SHAKE Flip-top pill box that dispenses one pill at a time Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



The Sabi Shake is a pill container that will dispense 1 pill at a time for you. I have to say if they are tiny pills you may get more than one out at a time. But the bigger the pill the more likely only 1 will come out. Very easy to use. The whole blue top will come off the bottle, that way you can fill. Just replace the lid and use the flip top to dispense your meds. I messed around with this bottle to see all the things it could do and want to say that it was a thumb opener. I didn't have to grip the bottle or anything just hold and flip lid open with my thumb. I thought that was very convenient.


Each one of these bottles cost $7.99 right now on Amazon.com

SPORT All-terrain, lightweight sporty cane with precision handle and tip

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Right now is the perfect time to have a cane in the house. My son broke his Tibia and Fibula in his left leg. Right now he is in a wheel chair but he might have to use this cane when it comes off. He will be a little wobbly for awhile till his leg builds back up its muscle.

This Sport cane comes in a couple different colors. Which one would you choose?

Purple Rain, True Coral, Sage Green or Twilight Blue


Choose your color of cane and go out in style!

This is a very sturdy cane that can me used to help you go on long walks. You also don't have to stick to the pavement. Great for carpet, grass, dirt and more. The base of the can is a thick piece of rubber that should hold up to any terrain.

The handle has a non slip grip feel to it. This is just an all out good cane to use.

DAYBOX Extra-large weekly pill box with eight detachable day cases Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



This Daybox is big. I loved that you can store lots of meds in this one! The oval shape of the "cubbys" is perfect for removal of you meds. No more little pill getting stuck in the corner of the squared compartment and having to dig it out...that is a fight no one wants to have. Especially is you have arthritis or other bone and muscle issues. Another cool part about this box is that each day is removable. They just click into each other.


That is my favorite feature! You don't have to take the whole week with you. Just take whatever day or days you will need. The Daybox also has an extra day, marked Sabi. You can choose what you would like in this day. If you have super large pills maybe this would be the box you would use for those. I personally love this box.

This lets you carry your pills in style!

FOLIO strap + go weekly small and grande travel pill boxes Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.




The Folio strap is a nice tight elastic. As you saw in the video, it keeps the lid on nice and tight. You don't want your pills falling out all over the place.

The "leather" lid is very easy to wipe down. Just grab a damp cloth and wipe. The compartments were pill accessible. Most pill holder are square. Doesn't make much sense since pills are round and oval. Now this smaller Folio doesn't hold a lot of pills. I wouldn't recommend this for a business trip. Maybe a small weekend getaway. You can pretty much throw in it your brief case or your bag, and go.

You can purchase this product from Amazon.com for $24.99 for the small and $29.99 for the large.

The Grande version holds a lot more pills than the smaller one.


• Capacity: 6 capsules per day
• Weight: 160 g/5.6 oz
• Dimensions: H: 171 mm x W: 97 mm x D: 22 mm/H: 6.7 in x W: 3.8 in x D: 0.9 in

small vs grande

•Measures 6.7-inch long by 3.8-inch wide by 1.5-inch high; BPA-free container easily hand wipes clean with cloth

Sabi HOLSTER clip + go travel pill box Review


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Product Description
The original, smaller version of our HOLSTER grande pill box, HOLSTER is a clip-and-go pill box with three slide-to-access compartments.
The average daily pill box on the market today is sterile and utilitarian-looking. We wanted to create a three-compartment daily pill box that people would be proud to use and take out anywhere, and that would transform the thrice daily pill chore into a ritual to look forward to.
The HOLSTER pill box integrates seamlessly into a busy day. It slides open with a small amount of thumb pressure and easily slides closed. Compartments hold pills of most shapes and sizes and contents are easy to remove.
The HOLSTER pill box is convenient and clips to anything - a bag, a briefcase, a pocket - so that pills of all sorts, from prescription drugs and vitamins to aspirin and sleeping pills, can be accessed quickly, easily, and shamelessly - on flights, on the road, or at a trendy little café.

The Holster was designed so that you can clip it and go anywhere. My daughter would use it on her jeans. You can either hook it to your belt loop or simply just clip it on your pocket. Works the same with your purse or diaper bag. Very handy!

You can purchase this Holster for $8.99 on Amazon.com

•3-compartment case organizes pills, vitamins and dosings for a day or overnight outings
•Ergonomically designed click-and-slide open tray
•Carry along daily pill box easily clips onto bags, packs, purses and clothing
•Deep compartments hold most sizes and shapes of pills and vitamins
•Measures 3.8" L by 1" W by .9" H; BPA-free container easily hand-washable

Sabi 2-Compartment Carafe with Drink Cup and Pill Box

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



Perfect product for those of us that can't just get to water quickly when needing to take your meds. The Carafe makes it so easy to just grab your pills out of the top and drink the water in the bottom, that you already have waiting.


Picture this:
You have a very busy day of meetings but know that you have to take your pills at a certain time or they won't work. So you put your pills into the little storage container, fill the cup part with water or a beverage and take with you. It is a great was to make sure to get your meds on time and not have to interrupt the meeting.


This Sabi Carafe is only $12.99 through Amazon.com

Hermie and Friends: I Will Trust God DVD



Hermie and Friends is a series by Max Lucado. The DVD comes with 2 stories for your child to watch.

The first one is a story like Noah. Hermie and the High Seas. It shows the importance of following God's directions, with faith, even if you don't understand why. God calls on Hermie, during a drought, and tells him to build a boat. Hermie tries to get his friends to help but only one friend would help him. All the other bugs came to make fun of him and then...it started to rain. The other bugs began to panic and Hermie invites them aboard to sail the seas. It shows the children that following Gods will can save your life.

My favorite Character on this one was the Elvis Bee!





The kids were stuck in front of the television watching this DVD.

The 2nd Show on the DVD is called Who is in Charge Anyway?

This episode shows that God has a purpose for everyone and everything. Each person has it's place. God Doesn't Make Mistakes!


This will definitely be a majorly watched DVD


We are now Hermie lovers! We had never seen the Dvd's before. So glad I got to review this one.

LegoLand Kansas City


We had so much fun last week when we got to go to the new LEGOLAND KC!!


We took my son who has 2 broken bones in bottom of his left leg, so he is in a wheelchair. This site was SO helpful and accommodating to our needs! I was so impressed as a lot of places wouldn't be so accommodating. As you enter you can buy a lanyard with a neat book full of games and a place to stop at all the stamp pads throughout the building.


Then you can go into a room that has already built, interactive, Lego sets. Each set is on a timer thing that lights up when the room goes dark. The kids loved the race track. Everything was Legos but the cars were able to be raced by pushing a button. My favorite was the Wizard of Oz set.




The farm house, which I didn't get a picture of, blows air in the room and shows a tornado on the wall. Makes you feel like you are there.
The Witch one, when you push the button, has the witch screaming "I'm melting, I'm melting". So cute!

There is also a stadium.



Looks real doesn't it?

There is another ride that you can take your kids on.



If you have time and can sit for a movie, you will want to. This movie was AWESOME!! It's 3D so you have to wear glasses. It has wind that blows when there is wind blowing in the video, there was snow coming out of the walls when snow flew on the screen, and the lights when lights were flashing on the screen. Was so much fun!

My son, with the broken leg, had the most fun in the Lego pools.


And the Lego building station


We got to make souvenir pennies also. You put the penny in, pay $.50 and it squishes a design onto the penny. Nice way to commemorate your trip.

There is a place to eat and neat Lego lunch boxes that you can buy.




I also peeked in the birthday party rooms. So cute as the birthday child gets to sit in a throne chair.


Ok so my favorite statue in all of LEGOLAND has to be the Darth Vader!!


Oh the way out they had wall of Lego's that you can purchase the colors that you want. So neat!!


So this trip is free for kids 2 and under. For kids above 2 (online it is $14.45) if you purchase at the door it is $17 per person. They do have annual passes and do birthday parties. Check online for prices.

http://www.legolanddiscoverycenter.com/kansascity/tickets-and-offers/ticket-prices.aspx

This is worth EVERY penny!!

