Contain This! Review

Standard

I’ve searched a lifetime, trying to find that perfect product to keep my sandwiches from being soggy! I remember being a kid, and getting my sandwich out for lunch. It’d be flat and soggy! YUCK! I would ask my friend to share her lunch. There’s nothing more gross, than a soggy sandwich! There’s nothing better, than a delicious sandwich whenever we, go on a picnic, to the waterpark, zoo, or just travel. Usually, I separate everything, because I always end up with a soggy sandwich! When I had the opportunity to review, “Contain This!” I was really ecstatic! Contain This! is a container, made to keep your dry ingredients, separate from your wet ingredients. While keeping your ingredients cold and fresh, until your ready to munch down! I wanted to put this product to the test, and see if I could say goodbye, to those soggy sandwiches!

For the first experiment, I packed my hubby a plain ham sandwich for lunch. I didn’t want to try any extra meat, or condiments for the first time. Now what’s awesome, about this product, is that there’s a little tray at the bottom called, “PerfectCHILL” and you put it in the freezer the night before, and then put it back into place right before you make your sandwich. It keeps your food cold just like a freeze block would! How neat is that? This is what keeps your meat, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, etc. cold until your ready. In lab controlled tests, PerfectCHILL was proven to keep contents under 40 degrees for 5 hours and under room temperature for a full 8 hours.

Placing it in the freezer the night before, all I had to do was place my ham on top. Like I said, I didn’t want to try anything extra at first. If you have more ingredients to use,  you can expand the FLEXtech divider. The FLEXtech divider is the part where the bread sits. It has the bread symbol on top. This can push downwards, or upwards just depending on how many ingredients your going to add. I didn’t use a lot of ingredients, so I just kept it pushed downward. The FLEXtech divider creates a water tight barrier, between the fresh moist ingredients and your bread.

Finally, I added the bread above the moist ingredients. Then WHA-LA you have a perfect sandwich! I love that it has a latch to keep the container tight, so no air gets inside to make your bread feel stiff. Your ingredients stay nice and secure. When using sandwich bags, sometimes my ingredients are all over the place. My hubby was just as excited to try this as I was. He took it to work, came home and told me that it was, “Excellent!” He said he didn’t have to worry about the numerous sandwich bags. Especially, not having to worry about cleaning his mess up afterwards! That sometimes gets irritating, when you know your on a time limit for lunch. Now all he has to do, is bring it home to me, and I can easily hand wash it!  Very easy to clean! Saves money and we don’t have to worry about putting the bags in the landfill!

Put the PerfectCHILL tray in freezer the night before, or even hours before making a sandwich!

This is where you will add your moist ingredients (meat, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, etc.)

Bread symbol shows where you place bread. This is also the FLEXtech divider you can push downwards, or outwards depending on the amount of ingredients.

 

This container is BPA and phthalate free plastic which is a HUGE plus! I know I’ll be using it when my daughter starts school. She’ll want a turkey and cheese sandwich! On the first day of using it, I had said previous that I didn’t want to try anything extra. Since then I’ve used a lot of different condiments. I put meat, pickles, lettuce, and onions in the PerfectCHILL tray together. I pushed the FLEXtech divider upwards, because I had more ingredients this time. I even added some mayo to the bread! In the end, we had a perfect soggy – free sandwich! It was delish! You can use this container for numerous items, because of it being an air tight container! I love salad, so that’ll be one I’ll definitely be trying!

This product has definitely amazed me. Therefore, in the end my dreams did come true! No more worrying about soggy sandwiches! I would recommend this to every household, and to at least own one or more! These are great to have around with school starting back. If you don’t have one, your missing out! What are you waiting for? You can buy this for the great price of ONLY $12.99!

Green Toys "Pink Tool Set" Review

Standard

Pink Tool Kit - Green Toys™ - Good Green Fun™

Green Toys Inc. makes an awesome line of classic children’s toys constructed from recycled plastic and other environmentally friendly materials. This helps reduce fossil fuel use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improving the overall health and happiness of the planet. Green Toys have such a nice variety of toys from vehicles, building blocks, cookware, gardening sets, tea sets, indoor/outdoor toys, and even a teething toy for babies! They have toys for children of all ages!

