VTech V Reader Review and Giveaway

Vtech is dedicated to providing children with educational tools to help them learn, but have fun at the same time. I used this product with a young child that I know.




I had the opportunity to review the new VTech V Reader that has just been released. It is available nationwide in August, but right now it is only available at Target.

The V.Reader is the world’s first animated e-reader system designed specifically for kids aged 3 – 7 years old. The cutting-edge product features:

Animated Storyteller

Stories come to life through animated books on a 4.3″ color touch screen. Children will enjoy narration, character voices, vivid graphics, sounds and music.

Touch and Read System

Two options of play: Kids can follow along with the story or touch the screen to hear words and play interactive reading games.

Teaches Core Reading Skills

V.Reader helps teach reading comprehension, vocabulary, phonics, word building and more!

Story Dictionary

Enhance vocabulary skills with kid-friendly word definitions.

Downloadable Content

V.reader features a USB port and is expandable with SD memory cards (not included). Download themes, avatars, as well as enjoy additional stories.

Track Your Child’s Progress

Connect V.Reader to your computer to monitor your child’s learning, and receive certificates of achievement for each story completed.

Sturdy Design

Kid-tough and perfect for kid-sized hands; cover protects the touch screen.

What’s Included


V.reader Animated E-Book System (including V.Reader Pen)

What’s That Noise? storybook cartridge

One Soft Cloth

User manual

USB cable

I think this is a fantastic system for children. Kids are drawn to the colorful display screen, displaying bright and vivid images on the screen. I think the fun of the games masks the fun that they are having by learning valuable and important information from the game. The game increases kids vocabulary and helps them to further their reading skills. I feel this is a great learning tool and the girl I used it with seemed to really love it!

Zubbles Review and Giveaway

I love bubbles...but let's face it, they are for kids. It's hard to resist them though, they are so fun and whimsical. People of all ages enjoy them.

Zubbles.com is a company that is focused on fueling people's bubble enjoyment, but in COLOR. Who would have thought to change the color of a bubble to a beautiful pink and blue? Now that it's available though, I wouldn't want it any other way!

What exactly is a Zubble?
Bubbles have long been a source of delight and fascination for children the world over.

Now, after ten years of experiments and discoveries, we have done what scientists claimed was impossible... we've combined the simple joy of bubbles with the beauty and magic of color, inventing the world's first real colored bubbles.


We call them Zubbles®.


For the first time, children will be able to choose their favorite Zubbles from a range of rich, vibrant colors, and experience the magic of watching colored bubbles float through the air. And, using a new class of patent pending specialty dyes developed by C2C Technologies, the color in Zubbles magically disappears when exposed to air, water or pressure.
Zubbles are disappearing, non-staining, and non-toxic.

I thought the Zubbles were very cool. I received a blue bottle of Zubbles to review. The bubbles weren't as blue as I thought they would be, but they were definately a noticable shade of blue. Once blown out of the wand, the bubbles didn't last as long as normal bubbles (at least in my opinion.) I liked that Zubbles had an easy to hold handle on the wand. Some wands cause a soapy mess on the end of the wand where you hold it, and I was happy to not have to deal with that. These are definately cool bubbles!

Giveaway Rules:
I will be picking ONE (1) winners to win a two bottles of Zubbles in pink and blue.
1. YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED! Please tell me why you like these bubbles. (1 entry)

YUM!

Has anyone tried the new Skinnycow ice cream cups? The whole cup is 150 calories and only 2g of fat! They're delicious!! You get a lot of ice cream for 150 calories, and it's guilt free! You could have the same amount of ice cream of a normal, full of fat ice cream, for twice the calories. I had the cookies and cream flavor today, it was so good! It doesn't taste like they're depriving you of taste, it tastes like normal ice cream.

LuLu's discount code

Please go to LuLu's between now and July 25th and use the code SAMMI for 15% your entire purchase. The code may only be used once per customer. LuLu's is a great clothing and accessories website.
Please let me know if you use this code.

Anyone?

Would anyone like to team up with me to work with Bake me a Wish? I know sometimes they select two bloggers together to do a cake review (when you fill out the form). Let me know if you're interested!

Arm&Hammer Kid's My Way Spinbrush Review

I don't have children, and don't usually review children's products because I am not interested in them. I was contacted to review Arm & Hammer's newest product, which is the Kid's Spinbrush called "My Way." I accepted the offer because I thought it was a cute product, and knew I would enjoy decorating the toothbrush.

