Win Easter PEEPS Gift Set

Disclosure- “The PEEPS & COMPANY® products, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by PEEPS & COMPANY®.”

Easter is such a fun time- spring is starting to bloom, or some years, it’s in full bloom already. The weather is finally getting nicer, you can put your winter coats and snow boots away (huzzah! my favorite part, for sure). Easter is a special day on the religious calendar, and the reason to celebrate the holiday. We also celebrate with fun treats and baskets to celebrate spring, which has come to be associated with the holiday as well.

I have several relatives that love PEEPS, my son being one of them. PEEPS are one of his favorite treats, for Easter and honestly every holiday that they are made for. He just loves them. Mommy makes sure his Easter basket is always full of PEEPS in every shade and variety she can find.

 

Not only does he enjoy PEEPS, but jelly beans, lollipops, and of course stuffed animals. There are so many choices from PEEPS & COMPANY that it makes filling a basket easy, and takes no time at all. Here are some of the items that are offered-

What’s New at Dollar Shave Club

Disclosure- The following was sent for review in order to facilitate this post. The items were reviewed by my husband, who wrote (much of) this post. For more, see “I Disclose”.

As a man, there are fewer things more mindbogglingly annoying as buying a razor.  Many of them are locked up behind a counter, as well as being astronomically priced- but they are necessary evils.

Or so we thought- with the internet, there is now a way to get blades for an entire month for as little as $3.  Dollar Shave Club is here with a great deal for anyone who shaves.  As an introduction, prices are reduced so getting into the swing of using the club saves you money as well.  Once up and running, it is possible to get refill blades every month then after delivered to you for as little as $3.  But razors and handles aren’t the only shaving items available.

Superfoods Snack Time with The First Years

Disclosure- We received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own and honest.

Dinner Time and Snack Time can be quite the feat with young children, as anyone that has eaten with a child may well know. The First Years is going above and beyond to make sure that it is a much more enjoyable experience for everyone.

About The First Years:

3 Things The First Years believes above all else:

  1. Your journey as a parent is uniquely your own.
  2. The not-so-smooth moments are more memorable than when the stars align.
  3. Think out of the box and trust yourself; you’ve got this

The First Years was founded by parents more than 65 years ago. Mr. & Mrs. Sidman from Roxbury, Massachusetts were looking for the next big thing to grow a business. Marshall Sidman found it in an innovative diaper pin developed by a friend – one that wouldn’t prick parent’s fingers or baby’s skin. He approached local stores and The First Years journey began. Today, The First Years is a leading global juvenile products brand, recognized for it’s breadth of thoughtfully designed products that help parents through the many unexpected twists and turns on their own parenting journeys.

About Double Duty Plates:

It’s easy to “Put a lid on it” with The First Years Take & Toss Double Duty Plates! The plates double as lids for on-the-go meals, with a built-in utensil compartment for added convenience. Each leak-proof compartment seals independently so food stays separated and fresh.

What To Put In An Easter Basket

With Easter just around the corner, you are likely thinking of what you might put into your children’s Easter baskets this year. Here are a few fun suggestions that we think you and yours might enjoy.

Surprizamals are the perfect toy to put in your basket- they are cute for any time of the year, but love them for Easter baskets because they come in their own balls that are roughly the size of your basic plastic egg. The “surprise” is that you don’t know what animal comes inside each ball- there are even some very rare ones your child will enjoy looking for. These toys are small, cute, and inexpensive, and the “surprise” aspect of them really makes kids like them that much more. Not to mention, that they are easy to collect. An easy win.  Available at https://www.surprizamals.com/

We’ve mentioned Whiffer Sniffers before, but there is a new series out as well as new Spring/Easter exclusives that little fans or collectors will really enjoy. These scented plush characters really smell like they are supposed to.  They are fun toys that come with clips so that they can hand off your child’s backpack (or whatever they prefer). These small toys pack a large fragrance as well- several months later, I still smell the ones he’s had on his backpack from August. Not overwhelming. Also, the sweet smell of confections is one I will take over the gross “little boy playing” smell any day of the week, I will tell you that. There are several sizes and styles available for each character-  snuggley super size, a backpack clip, and scratch ‘n’ sniff stickers. You can also find exclusive characters only found inside specially marked mystery packs. Ah, the fun is in the hunt, right? Grab yours at a toy store near you or at http://whiffersniffers.com/ .

Candy Free Easter Baskets

With Easter around the corner, you are likely starting to gather items for your children’s baskets. You probably don’t want to fill them with candy, and might be looking for other small items to put inside. Here are a few toys we think are a great fit.

Are your children fans of Super Wings? The new Super Wings Vroom ‘n Zoom are great for pre-k and toddler aged kids, they push to rev up, then release them to speed away.  Jett and friends available, $5.99.  Also available are the Super Wings Transform-a-Bots four Pack. These planes can transform from planes to robots in just three easy steps, each slightly differently, since they are shaped uniquely. Transform-a-bots let your kids recreate favorite scenes from the Super Wings TV show or imagine whole new helpful deliveries. $11.99

super wings toys
PJ Masks, another show for young kids, makes similar cars. PJ Masks Mini Vehicles feature your favorite heroes from the hit show.  You can get Catboy in his Cat-Car, Gekko in his Gekko-Mobile, and Owlette in her Owl Glider. Each car is $6.99 at stores like Walmart and Toys R Us. The cars are a good size for small hands, and are easy to push and roll around.

Madballs are great for slightly older kids, and even tweens. They are fun, gross, and collectable. Millennials and kids born around that time might remember them- they were first out in 1985 (so dad will likely get a huge kick out of them as well).  Icky faces made of foam that are also great to throw, hit, bounce, etc- everything you’d do with any other ball, but these are “way more better” since they have gruesome features.  They come in the classic 3 inch (typical ball-ish size) and mini blind bags. Six Madballs characters are currently available: Dustbrain, Horn Head, Oculus Orbus, Screamin’ Meemie, Skull Face, and Slobulus. $7.99 each, $2.99 for the mini blind bags.
