Sweepstakes to Celebrate Crayola's 110th Birthday!

Crayola is turning 110 this year and they are having a huge celebration!  I cannot believe they have been around for so long but I remember my favorite box of crayola crayons when I was little and as soon as my son was old enough to color I bought him his very own box as well.

"The original eight crayons are throwing a birthday bash at the new fun-omenal Crayola Experience, the world's only interactive Crayola family attraction."  For your chance to get in on the fun and join them on opening day this May you can enter on their facebook page here.  "Your family could be the first to experience the fun, along with a three-night, all-expenses paid stay. It's an experience your kids will never forget – and neither will you!"

Sounds like an awesome time.  I know my boys would never want to leave.  Make sure to enter daily!

MommyParty with Ridemakerz

I was given a great opportunity to host a MommyParty courtesy of Ridemakerz.  I received the Deluxe Batman sets for the boys to build their custom cars.  My son was so excited when the box arrived he asked me to open all the kits for him-not even about to happen.  Then he asked Dad, um no Dad not even one lol.

You can see why they were excited.  These sets are very cool and besides the obvious, that they are Batman, they come with lots of interchangeable parts to customize your ride.  Our party was the next weekend so he didn't have long to wait.  The boys really enjoyed putting together their batman cars.  I enjoyed seeing how each of them choose to customize it.  It was very easy for the boys to put them together and once together they already wanted to change the parts to match their friends cars.

After they all customized their Batmobiles they all had so much fun racing them everywhere.  They had fun zooming them around on the hardwood floors and making tunnels out of the couch cushions.  The boys played with their cars for a good hour straight crashing them and racing them all over the house! 

Make sure you check out the Ridemakerz website here.  You can also purchase these sets as well as many others at your local Toys R Us.

Soft Scrub 4 in 1 Toilet Care Review & Giveaway

The bathroom is my least favorite room to clean and I avoid the task at all costs.  Especially the toilet.  Living in a house full of boys, one of which is just using the big potty for the first time makes it a pretty gross job.  I was given the opportunity to try Soft Scrub's new 4-in-1 Toilet Care and was in love with it before I even got it.  Who wouldn't love something you just place on the toilet and forget about for an entire month?

It is very easy to use.  Just open the package and hook it to the side of your toilet bowl.  I have had it there for about a week and it stays in place very well.  It has definitely kept the toilet cleaner overall.  Normally I have to scrub the orange ring that developes around the edge of the water and in the bottom of the toilet weekly and there has been no sign of it yet so I can tell that it is working at preventing future build-up.

It comes in two scents Alpine Fresh, the one I got, and Sapphire Waters.  The scent is a tad strong when first placing it in the bathroom but after a couple of hours it wasn't that overpowering and gave the bathroom a much better scent overall.  At a cost of less then $2.00 for a month of freshness and a cleaner toilet I am highly impressed.

Soft Scrub has once again sent me some coupons to share with my readers so you can try it for yourself.  Enter in the rafflecopter below for a chance to win a FREE Soft Scrub product coupon!!

Dial Kids Body & Hair Wash - Review & Giveaway!

I have always been a huge fan of Dial products and their body wash line is one of my go to products for me personally.  Even my husband loves using Dial for Men so you know I was excited when I saw the new kids line of Body and Hair Wash products.

The new Dial Kids Body & Hair Wash comes in two different age-appropriate variants which have specialized formulas for children ages 2-5 and 6-10.  They come in three great scents, Peachy Clean for ages 2 and up, and Watery Melon and Berry Cool for ages 6 and up.  I was able to try Peachy Clean on Chris and he was excited to be a part of my review!

Chris loved the sweet peachy scent he told me he was going to eat it lol.  (He did not want his picture taken at all as you can see from his expression)  I loved the scent as well which was not overpowering but subtle enough to enjoy.  I also love that it was developed with pediatric dermatologists to provide ultra gentle cleansing.  I have always felt that Chris had outgrown his baby wash products but wasn't yet ready for adult washes.  Dial Kids Body & Hair Wash is that perfect next step for him.  Another huge plus for me is that it is a hair & body wash product in one.  This means one less bottle in the bathroom and less chance for dad to be using the body wash as shampoo or vice versa.

Make sure to check out Dial on their facebook page here where you can enter their sweepstakes for a chance to win one grand prize of $1,000!  250 additional winners will receive a free product coupon.

Dial has also given me some FREE product coupons to offer to my wonderful readers so make sure to enter in the rafflecopter below for yet another chance to try Dial Kids Body and Hair Wash for yourself:
