Fold-out mirrors allow children to read the book while they copy all of the funny faces inside. Fun illustrations delight children and help them to match the silly faces. Additional titles in this fun series include Smile Like a Princess, Roar Like a Lion, and Yee-haw Like a Cowboy. Learn More »
This book is filled with simple colorful pictures and printed sounds that kids can mimic. It's alot like the game, Simon Says, with interactive illustrations of animals they will learn to recognize, if they don't already. Moo Like a Cow is a fun way to match animal names with their animal sounds. My daughter enjoyed flipping through the book and finding the fold out pages with mirrors to see herself make the funny noises.
Boom Chicka Pop Kettle Corn features the sweet & salty flavor combination that's delicious and carefree. With simple ingredients like popcorn, sunflower oil, dried cane sugar, and sea salt, Boom Chicka Pop boasts natural flavors and packs only 70 calories per cup. I enjoyed snacking on this lightly flavored, slightly addicting snack with my daughter; one bag is the perfect serving size for a mommy-daughter after nap treat. Other Boom Chicka Pop products include a wide variety of flavored popcorn, baked ancient grain puffs, and ancient grain popcorn clusters. They have something for everyone in the family to enjoy!

I found the Earthwise facial oil to be delightfully fragrant without being excessively greasy. I smooth it on at night after removing my makeup for a refreshing once-over before bed. A little goes a long way!

I was primarily impressed with the fast-drying properties of this nail polish. My nails were dry almost as soon as I completed the last fingernail! This is particularly important when painting my 3-year-old's nails to reduce smudging. She always wants me to paint her nails, and then wants me to paint mine too, except that it's almost not worth doing my nails with all the dish washing and diaper changing that I do. This nail polish actually makes me want to paint my nails because it lasted a decent amount longer than other brands when I tested it, primarily chipping off along the edge of my nail tips (rather than chipping off in larger chunks like nail polish often does). This made it really easy to touch up my nails after 2-3 days. Overall I really liked the quality, and loved this particular color! SquareHue comes in a wide variety of colors, within a monthly subscription box; after all, who doesn't love getting surprise nail polish hues in the mail!?

The all natural ingredients are non-irritating, gentle and not sticky. NeatCheeks wipes are mom-invented in Colorado and made in the USA with solar energy. Learn More »
My little ones don't resist face wiping too much, but they definitely loved the novelty of these sweetened wipes. My 10-month-old kept trying to lick the wipe, and my 3-year-old couldn't wait to try one, or two or three. :) I like how these wipes easily fit in a purse and they comes in a handy little packet for use after snack time or at restaurants. I wondered if the sweetness of these wipes would make them sticky, but they are actually pretty refreshing. I can see how they would be very convenient for kids who are adverse having their face wiped.

I like the idea of individual spice packets. Often my spice bottles sit in the cabinet for years, being used a little at a time. Ground 2 Table packets allow you to use the entire packet in your recipe, wasting none and they even come with suggested recipes! Ground 2 Table seasonings include:
