Let The Good Times Fly With Fuzzy Flyers #Review #HolidayGiftGuide

logo_home.jpg

Fuzzy Flyers are a great way to keep little ones entertained without being hooked to electronics, which can be a hard task these days.  Fuzzy Flyers will provide entertainment with hilarious phrases, challenging games, and social interaction.

FuzzyFlyers.jpg

Fuzzy Flyers aren’t just cute, they’re quite intelligent.  They have smart reactions to your actions thanks to the intelligent sensors inside these cute little plush pals.  They’ll recognize your movements and respond with silly sayings.  There are 2 different Fuzzy Flyers available, Chirpie and Coco.  My daughter fell in love with Coco right away because of her grandparents dog.  Grandma and Grandpa have a dog named Coco who is a fat little rollie pollie and resembles Coco the Fuzzy Flyer very much.

Coco has 2 different games that you can play depending on what silly mood your little one is in at the moment.  Dance Party is a fun game where you shake, toss, and tap the dog along with the instructions and then pass it off to a friend.  The tempo changes and it’s a fun challenge to keep up.  Bark Attack is the other game you can play with Coco.  My kids have been using the Bark Attack mode to play hot potato and keep him moving.  Once the movement stops Coco will bark continuously until picked up again.  There are a few silly sayings that Coco will say while just playing and having everyday fun.  My daughter loves it when Coco says, “bacon bacon”.  If you shake Coco and keep shaking you’ll hear “ohhh, I’m a dizzy dog!  Ohhh, I’m gonna throw up!” and my kids find it absolutely hilarious.

This holiday season encourage the little one on your shopping list to have fun and get moving with Fuzzy Flyers.

Give The Gift Of Entertaining Education With NCircle Entertainment #Review #HolidayGiftGuide

logo.png

NCircle Entertainment has been a household favorite for years.  NCircle is well known for providing quality children’s entertainment that helps build early learning skills.  NCircle’s award winning brands will engage your child in the learning process while keeping them entertained with song, dance, and laughter.  There’s nothing better for little minds than education that entertains and that’s something that as a mother I truly appreciate.

NCircle.jpg

I received a selection of holiday titles that I knew my daughter would fall in love with instantly.

Octonauts.jpg

Octonauts is one of my daughter’s favorite shows and she has been wanting an Octonauts DVD for a while.  The Octonauts crew is always off on a fun new adventure and your little one gets to tag along!  Captain Barnacles, Kwazii, Peso, and the Vegimals make for quite the entertaining crew!  When my daughter saw the Octonauts: Very Vegimal Christmas that was the first movie she wanted to watch.  This Christmas DVD allows your little one to join the Octonauts as they celebrate the holidays.  The Vegimals plan for a Chrismtmas feast aboard the Octopod but are interrupted and things don’t go exactly according to plan.  The adventure continues when the Octonauts discover that a rockslide has endangered some sea creature friends and need to rescue them in time to save Christmas.  Octonauts: The Great Penguin Race is another action packed DVD that any little explorer will love.  Join Peso on an exciting tournament, the Iron Clam Competition.  Peso will have to compete against an awesomely athletic penguin to claim victory.  Who do you think will win?

CatInTheHat.jpg

The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That is another show that my daughter absolutely adores.  In The Cat In The Hat Know A Lot About Christmas, there’s a poor little baby reindeer in need of help.  Sally, Nick, and Cat must help the little reindeer, Ralph, get home to his family in far away Freeze-Your-Knees.  Join this trio on a fun adventure and see if Ralph gets home in time.  As if one fun-filled Cat In The Hat DVD wasn’t enough, I also received The Cat In The Hat: Told From The Cold and my little one really enjoyed this movie as well.  In this DVD you’ll learn how water can turn into snow, that penguins don’t fly, and how black bears get ready for a long winter’s nap when the weather turns cold.  Don’t miss out on this super fun adventure!

Caillou.jpg

If you know me, you probably know that I’m not the biggest Caillou fan but my daughter absolutely loves Caillou.  I am the second oldest of 10 children with a 10 year gap between me and the third child so you can imagine how my teenage years were.  I was always watching my siblings and my younger brother, Joe, was OBSESSED with Caillou so I was subjected to it ALL. THE. TIME.  Caillou’s Holiday Movie is one I hadn’t seen yet (surprisingly) and I do have to admit it is a really cute movie.  In Caillou’s Holiday Movie you get to see how this curious little guy handles all kinds of big boy tasks.  Caillou will help Daddy shovel snow, make holiday presents for his family, and even discover how boys and girls all around the world celebrate the season.  The ‘bent and tiny Christmas tree’ in the movie is adorable and now my daughter wants the same kind of tree next year.

Give the gift of entertaining education to the special little one on your holiday shopping list with NCircle Entertainment.

Protect Important Information With The Fellowes Powershred M-12C #Review #Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

FellowesLogo1.jpg

I’m sure Fellowes is a name that all of us recognize.  For almost 100 years now Fellowes has been bringing superior products to the market that are incredibly useful and life-changing to say the least.

FellowesShredder.jpg

I have been a victim of identity theft and I can’t stress to you how important it is to shred documents rather than toss them.  I don’t know exactly how my identity was stolen, but it was used for a very long time and I have gotten into the habit of destroying anything that can give any sort of clue to my identity.  I was SO excited when I got the change to try out this Fellowes Powershred M-12C.  There are a few convenient features on the M-12C model that I absolutely couldn’t wait to try out!

fellowesshredder2

Isn’t this shredder quite good looking?  I love the black, it fits in well to the existing furniture in my office area.  Fellowes really thought of everything when they were creating this unit!  The feature that I was probably most excited to test out is the SafeSense technology.  This feature will stop shredding when hands touch the paper opening.  I have a curious little 5 year old and this feature works incredibly well and gives me peace of mind.  As soon as my hand slightly touched the paper opening the shredding stopped and wouldn’t resume until my hand was gone.  I love that I can leave the shredder plugged in without worrying about my daughter hurting herself.  You’ll spend less time shredding with the Fellowes M-12C unit’s ability to hand up to 12 sheets of paper per pass.  You don’t have to worry about removing staples or paperclips either!  The M-12C can handle those too and just keep on going.  The slim design help it fit into any space and the 4 gallon capacity ensures that you won’t have to empty over and over again.

There is truly nothing left to be desired with this Fellowes M-12C Shredder, but don’t just take my word for it!  Fellowes has also been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway!

***GIVEAWAY***
Fellowes has been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway!  One lucky winner will receive a Fellowes M-12C Shredder of their own!  Giveaway will begin 12/15/16 at 5 PM EST and will end 12/22/16 5 PM EST.  Winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen.  All giveaway entries will be validated.  Winners are randomly selected.  Click the link below to enter:
