Design a YooHoo & Friends Contest

For the first time ever, fans of the best selling plush toy line (over 22 million sold), YooHoo & Friends, have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to help manufacturer Aurora World design the next YooHoo. The consumer-facing, online contest (or social promotion), hosted on the official YooHoo & Friends Facebook page, asks contestants to download a predesigned template of line art. Then, either by drawing or using a computer program (e.g.: Photoshop) contestants design their entries for consideration in an all new YooHoo dinosaur line to hit shelves in April 2013. Aurora's judges will review all entries and determine a grand prize winner. The winning design will be made into a special edition YooHoo to debut at Toy Fair 2013.

Crunch Pak FlavorZ- Healthy Snacks for Kids!

Last summer we had the opportunity to review Crunch Pak Disney products and my boys loved them so much that we've been buying them ever since. Well, Crunch Pak recently launched a new line of sliced apple snacks for kids called FlavorZ and we were very excited when they offered to send us some to review.

About Crunch Pak FlavorZ:
Crunch Pak FlavorZ are apples infused with a natural flavoring that result in another fruit flavor. The apples are infused after slicing which means the texture and appearance are not changed. Crunch Pak FlavorZ are available in three aromatic fruit flavors: Peach/mango, grape and strawberry vanilla cream. The Flavorz packages feature popular Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Phineas and Ferb and beloved Disney Princess characters such as Snow White.

Celebrate Halloween with Hershey's Halloween Boo Blvd.

Like many families, Hershey candy is an all-time favorite Halloween treat in our house. My boys love to dress up on Halloween, go door-to-door trick or treating, then come home and see all the yummy candies they received. Of course, as a parent it's my right to go through their bags and take out my absolute favorite... Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

After Halloween is over and we're all candied out we are stuck with a tremendous amount of candy and no idea what to do with it. We can sit around eating it for the next six months OR I can make a few delicious desserts with them. But where do I find the inspiration and recipes for said desserts? Well, that's where Hershey's Halloween Boo Blvd. comes in!

Hershey's Halloween Boo Blvd. in a wonderful online resource that you can visit to find Halloween recipes, crafts, share your experiences, and learn tips & tricks to have a super fun, and frightful Halloween! We were recently sent some yummy Hershey's Halloween candy to try out so I decided to go see what kind of Halloween recipes I could find. Here are two of my favorites:
