CordaRoy’s Beanbag Bed Review

Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

If you had to choose an area of your home as your favorite, which room would it be? When I typed that question, I thought I had my favorite room in mind but as I thought about it, I have more than one favorite. I was going to say my bedroom because I spend a lot of time there sleeping and just getting away from the noise of our busy household, but as I thought more about it, I realized how much I like our Kitchen and dining room area too. We spend a lot of time in these two rooms preparing and eating meals, doing school work and just living, being together.

What is essential to your favorite room? A comfy place to sit and relax, right? Well, I have a product that fits those qualities! It’s CordaRoy’s Beanbag bed and chair combo.

About CordaRoy’s

CordaRoy’s was recently featured on ABC’s popular show called Shark Tank. The owner of CordaRoy’s, Byron Young, was able to secure a deal with one of the sharks, Lori Greiner, who has her own show on QVC-TV.

CordaRoy’s is a unique company in that it offers a beanbag chair that is also a bed. The beanbags come in a variety of sizes: Kids Sleeper, Full Sleeper, Queen Sleeper, King Sleeper and King Sleeper Sofa. The other unique quality is CordaRoy’s beanbag cover. It’s made of quality corduroy that not only comes in a lot of cool colors but it is also removable making it easy to clean – and yes, it is machine washable! Prices range from $129-$599 for the beanbag sleepers. CordaRoy’s also sells extra covers, pet beds and footstools.


CordaRoy’s Beanbag Bed

To say we were excited to receive a CordaRoy’s full size beanbag bed to review is an understatement! I actually made my daughter wait to open the box until I was done work and ready to take photos.

CordaRoy’s beanbag bed arrived in a fairly small box that looked like this:

There is a special way to unpack the box so we had previewed this unpacking video supplied by CordaRoy’s. I share it just in case you are interested in it:

Inside we found a neatly packaged cover, instructions and guarantee on top of the vacuum packed beanbag bed.

My daughters unpacked the bed like pros and got it into it’s slate chenille cover (blue is my daughter B’s favorite color!). Here she is with our youngest, sorry the photo is blurry, I have an issue with my family remaining still while snapping photos!

And yes, she gave me permission to post this last photo, as it shows her utter delight in her new CordaRoy’s beanbag bed! :)

B’s CordaRoy’s Beanbag Bed Review

B says the beanbag chair is the perfect size for her to curl up alone or to share with one of her teen sisters or with two younger siblings. She says if she puts it at the right angle it makes a perfect throne! She thoroughly enjoys her new chair for reading and doing her school work. She says it is fairly easy to unpack into a bed at night.

B thinks her beanbag bed is lovely and squishable like arms hugging her. It makes a lovely nest for sleeping. It stays warm when she gets up. For example, she got up and was gone for an hour and a half to pick veggies for our CSA boxes and to milk Miss Moo and her bed was still warm when she returned to it after her shower! She says it is very soft and that she loves it. As she stated above about the chair, she says the beanbag bed is fairly easy to pack up into the beanbag chair.

One of our sons wants to steel B’s new beanbag bed and the rest of the children really, really like it! I still need to take a few moments to try out her beanbag chair and her beanbag bed, I just haven’t yet. I’m going to have to do it while she’s out milking because then I’ll know it’s vacant!

Kids II Taggies Bedding and Bouncer

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Kids II. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Kids II Taggies Bedding Review

My four month old daughter LOVES touching and feeling different textures.  The Taggies Owl Crib Bedding Collection arrived at a perfect time for her to really explore.  The 4 Piece Crib Set contains a brightly colored polka dot crib sheet, a matching diaper stacker with an owl perched on top, an adorable owl and polka dot textured comforter, and a coordinating cribskirt.

Bedding3

When I put the polka dotted sheet in the crib and laid my daughter on her tummy on it, she was enthralled!

Bedding1

She probably stared at all of the dots for ten minutes straight.  I don’t cover her up in her bed, so I use the comforter for tummy time.  She had a ball, touching all of the polka dots, and looking at the whimsical owls.  Her favorite part of the comforter were all of the “Taggies” placed around it.  The tags are satin-like and of all different colors.

