Toilet Tree The Oral Irrigator review

Toilet Tree The Oral Irrigator review

This review is part of my Mother's Day Guide!

Mom's come in all shapes and sizes.  We are all different and we are beautiful for it.  With that being said I think we can all agree what one mom may love for mother's day another may not.  I personally love the handmade gifts.  There is nothing more special to me then seeing the pride on my little guy's when he hands me something handmade.

Well my little guys are 6 and 3.  For those of you who are older (like me) and looking for a gift I made this guide for you.  To help pick out those one of kind gifts that would be perfect for the mom in your life.


This review is for the 2nd Generation - Professional Rechargeable Oral Irrigator with High Capacity Water Tank by ToiletTree Products.  As a kid I was never forced to go to the dentist.  I remember thinking it was funny when my friends would have to get out of school early to go to the dreaded dentist.  Years later I paid for my parents not taking me by having horrible teeth.  Every single one of my molars has a filling :(.  I spent endless hours being drilled and cleaned and to be honest it was pure he**.
After that I swore I would take care of my teeth and make sure every member of my family had healthy teeth.
I was intrigued by the Oral Irrigator.  It is less abrasive then flossing, helps fight plaque & gingivitis, promotes healthier gums and helps to flush out bacteria.  All of this from one easy to use product!  
2nd generation deisgn powered by rechargeable batteries - Universal Voltage: 100 to 240V~50/60Hz 
10% larger water tank than the original version. 
 Three operating modes for varying oral care needs: Normal Soft and Pulse 
Rotating interchangeable nozzles great for multiple users
 BPA-free and FDA approved.
My hubby left me take photos of him using it.  Don't mind his grumpy face he is not a morning person lol.

My hubby didn't realize to use warm water and used super cold water the first time!  He highly recommends you don't do this, he claims the cold water was to much and using room temp water is the idea water degree.

I love that its rechargeable so no cord getting in my way.  It holds the charge for a long time.  The water tank is the perfect size and last long enough to clean my entire mouth. 

 After using it for just a short time I can tell a huge different in how clean my mouth feels.  I go for my 6 month cleaning in July I can't wait to see if my dentist can see a difference.

ANTBOY


Based On Popular Danish Comic Book Anyboy Debuts In Theaters In Five Major Markets April 16

A young boy who yearns to be something “special” transforms into a mighty super hero in the quintessential family adventure, Antboy, exploding into theaters April 16 from Cinedigm. Hitting screens in Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver, Phoenix and Seattle, the highly acclaimed film, based on the popular Danish comic series by Kenneth B√łgh Andersen, premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Ordinary, overlooked 12-year old Pelle (Oscar Dietz) is transformed into an extraordinary superhero after he is bitten by a super-ant and inherits its abilities. Overnight, the boy who nobody noticed becomes a local hero as he is dubbed “Antboy.” With the help of his new friend and sidekick, comic-loving Wilhelm, climbing walls, flipping cars, stopping robbers and saving babies all become part of his new dream life. But all this changes when super-villain “The Flea” kidnaps a young girl, the subject of Pelle’s affection and terrorizes the citizens of Middelund. Antboy, with his sidekick Wilhelm and their friend Ida who won’t take no for an answer, must fight this treacherous evil, rescue the damsel in distress, save the town from a super-villain and be home in time for dinner. Full of heart, humor and one special hero, Antboy is directed by Ask Hasselbalch, and produced by Birgitte Hald, Eva Jakobsen and Lea Lobger.

The Happy's mommy party #TheHappys

Disclaimer:  I received free products in order to host the Cepia, LLC sponsored Mommy Party via MomSelect.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

The Happys


My home has been taking over, by the Happy's!  Wondering who/what they are?
They are the newest sensation from Cepia, the makers of ZhuZhu Pets. The Happy’s are an super adorable and remarkably real new line of interactive motorized plush pets! 
Not only are they cute, but they do tricks for Happy Treats.  These tricks include racing after their Chase & Play ball, spinning, pouncing up and so much more.  Oh and they even follow their little treat around!  My boys LOVED this :)
 The Happy’s really play with you!  My happy party kit came with the chase and play ball.  This is only 1 of the toys you can purchase for your pet.  My son was watching tv the other day and started to bounce up and down saying he needs the car for his Happy Pet.  I have a feeling the Easter Bunny heard this request and is working on it right now lol

Aliquantum International Djubi review

Aliquantum International Djubi review


Easter is almost here and with it comes the warm weather.  As many of you may know I'm a winter person!  I love the snow and the cold, but the one bad thing about it being cold is my kids are stuck indoors.  I feel bad for my little guys looking longingly out the window.  So each year when the Easter Bunny comes we make sure to request lots of outdoor stuff.

Now for those of you still putting in your requests with EB you may want to ask for this super fun new toy called Djubi by Aliquantum International.

If you are anything like me a few of you are thinking what is that?!?!
 The classic Djubi set is a twist on ‘catch and throw,’ played with special racquets that
have a mesh net and sturdy plastic, easy-grip handle. The small hook at the top of the 
racquet is used to easily launch the Djubi ball up to 100 feet, where the other player(s) try to catch it.  The Djubi ball has a rubber band loop sticking out of that you attach to the racquet and pull back to launch.  I was amazed at how high and how far that little ball went!!
I didn't get a chance to pool test it yet, but I was reading on the website the ball floats so this would also be perfect for a pool party!  And the best part about the Djubi is anyone can play and have a blast!  I'm 27 and I enjoyed it as much as my 3 and 6 year old.  They were both laughing and running back and forth the entire time.  It took a game of catch and throw to a whole new level.  My boys made a fun game where you had to catch the ball and then run to base before the launcher caught you.  I lost every time, but they had a lot of fun making up the game.
This is the perfect toy to get everyone outdoors and moving!

I know a few of you are like me and reading this brought a HUGE smile to your face.  As a kid growing up I LOVED Little House on The Prairie!  Watching the Ingalls and their friends was a childhood past time for me.  On rainy days my mom would get out her Little House movies and we would have all day marathons.  My favorite scenes were the ones with Laura and Nelly.  I remember crying when Mary lost her sight and cheering when Almanzo finally seen Laura as a woman.  (FYI if you ever get a chance google the real Almanzo he was a cutie in real life!!)  I remember wanting to on several occasions pull Nelly and her mom's hair out.  And a tiny part of me always wished Charles Ingalls was my Pa.
I loved watching this show as a child and I'm excited I will now have the chance to share it with my children.

Chalk Preschool review

Chalk Preschool review


Chalk Preschool is an online preschool.  Its a free online preschool filled with activities to keep your child busy and learning.  The classes are engaging and teach young ones lots of new and exciting things. As a mom, I enjoyed and loved that the lessons and videos were designed for my child’s age. Quinn is only 3 so he needs something that isn't too hard, but at the same time isn't so easy he loses interest.  Chalk Preschool was perfect.  It was always changing things up.
Using the site was super easy and my little guy and I were on within minutes.  It has gotten to the point where my Quinn points to the computer and asks if he can go to school :)

FYI the glasses are Quinn's big boy glasses!  When ever he thinks he is doing something "adult" he puts them on lol
OH and did I mention it is beyond easy to sign up!


This is a fun way to give your little one a head start with free online preschool activities!
