VTech Alternative Easter Basket Ideas and Giveaway

“The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech.”

Easter is only days away, are you ready? VTech has some alternative Easter basket ideas and a giveaway to help you celebrate this spring holiday!

Did you know that VTech consults with a panel of experts on the development of its learning products? VTech supports you as your child continues to grow and reach new developmental milestones by offering a variety of age-appropriate toys. Here are the VTech products we reviewed:

InnoTab®Doc McStuffins Software Cartridge (Ages 4-7 years; MSRP: $24.99)

- Learn reading, vocabulary, observation, logic, memory, math, visual skills, creativity, healthy living and more! The Doc is in!

- Read a story about Lambie and Doc in an e-book, color in Doc’s Big Book of Boo-Boos and play games with Doc and her friends.

Our Review: This was great for all three of our younger children. Considering the fact they all love animals and we just got our own lamb, it was very cute and timely! Our children love their InnoTab 3S so I don’t think we could go wrong in any cartridge at this point!

VTech Innotab 3S Sofia the First

InnoTab Sofia the First Software Cartridge (Ages 3-6 years; MSRP: $24.99)

- Seven learning games and two creative activities teach counting, colors, patterns, problem solving and more! Join Sofia on this wild and thrilling day!

- Learn how Sofia becomes a princess in Story Mode with the interactive e-book. Take pictures with favorite characters and scenes (camera activity compatible with any InnoTab® system with a camera).

Our Review: Our eight year old daughter loves princesses so Princess Sofia was perfect for her. Even though it is geared towards younger children she enjoyed playing the activities. Our younger boys benefited from the educational activities as well as had fun in the process.

Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Vehicles (Ages 1-5 years; MSRP: $7.99)

- These electronic play vehicles are perfectly sized for little hands and entertain children with a light-up button that activates music and sounds.

- Little ones will also learn about different letters and vehicle names through pretend play.

Our Review: Our three year old loved his VTech bulldozer. Everything about it. If he couldn’t find it, he was asking where it was and the hunt was on! We’ll see how long it lasts. Parents may not like the sounds it makes though!

FFR Vtech Easter Basket Collage_

Switch & Go Dinos®Turbo Assortment (Ages 3-8 years; MSRP: $9.99)

- Kids can rev up the action with flywheels that let the dinos race and roar across the floor. Each dino also emits realistic vehicle and dinosaur sounds and phrases that teach fun facts about each dino.

- The range features six new dinos, including Dart the Triceratops, Zipp the T-Rex, Spur the Stegosaurus, Fray the Ankylosaurus, Cruz the Spinosaurus and Spinner the Stygimoloch.

Our Review: Our six year old really liked this product. I am not sure if he took it apart at all yet but he has been playing with it and taking really good care of it, as is characteristic of him and his belongings. We haven’t had it long enough to see how long it will last long term but so far so good.

Alcott Adventures Inflatable Pool for Pets & Giveaway #DogsLoveAdventure

FFR image for posts

The weather is s-l-o-w-l-y warming up here in the Chicagoland area. It’s actually suppose to be 60 degrees today! Yesterday we were outside as a family hanging out, doing a bit of yard work but mostly just enjoying watching the animals and being together. So much for productivity in the work department, eh? We were all on one of the hay racks and I saw Padfoot just sitting in the backyard watching us. That’s when I suggested that he really should be with us while we were outside. B voiced her concerns over Padfoot getting her goats but I assured her he’d stay by us. How did I know that? I didn’t for sure but felt pretty confident he’d be content to play, be petted and hang out with us. And I was right. He chased the ball for the children. He took a run with B and generally sniffed around marking his territory.

FFR Padfoot Alcott inflatable pool

Padfoot is half Newfoundland, a breed of dog bred for water rescue in icy water, so he has triple layer of skin to protect him from the cold. This means in the summer time he really minds the heat. He needs lots of water, shade and to be cooled off, if he’ll let us. He’s not a fan of the water hose unless it is to drink from it. We’ve never taken him swimming, though we want to, so I thought reviewing an inflatable pool for pets would be a wonderful relief to Padfoot during the hot summer months. I also purchased the cooling bandana as well, just to try it out and try to keep “pup” cool this summer.

I was very thankful the weather was suppose to be warm today because I had been putting off messing with water hoses and cold water during freezing temperatures, especially since we’ve been sick with this horrible chest cold for the past two weeks.