This toothbrush comes with different sheets of stickers to let children decorate their toothbrush however they want. The toothbrush is plain white with a jeweled purple on/off switch. I love that it is white because it is the perfect canvas for creation! Some of the stickers are letters to spell out their name, animals, sayings such as "girls rule, cool, lol, awesome, etc, and pictures of various girly things like hearts, stars, circles, rainbows, lipstick, etc.


This product is meant for girls and it is the only toothbrush which you can decorate. The other toothbrushes are in the shapes of dolphins, wolverine, spiderman, a dolphin, ice cream cone, etc. I really enjoyed this, LOL. I had fun with it. I spelled out my name on the toothbrush, put a picture of a dog, a star, a tube of lipstick, a swirl, a flower, a sun, and a lady bug on it. I think it looks really cute!



The letter stickers were a little bit hard to place them where I wanted them to go because they were small and my fingers are not as small as a child's. It took me a minute to place them correctly. I did like that the stickers were easy to move around if desired. Some stickers start to rip or break if they are tried to move.

I really think a little girl would love this product. I know I would have loved this had it been around when I was younger. I also really liked that it came with the batteries included, because not all products do this. I think this product is also very smart because young children are going to want the incentive to brush their teeth with their cool, decorated toothbrush! It's a win win for both parents and children.

Some information about the Spinbrush:
*Research shows that kids brush 38% longer with Spinbrush® than when using an ordinary manual brush.*

Available in several fun and exciting designs (including My Way!TM, Spider-Man, Hulk, Wolverine, Astronaut, Soccer Ball, Dolphin, Ice Cream Cone, Pikachu, Skateboard and Butterfly)
Great handle designs make brushing fun!
Promotes healthy brushing; removes plaque; massages gums
Smaller brush head for smaller mouths
Less than $7 U.S. suggested retail price** – only a few dollars more than an ordinary manual toothbrush!
Ergonomically designed for a comfortable grip
Includes 2 AAA batteries
Children under 3 use under adult supervision

New CSN review coming very soon!

I was recently contacted by a representative from CSN Stores promotional team and they asked me to do a product review. After browsing their site, I found out that they carry tons of products on their over 200 sites. They have really great bathroom sink
I would love a new bathroom sink! I have decided to review a Westbend griddle. Please keep on the lookout for that review!

Shankara.com Review and Giveaway

I love skincare products and always enjoy trying the latest products. Shankara is skincare heaven for me!

What is Shankara?
Shankara is truly more than a wonderful skin care line. Behind everything we do is a strong intent to serve humanity, from producing the finest, most energetic products possible to the donation of 100% of the net profits to global humanitarian work.

Nurturing the Beauty in You...Consciously Shankara delivers a ground-breaking, natural collection of retail and professional products for face and body.

The Shankara Skincare System produces true skin transformation and enhances your authentic beauty.

Our approach is original and holistic. Shankara is the alchemical pairing of western anti-aging breakthroughs with the eastern science of Ayurveda, the ancient Science of Life." Shankara products are created using cold processed, synergistic blends of anti-aging, antioxidant-rich active ingredients, combined with highly nutritive, therapeutic, and aromatherapeutic essential oils. We"ve covered all the bases.

I was sent full sized samples of:
Hydrating Cleansing Gele
Microcrystal Exfoliation Treatment
Regenesis-Energen ATP Cell Serum
Ayurveda-Energen Facial Oil II



Microcrystal Exfoliation Treatment
6% Ultra-fine magnesium oxide crystals are blended in a nourishing base of 56% pure algae-aloe gel to give professional quality results from a dermal exfoliation self-treatment. Produces an immediate, noticeable appearance and feeling of more youthful skin results after only one treatment. With daily exfoliation of the skin's surface with Shankara's Microcrystal Exfoliation Treatment, aging effects continue to decrease as fine lines fade and wrinkles and sagging are reduced. Skin tone evens out and discolorations fade. The skin takes on a renewed look of refined radiance. Diatomaceous earth and Ayurvedic herbs help purify new skin as old cells are removed. The ultra-fine crystals do not damage tissues or remove the skin's natural acid mantle. The anti-inflammatory algae-aloe gel base soothes new skin as it leaves a hydrating film of protection after rinsing. PH 5.5-5.6, balanced for skin.



