She {hearts} RUND baby

If you’re a mom, a grandmother, or someone who cares for little ones on a regular basis, you’re going to want this product as soon as you see it.  I fell in love with it at first sight!anywherechair

Introducing… the Anywhere Chair from RUND baby!  This “chair” (actually a uniquely shaped piece of fabric) simply fastens onto a normal chair to create a highchair for your baby or toddler anytime and anywhere you need it!  Genius, I’m telling you.  And what else would you expect from a talented mompreneur?  Melissa of RUND baby is a mom of three and manages this Etsy business from her home, creating products that are innovative and beautiful.  (Not a mom? Check out her tote bags and cash envelope systems!)rund_baby_toddlers

I tried out the Anywhere Chair with my 1 year old and my 2.5 year old, and it worked perfectly for either of them!  My 2.5 year old actually begged to be put back in it again after we took photos.  The hook and loop fastening in the back was strong enough to keep my lunging 1 year old from unfastening it, and the whole system was easy enough to quickly secure my very wiggly 2.5 year old.  The entire chair folds up neatly and can be shoved in a diaper bag or kept in the car.  It is machine washable and is made with beautiful designer fabrics!  (My print is called “Windy Day,” in case you’re wondering.)rund_baby_detail

This would make a great gift … but I know you want to buy one for yourself too!  Fortunately, we also have a giveaway today (yay!).

She {hearts} MiMi’s Soda Shoppe

customized name plaques

A few years ago, a sweet friend of mine Aliesha, her mother Valerie, gifted me with one of the most precious gifts. She custom made me name matted prints, framed with my boys names in them. At the time she created them for my 1st three children. I loved them! I told her if we ever had any more kids she would have to make us more.

A few weeks before Reed was born, she sent me another….

I loved seeing my baby’s name on the print… knowing that in a few short weeks I would be meeting him. It was a precious gift to get before he was born. I cannot wait to move into our new home and set up a wall with all my boys photographs framed and these prints proudly shining.

I love the effort she puts into making them but also how personal they are to us. With our prints I never even gave her scripture… she found pieces of scripture though that just went perfect with the meanings of each one of my boys names. I loved that!

If you are looking for a perfect keep sake for your children, this is it. Mimi’s Soda Shoppe like I mentioned above is owned by my friend Aliesha’s mom, Valerie. She not only home schooled all 3 of her children. She is also incredibly talented in so many areas and this is one of them. If you have a friend who is due to have a baby, this would be an amazing shower gift… and one that I know they will absolutely love.

She {hearts} Puj

baby boom virtual shower

Puj (pronounced “pudge”) is a company founded by a creative couple seeking to create products to “simplify parenthood.” As a parent, I know most of us need all the help we can get while on this crazy, challenging, ever-rewarding journey!

Puj‘s innovative products are not only appealing because of their purpose to simplify the care of your baby, but also because of their stylish and modern designs. Puj’s products include the Puj Tub (a soft, space saving, baby cradling bathtub), the Puj Flyte (an even more compact, space saving, travel friendly baby bathtub), Puj Unos (adorable, breathable, machine-washable, symmetrical baby shoes) and the Puj Snug (a flexible, ultra soft bathtub spout cover that is mildew resistant and made from recycled materials).

Puj graciously sent me a Puj Snug to try out. Not only is this soft spout cover adorable, but I love that it is non-absorbent to resist mold and mildew. My crazy kids love to splash around in the tub, so bumps are inevitable. I love the protection that the Snug provides to their baby shampooed heads! The Snug is also BPA/formamide/PVC free and made from reclaimed materials. It is flexible to fit most any bathtub spout, while still giving easy access to the shower diverter. I also love how the water still runs out of the faucet normally with the Snug, unlike other similar products that I’ve tried that make the running water spray everywhere and freaks my kids out! My kids LOVED having a new “friend” in the tub with them during bathtime, and my 3 year old daughter was sure to keep Mr. Elephant clean and rinsed. The day after their first bath with the Sung, my 22 month old son was eating dinner and announced “There’s an elephant in there!” when I mentioned bathtime. Needless to say, the Snug was a hit in our household, for both mama and babies!

Puj’s baby care products range from $15 to $45 and can be purchased directly through their website. Also, be sure to “like” Puj on Facebook and follow Puj on Twitter to stay in the loop on new products and more giveaways of their fun products!

