KidzLane Portable Sing Along CD, MP3 & USB Player & Giveaway

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


My children LOVE to sing! Whether it is Frozen, VeggieTales or hymns, my children love to sing songs and sing them as loud as they can!

One thing they haven't tried (until NOW!) is karoake or hearing their own voices amplified while singing but now that they have, they don't ever want to stop! The love feeling like rock stars singing their favorite songs and singing into the microphones on the KidzLane Portable Sing Along CD, MP3 & USB Player!

No two kids are alike. And just a matter of a year up or down can dictate what toys are appropriate for your child. The KidzLane™ catalogue is therefore channeled through five individual toy brands, each with its own collection of toys uniquely suited to a particular category of child. What this means for you is a diverse selection spawning from the toddler’s sing-along music player to the teen’s remote-controlled racer vehicles.


My kids can't get enough of this exciting rugged Sing-Along CD & MP3 Player. Featuring a fully programmable CD & Digital MP3 Player with a USB input port and grown up style functions like skip ahead, skip back, random play, intro play, repeat play (single or multiple) and pause.


It comes with 2 Sing-Along microphones to encourage sharing, high quality sound system, triple digit LED screen displaying folder & track, easy to use control, separate volume knob for CD & for the microphones. This is perfect for my two older children - they each get their own to belt out the songs!


Kids will love to listen more of their favorite tunes with this amazing Sing-Along CD Player, Anti-skip protection, withstands bumps and bangs, thanks to it's unique sturdy structure and technology. Runs on 6 "C" batteries (not included). Includes jacks for for headphones & AC adapter (Kidzlane AC adapter sold separately).

#LeapTV Pre-Sale Period is Here!

This post is part of a sponsored campaign with LeapFrog and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It is finally here!!! 

The LeapTV Pre-Sale Period that I have been talking about for a couple of weeks now is finally here!

Gaming just got smarter with LeapTV™ active video gaming system. Kids can learn through motion as they jump, dance and more. With a library of 100+ LeapFrog educator-approved game cartridges, game downloads and videos, kids will never run out of fun! The LeapTV system gets kids into the action while teaching core skills across reading, mathematics, science and problem solving. Games adapt to each child’s level—starting with age, and then automatically adjusting the learning for just the right challenge.




Designed from the ground up for children ages three to eight years old, the LeapTV video game system changes the way children learn by combining activity and movement with best-in-class educational curriculum. With a simple and intuitive user interface, a motion-sensing camera that puts a child directly in the game, a transforming controller that is made for classic gameplay and pointer control gameplay, plus audio prompts throughout the experience to help children navigate games and provide curricular tutorials, LeapTV is the best first video game experience for children.

I love that it is designed JUST for Kids and that it there are Three Unique Ways to Play: body motion, pointer play and classic control.

* Body Motion: Children become the star of their own game. The motion-sensing camera captures a child’s moves and instantly puts them into the game as they explore activities like dance and martial arts. Children can run, hop and tip-toe or wave their arms to defend goals, karate-chop fast-moving blocks, scuba dive and more.

* Pointer Play: Pointer play takes pretend play to new levels of engagement. The controller transforms into a pointer with a simple twist and lets kids snap jungle vines, slice through coconuts, swing from building to building and more.

* Classic Control: Classic control puts fun at a child’s fingertips. They can press the A and B buttons for

Get Your Back to School Clothing from French Toast!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Does your child have to wear uniforms for school? Or maybe you are just looking for some really cute dressier clothes for their school pictures, concerts, or special events!

Then let me recommend French Toast, the leading school uniform brand in the country! For just $125, parents can buy one year's worth of school uniforms.

I received some really cute and functional items for my two children from French Toast - they are perfect for the upcoming school year AND around the house!

Girls Hooded Sweatshirt


Soft and cozy for those chilly days, our hoodie is cute and sporty with its attached hood and ruching on the front. Knit detailing on the cuffs, pockets and bottom. Full zip. Cotton blend. Imported. Machine wash.