I’ve always been a fan to any green product! I’m a real HUGE fan to green toys! I mean what’s better than knowing your child is playing with a toy, that has been recycled, and made out of environmentally friendly materials! That’s why I couldn’t wait to review the “Green Toys™ Pink Tool Set”.  I knew my little rugrat princess would be so excited! As I’ve said before, she’s a mixture between a princess, but a tom boyish rugrat at the same time! She always using her daddy’s tools to play with. That’s why I knew this tool set would be a huge hit for her!

When she opened the package up, and seen what was inside, she was so excited! She wanted to hurry, and open it, and get right to work! She had the biggest grin on her face, and her eyes, were round as an apple! Indeed she got right to work!

Green Toys – Made in the USA

As you can see from the pictures, she loved this tool set! She loves playing with it, right before she goes to bed. She pretends like she’s building mommy something, or fixing something in the house. She told her daddy, “Look daddy now I have tools just like you! I don’t have to play with yours anymore!”

What I really loved about this tool set first off, was that it’s made of recycled plastic, and environmentally friendly materials. Second, that it’s made in the good ole’ USA! Not only that, but this a nice, fun, safe toy that any little girl can enjoy, and have tons of fun for hours! I know my rugrat does! It has a nice variety of tools to use. These tools aren’t made out of cheap plastic either. Like the plastic toys, that end up broken in a week! These are made of hard plastic, that won’t bend or break! Your child can take them outside, and play in the dirt with them, and their easy to wipe clean! Whenever your little girl decides to play house, with her baby dolls, she can get out this tool set, and fix her broken stroller. Maybe even the refrigerator, in her kitchen, that just doesn’t seem to be working right!

I really think this tool set, helps little girls to be independent, and know that they can use tools,  just as well as boys can! I really think it lets little girls express themselves, and show the side that isn’t always about, playing with Barbie’s, baby dolls, and princesses!  It doesn’t end there! I mean who knows, maybe one day when your car breaks down, on the side of the road. Your little girl who’s a grown woman now, just might be able to fix your car! You might get lucky, and be able to skip, those expensive mechanics to do the job ! Just think it all started with her playing with the,“Green Toys™ Pink Tool Set” when she was younger!

Bioken Enfanti "Anti-Dandruff" Review & Giveaway

Standard

SANY0911

Your hair plays such a huge part in your appearance. This is one of the first things a person looks at when having a conversation with you, or when they walk by. That’s why it’s always been important to me to have beautiful, healthy hair, well minus that yucky dandruff and oily hair that I can never seem to get rid of. There’s absolutely nothing worse than a dry, itchy scalp! Wait, I take that back there is! How about an embarrassing head full of “snow” aka dandruff! It’s so hard to wear black, and that’s what I love to wear in clothing. I will say that I’ve wasted plenty of money buying dandruff shampoos that worked for maybe a week, and then I had that annoying itchy scalp come right back! If your in the same situation, look no further! I was sent the BIOKEN Enfanti “Anti-Dandruff” line to do a review on, and to give one away to one of my lucky readers.

The first product I used was the “Scalpi”. On the back it says to use before shampooing. You apply it to a dry scalp and gently massage into hair, and scalp. Leave it on for a few minutes, and then rinse with water. Scalpi was probably my favorite out of the three. I have really oily hair and skin, that comes from my mom’s side of the family. I have to wash my hair just about everyday or it looks like I’ve dumped bacon grease in my hair. Well probably not that bad in one day, but if I went a couple days! The Scalpi really felt like it was just gathering all the oil and dirt from my scalp and bringing it to the top of my head, and washing it straight down the drain. My hair felt so refreshed after using it.