Bedding2

The Taggies Owl Comforter has now become her new favorite tummy time spot!  I loved how soft the materials were and that it is machine washable.  The colors are so bright, yet very soothing at the same time.  It is a perfect bedding set for any little girl.  My daughter sure enjoys it!

Bedding4

The Taggies Owl Crib Bedding Collection can be purchased at Buy Buy Baby.


Taggies Soft ‘N Snug Bouncer Review

My daughter is one of those babies that likes to be held at all times.  It’s very cute at times, but not when I want to get something accomplished!  I was very anxious to try the Taggies Soft ‘N Snug Bouncer.  First of all, it was super easy to put together, it took less than five minutes.  The only tool required is a screwdriver to put the batteries in.

Bouncer1

This bouncer is very unique in that it has two positions so it can either be upright or reclined.  This is great if you wanted to use it for when your baby takes naps.

Bouncer3

It features hanging plush animal toys, and a Peek-A-Boo blanket.  The bouncer has a removable headrest and a sunshade, too.  I love that it has music and vibration, and that you can use them singly or simultaneously.  When I put my daughter in it, she loved it right away.  I think she felt very secure.  She loved batting at the hanging toys and feeling all of the “Taggies” all around the bouncer.  Her favorite, though, was the Peek-A-Boo blanket.  She loved snuggling it and looking at all of the brightly colored tags.  She didn’t care too much for the vibrations, but she enjoyed listening to the music.

Bouncer2

The bouncer is very lightweight, yet sturdy.  It is one of the nicer ones I have seen.  I would highly recommend the Taggies Soft ‘N Snug Bouncer.  It has so many great features and my daughter loves it!

The Taggies Soft ‘N Snug Bouncer can be purchased at Babies ‘R Us

Halo SleepSack

Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

Having the opportunity to try the Halo SleepSack could not have come at a better time.  Up until about a week ago, my three month old daughter could not fall asleep without being swaddled.  Last week, though, she started kicking off the thin blanket I had swaddled her in and started waking up because she was cold.  She also rolls a lot in her sleep, so the swaddle would come undone.  The Halo SleepSack became my lifesaver!

Halo1

The Halo SleepSack is basically a wearable blanket.  It has no sleeves, so it can easily be worn over your baby’s sleepwear comfortably.  The arm holes are the perfect size, not too snug and not too large.  The SleepSack comes in a variety of sizes and styles.  My daughter will definitely be able to wear the size Small for a very long time.  It’s roomy enough for her to still kick and move her body without it affecting her sleep.  My favorite feature of the Halo SleepSack is that it has an inverted zipper.  You can only appreciate this feature if you are lucky enough to change a diaper in the middle of the night!  Since it zips from the top down, you only have to unzip part way to change a diaper without completely disrupting your baby’s sleep.  The material is lightweight so your baby will not overheat, and the prints are adorable!  The best part is that it is machine washable.  I plan on buying another one so I have a spare when this one is in the wash.

Halo2

I absolutely love the Halo SleepSack.  I use it as a “sleeping cue” for my daughter.  When I put it on her she knows naptime or bedtime is approaching.

Halo3

Halo Innovations’ mission is to help babies sleep safely.  They have definitely achieved this goal with the SleepSack.  Go to their website to see a variety of products they offer for the many different sleep stages of a baby.  They also have some great tips on safe sleep habits for your child.  Remember “Back is Best” when putting your baby to sleep!

Go-Go Blanket

Do you ever wish you could keep your baby or toddler warm in the car or stroller without the need of a coat?  Here’s the solution, the Go-Go Blanket.  It is a soft, cuddly, fleece blanket that fits easily over car seat and stroller straps.  It has oversized sleeves which keep the blanket in place while still alowing your child to move their arms.  This product is designed for infants and children through size 5.  Once your child is securely strapped into their car seat or stroller simply place their arms in the sleeves and tuck in the sides of the blanket.  That’s it!  The blanket stays on the child and they can still use their arms to play, stretch, eat, drink, and relax.

