Hog Wild Unicorn Popper Review

Disclaimer: I was sent this product for reviewing purposes. All words and opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Retail value $11 and recommended for ages 4 and up
Unicorn with popper in it's mouth and ready to shot.
Unicorn and rainbow poppers
Somebody loves the little rainbow colored poppers.

There are no words to explain how excited I was to receive this unicorn popper, first of all I love unicorns and rainbows and this was the perfect combination of two things that I love. But enough about me, how did the kids feel about it?
They loved it!!
Valentina loved the fact that the little poppers are soft and colorful and that they fit in her little hands. Miguel loved the fact that the unicorn pops out the little balls. He had fun attacking his other toys or me in the leg - ha! The little poppers are soft enough that they don't hurt and if they were to hit your little one the impact is not hard since they are made of very soft foam. This does not mean that you can pop yourself in the eye, so don't go trying that.
All you have to do is insert the popper in the unicorns mouth and then you squeeze it's belly and out comes the popper. The unicorn is also made of a soft plastic.

These definitely make great stocking stuffers for boys, girls and grown ups.
It's a fun toy that provides hours of fun.

It is available online at Hog Wild Toys
and places like Amazon and your local Bed Bath & Beyond.

Make sure to follow Hog Wild Toys online here so you can stay on the loop with their newest toys.

Happy 1st Day Of October

Ready for Fall with Starbucks
Happy First Day of October my loves.
I don't know what it is about October but this is when I really feel like fall is finally here. The weather is finally dropping and we can officially start wearing cozy, fuzzy sweaters while we walk through my city that never sleeps. We also get to enjoy days of rain with lots of puddle jumping.
Now that Valentina is older we get to enjoy this season even more.

It's time to enjoy hot chocolate and movie watching on the sofa.
It also means that it's time to officially start the countdown till Christmas but first to buy some Halloween costumes and start daydreaming about yummy Thanksgiving leftovers!

Now to catch up on some of my favorite shows on this rainy first day of October.

What's your favorite thing about October?

Glo Wubble & WubbleX Review

Disclaimer: I was compensated for this review but all words and opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Glow Wubble (Retail value $19 & WubbleX (Retail value $15)

What comes with the Glo Wubble - Air pump to blow it up (requieres 4 D batteries), lubricant for pump nozzle to go into the wubble ball and instruction.

Siblings having fun with the glow wubble.

The kids were excited to play with the glo wubble. It does provide hours of fun and the only difficult thing is getting it full of air. Even though they provide you with the petroleum jelly for the nozzle it really is hard to get into the glo wubble. Once that part is over it's fun to watch the glo wubble grow.
The kids kept bouncing it all over the living room, the material does make it easy to trap dirt on it but it also cleans easily. It's also easy to disinflate.
All in all it's a fun toy and does make for a nice stocking stuffer. Ours hasn't popped yet and it's been 4 days now of inflating and disinflation. It makes for a nice soft ball to kick around and play around, plus it doesn't hurt that much when you get smacked in the face :) Trust me it's happened to me a few times already!

Stuff that comes with the WubbleX

This is the only picture I have of this wubblex. It comes with a tank of helium not shown above and as with the Glo Wubble the hardest part is getting the nozzle in, once thats done it inflated in a few minutes. Valentina was the only one home when I decided to do this and once it was filled with helium it went up to the ceiling and was up for about an hour with us playing with it and before i could get the camera it popped :(
That was it for the Wubblex, I wish it didn't pop so easily. It does provide hours of fun but keep in mind that it will pop easily.
It does make for a fun stocking stuffer and your kids will have fun.

The wubble balls are also fun to get the kids up and moving, they make great fitness toys that will help get your child up and moving and out of the tv.

Have you played with a Wubble ball before?

Future Runner

It's fun to have a little mini me who can wear cute pink running shoes.
Valentina already loves to run so when I found these Saucony pink running shoes I knew she needed them for running away from mama :) or to run around with her big brother. 
One day we will have matching running shoes and together we will run in races, in the meantime I will enjoy taking snap shots of her tiny feet next to mine.

Fall 2015

Happy 1st Day Of Fall
That means it's time for crunchy leaves, boots, sweaters and best of all Pumpkin everything :)
With Fall also comes Halloween and Thanksgiving!
Fall is definitely one of my most favorite seasons, I'm especially excited to see it through the eyes of our little one. Miguel is all grown up and sees everything differently and Valentina is now a little bit older so that she can enjoy this time a little bit more.

What is you favorite season?

One Very Excited Mom xo
