Nuby 360 Wonder Cup Review of plastic sippy

Nuby 360 Wonder Cup Review

Designed for ages 12mos +, this 10oz cup comes with one of those circular silicone tops where the kids sip the water from the sides of an anti-leak rim that’s also leak resistant. The strawless technology helps my three and five year olds feel like big kids without me actually having to break out the  “big kid” cups that spill.

Nuby Thirsty Kids Flip-it Freestyle Review

Today we’re reviewing the Thirsty Kids Flip-it Freestyle water bottle we received compliments of Nuby USA. The kids like the prints but I do, too!! Super gender neutral and contemporary patterns. None of that bright primary colored kid stuff that usually rules our house. These are simple, clean designs that I would want to drink out of.

Review: PicassoTiles Roller Coaster Magnet Building Blocks

Today we’re reviewing the 45-piece Magnetic Roller Coaster Building Blocks set we received compliments of @picassotiles.

Toy Review: Lakeshore Learning Royal Kingdom Adventure Castle & Precious Ponies Playset

The kids and I are excited to review a pair of playsets compliments of Lakeshore Learning’s at-home educational line for language-boosting pretend play. These sets are part of the brand’s newly launched Gifts for Growing Minds Collection for the 2018 holiday season!

In this post, we’ll be reviewing the Royal Kingdom Adventure Castle and the Precious Ponies Playset.  Designed for at-home educational play, we’ve found these sets to be sturdy and thoughtfully accessorized, all with the quality we’ve come to expect from this brand favorite.

And, as you know, we like to be out of the house. So when we’re stuck inside, it’s toys like this that make the day more fun.
