Tray Vous Stroller Tray for Bugaboo Frog or Cameleon Review & Give-Away!!!

Tray Vous is the perfect tray accessory for your BUGABOO™ FROG™ or BUGABOO CAMELEON™ stroller. Finally, a solution to the problem every BUGABOO™ parent with a Toddler has pondered… “I love my stroller, but I wish it had a tray!

Unlike other products available today, Tray Vous is the only full sized, flat surfaced tray with raised edges, removable and convenient for your child’s needs with an appearance that compliments the strollers’ overall sleek design. Also, the Tray Vous® activity tray preserves the versatility of the BUGABOO™ stroller handle.

I am a Bugaboo Cameleon owner so I was thrilled to have the chance to review the Tray Vous.  It is super easy to put on.  You simply take the carry handle off, attach the connectors and reattach the carry handle back on the stroller.  Then you just simply take the tray and attach it to the carry handle with the velcro fasteners.  It fits perfectly, is not loose, does not wobble, and looks great.  Now my toddler has a place for snacks and a bottle or sippy cup.  This tray adds to the versatility of my Bugaboo.

Rock N Learn New Letter Sounds DVD Review, Discount Code & Give-Away!!!

Rock N Learn Logo

I really love the Rock N Learn DVD Series. Recently, I was given the chance to review their brand new version of the Letter Sounds DVD.  My kids love these DVDs so much that as soon as I open them and they see the package, they want me to put it on.  This DVD is great, my 2 year old’s favorite part is when they show the letter, an object that begins with that letter and then show a mouth making the letter sound.  It is so funny he does it right with them.  My four year old loves the game where they put up sentences and you have to pick the letter you hear the most.  He is very proud of himself because he gets them all right.  The DVD is full of games, songs and fun that teach little ones lots of skills they need for reading.  As always I am impressed with everything that is packed in to this great DVD and how much my kids learn from it.

Learning to read is more fun than ever with this new version of Letter Sounds, Rock ‘N Learn’s best-selling DVD video. Engaging characters and more material help kids learn the skills to become competent readers. After a quick review of upper and lowercase letters, young learners practice the most common sound each letter makes. An on-screen mouth shows how to form the sounds.

Excitement builds as kids race the clock to say letter sounds in silly sentences before hearing the answers. Then, learners play several games to solidify their understanding of letter-sound associations that will help them read and spell. Finally, after learning some common sight words, kids feel successful reading complete sentences and short stories.

For over a decade, Letter Sounds DVD video has been one of Rock ‘N Learn’s most successful programs for helping kids learn to read. It’s been used in classrooms all over the world and by millions of kids at home. We love getting testimonials on how our Letter Sounds video has changed lives by helping kids become competent readers and spellers. During this time, we’ve also received wonderful suggestions on how we could make Letter Sounds even better. Plus, we recently hired university professors, graduate students, and reading specialists in classrooms to offer their suggestions on how we could improve this reading video by incorporating the latest research on what helps students learn to read and spell.

With this latest version of our Letter Sounds DVD video, you’ll find totally new animation, fun characters, an improved soundtrack, and additional content to build reading skills. In focus groups where we tested our new content, kids loved watching regardless of whether they were very young (actually below the intended age) or older and had already developed some reading skills. This was not surprising because the material includes games that offer differentiated instruction to meet individual needs at different levels. In other words, students can participate and have fun even if they are at different stages in learning to read and spell. The multisensory approach of Letter Sounds engages kids, and the variety of activities help students regardless of their preferred learning styles.

Teachers and parents often ask us, “For what age do you recommend Rock ‘N Learn Letter Sounds?” The answer is any age after 2 or 3, depending on the maturity level of the child. We have heard of teachers and parents using Letter Sounds DVD video for teaching phonics to preschoolers with remarkable results. According to the success stories we receive, some children around the age of four have actually learned to read with Letter Sounds. The Letter Sounds video has been used for preschool alphabet activities, teaching basic phonics rules, teaching phonics to preschoolers, phonological awareness activities for preschool children, and phonics for beginners.

