh, Blake. What are we going to do with you?


 

The paperwork says he is supposed to report back to Santa Claus every so often. I hope he tells Santa good things about us. 
(I'm nervous!)

Stay tuned for more elf-capades!

Tis the season for lots of shopping.....

Fa la la la la...la la laaa laaaaaa

Crowded shopping malls
Tons of people
Bags to carry

TONS of bags to carry.
"Phew!"
Where's a momma to put her purse or wallet and be able to still find it?

I'll tell ya where.
ON THE WRIST!



It's a wallet that you wear like a bracelet. This is perfect for me. I hate carrying my purse around everywhere.
(mainly because I'm always leaving it somewhere)

This is a great solution.
Not only will I always know where my money/credit cards are but it's also small and compact.
A bracelet on one side and the wallet on the other.

PERFECTION!

I plan to give my mom a bracelet mate this year.
Shh! Don't tell her!

She doesn't like to carry her purse in the store but she does tote her wallet everywhere. This would free up her hands so she could buy even more stuff. hehe

Would you like to win a BRACELET MATE?

I have TWO up for grabs!
2 winners



Here's what ya need to do:

Visit braceletmate.com and browse through all the other products.
Come back here and let me know which one you would like to own BESIDES the bracelet mate. (mandatory)

Allowance Manager

0 comments
Do you give your kids an allowance?

If so, Do you just give it to them and expect the best? Let them spend it how they see fit? 
Or do you help them understand the whole "saving" system?

Allowance Manager is a free online tool to help parents and children keep track of their allowance and spending.

The setup is pretty much like that of your bank statement.
You add your child's allowance amount and deduct spendings right there on the computer.
You can also add "other" money such as birthday gifts, christmas money or any other form of monetary gifts received.
When your child spends some of the money just deduct it.

Allowance Manager teaches your child how to manage their money.
I also found some free printable chore charts.

AHEM: incentives for earning that allowance!

Visit Allowance Manager and start an account for each of your children. It's free!

Superstructs, a custom gift made just for kids *GIVEAWAY*

69 comments
Those little license plates at the store with names on them....Ya know, the ones for your bike.
Do you ever stop and browse for YOUR name?

What about the stationery at the book store. Do they have your name on them? Is it spelled right?

Everyone likes to see their name on something, right?
Kids love it!

I have the perfect gift idea for any kid.



Award-winning Superstructs by WABA Fun LLC, are the vibrant plastic rod and connector style construction toys that feature safe, durable EVA foam panels that 'pop' between the rods and joints. New this year are Superstructs Custom Kits, an easy online system where anyone can design and personalize their own toy building set and make the perfect gift for a young builder. Created entirely in-house, the Custom Kits system is the first of its kind to combine award-winning toy design with user personalization to make the perfect gift. Gift givers can select from over 24,000 possible combinations to give to an inquisitive child.

Superstructs won the Dr. Toy 100 Best Children’s Products for 2010 and Dr. Toy 10 Best Creative Products for 2010.

 Building a kit is simple. The hardest part is deciding which one to try! Prices start at just $9.99. To create a kit simply select your model(s), personalize with your name of choice and click ORDER.

My son loves his Superstruct kits. He can now build a car, plane and motorcycle with ease. The first day that the kits came, he spent about 30 minutes in his room being quiet. ((BIG PLUS)) When he came out he had 3 new creations created all by himself by using the instructional guide that came with the kit.

I was pretty amazed!

Now on to the new books!
This past week we had the opportunity to review Klutz Window Art-Classic and Capsters.

(Check out our vlogs from this past week to see both crafty projects in action.)



 

Both projects were tons of fun but our favorite was the Window Art. Each kid had a great time deciding which picture they would paint. Now we have several works of art hanging on our windows. Several of the neighborhood kids have already asked about them.
I would recommend both crafts as a way to enjoy a little time with your children. They would also be perfect to do during birthday parties or sleepovers.

To find out more about Window Art-Classic, click here.
