Kid's DVD Gift Ideas

Nickelodeon's hit CG-animated preschool series Top Wing soars onto DVD for the first time on October 2, 2018. The action-packed, seven-episode collection follows four best friend rescue birds-Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody-as they work together to help their island community, go on amazing adventures, and earn their wings as full-feathered rescue birds at Top Wing Academy. Equipped with unique turbo-charged vehicles and high-tech gadgets, the cadets complete various missions to hone their rescue skills and help those in need while learning valuable lessons along the way.

Nickelodeon is taking preschoolers on winter adventures in the heartwarming new DVD, Nick Jr: Snow Awesome. Available October 16, this release contains winter-themed episodes of Nickelodeon's popular preschool series Nella The Princess Knight, Sunny Day and Shimmer and Shine. Fans can join Nella on her quest to save Christmas from some naughty snow dragons, watch Sunny work to reunite with Doodle during a snow storm, experience a winter wonderland in Shimmer and Shine's palace and much more.

It’ll take a miracle to save the Killian family’s ranch…but miracles come in all shapes and sizes. Just as a greedy developer (Tom Arnold) plans to take over their ranch, tween girl Sydney Killian and a neighbor boy find a mysterious pony with an injured wing. As they secretly heal the creature, they find the pony’s magical powers could change their fortunes forever. This charming family adventure also stars Charisma Carpenter (The Expendables franchise) and Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s).

Halloween Themed Gramma In A Box

Gramma in a Box was developed when the creators three grandchildren moved to Seattle. She was always boxing up cookies and treats that they could make together when they Skyped. Once she shared the idea with other friends and family, the concept for Gramma in a Box was born!
As a mother of five myself I can relate to families being far away and trying to find unique ways to bond together. To me Gramma In A Box is the perfect way to get your kids excited for the holidays. My kids love Halloween so they really enjoyed this months box. I love how you know what you are getting with Gramma In A Box each box includes two treat projects you make with your kids and baked cookies with frosting and sprinkles. Each box makes at least 20 finished treats. I love that this is enough for all three of my older kids to enjoy. It's hard for me to find cheap projects I can do with all three kids that we haven't already done.

Playtime Edventures Brings Fun & Games On The Go Plus A Giveaway

It is always a huge struggle for us to entertain the kids on the road or away from home. With four children of such various ages it seems like I am constantly working to find activities they all love and can participate in together. My kids range in age from four months to ten years old so they often can't agree on anything to play together. It' hard to put a three and ten year old together and hope they play well. I loved Playtime Edventures products because they bring the kids together in play be it on the road with the slumber bag or overnight with their sheet set at home or away. Playtime Edventures products are all about simplicity. They have either pink or blue full or twin size sheets with pillowcase and slumber (sleeping) bags with classic games, phrases and more. Three main products that can essentially teach kids of all ages to bond through play; the playtime pillow, sheets and slumber bag. Right now use code jojo and save 15 percent!

Get Kids Excited For Halloween With Mindware Treats

With Halloween so close I wanted to do some extra special fun crafts and projects with the kids to get them excited for Halloween. It seems like as the boys get older they get less and less interested in the holidays. My boys are only ten and eight and I want them to enjoy Halloween still as much as my three year old does. My go to is always Mindware! Mindware just has the best and most unique toys and kids products on the market in my opinion. Mindware has never let me down and with four kids that is a big deal. I ordered a few different items to get the kids in the Halloween spirit. You can check out all of Mindware's Halloween products here. I ordered the kids the Scratch and Sniff Animal Favorites Scented Sticker Set,  Scratch and Sniff Treats Scented Sticker Set, Dig It Up Dinosaur Skeletons, Magic Wands Quick Sticker KitStemulators: Glitter Slime Lab and Paint Your Own Porcelain Fairy Light.


Honeyberry Farms Plants, Jelly and Toppings Made From Amazing Superberries

Who ever said big things don't come in small packages apparently had not had the opportunity to try Honeyberry USA products. They pack huge berry flavor and make a deliciously sweet jam/jelly or topping when preserved properly. Me and my family live in Kentucky. I spent my childhood climbing hills and picking berries. I passed down this tradition to my children. The berries would be canned into jelly/jam by my mother and grandmother. I loved helping them can that jelly because I knew one day I would want to can jam/jelly myself so I wanted to learn all I could. My favorite was always black raspberries as they are slightly sweeter in my opinion than the other berries here.

Honeyberry USA'S Honeyberry Jelly is the closest thing to our canned black raspberry jelly that I have had in years. It was absolutely amazing even better than black raspberry jelly as the Honeyberries are sweeter making a sweeter jelly. The Honeyberry topping was just as good it was almost exactly like the jelly only only thinner with clumps of berries as topping should be. Both the jelly and topping is made by a certified jelly maker and has just newly launched. They are a must try! We loved it on ice cream and even the kids thought it was good on their pancakes. The topping has so many uses and the jelly makes the perfect dip just add sour cream. Dip your favorite cracker, I love to dip Triscuits. It is a different snack and relatively healthy. It is a wonderful and healthy alternative to processed store brand jams, jellies and toppings that contain all those dyes and who knows. Honeyberry jelly or topping would make an amazing gift for the foodie in the family this holiday season. It is a scrumptious gift.
