Bright Beginnings Premium Milk-Based Formula with Iron, 23.4 Ounce
Bright Beginnings Premium Milk-Based Formula with Iron, 23.4 Ounce

5.0 out of 5 stars much better, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is much better than a lot of the baby food products out there, just check the ingredient list: no corn syrup!! Yay. It was well received. I can recommend this one. Is it really premium? Not so fast... i'm not so sure about that. Its really not clear to me what makes this a premium baby food (I've had similar complaints with other Bright Beginnings product claims). I guess its the prebiotics.

Also, I'd like to point out. Please don't confuse prebiotics with probiotics. Prebiotics are "non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth and/or activity of bacteria in the digestive system". In other words, they are some kind of roughage for good stomach bugs.


Bright Beginnings Premium Milk-Based Baby Powder Formula with Iron, Stage 2, 24.0 Ounce
Bright Beginnings Premium Milk-Based Baby Powder Formula with Iron, Stage 2, 24.0 Ounce
Price: $20.49

4.0 out of 5 stars not keen on the corn syrup, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
To its credit, the first ingredient in this baby food is milk. followed by vegetable oil (fat). And then sugar. Which seems to make it pretty par for the course. Otherwise, it seems to be pretty average stuff. it has DHA and ARA, which is pretty much the minimum entry for anything that pretends to be good.

I guess the big thing is that I can't accept that its "premium" when it has corn syrup as a sweetener.... Of course, premium can mean anything, and in this case, i think it more or less means nothing...

4.0 out of 5 stars still testing but seems good, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We're still testing out this sculpting powder. For the most part it seems like a good and useful product. I would say that it has more hold than most products... which can be bad. I mean, if you want light hold that washes out easily then maybe this isn't good for you.

Anyway it seems to work very well and we've had no real issues.


SentrySafe PP1K Portable Pistol Safe

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really like the pistol safe. it works well and has excellent construction. I like the fact that it has the tether, so I can bolt it to a piece of furniture or a wall (I haven't done that yet). I don't think the tether would stop anyone from making off with the pistol safe, it would just slow them down, and thats usually enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars my kids love it, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Its kind of hard to use because its a pump bottle, but they were so excited to get it. They are old enough to want to use some hairspray, and this is working well for them. There is no way it would work for my wife, but, for the kids, its working good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant with some drawbacks, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a really nice design.

The legs snap together quickly, and then you pull the legs from the center. The top cap restricts how far they can go out, its a good design. I like to bend out the legs a little extra so that they kind of grip the floor, it makes it a little more stable.

The easel holders are great, they fold down and snap into place. A great design. There is no way to really see if they are level, it would have been nice to have some tic marks on the legs so you could measure it out easier. But thats fine.

I would also have liked to have seen a case/bag.

Its big enough to hold a sign welcoming people to an event, or, a tradeshow. Its nice and light. You wouldn't want to use it for displaying art, or for an art easel. Its not strong enough for that.

Bottom line: Its great for what it is. But its not good for everything.


Friedrich AP260 5-Stage Air Purifier (HEPA, Carbon, Plasma, Pre-filter, Multi-filter)
Friedrich AP260 5-Stage Air Purifier (HEPA, Carbon, Plasma, Pre-filter, Multi-filter)

4.0 out of 5 stars fits the bill, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We're in the middle of allergy season here, with a lot of things blooming. Pine pollen was everywhere in recent weeks.

We were trying those germ guardian filters for a while, and they work well. But it seems that the Friedrich works a bit better.

This is about the perfect size for a master bedroom, at 260 square feet. Thats about a 15 by 17 room. Its not large enough for some of the other rooms in my house (they show a living room in the Amazon product page, and its a bit small for many living rooms, especially in open floor plan houses).

It should be noted that you will spend $100 a year "maintaining" this filter: you have to replace the HEPA and Carbon filter each year. So, its not exactly "fire and forget". I don't know how easy it is to clean the filters to get more life out of them yet, but thats always an option.

Overall we are very pleased with it.


Vermont Organics Milk-Based Organic Infant Formula with Iron, 23.2 oz. cans (pack of 4)

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixes fast, seems ok, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Overall this formula seems to be ok. I'm part of the "any organic is better than non organic" crowd. But I agree that many companies add too much sugar. Really, the more processed something is, the harder it is to consider it truly healthy. But when it comes to baby formula its just part of the tradeoff. There aren't a lot of organic choices out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars with a slightly nutty flavor, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Vermont Organics is a relatively new brand that only carries organic varieties. Everyone has heard about organics, and the "No Potentially Harmful Pesticides, No Antibiotics, No Added Growth Hormones"

Food quality is the most important "garbage in garbage out" scenario, also known as "you are what you eat".

This soy based formula is for kids who have some milk intolerance as my son did. It is bean-based.

We had some problems mixing it but haven't seen the problems with the bad smell that other reviews have mentioned. It does seem to be a "sometimes" thing.


Colgate 360 Full Head Toothbrush, Medium
Colgate 360 Full Head Toothbrush, Medium
Price: $2.96

4.0 out of 5 stars 96% for the win, April 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
One supposes that the main way this toothbrush gets 96% of bacteria is because its kind of long in the head.

Its a nice toothbrush and worthy of 4 stars. Its a medium head which means you can't scrub too hard, but you shouldn't be scrubbing hard anyway.
