The Baby Banana Brush

If you look at the shape of this silicone toothbrush you will notice that the child can't poke themselves, like you can with regular toothbrushes. The shape of the banana is perfect for their little hands.

Great to teeth on while keeping their budding teeth clean!

There are banana's and corn cobs, how cute is that?

The Baby Banana Brush Story:
A few years ago, my two-year-old grandson tripped and fell on his toothbrush as he was trying to brush his teeth. The traditional hard plastic toothbrush punctured the roof of his mouth and came within centimeters of entering his brain. As a mother of 8, I knew that this all-to-common occurrence of babies falling on hard toothbrushes should be preventable, but how? As these questions were on my mind, I discussed them with my daughter-in-law, who is a dental hygienist and with her insight the idea for a flexible infant toothbrush was born.

She taught me about the safety specifications we would need, such as a slight "C" shape to our brush. We brainstormed about ideas of fun things that might fit that "C" shape and came up with the Banana! I had some experience from previous products my company was developing with plastics and other materials. I consulted with several engineers and determined that 100% medical grade silicone would be the best material to serve our "flexible" needs.Next, I went to Taiwan - the silicone capital of the world - in 2004. There I met with the company that would eventually become our manufacturer. We had our toothbrush FDA registered, patented and tested with private labs. We knew we had created something unique - a flexible toothbrush and teether in one - which did not exist in the market at that time.

We launched our product at the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists Convention in Washington, D.C. May 2008. There was lots of excitement for the product at this convention, and we began selling our toothbrush in pediatric dental offices and baby boutique stores.

I can't wait to review this item! Watch for it soon!

2. Vitamin C "Tangy" Orange Melts 500 mg: Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that cannot be produced by the body, therefore it must be replenished daily. Vitamin C also provides support to the body's immune system, very helpful in a season where people catch colds and flu. No sugar is added, these products are only sweetened by stevia; this is preferable to most 'chewable' vitamin C products that are typically loaded with lots of sugar.

4. Children's Echenacea: Zinc is an essential mineral required by more than 300 enzymes for the support of multiple systems and functions in the human body. Studies have indicated that zinc promotes recovery from the common cold and related symptoms. Superior Source Zinc Lozenjets are formulated with an herbal blend as added protection for children's health and immune system support.

Just place one MicroLingual Tablet Ã�ï¿ 1/2Ã� under the tongue and within seconds the Sublingual Micro-Tab is dissolved and the nutrients are sped into the blood stream. The combination of B-12 / B-6 & Folic Acid provides essential nutrients for the well being of the heart, by working synergistically to achieve a lower Homocysteine level which in turn lowers the risk of developing heart disease as well as providing nutritive support for healthy cardiovascular functions.

6. Sweet 'n Natural Stevia: Stevia naturally sweet dietary supplement used for both hot and cold beverages. The glycosides from the stevia leaf, called steviosides, are an amazing 200 times sweeter than sugar. Studies have shown that steviosides, may support healthy heart function, help to protect the teeth from dental caries and promote healthy blood glucose levels. Superior Source uses the finest raw materials and a unique blending and manufacturing process to produce the smoothest tasting stevia available with no aftertaste.

Griddly Games Show Me The Kwan

It's not quite a board game, definitely not a video game, and a whole lot of fun! It plays very quickly and works for any number of players (ages 10+ - can be slightly younger if simple spelling of words is not frustrating).

Show Me the Kwan is a fast-paced, dice rolling, word game. Given the chosen category the players must call out fitting words where either the first, second or last letter correspond to the lettered dice that were rolled. Each dice has an assigned point value. At the end of the 1 minute round, all players must count their points on the dice they collected. http://shop.griddlygames.com/ and use code FREESHIP for free shipping on Kwan ONLY, or code 10FORME for 10% off @usfg @griddlygames

Looks like loads of fun! Review to come!!

