Today we’re reviewing the Nuby Thirsty Kids Flip-it Water Canteen: a handy flip-top water bottle that works in a lunchbox, or on-the-go when we travel.
Fall marks the time of year when I start planning Clara and Wyatt’s dual December birthday party. Yep, totally combining it ’till they won’t let me anymore. #noshame.
In December, they will be 3 and 5. So I researched aaall the kids party places.
And as bonus of my annual crazy-mama birthday party scouting, I’ve decided to make my venue list public. And styled. With links. And prices! You’re welcome.
Overall, these make for a fun craft that turns into a toy. For my kids specifically, I think this toy is a little too old for them. The box says ages 6+. So it’s too old for Wyatt (age 2) for sure, but Clara (age 4) was borderline able to assemble it with my help, which caused a lot of frustration for her because she wants to be able to do it herself.On the other hand, she really liked that the dolls were sparkly, pretty and that one of them involved her one true love – cupcakes. So for the price, it’s worth trying one out to see if your 4/5/6 year old can manage it.
Kids game company @Pressmantoy gifted us three kids games to review. In our house, Clara really loves “winning” so we pick the “everyone wins!” concept of gameplay and keep playing till everyone can have a turn at winning. Read on to take a look.
Overall, this tent playhouse is a beautiful item. It satisfies all the things I look for in kids stuff: fun factor + style. AND it was so easy to put together. More on that below. But first back to the style … I like that it boasts the Scandinavian look I endlessly search for but is so surprisingly hard to find. And that scalloped roof detail is oh-so-sweet. That’s why I was so happy when I found Petite Maison — a company that just so happened to be looking to push an expansion into the U.S. this year. Woot.
We received an Octopus Hoopla bath toy compliments of Nuby in exchange for our honest review. And the verdict is … we love it! Overall, we highly recommend this for bath time since it can be used in a number of ways.
This set came with a stainless steel fork, spoon and knife trio featuring a cute picture of a bee on the handle. It’s perfect for my 2 year old who is still learning how to use forks and spoons at mealtime.
I received this Round ABC rug compliments of Lorena Canals Rugs in exchange for our review. And, you guys, it’s kind of perfect.
We picked this rug in the natural/black color scheme for our living room/play space, and it’s just been the best thing! It’s big and soft, 100% natural cotton and the kids love playing on it. The kiddos have also incorporated its ring of bold letters into playtime, often singing the ABCs as they walk around it – which, let me tell you, is the cutest thing ever.
My wish for my children is that they always find friendship in each other. That they find joy and creativity in play. And that they each have their own comfortable space. These words are inspired by our newest collab compliments of DockATot.
I received two DockATot Grand Docks in the oh-so-chic Bananas For You print in exchange for our honest review.
Overall, Playfoam Pals provided my kids with a lot opportunities fun and creativity. My 2 year old liked to squish it and roll it, while my 4 year old enjoyed making little houses for the animals. And it apparently never dries out and can be used a bunch. #winning.
