This is one of the most unique items I’ve received yet and should be on every expecting / new mother’s wishlist. The Baby Face Band is definitely one of those products you can say to yourself “Why didn’t I think of that?!”
Most cups + bottles, if labeled at all, are labeled with the child’s name. But these babies + kids can’t read! Children learn to recognize themselves in a photo between 12 and 15 months and that’s how the Baby Face Band was born. The Baby Face Band is reusable and non-adhesive patented silicone band that simply stretches over most sippy cups, bottles, water bottles, etc. Since you customize it at home, by placing your child’s photo into the water tight plastic insert, you can even change the picture as your child grows and changes!
I received a red one for my son and a purple one for my daughter. Now, since they do use the same or similar, cups + water bottles, there is no fuss over which one belongs to whom! These are easy to put on, to remove and to clean. I’ve had no problem with the picture getting wet insdie the insert to date. These are definitely a hit in our house!

There comes a time in every relationship when adult toys, books, DVDs, lotions + potions, etc can do wonders to spice things up. Even if it’s not the acts it’s self, but opening up the topics for discussion and great fun.
I recently came across EdenFantasys.com. So I gave the site a once over again and came across the sexy costumes that I think would be cute to try out for Halloween. Of course, they could be used year round as well, but it’s a great excuse to purchase one now!
I’ve always had a soft spot for football so my first pick would be the Football Player Female. This 2 piece “uniform” includes a football player Lycra crop jersey and lace-up shorts with belt in black, red and white colors. Currently, on sale for $27.99, this looks like a steal!
I also like the Racer corset. This one is a bit steeper at $39.99 and has a matching mini skirt that is sold separately for just under $18. It’s super cute though and would make a great addition to any race fans stash!
This is just the beginning of my search for great products + sharing my thoughts with others regarding this topic. I won’t say it’s all about sex toys, because it’s not. There are many other products to bring “me time” or you + your significant others personal relationship as a whole to a new high. So until next time, have fun + shop safely at a store that can be trusted, EdenFantasys.

I received this “I fart on the first date” tee from RoadKillTshirts.com. They did ask for my size and told me that I could request a non-offensive shirt if I wish. I did let them know I would like the receive a non-offensive shirt. Now, yes this shirt is not porn, contain explicit text, etc but it’s not the most family friendly specially for a mother of two kidlets in a relationship.
The shirt was sent to me 2 sizes too small so I did not even have the opportunity to try it on to test it for comfort. The screen printing (text on the shirt) was already flaking off a bit so I was really scared to even throw it into the washer. At $15.99, I think this is one that I would have to pass up. Sorry Road Kill!

Until this review, I had actually never even heard of Boogie Wipes. So what is it? My version: A very soft version of a diaper wipe with great smells to clean snot-nosed-kidlets 😉
Boogie Wipes are made with natural saline to dissolve boogies (mucus) caused by the common cold, allergies or otherwise booger-filled kid moments. Extra soft, alcohol, phthalate and paraben free, Boogie Wipes are available in Great Grape, Fresh Scent, Minty Menthol and Simply Unscented. Recommended by pediatricians as a gentle, effective alternative to a dry tissue.
These wipes really do smell great, especially the grape! My son, who has Sensory Integration Disorder, dislikes most of these because of the smell but the Simply Unscented works well for him. My daughter, loves the packaging and I no longer have to chase her to wipe her nose. She’s coming to me to get the Boogie Wipes to do it herself! We’ve yet to hit a cold/sinus season since receiving these but I can see purchasing them this winter. That’s when we can truely put them to the test to see if they keep the noses less red + raw!

