WIN! Eight Fungisaurs Identified By Clever Kids Around The World @Fungisaurs

What do you get when you genetically cross a Velociraptor dinosaur with a Chicken of the Woods mushroom? Why even ask? Because kids everywhere have discovered Fungisaurs ($10).  These imaginative collectible toys expect to be the next-big-thing with kids ages 4 and up.

dinosaur toys

The whole family will soon dive into the topics of travel, science and biodiversity once they interact with Fungisaurs.  The irresistible combination of imaginative toys, games and animation will have youngsters naming a Mica Cap versus a Scaly Hedgehog.  And just like mushrooms, Fungisaurs’ spores disperse in the air, so the creatures quickly spread (in a good way) to all corners of the globe.

Like many collectibles, not knowing exactly which character is in the mystery box starts the fun.  Fungisaurs toys have an added bonus –free entry into an AR mobile game. Collect them, swap them and get ready to create imaginative play time.  All ages will be enchanted with the eight dino/mushroom mash ups.

Here are our thoughts on the Fungisaurs- our unboxing video.

One of you can win a 3 pack and app code. Ends end of the month, good luck!

Avoid the “Covid Slide”- Keep Your Kids Learning While Having Fun!

If you are like me, you are willing to try ANYTHING to keep your kids active and learning over the summer- not to mention, really, since Covid became part of our existence. It’s hard when they aren’t in school, and many of us don’t know what to do to keep them from losing knowledge (or from wanting to be in front of the TV and video games all day, ugh). Here are a few DIY kits we’ve really loved.

EOSSI Beauty Treatment – CBD Face Oil

Making its debut on International Self-Care Day (July 24) with its first product release is Eossi facial oil, with 1,000mg hemp-derived CBD and other natural ingredients that will achieve your summer glow goals. Please see the video below for unboxing and my thoughts.

“Eossi Beauty, the newest indie beauty brand creating affordable luxury plant-based products, officially launched its brand on International Self-Care Day and announced the first product drop: Facial Glow Oil #8. Inspired by the power of plants, including argan oil and CBD, the Facial Glow Oil #8 illuminates the skin with natural ingredients.

Designed to complement a daily beauty routine, the facial oil is a hydrating, restorative skincare solution that gives the skin a natural glow. The Eossi Beauty team created Facial Glow Oil #8 after recognizing a growing demand in the beauty space for high-quality, trusted CBD products at accessible price points. The ingredients—which include essential oils and broad-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD that is third-party lab tested—were meticulously selected for their skin-enhancing properties.

Facial Glow Oil #8 is named for the formulation: Of the 16 batches tested when developing the final formula, #8 was the perfect one.” (according to Business Wire)

Coral UV 3-in-1 Sanitizer

With recent attention paid to UV-C sanitizers for at home disinfection, we want to introduce you to the Coral UV 3-in-1 Sanitizer: a compact, UV-C sanitizer that provides an easy and chemical free solution for sanitizing everyday items. Our most used items collect the most germs but are the hardest to clean (keys, cell phones, TV remotes). The UV 3-in-1 sanitizer is an effective solution for limiting germs around yourself and your home.

UV light sanitizer

Coral UV uses a high energy, artificial UV-C ray that breaks down the DNA of bacteria and germs and disrupts their ability to reproduce. Compared to other forms of disinfection, the Coral UV 3-in-1 doesn’t damage materials over time like steam sanitizers, can sanitize items in as little as 10 minutes, and requires minimal maintenance.

With an influx of UV-C sanitizers hitting the market, there are a few key functions that distinguish Coral UV from other brands:

  • Accreditation & 3rd Party Testing – Coral UV can back up their claims of 99.9% UV-C sanitation with successful tests from accredited institutions.

  • Minimal design – No one has room in their home for a UV-C sanitizer as large as a mini fridge. Coral UV is a top-open, compact sanitizer that naturally fits in with the rest of your kitchen, nursery, or living room. This helps to maintain consistent use.

  • Stainless Steel Chamber – Reflective stainless steel ensures the sanitizing UV-C light reaches every corner inside the device.

  • Drying function – A built in drying function is convenient for items you might rinse off beforehand, such as pacifiers and water bottles. Coral UV is one of the only sanitizers that has this option.

  • Replaceable parts – Over a long period of time, UV-C lamps can lose some of their strength. Coral UV has replaceable bulbs included and for purchase on their website so you don’t have to eventually replace the entire unit.

The Coral UV 3-in-1 sanitizer will be stocked for purchase at coraluv.com and on Amazon.

Here is a video of myself and my young son learning how to use it. It’s pretty easy, we think you will love it- especially now, with the urgent need to be as clean as possible.

Hand2Mind Moving Creations

Looking to fill your “shelter in place” days with a little more then TV? If you are like me, you are worried about all the school your little one is missing. We are really looking at learning toys and hands on learning, experiments, and anything that lets them learn by doing while they are home with us.

Get a DVD Player and 5 Movies for only $19.96 #GiftGuide @walmart @redbox

Yes I know, I know. Who even watches DVDs anymore? Me, that’s who. And everyone over 40. And honestly, I like having kids DVDs I can hand over that can just be repeated on a long road trip or plane ride. My grandparents and everyone my parents age still use them- so it’s not a totally lost form now, is it? And its easy, it just it. But the price is right- you can’t get EVERYTHING on streaming services, unless you are a hacking genius or don’t mind gritty and grainy watches, so even just the movie rentals make it worth it. I’ve never used Redbox, and I don’t even know of any of the rental boxes around here, so I will have to see how that works, but hey- nothing ventured, nothing lost. It’s always good to try something new.

Just in time for the holidays, for a limited-time only, Walmart is offering five free rentals from their local Redbox with the in-store purchase of an ONN DVD player that only cost $19.96, available on November 1st. That’s less than renting four on-demand movies, making it a great deal for families and friends who are planning their next viewing party.

So head on over to Walmart and see if they have any still in stock. If they do, it’s a gift under $20, and those are hard to come by. Good for someone hard to buy for, moms with little kids, grandparents, and more. Check it out and let me know what you think.