Dura Tags @Jolly Awesome Pet Tag Review and Giveaway

Our pets are part of the family. We have Sophie, our 6 year old yorkie.

She is my little love puppy. So sweet. She got out one day and we couldn't find her. I was devastated. I started making phone calls because I had taken her collar off to give her a bath and hadn't put it back on her. We finally found out she was picked up by a puppy pound, here in town. Took us a while to get her back. Her tags didn't have out updated information on it, even if she had of had her tags on. I really learned my lesson!

Shortly after this happened, I found out that I could do this review. I am so thankful. We have new updated tags for 3 of our beloved pets.

Hershee, my daughters, mixed yorkie who is almost a year old.

And our adult cat Katniss (she is cat on the right)

The process to get these adorable tags is so easy. Just start off by going to www.JollyAwesomePetTags.com and looking around.

3 personalized tags normally cost $16.95 but right now through their sale the set is only $14.95.

You can also just purchase 1 pet tag for $12.95

Just go to their website and click on create tag. Once there just pick if you want the 3 or 1 and click on that link.

Design Tool Instructions
Like many online design tools, our online tool allows you to upload a photo and resize it to fit the tag. The best looking tags are those where the photo covers the entire tag

On the front of the tag you put your pets picture, you can add their name to the front if you would like. And all the information for your pet goes on the back. We have Sophie's name, address, her age and my phone numbers. I do not want to lose her again. We got one tag for each of the 3 animals. Each one with phone numbers, address and name of the pet.

I will not be posting a picture of the back of the tags due to all our personal information is on there. But you can customize by using different colors for the words. I used black so that the words were very easy to read.

These pet id tags are not flimsy. I did try to bend it and it did not bend. These are made of a heavy plastic. Hershee is a very energetic and wild puppy. She has not managed to scratch or break her Dura Tag™ while running or playing. I am so pleased with the durability of these tags

My advise would be to definitely make sure that you get your pet tagged. Losing a pet is so hard...

The more tags you buy, the bigger the discount.

About Dura-tags™
Dura-tags™ are a new type of pet ID tags that consumers create online via our online design tool. Consumers upload a color image of their pet to be shown on one side of the tag and enter text information on the back. Unique to our offering is our flagship product that allows customers to create 3 "mix or match" tags for $16.95. Dura-tags™ are fully guaranteed and are designed to withstand physical abuse.

What we have found is that pet lovers of all kinds (dogs, cats, birds, fish, horses, etc) love our tag concept because it provides a custom photo pet tag that is unique and original and provides extra tags for pet gear or other accessory items.

About the Company:
JollyAwesomePetTags.com was founded out of a true need. Seeing a lack in the marketplace for a truly custom pet tag, Dura-tags™ was founded with the sole purpose of providing pet lovers with a uniquely original pet ID concept. More than a "one-word" noisy metal tag, Dura-tags™ are a “noise-free” option that provides pet owners with a tag that is both unique and an “one-of-a-kind original” that is strong and durable.

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.

Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Review

This stuff smells AMAZING! Do you buy Bath and Body Works items? Have you smelled Sweet Pea? That is exactly what the Well Being scent smells like. So fresh and yummy smelling.

Each 18oz bottle of this is packed with freshness that lasts for weeks. I haven't found another brand of crystals that can match the length of lasting scent that Purex has.

There are 3 scents.
Well Being, Energy and Serenity.

Pick one and express to the world what your mood is. Each one has either a citrus or floral scent to it. These just became available in mid October.

So if you are looking for a laundry enhancer with a fresh laundry scent, check out Purex Crystals Aromatherapy. In my opinion, you won't be disappointed. Our laundry has never smelled so good. Purex Crystals Aromatherapy helps eliminate those nasty odors. I have kids that play sports and work hard. The odor is gone.

We only use Purex detergents in this house because we have found that their products do not irritate my sons skin. He has problems with lots of soaps and detergents. Purex is not one of those. So glad because the price is great and my laundry comes out smelling fresh and clean!