Ayurveda-Energen Facial Oil II
100% pure, accelerated, rich nutrient oil deeply penetrates skin to regenerate, oxygenate, balance, restore and deliver age-preventing antioxidant protection to maintain youthful healthy radiant skin. 100% pure, accelerated, rich nutrient oil deeply penetrates skin to regenerate, oxygenate, balance, restore and maintain youthful healthy radiant skin. Concentrates of essential fatty acids and therapeutic essential oils deliver and retain moisture in dry skin without clogging pores. Ayurvedic herbs and antioxidant nutrients support repair of damaged tissue, rejuvenate skin and help prevent aging. Aromatherapeutic essential oils bring a calming balance for the vata dosha while treating dry vata skin. The oil plumps, smoothes and softens fine lines and wrinkles and gives skin a youthful radiant glow. Non-comedogenic. Moderate natural UV protection; PH neutral for all skin.


Regenesis-Energen ATP Cell Serum

100% active serum is structured and energized in a proprietary process to provide ultimate deep tissue repair and regeneration with skin-firming effects. Shankara's exclusive Regenesis-EnergenTM BioComplex accelerates the age-reversal process. Preliminary clinical tests showed significant line and wrinkle reduction, as well as major increase in cellular oxygen and hydration. The addition of stabilized skin-soluble Vitamin C Esteri increases the effectiveness, beyond the claims listed. PH 5.5-5.6, balanced for skin.



Hydrating Cleansing Gele
Mild and non-irritating cleanser with naturally derived foaming cleansing ingredients in a unique amino acid complex that nourishes and leaves skin feeling moist and silky soft. Hydrating Cleansing Gele' contains Shankara's exclusive regenerating, antioxidant Ayurveda Energen Complex with Ayurvedic herbs, activated extracts and monoatomic elements. Mild and non-irritating, the naturally derived foaming cleansing ingredients are combined with moisturizing olive oil, macadamia nut oil, lecithin, algae extract, and a unique hydrating amino acid complex that nourishes and leaves skin feeling moist and silky-soft after cleansing. PH 5.5-5.6, balanced for skin, protects the natural acid mantle, thereby eliminating the need for a toner.






I really think these products are amazing. I used the gele last night followed by the exfoliation treatment. The first thing that I noticed about the gele was that it had a strong smell. The product quickly foamed into a lather and made my skin feel very smooth and clean. I think the exfoliation treatment is my favorite. It is packed small into a little jar, but is amazing! It comes with a little applicator that you use to put on your skin. It exfoliates very well, and even though it's rough that's how you know it's a good exfoliator. It made my skin feel great.
The other two products made my skin look good too. I noticed that all of the products are all similiar colors, I'm not sure why that it, but it was interesting. I think Shankara products are truly dedicated to helping you to achieve having the best skin possible! I will be using these products solely from now on!

ZehnNaturals.com Review and Giveaway

I like things that support the environment or better it. I try to do my fair share of helping the earth. ZehnNaturals.com is a website which offers "organic apparel for a greener planet." 100% Certified Organic Cotton Apparel and T-Shirts for Women, Men, and children are also for sale.
Many cute slogans and designs are available on the shirts. There is a shirt for everyone's taste and style.

I chose the "Give a Hoot" t-shirt. This is the model wearing the shirt.

I instantly liked the shirt and thought it was cute. The shirt is made of soft 100% certified organic cotton that is made with 80% windpower. The shirt is true to size (which is important to me) and fits excellently. The shirt has some special attributes. The seed paper tag is made with wildflower seeds that attract and nurture endangered honey bees. Also, for the sale of each tee Zehn Naturals plants a tree (plus their 10% giving pledge!) This is very unique and the shirts definately go towards a great cause, which is important to me. The shirt also came EXTREMELY fast (it came in one day from ordering it, which is amazing to me!) This company cares a lot about its customers.

Delicatesoles.com Review and Giveaway

Do you complain often of tired, sore, hurting feet? Do you wear heels a lot, or are you standing on your feet for long periods of time at work? Look no further, DelicateSoles is your answer!

I really like flats because they go with everything, are comfortable, and are cute.

