Giveaway - The Young Scientist Club

Here is another great review and giveaway from Kathryn Flamme who blogs at BabyDashCo.  I know my son would love these kits, he is quite inquisitive after all.  I guess most toddlers are this way since so much learning occurs at this age. 

Clifford and his friends love exploring the world around them and with this exciting kit they are learning all about KITCHEN SCIENCE! Emily Elizabeth, the narrator in the colorful 20-page manual, guides young scientists through captivating experiments with catchy titles such as test tube explosion, making slime, crystal star, crystal art, milk glue, colored celery, waking up fungus, fungus eats bananas, fungus in a tube, sticky ice, upside down trick, crystal garden, and exploding volcano. Young Scientists will feel like real scientists when they use the included colorful lab tray, measuring cup, test tubes, and funnel to perform their experiments! Join Clifford and his friends on an adventure into the world of science!
The kids picked two favorite things to show you on video. They really enjoyed creating exciting and fun experiments. They ask me every day to create something new!

We also created another experiment containing bananas and yeast!
The Young Scientist Club
This kit is super fun and I love that it's not just a one day kit. You can continue to create experiments for as long as your child wishes. The tray that was included was also a life saver! It kept all the ingredients in one place with very little clean up!

Giveaway - Win a Gotz Doll from HABA

I have personally seen these doll around the blogosphere but never paid much attention since I have a little boy.  But if I had a little girl I would certainly want to get one of these dolls for her, check out the pictures below and see just how cute these are.  The review below was written by Kathryn Flamme who blogs at BabyDashCo.

Introducing the Jessica Gotz Doll! This 18 inch stand alone doll features beautiful long blonde hair and an adorable floral & hearts outfit. All their garments are perfectly finished with button holes, pockets,and embroidery, are realistic and not sewn on as applications. The many variations variations of these details really help to promote the creative and motor skills of children. The deliberate abdication of electronic functions allows endless creativity and reduces unnecessary amenities. The child can concentrate on playing and learns to deal consciously with and idea. Thus cognitive abilities such as perception, learning, recall, thinking, and empathy are developed individually.
Their beautifully sculptured faces and expressions speak directly to every doll parent. The personality and charm of the Gotz dolls capture the heart of every child. Superior quality and design provide a lifetime of love. Let yourself be captured by the world of Gotz dolls. They are only using high-quality eyes that are either inserted by hand or painted. Their lashes are specially produced to enhance the natural look of our dolls.
Only the highest quality, natural-looking hair is used in Gotz dolls. This hair has been developed especially for Gotz and, in fact, is still made in Germany! It is rooted into the scalp and is thus easy to care for. Children can wash, style( even with a curling iron & blow dryer on low setting) and brush just like your very own hair!
The latest trends in color and fashion are used in creating fresh clothing styles for our dolls. Lovingly
created clothes contain as many details as real children's clothing and the Gotz outfits are washable and
In their collection, you will find both complete vinyl bodies and soft fabric bodies,
which are filled with wool and fine granulates. Their standing dolls are built
with movable arms and legs. If your doll gets dirt simply place your doll in a pillow case and
place in the washer on cold, delicate cycle and lay flat on belly to dry!
Lauren loves her Gotz Doll and honestly her favorite thing about her is that you can wash and style her hair. She cant do that with any of her other dolls. The Jessica doll is made really well and can see it being passed down from generation to generation.
Here's a video of Lauren washing her dolls hair ;)

Take the Pledge to Fight Bullying

I am sure many of you have had experiences with bullying.  I can remember being picked on as a child but thankfully I was never bullied to the point of not wanting to go to school.  This is not the case for many children and teens today.  Maybe you have heard the stories in the news about kids/teens committing suicide as a result of being bullied.  These stories break my heart to hear as no child deserves to be bullied, and bullied to to point of taking their own lives is just horrible.  I am taking part in this campaign to help raise awareness about bullying.  If more people think about this subject and talk to their kids about bullying, I believe we can make a difference.  As a parent of a toddler I can't stand the idea of my child being bullied or being a bully.  I know I will be discussing this issue when he is old enough.  

If you would like to stand up to bullying please consider signing this pledge.

Giveaway - Motorworks Wodden Toy Cars

I am posting this Review/Giveaway from BabyDashCo.  After reading about this toy though I must say this sounds like something my son would love.

Here is what BabyDashCo has to say about this toy:

With having two boys in the house it definite that they will love cars and they do! I have more cars piled in a tub than I can count.  Manhattan Toys makes a line of build-able and customize-able wooden cars that my four  year old son loves!

MOTORWORKS is the only line of customize-able wooden toy vehicles, accessories and play sets. MOTORWORKS vehicles have an amazingly detailed body of European Beech wood, married with a durable, convertible chassis and snap on custom accessories. All this offers an exciting new concept in realistically styled wooden vehicles that are tons of fun and offer the full experience of customize-able vehicle play.

The MOTORWORKS collection includes three different trim levels: 
Street Series

 Speed Series 

 Extreme Series

Built for infinite possibilities, these vehicles are uniquely designed with a common, convertible chassis and durable vehicle parts that can customize any vehicle in the line! Key add-ons include ground effects, custom wheels, side pipes and spoilers for easy snap-fit onto any vehicle’s chassis. Custom car decals are durable and reposition-able, allowing vehicles to go from street to extreme! Turn a snazzy coupe into a monster vehicle in the blink of an eye, or turn a low-riding street rod into a police cruiser with just a quick swap-out!

With so many mix and match elements that work across the full range of vehicles, MOTORWORKS will mean hours of fast-paced, creative play and fun for everyone in the family. With a complete world of creative vehicle fun at hand, MOTORWORKS is on track to be an instant classic with a decidedly collectable vibe! Experience MOTORWORKS…driven by fun

These wooden cars were a hit with Caden and he was able to figure out how to customize it pretty quicky! Below is a short video of Caden in action.
