Brinware Pretty Tableware for Kids

     Tableware for kids is usually made from plastic. Kids can be rough on things including dishes.  Recently I learned about Brinware. Brinware is children's tableware made from tempered glass. They have beautiful scenes of a garden party, aquatic life, and barn yard printed onto the back of tempered glass dishes. Brinware is durable, microwave and dishwasher safe. They have colorful silicone sleeves to cushion from slips and falls.

     I received the dish set of 2 in the garden party print. The dishes are 7.5" round. They have 2 beautiful prints. One is a tree with an owl in it and the other one has a bird, flowers, and butterflies. The silicone covers are in pink and purple. The size is perfect for a child. And the prints are adorable.  The silicone slip cover fits perfectly and provides the protection needed. I used the plates with Madilyn some.  She loved picking up her food off of it and pointing at the pretty pictures.  These are plates that she can continue to use for years.

     I also received the multi-purpose container in garden party. This is a food storage container made of borosilicate glass and FDA approved silicone. The silicone has a cute cut out pattern for added cuteness and it allows you to see through the glass. It holds 2 1/4 cups or 18.6 oz of food. The lid is completely made from silicone.  It fits tightly to form a good seal.  It is perfect for storing snacks, meals, or leftovers.  It also matches the dishes I received.

     Brinware also has placemats and catch all silicone bucket bibs to match. These make a great addition to any child's meal. They would also make a great gift.  Brinware is now available at Target. And right now Brinware has a special discount code when you purchase at Target.  Use the code BRINWARE20 and save 20% at checkout (at Target), now through 10/1. 

Thank you to Brinware for the review!!

Coop Sports Reactorz Basketball Plus Giveaway

     My oldest son is 8 years old.  Jayden has always liked sports.  He likes many different sports.  Lately he has really liked basketball.  He recently joined his school basketball team.  He likes to spend time in the evening once it cools off a little playing basketball.  When I heard about Reactorz I thought it would be a great new ball for him.

     Reactorz is the newest line from COOP Sports. Reactorz are made with reactive light technology. So when you kick the soccer ball or toss a football the ball illuminates on contact. There are 8 different Reactorz balls with built in LED lights. The secret to the light is a long lasting battery life built in each ball and the micro prism core that refracts light.  Each Reactorz has one of three core colors - Atomic (lime), Ice (blue), and Lava (red). There is a contrasting shield color covering the balls. The shield has a textured construction that makes it easy to grip, throw, catch, and kick.

     We received the Reactorz regulation size basketball. When it came I was surprised how nice it was. The color is bright and bold.  The ball has a nice feel to it. The ball bounces easily and lights up with minimal contact. When Jayden saw it he thought it was really cool.  Jayden couldn't wait to use it and shoot some hoops. He had fun bouncing the ball and shooting hoops.  He was excited that he made many baskets. It looks great bouncing in the evening when he plays and as it goes in the hoop. This ball has become the first one he reaches for when he plays.


     Isaac Newton's law of motion, for every action there is an equal and reaction, but when kids are playing with Reaactorz balls that reaction is bright and fun. Reactorz come in football, micro football, playground ball, soccer ball, regulation size basketball, micro gripz, gripz, and discs.

Win it:  One (1) Arizona Mama reader will win their choice of a Reactorz. 

Enter in the Giveaway  Tools form below! This giveaway will be open until 9/7 at 11:59PM (MST).  Open to US.

Big Red Rooster Baby Sound Machine Plus #Giveaway

Baby Sound Machine With 6 Sounds
     Just about every parent has a time when they are going crazy with getting their baby to sleep.  There are tips to help get baby to sleep everywhere. Swaddling, rocking, pacifiers, lulabyes, white noise, and more. Each of my children have had their own way to help them go to sleep.  My oldest needed to be swaddled, hear his mobile music, and use a pacifier.  My middle just wanted to be close to mommy, he had to be touching me.  And baby Madilyn likes her pacifier, rocking, and lullabys.
Baby Sound Machine With 6 Sounds

     Big Red Rooster has a baby sound machine that can help baby get to easily.  The Baby Sound Machine can be set for 15, 30, or 60 minutes.  There are six sounds to choose from: the ocean, heartbeat, lullaby, rock-a-bye, tiwnkle twinkle, or white noise. It's small design is great for any nursery and even for travel.  So you can help baby sleep where every you go.  It comes with an AC adaptor to plug in.  It also takes 3 AA batteries if you want to use it on the go.  Not only can this sound machine help baby get to sleep, but it can also help baby sleep longer at night and during the day.  The sound machine can help drown out the daytime noise that can interrupt baby's sleep.

(Disclaimer: She does not sleep with the sound machine in her crib.  
These pictures were just for show.)

     Madilyn likes lullaby and sounds to help her sleep.  She likes the sound of the ocean and white noise sometimes and other times she prefers twinkle star or rock-a-bye baby. I really like the small light weight design of this sound machine. It fits just about anywhere.  I like the portabilty of it.  Sometimes Madilyn gets fussy in the car and I can take this along for car rides with batteries to help calm her. I have been very happy with this baby sound machine.  This would be a great gift for anyone with a new baby in their life.


Win it:  One (1) Arizona Mama reader will receive their own Big Red Rooster Baby Sound Machine

Tiny Love On-The-Go Summer Essentials

  There are a few baby brands that I trust and love.  Tiny Love is definitely at the top of my list.  They have some of the cutest items.  Their items are always functional and educational. Tiny Love has a couple of new items and sent them to me to review.
     The Spin 'N' Kick Discovery Arch is the only play arch that engages baby's hands and feet in play.  It has a double arch bar.  One arch has some fun features like a 7 page crinkly peek-a-boo book and a puppy rattle.  The second arch has rotating rattle paddles.  The arch easily attaches to strollers, baby carriers, and bouncy chairs.  The discovery arch engages fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and cognitive skills. Baby is able to see cause and effect. The arches can be interchanged so baby can either kick or hit the rotating rattle paddles. It is great for portable summer travel fun.

   Madilyn loves the play arch we already have from Tiny Love.  I knew she would love the Spin 'N' Kick Discovery Arch too.  I really like how it attaches.  I was able to add it to her bounce seat and even on her car seat. We have not used the stroller in a while, but it does easily attach there too.  Madilyn likes to hit the rotating paddles with her feet and her hands.  She likes to put the crinkly peek-a-boo book in her mouth.  The double arches can switch places so the rotating paddles can be by her feet or up where she can touch them with her hands.

Crinkly Raccoon Travel Toy

     Tiny Love also sent us the Crinkly Raccoon.  It is a cute lightweight clip toy.  It is double-sided and unfolds to explore basic patterns.  It stimulates senses and helps to develop fine motor skills with the crinkly texture.  It attaches to just about anything.  Madilyn loves shaking and banging this around.  She chews on it and squeezes it.  I really like I can take it anywhere.  And the raccoon is just so cute.
