4.0 out of 5 stars Love, but screen protector could be better, February 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It seems to do its job, but this is one of those things that you have to believe. I ordered one each for my husband and I and his was a harder casing, mine more rubber like the photo. From a protection stand point, it's great. And it has a trimmer design than the otter box. The only complaint is the screen protector is just a sticky piece of film that may keep from scratching, but not full protection. I am overall happy with the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well!, February 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Cell phone test worked, well, I had full bars then when I peeked at it I saw it go from 1-2, so it appears to work as described. I love it for keeping my belly covered too as maternity tops do not seem to be long enough and my belly likes to peek. Someone commented that it runs small, I did not find this at all. I had also planned to use as a belly band and wish I had not gone up a size as it fits comfortably but def does not help keep the pants up!

My son loves this space shuttle. I wish the wheels were a little more durable. But otherwise the quality is great! We have several from this company and all look very nice and hold up well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality, February 15, 2013
This review is from: Gone Fishing Game (Toy)
I remember playing a game like this as a child. However, this one is very poorly made. The tips on the pole easily come off and after 2 uses one of the tips broke off completely leaving us with one pole. I emailed the company and received no response. Very disappointed. I did give a 2 star because we have used our fingers or took turns with the 1 pole for 30 seconds each.

5.0 out of 5 stars yummy bunnies!, August 17, 2009
This cereal is great! It's all natural, so I feel good about giving these to my daughter. Much better than the artificial junk in Fruit Loops. The flavor is really good. The color of the cereal is not as vibrant as the box portrays, but it is all natural colors, so I guess you can expect that. My daughter loves this cereal. It's also a great dry snack. She often has it dry in a snack cup on the way to pre-school. It still has a little more sugar in it than I'd like, but at least it's real sugar! It's a little expensive for such a small box.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome and effective!, July 29, 2008
This stuff is GREAT!! After the recent report on most sunscreens failing to work, I consulted the EWG's list of what they considered to be the safer and most effective of the sunscreens. TruKid Sunny Days SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen lotion and TruKid Sunny Days SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen Water Resistant Face Stick were both on the list, so I ordered some from Amazon for our beach trip.

The bottles are small I will say, however, compared to California Baby, it's less expensive. The product has a nice citrus scent, it goes on smooth and does not feel greasy. It also does not leave a white mess. And most importantly, we did not get burned! We kept reapplying it about every 90 minutes or so, and everyone on our trip got burnt except us! They were using Bull Frog mainly and they were reapplying, too.

My 2 year old loved to use the stick on all our faces. She thought it was fun, so it was not a battle to get sunscreen on her.

Another bonus, the customer service and shipping were great! I ordered from Amazon.com and the shipment arrived in about 4 days. I emailed to check the status, but about an hour later it arrived, so I emailed back to say never mind it had arrived, but they still responded! They are also working with Whole Foods to try and get the product on the shelves there. I hope they do!

Both the TruKid Sunny Days SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen lotion and TruKid Sunny Days SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen Water Resistant Face Stick are fantastic products and I highly recommend them. We will definitely be loyal customers!

I admit, I got a little pink one day, but that was my own fault for not reapplying soon enough, and I am very pasty white right now!

Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope
Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars great story that needs to be told, January 6, 2008
Ms. Bush did a great job of telling Ana's story. One thing that needs to be remembered is this book is written for middle school and up so it is not a graphic book. It does talk about her abuse, but does not go into great detail. It was still eye opening even for an adult. It is awful that so many children live Ana's life everyday.

It's also very dissappointing that some people are giving this book low marks because she is President Bush's daughter -- WHO CARES? This book brings to light some very important issues. And kudos to Ms. Bush for doing so.

Ana, who was infected with HIV at birth, lost her mother at a very young age to AIDS. Her father send her and her sister Isabel to live with his mother because she had a little more money and could better provide for the girls. However, the grandmother's boyfriend sexually abused them. Her grandmother began physically abusing her. Then her father died of AIDS. She bounces from a few homes and is seperated from her sister, finally she is placed in a detention center where at least she was free from abuse. I cannot imagine what this poor girl has gone through. It's frustrating that 1. these children have to suffer through this and 2 that there are monsters who abuse children. It's certainly an eye opener that this is a very real thing and everyone needs to do what they can on some level. Ana did not deserve to have her innocence ripped away, no child does. That is what Jenna is showing in this book. (and shame on those who are making this a political platform.)

The end of the book also gives some great ways to get involved in the community and even goes as far as to break it down by how much time you have to give.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect dolly for a baby/toddler, October 12, 2007
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Gund Sweet Pink Dolly (Toy)
My daughter has slept with Dolly since she was 7 months old. Now at 16 months, she "cares" for Dolly -- shares her snacks, sippy, paci. She will make Dolly clap, fix her hair, etc. Dolly get loads of hugs and kisses. Dolly has become her security blanket and snuggles with her when she sleeps. At bed time, she kisses Dolly and puts her in the crib before she nurses. When I put her to bed, she grabs Dolly. When she wakes up, Dolly is the first thing she looks for. We do not leave home without her.

Dolly has been through the wash several times, and has held up wonderfully! Her dress has some pilling from washing, but I guess you gotta expect that, but she is perfect otherwise. We have bought a back up Dolly, as we would be in big trouble if we ever lost Dolly. In fact, she had back up Dolly when I was washing the original and she had a fit when she saw me put Dolly in the washer, so she carried around both.

Dolly also is all fabric and very soft (as are all Baby Gunds) so is the perfect first doll for any little girl. No hard plastic features. And Dolly is very cute too. Highly recommended.
