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.

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.

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.

Best Baby Muslin Fitted Crib Sheet #MusliFitteCribSheet



     Sleep is something all parents want their babies to do. It is not always easy to get babies to sleep or to stay asleep. Sleep comes easier when the bed is comfortable. Muslin is soft and gets even softer the more it is used and washed. I recently received the Best Baby Muslin Fitted Crib Sheet for my little one to try.


      The Best Baby muslin fitted crib sheet is made with 100% certified organic cotton. It is hypoallergenic. It fits a standard size crib or toddler mattress. It is white with bumble bees on it, making it good for boys or girls. It can easily be paired with a pillow and flat sheet for a bed set. The crib sheet is pre-washed and free from dyes, bleach and pesticides.


      The muslin crib sheet fits well on the mattress. It is soft and cozy. I like that it is breathable and cool during the summer time. With the heat in Arizona anything to keep cool is good. The sheet is soft and gets softer everytime I wash it. The bees are cute. There are some runs in the color of some of the bees. But this does not upset the function of the sheet and it is not really that noticable.

O-Sip! Silicone Straw Lids (Pack of 3) #OSipLids



      O-Sip: A spill-proof drink lid with a straw hole that fits over virtually any cup or glass. Simply stretch the lid over the top of one and voila-a spill-proof cup! Perfect for the little "Butterfingers" in your family. These lids are great for families at restaurants, too-no need to bring along a sippy cup. Use O-Sip, add a straw, and instantly make the restaurant's glass spill-proof. Perfect for BBQs and Parties! Snap these lids over a mason jar to create a fun drink that keeps the bugs and dust out. O-Sip is Ideal for kids who are old enough to drink through a straw, but not old enough to stop spilling. By the way, they are incredibly easy to clean. You can pop them into boiling water to sterilize, or throw them in the dishwasher. On the go. At the park. At the soccer game. In the car. Next to your laptop. Handy for minimizing spills where you should not be spilling!

Benefits/Features: 
- Fits openings 2.5-3.75 inches 
- Recommended age 9 months+ 
- High-quality, food-grade silicone 
- BPA and phthalate-free material 
- Dishwasher safe 
- Makes drink spill-proof, not leak-proof 
- Foldable and stackable for easy storage 
- Practically any straw fits: Plastic, Metal or those Cute Paper Ones 
- Unique gift for adults, kids or potential "spillers" of any age
Finally, a solution for your "drink-spilling child" any time you hand them a cup!


     I tried the O-Sip Silicone Straw Lids. The silicone is well made and brightly colored.  I tried the lids, but unfortunatelly they would not fit over any cup I own. I could not stretch or pull them over any cups. I really wanted these to work. My 3 year old can be a little clumsey and spills often.  A lid for his favorite cups would be great. The concept of these is great. I just wish they fit wider opening cups.  Be sure if your interested in getting these you understand the fit openings 2.5- 3.75 inches. These didn't really work for us, but if you have smaller cups then they may work well for you.

Drowning Prevention With Private Swim Lessons At Your Home


     Just yesterday I saw another heart breaking story about a child that fell in the pool and drowned.  These stories happen way too often.  Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in the US among children under 5 years old. 9 out of 10 drowning deaths happen while a caregiver is present. Seconds really do count, just answering the phone, checking facebook, running to the bathroom, any of these things can turn into tragedy if it takes your eyes off a child near water.  It only takes 2 inches of water for a child to drown. The saddest thing about child drownings is how it is completely preventable. One of the first steps to drowning prevention is education.

Get Your LIttle One Moving With Huggies Little Movers at Sam's Club #MyLittleMover


     My little girl is starting to get a little more mobile. She wants so badly to go everywhere her brothers are going. She is not yet crawling, but she will roll, scoot, and creep. I will put her in one place and moments later I am shocked to find her in a completely different place. She is even trying to pull up and time she can. My little mover is really working on these big milestones in her development. She is on the verge of so much, I don't want to miss any of it. I also don't want to slow her down. Huggies Little Movers diapers help my little mover keep moving.
