I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Urbini. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.

When we were prepping for Bubbles’ arrival, one of the things we researched was a stroller.  I knew we wouldn’t need one right away, but when we looked at the options, I found that there were a number of “travel sets”.  A combination stroller with a car seat that could go from base in the car, to snapping into the stroller.  Very convenient!

People also encouraged me to get a travel stroller.  I kind of brushed the idea off, because the stroller that came with our set was a pretty sweet ride, and I couldn’t imagine why we’d want to use anything else.  Like needing a golf cart when you had a luxury SUV.

I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kidoodle TV. I received a promotional item and a free trial as a thank you for participating.

We’re pretty selective about the television shows that Bubbles gets to watch.  The shows don’t necessarily have to be educational – watching something purely for it’s entertainment value is okay now and then.  But I also don’t want it to be something that’s going to teach her habits or concepts that are too old for her.

For example, in the mornings there are a couple of her favorite shows that run back-to-back.  Following those two shows, however, is another show that we don’t prefer for her to watch.  We usually watch with her, but occasionally we need to step away for a phone call or the laundry, and once in awhile we come back to find that her shows have ended and she’s watching the other show.

I received Tickety Toc toys in order to facilitate my review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you have toddlers you’re probably familiar with the show “Tickety Toc”.  The adorable twins Tommy and Tallulah are responsible for “chime time” every hour, on the hour.  Their friend, Pufferty the Train, takes them to and from their task each time.  In between, they have lots of fun adventures with their friends McCoggins, Hopparoo, Tooteroo, Madam Au Lait and others.

Tickety Toc Toys

Bubbles loves to sing the theme song (it’s very catchy) and knows a number of the show’s catchphrases, like when Tommy and Tallulah ask each other “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?” and “Well if you’re sure, I’m sure.”  And now thanks to some great Tickety Toc toys, she can create her own adventures for the tick-tocketeers.

I received Super Duper products in order to facilitate my review. All thoughts and words are my own.

A bit ago I shared with you our experiences with the MagneTalk game from Super Duper.  Creating stories with the magnets and scenes was creating lots of opportunities for imaginative play, so we were looking through the site to see if there were any other similar games.  There ended up being a number of games we found that looked like they would be fun.

MagneTalk Mealtime Game from Super Duper Publications

The first game we selected was the MagneTalk Mealtime Game.  After enjoying our first MagneTalk product so much, I knew this would be a hit, too.  The set includes 48 magnets and a game board that breaks a dinner plate up into the major food groups.  You can have your child sort by food type, create a balanced meal, or make up silly food pairings.

This is a sponsored post and giveaway for OshKosh B’gosh. All thoughts and words are my own.

OshKosh B’gosh has been a favorite of many families for literally decades.  I remember wearing my own pair of OshKosh B’gosh overalls as a child, and many of you probably do, as well.  Hubby even loves their overalls so much that he had me buy a pair with pink hearts embroidered on them for Bubbles’ first birthday.

But OshKosh B’gosh is much more than just classic denim and World’s Best Overalls.  They have a whole new assortment of looks that both you and your kiddos will love.  We don’t have a local brick & mortar store, but I’ve had a great time perusing all their new outfits on the OshKosh B’gosh website.

OshKosh B’gosh Girls Tees

Grey Sequined Stripe Tee from OshKosh B'gosh

Some of my favorite new items are their super-cute sparkle girls tees.  Bubbles has been showing off her girly side lately, asking me for lots of pink, glitter, dresses, and more.  As soon as I saw the Sequined Stripe Tees, I knew she would love them and that she’d look adorable wearing them.
