Care For Our World Activity Set Review

I don’t know how well story time goes at your house, but at mine it is very hard to get my kids to sit still through a whole book without being promised something first. Which is why I love this next product.
The Care For Our World Activity Set not only includes a book to read to your children, but also includes punch out animals like the ones in the story, as well as an area to play with them on. It’s very easy to keep your child’s attention while reading to them because they can act out the story as you are reading it to them. I love how thick the pieces are, and out easily everything fits together.

My kids love to play with this set whether or not I am reading them the story. So not only so you get a good book to read for them, but you kids also get a great toy that they can play with. It comes with dozens of punch out animals, so your child will have a blast letting you know which is their favorite, and also learning about all of the different animals.
The book itself is really great. Your children will learn about all of the different animals, and other wild life while also learning about how to take care of them. Which is something I believe all kids should learn about. With this gift set they can learn about taking care of their world the easiest way possible, while having fun!
One thing I did not like about this set is that the punch outs were not numbered, and did not have any names on them. The piece the all the punch outs come out of has names next to each piece but unless you keep that piece and put all the cut outs back each time after you are done playing it would be very hard to keep track of which animal goes to which stand. Even a bigger box would solve that problem just because you would be able to just set them in the box instead of taking them apart. Either way I do still love this set, and all of its many pieces. I think that this is a great set for families like mine that have a hard time sitting down for story time.
You can find this and many other story time sets, as well as other great products on their website here.

MindWare Toys Review

It’s not often that we, as parents, can find a toy that not only is entertaining to our kids but also educational at the same time. That’s where MindWare toys comes in. Not only do they have great toys that are both parent and kid approved, but their toys also help educate, and stimulate your child’s mind.

We received MindWare’s Pattern Play Which is a board with 40 different blocks, and each color is a different size. The goal of the game is to make different patterns using the blocks. If also comes with a bag to place everything in, and even comes with little cards that have different designs that your child can try to duplicate.
While I knew my daughter would love this toy, I really had no idea how much. As soon as I took it out of the box she began tearing at the packaging. She started playing with the blocks before I could even get the plastic off of the box. Every day since we have gotten the Pattern Play she will point to it and beg for us to sit down and play. If I let her, she will play with it for hours!
My daughter is only 2 years old, and just turned 2, while this toy is for ages 3+. She may not be able to play with it like a 3 year old, or be able to really understand what your supposed to do with it, but she loves to hand me the blocks and loves to put them where she thinks they should go. Because of this game my daughter can not only recognize colors, but knows which colors are which and can now even say the names of each color. I knew that this toy would be a great tool to teach her these things and more, but I had no idea how fast it would help. It took a matter of days to understand it all!
One thing I suggest to anyone who owns this game, would be to put the blocks up when you or your child are not playing with it, and to make sure you keep track of all the blocks. Even just loosing one piece would make it difficult to make the patterns.
Our Pattern Play is definitely a game that will be around my house for a long time! I would highly recommend this toy to anyone looking for something different for their family that gets both themselves and their children thinking!

Pink Princess Dress Review

I love dressing up my little girls in dresses and anything else girly I can find. Well I found a whole website dedicated to giving you everything you need to make your little girl look like a princess. Pink Princess not only has beautiful dresses for your little girl, but they also carry matching accessories like gloves, shoes, bags, and even hair accessories.
I received a white flower girl dress, with a solid bodice with a ribboned taffeta skirt. As soon as I took it out of the package I knew it would be perfect for my little princess, and I could not wait to put it on her. In fact, I put her in the dress as fast as I could.

As you can tell, my little princess was very happy to be in this dress. She was smiling the entire time she was in it. I loved that the sash on the dress is not only removable, but it also matches the design on the dress. The dress is made out of very high quality fabric that does not look like it will stain or rip very easily, which is very important when putting such a pretty dress on a 2 year old. I love the way the dress looks on my little girl! It fits her perfectly, and I’m not afraid of her playing in it and getting hurt, or ruining the dress. I think it would be a great dress for a flower girl, or even just to play dress up in.
PinkPrincess.com has a lot of adorable inexpensive dresses and accessories for your little princess. They carry items for every occasion, and even have some items for your little boy so he can dress up too. You can find this and everything else Pink Princess has to offer on their website here.
