Leap Frog Leap Pad2 ..is coming :)

     OK... so last year the hottest new toy to come out was the Leap Pad and the other tablet by VTech. I like many procrastinated and ended up missing out on the preorder then when it came down to it had to settle on a pink one for my son(he nor I really cared what color it was, as it is just a game). I went to many stores, visited many websites and stalked many store sites with the hope Id be able to land one under our tree that was indeed meant for a boy and the pink one would go to my daughter. But, it just didn't work out that way, I was happy we got the pink one after all if I waited I wouldn't have any.
     The Leapfrog is a very individualized game, the child has the ability to use it as an adult would use a iPad. It has a wide screen completely touch panel, bright colors, takes pics and videos, plays games, has added apps to purchase and activities for many age groups. Am I disappointed it was pink?NO, he didn't care and him and my daughter have a ton of fun playing with it. This is an award winning educational tablet, built for kids with the most modern technology in mind.
     Today when I opened my email I had a notification LeapPad2 is on PreOrder...REALLY!!! So no procrastinating for me I hoped on and joined the LeapPad2 group and bought early to be sure not only that I got one but that I got the one I wanted. So..if you are like me and know how important educational toys are to your kids this is a must have for Christmas(at least in my house). If interested I know a few sites that it is still available you can follow my links..
Leap Frog has in bundles if you are interested in accessories to go with your LeapPad2

Copy-Kids DVD


I had the greatest opportunity to review this DVD with my 2 yr old and my 5 yr old, but dont get me wrong kids of all ages can really get tied up in this video. I did use this as a traveling video and my kids watched this while we driving around. The thing I really enjoyed about this video is the child interaction, the kids and the activity really keeps younger childrens attention to the point that they are totally involved as to what they are saying and doing. My kids do not eat alot of unhealthy food and they do choose fruits over vegetables but this instills a certain mind thought into the kids, "see look other kids eat there fruits and vegetables too" and to a child its a matter of do what they see or hear. This is a great video and its meant to be watched with kids and adults, there are NO frilly characters or alot of sugar coating just simple talk about what is good. Great video, I enjoyed watching with my kids and we have watched on more than one occasion.

This is by far a more informative video than I assumed especially when it comes to be aimed at kids. My kids were totally involved in what the kids were saying and doing and the more the watched it the more they repeated what they were hearing, therefore I knew what they were hearing was what they were absorbing. Great movie!!

Dino Lingo


5.0 out of 
I being an influenster didnt get one(I wish I would have) but was able to watch previews via Vimeo, and I thought it to very cute. It is aimed at kids by being very animated, it does use both cartoon as well as real images. The speaking is very clear and able to be understood. It is very repetitive and easy to remember. The shows are easy for a small child to relate to and easy to follow along with. It contains a wide variety of words and pictures. These are very relatable to adults as well, though they are aimed at kids its easy and enjoyable to watch. Great product I wish I could have a copy of my own my kids would love it.

‘“imPRESS Press On Manicure"

I received this product being an Influenster as a sample and to try an unknown to me product.
     I received this product and I do like the flexibility of press on nails and use them in place of manis as they are not really in my budget. I was excited when I received the product it had such a cool packaging it resembled a polish bottle and I thought WOW how cool. So I first opened it and seperated the nails from larger to smaller and then attempted to size them to my nails AND to my dissatisfaction NONE of the nails fit my nails properly and I would consider my nails average size. I cleaned and filed my nails and used alcohol to reclean my nails and to no avail did they work for me. I pulled the tabs to apply the adhesive pressed them onto my nails and applied as best as I could. Needless to say, the nails were spread around my home none left on my nails. The imPress are SOO cute, but did they work for me?NO..May they work for others?YES maybe..will i buy them again, I cant say no but they would not be my first choice. If I get the free pack from influenster I will have to pass to one of my nieces as they are not working for me.
this is the website I think these would work for tweens but not adults  http://impressmanicure.com
simply peel off, press on, and you're done. There's no drying, a killer shine and a manicure that lasts up to a week! And, imPress is so easy to remove, you can change it up to match your mood as often as you want. Check out all 36 colors and patterns

"Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies"

received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster :)


I originally picked up this product from my neighborhood dollar store and being made by Quaker I knew it would be good. Quaker is known for oatmeal in my home and my kids love oatmeal, as well my kids LOVE cookies. Because I found these for $1 I bought a few boxes they are perfect to send to school and share with friends and healthier than a bag of chips. They are "uber" convenient fit perfect in a purse or diaper bag. They are great as a snack or an on the go for kids, they work great for baseball games as well. I like them because they do not create the normal mess of most cookies in the car. These are soft and chewy but very easy for little kids to enjoy. My kids like that they can hold them and they dont fall apart as they bite. Made with whole grain oats, and are individually packaged, provide a good source of fiber and only 6 grams of total fat per serving.

“The Many Uses of Ivory”

     I have used many bars of soap in my 40 years here on this earth but one bar really is different from many others.I, being an influenster, received a bar of Ivory bar soap  in my last VoxBox for moms. Dont get me wrong I have used Ivory before, for showers and for hands. It is very gentle on skin and little hands and it is very entertaining for a wee one in the bath tub. I dont know exactly why but my kids get a kick out of letting the bar float like a ship while bathing, it floats. Its a pure bar and has so many uses besides bathing and floating.
     I ,as a mom of 4 have seen tons of stains and spots, this bar is great on stains. I didnt realize it till a couple of years back that it works as an amazing stain remover. I at first started buying a bar and when i did my kids clothes I added a couple little slivers to their soiled clothes. Then I had a lil girl who is messier than all my boys put together and as you know girls clothes are considerably lighter in colors. If you take a dry bar, dab the shirt with water, rub bar on stain on inside and out let it set then throw it in wash like normal. If its a tough stain use a brush of some sort to help compound the ivory in fabric. Im not going to say its a miracle bar because there will always be some stains that will not come out, luckily I havent found any like that yet :)
     Using Ivory is great on your face, it is so soft and pure, gentle on irrated skin. It cleans and freshens up your face and has been said to even out skin tones.
     I love Ivory it has so many uses in everyday life and you should always have a bar on hand. Thank you Influenster and Ivory for this great opportunity.
