Nancy B’s Science Club MoonScope and Star Gazer's Activity Journal Review/Giveaway

Summer is such an amazing time of the year. It opens up so many doors for my family to have things to do. We love to take walks, go swimming, play games outside and so much more. This summer we get to enjoy looking up at the stars. However, Dominique my 10-year-old daughter gets to enjoy her very own Nancy B’s Science Club MoonScope which comes with a Star Gazer's Activity Journal from Educational Insights

Educational Insights offer items from brain-teasing, dice rolling games to ultra-imaginative, kid-powered dinosaur construction vehicle mashups. They got a little something for everyone.  

BunnySlippers.com Review

No matter what the season is, one thing I love to wear around the house is slippers. I have hard wood floors throughout my entire house so after a while my feet tend to start aching if I do not wear slippers. I recently had the chance to work with Bunnyslippers.com on a review and they were kind enough to send me a pair of cute owl slippers. 

Bunnyslippers.com is your source for all things slippers! In addition to their growing selection of bunny slippers, they offer a wide assortment of animal slippers, novelty slippers, character slippers, socks and other unique gifts. There are slippers for the whole entire family.

Clever Birds Review

With the weather warm outside there is one thing, we need is a huge assortment of. Bodysuits or onesies which ever you prefer to call them for your little one. For me bodysuits are used every single day in our house from naptime, bedtime, and playtime and sometimes they just make an outfit complete. I love that they are not too thick and not too thin. I love it when I come across cute body suits that are super stylish. It is also very important to make sure that the bodysuits I have for Lillian are made very well and offer quality material. I had the chance to work with Clever Birds on a review and they were kind enough to send my little girl two different bodysuits.

Clever Birds was created because they believe that every parent deserves the opportunity to dress their baby in beautiful, unique, creatively designed clothing. Their design aesthetic is immediately apparent as they translate their inspirations into stylish designs, using soft supple fabrics, while sustaining great quality and affordability. Clever Birds products allow you and your newborn to begin their life in playful, comfortable, fashionable apparel. They offer several design options; Boy, Girl or Unisex (which can be for either a boy or a girl). 

Rockabye Review

RockAbye offers luxurious, high-quality baby rockers that are designed, developed, and manufactured under the highest standards of style and craftsmanship, right here in the USA.

 Each character embodies the whimsical world of discovery that marks the first years of baby’s life. Each rocker has its very own unique style and personality unlike anything else. The rockers feature four educational songs, written composed and performed by Rockabye. There is an ABC song that teaches all the alphabet, a 1,2,3 song that teaches 1 through 10, a colors of the rainbow song that teaches all the colors and a fun song called “I Love to Rock” in all rockers except Homer the baseball rocker where the fourth song had to be the classic “Take me out to the ballgame” sung by our kid’s choir! Look for the velcro sealed pouch usually on the animals neck where the battery box and on/off switch is located. Three AA batteries are included and can be replaced here if they get played out. 

Cate & Levi Hand Puppet Review

My little girl Lillian is only 8 months and loves to have someone interact with her with a hand puppet. She gets so excited and loves every moment. When I had the chance to work with Cate & Levi on a review that was with one of their newest hand puppets I knew it would be a hit. During my review, I received the Unicorn ($25) which is super cute and really, what a quality hand puppet should look like.

No two Cate & Levi products will ever be the same. Each one is made from reclaimed wool whose colors and textures are individually selected. Not only is this process environmentally responsible, but it ensures that each animal is truly a one of a kind creation never to be duplicated. Each item is as unique as the child who adopts it. Cate & Levi offer several different hand puppets, change purses, pillows, stuffed animals, the new Puppet Theater App and so so much more.

Strawberry Shortcake: Fun Under The Sun DVD Review

Strawberry Shortcake: Fun Under The Sun

Join Strawberry Shortcake and her berry best pals on some sweet sunshine adventures! Blueberry makes a berry big blunder when she overhears Strawberry and thinks her friend is taking all the pals on a tropical vacation. After Blueberry makes some very funny attempts to make things right, Orange Blossom tries to build the girls their own fabulous resort. When they all work together to make it Berry Bitty City-style, it’s perfect...so perfect, in fact, that TV host Mavis Maraschino decides to do a segment on Cherry Jam right then and there! Will the girls ever get the Fun Under the Sun they’ve been dreaming of?

