Having two boys and a husband at home, finding something all three of them will like is actually pretty easy. When I saw the Vivitar AeroView Drone, I knew all my boys would love it. Over the years, I have gotten my boys R/C cars and small drones before and they have loved them but the one problem being that they have never had a camera on them so the fun part about a drone wasn’t even there. The AeroView Drone has a camera and hooks up to wifi so you can have a live feed of what your drone is seeing. Another thing this drone can do is follow you around and it has GPS tracking so you can’t lose it. This drone has a twelve minute flying time and an auto hover. This is probably one of the coolest drones I’ve seen and I can’t wait to see my boys open it on Christmas.
Vivitar is a very media and technology oriented company and has anything and everything you might need. If you need anything for your phone, camera, or even for your health and wellness, they have it! I know I will be looking on this website for even more products for my boys and even for my girls. With this drone, I can tell my entire family is going to have fun with it. My girls like to play with their brothers and I know they’re going to take embarrassing videos of each other and I can’t wait to see how much fun we can have especially in the summer when all the kids will be playing outside and we can fly the drone around and see what cool shots we can get outside. I love the Vivitar company and I know you and your family will too.
About (taken from website): Vivitar was founded in 1938 as ‘Ponder and Best’ by Max Ponder and John Best in Santa Monica, California. Max Ponder headed the sales department, while John Best ran the operations side of the company. Ponder and Best began by importing German-made photo equipment. Ponder and Best created the “Vivitar” brand to compete with major lens manufacturers. The company commissioned experienced lens designers and top-line Japanese optical lens manufacturers such as Kino Precision to produce their lens designs. In 2016, Vivitar rebrands launching at CES (International Consumer Electronics Show) targeting the millennial consumer who is looking for fun and affordable tech products.
Cry Babies Dolls are the cutest little dolls on the market today. There is currently 6 babies; Bonnie, Lammie, Katie, Conie, LaLa, and Lea. Each doll comes in a box packaging that looks like she’s sitting in a car seat (Super Cute!!!). Also she comes with a changeable onesie and a pacifier. Bonnie- Bear, Lammie- Lamb, Katie- Kitty, Coney- Bunny, LaLa- Mouse, and Lea- Exotic Cat.
My middle daughter has been asking for a Cry Babies since they came out and I can’t wait to give this to her on Christmas morning! When she sees the commercial I hear “I WANT THAT!!” Any parent can relate to those three words lol. We received LaLa, which came dressed in a cute teal and pink onesie outfit costume which looks like a mouse. Lala has purple hair and a purple pacifier. Her arms and legs move freely to help cuddle and play with her. What makes her even more special is that she cries real tears! Her tank to fill with water is on the back of her head (using distilled water only to not damage the tank). She takes 2 AAA batteries (which she comes with)! Turn her on and watch her come to life. Take away her pacifier or put her down and she out loud cries, but pick her up and cuddle her she stops.
I truly believe that she will be really happy to have gotten this. But just remember that giving your little girls AND boys dolls helps boost their imagination and can teach them to be better parents when they get older.
I’m back with some more goodies from Zebra. This time I am focusing on more of the bullet journaling and drawing aspect of the review. I haven’t drawn or really had much inspiration for more than 10 years. I am very pleased that my sons love art and drawing and I have found something that drives my creativity.
MF 701: This is a great box set that comes with a stainless steel ballpoint pen (0.7mm lead) and mechanical pencil with refillable standard lead. Both pencil and pen have a secure knurled grip and a designer metal clip. These are great for office, school and even drawing.
Drawn by my oldest son Ray

My middle son, seven years old, has been needing his own pair of good headphones for some time now. Being young we always got him the cheap ones from Walmart because of his age. But he’s shown us he can be trusted with good pairs. I found Riwbox that agreed to send me a pair for review and I knew right away that he was going to LOVE them!
Riwbox WT-7S LED Wireless Headphones: These are the perfect headphones for a young kid. They are fun to use as the lights on the ear pads move to the music. The Riwbox are easy to use, as everything to control your music is right on the headset. Functions include: play, pause, next & previous track, and volume. Has great sound quality with bass. Comes with a detachable cable to listen to music through bluetooth or even without. The LED will light up when you use Bluetooth Super Connectivity enable consistent connectivity and low battery consumption. My son says they are very comfortable and very lightweight. They have up to a 10 hour talk and music listening time. Compatible with any bluetooth enabled music player, tablet or phone. I was even able to turn on my bluetooth on my laptop and they worked to try them out for my review.
Something else that I wanted to share; because of the cable it comes with has a mic on it I wanted to try it out on him playing video games with it. His brother has an xbox live account and we seldomly allow my youngest son to play games as long as he plays with friends (no strangers). It worked perfectly! It saves us having to get him a gamers headset which are super expensive.
If you are looking for great wireless headphones for your kids, look into these! They come in 3 different colors that will fit all the kids on your list; blue/green, pink/white, and purple/pink.
