Dino Lingo

Just when I think they can't do anything better to help kids and babies learn I am proven wrong. I logged onto Influenster and found out about some amazing video's. Dino Lingo is such a cute program. My kids and I all loved watching it and enjoying the videos. They come in all different languages so everyone can enjoy watching and learning! Check out the English version here. You can also check more out in English here. If you need another language you can check this page here. We all want the best for our kids and this is one free way to get their minds and imaginations growing and learning beyond anything else you could ever imagine. This would be one way I would help develop my kids' minds and probably one of the only reasons they would be on the computer. It's not all the videos though you still need to interact with them while they are watching the videos to further imbed it into their brains. The more they see, hear, and get from you the faster they will be on the path of being amazing!. Computers are awesome but never forget our future and that is our children so let's make sure we frame their minds correctly right now!

Influenster is a free program where people come together and speak their mind about products that they were given the oppurtunity to try for free.

All videos belong to Dino  Lingo as does the name Dino Lingo.

TMNT watermelons for Halloween


Halloween is my favorite holiday and especially when I can make things all for free! I got free watermelons from a local food bank, before I could tell my husband not to eat them he had his dad stop and take one to him at work where they all devoured the poor watermelon lol So with only 3 watermelons left I asked my husband what his 3 favorite Ninja turtle characters were (well I asked what colors they were specifically lol) and set out to making them for him. I cut open the tops and used an ice cream scoop to get the insides out. Then when they were all cleaned out I made mouths with one of my knives. I then took ribbon that I had just gotten for free (The irony lol) from Smiley360 and made the masks. I used glue which also came free from Smiley360 and glued them on and tied them in the back. I then put the corresponding colors of glow sticks in their mouths and stuck them outside with the guts and outside leftovers of the others. So when people asked I said the last one commited turtle suicide, I even had  a toy gun lying there and had all the other watermelons positioned around the one lol This was my favorite thing to do for Halloween since I was small enough to go trick or treating. The top pic are the ones I did and the bottom pic is where I got the idea so thank you whoever did it first and put a pic up on internet lol

Nerf Firevision football

One of things we like to do in this house is sports. Since I got sick I haven't been able to really join in at all but I still really wanted to. So when I got offered a sports related mission on Bzzagent I was over the moon happy to try and I got picked. It didn't really say what you would get and I was not familiar with the Fire Vision line of products from Nerf. I didn't want to get too excited so I refrained from going to Wal-Mart and seeing what all they had. (that was so hard!) But on the day the mail came  I wanted it to be a totally new experience for me and my family.

When I opened the package I was excited to see that it was a football I just wasn't sure if it would really work as it said it would. I took it out of the box it was mailed in and looked it all up and down reading everything I could about it because I knew once it came out of that package everything would get lost (instructions, box etc) and as expected it did. I didn't show my kids right away because I wanted to test it out first and see what it was all about. So once it got dark my husband and I went outside and tried it out.

This comes with 2 pairs of "glasses" with either a red or green light in the middle of them. I should say that before I  knew what the glasses did I assumed that the ball lit up or glowed or something on its own. This is not the case, the ball has reflectors on it which when paired with the glasses make the ball look lit up to where you can see it coming.

We had a blast playing catch. The glasses need some padding or something though as they hurt our noses and foreheads a little bit. Also with a big family 2 pairs of glasses can be a hassle and a fight starter. So we went to Wal-Mart to try and find some more pairs and were sad to find out they don't sell just the glasses by themselves. The only way to get more glasses was to buy more products. As a family on a tight small budget this is not in the cards right now but I will be willing to buy more like the basketball game they have but even that only comes with one pair of glasses!! I am hoping they start selling just the glasses soon so we can play as a family and have less fighting over who is going to play.

But with all that said this is an amazing product to have and they have many more you can buy as well and see what you think if football is not your style. It was free and an amazing gift for our family. One of my favorite freebies I have gotten so far I love it. So try Bzzagent out you will love it to. Let me know if you want to sign up and I will give you my personal link!

Kashi

Kashi is a "health crazy" company as I call them. I am not really into healthy food I would rather have "real" food as I call it and not rabbit food. So when I got the invite to try out kashi on Mom's Meet I thought I would give some health food a try I mean after all it couldn't kill me. I expected to get maybe 10 to 15 of the "brownie" bars. This was one of my first testing experiences on the site so I wasn't sure what to expect really. But when this huge box arrived from them I was not sure what to think and when I opened it I really gasped at what I recieved. Going from thinking  I was going to get a few products to what I saw when I opened the box I was floored.

I was only told I was getting "brownies' to try out with my group..so when I opened the box I was so very happy. They gave me 10-5 count boxes of the "brownies" a 5 count box of banana and chocolate chip bars, 2 different kinds of Kashi cereal and a neat little bag which I use for groceries and other things so that my house doesn't get cluttered up with plastic bags and paper bags. This was an amazing gift from Kashi and Mom's Meet that I won't soon forget.

When I had my party it was the first time that I tried the "brownies." I can honestly say that none of the mom's or dad's enjoyed this product at all. It tastes weird and is really dry. When we looked at the ingredients we saw that one of ones on the list was sweet potatoes. Not sure how anyone else felt about it but I don't think that a product that is suppose to be a brownie should have sweet potatoes in it..maybe it's just me. With that said the kids at the party absolutely loved the brownies. They couldn't get enough of them so I sent boxes and boxes home with the parent's who wanted them.

