The Day Baby Was Born App and Tommee Tippee Giveaway *Closed*


If you are a new mom or a mom to be I have a really neat web app to tell you about.. The Day Baby Was Born!

The Day Baby Was Born is a free service provided by Tommee Tippee that automatically gathers information about the day your child was born, based on your selections, to create a storybook that you can share with family and friends. Welcoming a child into the world is an amazing journey, and so much happens so quickly it can be hard to remember every detail. This site is a simple way to capture and cherish your memories. Start as soon as you know you're pregnant and catch every detail of the journey.


The Day Baby Was Born is such a neat idea to capture all of the memories throughout your pregnancy and child birth. Unfortunately it wasn't around when my babies were born and we won't be having any more children so I won't be able to try it out. But I did take a look around the site and also read the sample storybook and it seems pretty simple.

Squinkies for Boys Review


Brayden always thought Squinkies looked really cool but of course he didn't want the girl ones so he got so excited when we were out shopping one day and he saw that Blip Toys made a new line of Squinkies for boys. He begged me to add them to his Christmas list for Santa... Little did he know that we were getting the chance to review them!

When our package of the new Squinkies for boys arrived Brayden and Trevor were so excited.. We opened it right up and started playing. Squinkies Bubble Packs for boys come in all of their favorite characters including Cars, Marvel, Hot Wheels, monsters, aliens, ninja's, etc.

      

Their favorite Squinkies product is the Skull Cavern Playset. Not only is it for storing your Squinkies but you can also insert one of the magic coins that comes with it, turn the dial, and out pops a Squinkies surprize! My boys love gumball machines so they think this is just the coolest thing... They play with it for hours on a daily basis! Luckily, if and when the coins get lost, which most of ours have, you can just insert a nickel or dime and it works the same.

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Season 1 Volume 3 on DVD Today!

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Season 1 Volume 3
Own it on DVD Today!

Synopsis: The adventures of a talking dog and his four human pals as they try to unravel the strange and haunted history of their hometown. The tone is comedic, but it will never lose the edge that our heroes are in some frightening situations. The stakes are real.

To say I was obsessed with Scooby-Doo when I was younger would be a bit of an understatement! My bedroom was filled with Scooby-Doo stuffed animals and blankets, my walls were covered with Scooby-Doo posters, and I even had a Scooby-Doo telephone... I have since outgrown the obsession, but have yet to outgrow the love of the show.

A couple years ago Brayden came across some of my old stuffed Scooby's and then he began to love him too! I was so excited when I had the opportunity to review Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Season 1 Volume 3 with my boys.. Of course we loved it and can't wait for the next volume to come out.

Christmas Cards from Tiny Prints


Christmas has always been my favorite Holiday. It's the perfect time of year to spend with loved one's, and if you can't be with loved one's it's the perfect time of year to let your loved one's know you're thinking of them. Since my family lives so far away, I rely mainly on email and phone calls to let them know they're missed.

This year I've decided that I want to send everyone in my family a Christmas card. I am a big fan of anything personalized so of course a personalized card is perfect. I was browsing through the selection of Christmas Cards that Tiny Prints has to offer and was amazed at what I saw.

Tiny Prints has 436 Christmas and Holiday Cards (don't feel overwhelmed, just use the filters to narrow down the selection)... And I fell in love with more than half of them! Whether you're looking for something classic, contemporary, vintage, or even whimsy Tiny Prints has got you covered.. They also have cards for the kids including Dora, Hello Kitty, Wonder Pets, and Kai-lan.

Bobbs and the Little Boy Review and Giveaway *Closed*


Every child has a special stuffed animal who shares the joys and scares of life with them. For the Little Boy in Diane Page's new children's book Bobbs and the Little Boy it was Bobbs. The Little Boy begged his mother to buy this stuffed creature who he names Bobbs and who becomes his best friend. Bobbs helps the Little Boy to understand the questions children ask about life like why some children are afraid of large dogs or thunder and what exactly is daycare. Bobbs and the Little Boy is a 34 page, hardbacked fully illustrated book aimed at children age 2-7.

Having two little boys who love their stuffed animals I was more than thrilled to review Bobbs and the Little Boy. While the 34 page book was a little long for Trevor to sit through, we really enjoyed it. I think this will definitely be a favorite for the years to come!

**Win It**
One Life With Two Boys reader will get the opportunity to share Bobbs and the Little Boy with their children.

Money Savvy Generation Review and Giveaway *Closed*


Teaching my boys to save money is very important to me, mainly because my husband and I are so bad at it. Thanks to Money Savvy Generation and their adorable pig bank we now have a unique way to teach them to save.

About the Money Savvy Pig: One slot piggy banks have been around for....centuries. But the world has changed. Now we have a highly sophisticated financial system, a system whose complexity has outstripped the ability of most adults, many of whom grapple with credit card debt, even bankruptcy. Personal finance education needs to start young. How? With the same universally loved childhood toy, the piggy bank....but with a 21st century twist! The Money Savvy Pig piggy bank has four chambers, one for each of the four money management choices a child should be taught from the time they are small. They are SAVE, SPEND, DONATE, and INVEST.

   

The Money Savvy Pig is available in six different colors and includes a sheet of different money management goal stickers so your child can choose what they want to save their money for. We chose to save for a car, spend on a new bike, donate gifts to children, and invest in their education.. I personally think these are all wonderful goals to save for!

Synopsis: BABAR THE CLASSIC SERIES: SCHOOL DAYS features four episodes about Babar’s own school day adventures as well as those of his friends and family. In each tale Babar learns important lessons on acceptance, honesty and patience.

But he soon realizes everyone should be proud of themselves because differences are what make everyone unique and special.

In “Peer Pressure” King Babar recalls having to make a tough decision between loyalty to friendship and loyalty to the law.
