Nuby Teething Buddies Review

For such a small toy this has a lot of sensory parts to it. The middle/tummy part is made of 100% Cellophane paper. This makes the noise, when crinkled, sound like foil being played with. The front of the ears are a blouse feeling material and the back of the ears are a soft normal stuffed animal material. Very soft to the touch. The head and arms are made up of the same soft material. The feet are teething rings. Their feet are textured TPE material, which is great for teething.

Nuby has quite a few different characters to choose from! There is a rabbit, alligator, Monkey, bear, elephant, cow and lion. With all those to choose from, why choose just one? Your child can have 1 for every mood.

Teething Buddies are for ages 0 and up. All colors are great for boys and girls alike.

So easy to clean! Just wipe clean with a damp cloth and a mild, child friendly soap. All the Nuby products that I have tried have all dried super quick. These are not intended to be put in the dryer. Just air dry. You will be surprised at how quickly it is ready to be played with again! The colors last through washing also. I hate when toys get all faded and old looking. Nuby toys seem to be able to withstand the washes.

The face is sewn on so as not to have any chocking hazards. So cute and cuddly, yet helps with those mean gums during teething!





We love the Nuby brand at our house. I believe you will too!

Protein Bakery Review and Giveaway

Each one of their cookies is made wheat flour-free, trans fat-free, and has no gluten*. A key ingredient is rolled oats, which have lots of dietary fiber. Want more? Each bite is packed with lean, mean, muscle-building protein. Whey protein is rich in essential acids and helps maintain lean body mass for optimal health.

If you are looking for a great tasting, yet good for you, treat then this is the place for you.

The Protein Bakery
The Sweet Spot
20 West 20th Street
Sweet #309 (Third Floor)
New York, NY 10011

There are quite a few different flavors to choose from:


I think my favorite flavor cookie was Chocolate Chocolate Chip. Yum yum

This wonderful company doesn't just make cookies though! They also make brownies.

The brownies are better than the cookies! We only got to test 1 set of brownies but they were delicious. When the box got here it had been in the Fed-ex truck and came nice and warm. Great to snack on immediately. Each brownie delivers up to 12 grams of protein.

My daughter loved the Blondie.

You can't tell that these are good for you. They taste like normal, everyday, bad for you treats!

Each cookie came in a nice 2 pack wrapper. The Blondies come in a 1 wrapped treat. The brownies came in a 2 pack like the cookies. Each treat costs between $2.50-$3.50 for each set of treats. They have nice gift baskets to choose from also. Not a bad price for those either. If you are building your muscles these would be good for you also. Great source of protein.

The Protein Bakery is also running a great "Show us your muscle!" promotion. That anyone who orders their products can submit a picture to info@proteinbakery.com holding the product making a muscle, for a chance to win a free baker's pick gift set and T-shrit. They will select a winner who will receive a free Bakers Pick gift set from us (our largest gift set!) plus a T-Shirt and they will highlight your photo on their site, as well as the blog you found them through.

La Familia Book Review

This book is the first in a series of bilingual books for children to either learn Spanish or English.
The book is accompanied by a website were the book is available in an animated format as well as many games to practice the vocabulary.


This is a great book for those leaning Spanish or for those who speak Spanish but are learning to read.

The colors were bright and the pictures where fun to look at. The Spanish words were explained for easy reading. My daughter decided at the end of last school year that she wanted to learn Spanish. This book was a great way for her to do that! So glad I got to review this book.

You get to know the Spanish names for each family member. Grandma/ Abuela and so on. Also fun that it is on my Kindle so that all the kids can read it while we are on the road traveling or they are just looking for something fun to do.

Check it out on Amazon:

We have reviewed a couple of Suzy Liebermanns books for kids and never been disappointed in a 1 of them! All are colorful and have great morals to them.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Cane Expressions Review

My mother carries a plain black cane with her everywhere. But Cane Expressions has changed her having to carry the plain canes! Check out their cool designs.

Each Cane cover costs between $9-$23 each. You can buy them at many different places also. Check out all the places including Walmart!




Such a great idea. Now she can be the envy of all other cane carriers!
