This Disney photo book post was created in partnership with Snapfish. All opinions are my own.

I take a ton of pictures every month.  Heck, I take a ton of pictures every week.  With each click, I’m always thankful that digital cameras are available for home use because I would be spending a fortune having them all developed!

Smoobee No Cry Brush

Detangling brush by Smoobee

Before Bubbles turned one she loved bath time.  Toys, splashing – what’s not to love?  But as she got older and her hair grew longer she started to like bath time less and less.  She did not enjoy the process of washing her hair, but she really did not like what came after – brushing.  Bath time quickly turned into me trying to wrestle her into the tub long enough to wash her and her hair, while trying to keep her from clawing her way out.  Fun, right?

At ABC Kids earlier this year, however, I learned about a new product called the Smoobee.  It claimed to be a “magic, No Cry Brush”.  I’m a bit of a skeptic – especially when items call themselves magic – and thought the brush was probably for polite, well-mannered children that loved to sit like Rapunzel and have her hair brushed.  During every hair wash adventure, though, it kept popping into my head.  I wondered if the claims were true and decided the only way to know for sure was to try it.

Reverse Charades Board Game

RETROPlay's Reverse Charades Party Game

If you’re looking for some family fun this holiday season you’ve found it!  A new game called Reverse Charades by RETROPlay will have the entire family laughing and on the edge of their seats.  There aren’t many games that everyone from your tweens to their grandparents can play at the same time and have so much fun.  And if your kids are elementary school-aged they don’t have to miss out;  Reverse Charades Junior is perfect for them.

2012 Holiday Gift Guide - RETROPlay's Reverse Charades

Reverse Charades is a new take on an old classic.  Instead of one person acting out the charades clues for their team to guess – the entire team acts out the clues for one person to guess.  This keeps the game play moving quickly and also engages more people at one time.  No more waiting for a bunch of people to go each time before you get another turn acting.  Both Reverse Charades and Reverse Charades Junior come with 720 words so your group can play for hours without missing a beat.