Next was the “Anti-Dandruff Shampoo” which I was really surprised how wonderful it really was. This shampoo goes along way, because it lathers so great. I used a little over a quarter size amount because I have extremely long hair, all the way down my back. I’m also very picky when it comes to my hair products, especially my shampoo! I just loved how fresh my hair felt after using this dandruff shampoo, because other dandruff shampoo I’ve used in the past left my hair feeling yucky and pretty stiff.

Lastly, I tried the “Antiruff Toner” which I had not tried prior to this. I really loved how easy this came out. You just pump a couple pumps of foam into the palm of your hand, and massage it into your scalp for a few minutes. I definitely noticed the lovely smell right away.

All and all I would definitely say that after using these three products it’s cleared my dandruff up, and taken care of my oily hair. My hair has this beautiful shine, and just looks healthy overall. I’ve even noticed that it’s gotten a lot softer. Who doesn’t want all that for their hair?  I would recommend these products to anyone who’s having the same issue that I was having. I don’t know how long I’ve tried to fight this problem. I would get so discouraged, and at times have real low self esteem because of it. Especially back when I was in school. I spent so much money that I don’t even want to think about that!BIOKEN is definitely a brand that I can count on! How about you?

 

.Suffering from dandruff or a dry, itchy scalp? Let Bioken Enfanti’s botanical formula help soothe and heal your scalp and leave healthy, flake-free hair. Simply start with Bioken Enfanti Scalpi to deep cleanse your hair and scalp and follow up with Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Antiruff Dandruff Toner on a daily basis.

"Cadoozles" Mechanical Pencils by Zebra *REVIEW*

Standard

 

image

image

When I was younger and in school I remember I loved using mechanical pencils! I loved putting the lead in them, and overall just writing with a mechanical pencil! What I loved most was not having to get up and sharpen my pencil constantly. It was always embarrassing when the classroom was so quite, and I had to go sharpen my pencil on the teacher’s desk. I’m pretty jealous that I didn’t have the, “Cadoozles” mechanical pencils made by ZEBRA when I was in school. I just had those boring black ones. I know you know which ones I’m talking about!

ZEBRA sent me a package of the “Cadoozles” to do a review on. My little rugrat princess was really excited when she seen these! She said, “Mommy I can take these to school!” She loves all the cool designs on them. She’s never used a mechanical pencil before so she kept breaking the lead. She got the hang of it in no time. She loves to write and draw, so these were great! I love the size of these their perfect for small hands! I also love that they look like a regular pencil. The first day when rugrat took these to school, she came home saying how everyone loved them and wanted one. She gave her best friend one.

Mom and dad these are definitely pencils to add to your shopping list! You can surprise your child especially with Easter coming up, and put these in their Easter basket. I mean you can never have enough pencils right? Especially, ones that are this AWESOME!

Cadoozles come in 6 vibrant graphic themes from sports and space designs to music and ice cream themes. They also come in six different colors!

Introducing… The Ergonomic "UGLee Pen" *Review & Giveaway*

Standard

The Ultimate Grip Pen by Dr. James Lee is a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is designed, created and used by a real physician.

 

Photobucket

 

If your like me your always using a pen for something. Whether it be writing a grocery list out, leaving a reminder on a sticky note, or signing a parent note. I also love to draw, that definitely comes from my dad’s side of the family. Their very artistic! That’s why it’s very important to me to have a pen I that I love. Not only do I want a comfortable pen, but I also need one that makes my hand writing look beautiful! I want a pen that I can rely on. I don’t want one of those pens that have plenty of ink, but just don’t want to work after a week! I have that problem quite often with pens! When I need to hurry and jot down a phone number but my pen won’t seem to work! It aggravates me like no other.

