Plackers Flossers for kids are designed to promote healthy oral habits. These new flossers have a dual grip handle and an angled head so that all different ages can use them. The flavor of the floss is Fruit Smoothie Swirl. Even though these are geared toward kids, I use them too. I like that companies are giving kids of all ages a fighting chance to keep their teeth and gums healthy. The flossers are BPA free and comes in 75 count bags.
Having 2 girls and myself (plus my son who LOVES chapsticks too) we go through a lot of it. I love being able to review for Chapstick! One of the newest in lip care is the Chapstick Duo. “Mix, Match and Attach” Available in over 7 different flavors, you can mix and match flavors to make your own flavor combinations. They either come in singles or doubles (already combined flavors). They are half flavors that snap together, snap and unsnap, rearrange for different flavors. Collect all the flavors! My favorite is one that already came together but is really the best when one flavor on each lip and rubbed together, mmmm; Sweet Peach and Vanilla Shimmer! They will be great to throw in as basket fillers for my daughter and don’t forget that for the boys who love the traditional flavors of chapstick. Chapstick never fails to let me down on flavors and new lip care products. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

I love having play sands and play dough around the house for the kids to keep their minds busy during the winter months or rainy days. Sands Alive has several different themed sets and colors to keep you and your children occupied and happy. We received Sands Alive Sweet Shoppe and we were so excited to get it open and see what fun stuff to make with it. As an aspired baker myself, my little ones are always using my tools as they play with their own sand and play dough so it was nice to see that they actually will have a few of their own to “bake with”.
Sweet Shoppe comes with 1.5 pounds of white Sands Alive sand. 2 Cake Molds, Cupcake Mold, 2 Ice Cream Cones, Ice Cream Scoop, Cake Server and Play Tray (which will help keep those messes off the table and floor). What I really like the most about Sands Alive is that it’s non-toxic. Not that my 5 year old will lick it or anything but I do have a smaller child and you never know if she will think its a crumb and accidentally eat it- worry-free. Also, its reusable! If he’s playing with it and walks away from it for a few hours- like children do- I don’t have to worry that when he want’s to go back to playing with it that it’s gong to be a wasted toy and dried out. Sands Alive! is very easy to clean up. Just roll a small piece into a ball and just dab it out of the carpet or off the table. Whatever doesn’t come out of the carpet will get swept up. Be sure NOT to let your sand come in contact with any water as it will dissolve the sand!

My kids love playing with sand, puddy, play dough and to be honest- anything that makes a mess! I really do spend a lot of time and money picking out tons of sand and dough either off my table, carpet or even toys. I love to keep getting them different things such as these because it helps build hand/eye coordination and also stimulates the brain with imagination. I always give my son plastic silverware and my baking tools to see what fun stuff he comes up with. Morph was another new item that we got to introduce to the children, made by our favorite craft company- ORB Factory. At first I thought that Morph was going to be just another sand just like the Kinetic sands we already have. But its so different. To me, its like a putty AND a kinetic sand together. And so much fun to play with!
Morph, unlike sand wasn’t too “sandy” and flaky. And the more you worked with it, the more moldable it became. We were able to use my cookie cutters on Morph too. And the more you fold it around it will actually grow 3 times its original size to give you 3x what you started with! Remember back in the day (well for me it was the 80’s/90’s) that you could take the silly putty and copy things from paper to the putty? Well, you can actually do that with Morph too! Morph is one of the most unique toys I have had the pleasures of reviewing. You can bounce it, float it, shape it and ink it. Morph comes in 6 bright colors. I am completely ok with allowing my 2 year old to strengthen her brain, as Morph is non-toxic. My little tip. The makers of Fluff claims that to clean it up just to roll it into a ball and it will stick to itself… it does work! Kintetic sand claimed the same and it doesn’t work. So I felt the need to make sure moms and dads know that! Morph will make a great Easter Basket stuffer!