I remember when I was a child I loved Strawberry Shortcake. Now as a mom with two little girls, I am so happy that they share the same love as I once did. When we received the newest movie from Strawberry Shortcake ‘Fun Under the Sun’ my girls and I sit down with popcorn and a bottle for Lillian while the guys hung out. This was a great movie to watch with my girls and it allowed us to have a nice bonding moment. 

My oldest daughter enjoyed the storyline. She also appreciated and connected with the morals that were within the movie. She really loves how Orange Blossom creates a resort for her friends. 

My youngest whom is only 8 months enjoyed the bright colors and she enjoyed the funny moments. As a mom, I really enjoyed the movie and was very impressed with the quality and storyline. This is such a great movie for young girls of any age to enjoy and with it being summer this is the perfect time to enjoy this movie. 

Where to purchase: You can purchase Strawberry Shortcake: Fun Under the Sun from Amazon for $9.96.

Dragons Defenders of Berk Part 1 DVD Review

Based on the DreamWorks Animation Academy Award nominated movie How to Train Your Dragon, DRAGONS: DEFENDERS OF BERK PART 1 follows Hiccup and his fellow dragon trainers as they battle to protect their island home. The young Vikings must put their dragon training skills to the test to defeat dangerous and surprising new enemies! The series features original voice talent from the film including Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse and will include, Zack Pearlman and more.

Defenders of Berk, and the previously released Riders of Berk, is a must-own for any Dragons fan to catch up before the summer event when How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits theatres June 13th! The DVD is jam-packed with special features that dive deeper into the exciting world of Dragons, including Dragon Tracker Part 3 featuring an in-depth look at the Screaming Death, Fireworm Queen, Flightmare and Skrill dragons; Evolution of Screaming Death, a featurette with visual effects supervisor David Jones who explains the history behind this interesting and scary dragon; and the “SuperFly” Dragon Mash-up music video. When it comes to action and excitement, the sky’s the limit in this high-flying animated TV series.

Devil's Due Blu-ray Review

A young couple's blessed event turns into their worst nightmare in one of the most terrifying horror films ever conceived! After a mysterious night on their honeymoon, Zach and Samantha McCall find themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. While recording everything on video for posterity, Zach notices odd behavior in his wife, which they initially attribute to nerves, although it soon becomes evident that the disturbing changes to Samantha's body and mind have a much more sinister origin. All will suffer...but who will survive?

Devil’s Due is a horror movie that comes at a time when there seems to be a lack of genuinely frightening movies. So straight out of the gate, it gets a couple of bonus points for that. Since watching other films, I have been missing a follow-up that is dark and frightening enough to fill that horror void. Devil’s Due pulls off plenty of scares and a few cheap thrills, you just have to look past some frustration on the filming side of things, which is mostly a result of the “found footage” style of filming that has grown very popular in this genre. 

The storyline follows a young newlywed couple. They are recording the events following their marriage, starting with (you guessed it) the honeymoon. A strange series of events leads to a confused pregnancy less than 24 hours later. Don’t get it? Don’t worry, the rest of the story ensures you don’t really need to. What follows are a series of slow scenes that steadily fill in with suitably creepy  moments and a tirade of surprisingly impressive visual tricks that will make you gasp more than once. 

The movie’s conclusion, for me, was easily its strongest point. Some people disagree with this, but as a fan of the horror genre, I have come to expect anything. This movie has all the elements of a good horror movie, but comes up shy of greatness. It is still worthy of purchase in my opinion. There is blood, fear, mystery and some good old fashioned evil, all of the elements necessary for a good fright. 

Where to purchase: You can purchase Devil's Due [Blu-ray] from Amazon for $19.96.