My Big Star Chart
The My Big Star Chart is 11 inches wide by 25 inches high and includes a dry erase marker to personalize it for your child. There are 240 Colored Smiley Face Stickers for when they complete a task and 84 Gold Smiley Star Achievement stickers for when your child does exceptionally well. This chart is great for the 1 – 4 year old range (possibly even a bit older depending on the child).
My Growing Up Chart
The My growing up chart is also 11 inches wide by 25 inches high and includes a dry erase marker to personalize it for your child as well. There are 240 Colored 1-20 Stickers designed to help with learning colors + counting and 84 Gold ‘Great Job’ Star Stickers for when your child does an extraordinary job. This chart is meant for the 4 – 7 year old range.
My 3 year old daughter has the my big star chart + my 6 year old son has the my growing up chart. Both charts are great as they have stickers with cute illustrations that the children (even when they can’t read yet) can identify what they are to do. My daughter has tasks on her chart such as Use the Potty, Quiet Time, Pick up Toys, Be good at Bedtime and Share nicely. My son’s tasks are Feed the Dog, Pick up Toys, Be nice to others, Play time away from the computer (for more active + imaginative play) and Bath + Brush teeth.
Now that they can see these tasks visually and they see the stickers as rewards (I give them one dollar at the end of the week if they did a great job), they actually want to participate in these “chores”. My son has been getting up in the morning and wanting to wiz through everything on the list! One of these days, cross my fingers, I can get my daughter to be just as eager to do her tasks as well 😉

We had one, I repeat ONE, dry erase marker board that was about 8″ x 10″ that both my kidlets were constantly fighting over. I was tired of “wasting” paper by the kids drawing a picture and flipping to the next page; sometimes going through an entire notebook in an hour so I continued to let them
take turns fight over the one we had. So I was really excited when our KleenSlate Dry Erase Paddle Boards arrived!
Now there are plenty to go around for all! These dry erase paddle boards are easy to handle, light weight and have a place to store the marker in the handle. They are very easy to clean with the eraser on the marker’s lid. If the kids color the whole board in, we’ll typically clean it off with a dry cloth or baby wipe quickly. These not only come in handy for the kids quiet time play, but for homeschooling as well. We will be starting spelling classes after the first of the year so I can see the boards working out well for that. The paddle boards are two sided; one side is blank and the other side either has graph paper or elementary lined paper on them.
If you’re a homeschool family or just looking to find something of interest for quiet play, check out the KleenSlate dry erase paddle boards! Take a moment to LIKE KleenSlate on Facebook and tell them Simply Random Reviews sent you.

MixBook has a wide variety of Halloween party invitations. We are still not sure if we are having an actual Halloween party this year or not. So when personalizing the card to my liking, by adding photos of the kidlets and editing the text on it, I realized that I was able to remove the text for the date, time + location of “a party” and just entered general text into it. I pretty much changed into a Halloween Card rather than an invite. I left a space blank on the front of the card so that if we choose to host a Halloween party, I could handwrite the information on there.
I love the ability to edit these cards how I want them to look. You can change the text, add different photos into it, edit the photos coloring + size, add stickers to them and more! So head on over to MixBook.com to order your Halloween cards today!

While searching for Halloween costumes for my kidlets, my son set it in stone that he wants to be the “Black Power Ranger”. My 3 year old daughter wanted to be every fairy, princess, cutesy bug, etc that she seen. She’s been a fairy, a butterfly + a kitty cat. I wanted something different; OK, something that wasn’t so pink!
We came across a selection of witches costumes for kids. I thought that it would be a great idea, specially when she pointed out the Lil Candy Corn Witch Costume. When we received this one in the mail, the expression on her face was priceless.
The packaging looks just as it did on the website. Once opened, the first thing that I noticed was the difference in the sizing of the Black Cat Bag. In the picture of the website + the packaging, the bag included looks like it would be larger (at least the handle should have been longer). However, the costume material was made strongly; the colors were bright, as they should be. The costume it’s self and the hat fit as they should. The last one in stock was a size “2T-4T”. She is a 4T + it’s a slight bit snug, but will still work for Halloween. I tend to purchase the kidlets costumes one size larger so they can use them for dress up throughout the rest of the year, but this one will probably have to be handed down to another little girl in the neighborhood after the Halloween fun is over.
Overall, this costume was a plus. It’s definitely a possibility that I’ll head back over to the Costume Super Center to order that Black Power Ranger costume for my little man.

My son was excited to receive his School name labels kit in the mail this week. He loves his stickers + makes his claim around the house. When ordering the name labels, I was able to personalize them to my liking. My little man’s favorite color is red so I chose that. And for some of the labels, theirs a place for an icon. We chose robots as he really likes those too (what 6 year old doesn’t?).
