Have some old-fashioned fun with board games from Wonder Forge (#giveaway)

Winter has arrived here in Ottawa, and after 3 days of cold I am almost ready to dig out some games that I have set aside for Christmas just to give us something new and fun to do! My friends at a Wonder Forge sent a board game for each of my daughters that I know they’ll love. I love board games because they can teach so many things while you play, and the really fun board games inspire all sorts of imaginative play and ‘house rules’ that really keep things interesting!   My Read more […]

Give your Canadian girl a Canadian doll from Maplelea Girls (#giveaway)

I can never predict which doll will become a favourite in our house. Ashlyn has had her special doll, Flower Baby, since she was 2. Flower Baby is a snuggly baby with a plastic head, which is great for playing Mommy. However, Ashlyn is starting to play in more mature ways now, acting out social situations and trying out new ways to behave, and she wants a doll that is more like her to play with: a young girl, not a baby or a grown up. I can’t wait to surprise her with a Maplelea Girls doll on Read more […]

Lalaloopsy Tinies are full sized fun

It’s funny how the older my daughters get, the smaller their toys are. The magical world of Lalaloopsy™ is now tinier – and cuter! – than ever with Lalaloopsy Tinies™. Featuring over 100 unique Lalaloopsy™ characters and pets, they come in sets of 10 and each pack has a surprise character to add to the fun. These cuties would make a great stocking stuffer! Add to the fun with Lalaloopsy Tinies™ Houses. These tiny houses come with an exclusive Lalaloopsy Tinies™ character and Read more […]

Sphero Ollie (#giveaway)

When I was approached about including the Sphero Ollie, the robot that is controlled by an app for your Apple or Android device, in my Holiday Gift Guide, I did not hesitate to say yes! Oh, not for my daughters, or even for me. This little guy will be wrapped and under the tree for my husband (now is the real test of if he reads my blog, isn’t it!). A mere 9.96″ x 4.84″ x 4.29″ inches and 1.3 pounds, Ollie is going to be hours of fun for our whole family because there is no way that the girls Read more […]

Libre Tea makes any moment a tea moment (#giveaway)

Sometimes I work with a company that has such a great product, I can’t wait to work with them again. Libre Tea is definitely one of those companies! Yes, I did just work with Libre Tea in September, but as soon as my Starburst Tea Glass arrived, my husband tried to take it to his work on me! Since I wasn’t really interested in sharing (an afternoon tea has become a necessity for me to function these days), Libre Tea was gracious enough to send my husband a tea glass of his own. This time, we Read more […]