Alcott Adventures Inflatable Pool Review

Alcott Adventures Logo

Padfoot actually barked at me when I was finishing blowing up the pool and then was shy about getting into the pool. We had to coax him into it with treats. I don’t think it’s hot enough to warrant him being interested even with his Newfie blood.

I had to blow the pool up by hand (mouth really) because we don’t have a pump and I doubt any store does at this time either. I wasn’t about to waste a beautiful day hunting for a pool pump. The valves had to dry before they stayed shut. Other than those challenges the pool will be a keeper for Padfoot this summer. If he doesn’t use it, the geese will, if he doesn’t burst it before then.

About Alcott Adventures:

  • Alcott offers dogs and their owners a complete line of gear and accessories to turn everyday walks into extraordinary adventures.
  • Alcott reinvented sizes for dogs to make it easy on their humans. Generally speaking, if you buy a medium collar, you’ll also use a medium in all the other Alcott products.

What’s interesting about Alcott’s websites is you can shop Alcott online in two ways: either by category or by adventure. The Alcott store locator is available at: http://alcottadventures.com/apps/store-locator

Carter’s Baby and Kid Up to 50% Off Sale Plus $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

I participated in this program on behalf of Carter’s and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Carter's Spring Coupon

It is hard to think about spring clothing when the temperatures are still in the negatives and I am wearing triple layers, but being optimistic and knowing spring is just around the corner, literally only 20 days away, I did just that this week. I shopped Carter’s Baby and Kid Up to 50% Off Sale, which runs from February 18 through March 4, 2014. So only a few days left! Use Carter’s store locator to find a store near you!

Clothing items from Carter’s spring collection is up to 50% off in store, and the above coupon provides an extra 20% off your in-store purchase of $40 or more. Plus you’ll earn $10 Carter’s Rewards for your next visit just for spending $40 or more. How cool is that? Socks are buy one get one free and we always seem to need socks here at our house!

Carter's Spring Collection Collage_!

Carter’s Baby and Kid Up to 50% Off Sale is the perfect time to stock up on great play wear essentials or church clothing, which was my goal for our little boys. It’s sad because our little boys are the only ones I could shop for because our youngest daughter is too big for the girls clothing. Everyone is growing up! For those of you who still have little girls and babies Carter’s spring collection features adorable items for them too, including graphic tees, polos, woven shirts, shorts, cardigans, tunics & leggings and cotton dresses!

To get started on your spring wish list, take a look at Carter’s Spring into Pink collection for girls and Little Mate collection for boys. Both collections are very cute!

TopCashback.com Plus $500 PayPal Cash Giveaway

This is a sponsored campaign with Mums the Word Network and TopCashback.com. All opinions are my own.

I had never heard of TopCashback.com until recently. It is a rebates site aimed to save consumers in the U.S. and Canada money on their online shopping. They give all the commission rates back to the consumer and their site membership is completely free to use and has a no-fee cash out policy. No minimum threshold on payouts either. Gotta love that.

When you visit a site referred by TopCashback, TopCashback receives a referral commission rate traffic and sales they drive to a store’s website. This is where they do not keep any money but give it back to you.

Goat Milk Soap Giveaway

Most of you are probably aware that our second oldest daughter B (almost 15!) makes goat milk soap (read more here and here). We are anxiously awaiting for our goats to give birth in April or May so we can have our own supply of goat milk. Since last summer we have struggled to find a local source, but finally the farm we bought goat milk from last February started their kidding season and we have goat milk again!

FFR Goat Milk Soap Baby

FFR Goat Milk Soap Humming Bird

We also have a mold of mama goat and baby, a cow and a baby and a horse. Depending on availability, we will try to offer you a choice. ;)


About Goat Milk Soap

Goat milk soap is one of the most moisturizing soaps around. Our soap is all natural, handmade by our daughter using goat milk and 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils. We also leave some unscented for those with sensitivities. Other ingredients include: organic palm oil, organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter and lye (which is saponified.)

Enter the goat milk soap giveaway below for your chance to win!

We want to offer two of you a chance to win five bars of goat milk soap! ($30-35 Value!). These will be our medium to large bars or a mix of the two. We are running this giveaway longer as it takes the soap four weeks to cure and she is making a new batch so these will be FRESH off the assembly line so to speak.
