As a mama, I am all about learning through play. That is why I love LeapFrog toys, including their new LeapBuilders Fruit Fun Elephant. Not only is it a toy, but it’s educational as well which I love.  (Be sure to scroll down to the end of my post to see how you can be entered for a chance to win one for your little ones! )

The LeapFrog LeapBuilders Fruit Fun Elephant is a 21 piece animal themed set of blocks, geared towards children ages 2+.  It promotes imagination as kids build with the blocks and stack them. The LeapBuilders Elephant features a smart cube in which kids can insert the blocks to hear educational songs as well as teach numbers, colors and fruits.  In addition to encouraging vocabulary and phrases, it also promotes fine motor skills through building the blocks and pushing buttons.  It’s compatible with other LeapBuilders sets so there’s also the option to purchase other learning blocks from other sets as your kids master the phrases to learn more content.

Maxwell loves to learn through his hands and with catchy music. He spent hours building with the blocks and dancing to the various songs. He saw it as play rather than learning. I love that this is a screen-free option to help expand his knowledge base. Plus any toy that promotes learning and keeps him entertained is a win in my book!  It’s also really compact so easy to pick up and bring with you anywhere.

LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. is the leader in innovative learning toys for children that encourage a child’s curiosity and love of learning throughout their early developmental journey.  For more than 20 years, LeapFrog has been helping children grow their knowledge and imagination through their award winning products.

Can’t wait to start building? LeapFrog is giving away five sets of LeapBuilders toys. Visit http://bit.ly/LeapBuildersSweepstakes to enter.

Fun for the kids – Babbleboxx review

babbleboxx review
This post is sponsored by Babbleboxx.com, all opinions expressed are my own.

If there is one thing I love it’s getting packages in the mail and trying new products. Babbleboxx just sent me their Spring Kids Story box and there are so many cute things in there for the kiddos. Below I am sharing my review of The Kidstory Babbleboxx.

 

1.) Grow and Fit Bodysuits from Fruit of The Loom

Is there anything better than super soft baby clothes? I don’t think so. This a new line of bodysuits from Fruit of the Loom and they are specifically designed to grow and move with your baby. They are made with an ultra-soft, light pique breathable fabric and will help keep our little babe cool when he comes this summer.

And this 8 piece set is the perfect gift for any new or expecting mamas

 

2.) Subscription Crate from KiwiCo.

Ok so this is one item I was the most excited about. I have been hearing about Kiwi Crates for a long time and have wanted to try them out. KiwiCo is a monthly subscription crate with various age appropriate activities to help enhance STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) learning. Each crate comes with an activity booklet as well as everything you need to complete the activities or craft.

We received the Tadpole Crate which is for those ages 12-36months. This crate focused on colors and Maxwell had a blast mixing them all together and watching the colors form.

You can get your first month’s KiwiCo subscription free, just pay $4.95 for shipping and handling. (One free trial per household). And you can cancel anytime if you choose.

 

3.) Shampoo & Conditioner from Snip-Its

We spend the majority of the summer months in the pool and this shampoo and conditioner duo is perfect for kid-friendly hair. It deep cleans to help clarify hair and get rid of any chlorine. Plus it smells really good and is gentle on your little one’s scalp and eyes.

From May-June you can get The Swimmer’s Duo for $20. And if you stop in to your local Snip-Its salon in May or June, get $3 off a kid’s regular haircut using code “SPRING”. Expires 6/30/2019.

 

4.) Conversation starters/lunch notes

We make it a point to sit down for family dinner at least 4 nights a week (the other 3 nights I don’t get home until later). Some night’s it’s a nice homemade meal and other’s it’s breakfast for dinner (my fave easy go-to). Regardless, I think it’s important for us to all connect and talk about our days. These cute little lunch notes are perfect conversation starters with riddles and facts for around the dinner table.

Emegency Toddler Car Kit Essentials

Picture this – you run out to the store for milk, you don’t bring your diaper bag because you’re just running in and out. You pull into the parking lot at the store and realize your little one had a massive blowout. First of all, we’ve all been there.  I can’t tell you how many times this happened to me. If it wasn’t a diaper I needed, then it was something else – a blanket for the park, or a book or a toy to keep my little guy occupied while out in public.  That’s why I created an Emergency Toddler Car Kit, so that I am stocked and ready at all times.

 

Here are my Emergency Toddler Car Kit Essentials:

 

1.) Diapers – because you never know when there will be a blowout and it’s best to be prepared.

 

2.) Wipes – I use them for everything, from messy hands and faces to wiping off my counters. I love Huggies Natural Care Wipes. They’re 99% water based and are alcohol, paraben and fragrance free. Click here to buy some or head to your local Walmart.

3.) Diaper disposal bags – I keep these in my car and purse. And they are lavender scented!

 

4.) Hand sanitizer – It’s always a good idea to have on hand when traveling for after diaper changes, before eating or when out in public places.

 

5.) Spare change of clothes – I keep a pair of sweats/leggings, a t shirt, zip up hoodie, pair of socks and hat.

 

6.) Blanket – For the cooler months to keep warm and in the warmer months for picnics and trips to the beach and park. Love this one on Amazon

7.) Activity book – I have this one for my son and I love that it’s dry-erase. Just wipe clean and you can re-use. It’s a lifesaver when you have to wait somewhere and keep them occupied.

8.) Snacks – because it’s no fun dealing with a hangry toddler.

 

9.) Drinks – love these cups as they are spill proof too!

 

10.) Sunscreen – When the weather gets nicer, we often stop at the park or playground. I love having some extra sunscreen in the car to reapply as needed.

 

11.) First aid kit – Because bumps and scrapes happen. This one is lightweight and compact.

Now you’ll be prepared for any road trips or just when out running errands with your little ones.
