strapsWhile car seats are a million times safer than they have ever been, those straps still seem to rub and leave red marks on Alice’s neck. I always feel so bad when I see those! I still have straps that rub on that delicate skin at the neck line.

I was thrilled when this adorable set of Bebe Bella Designs Strap Covers arrived. These strap covers are SO SOFT!!! They are made from THE softest minky chenille! I would love to wrap myself in a big ‘ole blanket made of this minky chenille!! At the very least Bebe Bella Designs I’d love adult size strap covers!!

Alice hasn’t had a mark on her neck since we added these strap covers to her car-seat!  I’m thrilled!!  These are quality made strap covers. They strap covers are the perfect size for the car-seat strap. The fit is impeccable, these fit snug!! No give or slip and they stay PUT!!!  These covers don’t slide down away from Alice’s neck. The covers close with a full size, wide piece of Velcro.  Bebe Bella Designs did not skimp on quality, workmanship and details.

The colors are perfect!! Browns, white and pink on one side and a perfect baby pink on the other side. Bebe Bella Designs has other colors available too.

These strap covers truly keep the kids very comfortable in the car. These covers would easily fit the straps on strollers and swings too!  These covers are 100% Polyester. Easy to remove and machine wash. Which by the way, if you have a temporary moment of insanity and give a child, oh say a 2 year old Alice for instance, peanut butter and apple slices….. well, these covers wash up like a DREAM!! They come out of the dryer looking brand new! Wash cold water and tumble dry on low.

Bebe Bella Designs strap covers are made in U.S.A. Check this out! Enter

I was sent Gold Fish to review. Gold Fish is hand painted on a black crewneck sweatshirt.  This gold fish is painted with eco-friendly white paint and highlights of purples and blues.  This is a quality sweatshirt made with 50% cotton and 50 polyester.  The sweatshirt has ribbed cuffs and collar.
The Gold Fish painted on the front is adorable.

The sweatshirt is 100% machine washable. I had absolutely no bleeding of the colors and Gold Fish still looks adorable.
Wear The Paint has men’s and women’s t-shirts and sweatshirts.  They will soon be adding shoes!! I can’t wait to see those!!  I hope Victoria and Claudia add canvas totes too!!  (hint hint!)

I can say without a doubt that Alice prefers story time to television time. ANYTIME!! Two year old Alice would rather cuddle up and read books almost more than a trip to the park. (Almost…) I was thrilled to be allowed to review Elephant Blue by Frances Gilbert. This is a fun rhyming, sing song journey of animals and colors. The illustrations are stunning!!

This book sends Alice’s imagination in to over drive!! Pointing a pictures, asking questions. AND wanting to hear the story AGAIN!  I LOVE that!!! By the way, if there were a chapter for Alice, she said she would be sparkle pink!

Granted, this book is meant for 3rd to 5th graders, but don’t tell Alice that! She loves the poetry of Elephant Blue. The description of the animals, the mention of the colors sparked her to ask questions. What color is chartreuse? What color is RUBY?  Alice loves rhyming books, she loves big book, small books, green books, orange books and she loves Blue Elephants by Frances Gilbert.

This is a soft cover book. There are 26 imaginative pages describing animals with colors that make you SEE them in your minds eye and on the pages.  Cyntia deHahn does a spectacular job with the illustrations.

If you are looking for a book that inspires your child’s imagination, this is it!  4 thumbs WAY up for Elephant Blue!

Along with Elephant Blue, there are tons of excellent books at Kabuki Helps.  Use coupon code Peanutbutter for 10% off!!

Winning Moves has so many GREAT GAMES!!!  From Crocodile Dentist which is still a HUGE hit with the Grandkids to Scrabble with Tile Lock! DH and I never seem to have enough time in the day to sit and play a game board together, so I came up with a running game of Scrabble!!  The board sits on the table all the time. When your initial is on the board it’s your turn. I know it’s not a conventional way to play but, it works for us.

Scrabble has always been a family favorite for us. Now it’s a great on going battle game with DH.  NOW if I could find something to do with these 4 I’s!!! FOUR!!! I see some if, it, is and in’s coming soon to our game.

Not only is playing Scrabble fun!! But it an awesome way to exercise your brain!!!  According to a report by the Alzheimer’s Association, “5 million Americans are affected by Alzheimer’s disease.”  Keeping your brain active is a necessary exercise! A game that stimulates the brain is a perfect way to get that brain exercise!! HELLO Scrabble!! 

