Brush Buddies Kung Foo Panda

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid in anyway to write this review.

Some mornings getting my boys to brush their teeth is impossible.  And getting them to do it for 2 full minutes is torture.    They are 5 and 8, the age where they just want to go go go.

I learned a trick a long time ago and that is to make things fun.  Why should brushing their teeth be a chore when it can be a fun activity?
Are you a Kung Foo Panda fan who wants to have a flashy, pearly white smile? We have the perfect gift for you! Brush Buddies, the iconic brand of high-functioning, entertaining oral care products has joined forces with DreamWorks to add a Kung Foo Panda line of toothbrushes. The new oral care line, featuring the adorable Po, includes electric and manual toothbrushes, light up brushes, singing brushes and other oral care products. The BPA- free brushes, feature high- quality bristles that last longer than competing brands and will make your mouth cleaner than ever. Some brushes even include a timer that tells you how long to brush for and a light that blinks when the 2 minute dentist recommended time is up! Brushing your teeth has never been more fun.

Kung Fu Panda Flash Light-Up Toothbrush

The sculpted Flash Light-Up Toothbrush features Po as the base of the brush. Press Po’s bellybutton and the timer light flashes for 2 minutes, which is the brushing time recommended by dentists.

I got the Bear necessities!  Please tell I am not the only person who gets this song stuck in their head?  And the worst part is I only know 2 lines so I sing that part over and over again :)

As a little girl I LOVED The Jungle Book I could watch it over and over again.  Even if King Louie scared me!  My boys and I watched the cartoon together a dozen times and each time we would sing and dance along to the fun songs in this movie.
I am sure you can imagine just how excited we are that we now get to watch The Jungle Book in a whole new way
Be the first to bring it home on Digital HD August 23 and on Blu-ray August 30 and venture deep into the jungle with in-depth bonus features

So I adored the entire movie as did my boys.   The talking animals were awesome and see a beloved store made life like was magical.  I think my favorite part may just be the scenes with Mowgli and Baloo.  The two of them together was charming and the little bantering between Bagheera and Baloo had everyone giggling 

The Biggest Story, written by Kevin DeYoung and illustrated by Don Clark #TheBiggestStory & #FlyBy

My boys are obsessed with all things history.  Every year they beg me to take them to Gettysburg.  We go to Washington DC and I am not fibbing here I think we watched at least 10 documentaries about the Titanic.

So I know you are wondering what is she getting at here.....  The Bible it is part of all of our history.  Each of us have a claim to be part of this story. 
 It really is The Biggest Story!
As with most things I need to sometimes teach my boys in a different way.  That is why I adore The Biggest Story written by Kevin DeYoung.  It makes The Bible relate able to kiddos.  It helps them to learn it in a whole new way

The Animated Short Film: Featuring beautifully animated illustrations adapted from the book, The Biggest Story: The Animated Short Film will captivate children and parents alike as they see how all the classic stories in the Bible connect to Scripture’s overarching message about God’s glorious plan to redeem his rebellious people. The Audio Book: This audio book of The Biggest Story—written and narrated also by the best-selling author Kevin DeYoung—leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ's death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth.

The DVD plays like a book with a narrator and beautiful photos.

The Simply Me Blog 2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Merry Christmas and happy Holidays Simply Me Blog readers!!  Many of you may not know this about me but I am part Irish!  
Growing up my mom would also put a candle near our window on Christmas Eve.  Little girl me use to love this and would ask my mom WHY?  After many years I knew the why, I just wanted to hear her tell me.
The reason was just in case someone like Mary and Joseph needed help in the night that candle showed we were willing to help.  I asked her why my other friends didn't do this and she use to pat my head and tell me it was because we were Irish.  Was that the real reason?  I have no clue!!  But little girl me was pretty proud to be Irish at Christmas time and I use to clean my room extra clean that night in case Mary and Joseph needed to stay in my room.

That was one of my favorite holiday traditions growing up.  Baking cookies with my nanny, singing Christmas songs with my siblings and making cards for family were some of my other favorite times.  For me the holidays is about family.  One of my other favorite thing is getting that perfect gift!  Seeing someones face light up as they open my gift and I know I got it right!  That all the time and stress I put into getting just the right gift was so worth it to see them smiling

The Simply Me guide wants to help make Christmas shopping a bit easier this year.  So over the next few weeks I will be offering tips and gift ideas!  Keep checking back to see all the fun stuff that will be added
