Bluebee Pals

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

In.awe. Lily the Lamb has not left Gigi’s side since she arrived last week. Lily the Lamb has been singing Christmas songs for hours daily since she arrived last week. Lily the Lamb is a HIT {Gigi named her Izzy, Lily the Lamb is the product name}…the biggest must have to hit this house in a long time. Meet Lily the Lamb {AKA Izzy} and learn why I’m in awe at the technology behind bluetooth and Bluebee Pals:



I’m not a big bluetooth person, I haven’t used it much, really have no need for it. I had no idea what I was missing, OR how easy it is to use. Our lamb Bluebee Pal {Izzy} is my first full on experience with bluetooth. I can’t say enough how in love we are with this interactive plush toy and the joy it brings our daughter {and sons} everyday. She was very simple to get connected to the iPad. A simple on/off switch on the back, connect button on the ear, make sure bluetooth is on, all set! Pandora was our first stop with Izzy – add the Kids Christmas channel and you have a singing holiday lamb! It’s beyond adorable!


Lily the Lamb answers your calls, she reads you stories, she interacts with app after app. And of course, she’s a beautiful stuffed animal to be your child’s best friend! This couldn’t be more perfect for a holiday gift! Technology amazes me, and this tops the cake for 2014!

Here’s some facts about Bluebee Pals:

  • Advanced technology includes lip synchronization allowing the animal’s “mouth” to move while singing, reading your favorite storybooks or learning apps.
  • Embedded Bluetooth Enabled Speaker 
  • Super Soft Plush Fabric
  • Connects to any Apple or Android device with Bluetooth capabilities (smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops).
  • Use as Hands Free Telephone with built in Speaker and Microphone
  • Rechargeable Battery with USB Micro-charge Cable Included  (Adapter not included).


Izzy {Lily the lamb} was our pick! Which one would be yours?

Baa-Baa-Barn {B. Toys}

Friday, December 12th, 2014

This will be our niece Scarlett’s second Christmas but first official one. Meaning, she was born on December 23rd so Christmas was a bit complicated last year! She will be at such a perfect age to truly enjoy the holiday this year. Her cousins cannot wait to shower her with gifts and watch in her delight! Over the past year, my sister and I have focused on adorable clothes for her and basically forgot that the poor girl needs some toys! Christmas 2014 will be all about the toys for SJ…starting with our favorite go to toy brand, B. Toys.


No joke when I say this is our go to toy brand for gift giving. It’s the first aisle I go down at Target when I have to buy a gift for a young child. Our kids have owned almost every toy they offer! We adore B. Toys and their high quality products. The newest fun we’ve had the privilege of trying out with G and SJ, the Baa-Baa-Barn above.! Little critters and a portable barn for them to frolic in; the littlest girls in our life are having so much fun with this one! With lights and sounds, balls and farm animals, simply add the imagination and you have yourself an afternoon full of fun!




The above are examples of the beauties we’ve been able to pass down from one child to the next, and now on to our niece thanks to the awesome quality and overall fun the B. Toys brand offers! I delight in looking back at pictures of past birthday parties where the kids were opening up a cherished B. Toys gift or we gifted one to another child. You just can’t go wrong with these toys! From toys you can use on the beach to a full fledged {pretty perfect} easel, puzzles, remote control vehicles and so much more! Find that beloved aisle at your local Target and just browse this line. You can’t miss the unique designs and colors, they stand out!

Check out all the products B. Toys has to offer HERE.

Watch and Roll

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

I know I’ve mentioned before, but let me repeat myself since the anxiety is high right now – our family has the terrible threes, NOT the terrible twos. Twos are a piece of cake…threes, not so much. G is 3 1/2 going on 16. Need I say more. Love her to pieces and truly enjoying our one on one time this holiday season while the boys are in school, but boy oh boy does she bring Terrible Threes to a whole new level. Regular everyday errands can turn quickly into nightmare outings. Throw in potty training and I’m not even sure why we leave the house most days. This is child #4 for us, so we know the tricks, and we’ve invented some new ones to get us thru the next year. The key is to keep her busy, the entire time we are out and about, or traveling. She gets her own shopping list, own shopping cart when available, own purse filled with distractions. We sing songs, we play eye spy games…I’m exhausted by the time we get home! Our new favorite errand running tool for a busy, active, overly energetic and drama filled 3 year old – the magnificent Watch and Roll.

The iPad has become a staple on outings for all the kids as well. Of course it’s perfect in the car on long trips, but it comes in so handy in the grocery store cart, in the stroller at the mall, etc… The Watch and Roll gives us an easy, portable, and safe carrying case that can go with us anywhere, and it’s made with the kids in mind! With a carrying handle and a back strap to attach to carts, strollers and car seat head rests, you get some peace as your days take you from store to store to store especially during this crazy holiday season.

My key word on almost all baby and kid products is: Versatile. The Watch and Roll has versatility down! Throw some educational apps on the tablet, place it nice and snug in the Watch and Roll, and off you go for a stress free day! Hands free watching for the little ones so they can snack or hold their favorite blankie while you get that list done! There’s toy loops attached as well for the younger babes that need a teether or toy available at all times. Oh it’s awesome! We are in the day and age where technology is everywhere, and it’s hard to get away from. Yet for parents, as much as we may want to escape the technology age…it’s a lifesaver as well! And the Watch and Roll just makes it that much easier to venture into the crazy world with little ones in tow!