It’s not just a theory that ‘playing mental games keeps the brain active!’ The Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Centre did a study that showed the “risk of developing Alzheimer can be reduced by 47 percent by thought-provoking and mind-stimulating activities.” The Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Centre recommends forming a “Scrabble or Mahjong club” to make sure that something is done for the brain regularly.

I’m having FUN, I’m kickin’ DH’s as butt and warding off Alzheimer’s all at the same time!!

So, afraid of developing Alzheimer’s??  Grab a Scrabble board!! This official plastic Scrabble gameboard comes with tile lock system, 100 plastic Scrabble letter tiles, 4 plastic tile racks, 1 drawstring tile bag and instructions.

Tile Lock Scrabble GIVEAWAY!!! Winning Moves has so many GREAT GAMES!!!  From Crocodile Dentist which is still a HUGE hit with the Grandkids to Scrabble with Tile Lock!

Living in Southern California I take the Grandkids to LEGOLAND a LOT!! It’s SO MUCH FUN!!! It amazes me every visit what can be built with LEGOS!!! If you are within driving distance you should make plans for a visit this spring!!! Check this out!!!

CARLSBAD, Calif. (April 21, 2014) – Construction is fast and furious at LEGOLAND® California Resort with the new LEGO® Legends of Chima Water Park presented by Cartoon Network quickly approaching on May 24, 2014. The largest LEGO® model for the new Chima Water Park, a LEGO Lion Temple arch, was installed over Easter weekend. Stretching 18 ½ feet high and 14 feet wide and weighing 2,116 pounds, the LEGO arch will stream water beneath the massive lion head at the entrance to the Lion Temple Wave Pool. Created out of 260,000 LEGO bricks, the arch is the centerpiece of the new Water Park as it “protects” the interactive wave pool designed for families with young children.

The giant LEGO model is positioned in front of Mt. Cavora, the “floating” iconic mountain from the LEGO® Group’s newest hit product “Legends of Chima.” Mt. Cavora is 23-feet tall, 13-feet wide, weighs more than 11,000 pounds and will be releasing 400 gallons of water every minute as it “floats” 40-feet above the wave pool. Construction crews are also hard at work building Eglor’s Build-A-Boat. Much like the interactive play experience introduced with Build-A-Raft River at LEGOLAND® Water Park, Eglor’s Build-A-Boat gives children the opportunity to use their creativity and bring their imaginations to life. Young guests can build their own boat and race against their friends and build their own LEGO scene in Chima. Six LEGO models will be featured in this area, including four miniature scale models of areas within Chima Water Park and an Eagle Head that stands 11-feet-high.

Lion Temple Wave Pool and Eglor’s Build-a-Boat are two of eight areas featured in the new LEGO Legends of Chima Water Park. Other areas include: Cragger’s Swamp – This hands-on water play area invites guests to ride water slides, blast water cannons and jets and slide through the head of a massive crocodile. More than 50 interactive water play features will delight young guests in water that is only one foot deep. Wolves’ Den – This is the place to grab a bite when guests get hungry! Enjoy tasty food surrounded by collectibles gathered by the clever wolf tribe. Explorers Forest- In this lush and tropical forest, guests will be greeted by Gorzan the Gorilla in his 15-foot tall mech suit. Rhino Beach – This sand filled oasis offers guests a place to get some shade, lounge and rest. Speedorz Arena- This interactive play area lets guests race their Speedorz through unique obstacles. Forever Rock- Featured just outside Cragger’s Swamp, the iconic rock contains a smaller rock acting as chalk board for kids to tally their achievements just as Cragger and Laval did. For those that want to kick back and stay awhile, 15 new cabanas surround the area for rent.

LEGO Legends of Chima Water Park is included in the cost of admission to LEGOLAND Water Park. For ticket prices, operating schedule and additional information, visit http://www.LEGOLAND.com or call 760-918-LEGO (5346).

SEA LIFE Aquarium is home to more than 5,000 living creatures and incorporates LEGO® models into a child’s voyage to the depths of the ocean featuring play zones, fun facts and quiz trails. LEGOLAND Water Park features more than 7 slides, sandy beaches and the unique Build-A-Raft River.
