3.0 out of 5 stars I normally really like VTech toys, September 13, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I normally really like VTech toys, but this one is frustrating to play with because it's SO unstable! At first, our kids played with it on the carpeted floor and it tipped over right away. Because the base of the "bakery" is much smaller than the piece that the cake stand fits on, it's going to be tippy no matter what. We put it on an end table, and that worked better, but it STILL tips over so easily!

The cake pieces are cute, and are different sizes, corresponding to the type of fruit - 1 kiwi, 4 blueberries, etc. Playing with the cake is fun, but it would be better if you could "bake" the whole cake in the oven, but that would require a pan big enough to put it on. The extra 4 pieces, and they do store in the oven, but the knife is quite strangely shaped and hollow!

For a similar toy, I'd recommend the LeapFrog Number Lovin' Oven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great toy that will fit with other Smart Wheels sets!, September 10, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What a great parking garage and roadway for your kids to use with their cars! I do want to note that this will take at least half an hour to assemble. Which isn't a big deal, unless your little one is waiting eagerly to play with it!! Our almost-two-year-old grandson loves this toy, and is very attached to the tow truck.

My only disappointment was that it comes with only ONE vehicle - the tow truck. The package shows multiple vehicles, which is somewhat misleading. You can buy other "smart vehicles" that will work well with this set, but the Fisher Price Little People Wheelies also are a good size to use in this set. They don't take advantage of the "smart points" on the track, but are a quick solution until we decide to invest in more smart wheels cars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little oven from LeapFrog!, August 18, 2015
This review is from: LeapFrog Number Lovin' Oven (Toy)

Pros
* This is a very cute product from LeapFrog - I'm not surprised - this brand always seems to hit the mark.
* Appealing music/sounds and toy itself is appealing to child to play with.
* Button on top of stovetop that sizzles when you put the pan on top - very cute!
* The play food is perfect and appealing for little hands. The pieces of food (slices of pizza and slices of bread) connect together and come apart, which makes the play more versatile and fun. Comes with a spatula for scooping or cutting the food.
* All parts store nicely inside the oven. Nice for clean up!

Cons
* While I know it is a counting toy, child is asked to identify the written numbers. This is more a task for an older child. My two year old won't be able to correctly pick the correct visual number when it asks you to move the dial to make the match.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Bluetooth speaker for when you're out and about!, August 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a GREAT little Bluetooth speaker! It's easy to charge, easy to pair with your device, and you're on your way! I love the shape of it, and how easy it is to hold. The edges are rubberized, so this baby isn't going to fall out of your hand, even if your hand is wet. The buttons are easy to figure out, and the sound is awesome for a small speaker.

We tossed this into the suitcase on a recent vacation and used it for the little ones to have music to dance to. It's very convenient. I'm sure an audiophile wouldn't find the sound to be the best, but that's not the point of this kind of speaker. A great speaker, easy-to-use, for a great price, from a company we've come to trust.

What an awesome idea! You can count on Crayola for amazing art supplies for your kids! I love that this kit has easy-to-follow directions, and a space in the printed book for a real picture of your child! We haven't received our printed book yet (my granddaughter is still working on creating her pages), and I will update this review when we've received the book!


Nature Bound Bug Vacuum and Critter Barn Habitat Combo Set

4.0 out of 5 stars This vacuum helps you catch bugs!, August 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Bug Vacuum is a very novel idea! The following pros and cons are about the vacuum. It comes with the Bug Box and that's similar to other Bug Boxes, with two extra things - there is a light and a magnifier to see your bugs better!

PROS:
*Such a fun gadget for our bug-loving child, who is always on the hunt for catching her next insect! She loves it!
* Easy to use - trigger that provides suction is easy to turn on/off with just a pull of the finger.
* There is a lever you can flip that keep the bugs in there once you catch them

CONS:
* Found it difficult to get the bugs OUT of the vacuum once they were inside. Especially spiders seemed to stick in there and even when you turned it over and shook it a bit, the bugs didn't come out. That was frustrating for our child who wanted to transfer them to her bug box.
**Suggestion: It would be cool to have a reverse vacuum button (fan) that blew the bugs out again. :)


Bedtime Devotions with Jesus: My Daily Devotional for Kids
Bedtime Devotions with Jesus: My Daily Devotional for Kids
by Johnny Hunt
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $14.43

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to daily devotions!, August 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is just wonderful to introduce your young child to the idea of daily devotions! You can start on any Monday, as there aren't specific dates. For each week, there is a devotional for each weekday and then another devotional for the weekend. Each page has a Bible verse, a paragraph, a prayer, and a summary statement. Short and sweet! The pictures are lovely, and there is a ribbon bookmark, which is a very nice addition! If you add this book to your bedtime routine, I suspect all the kids around will be happy to listen and participate, even kids outside the 4-8 suggested age range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great toy for imaginative play!, August 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This toy is just the thing for little girls! The age guidelines suggest 18 months to 5 years, but my 6 and 7 year old granddaughters LOVE playing with this as well. Before they can enjoy the fun, an adult needs about 30 minutes to put it together with a Phillips head screwdriver and 3 AA batteries (for the songs!). The kids can help apply the stickers and then the fun can begin! With the set, you get Cinderella and Belle and their princes. Belle's prince isn't the Beast in his beastly form, but you can buy that separately. Included in this set is a carriage that holds two little people. I suspect this carriage will be used to give rides to other FP Little People as well.

A couple years ago, we bought the Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Songs Palace, which is similar, but that set comes with only TWO princesses. We ended up buying more here on Amazon. You can't have too many FP Little People Princesses!


I Am Otter

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely story with equally appealing illustrations!!, June 30, 2015
This review is from: I Am Otter (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What an adorable picture book! This is the first of Sam Garton's "Otter" books - there is also one about Otter on Halloween and Otter in Outer Space. Otter is a very lovable friend that small children will definitely identify with. There is also a Teddy, and the "Otter Keeper", who is the boy who owns Otter. Otter and Teddy try to keep "Otter Keeper" at home, but alas, Otter Keeper has to go to work. Otter and Teddy decide to open a "toast restaurant" and I won't tell you any more!! This is the kind of book that adults won't mind reading over and over to their children!! :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great early elementary science book with a great story and wonderful illustrations!, June 30, 2015
This review is from: Water! Water! Water! (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great science book for kids from Kindergarten to about 3rd grade. Walter the warthog is learning about water, and writing things down in his notebook. The experiments he does illustrate the points well, and are easy enough for children to duplicate at home without buying a bunch of expensive supplies!

The first thing that I noticed when I read this book to my grandkids was the illustrations! The content and experiments can be great, but if it isn't fun to look at, young kids won't be interested. I really enjoyed the "textured" illustrations - it looks like there is real fabric of different textures in the pictures - just fascinating! The story itself keeps their attention as well.