That’s why I’m here to introduce you to a pen that doesn’t compare to any other! I’m so in love with it! I was sent a 3-pack of “UGLee Pens” to do a review on. Seriously, I’ve never used a pen that comes even close to this one! Dr. Lee decided to create his own pen after writing an average of 20 pages of notes a day in Medical school, getting those awful hand cramps! You know which ones I’m talking about! Like many of us, Dr. Lee spent a lot of money trying to find just the right pen that suited his needs, and didn’t cause pain after using it everyday! After getting frustrated in his journey to find the right one, he gave up and decided to start his own journey to create one of his own! Dr. Lee spent eight years trying to come up with a pen that would fit his needs, and expectations of comfort. He went as far as to study the structure of the human hand using X-ray, and researching the attachment, and functions of hand muscles to design the perfect grip! Through all this the “UGLee Pen” was born!

image

UGLeePen provides ultimate comfort, amazing grip and a virtually weightless writing experience that glides over any writing surface.

The UGLee Pen is what I call the “comfort pen” because the grip is designed to follow the anatomy of your hand. That way you don’t get cramps in your hand while writing! My hubby and rugrat absolutely love this pen! My hubby tells everyone about them, and tells them they should try it for themselves! Let me just tell you something about my hubby, he’s definitely not a person who writes! I was really surprised how he kept complimenting this pen, because I’ve only seen him write a few times in eight years! My rugrat tries to steal my UGLee pens all the time, but she knows to bring them back because she knows how much I love them. They love how comfortable they’re, and how wonderful they feel between your fingers! I would definitely recommend this pen to anyone!

Did you know?

– UGLee Pen was featured on the show, “The Doctor’s”

– There’s 7 different colors to choose from with blue, black or red ink!

image

– UGLee Pen has smoothest ink system known, smoother than any roller ball, gel ink, or fountain ink pen.

– Only weights 11 grams (less than 1/2 ounce) Less mass, means less inertia, more comfort.

– The overall shape as well as the detailed contours are perfectly engineered to follow the anatomy of the hand. You don’t have to grip it, it grips you!

–  UGLee pencil coming soon!

The Libman Company: "Freedom Spray Mop" Review/Giveaway ***ENDED***

Standard

SANY0650

What can I say, when it comes to mopping, I’m not a huge fan! The mops always seem to leave an awful smell, no matter how clean I try to keep them! This all changed when I was sent the, “Freedom Spray Mop” from The Libman Company for review.

SANY0700

The “Freedom Spray Mop” gives you the freedom to use your own cleaning solution. You can put whatever you want, whether it be your favorite cleaner, environmentally friendly solution, or just plain water! You don’t have to buy those expensive cleaning pads, because the cleaning pad for this mop is machine washable up to 50 times! Reduces waste while saving you money! No batteries needed for this mop, because it comes with a self-powered solution sprayer that has a comfort fit trigger! It’s up to you to control how much you spray to clean those solution-sensitive surfaces!

 SANY0665 SANY0677

I absolutely love this mop! I don’t think there’s a better mop out there! In fact, I’m almost positive! I love that you can use your own cleaning solution. This way I know what’s going on my floors, when my child crawls and plays on them. That goes for the pets too! The spray mops I’ve used in the past, had all those harmful chemicals, that wasn’t safe for my child, or pets!

SANY0688

With other spray mops, I was constantly buying cleaning solution, and A LOT of disposable cleaning pads! It got very expensive! With the “Freedom Spray Mop” I will be able to go out, buy my cleaning pad, use it, wash it, and use it over and over again! How great is that? Not only is this helping the environment, but helping my pocket at the same time! Now I have the freedom to do WHATEVER I want!! Having this choice, plus saving me a lot of money, makes me very happy! It doesn’t get any better than this folks!

       SANY0667SANY0675

I was really pleased with this mop! Not only because of all the great things I listed above, but because of the performance of this mop. It was so easy to take the refill bottle out, and fill it back up with my own solution. I thought the trigger would be hard to squeeze, and trying to mop but was brilliantly surprised at how easy it was! The sprayer is awesome! I was able to control how much solution I wanted on my floors. I love how gentle, and comfortable it rolled across them. The cleaning pads are so easy to remove, and replace. They have velcro on the back of the pad, and made onto the mop. Two things I love, NO MORE DIRTY MOP BUCKET & having amazingly, beautiful floors at the same time!

