Men's Costume Review

We are planning on having a big Halloween Party for the first time this year, I have already started planning for it. Halloween is my favorite holiday, I love the Fall air and seeing everybody's costume choices! I usually hand make Spank's costumes, but I will have to see what he decides for this year. I know the hardest person to get into a costume in our family will hands down be my husband. He isn't one for dressing up, but I told him its mandatory this year and he seems to be okay with it.
When I was offered the chance to do a review for Anytime Costumes for Men, I jumped at this opportunity! My hubby has a goofy personality, so I thought the Green Crayon Costume pictured would be perfect for him! When we received it, I had him try it on and we are going to obviously find him a shirt and such to go underneath, because short sleeves just didn't work! He liked the fit of the costume and I thought it was a good fit. The boys loved it, they were excited to see Daddy dressed up as a crayon, and a green one(Spank's favorite).
This Crayola Crayon costume comes in a couple different colors, as well as sizes. It works great for men and women alike, they do have a skirt style in the women's section if you and your guy wanted to go matching for Halloween. If you do end up with the crayon costume or any of their Poly-Foam costumes, I highly recommend stuffing the hat areas so they stand upward, otherwise they are just floppy and don't create the right look. Anytime Costumes has a great selection of men, women and children's costumes in any style you are looking for! Be sure to get a head start on Halloween, cause the closer it gets the more sizes and styles will sell out.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Children's Claritin & Madagascar 3 Party!!

Being a Claritin Crew Mom, we had the opportunity to throw a Madagascar Themed Party to get everyone Pumped up about the latest Madagascar coming to theaters, plus it gave us mommies a chance to talk about our little ones allergies and how Claritin could help with that!

We didn't have as much of a turn out as we'd expected, but the kids still had a blast and Parents received their samples and coupons, so I think everyone was happy when it was over with!

When people arrived we have Madagascar playing and they sat and watched that for a bit, then decided to go play and run around while the adults talked. The kids came back and wanted to watch Madagascar 2(I think this was Everyone's favorite of the two). We had some popcorn and punch and then decided to do some activities and color some coloring pages. We let the kids decorate some little cloth bags with fabric markers to take all their goodies and samples home in.

We had another little snack of Melman's Circus Peanuts and then the kids wanted to play pin the tail on Alex the Lion, the adults even joined in on this one! Some dared to walk the tight rope after that, while others sat back and cheered them on! We made Afro Circus Marty masks and the kids LOVED them! They also had the choice to make a Alex the Lion mask, but I think everyone was excited about the colorful Afro wearing zebra in the upcoming film, Madagascar 3.

They finished up the movie and took home their Goody Bags with stickers, circus animal puzzles, candy and some madagascar 3 Gummies. I gave their samples to their Parents, as some were too young and thought it was Candy and didn't want them getting into it.

If you are interested in learning more about Children's or Adult's Claritin or for coupons or Can't wait to see Madagascar 3, you can go watch the trailer again until you can rush to theaters to see the whole thing! I know we can't wait until June 8th!

Poofin Review & Giveaway

My kids are obsessed with anything fluffy and cuddly! Put a pillow on the floor and they will both flock to it like seagulls on a crumb. So when we received our Poofin they fought over it til I had to step in and break it up!
Poofin is a seriously soft plush star pillow type toy that comes with interchangeable soft picture charms to represent all the great things in your child's life that makes him or her unique.
I love this idea! Spank is only 4, but he is starting to become an independent young man, making his own choices of what he likes and dislikes. No, I'm not talking about strained peas type choices but more what sports he likes and music, movies and activities. It really is bittersweet seeing him grow, but I like that Poofin allows children to choose from many different picture charms and collect the different things they like inside the "belly" of the star!
They have many different charms to choose from whether you have a sporty child, a little chef, or a girly girl on your hands. They even have customizable charms for your kids trips away from home this Summer, to help with that homesick feeling. You could even customize a charm for your child's special day, whether it be birthday, preschool or middle school Graduation or other various events.
The steps to getting started are simple!
1. Choose a Poofin- stars come in Bright Red, Blue or Pink!
2. Pick out your charms for inside from the great selection here or design your own charm.
3. Share them with your friends & family!

Spank has had a blast showing his Poofin off to everyone! He chose the Blue poofin and inside has his Skateboard, Bowling and Popcorn charms. He loves skateboarding and bowling, and if you didn't read my post on his Halloween costume a couple years back to know about his absolute LOVE of Popcorn, well, he LOVES it! He will tell you that too when you ask him about his charms, its quite cute. We plan on adding a few Charms to his collection in the coming months, he likes getting on the computer and browsing them. So far he has the Taco, penguin and he wants to get one of a runner because he is a runner. I may have to design one for him with his medals from his races. I think he'd enjoy that!

This would make a TERRIFIC gift for any Older child, I think the older they get it gets a bit harder to shop for some, this would be perfect for those children.

To Buy: To purchase a Poofin, visit the Poofin Store to get started!

To Win: One Lucky Reader will win a Poofin and two charms of their choosing! To enter follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter form below.

Potty Cover Review & Giveaway

Going potty in public is something that makes my skin crawl sometimes. Thinking of all the germs that linger on those toilets and everywhere in those bathrooms-yuck! Having boys does make it somewhat easier as majority of the time Spank only has to pee, which he can stand for not having to touch anything! There are those moments when he needs to do some other business when we are out and about and I feel like I need to carry around toilet cleaner and a total cleaning kit before I can let my child sit on the toilet, then rush home afterwards to shower!
We recently received PottyCover to try out and it has helped this momma(with a public bathroom phobia) out a Ton! PottyCover is a disposable toilet seat cover for children. I LOVE that it covers the sides and front of the toilet too, cause if your child is like most they hold on to the edges! What I love even more is that it is made of a soft non-woven fabric on top, but coated with a layer of plastic on the bottom, making it waterproof. So if you are in a rush and cant wipe the seat down before hand and it happens to be a bit wet it won't soak through. That little flap up front also helps protect your child's legs or clothing from touching the icky germs on the toilet!
After you're done using it just dispose of it in the trash can, pretty simple! Each PottyCover comes individually wrapped and in a smaller package, so its small enough to fit into your purse,diaper bag or anywhere, but Large enough to cover all those germs!

I would recommend PottyCover to any moms, dads or grandparents who don't like the thought of germs in public restrooms, but have to face them due to little ones!

Buy It: To purchase PottyCovers, you can go here to find a retailer closest to you. They are about $5.99 for a 6 pk.

Win It: One lucky reader will win a 6pk of PottyCovers for themself to try out! To enter follow directions on the Rafflecopter form below.
