Kidzies "Huggerz" Review (Holiday Gift Guide 2011)



Have you ever heard of Kidzies? If you haven’t, well let me tell you about how wonderful Kidzies products are for anyone with children. Kidzies products are here to make mommy and daddy’s lives a little easier, but at the same time offer comfort, and fun for children.

“If it’s not unique enough or doesn’t enhance my kiddos life, it certainly does not become a Kidzies product!”-Kidzies

Kidzies sent me the “Huggerz” product to do a review on. Huggerz is a drink insulator for children that offers Sweatless Technology, but does it in style by offering a fun & functional way to keep little hands warm & drinks cool. Huggerz help to eliminate the spreading of germs. You can choose from over 100 designs illustrated by the owner of Kidzies Amanda Siedel. You can even have it personalized like I did with the name and photo!!

I was really excited about doing a review on the Huggerz product! I couldn’t wait for it to get here. I wanted to get a pic of my daughter opening it and capturing her face expression when she first saw it. Of course, that didn’t happen! My hubby & daughter checked the mail and they like to open up my packages and mail. My hubby walked in the door and said, “What is this? This is so cool whatever it is!” I told him. He said our little rugrat princess was so excited seeing her picture and wondering what it was. He said she held it all the way home! When she walked in she kept saying, “Mommy what is this?” I could only imagine the look she had on her face when she seen it for the first time! You can still see the happiness on her face an hour later. She’s happy that she has something for her drinks like mommy.

I loved how clear and great the picture looked on the Huggerz. I thought it would have like the blurry look to it since it was getting put onto a product. Kind of like how some t-shirts or mouse pads look after being personalized with pics. I absolutely love how beautiful the letters are and I just think everything looks perfect overall. I love how soft the Huggerz is and that it doesn’t sweat!! I was so tired of drinks ruining my furniture because they leave behind those awful rings. My daughter sits her drinks down and the next thing I know there’s a bubble popped up on my end table!

You can literally fit any size kids cup into the Huggerz. I used a soft drink can on the first pic to show the smaller version and then found my daughters huge water bottle to show you how big of a size cup you can fit. We tried it on her princess sippy cup also and it fitted perfectly around it.


We love our new Huggerz! It’s absolutely wonderful not to hear my rugrat princess complaining about her little hands being cold from her drink. She likes showing it off to everyone because she thinks it’s so cool that her picture’s on it. Now when she’s playing with her Barbie’s or outside playing with friends we don’t have to worry about her drink getting warm and putting it back in the fridge. Huggerz is definitely a product we couldn’t live without now that we have it!!

About Kidzies:

The inspiration behind Kidzies is all to do with a 4 year old named Jett. Jett is the son of Amanda Siedel owner of Kidzies. One day while outside Amanda found herself using a insulator for her drink but nothing around little Jett’s drink. She thought to herself, “What sense does that make?” She started using an insulator for his drinks daily. Then one day she forgot to and she heard a little voice cry out, “Mama, I need my kidzies!” She started ironing on foam designs onto the “huggerz” which turned out not so pretty at all. The ones that promoted factories and bars soon were replaced by trains and cars. After mixing a little luck and a lot of prayer, “Kidzies” was born.

Black Friday Ads for 2011 (Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, Kohl’s, Sears, Amazon & More!)



With Black Friday approaching in a few days I thought I would post some of the Black Friday ads of some of the stores I like. I don’t know if you set your alarm clocks for 4 am to go stand in line, or go to your favorite stores website and do plenty of clicking, or maybe you just decide not to mess with the headache at all. Either way here are some of the stores Black Friday ads, all you need to do is click on it and it will take you to their Black Friday deals.

By the way last year was the first time I had ever been Black Friday shopping and man was it CRAZY!!! I about died 15 times from being smothered by shoppers at Wal-Mart for just trying to get something located beside their legs in a box. You had to reach down low to grab what you needed and had to dig through so many things to get what you needed. People were already grabbing and throwing items to the side for them before the managers even told us to start! Some people were going off on the ones doing that. By the time I got to the item I REALLY WANTED there wasn’t any left. I would suggest you not to go to Wal-Mart for Black Friday because their so cheap when it comes to things!! Their so unorganized (well my store anyway). They didn’t have half of the items they advertised and after the sale I found out I could get the same items for the same price days later. I wasted all my time, sleep, and almost died for NOTHING!!! This year I’m moving on to bigger and better things like Best Buy! Besides I don’t care to save $2 on one item such as a freaking kids hoodie!! Smile I will let you know how my Black Friday trip goes and what store/stores I decide to go to!


Make sure you go to for all your latest Black Friday needs!! You can find just about every Black Friday ad for any store here. Another cool thing is that you can subscribe to receive updates on any *new* Black Friday ad that gets added.
