NUBY Light-Up Cup Review of cup with a rocket ship

Nuby Light-Up Cups Review

No matter the medium (shoes, toys, that one annoying flashlight the kids can’t forget about), my 3 and 5 year olds REALLY LOVE things that light up. So it’s kind of genius for Nuby to make a light-up sippy cup. That said, the cups inspire kids to bang them against things to get the lights going, which can lead to leaks. They’re also hand wash only.

Basic Invite Review

Once upon a time there was a mom who had two children.

After the birth of Baby #1, the mom’s family and friends got super cute baby announcements printed on nice stationary after a lovely newborn sesh with professional photographer.

After the birth of Baby #2, the mom’s family and friends got … the most sincere Facebook post she could muster between toddler tantrums and a newborn attached to her 24/7.

Nuby Squirt Wheels Bath Squirters Review

My 3 and 5 year old kids love these toys. They can squirt the water all the way to the bathroom ceiling, lol. They’re fun colors and chunky shapes and I appreciate the detail in the wheels, grill, headlights, etc.

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.

PicassoTiles Rollercoaster Track Review_2

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.

This marble run toy uses magnetic blocks + snap-tracks to build different configurations for the marble run, but its parts are too complicated for 2 and 4 year olds and they got easily frustrated with the set.