We also hear success stories about older students in secondary grades who have used Rock ‘N Learn Letter Sounds in a remedial way to boost reading and spelling skills. Phonics instruction is effective for learning important rules about the structure of words.

Students with learning disabilities in written expression have benefited from beginning phonics instruction through our Letter Sounds programs. We have also heard how students in adult basic education classes are learning to read with Letter Sounds in either audio CD or video format.

Rock ‘N Learn Letter Sounds has helped individuals of all ages learn to speak English. Letter Sounds is often recommended by teachers who specialize in English as a second language (ESL).

Plus, the “on-screen mouth” in Letter Sounds DVD has been a huge hit with speech therapists and speech and language pathologists. We made certain to keep the mouth with this new version. Our original development team included professionals in speech and language to make certain that each common sound of the alphabet was correctly presented.

Please note that Rock ‘N Learn Letter Sounds comes in either a DVD video version or an audio/book version. The audio version does not include all of the new material that we’ve added to the DVD video.

Regardless of how you use Letter Sounds, you will love the results… we guarantee it.

We think Rock N Learn DVDs make great gifts for the little kids on your gift list, so we are adding them to our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide.    Rock N Learn is offering a special discount code to Mommy Rambling’s readers!  Just enter coupon code JQ7711 to receive a 25% discount on your entire purchase at www.RockNLearn.com.

Pink Zebra Home, Small Simmer Pot and Sprinkles Review & Give-Away!!!

I was recently contacted by Pink Zebra Home and asked to do a review of their products.  I accepted, and was sent a Fleur de lys Ivory Ceramic Simmer Pot and three jars of scented sprinkles.  It was super easy to get started, just unpacked the pot, plugged it in and put some of the sprinkles in the top of the simmer pot. There is a little light on the front of the simmer pot that shows it is on.  In no time, the smell of Vanilla Creme was traveling throughout my home.  The scent was really great and very realistic.  Unlike many wax warmers that use light bulbs, the Pink Zebra pot has a warming pad that the top of the simmer pot sits on and it quickly melts the wax sprinkles.   This is great because you do not have to replace light bulbs. There is a handy on/off switch on the cord for easy operation.   Their sprinkles come in lots of great scents and the warmer comes in three colors so you can get a warmer and a selection of sprinkles to please just about anyone on your gift list.  Mommy Ramblings thinks Pink Zebra Home Simmer Pots and Sprinkles belong on our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide so you will find them there.

Each box contained one of these cards.

Ah Goo Baby, Grab-And-Go-Bag Review & Give-Away!!!

I recently had the opportunity to review the Grab-And-Go-Bag from Ah Goo Baby.  I chose the Kiwi green color because that is my one son’s favorite color.  This is a great size messenger type bag with adjustable padded shoulder strap and loads of compartments and pockets to hold everything you need.  It is a medium size and nothing about it screams baby bag or diaper bag, so you can use it with or without your baby in tow.  I am a person that brings a lot with me when we go somewhere and I am never one that goes out with a clutch because I just like to be prepared.  I am the person to come to if you need wipes, sanitizer, tissues, snacks…I think you get the picture.

This bag is a great size and looks like a regular messenger bag.  The interior has net pockets to hold bottles, sippy cups and more, the side pocket with the flap is great for your cell phone and the other side pocket can hold your keys.  There is a large back pocket in the back and a zippered pocket on the front that has another zippered pocket inside. Toward the bottom on the front, there is a large zippered compartment that is great for holding a changing pad. The front flap of the bag closes securely with a magnetic closure.  I really like this bag and highly recommend it.  It is also available in Espresso.

Grab-and-Go Bag Bullet Image

 

Features:

1. Outer flap zippered pocket with mini pocket for credit cards and change .

2. Gusseted side velcro pocket for quick access to yourmobile phone and keys, while insulated to fit various sized bottles and sippy cups.

