Crayola Holiday gifts-Review and GIVEAWAY

Crayola has many products out there this Holiday season for children of all ages that will spark their imagination. The first product I would like to discuss is the Color Me A Song. The Color Me A Song is reccommended for ages 24 months and up, which is perfect for my 2 year old! She already loves to try to play with her older sister and brothers toys, and this gave her an opportunity to have a "big" kid toy for her.
Here is some information about the Color Me A Song:
•The Crayola Beginnings Color Me A Song lets little ones draw to the beat of their own drum, trumpet, piano or guitar. This portable drawing and music creation station features a pressure-sensitive board that matches a melody to the artist´s pace. Draw fast, and the tempo picks up. Slow down, and so does the music. Four instrument buttons let kids pick their favorite sound. Color Me a Song was named a "Toy of the Year" by FamilyFun magazine and one of American Baby magazine´s picks for "Best Toys of the Year."
Sounds awesome right?! Well, it is! I've found myself tinkering with it.

Next up, is the Crayola Color Explosion Glow Dome. I had never heard of this particular Crayola product, so I was anxious to see what it was all about! The Glow Dome is reccomended for ages 6 and up, which is perfect for my 6 year old. Yay!! This is, by far, one of the neatest products I've ever seen! Kids can create their own artwork, put it in the color explosion glow dome and watch it as it spins around and glows! It has a two-layered dome of light and kids can control the motion. They can make it slow, medium, or warp speed to make their artwork into wild animations.
This is sure to be a much loved Christmas present for your child or someone you know.

Last, but not least, is the Crayola Glow Station. Now this one, I had heard of, but have not had one of my kids before now. The Glow station is a large canvas that glows in the dark. The glow station comes with a light wand in which the children can draw free hand or with provided stencils and textured sheets to create more realistic drawings. You can even attach a diamond shaped tip to the wand to create starbursts on the canvas. The images disappear after awhile or they can be erased which provide hours upon hours of fun, creative play for children.
This product is also reccomended for children ages 6 and up.

All three of these products were a huge hit in my house and I would reccomend any of them to anyone who has kids within the age ranges.

Crayola is also having a Give the gift of creativity sweepstakes, where you can enter to win a 7-night Caribbean cruise for a family of 4 on Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. All you have to do to enter is visit and create a Crayola wish list for you child or children. You can choose from fun products like Star Skateboarding, Martian Sleepovers, and Boogie Woogie. Crayola will then recommend an item from their Holiday Gift Guide that corresponds to the wish. You can enter once a day, and an extra entry is also available for those who share the wish list on Facebook.

Now, for the best part! One of my readers will win their very own Crayola Color Explosion Glow Dome! A $29.99 suggested value! Here are the rules to enter the giveaway:

Sprout Baby review and giveaway!!

From their website: We provide a select offering of healthy, eco-conscious products, based on extensive research and recommendations. It’s our opinion that many parents, given enough information and access, would gladly choose products that are as healthy for their children as they are good for the earth; and we don’t think this should be a compromise. We think making healthy choices should be easy, that’s why we have exceptional products that are both healthy and environmentally-friendly. We want to support parents and children, and we do that by making available authentically good products that meet our rigorous standards, are tested and approved by parents and foster the growth and development of your children while also treading lightly on the planet. It’s a tall order, and we are up for the challenge.

Sprout baby has many products for moms-to-be, new moms, babies. Sproutbaby also has products for home care, like laundry, dishwashing, and cleaning products
One of the products that I would like to try is the BabyGanics Essentials Kit which includes 32oz All Purpose Cleaner, Air Freshener, Foaming Dish and Bottle Soap, Foaming Hand Sanitizer (50ml) and BONUS All Purpose Cleaner Wipes (25ct) which is pictured below.

The first item we were sent to review was the Nature BabyCare Diapers. My daughter is in a size 4(which she should be pottytrained, but that's a whole other post!)
From their site: Nature Babycare Diapers are the first award winning Eco-Friendly high-performance disposable diapers based on new green technology.These diapers are breathable and chlorine-free and made with natural based material.

I personally give these diapers a thumbs up! They fit comfortably, don't irritate my babies bottom, and best of all they don't leak! I would definetly use them again!

The next product we reviewed were the Bum Boosa™ Bamboo Baby Wipes 80 count. The wipes are made from renewable bamboo, are soft, absorbent and naturally scented with lavender and sweet orange essential oils. The Bum Boosa wipes smell great! They don't tear while using them, which is a huge plus for me! I can't stand when a wipe tears and, well, you know what happens when the wipe tears during diaper changes!

Now for the best part!! Sproutbaby is giving one of my readers a $25 gift certificate to use on anything in their store!! They are also giving you 15% off
your order by using the code SBBL105. And from now until December 15th, every order you place gives you an entry in their $2500 cash giveaway!! Wow!! Wouldn't that be wonderful! This is in celebration of their 1st birthday!
