COOP Sports Summer Fun Games Review

No automatic alt text available.

     It is summer time and school is out.  Now is the time to figure out how to keep the kids busy and active.  So many kids want to sit on the couch and play video games, I know my boys do.  So getting them up and moving is sometimes a chore.  COOP Sports has some great fun products to help get the kids active this summer.  I was able to get a few fun products to try out.



     The first item I received was the 8" playground ball.  This ball features reactive light technology that emits light bursts anytime it is touched, bounced, thrown, or kicked.  It has bright LED lights inside.  It has a textured shield that covers the ball.  It makes it easier to grip and throw.  My boys love playing with the ball.  They use it for playing 4 square, catch, and even a little basketball.  




     The second item I received was the 9" Football.  It also features the reactive light technology.  So when the ball is thrown, caught, or kicked it will show bursts of light. The micro-prism core refracts light while openings in the outer shield carve the light.  It creates a very cool light effect and allows for an interactive experience for the players.  The sculpted shield adds texture and makes it easier to grip and  throw as well as catch. This is another item my boys love.  It has been great to play in the early evening.  Its great because it is cooler than the day time and with the light up feature the boys can see the ball. 




     The third and final item I received was the Hydro Spring Hoop. This is a floating net for playing  basketball in the pool.  The net easily springs open and closes down with an inner spring the the base of the basket.  The fabric cover helps to add durability to the inflation chambers as well as give it some color. It also included a textured grip non-slip inflatable basketball. It also comes with a carry/storage bag.  Unfortunately we have not been able to use this yet, but I can't wait until we can.  Evan broke his arm the same week we received this and could not go swimming because he can't get his cast wet.  He just got the cast off so we will be using this very soon. The  Hydro Spring Hoops is not part of the reactorz products so it does not light up.  



     COOP Sports has so many great products to get the kids up and moving.  The LED Lights in the reactor balls are powered by batteries that are included, but not replaceable.  I do like that the reactorz products can be used at night since sometimes it is to hot during the day that the evening is the best time to get our and move.  If your  looking for something to do this Memorial Day weekend check out COOP Sports. I think the Hydro Spring Hoops would be great for a pool party or the Reactorz football for an evening game with family and friends.  


Thank you to COOP Sports for providing the above mentioned products for review.

Hallmark Baby Pink Flamingo Sun Dress #LoveHallmark

Image may contain: text
     Hallmark is a great store for celebrations and memories.  They have a variety of great gift options.  And now they have some sweet baby clothing  too.  They recently came out with a very cute summer line of clothing for baby and toddler.  I received the Pink Flamingo Sun Dress for Madilyn.

Image result for Hallmark Baby Pink Flamingo Sundress #LoveHallmark

     Madilyn loves dresses, well clothes in general, but dresses are her tops.  She will always pick the dress over anything else in her drawer.  So I was excited for her to get a new one.  This is a simple pullover sun dress.  It is made with 100% cotton and is lightweight.  It is tank top style.  It is a white background with a pink flamingo standing on the front.  It is made with ink-based dyes to resist bleach fading.  The material is very soft and comfortable.  It comes in sizes from 3-6 months up to 4-5 years.  It can also be personalized with babies name.


     Madilyn is my tiny girl and wears from 9 to 12 months (she is 17 months).  So I received the dress in 6-12 months size. The first time putting the dress on it fit well.  Although Madi is on the small side she is tall and skinny.  So the dress is a little on the short side and requires some little bloomers or shorts under it. I probably should have gotten the 12-18 month size, but its ok.  Madi doesn't care, she loves it.  When she put it on she strutted around so happy.  The dress is adorable.  Even with it a little short it fits perfectly in shoulders, arms, and body.


      Of course Madilyn went to play outside and got dirty.  She loves her girly dresses, but won't let it stop her from jumping into play with her brothers.  She got the dress all dirty.  Unfortunately it is now stained.  I do wish it was a color instead of the white background.  It now has a stain down the front from playing outside. But unfortunately this has happened to a few of her outfits since she jumps right in with her brothers.


     Hallmark Baby has many adorable outfits for girls and boys.  If you are looking for a special outfit or a nice baby gift check out Hallmark Baby.

Thank you to Hallmark for the review!!

Little Adventures Princess Dress Up Review & Giveaway


     After finding out I was pregnant with my little girl I did have visions of her dressed up in little princess dresses.  I look forward to the time she would prance around all dressed up.  Now as Madi grows I know this will be my reality for sure.  She loves dresses.  She twirls around and around whenever she has one on. When I heard from Little Adventures asking if I wanted to try one of their princess dresses I of course jumped at the chance.  I just knew Madi would love it.