DelicateSoles.com offer unique, rollable, flats that roll up to conveniently fit in a storage bag that they come with. They roll up very small and tightly to fit well wherever they are stored. I was sent the lipstick red flats. When I received them, I was very surprised. The shoes that I got were so tiny that I almost missed them. This is good though because you want them to fold up tiny in your bag. These are perfect for putting in your bag when your feet start to hurt from your heels. I know that when I wear heels and my feet start to hurt, I wish I had another pair of shoes to change into. This is a great product! I think this product is very unique and have never seen anything like it before. DelicateSoles certainly puts peoples needs first! Please buy Delicate Soles at www.delicatesoles.com, you will not be disappointed!
(An example of the shoes I got, but mine are red.)
The shoes come in onyx, pixie dust (a pinkish color), lipstick red, and starlight silver. The shoes have catchy names which I like. It helps the shoes to stand out. There is a color for everyone's taste.

Giveaway Rules:
I will be picking ONE (1) winner to win a pair of flats of their color choice from Delicatesoles.com

GirlExtraOrdinare.com Review

I love clothes, but I especially love it when I get the chance to review unique pieces for my blog!
GirleExtraOrdinare or GirlEO.com offers designer apparel and accessories, and specially made bridal and bachelorette shirts.
Obviously I am not getting married, so GirlEO sent me 3 tanktops which were not wedding related. The tanktops are all pink. One has a cupcake on it, the other has crystals which spell out love, and the last one just has a crystal design on it. The tanktops fit well and I am generally happy with them. I feel that the tanktops are made well and the crystals will not fall off after a few washings. The apparel at GirlEO is very cute and is designed for everyone's style and needs!

Rayovac Review and Giveaway

For me, batteries aren't as important as they used to be. Years ago, you would need them to power a cd player, a walkman, and whatever other electronics needed batteries. In today's society, I find myself only needing batteries for my TV remotes.

Rayovac has been a widely popular battery brand for many years now. They feature rechargable batteries, flashlights, hearing aid batteries, among other things. I trust Rayovac to provide me with quality batteries to power my electronics.

I was sent two boxes that contained ten 5 pack of batteries each, so totaling 100 batteries each. WOW, this is practically a lifetime supply of batteries! The box has a very interesting message on it. It says "Rayovac. Lasts as long as energizer." I believe this to be true, because I've been using Rayovac batteries for my electronic items for years now. I do think that Rayovac is a company that prides itself on producing quality batteries for its consumers. The box also says it provides you with more power for your money. This is a statement that Rayovac says very confidently. These batteries are made to be the best they can be. I know I will continue to use Rayovac batteries for many more years to come!

Giveaway Rules:
I will be picking ONE (1) winner to win a box of AA batteries(the box has ten 5 packs of AA batteries).
1. YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED! Please tell me why you would like to win these batteries . (1 entry)

Kakadu Pet Review

KakaduPet.com offers great items for dogs. If you need a dog bed, leash, collar, or dog bowl, this is your company! They offer activity mats for dogs to play on, beds that provide the ultimate comfort for your pet, and even clothes too! Your pet will be thrilled if you buy them an item from KakaduPet!

I was excited to be able to review a pet bed for my dog, Colby. I chose the medium Pet Oasis Bed in the wheat color.

(This is not the wheat color, but I could not find a picture of the wheat color. This is the same bed though.)

Information about Oasis Pet Bed:
A blend of softness and durability in one dog bed: pamper your pet with the Oasis Pet Bed. It has a cover made of 40% cotton and 60% polyester fabric, and is filled with 100% polyester. This bed for dogs is unique for its anti-slip and anti-friction features. Anti-slip nodules on the underside keep the bed securely in place while the anti-friction feature protects skin from irritation even if your dog uses the bed frequently. This designer dog bed comes in vibrant colors with a paw print design that brightens up any home.

Oasis Pet Bed includes an soft inside cushion which could be used separately in the summer. This washable luxury dog bed comes in four colors: Hot, Cornflower, Wheat, and Midnight. And there are three sizes to choose from: Small, Medium, and Large.

Unique Features of Oasis Pet Bed:

The bed remains securely in place with its anti-slip design
Protects skin from irritation with its anti-friction feature
Durable and comfortable

Colby loves this bed! It's extremely comfortable for her, and it has an adorable paw print design inside. The bed is the perfect size for her, not too big and not too small. She loves to lay in it. I like that the cushion unzips so you can wash it separately. The bed is high quality and does not seem like it will easily fall apart after a few washings. I also like that these beds come in different colors so you can choose the color you like the best, or the gender color for your pet. I know she will enjoy this bed for years to come!