I was sent 4 tickets to LEGOLAND KC to go and then post my honest review. All views are my own. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy your trip there as much as we did!




Crafty Craze Custom Wipes Case Review


I purchased this wipes box just because it looked super cute. Nicole, does an awesome job! I do not personally know her but I found her on a local loop and thought I would order one. She can custom make these wipes containers with just about any design. I have seen owls on her page and zebra stripes and many many more designs.


Each box is a simple wipes box with her work around the outside. Not only does she do the travel wipes box which is $10 unless you would like it personalized then it is $13. The personalized strip can be across the wipes box or slanted across a corner. As you can see I love that she picked across the corner for me so that it shows more of the monkeys.


It is designed for easy opening and closing of the box.


So now that you have seen this cute product....she makes many more items. She makes invitations and scrapbook essentials and more.

Check out her Facebook at

www.facebook.com/CraftyCraze

or you can email her at
nakear@hotmail.com

Nicole did not know I was going to write this review. I didn't either but when I saw the cute job she did and I thought this might help her get the word out about her "business".

If you contact Nicole Fowler please tell her that Tracee Bass at Five Lil Bass In Tow sent you. It will disclose that if you do I will get a "bonus" it will accumulate for me to get another case at a discount price. You can earn this too if you refer people.

Thank you for reading!

Daddy and Co. Disposable Changing Pads Review and Giveaway


Unfortunately this scenario happens to me all the time...
I am out and the baby needs to be changed. We go into the public bathroom and their changing table is out of the disposable liners. I have to usually use the baby's blanket or fully wipe down the whole table and reachable spots before I can change her diaper. YUCK!!

I don't like to use public bathrooms and I believe the changers are worse than the toilets!

Daddy and Co has designed a wonderful product that is easy to toss in the diaper bag and even easier to use. This Disposable Diaper Changing Pad is much thicker than the normal changing pads that you can purchase. It is a little thicker than a receiving blanket. I love this product! I finally got to use last night while were out to eat with the family. I felt much safer using this pad that her blanket. It was nice to be able to keep her away from the germs.


As you can see out little girl isn't a small one. This cover was almost long enough for her to be completely covered underneath. Each pad is 68x46. That is a really big size. Each box comes with 10, can't live without, pads. Each box costs only $7.95. Less than a $1 a pad, and worth every penny.

http://www.daddyncompany.com/all-products/accessories/daddys-accessories/disposable-diaper-pads.html

Daddy and co. has some really great products for the dad or dad to be in your life. Fathers Day is coming up quickly, maybe see if there is a gift out there he might need!

Minky Chenille Solid Bib

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


This is a massively soft bib. Our little one loved it. Not only is a nice bib, but she loves rubbing it on her cheeks. Which was actually funny once food got on it. I personally loved that it snaps and doesn't just have Velcro. She typically pulls off her bibs because the Velcro just comes undone. But with the snap she can't just pull the bib off. I would love for them to make bigger bibs for the toddler size. I would so buy some of those. This one was perfect for her. She is 17 months old.

Each minky chenille bib is costs $15

http://bebebelladesigns.com/collections/bib/products/minky-chenille-bib

The plain design comes in lots of colors to choose from:


There are so many other products with this ultimate soft material. Check them out! They run really good sales.

Sensory Development…Serious Play!
March 11 2014, 1 Comment


Sensory development is all about the growth of the five senses: hear, taste, touch, smell and vision. Senses will grow/change through the end of a child’s second year.

Why is sensory development so important? When it comes to developing the senses there’s a domino effect. For example, if an infant’s hearing is not fully developed her speech and language development can be gravely impaired.

Ever wonder why babies always seem to be placing their hands and anything they can grab in their mouth? Infants’ mouths and hands are especially sensitive. In other words, they are busy developing their senses of touch and taste.

HIP HIP HORRAY…it’s time for PLAY!




Bebe Bella Designs is excited to offer you FREE Crinkle Toy! That's right, we are giving away our crinkles! Giveaway starts March 11th and runs through March 31st or while supplies last. Shipping and handling fees do apply. Enter coupon code "freecrinkle" at check out.
