ZUS Smart Car Charger

We all know that all chargers for our phones are not created equal, some phones even tell us this when they are plugged in to a slower charger.  Has your phone ever told you it is trickle charging?  Ridiculousness, we have smart phones and now there is a Smart Charger for all your mobile power needs in the form of Zus.

Zus is a smart charger for your smart phone powered by your car.  It can charge two cell phones  (Android or iOS)at the same time in as little as 2 to 2 and a quarter hours.  From empty to full in no time.  Zus may sound like a great charger, but that is not its only asset.

It can also act as a car locator when you park.  Just plug in the Zus, and open up the app, available for free.  Then your parking spot will be saved and you can find it later.  This is perfect for those Summer festivals right around the corner where you leave your local neighborhood and park on side street in a suburban place, only to realize all these houses look the same on the way back when the lights are low.  (Or when you try to find your car in a theme park parking lot…oy.)

I love this feature of the charger, and it will only come in more and more helpful as the Summer months get closer.  Another safety feature is its built in ambiance lighting which is a nice touch in dark vehicles or even darker evenings out.  No longer will that dropped phone be lost until sun up.

Some of the features of this charger include:

Designed in Germany

ElegantShine™ Lighting

Smart Device Detection

Data Plan Free

Titanium Coating

12-month Warranty

Smart Car Locator

US Military Grade Quality

2x Charging Speed (4.8A)

Low Energy Bluetooth

German Bayer Material

ZUS Cooling System

Zus retails for $35.99 each and are available both on their website as well as on Amazon.

I am sure as a kid you have had the conversation of who would win in a fight?  The way this works is a few kids get into a  group an d ask who would win in a fight, this person or this person.  Usually its something like Captain America or Spider-man.  The conversation inevitably moves to the comparison to themselves with different powers using them on one another.  This mixing of powers is the central concept of Marvel Super Hero Mashers.  The new toy line takes familiar characters like The Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man and gives them interchangeable limbs and torsos to the point where A single figure can sport Iron Man’s legs, Spider-Man’s arms, Hulk’s head and Captain America’s torso.

Feed the Woozle: A Fun Game for Preschoolers #GiftGuide

Feed the… what? Yep, you read that right! Feed the Woozle, a fun preschool game from Peaceable Kingdom, arrived at our house a few weeks ago! While the game is specifically made for preschoolers, my girls (school-aged) had fun trying it out anyway. Actually, we all had fun because it was entertaining to watch the girls jump around and do the tasks specified by the game!

Feed the Woozle

Finding a fun gift for under $20 is hard to do, especially in this day and age with iPods, iPads, and every other “i” gadget you could think of, it’s time to step back and relax a bit. Remember the day when you’d sit down with your family and play a board game? We have Family Game Night every Friday night and are constantly looking for new games to play. The same ol’ same ol’ gets a little boring.

Unreal Candy Image

Do you love candy, but hate the calories, the fat content, and the general unhealthiness of it? Hate giving it to your children, but hate denying them something you eat? Here’s a solution: Unjunk your candy. Get Unreal.

I’m sure you are shaking your head wondering what I’m talking about. Well, let me tell you about Unreal candy :).

I’m sure you’ve been there. Fighting with your child about having a ton of candy, and really not wanting to deal with the “but Mommmmm” but also not wanting to deal with the gunk going into their bodies.

The creator of Unreal is a 13 year old and his father. They “unjunked” candy! I’m sure you’re completely blown away, that you think I’m joking….well, I’m not!

What’s Good About Unreal?

  • No Corn syrup
  • No Artificial ingredients
  • No partially hydrogenated oils
  • Less sugar