In the end I wouldn't recommend parent's eat them but if you want a good healthy product for your kids and you can find these at a decent price you should get them. They are something that kids like and  they are healthy as well so you don't have to worry about sugars and other bad things. Its a win win I guess, you won't eat their snack and they will definitely get some vitamins and veggies in a safe healthy way.

This program is totally free and easy to get into and figure out! Try it out you won't be sorry I promise.

Lemi Shine

I was fortunate to recieve a Lemi Shine party pack in the mail and I was not dissapointed at all. I wasn't sure what to think about what I would recieve or not recieve so I tried not to think about it so I could be surprised. I had never tried the products before and was ready to try them out.

The party pack included 10 Lemi Shine bags, 10 dishwashing crystals bag, 10 bags for cleaning the actual dish washer or washing machine, and a 25 count pack of napkins. I tried out both of the bags and was pleasently surprised that they worked so well. Everything came out spotless and just amazing! Very clean and no mess to clean up from the bags and such.

I have 9 friends lined up to come for the party and I can't wait for them to get the products home and tell me what they think of them as well. I would totally recommend these products and this company. They put the ease into cleaning and makes it almost fun at the same time. No messes to clean up and only takes a few seconds to open and pour. Totally  worth trying out!

Check out Lemi Shine on their facebook Lemi Shine, I heard they do a lot of giveaways and parties!

Softcups

I was selected to recieve a free sample box of Softcups through Mom's meet to try out myself and give feedback. I was unsure what I would think of this product because its not like anything I have used before. Also I didn't  know if it would work with a heavy flow. Basically soft cup is a product that almost looks like a diaphragm and you stick it up in your vagina and use two fingers to get it into place. That is all you have to do. I put on a pad or panty liner as well because there is a little bit of leakage but not much. They last 12 hours for each one and no chance of toxic shock syndrome like some other products like tampons. If you aren't use to tampons it could be a little weird the first few times. Unlike tampons you can have sex with these in although it is a little weird I couldn't feel anything different but my husband was not digging it at all.

After I filled out my survey they asked me if I wanted to try these out with my mom's group. I was heistant at first because even though we afre women this is not something we usually talk about but after thinking about it I applied and got accepted. I can not wait to have my mom's party and hand out the samples and find out what the other ladies in my group think about them and if they would buy the product or not.

I have recieved other things from Mom's meet and its all totally free all you have to do is sign up to become a  Mom's meet ambassador at the link above and wait for an email with a testing oppurtunity. Click the link and fill out all the info honsetly and quickly (they do fill up fast sometimes) and then wait for a follow up emal saying if they picked you or not. If you get pcked just wait for the product to come, try it out and have your party and get feedback from all the mom's. You will use this info to fill out a survey so that the brands, mom's meet, and other potential buyers can find out everything they need to know to decide if this product is right for them or not. The best part is it is all totally free and never hurts to try.

Kettle Brand Potato Chips

I try to sign up for every giveaway and contest I can find because you can never win if you don't try. I don't win very often but when I  do it's usually for some amazing stuff! The  best contests to win are contests that you don't even remember entering. This contest was one that I did not remember entering until I got the email saying that I won. It was for their "birthday"  I am not a big fan of kettle chips in general from any company because they taste like they are stale and just old. I did try a few of each bag and that was enough for me! My husband on the other hand loved the heck out of these. He ate a bag a day at work and I am currently looking to find some more for him. They gave nice sized bags and some amazing flavors as well. I was very happy with these chips, this brand, and how happy and full they made my husband.  I would totally recommend these to anyone wanting to try a new kind of flavor and chip.

Zebra Breast Cancer Pen

When I had the oppurtunity to get this I was so happy because I had tried their pens before and I really love them. When it arrived in the mail I was happy to see that it was a dual pen meaning it can write in red and black. Bringing back memories of middle school and the pens where you could write in like ten different colors. I was super excited to open it up and try it out. Just like with the pens of old the ink things move around way too much and hand writing gets a little crazy. Its a beautiful pen but not something I would use for everyday writing. I will try a few more times and see what I think after getting use to it and maybe I will like it better.

Green Mountain #Imabzzagent #GotItFree

<img src="http://img.bzzagent.com/image/GMCfairTrade.jpg?Type=activity&Activity=9081228831&Campaign=6979708601&Uid=1294315&token=39bd7c8e59547302fe128a86ee1def97" alt=""/>

As a bzzagent I sometimes get to try out products for free and leave my reviews for said products. I want to start out by saying I used to love bzzagent at first I wasa getting on so many campaigns and having the best time but lately it has went downhill and campaigns are getting to be few and far between. I still continue to try and hope that I won't just give up on my perfect 10 bzzscore and move on to another site.

Anyway about green mountain. When I recieved the invite I was not going to saay no for the reasons I stated above even though I don't usually like coffee all that well. I tried to have an open mind but was sure I would not like it. Boy was I wrong. The room filled up with this amazing aroma like none I have ever smelled. I thought ok it smells good but it is going to taste like beans or something worse so I still had my doubts.  I tried it warm first and was not impressed it had that beany flavor to it and I was about to give up when I decided I wanted to try it on ice that maybe that would taste a wee bit better. It was amazing like night and day for me. It tasted so much better on ice then warmed up which made me super happy.


Ordinairily I would only have one cup/glass full and be done but I couldn't stop drinking it. By noon I was bouncing off the walls with eneregy it was so much fun! I will never go back to regular coffee ever again. For people like me who don't like the taste of regular coffee this is for you. Try it and I guarantee the flavor might be the only thing that you complain about.  Everyone is different and have their own tastes but I must say I love the Wild Mountain Blueberry it is like heaven in a glass and leaves you wanting more!