She {hearts} Schoenhut Piano Company

sch

IMG_9387How many of us out there get ready in the morning by listening to Pandora or a favorite play list on itunes? I for one do this almost every time. I love music.

So why shouldn’t we let our children enjoy music as well?

I am the type of mom who unfortunately am not a huge fan of musical instruments right now. My kids are young and have no clue on how to play peacefully :) with any type of musical object. It usually ends up being a terrible racket of noise that drives me totally mad.

The Schoenhut Piano Company has an adorable line of miniature piano’s for toddlers though, that will totally win you over.

They are absolutely darling.

What I like the most though besides their adorable appearance… is the fact that the sound isn’t terrible loud. It isn’t like those electrical piano’s you get at yard sales…. these Piano’s have a pleasant chime sound, that is much better for the excited little hands that begin to play.

The width of the keys on this piano do promote proper finger placement as well. So if you do plan to encourage Piano lessons later on, this is a great 1st step for the youngest of learners.

She {hearts} Mudpuppy

Mudpuppy Logo

I discovered Mudpuppy when shopping at a fun children’s toy store, and I knew I had to have some of their great products for Vera!  Mudpuppy carries many fun, educational, and unique children’s toys, and I had a blast browsing their site!

Vera loves her new Painter’s Palette Magnetic Letters! She enjoys playing with them on the fridge and hiding them around the house (saying, “Where’s the letters?”). I know we will get a lot of use out of them since she is just starting to learn her ABCs! They will be great for spelling practice later as well (the set includes 40 letters, so there are doubles of commonly used letters). The magnetic letters have a full magnetic backing, as opposed to small magnets that could be swallowed. These are much safer!  I love that they are wooden and that they come in such fun colors!

We’ve also really enjoyed the Mothers & Babies Ring Flash Cards.  The cards teach the names of animals and their young, and since Vera is obsessed with animals, these have been quite a hit.  They are very durable, which is a plus, and the illustrations are quite charming.

She {hearts} Citrus Lane

baby boom virtual shower

Citrus Lane is a unique, very current company that provides monthly subscriptions for boxes filled with fun, practical parent-approved baby and toddler products and items. Each month has a new box theme based on the current season and customer feedback. Best of all, each “best-of” item is a surprise!

Here’s how Citrus Lane works. The great minds at Citrus Lane choose products for their monthly boxes that not only really work, but also have had great feedback from real parents and fulfill a need of parents. To subscribe to their incredible monthly boxes, simply sign up on their website, including your child’s birthdate (up to 3 years) and gender (if desired), and Citrus Lane will cater the items included in each monthly box to you and the stage your child is at. They offer monthly billing and also offer 6 and 12 month packages, which include free boxes!

Citrus Lane‘s boxes are also great for gift giving. Monthly subscription packages are available to purchase as a gift, as well as their Deluxe Shower Box, which is THE perfect present for any mom-to-be. The Deluxe Shower Box includes items such as a swaddling blanket, skin care items, baby toys, and even gift cards for baby announcements. At 32 weeks pregnant with baby #3, I would be beyond delighted if this box happened to show up on my doorstep as we prepare for her arrival!

Citrus Lane sent me their July box. The theme was “Bon Voyage” and focused on items that would be useful as families travel in the summertime. My box included travel-sized gentle skin care products for baby, travel-sized baby detergent, a diaper bag friendly sized baby essentials/first aid kit, a soft baby toy able to clip onto baby’s carseat, a fun bracelet (for mommy!) that is safe for a teething baby, and a coupon to make free postcards on my phone and send them to anyone in the world. SO FUN! I squealed with delight as I studied each product in my box. Even though I’m pregnant with baby #3 (and have tried and been exposed to LOTS of baby products), I’m still constantly on the lookout for useful, tasteful, smart new products and this box alone blew me away! The packaging even made me feel special as I first opened the box. I can’t wait to try out these new products and goodies on our new baby girl.

August’s box will be themed “Back to School” and filled with items to help prepare your child to learn! Check out their cute new video to go with their August box.

{heart} It

Citrus Lane offers monthly box subscriptions for $25 a month, or subscribe for 6 months for $125 (that’s one free box) or 12 months for $250 (that’s TWO free boxes!). Each box’s surprise items will be season-themed and carefully chosen with your child and his/her stage of development in mind.
