Back to School Guide: Just Think Toys BathBlocks- Review and Giveaway

Monday, August 20th, 2012


Bath time is fun time in our house. My kids love playing with their new BathBlocks. They are fantastic because they not only float in the bath they also stick to the walls! Add soap and they become even stickier. My kids counted, balanced, built with, and just plain played with these fun foam blocks. Kaia liked balancing her favorite dolls on these foam blocks to make them float. While Mikey loved playing with the floating helicopters and creating rescue scenarios. These blocks are now a favorite bath toy that comes out every time we take a bath. The bag they come in is awesome it has a mesh bottom so that you can store these bath toys without having to worry about water settling in the bottom and getting gross. BathBlocks are made from bacteria and mildew resistant EVA and contain no PVC or phthalates.

Sometimes the most educational toys are the simplest toys– toys with lots of open-ended possibilities that encourage young minds to think, to create and to explore. The best of these toys provide progressive layers of challenge for children to discover as they grow. At their very best, these toys encourage exploration, reward discovery and empower our children.

BathBlocks bring classic block play into a fun, new, fascinating watery environment. The bathtub is the perfect place to create waterslides, ball runs, floating towns and more. The “sticky” viscosity of water creates a helpful cling between blocks, and the movement, buoyancy and flow of water add an engaging twist to classic block play.

Buy It: Visit the BathBlocks site to purchase your own set of BathBlocks!

Win It:One lucky Familylicious reader will win a set of BathBlocks

I have fallen absolutely head over heels in love with Aveeno’s products. Some of my favorites are the Aveeno Positively Ageless products and the Aveeno Eczema Therapy products. The Positively Ageless products are amazing! I have some face cleansers and creams that cost hundreds of dollars, the Aveeno Positively Ageless products work just as well if not better than those cleansers and creams. I love the way my skin feels afterwards and the way the Aveeno products feel going on they smell great and work wonderfully. The Baby Eczema products work very well. Mikey and Kaia get instant relief for any dry patches they may get.

AVEENO® POSITIVELY AGELESS™

Each product in the POSITIVELY AGELESS™ Complete Starter Regimen is specially formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Natural Shiitake Complex.

Aveeno Positively Ageless

A unique blend of Shiitake and Mannentake mushrooms, Natural Shiitake Complex is also shown to provide anti-oxidant activity to help defend against free radicals that can damage the skin. In a clinical study, when women used the kit as directed, 100% of them showed improvement in their skin in as little as 1 week.

MD Moms Review and Giveaway

Monday, May 2nd, 2011



MD Moms are by far my favorite skin care products for my kiddos. I have been absolutely enamored with the MD Moms skin care line since I first tried them several years ago. I have now gotten a chance to try each of the magnificent products that MD Moms has to offer. I will mention my absolute favorites first the Sunscreen Towlette and the Baby Wipes or Cleansing Towlettes whatever you want to call them they are incredible. The Sunscreen towlettes are unbelievable I know they say they can cover an entire two year old from head to toe with one towlette but I am able to cover Mikey, Kaia, and Myself with one towlette! That’s right all three of us with one towlette! I always have the kids pretty well covered in rash guards and so forth so there is a little less of them to cover but their faces, necks, arms, and legs, get covered as do mine. We have never; not once gotten burned after using these wipes. They go one nice and easy and not greasy they are sweat proof and magnificent. The baby wipes are incredibly truly the BEST SMELLING wipes ever! Honest I never knew how much that meant to me I have always just gotten unscented wipes because of my childrens sensitive skin but after trying MD Moms wipes these are the only wipes I like. I have converted so many. Whenever we go to the park with the Mom’s group the other Mom’s always ask to use our wipes because they are so amazing. They are soft, SMELL AMAZING, and work really well. My sensitive skinned kiddos have never had a reaction. The lotion and body wash are fantastic they work well and my kiddos have super soft skin. The exfoliating cleanser for cradle cap works so well and not just for cradle cap. First yes I had my friend bring her baby over and we used it on her little one’s head. It worked very well and eliminated almost all the cradle cap. It works really well on any dry skin areas for Mommy’s and kiddos too. I use it on my elbows which get pretty dry and also on Mikey’s ankles and wrist which seem to get pretty dry. The diaper cream works great and for all you Cloth Diapering Mama’s like me guess what… you can use this cream. Yes that is right the MD Mom’s Diaper cream does not leave a residue on cloth diapers. Can we all say Hooray! Lastly but not leastly, one of my other very favorite products the liquid baby powder. This product is incredible. First can I just say I am not a fan of Baby powder it gets everywhere always makes a mess on the baby, off the baby and everywhere inbetween. Yes even the basket where I store all our baby products gets covered in baby powder. So what are you to do when you actually need baby powder? Get the incredible MD Moms liquid powder. It smells amazing, goes on smooth and not at all messy and dries soft and powdery. It is mess free and truly incredible. I cannot say enough about these fantastic products!

Shower-Curtains.com Review and Giveaway

Sunday, April 17th, 2011



It’s funny how things change in your life. Years ago I would never have guessed that one of the most exciting things I would get for myself would be a shower mat and bath rug from Shower-Curtains.com. It’s true I have been wanting these things for a while but hadn’t found anything I really liked in any store by me. So when contacted by Shower-Curtains.com I was intrigued and really excited. I immediately started looking through this vast site. There are so many fantastic products I was able to find exactly what I had been looking for (at fantastic prices). I was not disappointed; not only did the items arrive quickly they were perfect. The shower mat and bath rug have added safety and comfort to our bathroom. Our kids ALWAYS stand up in the bath it makes me a little crazy the shower mat makes it safer so they aren’t slipping and sliding everywhere. The Shagi Bath Rug is beautiful and so soft under my toes. I absolutely love it.

Unique pebble design, combining polished and textured pebbles while keeping you safe from slipping in the shower. Suction cups on bottom keep this mat secure. This mat can be custom cut by you to allow for a drain if needed.

Densely woven to give it that shagi look and feel. Matching binding on trim will maintain the shape of the rug after repeated washings. Non-slip SEBS backing. Long chenille yarn adds character. Absorbent cotton, soft on your feet.
Buy It: You can purchase wonderful bath and shower products from Shower-Curtains.com on the Shower-Curtains.com site. Would you like a 15% discount? Use code FAMILYLICIOUS (caps not necessary) to receive 15% off your next purchase.