GoGoBlanket1

I tried the Go-Go Blanket with my three year old son.  He is a big blanket lover so he was overly excited to try it out!  I have read many articles about child safety in the wintertime and how unsafe it is for children to wear winter coats in a car seat.  I always feel bad putting my son in the car without a coat since it is so cold out.  With the Go-Go Blanket he stays nice and warm in the car!  He loved that it covered his legs and his arms and he thought the lambs were silly looking.  The arms were a little long so we just rolled the sleeves.  Once we arrived at our destination, it was super easy to remove and put his coat back on.  I loved it!  We also used it when we went on our afternoon walk.  Normally I put a blanket over him and it ends up falling and sometimes even lands on the ground and gets all dirty.  With the Go-Go Blanket it is impossible for it to fall off and he stayed warm the entire time!  My son loved wearing it so much he even asked if he could wear it to sleep.

GoGoBlanket2

This product is so simple, yet so genius.  I don’t know how I lived without it before.  It is so easy to use, extremely soft, follows safety regulations, and most importantly, machine washable.  These would make great gifts!  For more information and to see all of the pattern options go to their website
www.gogoblanket.com and be sure to visit them on Facebook and Twitter.

Sleep Number Review #sleepnumberm9

I had never heard of Sleep Number before until I received an opportunity from Smiley360. We have been slowly trying to replace older mattresses in our house, especially now that the children are getting older too. I was excited to check out Sleep Number beds.

Last night Peanut and I went out to the closest Sleep Number store to check it out.

Sleep Number Review

Our local Sleep Number store had a rather small show room, but very bright, clean and neat. The gentleman working the store was very courteous and helpful. He greeted us and asked how he could help us upon entering. Then after I told him why we were there he gave us a demonstration of the C3 mattress, which was very cool. Peanut and I loved the remote and the fact that two people on the same bed could adjust their mattress to their own comfort level. There was a complimenting video that went with the demonstration, however, his computer was not working. He didn’t want us to hold that against him so we didn’t. ;) Oh and before the demonstration the sales rep even put a sheet of tissue over the pillows our heads would touch while we laid on the mattress.

I’d definitely consider purchasing from Sleep Number under the right circumstances money-wise. If money were no object, then I would have purchased tonight and had items delivered!

The great thing about Sleep Number they have several different series of mattresses to choose from and with those choices are another variety of choices to help individuals get a good night’s sleep. From air to memory foam and elevation their beds are sure to appeal to a broad range of people.

They also carry custom comforters, pillows, bedding and mattress covers.

NEW Sleep Number Mattresses

Sleep Number has two new mattresses M7 and M9. Unfortunately our little store only had the M7. Loved it’s soft texture better than the polyester. Here are a few tidbits about the M9:

• It’s a memory foam mattress

• 13-inch bed offers the highest memory foam profile

• Exclusive SLEEP NUMBER® DualAir technology

• 5-inches of LuxFit™ foam softly cushions pressure points and features a breathable air-flow design

• Temperature balancing sleep surface is designed to absorb excess heat that can disrupt sleep

• Luxuriously soft fabric made from natural fibers

• 2 wireless, digital remotes, plus Full-Fill and Memory features

Sounds comfy, eh? I can attest to the comfort of a memory foam mattress as that is the kind of mattress we have now and we love it!


Semi-Annual Sleep Number SALE!

Save $500, 0% financing for 18 months (restrictions apply). See www.SleepNumber.com for complete details.

I received a gift item in return for this post as a member of the Smiley360 blogger program. All opinions are my own.

Zoobies Review

What will they think of next!

Zoobies

Zoobies are a stuffed animal,

 

 

that turns into a pillow,

THEN can turn into a blanket!

Hooray! Less things to bring in the car for trips! And there is a lion.. a tiger… and a bear (OH MY!) to choose from, in addition to 27 total Zoobie Pet Blankets to choose from!  Zoobies also carries – Book Buddies, Duffle Dogs, Storytime Pals, Blankie Babies, and Slumber Pets.

Zoobies Review

We welcomed Jafaru the Giraffe join our home last week and he has been very loved since the moment he popped out of the box. Greatest feature ever is the blanket can zip off Jafaru to clean separately!  To change Jafaru from a stuffed animal to a pillow, just un-velcro the two loops under his belly and to use the blanket unzip the bottom of Jafaru and pull the blanket out. I found folding up the blanket and putting it can in Jafaru is very easy to use and it fits nicely back into a pillow (if you fold it the way the instructions suggest). The blanket is 44 inches by 34 inches unfolded a good size in my book. We also found Jafaru makes a funny hat!