This is one of the cutest sweatshirts I have ever seen for a girl! I love the cute buttons and it has a hidden zipper for easy on and off! My daughter also LOVES the pockets and I love the hood and really comfy material for keeping her warm this winter!

Girls Fleece Pant


So comfortable she will want to wear it everyday, and styled just right so she can, our fleece pant is perfect for class or for gym. Adujstabtle drawstring waist, easy squared off pockets and full flared leg, make this her go to pant. Cotton blend with Wrinkle No More fabric. Imported. Machine wash.


These pants are so cute for any little girl! From the ruched pockets to the little flare at the bottom, these pants are so cute AND comfy! I love the thick, soft material and this outfit makes me want to cuddle my daughter all day!


Mocked Layered Pique Polo in Blue




This soft "baby pique" polo features a mock tee shirt that is visible just above the placket and below each sleeve. With a flat knit collar and single jersey fabric it's both comfortable and fashionable! Cotton blend. Imported. Machine wash.


My son looks so old and handsome in this shirt! He is definitely ready for school in this shirt (or church, special occasion or even around the house!). It is really comfortable and I love the built in undershirt!

These clothes all fit my children great, are really comfortable material and great for any school uniform code or just around the house too! Plus, they all come in several great colors!

Great Back to School Tips & Snacks from KIND Snacks!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Today, I bring you another great snack idea for your child's lunch box this school year: KIND Snacks!

KIND Snacks are a brand of delicious, all natural, foods made from ingredients you can see & pronounce®. With their lines of snack bars, KIND Fruit & Nut®, KIND PLUS™, and KIND Nuts & Spices, as well as their line of 100% Whole Grain granola, KIND Healthy Grains™, they have quickly become one the fastest growing brands in the natural foods space. Beyond crafting award winning foods, they aim to make the world a little kinder through the KIND Movement, which has inspired hundreds of thousands of unexpected acts of kindness around the world.


I absolutely LOVE their KIND Bars for snacks on the go and for school lunches!

KIND Bars are made with tasty ingredients you can see & pronounce, like nuts, fruits, honey and spices. Mysteries belong in novels, not in your food.

I also tried their Healthy Grains Clusters for the first time!

KIND Healthy Grains Clusters are delicious blends of nature's best ingredients including five super grains that are rich in nutrients, making them the perfect snack for your healthy lifestyle.

Always gluten free and non GMO. It tasted great in Greek Yogurt and I loved eating it as a snack for sustained energy throughout the day!

Check out these great tips from KIND Snacks as you start the upcoming school year craziness!

Breakfast Checklist: 

If your kids are in too much of a rush for breakfast, their school performance could suffer. This study found that kids who eat breakfast miss less school, average higher math scores, and 20% are even more likely to graduate! Easy, quick and nutritionally dense options are best to ensure they can at least grab breakfast as they run out the door in the morning. Make sure you check off protein, fiber, and healthy fats for this meal for energy and brain power.

Pack a Snack: 

Packing healthy options is the best way to help your kids avoid all the unhealthy choices lurking around their school. Between vending machines, bake sales, candy fund raisers and the snacks in the lunch line, who knows what they’re eating throughout the day! If they keep some healthy snacks in their locker or school bag, they’re less likely to fall prey to all these temptations, and they’ll be getting the brain food they really need.

Lunch Punch: 

Did you know that in school lunch lines, pizza and french fries are considered vegetables? It might be the safest option to pack a school lunch to ensure your kids are getting the real vegetables they need, as well as fruits, proteins and whole grains. Make it interesting with some bold flavors to ensure they actually eat what you pack!

Parent’s Lunch Crunch: 

Don’t forget mom or dad! During back to school it can be all too easy for parents to forget about taking care of themselves when they’re taking care of their kids. When you’re in a time crunch, make sure you too have easily accessible, healthy foods to snack on and reach for when it’s lunch time. Maybe pack your own lunch at the same time you pack for your kids so you can ensure a healthy meal is ready when you are!

Buy It: You can purchase all KIND Healthy Snacks from the KIND online store.
