Freshly Picked Moccasins are the Ultimate Baby Fashion Accessory

I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
 
With 2 little girls of my own I have learned there is something to be said about cute baby accessories. I never go overboard as they already have a wardrobe that is far better than my own but I do love getting them a few really nice pieces that really are truly adorable. When it comes to adorable moccasins Freshly Picked has the cutest colors and designs out there. They can be paired with any outfit to take the cuteness factor up a few notches.
 
 
Each one is made with durable leather to make a soft soled shoe that is incredibly flexible and super comfy to wear. They are handmade in the U.S.A. and have hidden elastic to make them easy to put on and take off but they still stay on when they are worn.
 
 
These are the limited edition neon pink pair and I am in love with the bright and bold colors!
 

My daughter is almost 3 and is able to put these shoes on all by herself. I personally feel they run a tad large but that is just my  opinion.


There is absolutely no filter on these pics, the shoes are that bright!


These would make the PERFECT baby shower gift. They come in colors like camo, brown and purple and would be extra adorable for newborn photo shoots and all the other people at the baby shower will ooh and awww at the cuteness of them.

 
I have to include a picture of these adorable limited edition ants ones! So stinkin' cute!
 
 
These moccasins are definitely high quality and that can be seen in every stich in the shoe. I hope to get several others in the future to compliment many different outfits! These are comfort and adorableness all in one shoe!

VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch Is So Awesome Every Kid Will Want One! & Giveaway

~The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech~


I absolutely love technology and I especially like seeing new technology in the form of toys for my kids to play with. I am constantly blown away with what their toys can do! VTech is one of those brands that we have loved since my oldest was just a baby and they have gone and created what I believe will be a HUGE hit with kids...the Kidizoom Smartwatch. It is a touch screen watch for kids that plays games, tells time, takes pictures, videos and more!

 
    There are some really AMAZING features of this watch! It is so much more than a time piece and a camera!
 

  • 4 inch color touch screen
  • Camera for taking photos and recording videos
  • Voice recorder with 5 voice changing effects
  • Special effects including customized photo frames, color filters and distortion effects; fun video frames
  • 4 fun games, included
  • Kid-durable design to withstand drops and bumps
  • Splash proof and sweat proof
  • Alarm clock with fun tones and animation
  • Timer and stopwatch in kid-friendly themes
  • 50+ digital and traditional analog displays
  • Rechargeable battery
  • 4 vibrant colors: blue, pink, white and green
  • Micro USB cable for data transfer and battery recharging
  • Access to Learning Lodge app store to download more games and watch displays
  • Ages 4 years and up; MSRP: $59.99

 
My daughter is 5 and a half and although she is still learning to read she is still able to play with this watch to the fullest. She is now more eager than ever to learn how to tell time which I am super excited about too!
 


There is a home button on one side of the watch and a camera button on the other side, otherwise you use the touch screen to manipulate all the watch's functions. The material of the watch itself is very flexible and it is splash proof but NOT waterproof. Washing hands with it on is okay but not dunking it under the water flow. The material itself is very kid friendly.


There are 3 different home screens to scroll between. The camera and video quality is actually really great for a toy! She finds herself a budding photographer now! The 4 included games are easy yet fun and she is already asking us to put more games on it.

 
Everything in and on this watch have been carefully crafted for kids to enjoy from the fun themes to the small educational games! When my daughter first gets up in the morning she likes to change the clock picture to one of the 50 available. You can easily re-charge the battery with the micro-usb port and you can plug it into your computer for data transfer.


My daughter says "this is more than a child could every want because it is like so many toys all in one." I could not have phrased it better myself as this toy can do so much! This is definitely going to be the watch every kid 4+ wants for birthdays and holidays. Now head on down this post and enter for your chance to win one!

Step2 Wild Whirlpool Water Table Review

“I am partnering with Step2 for the following review. I received a product in exchange for my review and honest opinion. No other compensation was provided.”


Here in Florida Spring is here. To us that means playing outside in the great weather! I am always looking for new and fun toys for my girls to enjoy playtime outside. Over the years a lot of our Toys are Step2 because I think they are absolutely top quality! I was beyond excited to review the Wild Whirlpool Water Table with my two girls on one of the first really warm days of the year.



Of course it comes in several pieces but it literally took less than 5 minutes to put together.



  • Water tower connects to the activity table and creates a vortex when water is added
  • Water spinner entertains children as they watch it go round and round when water is put into to the funnel
  • Scoop water into the teetering boat for extra splash-worthy fun
  • Rotating octopus can be spun to create a whirlpool effect
  • Six sea creatures can be captured with the scooper and sent down the funnel back into the water (included)
  • Parents will appreciate the drain plug for quick clean-up
  • 10 water table accessories included
  • Holds up to four gallons (15 L) of water
  • Adult assembly required


Honestly this is HOURS of fun. My 2 year old and 5 year old played with it together and they had a blast. There are so many little things about it that make the fun last. They of course loved putting water in the tower the best. They loved watching the water flow down and into the spinner.


As a parent my all time favorite feature is the plug. No more turning a water table on its side dumping water and all the toys onto the ground. With this one you just pull the plug and let the water drain. It is a feature I have been wanting on our water tables for years! 

Here is our video review:


In the winter or when the weather is not cooperating then just buy one of those huge bags of rice or beans from a warehouse store and use it as a sensory table. My oldest has sensory issues and giving her something like that to give her the sensory input she needs can really give her a toy to enjoy. Step2 has managed to make another fun toy that my girls can enjoy all year long!
