She {hearts} Manhattan Toy: Groovy Girls

I have two doll loving girls in my house, they love them all…from baby to barbie; the little teeny tiny hard plastic ones, and super groovy plush dolls. We can’t have enough.

Groovy Girls is a brand of Manhattan Toy and they’re doing something right. My girls (ages ranging from 3-8) love the Cali Candy Cane doll we were sent. She’s soft enough for my three year old to snuggle with and my eight year old loves how trendy and stylish she looks. Even the one year old boy thinks she’s grand (of course he plays by holding onto one of those long legs and swinging her around like a club).

Cali Candy Cane is a great addition to your holidays, with her bright and festive attire she’ll fit right in under the tree.

She {hearts} Morphology

Morphology LogoMy family loves playing board games, so when someone sent me a link to Morphology, I couldn’t wait to try it!  Morphology is a board game in which players must use what appears to be a random assortment of items to get their teammates to guess a particular word.  Various challenges are added as the game progresses, and everyone has to use a lot of creativity and work under the pressure of the clock!

When we received our copy of Morphology in the mail, we decided to play it with three different groups of people so that we could give it a thorough review.

Morphology Game2First, I played it with a group of women after a Bible study.  The age range was 25-50+ and the size of the group was around 8 or 9.  Everyone had a blast playing it!  Secondly, I played it with my family (my dad, my mom, and my adult brothers).  It was quite fun in this group as well, even though we had less players.  Thirdly, my husband and I played it with a bunch of teens in our youth group (ages 15-18).  They caught on quickly and had a great time too!Morphology Game

I found the game easy to explain, fun in multiple settings, and unique each time it was played.  While some party games get old rather quickly, I believe Morphology will continue to be fun because of the imagination required to complete each round successfully.

In addition to Morphology, there is also a Morphology, Jr. for younger kids.  Overall, I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a fun new party game to play with family or friends!

She {hearts} Metamorphic Toys

Do you write “love notes” to your family? You will often find me tucking away a cute little note in my son’s lunch box or my husband’s suitcase to remind them just how much I love them and can’t wait to see them again. So when I got a chance to review the Metamorphic Toys Everythingland Mailbox, I knew this would be an easier way to leave those little notes, and also get them involved in writing them as well.

Metamorphic Toys, the maker of Eco-Friendly Educational Art Toys must have been after my heart upon it’s conception. We are a house full of creative souls and unique artists, but we also like to keep things clean and simple too. The Everythingland Mailbox comes bare as can be, a raw and blank canvas of Made in the USA recycled materials. I love how my kids were able to exercise their minds by discussing how we were going to decorate and personalize the mailbox, before ever opening a jar of paint or holding a marker in their hands. They talked about their favorite colors and shapes, and what was going to go where on the mailbox. They even spent a lot of time picking which of the Eco-Art U-Stick’Em’s they were going to use. My 3 and 5 year old didn’t come up with a very cohesive theme, but they did work together and the end product was a creation of their own imaginative minds.

Now, the mailbox sits in the living room, where everyday someone leaves a cute little note of love and appreciation for another member of the family. I am a big fan of “warm fuzzies” and that is what you get when you read a letter or receive a colored picture, that is made especially for you, found in the Family Mailbox.

Metamorphic Toys, maker of Green Toys that Inspire Creativity and Imaginative Play would love for you to check out ALL of their products, found on their website.

I have been a soothie pacifier user since my second baby (number one never took to any pacifier). I liked multiple things about the brand, a few of them being:

all one piece – no cracks or crevices for bacteria to hide
the pacifier doesn’t touch babies face – so they wouldn’t get that wet rash around their mouth

Photobucket

So she loved it, I loved it, and we were happy. Except when it would drop to the floor and roll to amazingly distant corners or just disappear only to turn up months later. If you have used soothies you know exactly what I am talking about. I knew with number three I’d prefer to keep the soothie brand but was unsure if I wanted to be chasing the perpetually rolling pacifier again.

WubbaNub’s story begins with a pacifier not staying put, and in a moment of inspiration mommy permanently attached the soothie to a small plush toy.  I loved the idea, I loved the cute plush animals, I knew this was exactly what I was looking for. Of course I got a thumb sucker with my third, seriously attached -he even tries to sneak it in while breastfeeding. The weird thing is though he won’t take his thumb in the car, so that’s where our WubbaNub lives. Ready and waiting for soothing and kindly keeping me from running after the traveling pacifier in parking lots. Photobucket

WubbaNub has a host of adorable animal pacifiers, available at many online stores and local retail shops near you.

Goodnight Moon is a book that most moms have memorized for life. Our copy is getting worn out from so many readings with my almost 2-year-old. Using these familiar pictures Briarpatch has developed their Goodnight Moon Game. With multiple ways to play even their instructions are pretty open-ended.  We play with as many or as little “rules” as we like and all have fun doing so.

Jubilee (20 months) is able to find and match pictures already. In addition, since there are so many ways to play- this game will not only be able to grow with my children but also is one we won’t tire of quickly.

Briarpatch has many enjoyable games to encourage essential skills for our young ones. This pleases them as much as mama, just look at that proud face!

She {hearts} Big Belly Banks

I have a little girl who loves to save…well anything. She rescues scraps of paper, empty containers, plastic lids off bottles…and change, pennies galore! I swear she has a hawks eye for those copper coins and finds them everywhere to lovingly rescue and join the rest of the presidential army in her bank. Her positively awesome blue (favorite color) dolphin (second favorite animal) bank.

Big Belly Banks supplies your not-so-everyday bank, made of wood with a plastic belly you place your coin in the mouth and watch as it gets eaten up and stored till you need it back. The belly is easy to get into by unscrewing the bolt holding it together, we’ve had to open ours a few times so we can feed our dolphin once again – because there’s something wonderfully satisfying that comes with watching your coin zig-zag down an animals neck.