SANY0654

Mopping Tips:

-Dissolve a teaspoon of car wax in a half gallon of water. Fill up the bottle of the Libman Freedom Spray Mop and clean your windows. It helps keep dust and rain spots away from your windows.

-Fill your Libman mop with warm water and lemon soap or lemon juice and wash your deck with a Libman mop. The scent will help to keep the mosquitoes away!

-For cleaning no-wax floors, use 1/4 cup vinegar and one drop of liquid dish soap to one gallon of water. Cleans and shines with no rinsing.

-Use a cup of baking soda mixed with warm water and your Libman mop to clean up grease or scuff marks on floors!

For more tips go here

 

Why Should I Buy This Mop?

"Send A Ball" Review *Holiday Gift Guide 2011*

Standard

If your looking for a cool, but yet cute gift idea for Christmas, then I have just the right one for you! I was sent a, “Send A Ball” to review. You may ask what’s a, “Send A Ball”? It’s the neatest idea I’ve seen, that gets delievered through postal service mail! It’s an inflatable ball, where you can put any personal message, or buy the ones that already have messages wrote on them. The person you send the ball to, will hear a knock on the door, to find the mailman holding a ball. Reaching to put the ball into their hands! How cool is that? The expression on their face, or the laughter they have will be priceless! This will be something they will remember years down the road.

My little rugrat princess was really excited, when she seen her daddy holding the ball, after checking the mailbox! It was so exciting, getting a present like that.. Especially, being a ball with a message wrote on it, with our address on the other side! My rugrat, absolutely loves any kind of ball you can think of! She has a collection of them! This is why it was so cool for her to receive this one. My hubby thought it was a really awesome idea, and couldn’t get over the fact, that the ball was delievered like that!

About Send-A-Ball

Sendaball Inc., is a family business headquartered in Chicago. It is owned by a couple of BALLSY sisters who live across the street from each other in the same northwestside Chicago neighborhood they grew up in. They have been sending balls since the 90s, but one day in 2003, it seemed this CRAZY idea was meant to be a BUSINESS.

Michele had been sending silly things, through the mail over the years, that she was pretty familiar with how the mailing rules worked.

One day I was in Osco, saw a BIN of bouncy balls, grabbed one and thought “I can mail this”. Took a sharpie, addressed it to my BFF Sharon, wrote “Have BALL with your new baby”, went to the post office and mailed it. Sharon loved it so much, my sister and I sent them again and again to other friends. A few years later while standing in line at the post office, a guy behind me asked about the balls and asked if I could send one for him. Initially I instructed him in the steps to do it himself, but by the time we got to the front of the line, he had given me the info and $5. Laughing, I called my sister and told her how funny that just was. She said, ” MICH, I THINK WE ARE ONTO SOMETHING”. –Michele

Melisa explained, to her sister Michele that she had been to OPRAH the night before, and it was about women, who took a chance & started their own business with unique ideas. She told her sister to listen to her, and told her that all these have to be “signs” for them to start their own business!

What kind of “Send A Balls” can I send?

-If you buy the, “Love (bounced into my heart)” ball, Sendaball will donate a $1 to the, “American Heart Association’s GO RED for WOMEN campaign!”

-Company was started by two sisters who live across the street from each other

Many of the people who get a sendaball in the mail, order a ball for someone else

$5 OFF-Use Coupon Code: JOLLY
*EXPIRES DEC. 15th*

 

Overall, I would recommend these balls for any occasion! Such a wonderful idea with Christmas right around the corner. The balls are a little pricey for myself being $16 each plus, shipping. It’s well worth it though, just to know you’ll make someone’s day, putting a smile upon their face by sending one! Children love balls so it’s a toy they can keep around the house for a while. They’ll be excited to receive the ball through the mail.

