ARM & HAMMER® Spin brush® My Way! ™ GIVEAWAY. Love those clean chompers!

update ******** winner ********* "The Sunshyn" thanks all xo

Art reigns supreme in this house. We do a ton of crafts and art type lessons each month. My kids love it all but one of the favorite activities involves glue or stickers lately and when I was offered to review the new ARM & HAMMER® Spin brush® My Way! ™ for Boys and the Orajel ® Kids My Way™ Toothpaste I knew they would love it because the toothbrush and paste comes with great decal stickers for the child to personalize their toothbrush and toothpaste tube. The great thing is there was a ton of sticker decals and they had fun using the decals later in other projects. I asked them to make the toothbrush look like they designed it. I guessed who made each brush and they were busy being little artists with the stickers.

We talked about oral health while we did this project together. It was a great 10-15 minute time frame to teach and have fun. The boys loved having their own toothpaste that was personalized and fun. I have to disclose that they did not love the taste of the toothpaste as much as their usual brand but they are still using it.

I would give these kits to my kids when it was time for a new toothpaste or brush because it got them jazzed about brushing their teeth. I think any type of excitement around oral health is ace for kids in the 4- 11-age bracket. I think they would make great additions to Easter baskets and holiday stockings. They are simple kits that are both fun and healthy.

Euro Tote Review {5 products for three years in 1 system}


OK. So I am a desperate mother. 
I have a colicky baby and any carrier or wrap on the market I am game to try out for wee Scout!
Enter the Lilliebaby Euro Tote

The thing is like getting Willy Wonka's Golden Ticket. 
This carrier is quite amazing. 
The EuroTote isn't just a bag... it has five functions in one product:

Cradle Carrier- (up to 25 lb)
Bunting Bag- adjusts to baby's size
Stroller Bag- ideal for jogging or strolling
Play Blanket - a clean place to play, anywhere
Travel Bedding - a nest of familiarity and security

OK. The magic ticket for me is the cradle carrier function of the tote. 

Scout nestles in and loves the warm little nest it makes him. I think it has been the only product that has made the colic go away for us here in the mad house. We nestle him into it and the straps buckle around him and he settles down almost immediately. The tote has been a lifesaver for me. It is a nice quality product and the versatility is really ingenious. If I could only have three baby gear items it would be in the mix for this baby of mine. We use it every day and will recommend it to friends. My husband raves about this product too! He LOVES the carrier function and how simple it is to carry Scout upstairs and downstairs without waking the wee one. We love the Euro Tote!

But guess what? You can win one here! today!
Just leave a comment to win!
