Medicine time made easy with AVA the Elephant!

I remember seeing AVA the Elephant on ABC's Shark Tank and I thought it was one of the cutest things I had ever seen. Well, recently I was given the opportunity to try out this invention and I have to say it's even cuter in person!

Created by Mompreneur, Tiffany Krumins, AVA the Elephant is a talking children’s medicine dispenser that takes the fear and anxiety out of administering medicine to children 3 months and older. AVA works with all liquid prescription medications, over the counter medicines, and vitamins and is super easy to use. Simply fill the provided BPA free dropper to the desired amount, insert the dropper into AVA until secure, push the button to hear AVA talk, then place her in your child's mouth and squeeze until all the medicine is dispensed.

Now, instead of babies and toddler seeing these scary looking medicine droppers coming toward their mouth, they'll see AVA and hear her encouragement. Personally, my boys have always hated taking medicine and even though Brayden's a little old for AVA I know she's going to be a hit with Trevor next time he gets sick!

Celebrate Earth Day with Growums Garden Kits- Review and Giveaway *Closed*

Earth Day is only a few days away and what better way to celebrate than by letting your children grow their own garden. With mom (or dad) and the help of Growums, kids have everything they need to grow their very own herbs and vegetables... How cool is that?!

So what exactly are Growums? They are basically themed garden kits that allow kids to grow complete gardens from seed to harvest. They come in six different varieties including a Taco Garden, Pizza Garden, Stir Fry Garden, Herb Garden, Ratatouille Garden, and Salad Garden. Each garden has it's own characters that come to life when you register your garden online where you'll get to play games, watch videos, and even track the progress of your garden.

We were recently sent a Growums Salad Garden kit to review and I was really surprised at how simple the process was. You see, I have no "green thumb" whatsoever so I really needed the simplicity of the Growums kit to help me out!

WAT-AAH! Review and Giveaway *Closed*

Like most moms I hate to see my boys constantly drinking sugary drinks and juices which is why I was so excited when I discovered WAT-AAH! Without even knowing what WAT-AAH! is I'm sure you're thinking your kids will love it just based on the name alone, right?!

WAT-AAH! is a line of functional water for kids free of sugar or sweeteners of any kind. Rose Cameron, mom of two and inventor of WAT-AAH!, created the product when her boys told her that they don't like to drink water because it's boring. So with the help of her two boys, Rose created the first brand of water by kids for kids with a mission to help lead the fight against childhood obesity.

Free of artificial sweeteners, sugars, and chemicals, WAT-AAH! is pure, clean, and healthy hydration for kids. It comes in five different varieties, all of which have a super cool bottle to help encourage your kids to drink it.
