Dead Soxy has Dead Gorgeous No Show Socks

Posted on July 27, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

We love Dead Soxy, in our home.  The socks are magnificent, and long lasting.  I’ve washed them at least a dozen times, and they are still form fitting.  They last and last.  I can’t get over how well they are maintained.

My 7 year old now won’t wear anything but Dead Soxy.  He loves his no shows, can’t stand socks that go up to his knees.  Good thing that Dead Soxy can handle his feet.  With school starting back up, these are the perfect socks for Gym Class, or everyday class.

My daughter is in her 3rd year of college, and she loves Dead Soxy, as well.  She just snatched my last two pairs up yesterday.  She says they are so comfortable, and wash up well.

Wanna hear something great?  If you live in the USA, you can get FREE SHIPPING on your socks.  And, the no shows are 3 for $35.  That’s an amazing price.  We buy them all the time, because even the local store doesn’t have that great of a deal.

Some Fun Facts about Dead Soxy:

They are no slip:  You will not fall when you are wearing them.

They are no Shrink:  Seriously though, they will not shrink, I can attest to that!

No Fade:  They hold their color, like I’ve never seen before.

They are Versatile:  You can wear them with any shoes.

Lastly, they are Comfortable:  If they weren’t, I wouldn’t own so many.

Bug Lab For Kids

Posted on June 27, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews

Bug Lab For Kids is a great collection of loads of fun activities for kids.  My son, age 7, loves this book.  He is so taken by it.  He loves to work on the labs, together.  You can collect and interact with bugs the right way, with this book.

The Bug Lab For Kids has taught the two of us so much.  From how to catch bugs, to how to pin them.  It’s a family-friendly activity book, and gives us something to do together.  He’s so into the electronics, so when I get home from work, I take him outside, and we work on catching some bugs.  He always takes the book with him.  Hopefully he will remember these activities when he gets older, so he an do them with his kids.

Prepare to cozy up with spiders, centipedes, butterflies, and bees, to name just a few! In Bug Lab for Kids, Mississippi State University associate professor, extension entomologist (bug expert), and educator John W. Guyton shares his knowledge and excitement about all things beautiful, creepy, and crawly. Every chapter is bursting with photos, illustrations, fascinating facts and fun activities–including experiments, hunt-and-catch and citizen science assignments, and arts and crafts projects–that teach kids about bugs’ physical characteristics, behavior, and how they affect agriculture, health, and water quality. Bug Lab for Kids also includes helpful sidebars that explain how to safely handle common insects, and how to easily identify bugs that shouldn’t be held, pet, or touched. Get kids excited about science and the outdoors with Bug Lab for Kids!

Get To Know 20 Crazy Bugs

Posted on June 27, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews

The Amazing World Bugs Book is fantastic.  My wife hates bugs, but I found it intriguing to look at with my 7 year old, son.  My son really got into it, and there’s even 13 glow in the dark bugs that came with the book.  It’s a really great book, to introduce the little ones to a whole other world out there.  My wife never goes outside, unless it’s to head straight to the car, but my son, he loves being outside with me.  So, the Amazing World Bugs is a great book for him.  He even takes it outside, and if he sees a bug from the book, will turn to that page, and go show his mother what he just saw.  In all honesty, only a couple of the bugs are found, where we are.  But, he sure makes it sound good when he runs and tells mom what he saw.

The Amazing World series transports kids to extraordinary places from the bottom of the deepest ocean to faraway galaxies. The third title in the series, Amazing World: Bugs explores the incredible world of 20 strange and magnificent insects, from shimmering glow worms and fireflies, to the extremely odd giraffe bug. Every insect profile includes up-close-and-personal, full-color photos of each amazing creature and tons of fun facts and easily digestible graphics. Kids learn about where each bug lives, what they eat, how they survive predators much, MUCH larger than they are, and so much more! The book comes with 13 reusable glow-in-the-dark plastic stickers.

Need a Bag for the big trip? Look no further than Thirty-One!

Posted on June 11, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews women

I love Thirty-One.  Their bags are perfect.  We are going on an overnight stay, and the In The Clear Tote is the perfect size for mine and my spouse’s clothes.  It’s so big, and spacious.  I could probably even fit my 7 year old’s clothes in it.  There’s even a hidden pocket, in the tote, to keep my pills in.  This is great!This bag, is by far, the best bag I’ve received.  I love Thirty-One, and can’t stress that enough.  In The Clear Tote is going to be the bag of the week.  When I take it with me, to the waterpark, everyone will envy it.  I’ll love telling them where to get their bag at.

I also received The Getaway Tote.  My sister is flying to Myrtle Beach, and this is her bag, for the plane.  It’s the perfect size, to get on flight, and she will be able to put all the necessities in it.  I love this bag, as well.  However, she asked me to use it, so how could I say no?  The size is 14.75″H x 13.75″L x 6″D, which will be great to put her phone, ipad, etc. in.

I also received the Pinch Top Eyeglass Case, which will keep my sunglasses protected from getting scratched.  It even matches my In The Clear Tote.  Isn’t that sweet?  I wear big, funky glasses, and they fit in this wonderful case.  There’s even a zipper on it, to keep  your identification, credit cards, etc.  This really is the top of the line Sunglass/Eyeglass case.

The Crossbody Organizing Tote is wonderful, too.  It’s going in the backseat, with Jacob, Grandma, and myself.  That way I have snacks, drinks, and games at my fingertips.  It’s a 4 hour drive, to where we are going, so this is the perfect bag for the backseat.  Very spacious, but won’t take up much room, in the backseat.

There are different styles for these bags, but the features are all the same.  And, any of them will do for you, what they are going to do for me.  My husband calls me a bag lady.  I never turn down a great bag, and Thirty-One has never disappointed me, when it comes to a great bag.

The Sleep ZZZ Pillow is so Great!

Posted on March 25, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

My little one, Jacob, age 6, loves the Sleep Zzz Pillow. He says he’s comfy all night, and doesn’t wake up until morning. It’s made him sleep through the night, when he couldn’t before. I’m not saying it’s a miracle worker, but it is for us. Now, the only time he gets up is to go potty, and he can’t wait to lay back down, and sleep with the Sleep Zzz Pillow.

Help your child fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer! The Sleep Zzz cuddles your child. It is like being held by a parent to fall asleep. The perfect shape for your little one!

If your child has a sensory problem, they say this is the pillow you have to get. Children love the 3mm pile cuddle fabric. It is super fuzzy!!

There are so many designs to choose from, and you can even have your child’s initials put on it. The Sleep Zzz Pillow will work for your child, like it has for mine. I love it, and we won’t be going back to a regular pillow for a long time.

Aliens Ate My Homework DVD & Digital Movie

Posted on March 22, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

Aliens Ate My Homework was an interesting film, and both of my kids loved it.  Sarah, age 20, thought it was so cute, and Jacob, age 6, believed the entire film.  It’s really cute.  I loved it too.

The cast was great, and consisted of: Jayden Greig, Lauren McNamara, Kirsten Robek, Dan Payne, Alex Zahara, Ty Consiglio, Sean Quan, William Shatner, Tristan Risk.

Unexpected extraterrestrial guests team up with a pair of middle schoolers to prevent the destruction of the planet in Aliens Ate My Homework, coming to DVD, Digital and On Demand on March 6, 2018, from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A humorous and suspenseful intergalactic adventure, Aliens Ate My Homework follows the whimsical members of the Galactic Patrol on the trail of an evil alien criminal hiding out on Earth.

Based on the first book in prolific author Bruce Coville’s globally renowned “Galactic Patrol” series published by Aladdin Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing, Aliens Ate My Homework features the voice of two-time Emmy Award winner William Shatner (“Star Trek”)  and comes from director Sean McNamara (The King’s Daughter). The film also stars Jayden Greig (The Shape of Water), Lauren McNamara (“Summer of Dreams”), Kirsten Robek (The Edge of Seventeen), Dan Payne (Star Trek Beyond, Watchmen), Ty Consiglio (Wonder) and Alex Zahara (“The Man in the High Castle”).

Aliens Ate My Homework is a suspenseful family comedy which follows the adventures of sixth-grader Rod Allbright (Greig) and the extraterrestrial lawmen known as the Galactic Patrol. When a tiny spaceship flies through his window and lands on his science project, Rod and his cousin Elspeth (McNamara) meet a group of friendly aliens, including Phil, a talking plant (voiced by William Shatner). The earthlings quickly join the aliens’ adventurous mission to help defeat an evil alien criminal. After discovering the evil alien is disguised as a human – someone he knows all too well – Rod and Elspeth race to save the world from total planetary disaster.