If It’s Free! It’s for Me!

I found a new website!  Watch out, it’s addicting!  It’s called The Freecycle Network. Type in your location and see what people have to “offer” or “want” and they are all free!  You will find almost ANYTHING on here.  I’ve seen used oil, frozen meats, swing sets, baby items, beds, you name it!  You will need an account – if you find and “offer” you’d like you then need to contact the person to set a time / place and go and pick it up!  I’ve seen a few “curb alerts” (a curb alert is people that are putting stuff out on the curb or road) in my area.  This is my kind of bargain shopping!

http://www.freecycle.org

Editor’s Note: Our family has used Free Cycle and have got some pretty nice stuff – our recliner is one of them. We have also got work horses which have come in handy now that we have moved! Lots of neat and useful things have been found on Free Cycle. Beware of daily emails as they will over take your inbox! I finally had to unsubscribe due to the emails and my husband’s request! lol! I had him running out to pick up too many things! ;)

Memory Foam Slippers Review & Giveaway

During the winter and cooler days my feet tend to get cold. Having a nice wooly pair of socks or slippers helps keep them warm, especially on hardwood floors. As you all know, there are many different slippers to choose from and I have tried multiple brands and styles in my life. From ballet slippers to the slip on kind my grandmother wore. My favorite use to be ballet slippers but they were never warm enough. Sure were comfortable though! I had never heard of Memory Foam slippers until I entered a Nature’s Sleep giveaway a few months ago. Then I learned of their slippers and somehow got a chance to review a pair.

Memory Foam Slippers

I always thought Memory Foam was overrated until I won a Memory Foam product (stay tuned for an upcoming post about this product!). Can you say luxurious and comfortable? That’s how I feel about Nature’s Sleep Memory Foam Slippers too.

The slippers are basic in design with a softer sole made of thermoplastic rubber bottom and then the Memory Foam materials – upper/inner sole 80% cotton/20% polyester; lining 100% polyester. When the slippers arrived I was not the first to try them on, my oldest son was and if only I had video taped him! He put them on and said, “Ahhhhh…” in a sigh type voice. Then, of course, the rest of the children had to try them too and every single one of them that tried on the slippers had similar reaction. It was actually a few days before I got to try them out myself because some little person always had them on! As you can see from the photos, they’ve been worn.

Comfortable. Comfortable. Comfortable. Did I say comfortable? Oh yeah, I did! It feels like you are walking on pillows. They are very basic looking but my style goes for comfort more than fashion usually anyways so that does not bother me at all. I would definitely buy these as gifts. They are priced affordably at $25 for the open toe version and $30 for the closed toe version. Plus, both qualify for FREE shipping on Nature’s Sleep website. Please Note: This may only be for regular priced items, not discounted items so please check before you assume. The choice of colors is limited: pink, pale blue and sand. Sizes range from small to x-large. I got size medium and I wear a size 9 shoe.

Nature’s Sleep also offers quality memory foam mattresses, as well as pillows at their online store at www.Nature’sSleep.com

Be sure to enter the giveaway below to win your own pair of Memory Foam slippers! If you can’t wait, shop Now 50% off BEARS50 at Nature’s Sleep.

Good luck!

A couple of weeks ago I think I had a Thrifty Thursday post go live without photos, so here are the photos of the used Pottery Barn quilts I bought for $10 each:

I think they are cute and will serve my younger boys well.

Boys Bedding – Thrifty Thursday

When we moved and I knew were eventually going to have all four boys in one bedroom (so far the two little boys are content to stay with mommy and daddy!) I hunted down some new bedding for them since theirs was pretty worn out due to all the washing when they were younger. I thought it would be nice for them to have something nice for their new room. They were excited and found something they each liked and to their own particular taste. That was hard by the way because they would keep changing their minds. I really had to keep their vision narrowed down so we could actually get them.

For the two little boys, we went a different route when an ad came up on our homeschool yahoo group. A member in our area was selling two matching Pottery Barn quilts for $10 a piece. They are cute with sale boats on them and I thought they were perfect (without even seeing them!) I had purchased some Breyer horses from the same lady last Christmas for one of our younger daughters, so I trusted her when she said they were in great shape and they are! Take a look…
