Teas' Tea Review

With summer right around the corner, I am always looking for a new way to add flavor and variety to my drinks for my friends and family. My children have always been opposed to drinking water or tea since it does not "taste good." In other words, they don't like water or tea since it is not loaded with sugar. 

I was recently given an opportunity to try Teas' Tea Half and Half. I received a peach flavor and a lemon flavor. It was a quick and easy test for my family. Poor the tea into small cups for everyone to sample and hide the bottles so they did not know what they were drinking.

The lemon variety had a light sweet taste that was very appealing. It was not too sweet, and I could taste the tea and the lemon. The peach variety was also light and sweet, but was even lighter than the lemon flavor. My husband liked the lemon flavor the best and everyone else liked the light flavor of the peach.

Teas' Tea Half & Half is brewed using the finest green tea leaves and slightly sweetened with only 50 calories per serving. half&HALF comes in 5 delicious flavors - green tea & lemon, green tea & green apple (which came in second place at the North American Tea Championships 2012), green tea & peach, green tea & coconut, green tea & grape. You can find he Half & Half beverage at specialty grocery stores, select Whole Foods, Wegmans and online at and

Make A New SpongeBob Friend

In my household, cartoons are a huge hit and SpongeBob it at the top of the "much watch" list. I recently received a SpongeBob from Build-a-Bear workshop to help promote their new Spongebob line that is available as of May 17th.

When SpongeBob arrived at my house, he was tucked aside until the 5-year-old was home. He walked in the door and poor little SpongeBob was all tucked away in his cute little Build-A-Bear home wanting to come out and play. I handed the house (box) to my child and out came SpongeBob SquarePants and the biggest smile ever.

Some small facts about SpongeBob (I promise not to tell you he is square or yellow)
SpongeBob is made of a soft, plush fabric that will not disappoint. What I immediately noticed is that there are no small parts on SpongeBob that may cause choking. His entire face is stitched on. That means that he is safe for younger children!

The new Spongebob line includes:
  • 18 inch Patrick
  • 15 inch SpongeBob
  • 6 inch Gary
  • 8.5 inch Sandy Cheeks

You can also purchase a variety of clothing and accessories  for your new SpongeBob SquarePants or Patrick plush including:
  • SpongeBob's/ Ptarick's  Pirate Costume
  • Pineapple House
  • SpongeBob SquarePants Song Sound Chip
  • SpongeBob PJ pants
  • SpongeBob T-shirt

PSCPets Aging Support for Senior Dogs

Brandy is our lump of a child that sheds all over our house and leave presents for us in our back yard. Brandy is now pushing 13 years old and has a very hard time getting up off of our floor. Over the last several years, her legs have really show the signs of age and discomfort. When I received the PSCPets Aging support for senior dogs, I knew that it would be a perfect fit for my aging Labrador.

The key ingredients in PSCPets Aging Support for Senior Dogs include:

  • Glucosamine which is key to helping the body repair damaged cartilage.
  • Chondroitin which is a structural component of cartilage and helps to support its elasticity.
  • Perna Mussel and MSM which support joint health through anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Vitamin C and Vitamin E for their antioxidant properties and overall immune boosting benefits.
 PSCPets Aging Support for Senior Dogs is a soft chewable tablet designed for aging dogs. The chewable tablets are flavored to encourage easy administration. With an aging Labrador, I was not worried that she would not eat them. She has been the best vacuum in my home.

I have been giving Brandy two chewable tablets a day for the last few weeks and have noticed that she can get up a little quicker. I have not noticed a drastic increase in movement, but i also really did not expect drastic with just a couple of weeks of using the product.

If you are like me and want to keep your aging dog healthy and moving, PSCPets Aging Support for Senior Dogs is a great place to start.

The Bingo Song HD - Intearctive Sing Along Music App Review

I am not sure if I could find someone out there that does not know the Bingo Song. But with the use of electronics, we can now make the Bingo song into a fun interactive game for our kids.The Bingo Song HD for iPads is a great new way to have your children learn while listening to a song that we already know.

The Bingo Song HD app is available for download in the iTunes store for a reasonable price and has several interactive features. Some of the features of the app are:

  • Sing along with Karaoke Mode! 
  •  Record your children singing!
  • Touch and discover fun surprises in the captivating illustrations.
  • Learn about the farm and farm animals with interactive cards
  • Original music and colorful illustrations
  • Rich animations and activities on all pages
  • HD quality graphics and sounds
  • Develop fine motor skills
  • Fun animations and sounds

The 5 year old on my house loved sitting down and singing along with Bingo. Usually I have a hard time getting him sit down at all, but once he figured out that he could sing and record it, he loved it. He thought that listening to himself sing was the best thing in the world. Bingo HD has become his app of choice during his iPad time.

In addition to the singing of the song, there are other features to the application. There are also cards that teach children about farm animals by asking them questions. This area was a little more difficult for the 5 year old since he has learning disabilities, but he likes to click through and ask me for the answers that he does not know. This is an area that he will need to use more for the repetition to help him learn.

I imagine that there is a pretty limited age group that would enjoy this app but currently my children fit right in the age group and truly enjoy singing and learning (and of course listening to themselves) with Bingo HD.

Snuggle Stars Constellation Nightlight Review

With kids in the house, it is always hard to get them to climb in bed without being afraid of the dark. As I parent, I have bought nightlights, cuddly blankets, and showed my kids that there was nothing hiding under the bed or in the closets. Over the years, I have learned is that what kids really need is a soothing environment in their room at night to help eliminate their fears or anxiety. The Snuggle Stars Constellation Nightlight is a great way to help create a soothing atmosphere. They are cute and attractive to small children.


The Snuggle Stars Constellation Nightlight does require three AAA batteries to get it to light up but there is a timed mode to ensure that it shuts off after 20 minutes. Once I put the batteries in my The Snuggle Stars Constellation Nightlight the 5 year old came running. I had not even had a chance to figure out how to turn it on, let alone read instructions. He immediately pushed on the dome and lights were on.

We snuck off to a dark room and closed to door to test it out. While showing him that the lights were on the ceiling, he immediately discovered that he could change the color of the lights on the ceiling by pushing the dome again. It was quickly determined that green was the go to color.

The  Snuggle Stars Constellation Nightlight features 4 colors of stars that can easily be changed with a push on the back of the bear. The stars will light up the ceiling with dim stars in the color that you the batteries do not drain quickly. The feature that appealed to me, as a parent, was the timer. The lights will shut off after 20 minutes to ensure that the batteries do not drain quickly.

This is a great product for anyone with a child that does not like a dark room or has difficulty winding down at night. The Snuggle Stars Constellation Nightlight has managed to make bedtime a little more enjoyable for my child and a little less of a struggle for me.
