Simon Says: KidloLand App Rules!

A few weeks ago the people at KidloLand reached out to me to see if I was interested in reviewing their toddler early learning app. Since I have a toddler who doesn’t often get to play with electronics, I knew that it might take some time to formulate a good review, but I decided to go for it after I played around a bit.

There is a TON of great content to choose from, which I was excited about because I am getting tired of the one Simon sized app that I had prior to KidloLand.

After I downloaded the app and played a bit I put the iPad in Simon’s hands so that I could do something… I played one song for him, Old MacDonald, and he was sold. The next day I explored a bit further with Simon and I became even more convinced. The content seems endless, truly. Read More

Do you have a product that you use over and over and over and OVER again? I have quite a few, but my almost daily use product in the kitchen are the Nuby wash or toss stackable bowls with lids.

Since we are part of a nanny share, Simon is away from home a couple of days a week and we send him with his lunch when he’s not here. At night, when I am getting his lunch together, I always separate it into these Nuby bowls – so easy!

I usually send things like fruits and veggies, hummus, graham crackers, noodles and sauce, turkey and cheese, etc. It’s amazing what these bowls can hold! Read More

Nuby Parent Blogger: Splish Splash Bath Cups Review

Yesterday we spent the morning at the beach, which we haven’t done in a LONG time. The weather was perfect and it wasn’t too crowded since we got there before the 4th of July crowds. My niece and sister-in-law joined us to play in the sand.

Simon didn’t love the sand, but he did love spending time with his cousin (of course) and he liked playing with the toys that we brought. He mainly hung out on the towels playing with his Nuby stacking cups and eating Annie’s bunnies, but we still managed to bring about a pound of sand home with us. Of course. Read More

Nuby Parent Blogger: Flip n’ Sip w/ NEW 360 Weighted Straw Cup Review

The weather has been perfect lately (aside from some rain) and that means that we are taking full advantage and spending quality time outside! We’ve been doing a bunch of trips to the park, long walks, and Simon even got a bike seat for J’s bike so that we can go on family bike rides. Cutest.

With the sun and heat comes sunscreen and lots of water.

When I became a Nuby Parent Blogger a couple of months ago, I was able to choose a few items to review. I knew that we would need more and more sippy cups as Simon got older, and I was especially interested in the ones with a straw. Read More