Glow Crazy "Distance Doodler" Review *Holiday Gift Guide 2011*

Standard

Glow Crazy Distance Doodler -  BIGiggle - Toys"R"Us

Do your children like glow in the dark stuff? My little rugrat princess sure does! Let me tell you about this wonderful, and amazing product called, “Distance Doodler” by Glow Crazy that I was sent to do a review on. This toy isn’t like any other glow in the dark toy I’ve ever seen. My little rugrat princess absolutely loves things that glow in the dark so, I knew she would be extremely excited about the, “Distance Doodler!” When it arrived, I couldn’t wait to give it to her. She was jumping up, and down wondering what it was. Let me just tell you, my hubby was literally more excited than she was! If you can picture that! I haven’t seen them get this excited about something, for quite sometime! I have to say, I couldn’t even wait to try it out.

                      SANY0485  SANY0479                     

It comes with, the magic lightwand, 3 color clings, 3 super clings, 4 stencil sheets, and a fun tip booklet! You stick the clings to a clean wall, door, or even ceiling! What’s so cool, is you’ll be able to remove the clings whenever you want, and replace them somewhere else! *Clings Not Recommended For Wallpaper* The lightwand takes 2 AAA batteries, so parents don’t forget those! You can tell from the smile on rugrat princess face that she loves this!

SANY0489SANY0488 

You can use the lightwand (which is a laser light), to draw pictures in the dark onto the clings. You can draw and write at the same time! You can even draw cool designs 10 feet away! You’ll have cool features like the “Widebeam Erase Feature” to help erase the drawings, you might have messed up on. The “Silhouette Feature” is cool, to use for shadow puppets, or a shadow or yourself! Play tic-tac toe or glow tag!

SANY0504

You can also, use the awesome stencils that comes with it, to make some beautiful pictures like I made above! 🙂 It’s a seahorse, turtle, and fishies! You’ll find rockets, stars, trucks, cars, and moon stencils. Maybe, you even want to make your own stencils? You’ll find cool tips, to help you with that and tons more in the, “Fun Tip Booklet”. This product, is for ages 6 and up, but I don’t see why it’d be a problem with younger kids, as long as there’s parental supervision! This is a great product to draw on the wall with, instead of little ones using crayons. The buttons are very easy to push.

It’s just hours, and hours of fun! A great product, to have whenever the electricity is out! I know my child gets so bored, if we have a bad storm, and the electricity is out. I don’t think we’ll have that problem anymore! We loved it so much, that we went out, and bought the little rugrat princess the, “Doodle Dome” for Christmas. It’s a glow in the dark tent, that you can write all over. Another, Glow Crazy product that I know we’ll love! I will post a review on that once we’ve tried it out! The only thing, about the “Distance Doodler” that was a little hard for me, was the two buttons. Not being able to see them in the dark, to know which one did what. I kept mixing them up, when I was writing with them! Other than that, this product is perfect! We absolutely loved it! Our little nephew came over the other day, and played with it. He loved it, and wants one for Christmas! Mommy, and daddy is now keeping the “Distance Doodler” since we bought the, “Doodle Dome” for rugrat princess!

SANY0503

The “Distance Doodler” is definitely worth the price! I seen them at our Wal-Mart, but most stores are SOLD OUT! This would make an awesome, Christmas present this year, and any year after!

Go to www.glowcrazy.com to grab yours!

My "Oral-B & Crest Pro-Health For Me" Cars 2 Party!

Standard

SANY0385  SANY0387

Oral-B Stages is recommended by dentists, accepted by parents and preferred by kids!

I was extremely excited to find out I was chosen by MommyParties to host an, “Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health For Me” Cars 2 party to help educate mommy’s and their children the importance of dental health. Dental health is such a huge part of our everyday lives, and it’s so important to teach your children at a very young age the importance of taking care of their teeth. As soon as your child gets their first tooth you should visit a dentist. To help with the fun on hosting the party I was sent a huge box full of goodies that included the following:

Crest Pro-Health For Me Mouth Wash
Crest Pro-Health For Me Toothpaste
Disney Princess & Toy Story Oral B Stages Kids’ Flosser Packs
Oral-B Pro-Health For Me Floss Picks
Disney Princess Oral B Stages Toothbrushes
Oral-B Pro-Health For Me Toothbrushes
Cars 2 DVD
Cars Gummies Vitamins (Sample packs)
Popcorn
Popcorn Boxes
Balloons
Coupons

Oral-B Stages III (kids 5-7), Crest & Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME (kids 8+) is the first and only complete line of oral care products for tweens created to protect all the areas dentists check in kids including fighting cavities, strengthening teeth enamel and freshening their breath.

