     Madilyn is not quite big enough for this, but it didn't stop me from getting it for her future. She is a girly girl and she will love it in the future. I love the color selection, but it did make it more difficult to pick with all the colors to choose from. I received the mermaid tail very quickly after ordering. The colors are beautiful.  I can't wait for her to grow into it.  I think it would also be great for pictures. The quality is great.

Holiday Travel with Kids Made Easy with mifold

mifold Grab-n-Go Booster Car Seat in Slate Grey
     When you have kids traveling for the holidays comes with an added concern. If you plan to travel you need to think about car seat safety. We don't usually travel by plane, but I know many people do. Traveling on a plane with a child or three with their car seats or even booster seats can be difficult. They can be big and bulky to carry or difficult to check. When I saw the mifold I knew this was a great option for those traveling by plane. But like I said we don't often travel by plane.  But I was still interested in this as often times our kids might ride in someone else's car, which also means a switch of car seats or booster seats.

     The mifold works a bit differently than the average booster seat.  It adjusts the adult-sized seat belt to securely fit a child.  So rather than lifting a child up to fit the seat belt is pulls the belt down to fit the child. It has two red lap belt guides to hold the lap belt accurately on the hi bones. The shoulder strap and red clip aligns the chest strap with the child's shoulder. This makes the mifold very small and compact. That is why it is so convenient for holiday travel or travel anytime.

     We first tried the mifold when Jayden went to sleep over at his friends house.  My friend came to pick him up and this time I didn't have to pull out his big high back booster seat like I normally do.  I just handed her the mifold. She was happy because she already has a car seat and booster for her two boys so adding a third is often difficult. The mifold fits easily with room. It was really easy to use and place in her car.  Then after the sleep over when I went to get him all she had to do is place it in his backpack. No need to reinstall his booster back in my car. I asked Jayden what he thought and he liked it.  He was comfortable and still felt safe.

     The mifold says it can be used for ages 4 and up. It is designed to replace a booster seat. So if your child is currently in a booster seat it should work. I don't really feel comfortable with it that young. Evan is tall and skinny at 5 years old and I don't know if I feel as comfortable with him using it. But I think it is great for Jayden. He is 9 and still not at a point to move out of the booster seat. I really like that we have the option of the mifold for him. It will be great when he goes to his friends for sleep overs or rides in relatives cars. And of course if we were to travel by plane it will be a great for him on the plane and other modes of transportation out of town. The mifold also comes in a variety of colors and you can get a carry case for it also. 

Thank you to mifold for the review opportunity.

Holiday Gift: Passback Football #holidaygift

Passback Sports

     Do you have a kid that enjoys playing football, but doesn't always have someone to play with?  I know my 9 year old likes to play football, but my 5 year old doesn't always want to play with him. So that leaves my son to beg me or my husband to play with him or not play. But now with Passback he can play by himself. 

     Passback Sports makes their footballs a-of-a-kind training tool that is thrown like a regulation ball but engineered to hit a surface and come spiraling back. Just aim the flat side of the ball to any wall surface and be amazed as it boomerangs back to the person that threw it. It's just like having the perfect practice partner when no one is around. This is a great way to get your kid outside playing and exercising. They can throw and catch with or without any friends. The Passback helps to develop hand-eye coordination and build gross motor skills.  The Passback comes in 3 sizes, Official size for adults and teens, Junior size for ages 9-13, and Peewee size for ages 4-8.  Each are sized perfectly for different levels and ages.

     We received the Junior size Passback football to try. It is really unique in how it is made and looks.  It mostly looks like a regular football and even feels like a regular football.  The one difference is the flat rubber end on one side.  Jayden was excited to try this out. We went out to the greenbelt behind our house.  He threw it a few times against the wall and got a good feel for what he needs to do.  He had fun throwing the ball and it was great for him to practice catching too.  He likes to throw, but needs work on his catching. He did want to try to play football with it too and it is possible, but a little awkward as it is not full size. Jayden even threw it straight down on the sidewalk to see it bounce up.  

     Passback makes for a great gift for holidays or birthdays. Jayden was enjoying it so much when his friends birthday was last week we decided to get him a Passback too.  His friend is a big fan of football and always wants to play.  Problem is his brother is too small to play with him and he is often bugging his mom and dad or just doesn't get to play much.  It comes at perfect timing for him as his football season is over and now he has something to help him continue to play and practice. 
     If you have a football fan on your holiday list check out the Passback Football. You can buy them online through their website or on Amazon.

Thank you to Passback Sports for the Review!!

Brick Loot Candy Shop

     Recently I told you about Brick Loot.  It is a box subscription company for LEGO and Brick fans.  It is a monthly box that is filled with unique, custom, and not seen before items.  I received our first box this week and I was happily surprised. The boxes are filled with 4-8 items.

     The box I received is the Candy Shop.  It came with the legos to build a little candy shop, legos to build a cotton candy stand, Lego chocolates, candy shop minifigure and a silicone mold to make candy. It is all so cute.  We put together the cotton candy stand right away. The instructions were easy to follow to put it together. Although it is much too big for the minifigure to be the person selling cotton candy. We have not had a chance to put together the candy store, but I'm sure the boys will be excited to play with it as we get a chance to put it all together.

     I can't wait to see what comes in our next Brick Loot subscription box.