3. Expandable lower waterproof compartment that is anideal location for the Ah Goo Baby® Plush Pad®, a second set of clothes, or doubles as a wet section for soiled garments.

4. Zippered see-through mesh pocket for lotions, sanitizer, Ah Goo Baby® Pacifier Pouches or other small items.

5. An adjustable (32 to 52 inch), cushioned shoulder strap and stroller rings to make attaching it to
the stroller a breeze.

6. A second gusseted side pocket, insulated for bottles or sippy cups.

7. An anti-microbial interior lining that can be fully pulled out for easy cleaning and crumb drains in the back pocket of the bag.

8. Ample interior space to carry essentials, including two easy access mesh pockets for the Ah Goo Baby® Travel Wipes Case and an Ah Goo Baby® Diaper Pouch.

The Grab & Go bag is approximately 12 inches wide (when looking at the bag from left to right) by 10 inches tall (when looking at the bag, from top to bottom of the bag), and 5 inches deep (when looking at the bag, from the front to the back of the bag). This does not include the gusseted side pockets which will stretch out to fit most bottles and sippy cups (or mobile phone).

There are also pockets in the back of the bag and inside the top flap. Note that the top flap zippered pocket has an additional inner zippered pocket for change/credit cards.  Similarly, there is a meshed pocket inside the lower bag compartment zippered flap.

The lower compartment, if empty, collapses allowing the full depth of the bag for the top compartment. If clothing or a plush pad is inserted into the lower compartment, it will float the bottom of the bag upward up to approximately 4 inches tall from the bottom of the bag, leaving approximately 6 inches for the top compartment.

• Magnet closures connect effortlessly on their own.

• Machine washable and waterproof fabrics.

ThinkFun Games, Swish Review & Give-Away!!!

If you are looking for a really fun game for ages 8 to adult that can be played by 1 or more players, then I have a great suggestion for you.  I love games that are fun but make you think and I was recently sent the game of Swish from Think Fun Games.  This great game is made of transparent cards and can be played alone or with multiple players.  Swish is great if you like visual puzzles and if you do, you will find that Swish is very addictive. Our family, especially my husband and I really love these kind of games because they are so fun but you are really thinking and you have to be quick to win.  The video below will show you how the game is played more than I could ever tell you here in just words.  So take a look at that now.

Now doesn’t that look fun?  Mommy Ramblings thinks Swish is one great game that is sure to be a hit for any kids 8 and older on your holiday gift list.  We are adding it to our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide.

Swish is a spatial card game that challenges you to be the first to make matches, or “Swishes”. Swishes are made by layering as few as two or as many as 12 cards so that every ball swishes into a hoop of the same color. The cards must be placed on top of each other in the same orientation, and no ball or hoop can be left unmatched. The player with the most matches at the end of the game wins. Various levels of play make this card game addictively fun for all.

•Thinkfun’s first transparent card game
•Includes 60 transparent swish cards
•Game-go bag included

Recommended Ages: 8 years & Up

Somersault Snack Co.,Somersaults Snack Assortment Review & Give-Away!!!

Celebrate The Power of Seeds!!!

Do you know how healthy sunflower seeds are for you?  Somersault Snack Co. does, sunflower seeds, the #1 ingredient in Somersaults, are a nutritionally dense food, power packed with antioxidants, protein, vitamin E, minerals and healthy fats. Sunflower seeds are packed with four times more antioxidants than blueberries, walnuts, and peanuts, boosting the immune system and lowering blood pressure and bad cholesterol. Sunflower seeds offer 17% of the recommended daily allowance of folate in a 1 oz. serving. This essential nutrient is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells and is especially important during pregnancy.  Sunflower seeds have as much potassium as almonds, offering about 200mg of potassium per 1 oz. serving, playing an important role in decreasing blood pressure and establishing proper nerve function and muscle control.  Sunflower seeds are the best whole-food source of vitamin E, a nutrient that may slow the effects of aging, boosts the immune system and prevents cardiovascular disease.