SANY0412

The night before the party the rugrat princess, and I put together all the goody bags for the guest. We put the toothbrushes, toothpaste, flosser picks, gummies vitamin sample packs, coupons and balloons in them. We added a few extra goodies in the bag like activity sheets, coloring pages (dental fun), 4 crayons, reward charts for brushing teeth (where you can earn tokens for Chucke E. Cheese), and a few extra goodies.

When the guest arrived I had our small concession stand set up. The rugrat princess collected ticket stubs at the door and helped with the concession stand. She had a blast doing this! We served our guest popcorn, and Kool-Aid Bursts for snacks while watching the premiere of “Cars 2”. We had pigs in a blanket, sandwiches, and chips throughout the party. Everyone loved the “Cars 2” movie it was a really big hit with everyone. What can I say?? We love our Mater!!

The kids also really enjoyed playing the games. We first played the, “Yucky & Healthy Mouth” game where the kids, took turns putting the yucky or healthy items, on the yucky side or healthy side of the poster. Then, we had another game where we took cotton balls (teeth), and clothes pins (dental pliers). I told them if they don’t take care of their teeth,  the dentist will have to pull their teeth out. The game was to see how many cotton balls, we could pick up, with the clothes pins and hurry to the other side of the room, and put them in a bowl. Let’s just say, I should have used something other than clothes pins, because that didn’t go to well! In the end, the kids just started using their hands, grabbing cotton balls, and putting them in the bowl. Everyone received a prize (silly teeth) for their participation, and my not so well of a plan! I had 2 bottles of “Crest Pro Health For Me Mouth Wash” to giveaway to two lucky moms. I had the mommy’s play trivia to see who got the most correct answers to win.

One mommy was very happy to win the, “Crest Pro Health For Me Mouth Wash” because she said, “I’m suppose to buy my daughter some really expensive mouthwash, and it get’s really expensive after a while. I can’t wait to try this!”

I told her the price of this mouthwash, and she was happy to learn of the information! She loved that it was the age group of her daughter!

Every good thing must come to an end…..unfortunately!

It was time for everyone to say their goodbyes. They grabbed their goody bags and headed home to brush the kernels out of their teeth. I was very pleased on how the party turned out, and we had an awesome good time! The kids loved the balloons of course! They also loved all the character items in their goody bags. They wanted their Cars Gummies vitamins, as soon as they saw them! They said they were very yummy! The mommy’s didn’t want them to open their toothbrushes, and things until they got home, because they didn’t want them to lose them all around the house.

The rugrat princess, and I was very interested in trying everything out for ourselves after the party had ended. Her favorite item is the, “Disney Princess Oral-B Stages Kids’ Flossers” because she loves how they get all the yucky stuff out of her teeth, and their pretty! I like the “Crest Pro Health For Me Mouth Wash” because it has an awesome taste compared to others, and I think children will really love this mouthwash! I also love the, “Oral-B Pro Health For Me Toothbrushes” because their so comfortable on your teeth, and they reach the hard to get to areas. I think this will really help children when they miss certain areas of their teeth while brushing. I also love the taste of the toothpaste.

I received phone calls the next day, from the mommy’s that were at the party saying, their children couldn’t wait to get home to brush their teeth! One mommy said, “My son kept carrying the goody bag everywhere, and wanted to even sleep with it!” I thought, that was so cute! The mommy’s were very thankful for their stuff, and can’t wait to do it again!

Thank you to MommyParties, Mom Select, Oral-B, & Crest for the wonderful opportunity, to be able to host such an amazing party!