Sunflower seeds have even more health benefits than I have listed above and they are delicious.  Somersault Snacks quest to bake the perfect snack led them to the miraculous sunflower. Somersaults have a healthy bunch of sunflower and sesame seeds in every nugget. In fact, Somersaults are a good source of fiber, vitamin E and offer you the same protein as almonds, but with fewer calories and less fat.  Somersaults are available in  3 convenient sizes and 4 scrumptious flavors.

I recently received a sample assortment of Somersaults.  They were quite unlike any snack food I have had.  The Cinnamon Crunch and Dutch Cocoa were my favorites.  They also have savory flavors like salty pepper and santa fe salsa.  You really taste the sunflowers in these baked crunchy snacks and they are delicious.  The only thing I did not like was their bags, which were really hard to get open.  I had to end up cutting them and even when I used the tear strip above a zip lock seal the bag did not open right and it took a lot of tugging, pulling and ripping before I could open the bag.  This is not a big deal if you are in your kitchen but if you are taking them along on a hike or are in the car, it can pose a problem.  My constructive suggestion to them would be to make the packaging more user-friendly.  Other than that, these delicious unique snacks are packed with tons of flavor and nutrition to get you through your busy days.

Good news, Somersault Snack Co. is sponsoring a give-away on Mommy Ramblings.  One lucky blog reader will win an assortment of Somersaults Snacks.  Thank you Somersault Snack Co. for the review snacks and for sponsoring this delicious give-away on Mommy Ramblings!!!  Open to US residents.

Disney’s Prep & Landing Arrives on DVD November 22nd!!! Review & Give-Away!!!

It’s an all-new Modern Christmas tale!

This coming holiday, Disney invites audiences of all ages to make Prep & Landing (the all-new modern classic Christmas tale) part of their family’s “must own” holiday-viewing collection!  Arriving to DVD on November 22, 2011, Prep & Landing is the perfect blend of Christmas spirit, humor and entertaining characters that will keep the entire family grinning from ear-to-ear. Complete with two new bonus shorts – “Tiny’s Big Adventure” and “Operation Secret Santa” (which features Betty White as the voice of Mrs. Clause) – Prep & Landing will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.99 in the U.S. and $24.99 in Canada. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer for all ages! For more information on this release, please visit www.Disney.com/PrepAndLanding.

PREP & LANDING is an adorable holiday story about a high-tech team of elves who ensure homes around the world are properly prepared for their visit from Santa. After working for a tireless 227 years, an elf named Wayne, voiced by Dave Foley (Disney●Pixar’s A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Cars), is upset when he doesn’t receive an expected promotion. Instead he is partnered with an idealistic rookie elf named Lanny, voiced by Derek Richardson (TV’s “Men in Trees”), to execute a special Christmas Eve mission. While on their journey, Wayne and Lanny encounter unexpected challenges that push them to their limits and ultimately threaten Christmas for children around the world. Bonus features include entertaining Elf training videos shot in Santa’s workshop, “Operation Secret Santa” and much more!

Scala Women’s Winter Cloche Hat Review & Discount Code!!!

Dorfman Pacific

Looking for a stylish, warm hat for Winter?  You should check out the Scala Women’s Winter Cloche.  The Cloche is a packable, crushable wool hat that comes in lots of great colors.  The style looks great on just about everyone and is so comfortable because it is made of soft shirred boiled wool.  I received this hat for a review on Mommy Ramblings.  I really love this hat because it is able to be packed and you do not have to worry if it gets squished or sat on because it just goes right back into shape.  It is a great hat to put on to keep warm during a Holiday Tree Lighting or for a nice walk. It has a great style, nice brim and is very versatile as it can be both dressy and casual.

Through the month of December (starting 11/15), the brand will offer Mommy Rambling’s readers  a special deal: 20% off and free ground shipping (US delivery only) with promo code ScalaPronto on Womens-Hats.com. Great for the Holidays, self and gift purchases, this offer should not be missed!
